Custom Scenario and Game Mod Designing Contest

scenario%20contest1.png
Contents:



We are proud to announce the return of Voobly's Scenario Design and Modding Contest! If you are interested in taking part then please see below for further information on where you have to submit your entry and how the judging works. And of course, the best will receive prizes!

Three Competitions:



Competitive Scenario
  • Create an entertaining player versus player scenario, it can be 1v1, a team game or even everyone versus everyone, it is up to you how to balance the scenario. As a player versus player map, Voobly rates the widely played and favourite ones, so try to make sure your scenario is appealing to players with a broad skillset and fairly easy to learn, but at the same time hard to master. Of course, not everyone can be charmed with a competitive and grindy scenario, so try not to forget an aspect of fun aswell.
Competitive Entry Forum


Cooperative scenario
  • Design an interesting and challenging scenario in which a team of people fight against a common AI, whom they have to defeat in order to win the game. It can be either story-driven and full of quests or a defend the spot situation where the players struggle to survive. It is up to you how the players fight against the AI as there are a lot of options to choose from or if you are creative enough, maybe you will come up with an entirely new vs AI game genre.
Cooperative Entry Forum

Game/Data Modification
  • Create an entertaining or a helpful game/data modification that could be used to play random maps and custom scenarios, rated and non-rated. The aim of this modification is to enhance a player's gameplay experience, either providing them more fun than usual or making their average match more enjoyable by eliminating certain factors from the game. Total conversion and expansion alike modifications are most welcome aswell, if you have enough time to finish your project before the deadline.

Competitive/Cooperative Scenario Judging Criteria
  • A maximum of 100 points from criterias below and up to 5 bonus points, if the scenario is meant to be played with a game/data modification.
  • 25 Points - Creativity: How unique is the scenario compared to other existing scenarios and how does the gameplay or mechanics differ.
  • 25 Points - Playability: How complex or straightforward is the scenario, how much effort has to be put in to win a game or complete a game.
  • 20 Points - Replayability: The measure of fun, how big is the desire to play this scenario again and again.
  • 15 Points - Balance: How evenly matched are the starting conditions for each player/team and if someone had a need to catch up, how possible it is that he can win a game from a bad position.
  • 15 Points - Design: Aesthetics of the visible locations of the map and effectiveness of triggerwork.

Game/Data Modification Judging Criteria
  • A maximum of 100 points from criterias below.
  • 35 Points - Creativity: How unique is the modification compared to other existing modification and what sort of interesting mechanics and gameplay changes have been done to the original game.
  • 35 Points - Playability: How complex or straightforward is the modification and is it usable for every random map and/or custom scenario.
  • 30 Points - Replayablity/Reusability: The measure of fun when playing a game with it and how useful it is to random maps and/or custom scenarios.


Rules

  • You are allowed to submit only one entry per category, choose wisely, if you have multiple possibly entries per category.
  • The scenario or modification must be your own creation, edits of an existing scenario or a modification are not welcome.
  • If you are not the main creator of a scenario or modification, but a contributor nonetheless, you may still submit it to the contest as the prize will be split.
  • Before submitting your entry please test it thoroughly and make sure there are no game-breaking errors and bugs that can give unfair advantages to any of the players.
  • To win a League for your Competitive Scenario it must not have any booters, you are still allowed to enter with a scenario that has them, but it will not be featured in a league, if it should win.
  • Your Game/Data Modification has to be uploaded to Voobly Modification Centre and it must have passed the "waiting for approval" stage.


Additional Information

  • If you have any questions about the contest, feel free to ask any of the judges for help or simply post in this very thread and Voobly Staff will help you as best they can.
  • If you have any scenario design or modding related questions, then either make a thread in Mod & Scenario Design forum or ask help on [You must login to view link]. And if noone really responds, then I suppose you will have to use the links below and find a solution yourself.

Some1 please edit my map I forgot how to do everything in 15 yrs.... Archers Blood... I want to see what the cause and effects are from a simple change. Add Ballistics to the start of the game. It wont eliminate runners but it may give other strategies a fighting chance which is originally why that map was made.

It is not about us contacting you, it is about scenario creators or modders presenting their work for feedback and possible prizes/publicity and/or a ladder/league.

You are not limited by the Patches/Mods you use for your scenarios. However, for you information Voobly Staff seem to have decided to wholely skip the 1.4 patch and go with 1.5 whenever that comes out. If your scenario has many player-slots, it may be inconvinient for players when launching it, since sometimes people forget about proper settings and then they have to go back and so forth. Basically, it is up to you, personally I doubt 1.5 will be ready by that time.

Also, I have a 1.4 scenario of my own and I feel like I am not releasing it before 1.5 to the general public, however I have tested it numerous times already. In my opinion, it is not worth creating the hassle with the patch changing all the time. But it is up to you how you do it.
