Spacebuild Mapping Contest!
As Facepunch’s resident Spacebuild nut, I figured it would be fun to have a Spacebuild mapping contest of sorts, so here goes:
Your objective is to build a planet. It could be an earth type planet, it could be some bizarre alien world, whatever. One month from now, on October 10th I will pick out seven submissions to be compiled into one map. Once the map is put together and released, We’ll put it to a vote here on FP as to which planet is the best on the map. The winner of the vote will receive a steam game of their choice, up to $30 US.
Players may enter by posting screenshots of their map here on the thread.
Mappers will be notified by PM if their planet is chosen, and an email address will be provided for you to send your .vmf to me. I will announce the chosen maps in the thread.
Maps can be built using either HL2, CSS or EP2.
Custom resources (textures, models, etc.) may be used as long as they are sent to me along with the .vmf.
To ensure we can fit each planet on the map, the maximum planet diameter will be 6144 units.
Planet shells are optional; if you do choose to provide your own shell, PLEASE use a model rather than a brush.
All content must be original.
To start you guys off, here’s a link to Pelf’s Enhanced Planet Dev Kit, which I use religiously in my mapping adventures.
As an added bonus, if someone comes up with an awesome enough space skybox for the map (spacebox? starbox?) the designer will receive a $5 Steam gift.
So get creative! Be sure to post screens of your progress in the thread too!
Let me know if I missed your name
CONTEST EXTENDED TO OCT. 31
