INTRODUCTION
We interrupt your usual programming to bring you a new 72hr contest, hosted by yours truly for some bizarre reason involving interdimensional wormholes and the spectre of real-life! This'll be the seventh bi-annual 72hr mapping contest, and with any luck the most impressive yet! Start your Hammers, and enjoy! (There's no theme this time)

RULES

  • Respect the time limit! You may not start mapping in Hammer until the contest has begun.
  • You may not use any elements from old maps. Simple prefabs, such as stairs, prop sets, and entity setups are allowed.
  • You may create sketches of your map before the start of the contest.
  • Any gamemode, custom or official, is allowed except MvM.
  • Your final entry must be submitted before the 72hrs run out. This is no "grace period".
  • Any physical file size allowed.
  • Custom content is allowed, but only if it's made entirely by yourself OR available publicly before the start of the contest.
  • Maps must be able to spawn at least 24 players (12 per team).
  • No collaborations are allowed!
  • You are allowed to use A Boojum Snark's resource library and other such packs and prefabs, such as the lighting library.
  • You are allowed to use Fr0z3n's Map Start-up Prefab
  • You are allowed to test your map as many times as you wish during the 72hrs. There will be impromptus hosted by staff/members throughout the 72hr time period. If you have the time to have your map tested, it is HIGHLY recommended that you test it.
  • Your submission MUST follow this naming convention: <gamemode>_<name of map>_72_version. You can name the map whatever you want. You just need to have _72 in it somewhere. Versioning (_a1, _a2, etc) is highly recommended.
  • DO NOT USE CAPITAL LETTERS OR SPECIAL CHARACTERS (. , $ % &, etc) IN YOUR FILE NAME!
  • Multiple entries are allowed, it is not reccomended however.
  • Your entry must run on TF2Maps.net Servers
  • Your map must including lighting, however basic. (And it shouldn't be too bright either!)
Failure to adhere to these rules may result in disqualification. If in doubt, ask.

BTW- when you say: don't start mapping in hammer till the contest starts, I assume you mean just your contest entry.
