    OK - 1:
    The first post was a joke referencing how something's gone wrong the last couple of contests (despite I was very positive there, grumble grumble) And then after you replied, my mind just went: "Oh shit, we've gotta prove him wrong" and then it escalated a bit...

    and frankly, I'm just gonna stop myself now and just close that off right away. A few little escalating misunderstandings plus human psychology is how the veteran crisis happened.

    Well, I also believe in karma and lucky pennies, so, let's try out this new thing!

    But... I'm a teenager... and... negativity hormones... so... oh this is gonna be problem...

    Back on topic, there is a very good chance that I will attend this, seeing that the last one was pretty good. I'll most likely join the mumble chat(or whatever we use this time). I may try invade ctf again or perhaps another custom game mode.

    I sadly won't be able to participate during the allotted time, I'll see when I'm free and edit this post. I won't straight up and tell what I'm planning on doing, but I will give you a hint: I don't want to waste any space. ;)

    I'm sorry, I have to go back off topic for a second, I just need to clear this up.

    So, I found out a bit more about self-fulfilling prophecy. And when I did... I realized that you totally misinterpreted what I said.


    I meant something that ISN'T my fault is going to happen. So I can be as confident as I want, it has nothing to do with something random like that.

    You thought I was saying something that IS my fault is gonna go wrong at the last second. (Well, of course it's my fault... but... I'm talking withing my human boundaries)


    But... having said that... I'm pretty sure there's a name for a thing where your attitude creates UNRELATED problems as well, which is what I at FIRST thought you guys were talking about.

    Now just think, everyone...Do you really want a painting of your map with dev textures? Better save a few hours for detailing. :p

    I picked a good 72hr contest to decide I wanted to shoot for a fully detailed smaller map!

    oooh that's not a bad prize for a 72, because most of the maps are veerrry light on the details. Like free concept art :D

    It might not be as significant as a painting... But I'll add this to the prize pool:

    I've always wondered, it says you can't start mapping "in Hammer" until the contest has begun. Theoretically, could you just create a vmf with Notepad and start working in it?

    I'm definitely not thinking of trying that out, by the way.

    Probably not. ;)


    Also, I will probably be streaming here: http://www.twitch.tv/pigsareit
    I don't know what I will do for the contest yet, I've tossed around a dozen or so ideas but haven't decided on anything. Gotta be cool.

    A sudden change on plans stops me from entering the competion.
    So nothing spectacular was lost.
