    This sounds like a fun contest but I have only ever made jump maps... Would I be able to submit the final point of a jump map?

    I don't know what a final point of a jump map entails but that should be fine. As long as it abides by the rules.

    I'm gonna assume it's the area you get teleported into in some maps if you fall off the ramp and hit the floor.

    Gonna have to really wrack my brain for this one. I mean, I have a few ideas but they play maybe a bit too much on the TF2 Sci-Fi or even dream category. Might go ahead and do that anyway and do a second as something more serious.

    Sci fi or dream themed maps are fine...that's not against the rules. As long as it's not made in the style of another game like half life 2 then anything is technically fair game. The idea is simply to make a control point final of a bigger map, but that doesn't have to be restritcted to the themes or maps that exist in game already.

    Say I were to finish my entry, but I really liked the point... Say I then decided to work on an actual map based around the point, but kept the completed entry stored elsewhere in my files...

    Say I then finished the actual map, and wanted to upload it here to get some feedback on the map as an actual map...
    Would this invalidate my entry?

    I have yet to actually finish my entry, but I see myself finishing it really soon... I also really like my concept, and want to work on it further... But I would like to see if that would invalidate it, first

    Couldn't you just use an undetailed version of it for the actual map?

    Should be fine, as long as it's done within the time period.

    I know learnt that 4096x4096 is actually quite small to make something happen

    If you really know what you're doing you can use the insane amount of space the 3D skybox gives. You can build whatever brushwork you want in a 4096*16 area - larger than hammer can even hold - and shrink it to 16 times less. Props are the more difficult part but not impossible

    You can't build more than Hammer can hold for this contest - within a 4096x4096 area, you can fit a skybox that'll look like 65536*65536 (not counting borders that can take a tiny bit away), which Hammer can totally hold. Your point stays valid anyway, though.

    That's what I mean, you can virtually make something LOOK as big as that in the allowed space
