Hello all,

Well within the next month Dizzydoll and I will be setting up another 1 Room challenge but we are stuck. We cant decide on a place for the Theme so we said we would leave it to the public to decide. :D

Now the choices are...


Peru
Atlantis
Oriental
Egypt
Young Lara (Location chosen by you)


Now the voting will be simple. :D
Here is an example.

Atlantis - 3
Asia - 2
Peru - 1

Also if you chose something like Atlantis which has no objects that have been updated from the first game, me and Dizzydoll are going to remake them. (well at least try to) :p

Thanks and Enjoy. :)

I already spoke to MyRaider4Life and I am definitely entering this :tmb: I have a feeling it will be bigger than the last 1 room challenge.

1. Atlantis
2. Young Lara
3. Peru

lol my bad I voted wrong!

3 - Atlantis
2 - Young Lara
1 - Peru

Wow. The easiest might be Peru, as we have a whole Btb08wad+tga to take.
Though Atlantis might be interesting too (if it's not exactly as in TR1 and more like Aniversary)
The Egypt TRA-textures are beautiful, but we allready had this in the first challenge (at least two chose them)
Too bad there's nothing cold ore something like Tinnos in it but for now my votes are:

3 - Peru
2 - Atlantis
1 - Egypt

I like oriental, there is quite a lot one can do with oriental design... :D

So that is my first choice.

Young Lara is nice because its different.

And of course, Atlantis is outlandish and awesome.

So.

3. Atlantis.

2. Young Lara

1. Oriental.

Did I do that right? My 3rd choice, 2nd choice, and 1st choice?
Oriental is the one I vote for strongest...

I am pretty sure Atlantis will win! I am thinking of ideas for my level...

If it wins I will be using TRX textures since they are gorgeous.

Here are some tips and tricks I used last time in my one room level!


decide very early on if you want to stack the second room ABOVE or BELOW. Light all rooms 32,32,32 and wall off each section so it is easy to light
make sure you are familiar with how many objects you can put in your room! Don't try and over-do it.
If you REALLY need more objects in your room, but you have surpassed the limit, place it in the other room, and move it up or down, so it goes through the ceiling/floor and ends up in the other room. But it will flicker and have weird issues!
Take full advantage of the biggest room you can possibly create! Big does not always mean good, try and inject as much gameplay as you can into it.
Light using 1 sunbulb and 1 lightbulb, I did this in every section of my last level and only used 8 sunbulbs and 8 lightbulbs.

Seems that Atlantis will be used. But I have a question, Atlantis is not a realy place so I mean, do we have to stick with a texture pack or we can use whatever we want ?

MyRaider4Life

We will be doing it like BtB, So we will supply you with the textures and the wad. :D

You will only be able to make your level out of one large "room" in the LE. You can add walls and things to make it seem like different areas, but it must only be one room in the trle map. Hope that makes sense.

Hey Guys, I am going to cut the voting here because if I leave it any longer then god know what will happen. But yeah I have tallied up the votes and here are the "winners". :p

Atlantis - 47
Young Lara - 23
Peru - 19
Oriental - 18
Egypt - 13

So looks like everyone who enters will be getting a fresh new set of Atlantis objects. :jmp:

Enjoy.

P.S: The actuall competition will probably start somewhere between the last weeks of July or the first few weeks of August. :D

larafan25
27-06-09, 23:04
^thats like exactly when BTB venice starts, I probably won't enter because I plan on winning BTB and taking over the world sooo......

:)

but if you do need anything, I have two atlantis style pillars, a shatter vase, and some wall panels:)

God Horus
27-06-09, 23:19
^ BtB is a very hard competition to win :p Some of the best builders enter and win every year.

So people can choose, if they want to enter BtB or the 1 room challenge or both.

It took me 2 weeks to finish my last 1 room level (with testing and everything). This time I am probably going to finish it in 2 weeks too. (I want to try and make a longer level this time)

larafan25
27-06-09, 23:20

oh...so we just submit our work then?

larafan25
28-06-09, 02:17
when the competition starts there will be a thread about it, you will just let whoever created the thread(most likely myraider4life) that you are joinging and then get started after you get the WAD and texture set:)

and submit it before the deadline:)

although last time the deadline was held back a bit because very few people had it finished on time:)

28-06-09, 02:18
^AH I seee...:hug:

MyRaider4Life
28-06-09, 08:18
BTW, can we use my geometry pack?

What do you mean? :confused:
Do you want us to include your Geometry Pack in our wad?
If so then, no. We are only going to add what is actually necessary. Also people, most of the objects will be Natlas Mines objects because The Great Pyramid and the last level really dont have anything that we could make into a static. So there will be nearly everything you see in TRA and everything you see in TR1.

@Romantic Inc: You will have to send me your level once you have completed it.

Also we are going to let the public chose there outfit for there level but there will be one standard in the wad. And we are going to be giving people a tga file with textures from all three games. TR1, TRA, Core's TRAE and TRXtra textures. :D
So I can see people are going to have a lot of fun with all of this and also the challenge might be changed to a 2 room challenge (not including the water rooms, so you can still have water rooms in both room 1 and room 2). ;)

I hope this cleared things up. :D

ggctuk
28-06-09, 16:01

What kind of enemies will we be using? High-res TR1, TRA or the standard TR1 enemies?

Thanks!

I'm going to change the textures on the Scorpion that came in the original TRLE (the big scorpion) to make it look more fleshy and less egyptian. But I can only do it tonight... as I'm going off to the beach during the afternoon :p... you want it? (It probably won't turn out very good: seeing I've been trying out TRLE for 3 years I'm no longer a newb.... I'm a noob)

ggctuk
30-06-09, 12:51
No, I believe we're being provided with a base WAD like the Back to Basics competition, which means the enemies will be provided too. So I was wondering about high-res TR1 enemies, standard TR1 enemies with enhanced textures, TRA eneimes etc.

I really hate the idea of having to use a premade WAD and TGA. It makes the competition too limited. This is the one room competition. The challenge is to make a good level using only two editor rooms. I think adding a set WAD and TGA takes away too much room for creativity in the level. Set theme, set objects, set textures. I feel like this competition is trying too hard to be the next Back to Basics. Please let us use our own textures, objects, animations, and most importantly creativity. I think this competition could be really fun and a lot better than the last One Room Competition, but I know I won't be participating if premade WADs and TGA are supplied and required.

I have a really good idea for a puzzle that would fit well with the Atlantis theme, but it would require me to make a few custom objects. Can't do that if objects are provided. I suppose I could change it around a bit to make it fit in with my current project, though.

Good idea but you also have to think about the people who can't build their own objects and textures but like to build.
Why not do this...
Let people use there own wads and tgas if they want but still send your wads and tgas to the people who dont want to use their own objects.

dizzydoil
02-07-09, 20:33
^ I'd rather stick to one or the other. If people can't make up their own wads & textures (don't really need to make their own objects) - should they really be in the competition? I'm not saying that only people who can find wads & textures should be allowed to join - but it's a basic essential. I agree with Kapu anyway. I have came to my own conclusion on the matter - and I'll have a talk to MyRaider4Life later in the day - if not tomorrow. I think it would be easier and perhaps give a better variety of gameplay and levels :tmb:.

Oh, and I'd love to hear of this puzzle you have your eye on Kapu.

Much on the contrary, haveing these limitations makes it a more interesting competition.

Ture, but that makes two huge limitations, which I think would take away too much from the gameplay.

03-07-09, 12:50
Lets clear things up again shall we. :p

Well I am going to supply people with a wad filled with animating objects, statics and puzzles (And of course the Lara).
These will be standard and people can change the puzzles and add more statics and even change the Lara model, the wad is just there to make it quicker for people. Also the textures will be a variety of Atlantis textures from TRXtra, TRAE (Core), TRA and TR1. :D

If there is anything people are still unsure about then we feel free to PM me personally and then I will explain it on here. :)
