Welcome to Microcontest 22: Solids


Name: Solids
Difficulty: 3/5
Time Limit: 24 Hours

Today's challenge is to make a fully-functional map that contains no more than 199 solids.

Every brush in Hammer counts as one (1) solid; this includes solid brushes, triggers, skybox brushes, displacements, brush entities, and more.

You can check how many solids are in your .vmf by going to Map -> Show Information -> Solids


Please include a screenshot of the number of solids in your map in your submission, like this:


If your map includes instances, you must add up the total the solids in every instance as well. The combined total may not go over the limit.

Bonus Stamp:
Have no more than 99 solids in your map.

Submission Procedure:
  1. Please name your map <gamemode>_<yourname>_mc22_a1
  2. Create a download for your map in the downloads section of the site
  3. Reply to this thread with a link to your map's download page, and include a screenshot showing the number of solids in your map, like the example above
  4. Maps must be submitted to this thread no later than 10:00 AM EDT (14:00 UTC) on August 14th, 2022
  5. Add your map to the TF2maps Discord Bot to upload it to the servers
  6. Testing will begin shortly after the deadline, with maps being playing in submission order
Good Luck!
