Introduction
The previous contest didn't get much attention, but the entries where fantastic. That's why we decided to give the contest another chance. We will have such a contest on a regular base, with each time a different theme.

Goal
The goal of the contest is off course to create the best mission using "Design your own mission". Things to keep in mind are originality, playability and difficulty. You should challenge the players of your mission, but they should not get frustrated. If your mission is ready, you should upload it to our mission upload site.

Theme
In this edition the theme is: gunfights. Be creative, but use this specific theme. We are curious about what you make up!

Jury
The jury, consisting for the second edition of PatrickW, (if he wants) tony-resta and myself, will choose a number of missions from all submissions and from those mission everybody can choose the top 3. The mission with they most votes will win the contest. The winner will be part of the jury for the next edition of the contest if he wants.

Schedule
You can submit your mission until Sunday, April 19. All missions will then be reviewed by the jury, which will present the nominated missions within a week. After that everybody can play the nominated missions and name their favourites. This will be possible for a week after the nominees have been made public. After this week the mission with the most votes is declared winner.

Submit
You can submit a mission for the contest by uploading it to the mission download site and post the following information in this topic:
CODE

[b]Mission name:[/b]
[b]Mission description:[/b]
[b]Link to the mission:[/b]

Everybody can submit just one mission, when you submit more than one, only the last one will compete.

Reward
The most important reward for everybody that enters the contest is off course that you can claim to be a GTA mission designer. The author of the winning mission will be invited to become a jury member for the next edition of the contest and you will be in the Wall of Fame!

Finally
Good luck, and, above all, have fun! wink.gif

First time trying this mod, interesting but annoying when you cant shove AI in vehicles - impressive never the less.

Anyway, after a short few hours (and alot of corruption causing me to start from scratch or mid-point) I figured I'd throw my first ever DWOM mission into this competition, since I don't want to risk losing it (took too long to make tounge.gif ).

Anyway:

Mission name: Badlands Gunfight
Mission description: Carl and some friends and relatives are having a nice picnic. Suddenly the weather changes... but that's what always happens when you're on a picnic, so why worry?

Edit: Stupidly uploaded the wrong file first and second times, got the right one up now - I *think* (third time lucky) - serve me right for posting at 1:20am i guess...

Not sure if I'm going to join in with this contest, but I was making a mission with a gunfight in it, so might as well.

Heh, I might join in this one. I do think that April 12th is a bit soon of a deadline, and I don't see the need for the rush. Perhaps an extension to 3/4 of a month being open contest time, and the rest of the month being voting time, much like the Short Story of the Month Contest over at Writers' Discussion?

A main reason of gettin' a crash on the mission is a NUL missing from the file. Always backup.

I have epic idea for this! BUT I have problem, I already posted it in the bug reports but I have feeling that no ones checking that topic so I'll post it here too.
When ever I try to name my mission or write anything at all it just goes like 12345678901234567890 and so on. I can't erase it or type anything. Does anyone know how to fix that?

EDIT: I get those numbers for other people missions too confused.gif

So this means YOUR player has to fight agains people? If (s)he doesn't have to fight against ppl him/herself, I got my mission called "BackToLS - No war Lost" in this.

You can make your own connection. Be creative! Even if the gunfight is only in a cutscene, there is still a connection between the theme and the mission. So you have a lot of possibilities.

Nice idea of using my trick! Thanks you Ragga1, for telling people to do it with Notepad++,a nd thanks Sniputer for telling that people shouldn't remove NUL.

Good, people are doing it properly.

'Played it, it should be improved in MANY ways.

- Too short for a Contest Mission?
- Instead of patrol, army is sleeping at the Angel Pine Junkeyard.
- Once you come, chainsawers appears. Suddenly. They weren't there before.
- The mission DOES NOT FAIL when you kill the chief.
- You can get a Wanted Level.
- Army isn't supposed to drive a Mesa. A Patriot would be pretty better.
- Not that "gunfightning", all you do is to kill some chainsaw mans, that are not hard to kill.

How about like this... We create one mission. but, because there are a limitation(Objective, Car, Pickup, and Actor)
So, we make two part of the mission.. Is this allowed??

Probably not.Most likely only the second part will get judged.

It sucks, but I'm afraid I won't be able to contribute to this contest, since I've got a lot going on and I simply can't find the time to play GTA. Anyhow, I'm looking forward to playing some of the missions that will come out of this. icon14.gif

Probably not.Most likely only the second part will get judged.

On the first contest, both parts of "Get the G" were put.

So I guess you can make multiple parts because of limitations.

If it is only one mission, you can devide it in multiple parts. But when it looks like that it are two missions, only the last one will compete. Get the G was one mission, so it was allowed.
