Mapping competition! Summer contest

Post by homeyduh » Sat Jun 06, 2015 11:04 am

Ever wanted to be the next Spaz or DKH of mapping? Ever wanted crowds of pilots screaming your name as you kill them in your map? Now you can!

I'm announcing a quarter-annual mapping competition. Anyone can join and can submit up to 3 maps to the competition. Submission deadline for this first contest will be July 1st. After that voting on favorite maps will be open. Voters can choose up to 3 maps to vote for. Top 5 maps will be subject to rotation ladder matches at the DCL for a week. A second poll will be held at the DCL forums by pilots who have played the maps in a competitive setting. After a week of playing and voting, the winner will be announced. Revel in fact that you're the top mapper of the competition as your name gets etched into the history of our game!

Currently, this contest will be focusing on D1 maps, but D2 maps and D2XXL maps will be accepted as well and judged just the same. This contest is currently FOR FUN, so have fun with it!. For tips on mapping out competitive grade levels, check out Drakona's post over at the DU forums. We also ask that mappers do NOT revise their maps once entered. Doing so may throw off the voting process as the version we download may be different than the one the mapper expects to be judged. If you plan on submitting more than one map, either submit them all at once our in separate posts if the maps aren't ready at the same time. Again, do NOT edit previous posts. Another thing, this contest is to stimulate new map creation so the map you submit must be less than 6 months old. Also, you can't submit maps for someone else. The author of the map must submit their own map. Best of luck and happy mapping! Here is the submission thread at the DCL forums.

Must it be a level that has not been published before, right? And only multiplayer maps I guess?

Yes, it has to be at least 6 months old and authored by you originally and yes, MP only. D1, D2, and D2XXL maps allowed.

And now for my last-minute entry!

http://www.enspiar.com/dmdb/viewMission.php?id=1047

Spectrum (the D1 level) focuses on various colored rooms. It also sports instant full shield and instant full energy rooms (though they have puzzles attached). Finally, try and reach the Fusion.

Blast Radius is the D2 level. It is focused on missiles, bombs, and Gauss (hence the name). There is also an accessory room below the middle of the arena.

I hope I was in time!

Sorry Lightwolf, but the deadline was today so it's too late for the summer contest. You can submit it for sure for the Fall contest. Also, you needed to submit the map into the DCL forums in the Map Submission thread. I believe it said that on the OP :/
