The MMM Ongoing Challenge Event!

Hi everyone. If you're like me you are riding the hype on the 1.3 update, I'm creatively excited and intimidated by all of the things we can do with our levels now, especially considering the two new characters! Now that you've all had a day to soak in the new content I wanted to announce that Wrecking is allowing me to run an ongoing community event where we make levels within a set of limitations and rules. Great level design and creativity can emerge when you are forced to use only a handful of tools, and I think the rules we put in place will make it easier to decide which direction you want your level to go in. Some previous examples from when I've done this with friends of mine include:

Creating a level that:

- only uses assets from Mega Man 4 and 5

- has no enemies

- starts you off with no weapons


For More details on this check the google document linked above. For discussion use this post, and use this topic for submitting your entries viewtopic.php?f=15&t=3775. We look forward to seeing what you guys send us!

Sorry, but I don't think I can make it. ONLY 1.3.0 stuff? Don't get me wrong, this update is great, but...

I'm pretty sure they mean "Focus on content from the new update" not "Only use content from the new update"

Nope, he said "Only use".
However, you can use these:
*Powerups
*All Characters
*Three-Square Tab of Gimmicks

From the document:
Our first challenge will celebrate the new assets in 1.3! You will create a level that focuses on the new content! From weapons to enemies. (you are however allowed to use any of the backgrounds or tilesets for aesthetic purposes. But we definitely encourage usage of the new ones.)

Playing as Mega Man himself is fine, but since the new characters are the forefront of the update it’s probably best to use Proto Man or Bass this time around. If you feel that Mega Man himself is best suited for your level that is perfectly ok, don’t force some of the new stuff into your level just because you can.
It seems like tilesets/backgrounds are free reign from any game but it would still be nice to see how much "focus" is wanted on the weapons/enemies/gimmicks. Whether that be more than 50% needs to be 1.3 content or 100%

Me and Wrecking discussed whether or not it should be strictly just 1.3 gimmicks/weapons or just a level with a general focus on them. I'll talk to him and see what he thinks. There is a lot of new content for levels though, so I still think you'll have good creative reign with the limitations as they are.

Why the Submission Thread is locked? Are you checking our levels and THEN keep getting submissions?
Also, sorry Bucket.

Alrighty, I've talked it over with Wrecking and he believes we should stick with the rules as is. I still think you'll have a lot of room for creativity as I said earlier.

I heard people with some doubts about the levels being split among the judges. I'll help clarify.

The levels will be judged as levels, not related to any specific type of level. If I got a level type which I dislike, that doesn't mean I automatically hate it.

If it has objective elements of a good level and if those elements are done better than any other levels, I'll make it my pick, and I'll defend it to death if another judge has subjective criticism about that level.

My fellow judges and I will critique the levels objectively, not subjectively. That meaning that we will knock away any personal biases and focus on objective criticism of a level. The introductions, aesthetics, placements, difficulty scaling, etc.
Any subjective points we will avoid.

The winner of this contest can be any type of level, as long as it's objectively good, so it can be played by anyone and it can be enjoyed by almost anyone, if your level doesn't make the draft then it's due to the level's actual problems, not what type of level it is.

I hope this helped clarify this, and I hope I answered in time.

Do not be scared away to build what you want, after all, this is a contest for fun, good luck and happy level building!
