A loooong time ago, some buddies and I made this: The one second massacre.

 

For anyone interested, I think it would be cool to do a 1 screen massacre here with you guys. You basically make a screen within a day, enemies and all, then pass the quest to another person, who has a day to add a screen, enemies and all, who passes it to the next person...

 

We did this with music of course, each person getting a second, and you can hear the result.

 

I think it would be cool, and I'd play it.

In fact, here's my first screen. Reply to the thread with intent to modify, then edit the post with the new version!

 

I hope this catches on...

 

Guidelines:

 

- There should be an agreement that the quest be playable (no difficulty ramps between screens, no insta death, no dead ends).

  • Screen designers can change the adjacent two rows/columns of combos on adjacent screens to open/close paths between them. Within reason of course. This way an overabundance of linear or open screens won't hurt the flow of the quest.
  • Caves/Item cellars don't count as new screens.
  • New screen posts should have a ZQuest screenshot embedded in addition to a download link, so people can keep track of progress without downloading the quest each time.
  • Scripts should be allowed, as long as they're non-global (with the exception of items) and included in the buffer.
  • If you're placing down an item, be sure to check Tools->Quest Reports->Item Locations to be sure it isn't already in the quest.

I express my interest in participating. One thing I need to know is the exact version of Zelda Classic that you used.

You want a massacre huh? I'll put in a room if it's a room directly before the room Moosh puts in and directly after the room James24 puts in. ..I'll give you a massacre. :evillaugh: :P


[edit] Joking aside, this is actually a pretty interesting idea. It might be fun to play a single dungeon made by 40 people just for the WTF is happening with this quest factor! :)

Hm, I overlooked this. Sounds interesting. Can we add multiple screens as long as there is someone else inbetween?

I used the version on my mac (2.5 build 28), but I can switch to anything really.

I really like this idea. In fact, I guess I'll jump right in.

Also some suggestions for additional rules, if peteandwally is okay with it of course:

  • Screen designers can change the adjacent two rows/columns of combos on adjacent screens to open/close paths between them. Within reason of course. This way an overabundance of linear or open screens won't hurt the flow of the quest.
  • Caves/Item cellars don't count as new screens.
  • New screen posts should have a ZQuest screenshot embedded in addition to a download link, so people can keep track of progress without downloading the quest each time.
  • Scripts should be allowed, as long as they're non-global (with the exception of items) and included in the buffer.
  • If you're placing down an item, be sure to check Tools->Quest Reports->Item Locations to be sure it isn't already in the quest.

All good suggestions.

I'm not a big fan of this one. Besides the fact you'd be altering someone else's contribution without their consent, I think having "clunky" flow is part of the charm of a collaborative project. Obviously the goal of this project is to have fun making a group quest rather than making the best quest possible.
 

  • Scripts should be allowed, as long as they're non-global (with the exception of items) and included in the buffer.

I don't like this one either since it creates too much disparity. People that can't script might feel they have little to offer the project because they can't match what other people have done with their screens, and so don't get involved. But I have far less objection to this rule than the former one.

 

I'd be happy to jump on board, though I only have 2.5 build 24 and 29.

@peteandwally: If the first screen is gonna be dungeon 1, are we gonna start Link with a weapon or hide the dangerous to go alone screen somewhere in the overworld?

I suppose I can see your point, but I think it's at least important in dungeons that we can modify door sets to add/remove connections to rooms. Seeing as dungeon design will be more complex and we could potentially design ourselves into an unwinnable key order situation.

That's kinda why I specified FFC scripts over global ones. They tend to be more modular and accessible to newer members, so once something gets added to the quest, anyone can use it or not use it as they see fit. I guess I should have also suggested that when applicable, new scripts should come with setup instructions.

Ah ok. I can see dungeon design being an exception for that reason, but not overworld stuff.

This seems like a pretty neat idea. I'll probably hop in whenever and make something lol.

 

Also potential dumb question, but if you guys are working on the dungeon, would it be fine for me to come in and make a random overworld screen instead of continuing the dungeon? I assume that would be fine, but just checking.

@Moosh I should have named that dungeon something else besides dungeon 1. I think whoever makes the 'it's dangerous' screen should place the continue point at the screen there. I only placed it on the first screen to test playability.

@Eddy Make a screen anywhere you want, connected or not to what has been done, just make a screen!

 

Who's next?
