I'm sorry to hop in.

But reading this "I like to use one of my unreleased maps for the contest" makes me sick.

I can't read it anymore. It's a damn contest and the rules are so simple: Build a map from scratch like in every contest.. Is that so hard to understand?
I only joined one contest over my mapping career and even I can followed that simple global rule… :noidea

Where is the fun and the challenge if you use a nearly finished unreleased map?


I'm really sorry for that but I needed to say something about this.

That is why I asked.

I don't really care for the contest, but my nearly finished map can be used as bonus material if that is ok..

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?

And here it comes once again "miss-understanding rules" eternal debate toward a contest rules:
- You need to start working on a map AFTER announcing beginning of contest (an old map might need 1 minute of work for being finished = almost cheating);
- All assets are UT default INCLUDING GOTY with official bonus packs - whoever need files, download all these "packs" and install them properly not lost files posted in forums;
- Bot Support - Operational and Not guessing and without testing and writing "reasons" - it's 2019 BTW - Asking help is under discussion. Without help map might go into another junk posting;
- Net Support - missing this and posting bullshit excuses = -100 points at final voting stage. Again - asking help... - ALL MAPPER can do some probing toward net games - read forum... I had ZERO mapping skill when I started my first net game :mrgreen: .
- Crusher map for 80% of players = Forum Warning = Temporary BAN until mapper will get a positive from the medical examination toward mental state. We are not here for ruining game;
- MAP means a file usable not only an UNR file with no purpose;
- Stock re-textured as other lousy simple things are not mapping and not in subject for votes as long as these are not a build from byte Zero.

Fans and Others:
Contributors with various assets, modifications, old unfinished maps and being finished right now, they are welcomed to introduce their show, outside of contest but as Add-Ons, a sort of protocol according to contest event, not a subject for voting winner.

Of course, this is what I understand toward a contest - I think I'm thinking straight... and I shared my opinion after looking at 3 pages of this topic which I don't get why does it need so much discussions. Are you mapper mapping news ? Prove that.

You want to add your map as a bonus content ...then please use the badge and add -20AC- before your map-name but after the gametype prefix.

Then count me in, I will submit CTF-20AC-BloodRush as bonus material!

Greetings!

Just stumbled across this thread yesterday. I'm interested but I've also been out of the game for awhile. Not sure if I can get up to speed and produce something quality in time with work and life and such. But I'd like to try! Maybe I'll start drawing/playing around in the Ed and see if I get anywhere in the next week or two. It would be cool to be a part of this.

Well folks, crisis! I can't get anymore big box UTs for prizes. :(

Not sure what to do. I can get jewel editions of UT99, UT3 (physical and Steam code) and UT 2004. Maybe a Steam code for UT GOTY? I can do that. :)

Thoughts? I'm actually feeling kinda stressed about this...

Whichever works for you best @Carbon. Are GOG codes possible?
