:rock: party has begun guys, between anth announcement with patch 469 maybe would be a nice idea (Im suggesting something, ain't a important guy who contribute anything in ut scene lol,im only a old ut player only) make timeline to match when ut pach is published do the same for this mappack understanding or keeping in mind what pappercoffee ask for mappers to do their best or decent or quality maps...I find the end for time limit to put maps just finished a bit rushing or overlapped (my thoughs again dont bite me)

what if you guys could put your best finery (like do oscars actors and actress with their elegant clothes used to wear when going to the oscar awards) to celebrate the 20th year of live for our beloved UT? maybe you could talk with ankh to secretely match their release for both when Ankh its done...

Is only an idea, of course, no offense :mrgreen:

Pin it!
"Everyone is an idea man. Everybody thinks they have a revolutionary new game concept that no one else has ever thought of. Having cool ideas will rarely get you anywhere in the games industry. You have to be able to implement your ideas or provide some useful skill. Never join a project whose idea man or leader has no obvious development skills. Never join a project that only has a web designer. You have your own ideas. Focus on them carefully and in small chunks and you will be able to develop cool projects."

My plans are to make a "vanilla" CTF map with stock textures, but to also include all the mapping tricks and lighting tricks I've learned over the years.

I never analyzed the looks of those maps, it's just the way it looks in our brains after all this time and I never really looked. :)

Notices of contest went out to all the still active UT-communities, plus the Twitterverse.

Really gotta research hashtags for UT more...

Does it mean we can't use old unpublished maps, or that we can't just modify published maps?

I make it simple:
if you want into the contest to win the EPIC pack build your map now ...new from scratch.
if you just want to have a map in the map-pack as a bonus content take unfinished stuff or build or rebuild or what ever.

But at the end we (staff) will have the last say... if for example, someone send in a re-textured Deck16, we won't put it into the map-pack.

So, are you in the contest or in the bonus round?

I was talking about maps that have never been published but that could be completed and published, not about publishing unfinished maps.
