    Here it is my simple looking concept;

    Well, I hope I can do a better job for the 72 Hour TF2 Jam and put my original map idea down into something rather than this concept idea fun map.
    Either way, here is my first 'map'.

    I would like to thank for their great support and help, Crash & Donkie; I hope I can do a better job at this next time.

    Thank you to all who have made this event possible; it means alot!

    P.S. If I am eligible at all for the medal, really pretty design indeed, I was wondering if at all Crash (http://steamcommunity.com/id/UEAKCrash) and Donkie (http://steamcommunity.com/id/NTDonkie) would be able to receive one as well for all their help and support with regards to all things Map-wise and MvM? Thanks again!

    Good luck to anyone who submitted, looks like there's some pretty great submissions!

    I also learned a valuable lesson from this. NEVER make my first map an MvM one for a contest.

    Another contest deadline knocked out
    Its been a hell of a learning experience, so for all of those who submitted, those who came close but just missed the mark, and those watching from afar eating popcorn, its been a good 3 months



    See you all at the 72 Hour Jam and for the next inevitable contest

    Congrats to everyone who entered, it was by no means an easy contest with mvm being probably the most difficult gamemode to map for. But I think the amount of entries and the overall quality shows just how much talent there is in this community.

    Also, thanks to hydrogen for putting so much of his time into testing maps, along with everyone else who showed up to the testing sessions, without the amount of testing you provided I think that none of the maps entered would be nearly as good.

    Lastly, good luck to everyone for the judging and I hope everyone can take something away from this contest regardless if you win or not :)

    Thank you for informing everyone about it. I agree that it's hard to test 30 (now 44) entries with 2 missions each. But can you please tell the mapper why their map wasn't part of the top fifteen (that you may or may not have turned into top twenty ?) and at least play a bit of the two missions ? I know some contestants put much more efforts in their non-normal mission, and it can be pretty frustrating to get dismissed without knowing why.

    I'm sure you planned on working that way, but like you I just want to see this contest being as fair as possible, and I'm sorry if I'm over-worrying about it.

    I thank you all for this contest, and I wish good luck to every contestants !

    Everyone will definitely get some feedback from our judges. No promises on the other popfiles (plowing through an advanced or expert pop file can take a long time) but where possible we can try it out.

    Is it cool to update cubemaps on a map if they are broken, before judging?

    Here's a zip file to all the entries to the contest. It's pretty heavy (850 MB) but if you install it you can skip waiting at fastdl.

    Client installation: Drag and drop the folders inside /tf/ (e.g. materials, maps, scripts) to tf/downloads

    Server installation: Do the same for client installation but drag everything to the /tf/ folder (/tf/ is in the folder that has the srcds binary in it). Upload the bsp and hud icon files (materials/hud folder) to your fastdl server. You will need to make/generate a .res file on your server to make clients download the hud icons (it's a simple but long process; PM me if you want to know how to do this).

    Thanks!

    When is the community judging likely to happen? also I can't find it, so when are the medals coming out?

    Thanks!

    Community Judging will happen once the judges have played all the maps and chosen a shortlist - my best guess for this is a week or so. Medals will happen at about the same time. Both of those are estimates though, so don't worry if it's taking longer. I'll post in here when medals are out

    We should have a shortlist for you by sunday at the latest! Everyone else is done, by the way - blame me for holding things up.
