    7.2 hours?! That's how long it normally takes me to compile!

    Still, at least I'm pretty much certain to be able to find the time to enter this one.

    Sorry to be a pain but does this mean that even if you just want to make a detail entry it has to be a fully playable map and not just a detail environment?

    I kinda have to admit 7 hours is not enough to make a fully functional map at least have it be a day I know it is suppose be challenging but it simply is not enough time I am guessing only 5 people will enter with not good work and 7 hours still what if someone makes a fully fledged decent map and then they would have to make a finalcompile they wouldn't have time to make the final compile especially for people with ''toasters'' maybe a day would allow for better entries I know it is for challenge but 7 is not enough for a decent entry.

    It can just be an environment - i've tweaked that rule to clarify.

    I disagree - it's very tough, but you CAN make a playable layout in seven hours. The first version of Backlot was made in three, I made one in four - it's doable!

    Can you plan the layout outside of Hammer before the 7.2 hours though?

    There's not an easy way of telling - but we should be able to spot which ones have more than the right amount of effort put in. Between us, we've a lot of practice from older events.

    To people saying this might be too difficult, this is why this contest was described as one for veterans.

    My only concern is testing, as its the most important aspect of a speed mapping contest.
