    func_door gets my vote. Trotim's was quite hilarious as well and I must give him props on the way it was set up. Overall it took a lot of thinking to decide my vote. and after going through them all a second time. This is what did it for me. It really was a tough choice though. It's a shame I could only choose 1. =(

    Penguin's is great, but Func_door has got my vote as well. That map pretty much blows my mind.

    I voted for Trotim for the sheer unexpected hilarity. I had guessed it spelled/drew something but I would have never guessed it'd say that.

    Jack: cool looking. kind of trippy. seems unfinished and small. still looks really cool.

    func_door: WOW. cool lifts, love the particle trails replacing the track props. and the cart was cool too. very impressed. some of the mechanics used were interesting (even though im sure it would play terribly). good lookin' too. like the texturing/theme and the"You have capture green" both helped with navigation. would love to play on it.

    Penguin: was cool. i like peaches so it was extra cool. very nice. might be fun to play on too. how did you remove fall damage? :)

    Trotim:
    lol.

    martijntje1: like the mario-ness. small.

    martijntje2: i like this more than the first one cuz you can jump around and do things. i feel like it would have been much better if you had expanded it and maybe tried to make one or two things interactive. (mario world 1 remake anyone?)

    mick1: very cool. nice little observatory. only thing is the glass and the other stuff outside are white wireframes. was sad i couldnt fly on the space invaders :(

    mick2: i spawned inside of a brush. by far the most colorful one. like the waves and the middle thing. reminds me of a dr. seuss novel. one of my favorites, but i didnt like the skybox choice or the fact that we are just in a box.

    in fact, most (if not all) of the entries didnt have anything outside the playing area.

    They were probably all, more or less, equally good, but func_door's really stood out. might vote for peng if he doesnt get many (plus func is getting a lot).

    I loved the entries, especially Penguins giant orange and martinije's Mario stuff, great. Though I have to say, Func_door's map done it for me. I found Trotims an ingenious Idea though. Well done to everyone who participated!

    Anyone who doesn't vote for func_door is a communist.

    So, yeah, true story. I wasn't paying attention to the actual objective of the contest, and went, "Hey, I bet this would be a fun/silly night on the server if I ran these, blindly, without actually looking at them."

    :O

    func_door and penguin are beloved, btw.

    BTW, if anyone wants to actually play func_door, we're playing it for a little bit longer.

    EDIT: Nevermind, it's over. I think I may keep it in rotation, though.

    I'm amazed mine was even slightly bearable.

    I literally crapped it out the day of, because func_door was dissapointed that I had failed to finish an entry, despite spending the whole contest talking smack.

    I think people enjoy anything that allows them to be shot out of cannons. ;)

    (Also had a "Goomba Stomp" mod on tonight for added silliness, which was... quite silly, especially with the whole "fall off the edge of the map and get teleported to the orange" thing. So much death up there.... :O )

    Spawn camping seemed to be a bit of a problem, though. (Even if they were doing it unintentionally, since the spawns were outdoors.) Also, there was a bit of "stuttering" that you'd run into if you were on the rings around the orange. (Bonus points on making a literal "orange" map, btw.)

    A few func_door thoughts, it seems like the second point can turn into a real meat-grinder when defense actually gets set up. The elevator exit point doubly-so, since it seems like it's easily camp-able by the defense. It's one of those things that, when it happens, you've gotta yell at the rest of the offense to stop using the dang thing so they won't just jump in and die like lemmings. :facepalm:

    Did he by chance also fix the cramped areas near the loop-de-loop part of the track?

    Thanks for voting everyone. Let's congratulate func_door on his eye melting entry. I'll be contacting him to deliver his prize.

    I'd like to do this contest again sometime, maybe in another 6th moths, I'm sure the stakes will be much higher, and I'll contribute a larger prize. Thanks again to those who participated!
