Code bounty: gamemodes!

Unread postby Naksu » Tue Jul 31, 2018 10:03 pm #430307

We haven't had any new gamemodes recently, let's see if this will spark anyone's interest in that direction:

I'm willing to pay a bounty of 100 USD per gamemode, until 3 bounties have been claimed. Two of the headmins have also preliminarily approved a wizard token for each dev of a gamemode that is accepted, but whether that actually happens and what conditions apply is not in my hands so that should be considered a potential bonus and not something guaranteed.

To claim the bounty, a mode must:
  • Preferably be a more "serious" type of design rather than mime-revs or whatever
  • Meet a minimum standard of originality or innovation and not be a palette-swap or a minor retinkering of an existing mode. Ports and re-implementations of modes from other codebases should be avoided but I'm not ruling them out just yet, talk to me first.
  • Be accepted by the repo
  • Be accepted by the server admins by being enabled in config
  • Be accepted by the community enough that it won't be immediately obvious that it will be disabled in a week

As far as I'm concerned, you are allowed to recycle assets and concepts of previous modes, but you should probably talk to me first before potentially wasting your time.

Contact me on discord (Naksu#9865) or #coderbus on IRC if you've worked on or want to start working on something that you'd like to claim a bounty on when you're done.

I would if I had any creativity or if every suggested gamemode on here wasn't just a conversion/cult gamemode.

The tokens are guaranteed until the end of the term in which case the new headmins will have to repeat the guarantee.
So uhh, I'm an admin. Please leave feedback!
