Within a day or so of each other, both our long-awaited Source server, and a suprise HLDM server, have both become available. MuzzleFlash is the owner of the HLDM server, which he has kindly made public. He even put "TWHL" in the name so you can't miss it. Have a look at the details.

TheBlackViper is, in turn, just finishing work on the Source server, which will be playing CS:S, HL2DM, and other games. Its details are here.

Both server owners are, of course, accepting map submissions from TWHL members! Take the opportunity to playtest your map with your forum buddies and get some real-time feedback.

There's a little community competition for a Map Vault Award going on at the moment to try and get people more active in the 'Vault. All you have to do is write some good reviews before Christmas. Have a look at the forum thread for more information.

I've added a little checkbox to toggle the forum indicator key and (new) forum descriptions being shown. Go and have a look.

Beta versions of the ZHLT for 64-bit OSes are now freely available at the official site. Along with the 64-bit build there is a nice addition for those who map for Spirit, with Cpt_Andrew adding an env_sky fix to the code.

Along with the little avatars, people with small screens will now be shown fewer posts per page in the forums and similar.

Now the "big screen" checkbox in one's profile determines whether the reduced-size avatars are used on the forums next to peoples' posts. Nice, I hope.

Kasperg has now started our second Source competition, Transport Hub. Since it's a bit bigger than usual, you have seven weeks. Now, get started!

I've posted the results of the first Source competition properly now. It closed in September, but I had to wait until there were no competitions running to add it. Kasperg, Rabid and Cpl1nsane will now have nice trophies in their profiles.

Respected development community 3D Buzz have released a series of video tutorials regarding the basics of Source mapping. Certainly a good thing for any of you late to jump on the bandwagon and looking to get started.

Sorry for this bit of unrelated news, but for all the Aussies here, I'm sure you're all incredibly happy, but for those who don't know what's going on, I shall explain.

Australia defeated Uruquay last night thus securing our place in the Fifa World Cup! Australia has not been in the Cup for 31 years, so this is an extremly big deal for our country.

Congratulations to the Socceroos!

The results for competition seventeen, The Test Chamber, have been posted. The next competition will be here in the next few weeks... it may be the first proper official Source one, too.
