Hi everyone! Welcome to the SMW Central Creativity Convention for Summer 2023! My name is Princess Peach, but my friends just call me Peach, and since we are all friends here, you can call me Peach, too!
I'm your host for this summer's Creativity Convention, and I can't wait to see what you all have to showoff this weekend!
So what's the "theme", you ask? Well, if you can't tell... It's all about ME! Your friend, Peach! I'll be here celebrating C3 with you, and you get to browse the amazing C3 submissions whilst using the beautiful pink scheme we created for you (courtesy of my friend, AmperSam). And that's it - nice and simple. Go about your C3 business while embracing the Pinkness of Peach! 🌸🌸
While C3 is nice and simple, apart from the pretty pink everywhere, we may have some special trophies available during the voting period from some new voting categories, awarded to only the "peach-iest" of threads. What are they? Ohhh~ You'll have to wait and see!
I have one more teensy little thing to say... There are various tags you can tag your thread with in this year's C3 forum. Make sure you tag your threads with the appropriate tags to ensure you are eligible for the correct voting categories. It also makes it easier for people to find certain types of threads!
Here is a list of all the tags, and what they mean!
Super Mario World - For all your threads relating to our favourite game, Super Mario World.
Non-Super Mario World - Every kind of other ROM-hacking or adjacent thing (including Yoshi's Island, SMBX, etc), game release (such as an indie game you've worked on), non-SMW resource releases. Not threads for art, drawings, etc. That's covered further down.
Standard - "Standard" difficulty SMW and Non-SMW hacks and games
Kaizo/Pit - "Kaizo/Pit" difficulty SMW and Non-SMW hacks and games
Graphics - For Graphics intended for use in SMW and ROM hacks
Music - For Music intended for use in SMW and ROM hacks
Samples - For Musical Samples intended for use in SMW and ROM hacks
Soundtrack - For Soundtracks intended for use in SMW and ROM hacks
Patch - For ASM Patches intended for use in SMW and ROM hacks
UberASM - For UberASM intended for use in SMW
Sprites - For Custom Sprites intended for use in SMW and ROM hacks
Blocks - For Custom Blocks intended for use in SMW and ROM hacks
Tool - For Tools intended for use with SMW and ROM hacks
Work in Progress - A Work in Progress project, such as a WIP SMW hack, or a game in development
Demo - A Demo release of a Work in Progress project, should be dual-tagged with Work in Progress
Full Release - A Full Release of a hack or game
Resource Release - A Resource Release that fits the criteria of at least one of the above resource type tags (ie, Graphics through to Tool)
Screenshots - If your thread contains screenshots of your resource, hack, or game, then tag it with this tag
Videos - If your thread contains a video showing off your work, then tag it with this tag. A Trailer for a release is different to a Video; see below tag.
Trailer - if you have curated a special trailer to showoff your hack or game, then use this tag instead of Video
Art - Art covers everything from your drawings, to your custom made songs that aren't intended for use in ROM hacking projects. If you have created a banging Drum and Bass tune you want to showoff, this is the correct tag.
Requests - If you intend to spend your C3 making things for others, then use this tag.
Miscellaneous - Only for the most unusual threads. Only use this tag if you really don't fit into any of the other categories above.
Aaaand that's all!~
All I have to say now is have a fantastic C3! I hope to see you all very soon! 🌸
