Announcing the High Fidelity Mini-Golf Challenge!

Par-take in our first High Fidelity mini-golf course tee-off, the amazing contest where world builders, artists, scripters, designers and other alchemists of imagination compete to design the most compelling and imaginative hole for a miniature golf course.

How It Works

Starting with the base mini-golf tiling pieces we provide, compete to build a single, self-standing section (“hole”) of a miniature golf course using your original art and design. The hole should stand alone, meaning it will need to be placed in a zone with its own skybox and be surrounded by original artwork that you provide. Players will be able to enjoy and experience the creation using the scripted mini-golf putter from our Marketplace. The content should be hosted entirely on the High Fidelity marketplace back-end (although you can opt to keep it private).

Rules

  • Create original mini-golf section with your own assets, except basic tile and teleport point pieces provided by High Fidelity.
  • Area must be designed to be standalone.
  • Holes must feature a teleport in and out point using teleporter we provide. You may adapt it to your needs.
  • For consistent and reliable hosting, the assets must be hosted via the High Fidelity Marketplace back-end. More on this process can be found here.
  • Contestant agrees that their submission will be licensed under (and compliant with) Creative Commons Attribution license.

  • Sound design
  • Originality
  • Craftsmanship and performance

Example

In High Fidelity, check out Cupcakegolf, which gives an idea of what we’re looking for. We created this cupcake-themed piece of the course for fun. Notice it complies with our requirements:

  • It stands alone. Notice how it has its own skybox and is surrounded by a setting.
  • It uses the basic tiling pieces for the playing area
  • It has an fun theme and style
  • It uses our teleport in and out points

Results and Prizes

Submissions will be made available on semi-permanent display for High Fidelity users to enjoy on our new mini-golf experience. At the conclusion of this event, High Fidelity will host the winning submissions as a component of the High Fidelity Mini-Golf course accessible to all users. Come and be part of this project, contributing to the greatest user-generated mini-golf course in the metaverse!

Up to nine winners will receive a cash prize of $1000, recognition in our blog and prominence on the official High Fidelity Mini-Golf Course. The High Fidelity Mini-Golf Course will be hosted by High Fidelity on a mix of different domains.

Hello everybody!

Our High Fidelity Mini-golf Challenge concludes at midnight, PST, September 26th, 2016. All entries need to be submitted before this time.

If you’ve created a submission for the event, please be sure your entry has been submitted in the High Fidelity marketplace back-end so our judging team can see what you’ve made. Again, your submission assets should be submitted via the New Item button on the High Fidelity Marketplace back-end.

Be sure to select the Contest Submissions category when submitting. This is a special category which does not show up on the Marketplace itself. As a reminder, we are not putting your submissions on the marketplace for download, unless you ask us to.

If you would like to invite the judges to visit your domain to personally try out and test your submission, please email caitlyn@highfidelity.io and we’ll schedule a time to come try it out. Also, mention it on the event discussion thread– invite your friends and fellow community members to give it a shot!

If you are having any problems, have questions or concerns, please ask them on the event discussion thread, as the deadline is coming up soon.

Best of luck!

Caitlyn
