Planning Topic For Fall/Winter Contest 2014
« on: August 29, 2014, 07:34:02 PM »
Greetings!  I hope everybody is living a blessed life!  Activity around here has been declining this year.  I think it's time for another contest for the fall/winter season.  As was the case last time we had a contest, I am willing to put real money down for the prizes.  I want to do something that will make everybody excited, so I'm asking for suggestions.  Our video contest a couple of years back was a smashing success, so we could always repeat that or do a variation.  There's also, of course, the possibility of having both a prize drawing and a contest (though, if we go this route, the prizes for both wouldn't be as exciting).  Who wants to have the floor first?

Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to participate due to an intense work schedule (groundhogday), but I would suggest a (speed?)mapping contest, maybe a sprite drawing contest, or something else related to creating something for Chex.

Alternatively, maybe a tournament? Not sure if there are enough active players, though.

Well, since I have no talent whatsoever in designing for CQ...I'd say either a multiplayer tourney or a speedrun contest.

Well, I say video contest. I'm a filmmaker, and I have an idea for a chex quest video.

A speedrun contest would be fun!

I agree with all of these ideas. Speedrun or tourney :P

I like these ideas

As far as video contests, it's in my opinion easier and as far as I know cheaper (I think video editing software packages all cost money) to learn doombuilder than it is to learn video editing.

Speedruns and tournaments, though, are something anybody can take part in. Might be a better fit.

Hmm, meant to say speedmap or tourney. But yeah, i'm for any of those three (speedrun, tourney, or speedmap; or other speed creation thing), but I prefer tourney or speedmap :P

I think mapping contest would be fun. Although I would probably get 5000th place. Mainly because I SUCK at mapping.

Heh, I've got 33 maps of practice speedmapping, unless you mean coop then my idea of "speed" is about 4 days+ per map.

It just seems to take that long unfortunately, any less and I'm not satisfied with the result.

I created CPS01 in less than a day (not counting the Capture Point scripting) :P
