Ho ho ho! For this year's Christmas event we're bringing back the SMWCentral Level Secret Santa!

This event is essentially a gift exchange, but done with levels instead. Everyone comes up with a level idea request, and then sends it in a PM to me. Eveyone who submitted a request will also get someone else's request, of course!

The ideas can be a level theme, gimmick, or both. Here are some examples:

-A beach level with shark enemies
-A hard sky level with bouncy mushrooms

About the requests

-Cannot be too advanced. If it requires coding ASM, it's too advanced.
-Cannot be too restrictive. If you're practically already designing the level yourself in text form, it's too restrictive.
-Nothing offensive.
-Be open-minded about what your Secret Santa decides to do with your idea.
-Only one idea is to be submitted, obviously.


Submitting your idea:


Send Santa your request with the phrase "Secret Santa" in the subject (minus quotes). The deadline for these PMs will be 4:00 AM UTC, December 11, 2015 (11:00 PM EST, December 10th). Please send your idea earlier if you're unsure whether it meets the requirements, so that we can give you a second chance to PM Santa before the deadline. If you wait until the last second, and your idea breaks the requirements, you won't be participating. Sometime on the 13th, all the level requests will be shuffled and PM'd back to a random participant.

For the designers

-Chocolate level design is allowed (music, ASM, graphics, etc), unless mentioned otherwise on the level request.
-Cannot just be a level you've already created, we want the levels to be personalized.
-Should not make something too difficult unless requested in the PM.
-You should work alone on the level.
-To those of you who got the cool version: no joke levels, please! Levels should still be fun/completely playable.

Submitting your level:

Upload your level somewhere (you can upload it to your file bin, but feel free to upload it somewhere else if you really want to keep your level secret) and PM Santa with the phrase "Completed Santa" in the subject. If you wish to remain anonymous, please say so in the PM, otherwise your name will be listed together with the patch. This must be done before 4:00 AM UTC, December 24, 2015 (11:00 PM EST, December 23rd). Later, the patches will be posted, and everyone will have a chance to play the level they requested and review it. Badges will be given out to everyone who made a decent level (by hack submission standards), or received a good review.

Please remember this isn't a contest, so the levels won't be judged, in a way, so try not to make something too advanced or you won't complete your level in time. Please follow through with making your level after you've made your request! Feel free to use this as a discussion thread, but please do not post your ideas here, it would spoil the surprise if someone found out who their secret Santa was.

Have fun, and a very merry Christmas to everyone!

This is dope, been waiting for a revival of this one for quite a while #tb{:)}
Count me in, Mr. Claus!
Never done this before, but I'm really excited!
Hope this helps me as a practice to the VLDC. I'm excited to see which I'll do!
Sounds interesting, might as well give it a shot.

Oh hey, it's this thing again. Well, I'M NOT DOING IT BECAUSE I HATE EVERYTHING I'll try it. Could be fun. I assume we're not allowed to give a choice between two or more possible levels (for instance, "I would like either a beach level that uses dolphins and Sidesteppers, or a forest level with fog and a lot of plant-based enemies")?

I'm working on a hack! Check it out here.
Ŀ3+s ðø î+!

Always liked the concept of Secret Santa in the past plus I always liked most of the level design events here anyway. Plus there's the added excitement/anticipation of the unknown theme.
YES

It's back! Man, I loved this contest when it first arrived. Hopefully I'll be able to please someone this year with whatever request I receive.

Been there done that.
I'm definitely entering because of the Auto Level Contest that I didn't participate! Yaaay!!!
Please, SomeGuy712x...
PLEASE!!!!!!!!!
List of my SMWC ranks
My hack:
Hell yeah. Always thought this was great concept, glad you decided to bring it back.
If this turns out well, we should totally make this a tradition.

here's hoping i get a good secret santa and recipient
Hell yeah! I enjoyed this the last time it happened. If I can think of an idea, I will probably enter.

I got a bit suspicious when I saw the latest user was called 'Santa'. Then I got even more suspicious when Santa got a custom colour.

This sounds interesting, so I'll have a go. Now, to get an idea!

Wait... I got one!

something is supposed to go here

Entering for sure, this should be fun. I just hope I won't disappoint whoever I get with their request.
Nice to see this contest again, by the way. I really like this idea. #ab{:)}
Count me in! #w{=3} Hopefully it's easy for me to make, because me importing custom Layer 3 is hopeless. #w{:<}

--------------------
Polaris is cool. I think. Can't confirm.
Sent my request to Santa yesterday. Can't wait to see what kind of level I'll get do make, this will be fun.

A bit late but yes, as long as those are not two separate level requests it's fine.

Also small alteration to the rules: now you will know who your secret santee is (will be informed on the PMs, other possibly important additional info will be found there as well #ab{;)} ).
