Is play testing allowed before the map is released for the competition?
Yes; in fact, it is heavily suggested. Check our page on map testing for more info on how to test your maps
Welp I literally started studying making maps in Hammer earlier today so WISH ME LUCK. o/
This looks fun.
Just as I looked into getting back into mapping a contests is ongoing. I love this timing. Lets hope I can make something worthwhile or at least fun to play
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?
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.
An extension would be neat.
I think a week would be pleasant
Straight-up I need three more months
I think a halloween deadline or somewhere close to that would be pretty neat
I like the idea of more time.
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.
extension might be nice but idk how much more time is too much more time
I didn't have a desktop for the last couple of weeks; would love an extension to be able to make something playable.
I could use more time.. more time for everyone should mean better quality entries hopefully.
My contest map is only at version a1 so an extension would be useful to me
I think that 2 more weeks will be pretty fine for ppl
