    Given that harvest was adopted by the almighty valve, I am guessing everybody is going to make christmas maps.

    so, who is seriously considering making a christmas map.

    I am, but If it progresses to slow, I will change the theme.
    basicely it is a ctf-race, think pipeline.

    both flag spawn in about the same location. models being overwrited by present models.

    the capture area is a big christmas tree on the other side of the map.
    (I don't think it will be anything near complete during christmas, but it is fun to make)

    Isnt it bad to overwrite standard content via a map, as it will be used in all following maps using those models?

    Not sure, though.

    one thing i always loved about valve is that they seem to never make the same thing twice. that's why i'm kinda sceptical if there shall be "every major holiday event stuff" in the future. so i don't know if that horse should be pay off in the end.
    apart from that, if so many people make christmas maps, you're good to get official with doing something unique --> a normal map :D

    I am not overwriting standerd content. In a recent update you can now enter an alternative model for the flags. you can even use it alongside "normal" flags, but somehow they arent showing up :p

    I wanted to work on a payload Christmas map where you blow up the enemy's HUGE Christmas tree and it falls over, but that's a ton of work for something I thought would just be kind of neat and pretty gimmicky. So not me.

    Uhh... yeah. pl_christmasrun.

    Although, it spawned from building the BLU spawn for a CTF map on top of an oilrig, which was a weird starting point.

    Valve will probably make a haloween update (and i bet some-one will make christmas health kit presents etc).

    I hope Valve just does "koth_viaduct_event" for Christmas, just to spite everyone who makes a snow map hoping to get picked up for the next event.

    Any map started after halloween would not be picked for christmas. The legal acquisition of the map alone would probably take those two months, let alone building it. :|

    Any christmas payload map NEEDS to have a Santa's sleigh model for the cart, pulled by robotic reindeer.
