    Default A Scripting Competition...

    A Scripting Competition

    Note:
    This isn't an official SRL scripting competition as I don't have the power to give out Scripters Cups but there will still be a prize.

    Introduction:
    After looking through these forums I have noticed that there used to be scripting competitions, I know a few still run now but I thought that one that gets people scripting would be fun for everybody. It would also get a bunch of useful scripts for people to use once it is over.

    Details:
    There will be 2 classes, SRL Members and Non SRL members. Junior Members will be included with the Non SRL Members. The script you are writing will be the same and you will automatically be entered for whichever category you fall under on the day of submission. To submit your entry either post it in this thread or create a thread in the Public scripts section for it then post the link here.

    Rules:
    1. Your Script must be compilable by simba.
    2. All procedures not written by you *must* be credited clearly, this includes ACA generated procedures or functions.
    3. All scripts must be open source and must run from a single .simba file.
    4. The script must fill the criteria posted on the opening day.


    Marking Criteria:
    You will be judged based on:
    1. Quality of the code written and the efficiency of it. (10 Marks).
    2. FailSafes and how easy it would be to add new features to the script / fix it if there is a major update in that area, i.e. not a mismatch of random code that just about works for now. (10 Marks).
    3. Scripting Standards (5 Marks).
    4. Advanced procedures / functions such as object finding, including using functions so that lines of code are not repeated in your script. (10 Marks).
    5. Bonus points will be awarded for "out of the box" ways of solving situations. (10 Marks).
    6. How well your script actually works. (5 Marks).


    Total score will be out of 50.

    Date of Competition Start:
    Already Started.
    see the post below for script criteria...

    Date of Competition Close:
    Sunday 20th May. 12pm GMT
    All scripts must be posted on this thread in by this time.

    Prize:
    I am willing to give around 2-5m per category for this, if anybody else wants to contribute contact me.

    If you would like to take part in this competition please post below.

    FAQ:

    What about the issue that there will be lots of scripts of the same thing, isn't it a waste of scripters time?
    The script criteria has been designed so that this will not be the case, obviously there may be the odd person that makes a similar script but the way the script criteria will be will make it so that all the scripts will be useful.

    Can I the script that I use to enter this competition to apply for SRL members?
    Yes, by all means, good luck with your application!

    Do Junior Member count as SRL members?
    After much clarification, no, Junior Member fall under the non-members category.

    Can I use a script that is public that I wrote a while ago?
    The short of it is yes. However please try to add some new features to the script or at least something new, just in spirit of the competition...

    Script Criteria:

    Requierments:
    • The Script Must Be A Combat Script that attacks one or a group of mosters in a specific area. i.e. not an AIO Fighter

    Recomended:
    • Banking if appropriate
    • Eating if appropriate
    • Your own monster finding functions
    • Progress Reports (on or off SMART)
    • Looting
    • Safe spots if appropriate




    Why have I chosen this as the script?
    Because this way the scripts will all be similar so judging them will be fair, however there will not be a lot of identical scripts, so we aren't wasting each others time.

    Good Luck!


    I will add a list of people here that have entered, once they do

    2 questions
    Are SRL Junior Members in the same category as us reggies?
    And
    As you say above "All procedures not written by you *must* be credited clearly, this includes ACA generated procedures or functions." So this means that even the ODTM generator and SPS have to be credited? What are the repercussions for failure to heed instruction? What about the SRL includes and the ODTM include and the SPS include- do they need to be credited too? And if we platform a procedure but mostly change it, does that need credit as well?
    If you could get back to me on that it would be much appreciated. PS I'm holding out on posting my script so I don't get copied (I'm Finished).

    My script is finished but I will hold out on posting so I don't get copied
    I haven't decided, I'm not really sure what you have to do to be a Junior Members tbh, could you enlighten me? Also how can you have written the script, I haven't posted the criteria yet

    First part answered just above, ok:
    All procedures not written by you that are in the simba file you submit *must* be credited clearly, this includes ACA generated procedures or functions, you may use items in the SRL include and things like SPS and ObjDTMs.

    I'm going out on a guess- and I was making one anyway so I decided to make it uber. If it doesn't meet your criteria I'll definitely make another.

    Joe you are missing an end quote ;]

    and puto, you only need no be a member for 3 months, with 300 posts to be a jun mem. they should be in the same script category, although there should be junior and registered winners

    let them both write the same script since there are no scripting requirements to get into jun mem
