By jblewisThe two levels for January 2012's Time Trial competition. Designed by John Lewis.
By M11k4Here are the levels for the March Time Trial 2013!
I'll post more information in a thread in the competitions forum.
#1 - Hexominos
#2 - Nested Replay
Hope you enjoy!
By LessinathThe thread for this competition can be found in the competitions subforum.
This is a competition where the goal is simple - survive as long as possible!
Winners will be determined by whoever lives the longest, and they will be granted points to the "chip cup". If there is an exact tie, the person who submitted first will win the tiebreaker. This is subject to change.
The participants will receive points to the Chip Cup.
This should be played in the MS ruleset, for consistency. The first level is very random, the second level has some randomness and the third has no randomness at all.
To submit your attempt, you may either:
Post it on YouTube or some other trustworthy video hosting site,
Email and attach your AVI submission to cczonenextlevel at gmail dot com
List your username and this competition in the subject. Keep it short and simple, Something like: "April 2013 Survive Competition - Lessinath"
Submissions will be closed on May 2nd, 2013 allowing 30 days to complete this competition.
The last time this was hosted, it was brought to my attention that it might do some good to link to recording software. I have not tried it myself, but I have been told good things about Camstudio: http://camstudio.en.softonic.com/
By M11k4Here are the levels created for the March 2013 Create Competition!
The levels included and their designers are:
Level 1 - Michael
Ancient Glider Temple - Flareon350
Tricks & Traps - CraigV
Shemozzle - jblewis
In or Out - jblewis
The Beach - Minus3K2
Flip-Side-Up - random 8
That Ticking Noise - rockdet
200m Free Style - rockdet
Protect Me as I Protect You - BlazingApollo
Bricks - random 8
Impedence - random 8
Bringing Up the Rear - BigOto2
This is basically the order I received the submissions. I'm uploading two files, one is just the set with the levels, and the other is a zip-file that contains a ccx-file where some of the designers explain things about their levels. The zip-file contains the ccl- and ccx-files in the data folder, and two dac-files in the sets folder.
We will hold a vote for which levels everyone believes deserves the title of the best for this month. Details and instructions for how you can be part of that will be found in a new thread in the competitions subforum.
By LessinathThis is the pair of levels for the November, 2012 Time Trial Competition.
"1,2,3-trinitroxypropane" is certainly an explosive level, containing a mixture of some dodging, block pushing, and even a joyride item swapper mix. Yes, there are two walkers, but they're easy to manage.
"The Chosen" is a pure melee level. Just you and the teeth, plus a few other creatures for flavor.
I hope you enjoy it and score good times on these levels! Best of luck!
1.1 provides a fix for "1,2,3-trinitroxypropane" in Lynx. Thanks to Miika for pointing this out.
1.2 *IMPORTANT* makes several major changes based off serious negative feedback I'd received about some sections of the level. Also, teeth in the walls for flavor.
By M11k4Two levels for the December 2015 Time Trial:

By LessinathCreate Competition Febuary 2012
The really important things:
- This level must be solvable in both MS and Lynx, but Pedantic compatability is not required.
- Email this level to Rockdet at rocket_rg (at) msn.com * Be sure to specify who you are and what competition this level is for.
*note: This isn't a direct email link to make it harder for spam bots scanning the web to grab his email address.
This is where it gets intresting. This is an experement. For science.
- This level must use the "template" - this file.
A few important notes:
- First, these are not rules, that would be too restrictive. They are useful notes and advice for what we're looking for.
- Second and most importantly, design something fun.
- Utilize the ouside walls, and open space between sections as you wish. There's a lot of open space because we want to see what you can do with this.
- You don't have to use anything there if you REALLY don't want to. Your level will be accepted and considered no matter what you do, however, levels that stay truer to the original template will be more likely to win.
- Moving the sections around will not count against you.
- One note about the ice slides: You can move them around without it counting against you, because we realize they may get in the way. Do try to keep the start and end points the same.
- You can change door positions and colors, except the green door maze, without it counting against you. Same goes for the keys.
- Levels with a canyon or wild west theme will recieve addititional bonus points.
These levels will be due by 0:00 GMT March 1, 2012. If you're not sure what time that is by you, submit it a day early (or earlier!) to be safe.
Email to rocket_rg (at) msn.com
You must list your username and the competition that your submission is for in the title. Keep it short and simple, something like:

By rockdetThe level to play for CCZone's February 2012 Treasure Hunter Competition.
By M11k4It is finally here! Inside this download you will find all the entries to the Create Competitions for the first four years from when CC Zone was created, as well as all the Time Trial levels to date. These are split into three sets that each come with a ccx file summarizing some of the info related to the competitions. A total of 28 people made these 123 unique competition levels that were part of 48 competitions. That's quite a bit
Update: now added the next two years worth of competition levels too! I didn't do the exact calculations like above, but there are 74 new Create levels and about 20 new Time Trial levels as well.
So the sets you are getting (along with their accompanying ccx and dac files) are:
Thanks to all the people who created these levels! They are an important part of CC-history.
This compilation will be updated when needed. Like if you want to comment on one of your designs included in this release, it can be added into the ccx file. You can also expect us to add more files to the collection once there is enough material. All feedback is appreciated.
By M11k4Can you steal the Cross of Coronado and get away with it?
Points are awarded in this fashion for gathering items:
chip - 1 point
blue key - 5 points
red key - 8 points
yellow key - 9 points
green key - 15 points
opening a lock or socket - 0 points
However, this artifact comes with a curse and there is a twist!
It is not always the person who gets away with the treasure
who ultimately is the best treasure hunter. In fact, the winner
of the competition is the one who comes closest without
scoring the most points. You may enter up to three times,
but better get to it before the train passes by without you!
For more information, check out the actual thread!
