Go to2016-08-08Mappool changes Hey ladderers!

The mappool changes that Vivando, Ragnarok, Laro and I have decided on are:

- Galactic Warfare, Distopia and Jungle's Edge have been removed for the duration of the next season as they were the most played maps.

- Wicked Wood and Epitome return, as they were only removed for the duration of the last season.

- Zaitox (too slow, which breaks the balance in ladder matches), Security Breach v2 (campy and rarely picked) and Waterfall Caves (broken and unpopular) have been removed from the mappool

- Triglet and Dusk have had minor updates

- The Astrolabe, Hall of the Mountain King, Nightwalker and Scrapyard have been added

In addition, we would like to ask you to fill in these polls to determine whether This Level Is Untitled, Minimal Duel, Los Pollos Hermanos and Ancient Museum should be added:
-Poll: This Level Is Untitled
-Poll: Minimal Duel
-Poll: Los Pollos Hermanos
-Poll: Ancient Museum

We will be closing the polls and most likely launching the next season on Friday!

May as well ask here:

I designed Sacrosanct as essentially the definite anti-mappool level. However I've since heard from some people that with some changes, it would be a fairly playable level, and I've been itching to do a v2 for a long time (I did the majority of the level a few hours before the deadline, and it shows).

What does everybody think? What else should I change?

Go to2013-09-07Searching judges On second thought I'm not really up for the task myself, so I will try outsourcing the entire job!

FireSword, cooba and FawFul, please agree on 3 maps to add to the mappool (if you rank them internally doesn't really matter to me, but I suppose it could be a nice thing for competition-minded level makers). If you for some reason can't work out the last details by consensus, feel free to involve me. If you need players for test-runs I'll try my best to be avaialble.

Here are the criteria that should be kept in mind.

Thanks!

Go to2013-09-06Searching judges I'll help judge if you'd like. I checked out all the entries on J2O and started forming an opinion on most. Two of the entries, the ones I played a little, I have reviewed already.

To say that I have a good eye for tactics, though? That might be a stretch.

edit: *searching for judges
Go to2013-09-06Searching judges I could use some help judging the level contest entries. Please post here if you're interested.

Criteria:
* Naturally, you can't be a judge if you have submitted an entry.
* You should be either an experienced level maker or an experienced player with a good eye for tactics, but preferably both.

Thanks!

A little piece of advice for you, though: please stay out of threads you can't understand, okay? No need to trouble your pretty little head with advanced discussions.

For everyone else: The contest has been announced on J2o and JCF as well. Unless you'd like to discuss cooba's other point (I also think the deadline could be a bit longer) or other matters related to the contest, please don't bother posting in this thread anymore.
Go to2013-08-11JJNet presents: The JJNet Season 8 CTF Level Making Contest! Hi gejole. You alright? Yeah, me too. Im off, take care xox
Go to2013-08-11JJNet presents: The JJNet Season 8 CTF Level Making Contest! Yeah, this should definitely had been put on the main level making site. We wanted to put it on Rabbit Journal but we never decided who should do it and then I guess we kind of forgot...


(hi moti emo)
Go to2013-08-11JJNet presents: The JJNet Season 8 CTF Level Making Contest! I think lithium needs a wank
Go to2013-08-10JJNet presents: The JJNet Season 8 CTF Level Making Contest! All I'm implying is that the deadline is ridiculous, and not promoting the contest on the main community hub (this probably wouldn't have ever happened had I not complained) only makes it even shorter for those who don't frequent jjnet. Unless there was some miracle that I don't know of, none of the good levels currently in the mappool took as short as two weeks to make.

Judging from the two (currently) links to jj.net on the J2O frontpage, no, there's no boycott and there wasn't one.

(Lith, just saying, but I was pretty much the one who pushed Starlit into popularity, tyvm)
Go to2013-08-10JJNet presents: The JJNet Season 8 CTF Level Making Contest! It is grytolle and jj.net announcing the competition, so of course they'd do it on their own site first...

Also you're implying that the only one who can make 'quality entries' are on j2o/JCF and never view this site? While it's true that a lot of famous levelmakers hang around there, that doesn't mean that everything not done by those automatically sucks...

cooba wrote:
This is such inane, and borderline offensive bollocks...

The only bollocks I've read here is you implying that we boycot j2o. We had newsposts for most of your contests, including the latest splashscreen one. Also, the mappool here links the the levelmakers respective upload on j2o. Wasn't j2o boycotting us, because of some illegal download link for jj2? bollocks, indeed.
Go to2013-08-10JJNet presents: The JJNet Season 8 CTF Level Making Contest! Because Plumbe, Sean, Loon, etc make levels of the same quality as lava.j2l, and implying that is totally not offensive either? emo

Basing this contest on jj.net is not an evil conspiracy against J2o and JCF. The admins should correct me if I'm wrong, but I can think of the following reasons:

1) it's a clan ladder mappool contest, so it's perfectly logical to have it on the clan ladder site first (as far as I know the admins have also posted it on JCF by now as well)

2) jj.net IS frequently visited by active players and the levelmakers among them, so announcing the contest here ensures that active players get informed of it quite early

3) while most of the people from JCF do visit jj.net, people from jj.net rarely drop by JCF (see 2), therefore the J2o/JCF-based levelmakers would be informed of it anyway while the active player levelmakers from jj.net wouldn't (and I'd say they're very important for this contest)

4) the purpose of the contest is to add something new to the mappool, not just fill it up with three more levels made by people who already have a few in the existing mappool. That doesn't mean the crew wouldn't want experienced J2o/JCF-based levelmakers to compete or that the crew thinks their levels are bad, but a chance should be given to people who visit jj.net and play the game as well to get their new levels in

This is such inane, and borderline offensive bollocks. lava.j2l is not more likely to suit the "play styles of the active laddering community" than anything that can be done by J2O regulars. Apparently boycotting J2O is a trend now, though, let's see how it works out once we disable the Pictures section.
Go to2013-08-10JJNet presents: The JJNet Season 8 CTF Level Making Contest! I have to agree with cooba partially, you could've announced this contest like before the 1st t3 vs Cx CW.
I personally was already working on something, so in my case the deadline in 2 weeks won't affect the quality.
I hope ppl won't make sth in a rush though, because after all, we have to play ladder matches in these lvls.
Go to2013-08-10JJNet presents: The JJNet Season 8 CTF Level Making Contest! People who frequent jj.net are also the ones who actually play the game, so the levels they submit are more likely to suit the play styles of the active laddering community, no? I guess that's why the crew chose jj.net as the place to announce it. Not that the old and experienced levelmakers who are sadly inactive shouldn't give it a try, but a contest like this also gives a chance to newer levelmakers who still play actively.
Go to2013-08-10JJNet presents: The JJNet Season 8 CTF Level Making Contest! I just wanna go on record and say:

1. without posting this on J2O and JCF, and
2. with a 2 weeks deadline

You can't possibly expect any quality entries.

Go to2013-08-08JJNet presents: The JJNet Season 8 CTF Level Making Contest! JJNet ladder season 8 is approaching and with it come as always changes to the mappool. This time, however, we are holding a contest where brand new levels can make it into the mappool. The best three maps (supposing there are three that meet our quality-standards) as selected by the admins will be added to the mappool on a temporary basis for the next season. As the season progresses, when a clan reaches 50 points, a vote will be held to determine whether those maps are to be kept in or removed from the mappool.

What are we looking for? Mostly the same things as in most level making contests.

These are the rules :
-We are looking for CTF levels (a contest for the multi-ladder might well be held at another time)
-The level must be playable in 1.23. (If you are going to convert the level from 1.24 afterwards, make sure you pick a tileset that works in 1.23 too.)
-Only new levels will be accepted. Edits of existing levels will not. If a level was started/finished before this contest began, it can however be entered if it was never officially published before.
-Only one entry per person. Collaborations are allowed, but they will count as a whole entry for each collaborator. This is meant to encourage people to focus all their effort on one level, rather than rush many. Quality over quantity.
-As long as the contest stays open, you are allowed to edit/fix/remake your entry as much as you want even after you have submitted it.
-Upload your level to Jazz2Online once you are finished, in order to make it easily available to everyone. Prefix the upload name with [JJnetS8].

Aside from the rules, there are some additional guidelines (if you don’t follow them you’re not likely to get very far):
-The level should be playable in both 2on2 and 3on3.
-The level should have at least decent eyecandy as usual. Most importantly there should be no distracting visual decorations.
-The level should be balanced. You do not need to make the level 100% symmetrical, but try to keep no team significantly advantaged over the other.
-All characters should be playable in the level (Lori too.) Flow differences between characters do not matter, but all characters should be able to reach all objects at least without needing to use tricks like walljumps.
-Try to make the level spacious enough so that there is room for players to dodge bullets for example, but still not too open, as that will increase "lag-dependency", e.g. lots of long linear paths where players usually get "airhit" from afar (especially if the level contains a lot of seekers, thus avoid the use of Seeker Powerup.)
-For the same reason, add some slightly safer areas so that people have somewhere to hide for a second after they get airhits. However, don't let the level become a campfest. Try to design base areas with thought.
-Originality is a nice bonus, but we are not looking for full gimmick-levels. Use of AngelScript is allowed, but again, try to not draw the gameplay too far from classic CTF.

You have exactly two weeks starting now on to finish and upload your entry. The contest will close on August 22.

Ok, i still am not expecting to play this season since i dont have jj2 and am not on a team. I havent tried the new plus, either. But i am a proponent of fireball default, pepper allowed. If only based on the idea that fireball is like jj1 toaster, which gets priority over blaster because the sprite has more pixels of height. I could be wrong, tho.

PS. Still waiting for more opinions on this:

Go to2013-02-01Fireball So we'll use moti as a default weapon then?

All the feedback considered, I was going to ask you (since this is probably the best place to ask, right now) all: "How does everyone feel about upgrading the powered up fireball's speed and range?" But that may be a bit of a double edged sword, with Distopia and AYB benefitting from this change and WW (potentially) suffering from it.

Therefore, have another question: How does everyone feel about a setting where the Fireball PU would only act as a 50 ammo box?

Opinions only please, no passive-aggressive horseshit like in the few posts above.


I wouldn't mind either, though I'd prefer if the powered up fireball dealt 2 damage. It's all a matter of adapting to the changes; as Ragnarok said, it would show the value of "good" players, because it also takes skill to adapt to changes.
Go to2013-02-01Fireball I would prefer the upgraded fireball to have the same physics as normal ones, except 2dmg as it is now, of course.
Go to2013-02-01Fireball @Cooba: Before the update the fireball couldnt be used either.
Since I used the laser shield 10 years ago in multiplayer, Im sure that its possible.

Go to2013-02-01Fireball Can't wait for new plus. I hope they will make 2 more characters, one will have copter ears, double jump, side kick and upper cut, and another one will have all that plus some faster movement but slower falling - to keep everything balanced. Then you could try to change colors of notification text, make new gun what replaces TNT PU, and then after all, make invisible C, hidden somewhere in levels, visible only in JCS, so you have to learn a level by using JCS. Maybe changing shortcuts for ammo from numbers to letters.

(Already said, coders good job. I told this to ones who want fireball instead of pepper in future.)
Go to2013-02-01Fireball The laser shield cannot be used in MP, so that's a bad hyperbole
Go to2013-02-01Fireball Maybe we should allow laser shield too...
Go to2013-02-01Fireball yes

Go to2013-01-31Fireball so far most change of this "fireball gun" would be definietly in disto and ww, for adding another powerup. Personally i find fireball gun to be much more useful than pepper. I mean lets be honest, when someone asks "how many pu's are there in disto" 90% of people would say "2". i dont think it will be sucha drastic change (eventho it is a big change) since its not really that powerfull ammo (i was actually smart enough to notice its limited blaster). What i didnt notice,untill rag told me ofc, is that non pu shoots faster than pu. Well anywaysi dont think its a bad idea, as toni claims it to be, its not that powerfull powerup, it just can provide newcomers a little more chance of winning due to their random placements. In ayb its a bit unlikely that you will go up:
1. getting seek pu is a wiser decision in most cases(even tho,unless you time it, you're unlikely to get seeks either.. especially in 3 vs 3)
2. In a small map like ayb, you're bound to be forced to get r once you spawned
3. you can get seekers while going r since the bottom path is the shortest one
4. Even if you decide to go up, there will be (very likely) someone at the top spamming ammo at the slow spawning C and will randomly take RF (happens very often)

i speak from 2 vs 2 and (mostly) 3 vs 3 expirience, i have no idea how duels work there.
Not to mention ayb is slowly becoming completely "unplayed"

As for ww well, with 3 strong powerups like seeks bnc and toast (each plays a very important role in certain areas) its highly unlikely for it to make a big difference especially since its like having a limited "blaster pu". I'd use this powerup when going r, its a nice way to pwn players being S if you're na, or if w8ting for other powerups. I dont see any other use of it atm, but i havent even yet had a chance to properly play with it.

in disto i do kinda agree il miss pepper a bit since i always picked more pepper than RF, becuz theyr placed exactly in the running paths so its a nice way to pwn ppl while chasing at the top. Still adding a 3rd pu there could prove very usefull.

Finally, this is all spoken in theory,as i've said, i havent yet put any of this into practise. I guess a few games have to be played first before saying anything for certain. But i do know this. Pepper was barely used, and in most lvls some consider it a nuisance becuz when you pick it up it changes to it and it messes up your hunting (i think there's a program that disables ammo changing?i remmber dz sending it once to me but didnt work properly or something..) i saw a lot of people complain about it "fucking gun8" (mostly saw in JE)
