Hello PureZC, this is Shoshon the Elegant, I am here today with the announcement of a new contest, which I call The 29 Contest.

The theme of this contest is the number 29, as that is the age I will be turning in two days. I intended to make this thread at 7:00 PM EST (29 hours before my birthday), but I was watching Supernatural at the time, so now this announcement will be live.

What is this contest?
There is no set theme, but there will be bonus objectives.

You have the option of making a playable submission, be it a dungeon, demo or entire quest.

You may work with any number of partners.


For the time being, this is just an announcement, and you may get ready. More information will be revealed in regards to the bonus objectives, but you will not need to meet any of them.


Contest Begins:
May 14th, 2019
12:00 A.M. EST

MidPoint Objectives:
May 29th, 2019
12:00 P.M. EST

Contest Ends:
June 15th, 2019
6:00 P.M. EST



Bonus Objectives (The overall objectives are each worth a point, while the mid point ones are worth 2.9 points.)

Spoiler




You may start gathering resources and planning now.
You do not need to sign up, but you may express your interest in this contest here.
You may make up to two submissions. If you do make two submissions, each quest can receive an extra bonus point if one accomplishes objective 5 and the other accomplishes objective 6.
Likewise, the same is true for objectives 8 and 9.



I also am looking for one or two judges.

Sounds interesting. I have an exam on the morning of the 15th, but after that I may start to just make a mini-quest. Might force me to complete something. :P

This sounds interesting. Count me in.

I probably have a goofy idea coming, but this should be what I need to get back into ZC.

Very interesting! I may not aim for the bonus objectives at all, but I'll try to whip up an entry for the contest!

That's fine. I'm hoping to get a judge or two, cause I want the bonus points to potentially make a difference, but I don't want it to be a huge swing in anyone's direction. They're more for fun.

What about ZC 2.55 alpha versions? Are those allowed?

 

Why did you post midpoint objectives before the midpoint?

 

This sounds great. I'm busy, but might have just enought time to do something.

Making some slow but steady progress on mine. The idea of making a 29 screen quest lets me set the bar lower than usual and hopefully not destroy myself.

Include exactly 29 scripts in your submission.

How exactly is this challenge counted? Does the Global script count as one script or for each of its functions? Do item scripts count? Or is it just FFC scripts?

Rip. I completely missed this question.

I was doing this by opening up the quest in ZC and looking at the quest info to see which screens have scripts and seeing how many different scripts are used throughout.



How is everyone doing so far? We have just over a week left.

This challenge can't be counted fairly and sensically like that. Sometimes you don't see scripts directly used in the quest. xD

 

Anyway, I too am wondering how people are doing. Personally wish for more time but that's how it always goes.

I'm on it, generally, but I will probably have to rush at the end anyway. Even though I purposely made sure to keep the scope of the project as small as possible while not tiny

I guess nevermind, it would be fair at least.

 

Anyway, 6 days left. :o

Doing progress.
