So I had intended on leaving this poll open for a few hours longer, but #17 basically dominated (30 votes to 11). Therefore, the final map set-up will be as follows:

Main Map: #17

Fire Submap: #3
Cave Submap: #17
Ice/Sky Submap: #17
Worst Submap: #3
Best Submap: #17
"Empty" Submap: #7

I will post the final map at some point later today, at which point this contest will be officially closed. Thank you for your participation!
Sweet! Just like I hoped it'd turn out.
It's a shame #7's Best Submap won't make an appearance, but oh well. #17's is fine too.

Geez, almost three months earlier than last year! I hope not too many people decide to submit levels next year (at least not so many as to exceed the ROM capacity.) It would be rather awkward to have two moderate length hacks and two overworld contests.

Incidentally, what do the winners think about using #7's Best submap? I realize #7 didn't win the poll, but so long as we're mixing and matching, why not? From what I can tell, that submap is a community favorite. Besides, #7 is already involved due to the secret submap.

I agree, although there was no official vote from what I've seen on IRC most people consider #7's best submap to be the best. If the winners don't mind it would be cool to use it.

I will not say anything beyond this, but to quell the people asking: the idea behind #7's best map will be seen in the final version of this hack.
Oh. Well that's good to hear.
Nice to see #7's empty submap won, really liked that one.

I really like the results. Would be fine with anything from #3 and #17 though, to be honest - both are very well made.
Once again, thanks for participating (both voters and overworld designers). Here is the final map that will be used in the 8th VLDC, barring a few minor tweaks + graphical changes:

Good choices. Can't wait to play it all!
It looks awesome.

Sooo......we're not gonna do anything to the star?
Losoall: Magi said he'd remake it so it'd look better.



So, other than 'world 10' stuff and music, what else exactly is needed to be done until release?
The star will be redrawn, yes. As I said in my previous post, a couple of other graphical tweaks/changes will also occur.

KTB: Aside from those two things, nothing. I need to fully prep the completion tracker (WYE made a great patch for it that displays your progress on the overworld). Once I get those, beta testing will begin. My goal is to start said testing at some point during this upcoming week.
I had a big rant typed up at all the people who commented on my entry (#13) just to complain about the wall (yes, it's bad. I know. I ran out of room and palette space. Sue me.) but I'm over it now. I still think a lot of you could be way less nitpicky, though.

It wouldn't be useless.

Yeah,yeah,yeah... I like this final map and I think I'll see it. What do you say? I can't wait to play the game!

Believe what you want, not every sentence is true.

Haters will always be haters and try and make you blue.

But blue is a pretty color, it doesn't have to end.

Even if the hate, is hidden within your "Friends".

Uh... I'm not sure on why you were writing a big rant if the wall did look bad. This is a contest. #3 and #17 were both better overall and didn't have any nitpicky issues (except #17's weird star).
I can't tell if Luigi is sucking up those munchers or the vacuum exploded and all of the munchers are being released. Can anyone chime me in on this?
It's just that, before this contest, when I was making my entry I was really proud of how my OW skills were coming along and was thinking, "Hey, I might actually have a shot at this!"

Then I saw the other entries and my pride disappeared instantly. I just got really depressed and angry since I got no votes while some clearly worse entries got votes that they didn't deserve. The voting and results for this contest were just an entirely depressing experience for me.

And it's also frustrating that all but two of the already few people who gave feedback on my entry just basically yelled "OMG WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT GIANT WALL DOING THERE IT'S HORRIBLE" without even commenting on the rest of the entry. That's not helpful at all; that's just being nitpicky for the sake of being nitpicky.

Anyway, this is just making me angry again, so I'll stop now. This is just the perspective of a frustrated entrant who didn't get any recognition he deserved.

tl;dr: I started out hopeful, then my hopes were dashed, and I felt depressed and angry. Also nitpicking.

Hey, I actually don't think your entry was "bad", and I'm pretty sure others felt the same way. It's just that some others were generally more popular. It's just a contest, nothing to be ashamed of. And if you practice a LOT and make overworlds and such often you might have a much better chance at winning in the future. :)

When people were talking about that wall in the middle, they were only stating their criticism. I saw nothing in any of the people mentioning it that would imply "yelling" that I can recall.

And about the "nitpicking" thing, they're only trying to be helpful. ANd to be honest, it's such a large wall that goes through the entire main map that I really don't think it's a small enough detail to qualify as "nitpicking". And even if it WAS, I think the best way to look at nitpicking (in general) is that it's good enough that the only negatives people can find in it are the "nitpicks". (IMO >_>)


tl;dr Try to take ALL criticism and do your absolute best to improve upon it in the future. Who knows, maybe you'll be the winner of one of these contests in future years if you practice and try hard enough #ab{;)}

...God that ended up longer than I hoped it would be. My point stands though.
