    Jump Jam is somehow similar to TF2Maps 72h contest. I know that jump maps and mappers are not very common here, but here is an announcement just in case someone would like to try himself as a jump mapper. TF2 jump mapping ideology is slightly different from regular mappers' minds. Usually maps never reach high levels of detailing. The main goal is to make a map that is enjoyable to play. However, noone stops you from making a short but pretty map, we do have a category for that.


    What is this ?

    The main idea behind this is to get people who either haven't mapped before, fail to finish maps due to motivation or otherwise love staring at grids to sit down over 72 hours and just make some form of a jump map. Inspired by similar events for surf mapping and the TF2maps jams.

    The map does not in anyway have to be complete. A submission with 3 awesome jumps may be better than 20 rushed dev-texture jumps.
