I’ve been watching for awhile, and it seems its better to host a contest than to try to hire someone to design and craft a map (unless you have an architect around that can provide detail schematics)
So, contests seem to have a track record of providing talented results and a ton of creativity.
Lets say I wanted to fund a contest. Entries would need to provide VMF and release textures/map under open license.
Theme is space ship environments (bridge, engineering, docking bay, security with brig, etc)
First place: $100
Second place: $50
Would there be any folks that have hosted contests before that would be interested in providing judging/panel…
Feel free to rate dumb. I’m still new here and trying to figure out what methods get results.
