The Mount & Blade Modding Contest - Q3 2019




Theme: Singleplayer Castle Siege Scenes

Greetings everyone!

We've had some amazing submissions made to the Mount & Blade Modding Contest in all areas: Scening, 3D Art, Scripting and 2D art. All submissions have been afterwards released as OSP for our community members to use within their own projects. You can find all the previous contests in our Hall of Fame.

This time around we're going for something different! With a longer submission period and some very appealing rewards, we're hoping we'll appeal to all the sceners within our community to participate! In addition to all the generous sponsors and our veteran judging committee, we are also hosting Gökçen Karaağaç "Cuce" (Level Designer at TW) as a 4th judge. Let's show him what we can come up with!

The theme of the contest is: Singleplayer Castle Siege Scenes. We're searching for the most creative, bad-ass, believable, fun and beautiful castle siege scenes you guys can come up with! Feel free to let your imagination run wild! Keep in mind that your scenes don't have to be "Visitation" compatible, we will leave that task up to the modders (converting the "Siege" scene to "Visitation"). We understand that this might have a lower OSP value but are very much looking forward to what you guys can create free of chains! The scene should still feature the whole castle, so not just a small section of the walls.

Good luck to all participants and make sure to ask below if there are any uncertainties!

  • You may submit up to three works to the contest.
  • You may submit previously made scenes if they haven't been released as OSP/LSP yet.
  • You are allowed to post screenshots of your work using client-side mods for Native or visual enhancements, but keep in mind that the scenes will be reviewed on a clean copy of Native, and some of your props and settings may not work as intended if you use third-party add-ons during creation.

You are encouraged to post screenshots of your submission as you work on it within this topic!



Evaluation System

The submissions will be rated on a points system, based on their performance in the following categories: Visuals, Gameplay, Innovativeness. Once the submission end date is reached and the submissions are closed, the judges will review the scenes.

Explanation of the categories:

Visuals (40 points)- How well the different scene features fit into each other, the composition of scene props, quality of ground texture and painting work, terrain realism, details and touches.
Gameplay (40 points)- How well the scene plays out in a singleplayer siege scenario with 150 bots (includes evaluation of the AI mesh, entry points, walking distances,...).
Innovativeness (40 points)- The use of new and fresh concepts while designing the look, gameplay, and setting of the scene.

Total points: 40 (Visuals) + 40 (Gameplay) + 40 (Innovativeness) = 120



Judging Committee

The judging committee consists of experienced sceners and veterans within their own field of expertise.

Greetings everyone, I posted this here with Olaf's permission. Lots of talented sceners here so I thought some might be interested. If you have any questions you can post them here, or on the TW thread but all submissions should be posted at the main Taleworlds thread. Quite a long submission period and nice rewards this contest edition so if you have the time consider participating. Looking forward to your submissions!

Pretty cool idea, good luck with the whole thing Marko and glad you got Taleworlds to sponsor the contest.
Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often.
