Introduction: It's been a while since I've hosted a contest, and it's been a while since the last spell contest was hosted; so this contest marks both the return of my contests, and the return of spell contests. Remember that even if you don't think you have a chance of winning, I'll be reviewing every spell in a lot of detail, so you'll most certainly learn something in regards to coding! The Theme: Inspired by the members of this forum, the theme for this contest is Physical Abilities. Basically anything that doesn't involve common magic (fire, lightning, nature, etc) is allowed. Slashing spells, slams, punches, shields, bleeding, throwing weapons, and jumping are all fine. Use your imagination. Weapons are allowed if they require some sort of physical strength to use (such as swords, bows, etc). How to Join: Simply post your submission in the Submissions Thread. Remember you can edit your submission any number of times before the due date. The Rules: Your spell must be created solely for this contest. Imports are allowed (a change from last time). All systems and snippets are allowed (a change from last time). Your spell must be actively cast (no auras, passives or autocasts). The spell must be triggered. Using just the Object Editor is disallowed. GUI, JASS, vJASS and ZINC are allowed. All spells must be able to be opened in Newgen without any extra mods. No hybrid code. No converted GUI. Pseudo locals are allowed. The submitted map must be a demo map for the spell. Don't submit spellpacks or ORPGs with the submission in them. One submission per member; One member per submission. The Grading: The grading will be done solely by me, using the following criteria. Note that each category includes, but isn't limited to the bullet-points underneath it. Code - 20 Points Is it MUI or MPI? Does it leak? Can it be easily configured? (Damage, effect, etc) Is it efficient? Eye-Candy - 20 Points Does it look good? Are there enough effects? Do the effects not melt my eyeballs? (Is it overdone?) Are the effects appropriate, or are random effects just played randomly? Theme - 10 Points Does the spell go well with the theme? If so, how well? Other - 10 Points Does it amaze me when I use it? Is it original? Total: - 60 Points The Rewards: Reputation will be rewarded to the top three placed contestants. 35 rep 25 rep 15 rep Due Date: Friday 18th March Midnight (GMT) If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
