We continue to grow so much, I am also scared to think about the next step. But that's a discussion for another time Lots of contest news for you this week. Real quick, I have uploaded the demo from the Medic Training event. You can find it and all previous demo files (optimizing, details 101, etc.) in Tutorial Resources Downloads. Now the good stuff, lol. First off, according to this contest poll, it seems the majority of you would prefer to have an extension. I am therefore officially extending the deadline by 7 & 1/2 days. Bare in mind that the purpose of this extra time is for all you mappers to work on polish and fine-tuning the details. An extra week is not enough time to fix major bugs or design issues, so get crackin Second, an anonymous member of our ranks has posted a highly classified exchange between a certain 4-star general and the head of Valve development In layman's terms, there is a very good chance that we will receive a custom HUD for our Attack/Defend CTF mode. Full details here; http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=8149 Lastly, we have been given the support of our largest sponsor to date. The good folks over at Novint have donated one of their Falcon game controllers :wow: I have also made some updates to the other prizes. You can check out all of this in the official thread. Mad props to everyone who showed for Gameday Saturday. I didn't have to post a second announcement asking for players But we're still coming up a little short for the rest of the week. Obviously you're not expected to play map testing 20+ hours every week. But with a community of 1,000+ active members, we really shouldn't have to be calling for extras so often. That's all for now Privates. CinC Pig Humper, signing off.
