    So you all just spent 2½ months raging, sweating, selling your hats, just to create a perfect Mann vs Machine map, failing constantly, just because nothing works like it should. So now that it's March, you have a new task, to create the most wacky, crazy, dumb and original, April fools map.

    Summary
    You have about 1 month to create the most original and crazy map, that's in your opinion would be the best of the best for April fools. It's totally not, the map is awful, (just joking). It is up to you to decide what you want to add in your map, that would classify it as crazy or wacky and also original.


    [​IMG]
    Rules
    • Must be a completely functioning map.
    • Maps must not be playtested publicly or shown to the public before the deadline. (You can still test it locally, don't ruin the 1st April surprise for others)
    • Map must have at least 32 spawnpoints, 16 for each team.
    • Must have at least one element of craziness.
    • Can be any gamemode, but Mann vs Machine.(Just because it would be nearly impossible to play the map in a joke gameday)
    • Maps don't have to be detailed, as judging will be based on craziness.
    • No directly copying any existing map, whether made by Valve, you, or someone else.
    • All custom content allowed.
    • No collaborations.
    • Max 2 submissions per person.
    • Name your submission this way: "af_<gamemode>_<forumname>"

    Deadline

    The contest will end March 31st, 2013. There will be no submission thread. You will have to personal message me your map, just for the surprise.

    Check your timezone!

    Countdown

    I will not accept any map sent to me after the submission deadline, so make sure you send it to me in time. Also, there will be no grace period, so make sure everything works.

    Prizes

    First Place.
    Any game on steam (£15 max value)

    Second Place.
    Any game on steam (£10 max value)

    Third Place.
    Any game on steam (£5 max value)

    Testing and Judging

    There will be a test held on 31st March/1st April, featuring all maps that have been submitted. There may be more than one test, depending on amount of maps submitted, and people willing to play them.

    Each map will be played for 20 minutes, or 15 minutes if there are 10+ maps to be played, just so playing all maps wouldn't take 4-5 hours.
    A gameday thread will be posted on 31st March, 7 pm GMT time.

    There will be a public vote thread open later on, where you will have to vote for your favorite April fools map, which you felt was the most suitable one. Voting will last for 1 week, so everyone will have a chance to play the maps.

    Winners will be announced on 9th of April.

    So uh, I've had a map that was part of last years April Fools gameday that I've been... improving on since last year. I doubt I could submit it to the contest, but any way it could get played during the testing of these? I have legitimately been working on it on and off since last year in anticipation of this years April Fools gameday.

    We had a joke gameday last year for those who missed it. It is the origin of the now infamous foolsgrid.

    Other highlights from that include:
    • Billiards (extremely nice looking too!)
    • Skaterink (an oldie, but a goodie)
    • Aquapump, where the control point is slowly sinking into the water
    • Non medival degroot keep
    • Badwater (rainy), entire map is flooded and most of it is covered by water. Including the spawns.
    • weed, a two cp A/D map where the last cp is captured by standing on a giant joint while being dizy.

    I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS

    It's meant to be a fun day so it should be able to enter! Like you said, might be excluded from the contest part but it'll still be fantastic to play on.

    Totally understand the whole 'no custom models/textures/ect."

    but please let use non-TF2 music.


    I beg of you.

    Uhm, there is no such rule. All custom content is explicitly allowed.
