    I specified "Not Valve" because there's already lots of resources (templates) for making those "untradtional" gamemodes floating around, but what I was looking for was more of an "Innovation within Hammer" contest, revolving around gamemodes. Hence, allowing Valve game-modes would lead to a slew of new Watergates and Doomsdays, not fully new modes like, say, a 4 CP map.

    I am technically looking for more innovative map gamemodes similar to Watergate, Doomsday, Standin, Byre, Powerhouse, and so forth, but I don't just want copies of those map's logic. I want people to take Valve's I/O system, and use it to create somthing totally new!

    How about a April Fools contest? Make an April Fools map of any standard gamemode (no VSH, Jump, or DB), and the most fun, original, and hilarious map wins!

    Edit : Challenge Mode - No KOTH maps.

    I'd really like to see another serious 72hr mapping contest, rather than a jam. Just to push the limits of what people can do.

    We usually have something like that for fun on April Fools though. An unofficial mini-contest would be fun though (like what Crash does)
