At @Nightmare 's request, I've created a thread where you may list the favorite features of quests you played in the contest. This is for two purposes: firstly it gives finalists a chance to see what everyone liked best in the quests in one place, so that they may decide what they wish to append to their own maps. Second, it gives us a chance to assemble the 'perfect 5th' quest that takes the best of each and makes an awesome classic amalgamation.
Two winning features that come to mind for me:
@zcfan27330 's "Search for the Sword" mechanic, wherein you must traverse most of the world map without a weapon to find the wooden sword. It was just pure awesome-sauce.
@BtjCraft 's Dungeon 6 mini-boss: battle with the Mirror Wizzrobe (No mirror shield). I played the dungeon with the green ring and no magic shield, and this fight was just amazing. I think it would be great as a Dungeon 2/Dungeon 3 boss.
What features did you like best in the contest? As an incentive for other competitors to participate in this, if you mention one of my features I'll explain how to replicate it in the editor (Only two things in my quest used scripts; everything else was enemy editor and combo cycling). I hope others will follow this example.
