Create an entirely new character or costume for a character. Maybe add a new ghost costume for Bart? This costume should be available from a clothes shop and easy to obtain.

  • You may submit new characters, new costumes or reskins of original costumes.
  • Do not "port" characters from other sources unless it does more than just the character model (i.e. character voices, new animations, etc. are all acceptable for ports)

Create an entirely new vehicle or reskin an existing vehicle in Halloween fashion. No, flames and skulls on Bart's car is not spooky.

  • You may submit new cars or reskins of original cars.
  • Do not "port" cars from other sources unless it does more than just the car model (i.e. custom engine/horn sounds, new animations, etc. are all acceptable for ports)

Level Mods
Create frightening missions and/or spooky experiences with level mods.

Level mods can be any of the following:
  • Campaign mods (creating new missions).
  • Texture mods for the level or levels.
  • Completely new areas for the level or levels.

Mission Mod Requirements:
  • Mission mods may include 1-50 missions.
  • Your mission mod should be marked as a "Main" mod.
  • Your mission mod should finish with a credits sequence.

Please ensure you flair your topic accordingly.

  • Creator Event (Costumes Only) is for mods that only feature custom costumes, or the costumes section of this piece.
  • Creator Event (Vehicles Only) is for mods that only feature custom vehicles, or the vehicles section of this piece.
  • Creator Event is for any mod that features Level/Mission mods or a mix of Costumes/Vehicles.

Ensure you've used the correct flair, otherwise your entry may be missed.

If you have any questions, please ask us in the replies below and we'll be sure to answer them!

A contest that actually ends? This community has become oh so creative this year.
I'm excited to see what cool things that you all make for this contest!
I've got ideas and I'm excited for this.
Damn this sounds like fun. Now I've got a purpose!
This reminds me of a similar event back in 2016, boy
Wish everybody willing to participate luck! It's gonna be interesting to see what people can come up with 👀
Good luck to everyone!
I Know this is kind of a dumb question but does the mod have to be Halloween themed?is that i want to participate in the contest but my idea has almost nothing to do with halloween.
@ArthurGarcia12345: If its in the spirit of horror, halloween and other aspects of the holiday such as fall, candy, Treehouse of Horror, ect: Then it is fair play. If you're making a random mod, it really doesn't pertain to this, but I hope to see it regardless! If you give a little more specifics, I may be able to answer this question more directly.
@Jake Andreøli i want to make a mod which changes the missions,cars,skins and wasps placement but not the map,which means that level 7 will be halloween themed..
