    It's the ultimate accolade for a custom mapper; to have your work in an official TF2 map. Well, TF2Maps.net and Valve Software have teamed up to give ONE lucky mapper that opportunity. We've got our hands on an unfinished Valve map, and we need YOU to detail it! Think you're up to the challenge?

    Neat! Our own Valve-sanctioned community contest like Polycount got! I can't wait to see what our members come up with! I'm actually considering giving it a shot myself.

    Seems a bit like a collaboration, no?

    You might want to clear that with someone before going forward, make sure that all he does is give you textures.

    What?

    What I mean is, when the contest thread is open, he will create an account here and post his map. I'm just creating textures for him.

    I only just joined to see what all the competition was.

    Officially intrigued. I've been looking for an excuse for a mapping project this summer. I'll take part if I can come up with a decent idea. I was gutted I didn't have the time to take part in the Polycount contest.

    What are the rules regarding the swap pack (i.e. who do we need to get permission from?)

    You get your map made official.

    Dunno about money though. Normally official map makers get $2k.

    Custom map authors got 2 grand, 2 thousand dollars. No, it is not a typo.

    (although thinking about it, they might have got $2.5k, double check with an actual official custom map author to be sure).
