Part 1 done! See [ame=http://forums.tf2maps.net/showpost.php?p=116945&postcount=49]here[/ame] - ABS This Friday, October 23rd, [ame="http://forums.tf2maps.net/member.php?u=551"]TF2Maps.net[/ame]and I will be facing off in a several hour long mapping challenge, beginning at 5PM EST. Courtesy of 2f2f's resident animator, Ford: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awfB1s01suA"]YouTube - Iron Mapper Promo[/ame] This is a friendly bout; we will both be tackling a pre-set KOTH setup in a given space and time. The kicker is, we'll be broadcasting both our efforts simultaneously via Livestream. This will be hosted via our favorite community, 2fort2furious. A little about the community via our admin: Originally an in-house event, we realized that this would be a great event for people to watch some rather experienced mappers work against each other, as well as experiencing something a little bit more intense than the mapping side of our community usually provides. I'll be narrating most of my work, and demonstrating solid optimization and displacement techniques, as well as highlighting important time-saving features throughout the course of the map. Ace's stream is slightly delayed, but you'll be able to see that he outpaces me in most respects of mapping! However, I intend to kick his ass Additionally, our shoutbox will let you talk with other viewers and respond to the livestreams which will be streamed side-by-side! Check out the interface: So, to get you all in on the fun, we're relaxing our membership rules (which usually rely upon consistent server time and mic use) temporarily: So: Register Join our Steam Community Post your username and a link to your Steam Profile in this thread! Though this is to get you guys to be able to watch both livestreams and discuss, perhaps you'll find our community dynamic interesting, or stay to test upcoming maps, as well as your own, with one of the most popular and regularly filled servers out there. Hope to see all of you there, and if you like what you see, we have a community movie night every Friday that begins shortly after IRON MAPPER ends.
