    It's my reading week the week after next, I really enjoyed the Summer's 72 hour contest and quite want to repeat the feat.

    I know it's not a convenient time to hold a big competition so I'm just going to be doing this one on my own, anyone who has the time to and wants to join in is welcome to.

    I'll be recording the entire thing, start to finish, Last time I spent about 44 hours actually working (Didn't sleep one night) and making a timelapse at the end of it.
    First ever map recorded from empty vmf to final bsp? Quite possibly. How long will it take to watch? An eternity. (44 hours played at 16× speed which is what I found to be the limit after which the video is just a blur, is 2 hours 45! Though admittedly I included testing time in those hours and I wouldn't record that.)

    I'd like your input on what I should do in that time. I know you'll all tell me to do a tc map because you're crazy bitches like that, it's not gunna happen. What sensible gamemode would you like me to turn my hand to, is there any crazy (yet doable) constraints you think it would be fun to work to? Want to suggest a theme? Any other ideas on how to make this more interesting?

    I'd like to see a construction theme'd or swamp themed multistage payload or cp? Or a 2-3 CP A/D

    Yeah some nice use of the spawn theme would be cool, how about a csf map? would be interesting to see your take on the gamemode

    EDIT: yeah I meant swamp theme and Mangy's csf mode

    Arena and KoTH seem a little obvious, so CTF.

    Spawn theme? csf? Are you typing on a phone?

    I guess you mean swamp and ctf.

    uuuuuurrrrghhh if I make a ctf it'll be bad, I loath ctf so I'd have no idea if the layout I was making would be suitable or not. Sorry guys, as much as I want to appease you, I can't justify rushing a ctf map.

    a starcraft 2 map

    alternate cheeky answer: good thing you're not making a model or you'd never be able to do it in that short a time!!

    A/D are always fun gamemodes and you won't regret spending time on it. What about 3 point CP map like manor/mountainlab using assets from bulletcrops?

    Whatever mode, try doing something fun with water. TF2 mapping isn't wet enough.

    Its pretty damn close.

    This man knows.

    I think YM, CSF would be fun and challenging for you, and would interested to see what you came up with.

    Lol, okay, in HD then. (I recorded in HD, but exporting in HD would've taken days, so I downgraded it.)

    And it was *pretty much* finished.

    2 stage PL, like 1 checkpoint on first stage and 2 on second.

    so like the pl setup of the last two stages of goldrush

    happy 1000... and I suppose I'd have to agree that another CSF map would be fun.

    I could do both. If I do arena or koth I could probably bash out a map in 24 hours
