In my opinion, ok this contest is great practice for your detailing skills sure, but you could get the same practice by offering to help someone else detail their map which is still in alpha or by attempting to make your own map and detaling that. This contest is going to be very disappointing for a lot of people and more of a waste of time than anything else imo. Obviously this is not true for all and if you feel you have a shot at winning the whole thing I heavily encourage you to finish it out and I'll be more than happy to give feedback on screenshots or help you with ideas/what not. I do think however Alien Swarms release last night was a huge success and a LOT of people I've talked to are just begging for more since you can only play the same 5 maps so many times, cough l4d cough 2fort. I'm more than interested in this game and think the community here is more than qualified and capable of putting out a really good campaign. I feel like one map per person or distributing the workload between people would be the easiest since mapping for this game seems just about as difficult if not a little more difficult than mapping for l4d. You could do payload in AS as well as maybe a ctf mode by going to the map grabbing something and getting out, add control points with slow cap times that trigger swarms for a linear survival mode or do a L4D gas can escort sort of thing where you need to bring something somewhere. Idk I'm depressed at how bad this contest is for the community, how much of a clusterfck the chat room is with random people and how little people are playing during impromptus as they stare down their dev textured walls saying what now. Love flame.
