Concept and Organisation:
  • Host: yi en
  • Starting from May, the event will begin on the 1st of every three month.
  • Introducing the new format of the theme:
    • This is the new format of a sample table. You guys can training for it.
    • Maps must follow at least 1 red, 1 blue and 1 green monthly criteria. Orange are optional for extra points. Let's take an example, I pick A3(red), C3(green) and C4(blue) to fulfil the minimum requirements, meanwhile I think my map also fulfills E2(orange) so I decided take that as extra challenge for points.

Entering the event:
  • This is the official level editors contest for plazma burst 2. A new thread will be made for each theme table.
  • Creators can start making their map based on the new updated format of themes from the 1st of the month and have approximately a whole month to submit the map.
  • Only one submissions is allowed per person/team. If you give me more than 1 submission, I will just replace it before the deadline strikes the clock.
  • You can build your maps with others! We are not limiting this contest to 1 creator only but in a maximum of 4 creator. If you're working with a team, we advise that you work out who is going to ultimately post the project into the contest before getting started. Gather your friends, build together!
  • Presentation is important! Add lots of screenshots showing off your build, write something about your work, maybe write a description of your building process and in general to increase your chances of making it into the winner.
  • Don't use anyone else's work. Enter only your own maps.
  • Keep the submission thread clean - if you have a question, Contact me on Plazma League Server.
  • Don't edit your map other than minor bug fixes once submission deadline is over.
  • You had to submit the .pb2map format files to me, and I will help you upload it to another account which stores all corresponding season map contest submission for fair voting.
  • When submitting your map, remember to follow the submissions template - this makes it much easier to determine if your map is suitable.

How to submit your maps?

Please submit in this way, and private message me through discord and forum pm with the format below:
Code: Select all
Your PB2 username
Your Discord username with tags.
(optional) your thumbnail of your submissions
your map title
map description
submission requirement table code (such as A1,B3,C6)
.pb2map file (stop giving me xml file cuz xml can crash things away and away)


Update:
Starting from season 5, we offer each participants an additional space which they can use forum bbcode to decorate their submission advertisement, to enhance their map appearance and produced some magic which the official site map description can't provide of.

If you don't know what am I talking about, basically this but merging all the submission into a megapost, meanwhile 1 submission per thread, and what do you like to insert in that empty thread is your choice. (Or I make it for you)

Voting Period

Everyone is eligible to vote their favorite maps. But how?

We will be using the plazma burst 2's map rating system, which you can vote the map in range of 1~5 stars in game mode (as I already disabled the comments of the map page.)


Then the equation of the voting sections will be detailed soon after the judging period is over. So everyone can vote at a range of 1~5 stars as you wish and it's totally anonymous so no worries. Meanwhile in poll section it is also anonymous so don't afraid to cast your vote to your favorite ones!

Updates: Removed the forum poll as the score was switched to thread designing scores.

FAQ Sections:
    Q: When will results be announced?
    A: After 2 months. For example, May results will be announced on July along with the next theme.

    Q: What makes my map suitable to be in submission?
    A: The map must obey at least 1 red, 1 green and 1 blue (total 3) criteria. It must also be given a .pb2map files, non-offensive and cannot contain any major errors that make the map unplayable.

    Q: Is there extra points if I can able to follow all 25 criteria?
    A: No, except the orange boxes.

    Q: Tell me more about the 5x5 table and the red, blue, green and orange criteria.
    A: Every theme we would have 7 orange criteria and 6 red, green and blue criteria respectively.Red is story settings, Blue is additional building which is needed to add in your map, Green is game play restrictions and Orange is Bonus challenge. One map developer must accomplished 1 red, 1 green and 1 blue criteria in order to eligible to participate to the event. Most of the time red, green and blue are big directions (such as aliens, war, city etc) meanwhile the orange criteria are often hard and challenging (such as no slot N weapons, must beatable in what difficulty, map resize restrictions). But by doing and completed more orange criteria will grant you more points at bonus section.

    Q: Can I find some people to have a collab to submit the level editors event?
    A: You can participate the map event through solo or cooperate mode with no more than 4 people. (Honestly I am encouraging you guys do that, as a good map consist a lot of collaborations.) Thus, please get a leader and send me the submission and specify all your members, and your team name.

    Q: How is the map being judged?
    A: Now we have to make it in 3 categories:
      i. Voting
      ii. Specialist judgement
      iii. Criteria
    Voting is simple enough, all of the eligible submissions will appear there, anonymously and randomized. So it could be a good idea to show off your signature details in your submissions so people would try to guess who made this map. Besides, we offer the players to guess which submissions belongs to who. And we may reward the player based on how many correct assumptions have been made.

    Specialist judgement is a discussion and more professional judging towards some judges I had invited, and every month we would specify who is going to be our judges during voting period.

    Criteria is simple —— If you accomplished more orange criteria, more bonus points will be given.
