What is LEL?
*Loveable Entertainment Locations *(LEL) describes your favorite location in a movie, videogame or book that you are going to replicate in Hammer!
What could I base my map on?
Examples could be from a videogame, such as Empire Bay (Mafia) or Rapture (Bioshock). Perhaps you’re more of a movies person, then examples would be the Temple of Doom (Indiana Jones) or Two Peaks (Back to the Future).
Or you’re more of a book person, then you could decide on the Moscow Metro (Metro 2033) or Mordor (Lord of the Rings). As long as they’re recognizable, it’s allowed. Be sure to pick a cult movie with a famous location, although this
isn’t against the rules. Comic books count as books (atleast in this competition).
**Half-life 2 was my favorite videogame! Can I base my map off that?
**No. We cannot check if you simply decompiled the map. No Source based maps or games.
Can I import models from the videogame location I’m making?
Yes. You may also use textures and sound effects. You may even download textures, models or sound effects from say, FPSBanana. It would be neat if you also tell this.
**Can I make up a location?
No. **You must name the type of media, title, and preferably a reference picture (this is hard for books, therefor this rule is excusable).
**Can I judge for this contest?
**If you’ve got some mapping experience, then sure! Apply in the thread.
What is the prize for this competition?
**Currently, there is no prize whatsoever other than community fame. This might change if there are polite people who are willing to gift something for the winner(s).
I have finished my map! What do I do?
Post the .bsp, a video and a few screenshots. Make a post in this thread. Try not to create a new thread for this competition alone (unless you wish to release it publicly). You can also send it via PM to me or the judges (UNDER DISCUSSION).
Could you give a few more examples?
• Cruise ship from Titanic
• Chocolate factory from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
• Mos Espa from Star Wars (that desert village on Tatooine with the jazzy club)
• Supermarket from The Fog
• Hellboy’s crib from Hellboy
• Bat cave from Batman
• Citadel Station (System Shock)
• Omega (Mass Effect 2)
• Channelwood Age (Myst)
