I can't submit a level to the contest due to having a broken left movement key. Sorry. I would have made a quite difficult airship level based on skewers but alas it couldn't be. If I changed my controls, I'd eliminate all the skill I have with SMBX and I can't do that...so I have to now get a replacement key... :evil:

I could volunteer to test your level if that helps.

Am I allowed to upload my levels on Github; and because I posted both at the same time, it merged the double post.

I'd say you can do whatever you want as long as it's easy to download and a stable source. What keeps you from using the common sources Mediafire / GoogleDrive / Dropbox?

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

Simple; my accounts are full. (Most of my submissions go on Discord due to ∞ space as long as no file exceeds 8MB)

Are SLAM levels (especially with LUA scripting) generally preferred and judged better than other levels that have a good design?
Freedom, Human Rights, Fairness, Democracy, Rule of Law, Righteousness, Courageness, Human Nature, Conscience, Goodwill, Ethics, Beliefs, Hope.

I'd say you can make a level both for this contest and then put it into SLAM (though that's not exactly encouraged)

"SLAM level" isn't a design trope and therefore I don't see the distinction between that and any other level for an episode. Generally speaking, levels for episodes usually were crafted with the episode's context in mind, so their submission is unlikely to match well with the rubric and expectations set forth by a contest. It's like taking only the pickles from a burger and calling that a standalone meal. While a good pickle is better than a shit burger, it cannot compare in flavour to a good burger. So I think that's the kind of score relation you may expect from episode levels vs standalone levels.

This post was brought to you by burger gang.
Ideas are useless if you can't make them real.

All my assets from packs and episodes are free to use for non-Novaverse levels and projects, as long as proper credit is given.
