I think a contest for KingJosh to make a 1024 max UU map, lol :P and it better be good.

how about an MH map that has at least 50 movers. ?

A mover map contest.

Best I can think of is make a 3072x3072x3072 Unreal Unit (UU) cube and see if your map fits in it or not :P

The only concern for me is, should the skybox be counted in this limitation or not? If yes, then the mapper will have an extra challenge of either fitting it inside the limited space, or somehow manage to impliment it Inside the map.(Got an idea with that 2nd option lol). :mrgreen:

A mover map contest.
You can do one with 30 movers rotating in a slime zone and see if it do works, or contest will be turned into a "doing sucks mapping contest".

>> How about MyLevel contest - several custom ideas ? :ironic:
>> Or 4GB mapping contest - a minimum of 4GB for map. This work will be fully protected - null players will vote this ON-Line and probably 0 admins will use it :ironic2: - (modern times from year 2516), each map can be on a DVD (or a stick compatible USB 10.0).

I suggest ChaosUT as the theme. It includes many resources (inc. animated vegetation decos) you all have with a full GOTY install, but never use.
You don't need to map for the mod, as the mod just swaps the regular weapons anyway.
Perhaps Chaos would make a suitable Halloween theme for this year ?

Wait I forgot important details.
Maps should have (inspired from 512K types) PlayerStarts rotated with face at walls as much as possible. Player respawning must be killed from back :mrgreen: , and... at RocketArena (which I'm playing a bit) player with some buffered fire command will release rocket after respawn properly... :arrow:

I voted Micro-Map, because back in the day I loved maps like that... although they used to call them Giant-Sized Maps.

Somewhere or other I've got a mutator that makes players Giant-Sized, really gotta see if I can find that.
