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!

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 the battle size setting on 150 (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.

It's definitely the closest we've come to seeing a Banerlord cd-key, good initiative and great rewards.

Good luck to all the participants, this time it won't be for lack of time, if math doesn't fail me, 107 days to present projects... from here something great can come out, a lot of encouragement.
Lately I have had little time to play. That is the downside of modding. And once you get behind the scenes (no pun intended) some of the magic disappears. You start contemplating ways to change the game instead of just playing and having fun. Suddenly it is more fun modding than actually playing.

Currently, in native, the castle scene is implemented with a single file. A scene that is created for both sieges (with ladders and siege towers) and "Visitation" ("Take a walk around the streets" option). When sieging a castle that scene is presented and when on "Visitation" the scene props irrelevant to sieges get removed via scripts (ladders, siege towers,...).

(click to show/hide)

With this contest we want the sceners to give it their best in creating a believable siege scene which in most cases creates the scene too different from the one that could be used in "Visitation" by just removing the specific scene props via scripts. Examples: Broken walls, barriers in the courtyard, buildings in flames,... The task of creating that "Visitation" scene will be then left up to the modders by modifying the siege scene if they want to use it in their mods. The scene should feature the whole castle and not just part of the walls though.

Additionally: Creating an interior scene and a prison scene is NOT required.

Hope that clears it up!

I assume so, no one should need to download extra props just for a new map.

Yes, native scene props only.

Keeping the contest submissions on the native module provides the biggest OSP value for the community as the mods can in most cases utilize these scenes while the contrary doesn't hold true. Scenes made for a specific mod can't be used in another without heavy reworks. But yes, we're keeping that option on the table for special contests and perhaps when the modding activity will justify it (after BL release).

Nice to hear that even if OSP would need heavy rework, this is also better than nothing, and it would greatly help a mod, so in a way it also help modding community. Community could vote for the mod they want the contest help (and if the mod team is ok indeed) that could be fun.

 I'm looking at castle pictures to get inspiration, i should not wait too much to start my scene cause i'm very slow ^^

That looks amazing. But as mentioned, only native scene props can be used.
