    Just to practice I made some cliffs. Took about 50 minutes-

    If anyone wants to copy this look I used the jungle rock blends and bulletcrops sand and water. For the trees I obviously used the ones from Frontline! and the sky is from Frontline! too.

    7.2hrs aye? That's enough time I think to make a Territorial Control map.

    I'll be incredibly dissapointed if I don't see a Territorial Control map. You're gonna have to sniff cocaine before you start cracking at it!

    So, i actually wasn't serious when i suggested a 3 stage PL map. But i've been talking about it in chat, and if the staff doesn't have a problem with it and someone really wants to try, i'd like to give out an additional price for that.

    So, if you manage to create an enjoyable 3 stage PL map (contest rules apply, "enjoyable" just means that i don't want you to half-ass it,) i'll give out, with respect to the jam medal:

    Specialized Killstreak Strange Citizen Pain Mini-Gun (Factory New)

    Yes, that's the Jimijam Minigun. It holds quite some sentimental value for me (although it's only valued at like 2 keys) so make it worth it ;)

    I honestly didn't expect that. I'd say that i'd get a second one of those guns, but depending on the number of entries, i might run out of money before everyone has his weapon.
    I'd say i'll figure out a runner-up price in case that there are actually 2+ people crazy enough to do it, and them hand out those prices in order of how they placed in the contest. Does that sound fair?

    I'm literally going on vacation from the 27th to the 4th. This is my luck in a nutshell.

    Last minute question- can the game mode for a gameplay entry be non-serious or must it be a traditional game mode like koth or cp? It may or may not be something considered "serious" enough. I have a map planned for an infection-style game mode.

    It doesn't need to be a "serious" map at all - just be aware that that's what you'll be up against.

    The sign-up sheet is now up!

    How To Enter
    • To enter, you need to sign up on the sign-up sheet before the start of the weekend.
      • If you don't sign up, your entry will not be valid!
    • This includes putting in the time you will start, which will give you a scheduled time to finish: You need to post your entry in the Submission Thread before that time!
    • All times are in UTC!
    Streaming
    I'll post a schedule for who's streaming when. Streaming isn't mandatory, but i'd suggest it! Grizzly Berry and Crash have written a fantastic guide to Streaming For TF2 Mappers, which you should check out if you're a novice. If you're not working, why not watch some streams? It's a great way to learn new tricks, and to support other mappers.
