Autumn 2020 OLDC Results & Future Contest Changes

SeventhSentinel - January 9, 2021

Hello everybody! The Autumn 2020 OLDC has come and gone. Before I congratulate the winners, I would like to go over some changes we will be making for future contests.

The biggest change is that future contests will be twice per year instead of four times per year. We recognize that creating maps is harder and takes longer than it did when the OLDC was first created. We hope that giving mappers six months instead of three months to work on maps will result in more maps submitted to each contest, and that the maps are as high quality as the mappers can manage.

In addition, we will now require participants to include their Discord tag in their map submission posts (that is, your username — NOT a nickname — and the four numbers after it). This way, we can add participants to a special channel on the SRB2 Official Discord Server dedicated to answering their questions about the contest. This channel can also be used to keep contest staff up to date on fixes to your maps after the submission deadline has passed. We hope this will be easier than sending direct messages to contest staff regarding such topics, since individual staff members are not always online and/or available to help. (You may skip this if you do not have a Discord account, however.)

Now, on to the results of the Autumn 2020 contest!

The winners of the single player division are Kwiin and Kanna with their entry, Foliage Furnace Zone. The map’s theme appears to be borrowed from another fangame called Sonic: After the Sequel. I found this map somewhat challenging. Watch out for death pits and fast-moving platforms! It uses slopes in ways that feel very much at home in a Sonic game, and its texture work is good. Congratulations, Kwiin and Kanna!
