Halloween Speedbuild 2 Winners


Recommended Posts

Halloween Speedbuild 2 Contest 2014 Winners:




1st place: Briarwood Cathedral (author buck28) 76.44%


2nd place: Exhumed (authors Airship Ballet and Kyyrma) 75.80%







Total Points = (gameplay * 3) + (Appearance * 2) + (Story * 1)

Max Possible = Total Votes * 5 (Outstanding)

Category Score (%) = Category Points /Max Possible * 100

Total Score (%) = Total Points /Total Max Possible * 100




The vote count was equal in all categories for everyone so:


TotalMaxPointsPoss (TMP) = AllCategoryVotecount(ACV) * 30


Full Weighted Score (FWS) = (Gamescore*3 + Visualscore*2 + Storyscore) / TMP






8x3 + 15x4 + 6x5 x3 = 342


24 + 60 + 30




10x3 + 16x4 + 3x5 x2 = 218


30 + 64 + 15




11x3 + 18x4 x1


33 + 72 = 105


TMP = 870

Total = 665










7x3 + 18x4 + 2x5 x3 = 309


21 + 72 + 10




11x3 + 14x4 + 2x5 x2 = 198


33 + 56 + 10




8x3 + 12x4 + 7x5 x1


24 + 48 + 35 = 107


TMP = 810

Total = 614







No offense buck28 but this result was a bit of a surprise with your mission up against the combined efforts of Airship Ballet

and Kyyrma. That said the real deciding factor were the 6 top votes for gameplay in Briarwood vs only 2 in Exhumed.


It'll be interesting to watch the votes after the contest and see how these fair over the years. Right now the sample data is so

low this might as well be a tie (but that could also be said of most of our contests, I guess).

HOLY COW! or should I say Burrick. I've never won anything in my life and I am really surprised. Thank you all who played and voted. I really appreciate it, and am honored. It was many hours, but worth every minute.

Just to be able to put contest "Winner" as a designation, is awesome.:)

I am very grateful and glad most everyone enjoyed it. You are welcome, and now I am fired up for a new and hopefully more improved mission :excl:

Congratulations to buck28 for a winning entry rich in exploration and mysteries, and to Airship Ballet and Kyyrma for a horrific little gem! The community also wins two good missions! (...and hopefully a few more ones later on...)

Come the time of peril, did the ground gape, and did the dead rest unquiet 'gainst us. Our bands of iron and hammers of stone prevailed not, and some did doubt the Builder's plan. But the seals held strong, and the few did triumph, and the doubters were lain into the foundations of the new sanctum. -- Collected letters of the Smith-in-Exile, Civitas Approved

This may happen sooner than you think ;)


Also congratulations to all contestants for their awesome FMs!

      Does TDM 2.12 add "30" to the list of FPS caps? I accidentally changed mine and had to look up a console command to set it back to 30.

      Going from DarkRadiant to Trenchbroom feels like going back to the stone age. It's great at geometry (prevents invalid brushes and vertex drifting like no other), but... that's is all. It's terribly underdeveloped. So far behind on so many things...
      Unfortunately it seems to be the only option for my Godot projects, as editors like DR and Hammer are too tied to the engines/games they were made for. (Hammer probably even has a license wall or something, anyway.)
      Sorry, just needed to let this out somewhere.

      Any Thief-Fan who also enjoys Soulslikes should give Lies of P a shot. The art direction is sooo incredible! Love it!

      Server definitely still has some issues. I think I've narrowed down where the issue is, so I'll take a proper look after work.
