I'm not gonna win in any way shape or form, but do I need to resubmit my map if it's been updated?

Depends how you submitted it. If it's a link to the vault or a link you updated, then nope. If you uploaded the entry from the compo page, then yep. I'll download the entries after the compo closes so you have until then to make changes.

I resubmitted several times after I updated each time. I hope that wasn't, like, stacking them up on that end.

I had trouble updating my map for the vault, and now I'm not sure if the link I used when submitting my entry even works. Should I resubmit just to be sure?

Just checked, your link is working fine.

That looks fantastic from the 2D Tet surprised - :o

Found it impossible to commit to one direction for this one--even with the generous extension--, but also found brainstorming & getting reacquainted with Sledge a fun journey of discovery.

I may upload a dev/test version of mine before the deadline, depending what I can finish the next 2 days.

Wish everyone good luck & congrats on a great turnout for this compo smile - :)

Mr. Good Map!
Unfortunately due to the absolutely massive amount of coursework I've had for university ( you guys are more than welcome to read it if any of you are curious ) so unfortunately, even with the extra month I haven't been able to make any progress.

I will however upload a .zip file with ALL of my sources / reference material, so psds, rmfs, vocal stuff etc, so anyone who was curious as to what I'd done so far is more than welcome to scour it.

It looks great! But it seems that Gina's hologram isn't hologram at all. It doesn't glow.

Hey Tetsu0, I've downloaded your map and found some more oversights:
-The ladder and doors in the suit charger room are inproperly textured;
-The rubbish bin looks a bit too big.

Thanks for the comments. Unfortunately what's done is done and i didn't have the time to check for such details.

I'm a terrible procrastinator and the majority of this work was completed over the last 3 weeks.

Your map plays fine and architecture is very interesting. I'm sure that you will at least get silver for both the architecture and the idea. Those oversights aren't much of a problem. I might test some of your projects in future as I have more than enough time for it.

Competition was closed on 1st of April. Results will never be posted because the compo was actually an April fools joke
It was also a ruse to get people to upload maps to the map vault, therefore helping the sites meta which boosted its Google analytic ranking and therefore produced more ad revenue, which goes to the admins.

Who are also the judges of the competition?

Ohhhhh COINCIDENCE!!!?!?!?

Forever to be known as the lost compo, both judges along with all their notes were lost in a horrific moonshine fire. Since we can now never hope to know which winners the judges would've picked, plaese send all prize to:

Hi Dario,

Huge fan of your work. I just thought you should know that the 15-year-old mapping website TWHL hosted a recent competition entitled "Half-Life Re-imagined" wherein the competitors were tasked with recreating a favourite classic map from HL with a notable twist.

Almost across the board all entries were based on Crossfire (including my own) and it was so cool to see the love that the community still has for that map.

You created one of the most iconic deathmatch maps of all time, and approaching its 20-year anniversary people still adore it.

Hell yeah, Dario. Hell yeah.

Thanks so much for your time and for the countless hours of fragging,
James Archibald

Hi James,

Thanks for your kind words about Crossfire - that map was so much fun to develop and play! It was my first attempt at a team deathmatch map, when the game didn't organize people into teams, but if people wanted to play together to secure the bunker, they could.

I'm humbled and grateful that the map still gets attention and play some almost 20 years later!

I took a look at your re-imagining of Crossfire and it brought back some great memories! You kept faithful to the original feel of the map and it looks clean and well built, nice job!

Best of luck in all your mapping adventures going forward!

Dario

Neat. Were there really that many Crossfire-inspired maps? Thinking back on it, I guess there were...

Well mine wasn't, and Jessies wasn't... But other than that off the top of my head I can't remember who else's wasn't!

Cool you got a hold of Dario though, Arch!

To be honest, I wanted to participate too. But my SP-map was terrible and since I was new to this site I didn't know that the competition deadline will be extended. So I just abandoned that project.

I worked on test chamber, and then on "On a rail" dm level, haven't got to actually do anything worth submitting though.

It seems that basing my remaster on a forgettable original map has made it also forgettable... Is that a point in my favour? tongue - :P
