First off I want to thank Hinalyte for bringing up this idea. We lack a good amount of unique tileset in our graphics section. I would like to hope that this contest will help close that gap.
General Contest Info:
You must create a custom tileset for a pre-chosen theme. And submit it before the deadline. The theme for this contest is: INSIDE : Create a tileset that surrounds the theme of "Inside". It could be inside a cave, office building, house, body, etc
Contest Starts on March 19th, 2014 at 12:00pm CST and ends on April 2nd, 2014 at 11:59am CST. (2 Weeks)
All entries must be posted in the Submission thread by the deadline. No late submission will be accepted. Submissions must include the following in a .zip folder:
-Map16 page for FG gfx (and BG gfx)
-A sample level anywhere from 1-3 screen long
-The ExGFX files
-You are allowed to use only 1 Map16 Page for Foreground Graphics and 1 Map16 Page for Background Graphics
-You may not change anything related to the standard SMW coins, ? blocks, turn blocks, Yoshi coins, Midway point tiles and pipes. The idea is for anyone wanting to download these themes later on, can use them with the general Super Mario objects.
-You may not break the palettes of said objects above including status bar, message boxes and Mario's Palette
-No ripped gfx allowed
-No custom sprites, ASM, or custom blocks
-Animation is allowed
-Do not edit sprite gfx.
-You may not submit something you've already submitted to the site.
-All tilesets may be submitted to the gfx section. AFTER the contest is completed
-Users will be graded on their submissions for Graphical Style. A foreground is only required for the submission, however a custom background to go along with it will get some bonus points.
-Points will be taken away for missing tiles, broken map16 "act as" settings, missing files, etc
-Points will also be given for originality. For example. a generic grass land tileset (something we have many of) may not receive as much points for a tileset for inside a airplane (something that doesn't exist)
Them be da rules. Now go make stuff. If you have any questions, you can visit #office on the caffie network as we will be using this channel for communication for contests.
