The Metaroom Fixing Contest!

Hello!

I wonder if there would be any interest in a tiny contest before the CCSF starts?

I am willing to make a small metaroom with a silly, simple background slapped on, some teleporters in/out and elevines.

Then I could hold a contest for, say, a month, in which the community can try to fix up that room as much as possible. Try to make it a place were creatures can thrive. Your possibilities are endless: Garden Box, new/existing plants, animals, agents, vendors, whatever you can think of. You're even free to draw a new background that fits the outlines of the old one. (I'd totally encourage that, my drawing skills are... blarf? xD)

At the end of the contest, all participants could get... uh, dunno. Maybe we could compile the end result into something semi-useable and release it on some day of the CCSF? :p

Any feedback? Yay/nay? :P

That's a great idea! I bet the finished metaroom would make a great CCSF submission. ;)

I think it should also have bugs deliberately added that people have to find and fix. :P

Defiently Yay!

Possibly the room could be so simple that no platforms are sealed but something you have to solidfiy by using Gardenbox (ie. there's a hidden grind of "air" that ones can GardenBox into solid ground). The con with this is that I know some users are too intimidated by the GB to use it, so this may exclude people.

I have some other ideas too, but I'll spare these for private conversation... If I remember, hurrhurr

Well I thought the idea is to use the map editor, sprite editor and that. But I suppose it could be made with Gardenbox in mind too.
This sounds like fun, I might have a go :D

I'd definitely be down for this!!! Official contest should have links to metaroom editing tutorials just to make things easier for people who want to go down that route.

I serve none but to rock.

Customizing metarooms is one of my favorite things to do in C3/DS and I absolutely love this idea! So let me hunt down some wiki links for you: Link to the "Creating a Metaroom" series, map editor tutorial and links to the map editor and the CAOS tool.
