The Ut99.org 2021 No Rules Mapping Contest

After a year break, we are back with a mapping contest, we hope to see many submissions this year. :)

Deadline: December 19th 00:00 GMT (or UTC +0)

Rules (just a few, don't worry):
- Must have the badge (contest logo) added somewhere in the map, badge coming soon!
- Must have NRMC prefix in the final submissions name (for example DOM-NRMC-NameHere)
- Must be an original map started by scratch during the contest, not a clone of an existing one (maps started before the contest are accepted as Bonus Maps for the final mappack, however)
- A readme with credits of the custom texture, music, sound and other things you used)

Not rules, but these should help out:
- Have bot-support and a screenshot for the UT menu.
- Double-check to include all the files needed to run the map.
- Add a few screenshots of your map in your release post, to help draw interest for your map.
- Would be best to not overdo on custom files used, the maps will later be put in a mappack, and it would be better to keep it somewhat small in filesize.
- Upload the map and all it's files in a .zip, .rar or .7z file, in a filehosting site like MediaFire or Google Drive etc.

Voting will be done from December 19th till 25th, as a poll. During that time the mappers can iron out remaining bugs for the mappack.

Good luck!

Oh it's on :D. I'm sure that this will be another great mappack. Also if you have any questions about technical issues, or map layout, actors, bot support, etc. fell free to contact me to give you a hand.

Good luck to everyone. :tu:

Why not? :shock:
And what would qualify as a "remake"? For example Deck_40, started as another Deck16 remake, but ended up something drastically different. It even has an "original" feel. So I guess this needs some clarification. If you got inspired by another map to make your map, or you took a few elements, is it "remake"?

Maybe you should have a mapping contest for maps that don't include the standard textures but are custom created. IMO going from 1 map to the other where the same standard textures are used makes for a boring day. They all look the same, only rearranged.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Yes, Tater, I agree. It would be nice to see NEW, plenty of NEW. :tu:
That said, we should be grateful that at least we still have mapping contests for this game. And I think the NO RULES approach is the right one. But yes, NEW would be nice.
