[MAPS] MM8BDM V6C "Bounty" - Signups open! Deadline 01/Feb/2024
« on: September 23, 2023, 07:57:15 PM »
Hey all you Mega Man fans! Are you ready for another mapping compo?



"Bounty" is a map competition aimed at replacing four maps for future versions of MM8BDM: MM2CRA, MM6WIN, MM2FLA, and MMWTMWS.

Download here: https://allfearthesentinel.com/zandronum/download.php?file=mm8bdm-bounty-full-v1a.pk3


Without further ado, the rules are as follows:

Prizes:
- Highest scored maps of each stage will replace the current core map.
- Highest scored map overall will be awarded with a MM8BDM Architect Medal for your forum account.
- Other winner maps will warrant a MM8BDM Architect Runner-Up Medal for your forum account.

Signup Rules:
- Signups are mostly a formality to help me keep track of everything from an organizational standpoint. 9/10 times I will take submitted maps.
- Signups should be done via this thread.
- You can have others sign up on your behalf, so long as they include a full copy of your signup and you are not banned from the forums.
- Signups should include the following: your name, and which maps you are signing up for. 
- You can sign up and submit at the same time.
- You must sign up only for the following maps: MM2FLA, MM2CRA, MM6WIN, MMWTMWS.
- You can edit your signup, but inform me if you do so.

Map Making Rules:
- A submitted map must be made by you. If you choose to partner with another mapper, they must submit the same wad as you.
- Maps must be in standard MM8BDM format, and should be designed as if they were MM8BDM v6b maps. For more details on what that all entails, check the spoiler below.
(click to show/hide)

Custom Content Rules:
- You should prioritize the textures that are already in the map! But additional textures are allowed so long as they supplement the existing textures and are easily sourced to a canon Mega Man game.
- New props, including enemy props and gimmicks, may be added. These are subject to the same canon checks that the textures are.
- Custom stage music may be added, but it will not remain if your map is a winner. Boss, intense, and victory themes will be removed instantly.
- Custom content (including props, textures, scripts) must not overwrite any content already in MM8BDM v6b.

Map Submission Rules
- Please submit your maps via Cutstuff PM or Discord DM to LlamaHombre. The former is preferred, and maps can be sent via websites like MEGA or allfearthesentinel.
- If somebody else signed up on your behalf, you may submit yourself or through that person.
- Your map must be either a .WAD or .PK3 file containing your map and all added custom content.
- Your file must be no bigger than 5MB.
- Finished maps must be submitted before the deadline: February 1st 2024, 11:59:59 PM EST (Eastern Standard Time).
- Finished maps can be updated and resubmitted before the deadline.

Judging Rules
- Maps will be judged according to their general strength as a map for MM8BDM v6b / v6c.
- This means a number of factors and modes should be considered. Deathmatch, Last Man Standing, Duel, Teamplay, etc.
- I'll host testing sessions later, likely focused around DM, Scorched Earth, and Duel to make sure every map is tested thoroughly.
- Maps will be judged on the following categories (stolen inspired by CMCP/TTT judging...):
 A) Layout/Spawns (good map structure, good map flow,good spawns for teamplay, good weapon/energy layout). Worth 50 points.
 B) Visuals (good texturing, good art style). Worth 30 points.
 C) Authenticity (representative of the original stage. shows both creativity and restraint as needed). Worth 10 points.
 D) Functionality (working scripts and no map bugs). Worth 10 points.
- Total score is out of 100 points.
- Judges will have one month to finish scoring, subject to extensions or truncations depending on what is needed.
- If judges suspect a map was made to troll the contest, they can vote to ban the map from the contest. This vote must be unanimous.

#ReworkMM2FLA
Never have I seen a map go through so many fan edits or reworks despite the official map staying almost entirely unchanged. There is a better way to make slippery maps. There is a world where people can slide without bumping into other players or into pillars. That world is possible which is why I am asking YOU, the cutstuff community , to write in MM2FLA for this competition. Thank you.

This seems interesting! I have great vested interest in seeing this play out; though likely not as a mapper, personally. I've put forth my survey submission and am excited in seeing where this goes, community input is always real nice to see from this community!

I had previously done my own version of MM4DW1, at that time they told me that they were not interested in changing any vanilla maps.  :(
But with this event I was wondering if I would return to that map, improving it with a new version so that the judges could evaluate if it will work my map.  :shock:

I was always interested in making a map for this game but it never happened and this event could be a good excuse to try it again.  :cool:
Also fill out the form you published and if you want me to create a map from scratch, I'm also interested.  :mrgreen:

I'm giving you a link and one pic of my old version of MM4DW1 in case you want to download it:

Re: [MAPS] MM8BDM V6C "Bounty" - UPDATE! Survey 2 out now!
« Reply #7 on: September 26, 2023, 03:00:34 AM »
Hey all, a quick update since I'm sleepy.

I've closed Survey 1 since it's been nearly three days and the vote rate has slowed down significantly. I received 51 responses, which is a lot! It's enough to make some informed decisions for Bounty, and regardless of the incoming results I think there is at least one map that I am safe locking in. You'll hear more about the results for Survey 1 after I close Survey 2 on Friday.

Thank you all so much! I hope you all are prepared for...

Survey 2: https://forms.gle/TAMx6x1fhWKy97S59

This polls the most popular write-in votes. Please fill it out, and thanks again!

All of the below data will be reported based on the votes received from the two surveys. All things considered, this went really smoothly!

(click to show/hide)

Something to open with right out the gate is that I'm not making another Discord server for this. Put simply, I don't want to moderate it, especially with my role as a judge demanding limited information given to me. Please understand and by all means, discuss the competition and your maps in places that I and the other judges cannot see.

I've updated the original post with the rules. Please read before signing up and working on your maps!
Your deadline is February 1st 2024, 11:59:59 PM EST (Eastern Standard Time).

MM2FLA will not know what hit it

might add another map depending on how long MM2FLA takes me but tbh I was really hoping MM8FRO would be here since I have ideas for it
