With the next 72 Hour contest coming up in just a few short days, I thought it would be nice to compile a thread of tips and strategies people have had for the past 72 contests. The idea is to help anyone from first time entrants to experience speed mappers, so share away! I guess I should start: - Download the ABS Mapping Resource pack if you haven't already. (if you haven't already, why haven't you?) - Sometimes I find it useful to create a grid of 128x128 unit brushes, each with a different texture I plan on using a lot. It sort of works like a painting pallete. - SAVE OFTEN so you don't lose any of your hard work to crashes!
