    So... my map had about 60 microbrushes, maybe even more than that. I got rid of all of them... so thats cool.

    Points are decided by whoever is voting. If the level suddenly cuts off at the edge, some people might decide to dock some points, and some people might not. In past contests, many maps have gotten away without them, but standards have also been rising. Maps with 3D skyboxes will almost certainly do better than those without, simply because they are more fleshed out and look better.

    i dont understand how youre suppose to have a "good" 3D Skybox within that Space when you already used most of the Space for the actual Map

    Also, I wanted to add on to XEnderFaceX's question. If I made a skybox thats 2048x2048, but the 3D Skybox scale was 16, making the skybox look like its stretching to 32768x32768, would that still count since the box is still within the limits or do we have to take the 3D Skybox scale into account?

    Within hammer itself, everything has to be within the same 2048x2048 square. It does not matter how large the skybox displays as, so long as the original, unscaled version of it is within that square.

    I'm having trouble with the map pack uploading at the moment, seems to be an issue with the site. It will start when I can get that working.
    Sorry for the delay.

    If anybody does their voting early please make sure you have the latest version of the files, as I allowed one map to have it's packing fixed slightly after the deadline.

    I noticed Mine isn't in the video. Did I miss something that might have been important?
    (Not blaming this one you.)

    No, I just accidentally skipped over you when I was downloading the map. I'll do a separate video on yours tomorrow.

    Nice reviews! I just wanted to say this now, the windows were actually breakable on my map. Just a little detail I added.
