    I have one more question.
    I made a base for Red and Blue but I have to do it from 0 on the map like that?
    Or can I give copy-paste?

    Ideally, you'd want to do the majority of the work during the Jam. You can use prefabs and such, like entity work, doors, etc, and anything provided in packs like this. For the most part though, its all about what you make during the 72hr time period, so hold off until then if you can!

    3 things:

    1) Im so excited, and have an entire map overview rough draft already functioning, and im just so ready
    2) can you tell me why we cant get a different medal every year? like, why not have this one have glasses, the next one be inverted colors, etc.
    3) will @Crash be taking part in this jam, or will he be absent from it, like last jam? Because i really enjoyed watching his streams for the first jam i took part in...

    Valve has asked to reuse previous models for all recurring events. Presumably so they don't have an absolutely insane amount of medals in the game.

    As of now I have no plans to participate with a big stream like I have in the past.

    To add on to the medal comment - recurring events will be re-using medals, which is why the Jam will be keeping the JimiJam medal for the time being, just with a different name each Jam. Since the charity medal is being introduced with this one, we're allowed to make a new one, which would be re-used in the event of another charity drive being ran in the future.

    Maybe this time I can make a map I'm satisfied with.

    Fuck it, meme maps are the hot new thing.

    Well, I leave for vacation on the 7th (and let's minus the 6th for packing), so that should give me...
    24 hours. GG WP, wish all you luck on your entries!

    You can do your Jam earlier if you contact staff about it.
