Hi, members of Maplemation! This thread is for You, who has a creative mind and a brain full of ideas to share them! Don’t let your ideas be ideas! Submit your collaboration ideas here and see if anyone can use it! This thread is also for you, those who want to host a collaboration; who are looking for ideas and inspiration submitted by awesome people! We encourage all kinds of creative ideas and will try to keep the thread updated on the first post. However, please keep them creative and piffle-free. ▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄ Read the following Rules and terms before submitting or taking ideas! You who come to submit ideas: 1. If you post your idea here,you must be open to the fact that the collaboration idea can be used by anyone. If you are not willing to let people take your ideas, thenyou shouldn’t be suggesting them publicly. 2. Be creative! We welcome simple to complicated ideas, but please try to keep them creative and refrain from posting your average “smash” collaborations. 3. Give as many details as possible. Present the theme/idea. Does it have a plot? In what environment does it take place? What is special about it? Any management requirement? Etc. Depends on the information you provide, we will put it on the first post of this thread. Ideas that are too vague won’t make it to the first post. 4. No ideas that could trigger drama/flame-war. Collaboration that causes disrespect against specific member, person, or religious belief, etc., will be reported. To expand upon the third rule, feel free to use this optional format in order to organize your ideas: Spoiler: ”Optional Format” Collab name: What is it going to be called? Sprite: What kind of art/sprite is it going to allow? Type: Team Collab: Something you make with a selected group. Forum Collab: Something where all the community can participate Mix: Something that involves the two types above. Time: When does it start? When should it end? General idea: A very brief description of the idea, in some cases two words is enough. Story: Where does it take place? What time/age? What’s the theme? Who are the characters? What is it about? Extended Idea: Use this to explain in detail the important aspects of your collab, what do you exactly want the participants to do? Details: Make a list of important technical details like: How is it going to work, transitions, resources, rules, time management, etc. Music: Resources: Example: Collab name: Base Breakout Collab Sprite: Maple only Type: [FLA] Forum Collab Time: [Jun - Sep] General idea: Obstacle course. Story: Some maplers have been captured by an evil mastermind and what’s worse; they’ve been put inside a tiny cage! In his facilities every room is designed as an obstacle course and each cage inhibits the powers and cripples the weapons of their prisoners, not to mention this base is going to explode in five minutes! Extended idea: There will be a short intro, after this, every participant will be given a custom map with various traps, mechanisms, ropes, acid, lava etc… The character has to break from his cage (which can also be customized by the participant to fit his/her character) and go from point A to point B where said character has to jump on a button to “disable” the next participant’s cage. Details: · Maps will be made in Flash 8 so anyone can use the .fla, this file is going to be 640x360, 30 FPS. · There will be 10 maps, some of which can only be animated once, moreover, if the participant wants to make his/her own map, he/she will receive the resources to do so, while keeping the aforementioned elements. (Cage, traps, obstacles) · These maps are going to be laid out this way: 3 Trap Rooms (TR), 3 Boss Rooms (BR) 4 Obstacle Rooms (Or) and the order for the parts: [OR,TR,BR,OR,TR,BR,OR,TR,BR,OR] · The transition method: After pushing the button, the participants have to animate a “winning pose/dance” for 3 seconds, then in post production the video will be moved out to some direction while the next part pans to the center of the screen. · Participants will not be forced to meet a requirement every week, instead, they will select a week where they know they can focus on their animation and so, the host and the group will help this participant during said week. · Deadline will remain unchanged. If the participant cannot complete his animation before the deadline his/her part will not be shown in the final production. ▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄ You who came to take ideas: 1. If you are planning on taking somebody else's idea then you must inform it HERE and to the person who suggested the idea. That applies even if you are going to make a variant of the original idea.The credit should be shown clearly in the final collaboration. 2. If you affirm that you are planning to host the collaboration, you must state when you are going to do so. If you haven't hosted it yet or haven’t announced a postponement, the idea will be free for others to take. The same rule may apply after 3 months of neglecting the collaboration idea. Be sure to inform people in this thread if your collaboration is still rolling so there won’t be any double hosted collaboration. 3. You are free to host it publicly or privately, but you still need to inform that you are using the idea and need to keep this thread updated with your process. 4. There are ideas that provide a lot of information for you to use and brainstorm in the first post - but you might want to check the comments on this thread as well. You might find awesome inspiration that didn’t make it to the first post. Set your creativity free!
