Another level competition?

Post by ckguy » Sat Mar 29, 2008 17:46

Who wants to do another level competition?

I had a great time playing through the levels in the Keen 1 and Keen 2 competitions, and it would be a good reason for me to do another Keen 1-3 level, which I haven't done in quite a while.

So, who wants another competition? Who would make a level?

And, also, importantly, what episode do you want? The obvious choice would be Keen 3, but we could do another Keen 1 or Keen 2 competition, or maybe even a well-known mod. I was just playing XkyKeen2 again, and was thinking about how it would be fun to do a level in that. Or A New Dope. Or Episode Y. Or Lego Keen. Or Monkey Business.

We need to get the PCKF back alive again!

(edit) I'd be willing to arrange this if we decide on something. (As in, I'll collect the levels, make the world map, throw the .zip together, etc.)

I'll make a level. Keen 3 might be a good choice, yes. There are many mods that'd be interesting to make levels to, too. I've made level pack to XkyKeen1, few years back. :) I'd be more than happy to see more A New Dope levels. :D Lego Keen level pack would be fun.

I'm up for whatever is decided upon. :) New Dope would be fun.

I'm willing to make a level for whatever game/mod is picked.

I'm up for it. Need to stretch the old level editing muscles. Or some other failed analogy.

Making a level for a mod could be pretty interesting. Lego Keen sounds like a good one, then again so do the others.

I'll do this too. :)

I think doing a mod would be fun. I might do one of the XkyKeen episodes, espeically XkyKeen2 (probably remains my favorite mod.)

I was kind of leaning towards XkyKeen2, because I think it is my favorite mod. Any objections to this? Anyone prefer a different mod, or prefer an original episode? Xky, how would you feel making another level for your mod? :)

And lastly, what do you think should be the timeframe on this, guys? How long should entrants have to make their level?

I vote either Lego Keen or XkyKeen 2... of course, I might not get a chance to make a level, or even to play the finished levelpack...

I'd love to make a XkyKeen 2 level. I think about 1 to 1½ months would be plenty of time to get one done. Does anyone else think this is a good amount of time, or is it too long?

I'm okay with XkyKeen2... It'll be fun to revisit it. :) I think a month and a half would be too long. I'd lean more towards something like 20 days (3 weeks) myself.

XkyKeen2 sounds good, yep, definitely. :) Am interested to try that one out.

In my earlier post, I was leaning more towards a month than a month and a half, but now that you mention it, 3 weeks seems like just the right amount of time to me.

All right, XkyKeen2 and three weeks it is! I'll start another thread to that effect.
