CTF Mapping Contest (by GlobalGamers)

#1
Introduction
GlobalGamers Network presents a CTF mapping contest for the Xonotic community. Our goal behind this contest is to acquire new maps and to stir and challenge the talented artists of the community. Anyone is allowed to and encouraged to participate, and we're looking forward to seeing what you can do!

Guidelines
  1. The map must be designed primarily for core OR vehicle CTF gameplay, although the map can support other modes and mods, it must be primarily focused around core or vehicle gameplay.
  2. All content used in the map must be opensource (GPLv2+) -- no exceptions.
  3. The map must be new and original, and not released in any previous form. This means no remakes, and you cannot submit any maps you have previously made.
Further Information
  • The contest begins today, April 26th and ends 3 months later on August 26th.
  • Winners will be decided by a Google Poll which will be open for everyone to vote on the maps provided.
  • The top winners will be given prizes which we may or may not announce before the contest is over.
  • You are allowed to submit maps which were started before contest, so long as they were not fully released and of course are not remakes.
  • You are also allowed to submit as many acceptable maps as you want, however you may not win more than one prize.
  • The list of accepted maps will be compiled at the end of the contest period, after the mappers have submitted the "final" version for the contest.
  • It is recommended that you publish betas of the maps as you are working on them, and promote testing of your map to get input from the community.

Good luck to the mappers out there, and as always: Happy fragging!

Note: We'd like to apologize for anyone who was expecting this contest earlier, we simply had a lot of things going on and didn't really have time to organize it properly. For now, we just pushed it out quickly to get it over with -- and i'm sure we'll be updating the post if other questions pop up or generally to clean it up later on.

#3
I don't know about you all, but I'm excited! Big Grin

#4
Good stuff, this gonna be interesting!

#5
Maybe if there are enough people who participate and releasing beta's someone could set up a server just for testing purposes? I'd love to see WIP maps grow to their final state over time.
Nice contest btw, I'll definitely participate. Smile

#6
Sounds nice but I won´t participate as I already have an important project: the map "warfare", which will be overhauled in every way.

So Good luck and have fun! for every other participant.

Did you skip over the part where there are prizes which you could win?

Participate in this and work on Warfare later, people want CTF maps Tongue

We're not sure yet, might not even announce them until the end of the contest -- however, they will certainly be worth while Tongue

#10
How exactly do GlobalGamers relate to Xonotic? Just curious that they would sponsor a contest for us. Who's their person of contact in the community? There is no information on this :x

not very convincing tbh Tongue
but anyway, i will try to find enough time to build something decent, i have some ideas already and just started to work on them.

(btw, in my opinion, the best moment in mapping is the very beginning, when you have some ideas floating in your mind or on some drawings and you begin to make them real, i love it)
<Halogene> ok "n1" means "nice one"
<Halogene> "gl" means "good luck"
<Halogene> "fu" means "wow that was wickedly nice that frag"

yeah, its easier to think about ideas, then realizing them Tongue
<Samual> I am the most unprofessional developer ever
<bluez> halogene, you make awesome music, but you have no clue about ctf.
<Halogene> I didn't know mappers include some mysterious waypoints so members of the BOT clan can navigate a map?
<divVerent> if you don't pay for a premium account, your movement speed is limited to 100qu/s

To give reference, GlobalGamers hosted a deathmatch tournament on their birthday later in 2011 and gave first prize to fisume -- which was a gaming keyboard worth ~$100 iirc... the second place prize was selecting any of the newer games (worth $60 each normally) released at the time... IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY.

Lets just say, the prizes will certainly be worth while -- if we can't get any other sponsors, i'll just front the cash myself as a reward.. and i'm willing to put up to $200 into the prizes.

#16
I will TRY to make a map too Smile

Not sure whether it will be any good (or anything at all), but 3 months is a lot of time.

after several days of mapping, i will be first to post something here, as a kick-off:

it's just a basic layout (not final yet), no fancy eyecandy at all. Basically, I want to make something different than my previous ctf maps, add more vertical action.

Good job, looks promising.

I have also started a map. It sucks quite a lot already and I aim to continue along that path.

sweet ... more motivation to finish up pyipelab

#25
A super super alpha preview of the CTF map i'll be working on for the contest: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/54224716/contest.pk3

Visibility blockers, cover object placement, colour, textures, lights, etc, etc, etc, everything but main structures is missing. It also has only 2 spawnpoints per team Tongue
