    Damn, this is about how long it usually takes me to compile and upload. Is it all right if I skip cubemaps on this one?

    Well to be real: 99% of the maps will be koth or something really small

    Well you've also still got the detail entries.
    Right?

    A girl flat out told me she wasn't interested in me today, but screw that, it's mapping time!

    On a serious note, if I wanted to make a pre-fab for a custom gamemode,* release it publicly, and use it in my 7.2 hour map would that be chill?

    If it's a detail entry do the rules of past detail entry contests apply?

    Yeah, that's fine.

    Hmm - any specific rule you're thinking of?

    Looking at the past ones it's actually only the size limit I'm wondering about. None, 2048, 4096?

    Are mappers still allowed to prepare logic beforehand or is that privilege gone for this contest?

    I'm going to put "fancy logic" in with other custom content for consistency's sake - yes, you can, but you must publically release it before the first weekend.

    Nope - size is only determined by how much you can do in the time!

    Can't wait for the usual suspects to make insanely well done and somehow fully detailed maps again, while I'll be standing in the corner with my bulky, malformed, painful to play entry, and the remnants of my crushed dreams. It's okay. IT'S OKAY!!!

    In this respect, could we possibly put a hard limit on the amount of testing you can do on a map? I feel as though this contest will be great to see who can work with less feedback, and add a level of competition for mappers to decide when would be best for them to use their limited testing opportunities

    Jesus, this is actually going to be a thing? I don't know if I look forward to seeing the results or dread it. Good luck to any that decide to tackle it.

    Was that one year where we did that as a warm up just before the contest started.
