Shitty Map Contest returns!

#1

Post by Gardevoir » Mon May 27, 2013 8:04 pm

New Shitty Map Constest is about to begin!

Hello there dear community, starting from next month, a new Shitty Map Contest is going to begin! I decided to lead it myself with a group of friends. We are going to see who makes the best (or rather, the worst) map this time!
Some time ago, back in the times of Skulltag, TheMisterCat had an idea of making a contest, where people could send their horrible maps and get them judged. The worst map of the contest was the winner. However, Shitty Map Contest #2 failed, due to fact of kinda dumb thing you had to include on your maps (polyobjects? Seriously?). This time, we are gonna make it old-school again(eh, if community wants all map formats... then they shall get all map formats). We want you to make Single Player/Cooperative maps. They have to be... well... shitty, however, we won't tell you how shitty they should be. We will decide a winner after judging each map in different aspects. You think you got what it takes to make an awful map? Well, we will see... so, here are the rules!
Spoiler: Rules: (Open)
1) The contest begins on the 1st and ends on the 23rd of June. (Judging all maps might take another week.)
2) If you want to sign up for the contest, post in the thread.
3) You can sign up from 1st to the 21st of June. From that moment you can submit your maps to 23rd, however, if you won't manage to submit your maps before 23rd you will get disqualified.
4) You can submit a map by posting a link to it on forums or by PMing the organizers, if you want to keep them as a secret*.
5) You have to call your maps. While posting your maps, please include a name. You can do that by simply stating the name of the map in the post/PM, or by setting a name of your .wad file, or you can use MAPINFO/DEHACKED in order to do that**.
6) Only 1 map per contestant. Once posted, you cannot do any changes to it.
7) Maps have to be made from scratch.
8) Maps must use DOOM2 as an IWAD.
9) As people wanted, all map formats will be welcome. (However, please, do not abuse 3d floors or dynamic lights)
10) Maps must be made for Single Player/Coop players vs monsters gamemode.
11) Maps must contain an exit.
12) Maps have to be doable without use of cheats. (Unless they piss us off enough to do that.)
13) No custom content allowed.

*All maps sent to us will be revealed upon the end of the contest. We might also put them inside one wad and release them as a Megawad. (If we manage to get so many maps, of course.)
**MAPINFO/DEHACKED is optional. You don't have to include it.
We welcome all mapping talents! We want the whole community to join this event! No matter if you just learned how to do a map, you already know how to do them, or you are a mapping god, we want everyone to try. So, when the sign ups start, do your best people (or worst) and remember, we do this for fun ;)

Sign ups start from the 1st of June!

If you got any questions, feel free to ask.

Not this time, but, if this contest will be successful enough, I will more than happy to hear suggestions for next contests. Besides, you can always learn something new from doing such maps.

I suggest removing the map format limitation, this was never a part of the original challenge and allowed for some more interesting entries.

I have a real steamer on my hard drive that was originally for the "Let's make a BAD Megawad" project. I was too late to the punch though, I'd like to submit my assmap here. I'm wondering what trash others will come up with!

doom_kid, you are not allowed to submit existing maps. you are supposed to design a map specifically.

Id would join this but you have the format limitation and custom content ban.

It put me off unfortunately as I had an idea in mind :(

Well then, seeing as all people want that. Okay, all map formats will be welcome! However, do not abuse ACS and other stuff that much.

This is why I allowed MAPINFO sir. :p

I got a similar idea some weeks ago, but I had no idea that something like it had been running before :P
my personal idea was to be anything, instead of limitation to maps though (also who could do the best rofl).
I hope the best for this, although I won't make a map for this myself, as you will slaughter me for my stupidness in making maps :3
Spoiler: Modding Qualifications (Open)
ACS: If it's of ridiculous scope and of suicide-inducing complexity then it's the thing for me.
DECORATE: I can make more or less any godawful hack I need. Doesn't mean it works, though.
Maps: I only map for testing ACS.
GFX: Not enough time or experience.

If you need help, advice or similar, feel free to send me a PM. ;)

Seriously? You don't want to take part in a SHITTY MAP CONTEST because of the STUPIDNESS of your maps? For all you know, STUPIDNESS will be one of the judging categories...

Also, Mifu, you are not excused.

No custom content? I can't add high pitched sound effects and fart noises? Can't even change the music to something shitty?

As much as that sucks, I'm still gonna give it a shot. Hopefully I can get it done quickly.
