An idea for some future short competition, inspired by this screenshot by Shade:

http://angband.oook.cz/screen-show.php?id=1473

Let somebody submit a savefile with an absolutely too deadly vault and let's grade by score (the assumption is it'll measure how much of the vault is explored) or the number of artifacts seen. Two rules: no teleport other in any form and the game ends as soon as the level is left in any way. Or perhaps allow teleport other if the character has a lot of charges so that no scumming for teleport other outside the vault will be needed (would reward boring play).

Is there going to be an archive of all the competitions? I would assume that people would still want to comment on competition dumps even after the end of the competitions. So ideally, you'd need a ladder for each competition. I don't know if pav decided what the layout is yet but it's something to consider. I wouldn't be opposed to a couple competitions at the same time.

@bandobras, I suggested something similar earlier in this thread. I don't know if there would be any interest in eg. the normal competitions running at 2 months each, and a mini comp at for the last two weeks? But that would probably take a lot more work to organize. I dunno.

Though moving the competition to oook seems to have certainly increased its popularity!

I don't have anything particular to say about the variant, cLevel, or whatever for the next comp, but I would like to request

(1) disconnected stairs

(2) a savefile where the ancestors have developed decent monster memory and everseen flavors/books/dragonscale etc
(3) the option to show flavors in descriptions of aware items turned off

If you plan to submit a comp, please at least consider these points.

Sounds good to me. Regarding (3), you can certainly do that in FA and O - I use it to help prevent the long description lines getting truncated on my small PDA screen.

Maybe we should do a ToME comp to welcome our long lost brethren. I'm sure somebody could think up something weird.

Then again, it's not like ToME needs any more exposure on the ladder ;)

Nick December 12, 2008 07:22

Since competition 61 seems to have come to a natural end, I have moved the finish date forward to the 19th of December.

This is a call for savefiles for competition 62 - any that are unused will be kept for future comps.
