Not sure if many are interested and if it has already been discussed but are there any plans for an Automatic Level Design Contest this or next year?


I think the last one was in 2015

--------------------

One of the posts here imply there's very little interest in a contest like this at the moment. Maybe next year.

When we polled the userbase earlier this year about what contests they'd like to see again, the Automatic Contest was one of the least popular choices. It's something I'd like to see again, but it doesn't make sense for us to host a big one when it seems like there's very little interest.
I have an idea, maybe it's terrible, maybe it's been done before.
A title screen design contest (whatever name). Where you can't edit the title screen movement, but you have to create around the vanilla movements.

It was an idea for a 24hoSMW contest. Wouldn't mind such a contest happening again, though.
I have a Discord server as well!

Back to working on my VLDC12 level!

Wasn't that the one where the point was to make a title screen using Mario's default movements tho? It would be kinda rad to just have a straight up custom title screen level contest.

Are you an ASM coder and want to trade "resources"? Private Message me for details.
(I also offer SMW Custom Songs in exchange for ASM! I don't do ports though unless it's to remix.)

Want progress on 100 Rooms of Enemies: The Nightmare Edition? Go here to see.

Are you a sample porter and wanna help with 100 Rooms of Enemies: The Nightmare Edition? Private Message me or Mellonpizza for details. Expect trading "resources" in exchange. 4 more left.




We do need a title screen design contest where you can do w/e you want.

BTW, there's not much time till mid-July and the starting date for VLDC12 is still not announced. I already have a conception for my level.
I have a Discord server as well!

We're thinking of pushing VLDC12 to August to both let people have a moment to breathe after C3, and to also give us a moment to breathe after C3 to finish planning it. I'll update the calendar once we've decided on that for good.
No news on the final decision?

We were actually finishing up discussion of it today but I hadn't updated the calendar yet so thanks for reminding me. VLDC12 will start on August 1st. That gives us plenty of time to finish planning.

it can be extended because I'm taking part too and I wanted to spend some time longer?

I don't understand your question.
Well, what Infinity is saying is if the VLDC can be expanded, since he would need extra time to do his entry or something like that. I think he's talking about the duration of the event.

That was my guess but I wanted to be sure. They PMed me about it with a better explanation.

We're shorting VLDC12 to 4 weeks + a couple days because we firmly believe, based on what we saw last year and with contests since, that there's little reason for the contest to last 6-7 weeks again. We saw most people excited to work on their level for a couple days at the start, and then very little activity until the final days, at which many people begged for an extension because they'd put off working on their level. Older VLDCs had submission periods of 3-4 weeks, and we believe we can return to contest durations like those while still having a good turnout.
As mentioned in this thread, look forward to 72hoSPC #7 coming August 7th!
Super Famicompo from when can it start and until when?

Now that VLDC12 submission time ended, is there any idea for the undecided Autumn and Winter contests?

I checked the older calendars from 2019 to 2017 (2016 wasn't available) and since there was no Christmas-themed in any of those years and 2019 had a Halloween-themed contest, I'd expect the 12DBCLDC this year.

The last (and currently only) OLDC was from 2017, but this year we already had KLDC2020, CLDC2020 and VLDC12, and as it was said it is a more niche contest, so I don't have too much expectations for it happening this year, OLDC2 for 2021 appears more likely.
So there is VLDC12's overworld contest in late 2020 after VLDC12's results. Mad Scientist ASM Contest after Super Famicompo 2. Also, there's BLDC2 and HLDC in the year 2021.
