    That seems okay to me, as long as you also finish equally early. Let me know when you start.

    My earliest possible start time will be 3PM GMT on friday, and i'll try to get a final compile ready no later than early monday morning. I'll let you know when i start.

    I might be able to stream if i get my hands on a second monitor before friday. If i stream, the channel is https://www.twitch.tv/drlambda - expect low quality headsets and mediocre quality mapping skills.

    So ehm I am kind of new and I want to be part of this project. So I have two questions.
    1. Is there any kind of Template I have to follow?
    2. Where do I post my entry?

    You're fine, don't worry. We actually want you to submit your entry in the category that fits it best. What matters is that you used the 72hr tag!

    I guess I'll give this a go. I just wonder which I should do: A gimmick april fools-ish map, that hybrid of CP and Payload that OW has, or just a normal map.

    "The clock is ticking gentlemen. Get going."

    Oh yeah, I love me some gimmicks. I'm going to be using shewowkees's TF2 zombies prefab to create a Mayan/Himalayan/egypt styled... thing. It's going to be lots of fun to map for, and hopefully fun for people to play on too!

    If that doesn't work out, I'll make 21 SFM posters where each merc represents a hero from overwatch. Reinhardt is medic with his MvM shield, Zarya is heavy with pink hair, Pharah is soldier with the air strike and battle bird, etc. Either way I'm excited!

    @LeSwordfish Is it alright if I start and end the Jam 24 Hours before the time specified so it lines up with my weekend time here and not dig into my week

    1. Nooooope do what you want how you like it so long as its tf2 related.
    2. Post it as a regular map submission and use the 72hr label

    I might start early as well. Though it depends will I do so. Will hit you up if I do so.

    Edit: I will likely start 12 AM since it's 3 PM in my time and I would literally miss a night if I started 9 PM.

    I'm getting so excited about this, I can already feel an adrenaline rush. I hope I don't burn out before Friday!

    I've already set up a collab with an awesome SFM artist. I hope the project turns out as awesome as it is in my head. There's 12,000 other things I want to do (mostly SFMs, videos & pixel art), but my goal is to complete just one project to my satisfaction (which didn't really happen during the Winter Jam . . . but it was a great learning experience).

    Tfw team decides it's smart to put official match at same time the Jam starts. RIP minus an hour.. I'm sure 71 hours is good enough to make two .pop files
