Thanks to everyone who participated in this. About 75% of these came in at the last second, so I'm happy I actually gave an extension. Vote in the poll for your favorite entry out of the ones below. The winner will be determined whenever I decide to close the thread.

Feel free to discuss the entries in this thread too, if you wish (though do not reveal the author if you ARE the author and/or know who the author is - I'd like to keep it as anonymous as possible).


ENTRY #1:




ENTRY #2:




ENTRY #3:




ENTRY #4:




ENTRY #5:




ENTRY #6:




ENTRY #7:
I like 2 and 3, but the colours in 5 are just 10/10 and also swastika world.

4 also has some nice ideas but it looks a little simple, still cool tho.

I'm willing to place 50 bucks that I actually do know who made number 5.
EDIT: Damn, I was wrong.
It wasn't yogui.


Number 6 also went slowly downhill :(
I am very unsure on which one to pick however I do have two overworlds there that are in my mind. I will give myself a little more thinking time.
None of the others really catch my eye so I'm going with simple yet eye pleasing #4.
I think the worst is 5, to me it's just a bad joke.

Am I the only one who saw that coming?

To be honest, as much as I liked the design and creativity of that one, I'm not sure if it would be a good idea to have a swastika and a naked girl to represent the VLDC compilation for reasons like well, just see above.

I still haven't decided btw, there's a good amount of decent ones though.

E: went for 3.
#1 looks eh. The cutoff in some places is incredibly distracting (pallete wise). the desert and the ice palettes in the overworld are way too bright compared to the others around it. It's hard to tell what is going on in some of the submaps, as well

#2 looks ok. The main overwold feels really...off though. I see a path in the ice world that seems to run into a wall, random green islands in the mountain area, and the blue pipes feel shoehorned in. In general, it feels very cluttered with too much trying to go on. The custom tile use in the submaps is nice though.

#3 looks good. The pallete work is ok, and the submaps are well put together. The overworld seems really spread out. That's not a bad thing, much better than #2's clutterness, In fact, It's the best of the 3 so far.

#4 seems overly simple. One submap uses the original pallete, and the one above it is just....well its a path. The bottom 2's paths are sqaure, and overall everything in this one is just eh.

#5 will probably win. Not the biggest fan of it, but look at the poll :V The submaps look awesome, but i just can't figure out what's going on in some of the submaps (level nipples, anyone?) Overall the colors are nice, and everything is pleasing to the eye. Though i think he forgot to place the switch palaces...

#6 looks like the person made an overworld, spent all of his time on it, and then realised he needed to make submaps an hour before the deadline. The submaps are bad, period. Even though the overworld is the one of the best out of the 7, this one has no chance.

#7 seems to be the most, i don't know how to put it, normal? The palette is normal, the layout is normal, the paths are normal, but is that a bad thing? It's pleasing to the eye, designed decently, but doesn't do anything too spectacular to draw your eye. I don't think it'll win, but it's still decent.

For me, the way it'll swing'll be #6, #4, #1, #2, #3, #7, #5.

I'd voted for 5 except for

Yeah, that's one of the reasons why I choosed 7 and not 5.

Okay, my layout looks ugly.

This pretty much solidified my opinion. I could not put it in any better words. Now that narrowed me down to only one which I have now voted for.
Oh wow. 5, of course! The color choosement is very nice, the shapes are different. I love the worst and best world ideas =)
I think I'll vote entry #7.
It was hard to choose between #3 and #4, but I've chose #3 - I already had voted this one before but I didn't post here that it was me. That one has excellent shapes and it doesn't go wild on custom palettes, and that it's yet well done.

In addition to #5, I don't know if I'm the only who thinks that the ideas for best and worst submaps of it are very forced. Overall, it's good besides those.
was originally gonna go in-depth like shadowfire did (and was actually over halfway done with my post), but i'd rather list my thoughts short and flat how i like my girls

1. sux/good
2. neat
3. c00lio
4. boring
5. wwwww
6. b4d
7. safe
I'm going to say both #5 and #7 are the best on here. They both look absolutely amazing, though I would recommend killing that lewd map and replace it with the one from #7 honestly, but that is just my opinion.

#7 looks too plain.
As leod said on IRC, #5 represents SMWCentral the best. It also looks the most stylized so I'd think it would be more memorable than the others.

--------------------
But 7 looks decent though, even it's too plain.

Voted for 7, 5 is also cool, but what is it with that naked woman?

Who cares about political correctness? 5 is beautifully crafted with the palettes and landscaping. It's overkill in expressing the worst of the worst by making it both visually unappealing and offensive, but I found that hilarious. The female body actually is a good symbol for best and the censorship with the paths is brilliant. I dunno, I think less about the 'sexy/nsfw' aspect of it and more of the 'free and rhat feeling of the brisk clean air on your skin' aspect: in the end, both interpretations boil down to the idea of feeling good, which is how you should feel when you play the best.

So yeah. 5.

Dude, that's exactly why I'm going to vote for #7. People shouldn't take shit so seriously.
#7. It looks like a decent overworld and someone took their time on it.
