The Contest Ideas thread seems to have expired. I'm making it to save Kester the trouble.
I'll start with one

Best Eye-Candy Contest-Judged on appearence of eye-candy itself and surrounding landscape

So I got thinking about this last night, and thought everyone has and is familiar with Crusader
IMO the Crusader editor is more limited and while the gameplay has its merits I wouldn't touch the editor with a 10 foot pole.
oh come on, how long do I have to wait to play Seven Saints? been 4 years since you announced it
The good news is that even after several HD-wipes I still have the map and even worked on it a little lately! I'm trying to figure out what to do with the gameplay/scenario. Cause even though I still like the landscape I haven't been able to come up with a satisfying layout for towns etc and the pre-build economy including magically-erased farms and such is giving me some fits. There's still a good chance that it'll get finished and uploaded some time though, especially after the dissapointing SH3.
Anyway, thanks for the (continued) interest and I'm glad to see both of you are still around.

@Sir_Vet, I'd use a contest map by you, unseen.

Atm, it's not decided if it's gonna be an eco competition and next, about which good.
But if not now, I'd opt for setting the Bread task in the first half of 2012. (Could be an interval of short comp now, Fantasy, Bread, mapmaking, eco, etc.)

So looks like a Fantasy competition is a more appreciated idea, then it's more likely to start with that. I think we can move on to decide which of the game will hold the contest?

I still like the idea of a singleplayer challenge though. As Peter said, we'll probably do that in the first months of 2012.

I'm not so sure a single player competition would be a good idea, as I've come to learn over the years that there's many ways to cheat - laddermen population for gold, doppleganging farms, etc.

How would you ensure everyone's playing honestly?

I like the fantasy comp idea. Perhaps a single winner for SH1, SHC, and SH2. Entries judged on both scenario design AND eyecandy. Why not both? The true measure of a well rounded designer.

What does everyone think of this?

A real-life castle and surrounding area is chosen to recreate as faithfully as possible.

The singleplayer competition map is supposed to have events that restrict the player's possibilities, not allowing him to cheat. In addition, he will have to provide us with a save game so we'll check whether the map was modified or not.

Right now, I'm all for the fantasy contest though.
What if we make it for SH1?

Way too restrictive, the goal is to get people to compete not ignore them.
I still say we allow members to use any game they want, provided the judges know the limits of each editor it shouldn't be a conflict at all

Hmm, that could work.
Other opinions?

Hey Yasko good points, I to have some experience building comp maps, with proper scripting and having the player send their save it makes it pretty hard to cheat.

Peter, I will send the map today, I forgot that there's 3 versions so I had to retest before I could send it out.

As far as a real life castle, not for me.

What is actually considered a fantasy map?

Fantasy = imagination, dream, the opposite of reality.

It doesn't have to contain a castle. Everything is up to the mapmaker.

Alright so I think we can get started with the Fantasy competition since everyone likes it.

Description: A fantasy map with everything at the mapmaker's choice (which can be for any game.)

One more thing to decide: How will the winner be chosen?
Nevermind. Everyone will vote

Before that happens, please post here any ideas/suggestions you would have about it:

What game(s) should the competition include
- I think Stronghold 3 and another version of Stronghold game which the peoples want.
What should it be about? Mapmaking, Gameplay skill, Scripting, anything else.
- Map making and Gameplay of Course.
What prize should the winner get? (A custom title is possible)
- Doesnt is needed prizes, but we shall leave the peoples vote.

Im in, because i was speaking with my Sh1 friends in gameranger and they all would like to play a 2 Vs 2 tourney of sh1. I would like to invite the Stronghold Heavens to join us.

The contest that we were talking about is already running and everything has been set up (see the other sticky thread) but it is about mapmaking.
Stronghold Heaven is not going to officially hold a multiplayer contest any time soon. Invites to other contests are welcome though.

Our users are mainly mapmakers and singleplayer gamers. A multiplayer contest is not expected to have a big success.

We might do that later but the next one will be quite different (will probably last less though). More info after we announce the GG I winner.

Has anyone thought about doing an AIV vs AIV competition for Crusader?
