    Hey hey everyone, I'd like to know some of the best winter and snow themed maps in the community. Since I'm kinda new here and don't know the years of maps like everyone else does, I'd like to know where to start.

    Also, I have a gift prize for the mapmaker of the best map. This isn't a contest, just a token of appreciation from me. I should be able to decide by next Thursday.

    Sure thing, nominate your own, someone else's even so map with no owner :) I'm just looking for winter / snow maps for the Christmas season to play on my server :)

    >> Edit >> Ha! Stony Ridge, yeah it is good. We've talked about this before on a different forum. Good details, good exploration element.

    I can testify for Boundary, Stoneyridge, Obscure, HAARP, and Arctic for good snow-themed maps.
    My favorite out of all of them is ctf_haarp but that's just preference.

    You asked for the best winter themed maps. You never said according to whom.

    HAARP is good yeah, Stoneyridge, Boundary, and Glacier are favorites. I love the detailing in all of them. Gameplay is weird for HAARP but it could be worse I guess.

    I recall not getting to spend much time on Fusion. Wasn't it one of the contest entries? I want to give it a go again sometime.

    That's something we ought to do, schedule an event where we play beta or release-candidate maps that haven't been touched in a long time. Seems like not a lot of them ever get picked up by other publicly listed servers.

    I agree, I think some casual events of our more finished maps would be great, getting people to run events is the hard thing and anyone who has that free time for us is probably going to priortise that for running a Gameday as those are the events people know us for and the events that people will almost definately come to.

    I think Mangy'Carface's map for the comp ctf contest was winter themed and was detailied nicely, if anyone can recall the name of that map I nominate that.

    It wasn't winter. It was night and desert and industrial. ctf_wildfire.
