I'll have a try at this. I haven't made much of a full overworld before, but I'll try and get out as much as I can. But not today.

NEED SOME ONE TO PUBLISH -ZERO TWO- THEME
Almost done with my GFX, so I have a question...
Is there a "You must keep the OW 'Mario' Mario" rule? I could go either way, but just want to know :P

Follow me on Hermitscape for random bits of game design talk and pixel art, or even request something for me to draw.

Nope. You are free to change it to whatever you like. Heck, it may even help you earn some creativity points.
Ok I have one quick question. One of the submaps I've had planned for my hack if I ever end up finishing it is going to substantially change as the player plays through its levels. In this example, would I be expected to just have the "after" version on the submap, since the "before" part would not look good at all with all of the levels on it? Its not a big deal but it might effect my entry.
Awesome, a contest which I will enter and possibly do well in!

Yes, that is fine. Just make sure you post a reminder that you're showing the 'after' version when you post the link so that it doesn't slip my mind (and trust me, it will).
Heh, I actually had a small overworld design project. I think I'll use that. I think I'll do well in it.
im in this contest...it will be lotsa fun...and its my first contest entry to!

I WILL ENTER THIS.
I AM GOOD IN OVERWORLD DESIGNING.

I'LL START NOW.

EDIT: Fear my ubersmexy palette.


Use it if you want or something. It's only a palette.

Hell yeah. This was the reason I've had a file called overworld.smc" on my desktop for a year now... Heh, I've even finished some of it already. :D

One question though:

It can include whatever you'd like, as many levels as you'd like (as long as they are all a different level number)


Different level number? I don't see why we can't just put level 0 on every tile, enable walking in all directions and check "No entry if level passed". After all, it's the overworld that counts, not the levels...
Clarification would be nice.

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


 
I think the point of the contest is to make an overworld that looks so good that you would want to have it as an overworld on your actual hack. That means having a nice usable overworld with different level numbers that you could actually enter, not a bunch of Level 0 tiles with the "No entry if level passed" checked.

Throwing out a random guess out there.

No-one can really use these overworlds without permission, but I doubt people will give permission.

And if the authors will, they can replace the levels.

Do the levels have to lead anywhere?sorry for the odd question.

--------------------
Yes, they have to lead to different level numbers. I used the "replace all with test levels" patch for this.

And unless the creator's going to use their overworld in one of their own hacks, I don't see why anyone wouldn't hand theirs out freely.
So, let me get this straight. We have to make each level something other then level 0? or each one different?

--------------------
!!!!!!!!!
I've been waiting for a contest like this!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm jumping for joy now!!! I wanted a OW contest for so long!

--------------------
Let me clear something up about the levels.

If you want to leave them all level 0 with the "Level has been Passed" flag, then fine. If you want to name each one, that's even better. I am completely open to either - I would just prefer if you did the second one. Besides, even the level names can help spice it up.

As I said, totally up to you. I won't really be judging that.

Oh, okay, good. I'll probably make them unenterable, but with a name.

Are you the only judge? I've seen many overworlds, and I think I could make a pretty good judge. ;) Let me know if you need an extra one. :)
