PostSubject: Official Warcraft 3 Map Making Contest   Tue May 31, 2011 8:33 pm

_-*CLAN TMMM IS HOSTING A MAP MAKING CONTEST*-_

Please register to join the Clan TMMM map making contest below by leaving your name and the names of your partners and your affiliation to the clan tmmm (Unless youre like bacon or backseat and have been in the clan foreverrrr)

Start Date: June 1st; 12:00am
End Date: August 17th; 12:00am
Judging will occur during the week after the end date.

Rules and Guidelines:

The contest has a limit of 2 people to a party
  • the scoring guidelines will be harsher for parties
  • in general a lot more is expected of maps created from teams

1 Map entry per person
  • You cannot submit a solo map and then another map as part of a team
  • You may submit multiple versions up until the end of the contest
  • only your last submission will be graded

You may ask for help on small things such as triggering and importing.
  • Unless you're part of a team, you should be doing the vast majority of the work.
  • Ideally, you should ask people who are not competing.

Only maps 1/4 of the way begun are allowed to be used (Check with seren before using a map you have already started on)
  • You may not use maps where the 1/4 done was by someone else.

You may submit any type of map, although making a maze is suggested and recommended.
  • However, you will not be penalized for submitting something other than a maze.


Feel free to post below, private message me or email me at segal35 (at) gmail for questions and clarifications on Rules and Guidelines


Judging:
There will be 3 judges who help determine your overall score. I'll post the judges once I figure out who they are (they won't be competing) The judges will grade based on:

Creativity [5 points] - Did you think outside of the box? You don't have to create a completely new game, but was your map actually different from others? Is it obvious there was time spent in conceptualizing the map. Ex. A maze called Maze of IDK would probably be disqualified for having a retarded ass name.
Triggering [5 points] - You are not required to use any JASS, but it is expected that your map be largely leakless and run well even in longer games. You can only earn up to 3 points on perfect triggering alone. For the last 2 points, you must create something(s) interesting using triggers.
Aesthetics [5 points] - Is the map visually appealing? Terraining, doodads, models/skins all contribute to this (along with other similar factors). Also considered is whether or not certain things make sense in respect to your map. Anyone can get stuff from the hive, but does it make sense in your map?
Overall Design [10 points] - Is your map fun and interesting? This is scored differently for each map type. IE for a maze, this would be based on how fun/interesting each level is.

The judges averaged opinion will count as 75% of your total score
If any categories change I'll post the change. Nothing will change after the first week, and as long as you're trying to make a good map, the changes shouldn't make a difference.

Popularity - This will count for 25% of your total score. It's based on how fun (from 1-10) everyone (except the judges) thought your map was. There are no in depth explanations here, just a 1-10 score for each map from each person.

Prizes: The winner will
replace KevKevQaz as tmmm shammy (if a shammy or I win, then they get to choose someone else to be new shammy (I have to approve it though))
get their map on autohost (if they want)
become the winner of the first official TMMM map making contest (that I know of) and get your map posted in a thread that will keep track of all map contest winners.

Runner up gets a runner up mention in above thread (which won't exist till the end)

Why Kev?:
 

Adjustment to the rule on map submission


Guideline for Map Submission

You must create a post in here writing as much as you want about your map. If you're worried that the judges won't get or misinterpret something you did, this is the time to adjust that.
The basic format is something like

Name:

Author(s):

Percent Completed:
(if not 100% a breakdown of whats not done. ie triggering, terraining etc)

Bugs:

About:

Because this post is going to be used to represent your map (even after the contest) you should make it fairly spiffy (especially in case you win). Screenshots are a plus. A list of features, objectives and a changelog are all good things to have.

The more complex the map the longer you should make the post
For a basic maze it'll probably be pretty short though

For a custom hero survival / builder / versus i expect it to be fairly long Razz

To submit your final map, email it to Clan_TMMM@hotmail.com

Again, for questions and/or concerns please post below or pm or email me

The people who are registered are:

KnightOfGodz
Hoffman

The judges are currently

Pat1487
FFSlayer
(and unless I can find someone who's not canadian) marksoccer

they can make any (reasonable) adjustments to the scoring for judges that they want

if you have questions or want to ask their opinion about how your game is coming along, they're the people to ask





Adjustment to the rule on map submission and instructions for actual map submission

You may submit multiple versions up until the end of the contest
only your last submission will be graded

Take me out. I've got too much going on at the moment and I'm going to be gone from the 17th to the 25th. If the end date gets moved back to later, then I'd make something, but otherwise, Hoff out.

well first off its a map making contest, not necessarily a maze making contest

second of all, don't be so cocky
i played all your stuff and its pretty solid, but far from amazing
you haven't played anything by any of us

i'd never heard of drift king
so i just played it

it was cool
did you do a combination of momentum with a hard cap on it?

but the point thing didn't really work
you made more points circling for 5 seconds then you did for beating the level

im not totally sure what you're saying
and before i reply how i wanna reply i wanna be sure
so
do you mean that until i try bribing you with a better reward you won't grace us with your map?
or
that until you're physically/mentally in a better condition you're going to wait on it

if you're get the feelin that i'm not entirely fond of one of those options, you might wanna go with that feeling

Quote :

idk what to say
i guess i'm a lil scared that you've been following me for so long that you'd be able to say that
or maybe what i wanna say is "who cares"

the xjass thing is pretty admirable, but i still would like to see you enter a map. the code you posted the other day looked really interesting.
whats wrong with your map? the only unreversable bug i know of is where your entire map is rewritten with every variable/function becoming scrambled
but thats only happened to me once and very rarely to the entire community
pat or i could probably fix whatever went wrong
