    Was your map sealed? I think having a leak in your map can cause fullbright forcefully.

    Leaks make light behave worse, like no bouncing and dynamic light, but they don't cause map to be unlit completely.
    As of Fulbright, you might have accidentally disabled VRad, or have the game enabling Fulbright for other reason than having no lights (like a bug, previous map being loaded with Fulbright)

    Is it possible that the map was compiled with HDR lighting only? In that case, LDR will appear fullbright.

    Will the survey/rating results be made public? It would be nice to see how close we got, for the people who don't hit 1st place or runner-up.

    Judging the Layout Entries

    Layout Map Pack - Judging Survey
    All judging is public, so you, the unwashed masses, can decide who wins. The Layout judging will work the same way as the Detail Judging - play as many maps as you can, and rate the ones you've played.

    To Judge:
    • Download the layout map pack above, and extract it into your tf/maps folder.
    • Join our playtests to try out the maps in a server.
    • Once you've done this, go to the Judging Survey above. This asks you to rate each map from 1 to 5. Do this, and leave a comment explaining why you chose that rating.
    • Yes, you can rate your own map.
    The map with the overall highest rating at the end wins! Easy, right?

    We reserve the right to discard any judging that seems suspicious (such as giving one map a 5 and all others a 1). Please play the maps, and don't just rate based on the screenshots. You don't need to play ALL maps, but please don't rate those you haven't played.

    Playtests

    We should be holding playtesting for these maps every other day or more until the 20th September, when judging will close. I'm going to try and split this between EU and US servers, at more or less the usual imp times.

    Disqualifications
    The following maps were in some or other way gamebreakingly broken and had to be disqualified: ad_relay_a1, cp_rivertrainmapsomething, koth_vienna_08, pl_kellogg_a1. Without these, there were twenty-five entries to this part of the contest.

    Map list:
    ad_fastlame_c1
    arena_papershadow_7mayann
    arena_pullout_7hour
    arena_saluto_a2a

    If someone rates their own map, will their vote still be considered in the results?

    arena_pullout_7hr is actually called arena_pullout_7hour.

    Also i have to say that i think it's weird that this isn't considered gamebreaking (I don't have the mayann pack installed on this pc.)

    Fun fact: I named that on a whim after thinking about military lines and stuff like that. And "pull out" came to mind, I thought it sounded good so I just named it that.

    Now my map is an innuendo, not that I'm complaining, it's fun to see the responses :jimijam:

    Just a quick reminder not to update/test your map until after the contest is over. I've accidentally been adding some of these entries to my imps after finding them in the VBot queue.

    Video feedback on every detail entry. I can't be arsed to name the videos and/or provide individual links, so just dig through this playlist to find your map's video (or watch all of them!).
