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.

Congratulations to Captain P, Daubster and MuzzleFlash, who are all now Map Vault moderators. They'll be tidying things up a little: moving things into the right categories, fixing mod icons, and moderating comments. Well done guys, and thanks to everyone who also offered.

I've finally fixed the map editing bug whereby the "mod" field reset to "HL" every time one edited the details.

If you find any more bugs, please, let me know!

Would you like to be a Map Vault moderator? Have a look here. Applicants should be responsible and helpful.

Competition sixteen has now closed and is being judged by MuzzleFlash and I.
