It's time for Dungeon Building Competition 2.0!
===================================

You've all experienced many of the dungeons in Deepworld. We think they're pretty entertaining, but there could definitely be far more variety. We know you guys are great at building stuff, so we thought we'd have another building competition!

THE WINNERS:

Grand Prize: The Tower (by Philosopher)
Most Epic: Power Plant Disaster (by Sirentist)
Most Creative: Valhalla series (by Clueboe)
Most Functional: Trial by Fire (by Toadlover) and Purifier Dungeon (by Oxidis)
Most Beautiful: Terrapus Annoyus (by Jan)

People’s Choice:
4Slot’s Dungeon (by 4SlotToaster)
Unknown’s Hell Dungeon (by Unknown)
Sunken Cabin (by Sirsloth)

Runners Up:
Lost City (by Jan)
Brain Dungeon (by PaulC)
Copper Dungeon (by Garfoz)
Mercury’s Workshop (by Toadlover)
Winery Warehouse (by Distantstar)
Pitch Manufacturing Plant #1 (by KylerCA)
The Skeleton (by KylerCA)
Good and Evil (by Philosopher)
ConezPwn Arctic Dungeon (by ConezPwnz)
Hell Double Dungeon (by Enforcer2)
Ogmios’ Arctic Dungeon (by Ogmios)
Doomsday Bunker (by Anonymous)
Snowflake Dungeon (by Jan)
Snowman Dungeon (by Sirentist)

===================================




First up, the rewards (note that the crown prizes are not cumulative):
- Participation award: A free Brass Butler Bot (or Diamond Butler Bot if you make 3 or more dungeons)
- Top 20 dungeons: 50 crown prize
- Top 5 dungeons: 200 crown prize
- Top dungeon: 500 crown prize
- Anyone with a dungeon that is chosen for world generation will also get their name etched into the soon-to-be-created Architect's Hall in Deepworld HQ!

*If we get a lot more entries, we reserve the right to add more prizes :)

Now, the rules:
- Dungeons must be built in one of three private worlds (The Factory, Hell Factory, and Ice Factory), which we will add you to if you sign up for the competition
- At least five dungeons from each biome will be chosen, so build hell/arctic-specific dungeons too!
- Dungeons should be a min of 40x40 blocks and a max of 100x100 blocks
- Dungeons should be dangerous (spikes, turrets, etc.), and feature at least one switch and door combination that poses an obstacle to progress
- As we don't have Butler Bot available for moving liquid yet, please place adobe backdrop where you'd like lava/acid to go.

Notes:
- Use the existing dungeons for inspiration, but be creative!
- We will have industrial items (cranes, etc.) in the crafting menu this weekend
- We particularly like dungeons that have a "theme". e.g., terrapus harvesting facilities, acid barreling facilities, etc.
- No need to protect your dungeons, but do mark them with signs/plaques with your name (and any backstory if you like)
- If you want to mark where brains should spawn, mark the spots with Tinmen. Loot, place chests.
- DO NOT GRIEF ANYONE ELSE'S DUNGEON. We can tell who did it, and you will be penalized severely. Do not test us.
- You can have your items back once we're all done - we will snapshot the world.


Footnote:
===================================
Our last competition was never finalized! We wanted to congratulate @cborgen for the coolest dungeon, and thank all the other participants, which I think included @stocko, @demure, and @jan, who will get their crowns shortly :)

    I think @toadlover and I will be entering! Not sure yet which world we'll be building in.

    EDIT: We ARE allowed to work in teams, right?

    Sounds like fun. I guess I will take a break from Persephone's garden for this and let the grass grow.

    Also, I didn't see a final due date. When is the building part done?
  • HoboDumpsterHoboDumpster Posts: 925Member
    Someone should collect a ton of terrapus eggs and make an aliens themed dungeon
  • mikelaurencemikelaurence New York CityPosts: 5,365Member, Administrator
    Teams are allowed, you will split any prizes you win.

    Due date: Ideally in one week, we'll see how many dungeons people build :)
  • DaMorlockDaMorlock Posts: 3,641Member, Arbiter
    @toadlover are we working together again?

    @andrewwang sure, I'd like to make 3 for the diamond bot, but I'd like to make one solo, and maybe a guild made one. The third can be a project made by just us.

    Quick question, are these private worlds that we need to be invited to, or are the worlds just not made yet?

    I can't seem to find them.
  • mikelaurencemikelaurence New York CityPosts: 5,365Member, Administrator

    Oh crap, I thought The Factory private world is non-premium. Now I can't participate :(( =))

    Ah, I'll flip it.

    I've been so busy messing with the tutorial I didn't get here fast enough ...

    I'd like to build things to hurt and frustrate people, too! Am I too late?

    I would like to participate.

    I will definitely try to enter some of my own dungeon designs. Time to put all of my reinforced iron and spikes to use. I might even place some of my terrapus eggs somewhere (for the terrapus harvesting facility theme). If the eggs hatch, just treat the egg shards as terrapus eggs.

    My Entries:

    Key:
    Plug = small protector
    Bird statue = big protector
    Red (anita) mushroom = terrapus egg
    2 stacked big chests = dungeon objective (purifier component/pandora's box)
    Loot can also be allocated to any of the crates/boxes
    Purifier dungeon:
    - the Factory 177west, 155down
    - around 58m wide, 33m high
    - Medium, but compact
    - Work in progress
    Terrapus factory:
    - the Factory 264 west, 111 down
    - around 54m wide, 42m high
    - currently in spotless condition, weathering can be added later.
    - Basically finished
    Cave
    - the Factory 334 west, 114 down
    - around 47m wide, 50m high
    - Mostly stone
    - currently in spotless condition, weathering can be added later.
    - Chest of plenty dungeon- gauntlet style
    - All protectors (plugs) must be indestructible and large
    - The door at the end (exit) is supposed to be a one-way door, but the dirt underneath currently serve that purpose.
    - Basically finished


    Note that most temperate world dungeons can have hell/arctic equivalents.

    One bit of information that would be useful is the exact radii of the two different red protectors.
  • mikelaurencemikelaurence New York CityPosts: 5,365Member, Administrator
    Use the tinman as the brain spawn / enemy protector location.

    Enemy protector radii are 15 (same as small dish) / 22 (in between small & large).

    I'd love to enter!
  • KillerofsheepKillerofsheep Posts: 397Member
    I seem to be having trouble placing spikes up side down, any tips?
  • DaleDale Posts: 313Member
    Yes I'm very ken to leave a frustrating mark of dungeon frustration for noob raiders with my nasty dungeon designing skills. Sign me in. Also @mike can we make sky dungeons? Like floating castles?
  • mikelaurencemikelaurence New York CityPosts: 5,365Member, Administrator
    Sky dungeons are cool. Just be sure to line any earth on the bottom with adobe or something so earthquakes don't vaporize it...
