    When it comes to our community, we believe to have many talented and amazing artists. We've never had many design-related community events yet.

    With our recent addition of support for chairs that alter your character's position, as well as double-layer chairs in this patch, we really thought about creating a chair designing event.

    MAPLELEGENDS: DESIGN A CHAIR EVENT!

    EVENT RULES

    1) Chairs must be drawn as pixel art, in order to be eligible.

    2) Existing game assets may be used, but the majority of the chair must be custom-made.

    3) A chair must be designed in a TRANSPARENT canvas with dimensions up to 200x200 pixels.

    4) Special properties must be specified:
    - if the chair will always face one direction (default: chair flips horizontally with the character)
    - if the chair has two layers (one layer behind and one in front of the player. Default: only one layer behind)
    - if some frames have a custom duration (specify each duration. Default: 100ms each frame)
    - if the chair has a randomized design every time the player sits (please provide every design and its chance to appear. Up to 4 random effects. Default: only one design)

    5) Chair design must include the default sitting player, facing left:
    [​IMG]

    6) The player may be positioned anywhere on the chair, but cannot move during the animation.
    Note for randomized-effect chairs: the position must be the same for every design.

    TERMS & CONDITIONS

    A) Collaborating with other designers for ideas or sketches is allowed. Your entry must include the concept sketch, in addition to the finished product.

    B) Community members from other MapleStory servers are allowed to participate.

    C) Using copyrighted designs (eg. characters from other videogames) is prohibited.

    D) Plagiarism is not allowed. Your design must be an original concept; claiming stolen art as one's own may be subject to a (temporary) in-game ban.

    E) Each participant can submit only one entry. Collaborants' IGNs must be included in the submission.

    F) Editing details of your own entry is allowed, but the overall design idea cannot be changed once submitted.

    G) Staff will declare a winner entry; the winner design will be implemented in game at a later date, and the winner participant will receive a special prize.

    H) Staff reserves the right to alter details of the chosen entry as deemed fit, in order to properly blend with the overall game design.

    I) Additionally, staff reserves the right to implement additional submitted designs that did not win the contest.

    ENTRY FORMAT:
    Code:
    IGN(s):
    Chair name:
    Chair description (optional - will automatically include credits to the participants):

    Concept art (please use a spoiler):
    Special properties (if any):

    Special properties (if any):
    The chair has two frames, as indicated in the Frames spoiler.
    Every other property is by default.

    Notes (optional):
    Chairs are comfy.

    For the first time in MapleLegends, we are holding a chair design event! With so many chair feature supports now we want to see how creative our community is.

    For this round, we give users a lot of freedom. However, please do note that quality is important. We do want the chairs to fit with existing chairs, so it's almost like they are official quality-wise.

    Note: There have been other servers in past that had similar events. Please do not steal/take any chair that was made by any of their users since it's stealing, and the same plagiarism ruleset will be applied. However, if you were an author of any chair you made for another server you are allowed to submit it. Please note we require screenshot proof of you being actually that person and that you've designed it.

    Disclaimer: Any chair submitted allows us to do whatever we want with the chair. Such as, adding it to the cash shop, using it as an event, using it as a community prize, etc. We will also not remove the chair from the game by request after it made it into the game. By submitting a chair you've agreed to this.

    Deadline: September 18th 2022

    I have a question about this point. Regardless of whether we win the contest, if our chairs are added into the game, will credit be given in the description like other custom chairs that have been put into ML?

    Yes... However, if the person really do not want be associated to the chair anymore we could remove the credits. The chair remains in-game though.

    Attention participants!

    It somehow slipped our minds that our Chairs also support randomized animations; this is now been added to the possible design variants!

    You may design a Chair with up to 4 random effects, each with their chance to appear upon sitting, much like the Rabbit Lamp chair from this event or the Cat Mug chair from last event.

    Because this is a sudden addition, all entries that are above this very post may be fully redesigned once, should you opt to go for a random-chair effect.
    Please refer to the text version of this Event poster, for details about the entry.
    Have fun!

    Hello all!

    - When submitting animated chairs could you please post every frame in .png format? The way MapleStory animations work is that it loads every .png with x delay. Posting a gif downgrades the quality of the chair by a lot. The proper way is also showcased in the sample submission.

    - Some entries such as EmiizEmiiz lack information such as the name and description of the chair. Please refer to the sample submission for details.

    Concept art:
    Just a random thought came across my mind that Ronnie might have been making his own Banana Milk after all these years collecting the following items from users,
    and so I thought we deserve a banana milk chair since we took part of it via completing the quest.
    Isn't that true Ronnie? :p

    Hi Motto, and SwordnBoard! I hope you both don't mind. Let me know what you think, and if you aren't okay with the inspiration just let me know and I will remove the post!

    Is it possible for me to revoke my previous "Tall Tales" entry in favor of this one?

    IGN(s), Two Collaborators: mabinogi, maRnu

    Chair name: HP Washing Machine
    Chair description: Is it already that time?


    Inspiration Given By: Motto, SwordnBoard (James on Discord)


    Chair with default player (animated):

    HP-Washer-Machine-AnimatedGif-100.gif HP-Washer-Machine-AnimatedGif-200.gif

    Single chair frame(s) without player:

    The base frames (this is the inside of the washing machine):
    HP-Washer-Machine-BaseLayer1.png HP-Washer-Machine-BaseLayer2.png HP-Washer-Machine-BaseLayer3.png HP-Washer-Machine-BaseLayer4.png HP-Washer-Machine-BaseLayer5.png HP-Washer-Machine-BaseLayer6.png HP-Washer-Machine-BaseLayer7.png HP-Washer-Machine-BaseLayer8.png

    The second layer, on top of the character:
    HP-Washer-Machine-SecondLayer1.png HP-Washer-Machine-SecondLayer2.png HP-Washer-Machine-SecondLayer3.png HP-Washer-Machine-SecondLayer4.png HP-Washer-Machine-SecondLayer5.png HP-Washer-Machine-SecondLayer6.png HP-Washer-Machine-SecondLayer7.png HP-Washer-Machine-SecondLayer8.png

    Inventory Icon (Thanks to Ju for the reminder in their post):
    chairinventoryicon.png


    Special properties (if any):
    The chair is animated with eight frames, and makes use of foreground and base layers.
    The animation looks best at a constant frame rate of 75ms for all frames!
