Elon: Nope. If there aren't enough maps to fill up the top three positions, then even a shitty map can get a trophy. I don't see why it should not be counted.

I should automatically get 3rd place despite having no entry, simply because I'm awesome.

No-one told me.

Kinda looks weird. I would've chosen a different one.

next time ill leave a file that describes the map bc it isnt even a base. If you get past one of the locked doors by jumping onto the double waterfall and onto the ledge, you can walk through some doors to a secret office that has a picture of big brother on a telescreen. The map is supposed to be a section of workspaces from the book 1984 but more futuristic.
Posted 12 years ago2007-03-27 09:03:28 UTC Post #217192
Maybe a custom sky with a rainbow would have looked better. I mean, when you see those New Mexico mountains you don't think about sprinkling rain.
:(

Congrats to all who won!

Question:

Who chooses the next compo?
Posted 12 years ago2007-03-27 18:20:09 UTC Post #217262
WTF? I downloaded Elon's and Hlifehothog's entries and the ZIP files contain a .TXT file with a link to the map.
Posted 12 years ago2007-03-27 18:25:49 UTC Post #217264
What the hell! I thought they were sepposed to link afterward to the map directly. Dave just copy the link and paste in your browser.

Yeah, I noticed that.

man thats wrong if you dont erase the part where it says " unfortunetly zeeba-G forgot to change the skybox. I mean cmmon "yea i forgot to change the entire sky but i didnt forget to put a small light at the bottom of the outside drain. I didnt forget to put drains connecting all of the water ways. I didnt forget to put a black texture on the inside of everydoor so that textures wouldnt overlap eachother. I didnt forget to put a stem growing from each lilly flower. but that big ol sky musta sneeked right passed meh.
Posted 12 years ago2007-03-28 09:37:03 UTC Post #217304
Yeah, but that is a pretty big slip up. Without clouds there is no rain.

Damnit! I was thinking about entering a Source map but thought I wouldn't make a trophy :(

I R enterin in teh next one.
Posted 12 years ago2007-03-28 15:39:03 UTC Post #217339
i gotta say i'm pretty miffed, especially since despite its shittyness, it would have got a third place placeholder...

How come it didn't get judged?

I didn't have anything to do with the judging, you understand. I just posted the results.

Once again:

Who chooses the next compo sir Monkey?
Posted 12 years ago2007-03-28 20:59:20 UTC Post #217377
whatever. anyways, i cant play hotdogs mod bc it crashes my hl everytime i do:(
Posted 12 years ago2007-03-28 23:01:09 UTC Post #217382
The Hunter: Your map didn't appear in the compo entries, that's why it wasn't judged. Don't attempt to belittle us, it's not our fault. We didn't just decide to ignore it you know.

Who chooses the next compo sir Monkey?
The winner of the gold trophy. :) I hoped I'll win, I have a neat idea for a compo.
Posted 12 years ago2007-03-29 07:49:23 UTC Post #217400
Well, the next compo won't be for a while, and we'll be doing something different for it.

Posted 12 years ago2007-03-29 08:16:50 UTC Post #217401
Word on the street is that the next compo won't be for a while and will be different.

I think i might enter this one.

ill enter next one and give my self more time, also im learning how to model so it might be to my advantage :)
Posted 12 years ago2007-03-29 08:52:14 UTC Post #217409
Yeah, modelling helps with compos and mods, but not individual maps. No one really likes to download a dozen models.

yea well id like to make a single player mod for half life but i wish i new how to or had someone that could code...
Posted 12 years ago2007-03-30 18:06:59 UTC Post #217541
had someone that could code...
Don't we all? A lot can be done without code, i'm managing to pull off on 6d without any code, except the ferret but that isn't done yet.

Using spirit also opens up the possibilities as well. Just be creative and resourceful, stuff happens.

Yeah nearly any entity work can be done without code, the problem is with costum weapons and AI. :| But finding coders that know how to code AI is difficult.

Posted 12 years ago2007-04-01 15:14:28 UTC Post #217670
i think that twhl needs to make more compos where someone makes a base map and then people customize it (map from base) because more people tend to enter in those i would.
Posted 12 years ago2007-04-01 15:20:17 UTC Post #217671
Don't forget that punctuation and commas now.
But yeah, that's a good idea, mapping from base = fun.
Posted 12 years ago2007-04-01 16:05:49 UTC Post #217675
Perhaps starting a vote or thread where people can discuss what sort of competition they want would result in a better turnout, especially regarding those measely two Source entries :quizzical:
Posted 12 years ago2007-04-01 21:11:10 UTC Post #217706
Mapping from base? Booo! I hate those, hardly any place for originality. Though I might try to enter one, could be a good practice in editing peoples maps, and making them my own! :)
Posted 12 years ago2007-04-01 21:16:48 UTC Post #217707
'Destructification' seemed to leave a lot of place for originality, as the entries showed.
Posted 12 years ago2007-04-01 21:45:02 UTC Post #217713
Not so much, I was still left with your layout! I wanted to make such big changes... It doesn't let you map as freely as you would have done without the base. :
Posted 12 years ago2007-04-01 22:33:26 UTC Post #217716
It's like saying a math test doesn't let you write beautiful literature... The contest was about who could make the best out of those 'numbers', not who could invent the best 'words'.
I thought "Orb" was very unique, and there were a lot of totally retextured versions. I will never understand the logic in your complaints. A competition is a competition, and you can always map freely on your own.
