I'm sorry, what happened to this rule (from the main contest topic)?

Quote
- Update phase deadline will extend such that it's 72 hours from the time of the last update, with no limits on how much it may extend.

As I've mentioned in chat, I'm on a training course at the moment, and today was the only day I could work on my level. If I'm not allowed to update (which would be unfair, when the rules say the deadline should be extended) then I'll have to ask for my level to be withdrawn.

Totally missed that rule, but I think for the next contest I will simplify this and remove it, so only a static deadline is there. We've already got enough extension rules which make the overall pogress unnessesarily complicated.
I'll unlock the update topic again and extend the deadline once more until Saturday 28th and make this the final date!

Well it took me long enough but I finally solved all the contest levels :) I have attached my replies below for completion, but none of them are backroutes so don't worry.

Additional comment: I have included both intended solutions to IchoTolot's "Mount Lemmerest", but I still haven't figured out the second solution to nin10doadict's "Power Core". Will post again when I do.



nin10doadict's "Frozen factory" (click to show/hide)

Raymanni's "Cataclysm" (click to show/hide)




IchoTolot's "Mount Lemmerest" (click to show/hide)

bsmith's "Colorful August" (click to show/hide)




mobius's "Temple of Doom" (click to show/hide)

Yep just as I predicted: I over-complicated the heck out of it :evil:. Sorry about that. I went back and I believe I found the true intended way of getting through the terrain. The replay is attached below.

Yep, that is totally intentional. Nicely done! :D

Ok, if nobody speaks against it now, updates have closed and until the end of the month you still have time to solve the levels. After that voting will start. :)

For the voting:

We've got 7 R1 levels, 5 R3 levels and only 2 R2 levels.

The normal procedure is to cut every rule down to 2 levels before merging the levels for the final vote rounds.
But as we've got only 2 R2 levels and 7 R1 levels, I wonder if it's better to cut the R2 down to 1 levels and the R1 only to 3 levels, as otherwise R2 would atomatically qualify under the top 6.

I want to have some opinions here:

Proceed as usual: Cut every rule down to 2 levels before merging the levels for the final vote rounds.
Alter the process: Cut the R2 down to 1 levels and the R1 only to 3 levels.

What would you prefer? :)

I also say option #2 where we cut down R2 to 1 level and R1 to 3 levels. That would create a better balance.

I mentioned that I was going to do a stream on the contest levels today, but I have something that came up, so I won't be able to do the stream after all. I'm sorry for announcing this last-minute, but I hope I can stream them after the contest is over!

Have level designer's block right now? Have some of my incomplete levels for LOTS of ideas! All levels are now sorted by their graphic sets! Last updated on October 13, 2017.
