Default Autotelic Files and Packs - General Information

Hello everyone, it is me again bringing some autotelic stepartistry.

If you just want my files and are not interested in the lengthy part about my planned packs, just check this handy spreadsheet where my complete files, both released and unreleased, are listed in chronological order. I am always rechecking my unreleased files so any of them can change at any time before the official release in a pack (though the information in the Comments column of the spreadsheet should give you a hint on what to expect).

Regarding the actual upcoming packs, in contrast to my previously released pack, I am not focusing practice-oriented files this time around. This is a reflex of me not playing for improvement anymore, and should make things interesting for a larger player base. Also no dumps; I recognize their aesthetic potential but at this time I am not interested in working with those.

Here is a brief description for each of my future packs, including their status and banners (thanks cbr for those):


Status: 9 finished files, no gfx

Pack directed at lower level and accuracy oriented players. Secondary goal is to cover music that would otherwise be under-represented outside of dumps.

Charts should be easy by virtue of the best possible representation of the selected song, not due to underlayering (e.g. not a low level file for freedom dive).

Loose difficulty guideline is up to 15 on Etterna and VC on FFR, expecting most files to fall into the Etterna 9~12 range.



Status: 8 finished files, 1 gfx set

Yes. Exclusively TV Size anime OPs and EDs (note that for the sake of sound quality, in some cases an edited version of the full size version will be used, as long as it falls under 2 minutes length).

Also targeted at lower level and accuracy oriented players though there are no difficulty restrictions if a given song warrants a harder file.

Currently I'm mainly focusing on things I have watched or rewatched recently (refer to my anime list), but I'm more than open to suggestions of what to step.



Status: 18 finished files, 3 gfx sets

Pretty much any interesting file that does not fall into the other two packs. Focus on variety over all aspects of stepartistry (e.g. song choice, patterns, gimmicks, etc).


My plan is to have at least 30 files for each pack, probably more for Autotelic Anime. As you would expect, this is a massive undertaking and my tentative goal is having them finished file-wise by the end of 2020, releasing once I get all the necessary gfx.

As the packs' names imply, they are focused on my own [Autotelic] files. That being said, I accept guest submissions under the following conditions:

-Being able to make sense of my high level descriptions is part of your job;

-Instead of review rounds, by submitting a file you agree to letting me change/fix the file myself assuming I don't reject it right away for one reason or another. I will still send a brief review and you can send me additional changes later. If my changes are sizeable enough I will count the file as a collab and by that point you lose your right to veto the file release (though you can give up on having your name included);

-Once I consider the file good enough for release, it will be made available publicly in my spreadsheet (similar to my own files);

-At most one file actively under review per stepartist. A file is considered active after being first sent and stay like that until it is either rejected or included in my spreadsheet (see previous point). If you send more than one file at once, I'll pick the first one to review and ignore the rest while the first is still active;

-After submitting and until it is not officially pulled out or rejected, your file can not be released elsewhere before the official release in my pack. After that you can re-release it anywhere with the only condition being that you only get to keep the gfx if the file is unchanged. Breaking anything in this item means I will not spend my time with your files in the future;


I intend to make gfx myself this time around but any help is appreciated given the big number of files I'm aiming for. Refer to the spreadsheet for what needs gfx and just ask if you want any reference of what I expect for a given set. Check files with gfx done by myself (in this thread or through the spreadsheet) for a reference of what I'm expecting in terms of quality.

Submissions, comments, suggestions or any related inquiries should be posted in this thread. I will try to respond as promptly as possible.

Thanks for your time,
-Alice

Thanks for the offer! But if you are interested in sending anything, just read the submission terms and post a link to the file here.

On another note, I started working on graphics for my files. I'll post the set I did for Kyuubiko Yagyou (九尾狐夜行) in particular because I think it turned out pretty nice:

Rather keep everything here for transparency and to have the thread reflect activity on the packs.

While the charts make sense for the most part and are kinda fun to play, I think you are far too focused on making them enjoyable difficulty-wise. Additionally you are ignoring the big picture by designing things in a section per section basis. I reject them due to this fundamental mismatch of approach.

The main focus of these packs is representing a song to its fullest extent. Fun aspects related to physically playing the game (difficulty and cool paterns) ideally should arise naturally from song dynamics (structure, layering, interesting rhythms, etc), or at least designed around these dynamics. Overall difficulty is purely incidental and the file should be enjoyable even if one's level of proficiency in the game is far above the minimum to reasonably play it.

For a quick reference, you can consider my standards of quality harsher than the recent judging on FFR.


Also keep in mind the following term:
Quote:
-At most one file actively under review per stepartist. Anything that is not releasable or rejected is considered active;
I'll let it slide this time around as I could summarize the review quickly, but you should send only one file at a time. I'll reword the original post a bit to make things easier to understand and clarify what is considered releasable.

If you think all of this is too much trouble for submitting files, that's kind of the point. Only send something if you think it's worth having your file featured in a pack with my standards of quality and/or think you'll benefit from my input in the reviews.

Oops. My bad about the multiple files.

Also yes. Please clarify because my brain is currently fried like an egg with no ketchup on it.

I reworded a few things in the submission conditions. Either way the following is still relevant if you expect to get anything here:
