IMPORTANT NOTICE: This contest has been cancelled due to the lack of entries. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Theme: Anything Goes
Categories: Beauty, User Friendly, Realism
Beauty: The map looks absolutely amazing. There is the least amount of flaws.
Realism: The map does not contain any futurisic or fantasy features that deify the laws of physics such as Plutonium Powered Hoverplates or Psychic Fields to protect people. It has anything you’d expect to see in the normal world where mad scientists dont exist. Basically, its a replication of the world of today or the past. (even midevil times)
User Friendly: The map conains many features that do things (like an artillery cannon that actually fires) but still looks good. You can also actually play the map too. (if it’s a garrys mod build map, there are places for you to build and test things)
You may enter as many maps as you please but may enter a map into only one category. The map can contain any content, even custom content, but must be run in the source engine. (eg. HL2, CS:S, GMod) You cannot use NPC’s unless you are in the User Friendly category, Be careful for you can distract attention from the map to the NPC. If you are submitting a Garry’s Mod map, you can only use contraptions if you are entering the map in the User Friendly categry. You can us as many screenshots or videos as you want to display your map but be careful for adding too many pictures or videos or even long videos may result is some parts of the map being skipped during judging week. You can only use maps that you made. This means that if I find our map on garrysmod.org or any other uplod site whith a diferent username, you and your map(s) will be disqualified. You can add your map anytime you want but the deadline is August 15th 2009 for hte rest of that week is judging week. Any maps added during judging week will not be entered. The winer will be announced on the friday which is August 21st. Any questions? Ask Infested at the steam group Mappers Anonymous (public) or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also PM me on Facepunch. Good luck!
