    I'm fairly new to the forums, so I don't know if this has been done before (probably has). Anyway, I have created a spawnroom. Its red themed and contains a window looking into another room. There is nothing else in the room. Thats it. No info_players, nothing. My challenge is to see what happens to this map. You can turn it into any game mode, and any theme. It would also help to include BSP as well as the VMF when replying and uploading.

    I would love to see the outcome, and it would give me some insight into Hammer.

    --edit--
    Well, I suppose either:
    This was an epic fail
    I didn't explain it well

    So, my choices are:
    Delete the thread (somehow)
    Explain it better

    So, I've decided to explain it better. It will probably still suck, but I'll see where it goes from there.

    It's a game. One person (me) starts by making the most basic room.
    The next person adds a door, for example. They upload that, and the next person will edit it.
    Maybe they'll put some sounds, or add detail to the spawn room. It's up to them.

    Anyway, thank you for the criticism, and I hope this goes well.

    PS If there any typos, it's because I'm on an iPod.

    P.S

    Remember, when you post your map, refer to this challenge.

    Moved to better forum.

    and this is a very strange thing... I'm not sure anyone is going to bother. We had a spawn room contest awhile ago with lots of nice spawns made if anyone wanted to use a premade one.

    I don't see the point? You've made a spawnroom that I (someone) can use and build a map of?

    Why would I chose to use your spawnroom, when I can just make one myself and have a completely original map instead I wonder?

    I downloaded the map and looked at it.

    What i do not understand is that you created a blocky spawnroom with 10 brushes and nothing else and are wanting people to download it, use it and credit you? :confused::confused:

    I think your mind is in the right place and its a cool idea. There was a contest like this held here not so long ago.

    In general though why wouldn't you detail the spawnroom?

    Ah see i think most people thought use your spawn room and make a whole map around it.

    TY for clarifying.

    It's not the Valve spawnroom.
    Also, I just thought, you can retexture anything, you dont have to stick to my crappy textureing abilities.

    Anyway, glad I cleared up the confusion and thanks to everyone for the helpful comments.
