    Is play testing allowed before the map is released for the competition?

    I have a few questions.
    1. Can I use Displacement to make map more enjoyable to play, or I should use just a flat ground?

    and,
    2. Should I upload my map only to submission thread, or I can upload it anywhere?

    1. You can do whatever you want with your map, it's your map
    2. If you want to be able to playtest it, you need to upload it as a map thread on this site. So no, don't only upload it to the contest. Upload it wherever.

    The contest ends in about two weeks. How is everyone doing? I've gotten a few requests for an extension of the deadline, and I want to get a feel for how many people are running on schedule or falling behind.

    I think a halloween deadline or somewhere close to that would be pretty neat

    contest have become way too short man, it's pretty much why I've stayed out of this one. It feels like this was announced yesterday.

    I didn't have a desktop for the last couple of weeks; would love an extension to be able to make something playable.
