Time for a new competition: Bridge the gap
Create a map from the above template!
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
Too bad that I don't map anymore, and my son has taken up soccer and chess as his passion. He does know his way around Hammer though.
Was the deadline moved or is the countdown bugging?
I wouldn't want to miss it on the account that I may have more time.
The competition page is correct.
On a more serious matter, are w_polys taken into account in the ruling? Because let's face it, big open spaces like this can only be optimized so much and I like my maps to be pretty.
After hours of optimization i went down from a max of over 5000 to slightly under 4000 but going lower is flat impossible.
Bless the func_detail though.
Good luck to all the participants and I hope everyone gets to have some fun.
