Create a map from the above template!

Happy 2022!
The goal is to create the coolest bridge to allow players to traverse the gap across the canyon.
Any goldsource game is permittable, and any HLDM entries will be added to the HLDM server.

There are no limitations on setting, style or design - be as farfetched and creative as you want, or perhaps you'd rather make something based more in reality.
  • Engine: Goldsource
  • Game: Any
  • Restrictions:
    • The player must be able to traverse the canyon without cheats.
    • The bridge does not have to go over the gap.
    • The bridge can be in any theme or setting & does not necessarily have to look like a bridge as we know it.
    • You may widen or contract the canyon as needed to suit a variety of bridge designs.
  • Can I modify the template map? Absolutely. I encourage you to create a unique setting for your bridge. Add details and buildings on either side of the canyon! Change textures, change lighting!
  • Can I use custom textures? Absolutely.
  • That's not how you make cliffs. These cliffs suck: Remake them.
  • Can I submit a minimod? I mean... Sure, I guess?
  • Deadline: April 1 2022
  • Prize: £30 Steam voucher
  • Judges: Jessie will Stream the entries (she has not agreed to this) and then some Australians on Discord will briefly stop swimming in lager to decide a winner. The judges' criteria for what makes a bridge 'cool' is entirely subjective.
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
