PostSubject: Invasion Competition   Tue Sep 21, 2010 6:05 pm

Hey Everyone, I decided that I want to start making some competitions for this community. Through doing this we can get great new ideas and innovations for the community.

To start off the competitions, we are going to be starting with Invasion maps.

The only requirements are that it needs to be done in Forge World.

If you need any help with the basics of Invasion refer to this article

http://www.bungie.net/News/content.aspx?type=topnews&cid=28649


The Competition starts today and will end on October 2nd. That gives you a little under 2 weeks to get your final entries in.

On 10/2 we will open up some polls and let everyone be the judge.

I'm also adding the incentive. The the person who comes in 1st will receive a 1600 Point card.

Good Luck

So as a start for everyone I will make a Map with the objectives built already. That will make it so you only have to build the level instead of having to worry about objectives too. If you have any questions about how the objectives work let me know and I'll explain them.

Ok so I've figured out how to make Invasion objectives, Gates, and also making things spawn on specific phases.

So if you need any help with the objectives or you have an idea that you need help with, let me know.

I have the Pre-built Invasion Objectives built and on my File Share the third phase is built as assault right now, but you can change is to a CTF style if you'd like

To represent the different phases, the Mongoose is Phase 1, the Warthog is Phase 2, and the Scorpion is Phase 3

My map is almost done. Just a few tweaks needed. Hyper said he'd help me with the spawn zones and bounderies tonight. I'm also trying to get in a test match before the competition to clear up any balance issues. If anyone is able to help out with testing it, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

If you don't think your map will be completed in time or you're entering later. Please Message me.

I may extend the final entry date. If we don't have enough entries.

How many entries are we looking for and how long would we be extending the competition? It may give us more time to recruit judges and other maps.

Well right now I only know of 4 people submitting. I would like to see more. If we don't have enough by the 1st, I was thinkin of giving it another week to 2 weeks.

Well, I've encountered a problem with my map that will likely cause me to not be able to finish in time for the deadline on this contest. >.<

I wanted to thank everyone that helped me test my map. We were able to get a good size group and it helped me to find some imbalances that I need to correct, but overall I'm happy with how it played. It's funny that both me and Hyper lost on our own maps, but the other team pulled it off. Fun times....lol

We also tested my map and I have to say a big group makes a big difference. Now I am making some adjustment to help with the balance of the map.

Ok....so I made a few tweaks to the map. I changed the bomb settings and the location of the spartan laser. I'm looking to try and get another test run tonight. We should try and get a big group going and check out a few custom maps if available. Hit me up online if you see this.

OK so as recap. The competition ends this week on the 9th. All submissions must be posted by Satruday Oct 9th before 12:00 am pst.

So you east coast guys get an extra 3 hrs if you are procrastinators.

Judging will be done on the following week. We are still in the process of getting judges. But we will have the results of the competition by Saturday Oct. 16th.

We will be opening up polls to see what everyone else thinks of the maps as well as Topics for each map posted. Please be as brutally honest as possible. If you hate it, please tell us why. We all love to hear the feedback as to what we could do to improve the maps.

If you have any question about the competition of what the maps will be judged on, please message me.

Oh and I also wanted to advise people to check their map before uploading it to your files share. Forge seems to have a funny way of not saving changes sometimes and sometimes saving changes you didn't save. I have experienced this a few times, but it just may be me. I had to tweak and re-upload my map several times, but I think it's all fixed and ready now.

Do we have judges and do we need more players?

Ok so we're changing to rules a bit to bend to the current situation.

We currently have 2 submitted entries for this contest, We are going to extend the submissions date indefinitely for now. When we get a total of 10 different user submission for this contest, we will then close the contest and judge to maps.

I am opening a Rating Section for the 2 submissions right now. Please go vote an let us know what you think

I don't know about you but I advertise this site and forums any chance I get on other websites like xbox.com has 1 or two threads, I have one on Xbox360achievements.org, I also put a link in my bio on my 360 profile. Helps get the word out... An idea though would be to post a topic on bungie.net or xbox 360 halo reach forums about your contest.
