    Are we allowed to update maps or do we have to wait till medals are out?

    You don't have to wait but site-based updates are on hold until after the showcase.

    As opposed to waking up in the night, screaming "Ah!"? Why can't it be both?

    Wasn't strictly learning them, but, confirmed a few modeling/texturing techniques that save oodles of time, like turning a single circle into a curving piece of coiled wire, how to get (mostly) perfect weighting for a "collapsing to flat" animation with a point matrix, and using screenshots of the model at exact angles to get the blueprint model's texture done right the first time without guesswork.

    Oh! Did learn a few console commands to skip the "waiting for players" timer at the start of the map so I could begin testing without waiting an extra 30 seconds per compile, and how to restart the round to make iterative "well does it break if I do it this way instead?" tests without relaunching the map. Those were handy.

    So can we start updating our 72 hour entries now, or should we still hold out for the showcase?

    I am offended by this lack of lemons. There should be an overabundance of lemons. Lemons need to be pouring from every clothing item on my mercs. All of their orifices.

    All of them.

    Looking back at my map, I could have made the mid room larger and continue working on the lighting. I'm pretty happy with what I produced for the most part. Also this was my first time detailing so I have alot to learn in that respect in order to get to what I had in mind.
