A new contest is being announced, the Cubic Mapping Event!
The theme of event:
Let's go back to the day Cube 1 existed, and go edit old-skool!
The map's geometry stands at the centre of this challenge, because you have to create a map where curves aren't allowed at all.
Why no curves? Because Cube Engine (2) isn't great for creating curves anyways (duh, look at the name?).
Why only cubes? Because if you could use the disadvantage of the engine, as advantage, by not trying to create expensive curve-like geometry.
The rules of event:
Create 1 map especially for capture the flag. Adding any other mode to it is at your own risk but can have consequences when people vote.
Size doesn't matter, but there's a maximum of 24 players wandering around on the map and a minimum of 6 (like for clanwars).
You have 60 days to create the entire map from scratch. This should be enough for a ctf map. Why not just 30 days again? Because as you've maybe noticed on the 30-day mapping challenge, the ctf-maps were failing in such short time.
The actual date of starting this challenge:
- Saturday the 22th of October 2011 at 0:00 (GMT+1, timezones will be checked)
The actual date of ending this challenge:
- Tuesday the 20th of December 2011 (and so do you start on that date and end on that date!).
Why this decision? Because that make the contest end up close before Christmas, Where it seems like most people have time for gaming (so for voting maps also).
You need to post on at least once a week (at last every saturday) a screenshot or the upload the .ogz-file itself of your map.
