Not only is that idea awesome, I could still work on The Core while I entered it! So, it's... double awesome. Aweawesomesome.

Not sure if TWHL can handle TWO competitions. It might explode.

There's nothing saying we can't start or own compo aside from the Mods and Judges.
Even a community project.
Things just need to be well organized and people actually need to dedicate time.

I love this site and the compos, and it's a real shame to see the compos fail to get judged on time - but people have lives and responsibilities.

There's a community project just getting off the ground if you would like to contribute toward something in the meantime.

I'll willingly host a contest~! I do it all the time so its not really a hassle and I'm good a keeping shite on schedule.
I'd just need to know whether you guys like prizes and stuff, and if so what type of stuff? Also, would need help judging (since I'm not exactly the all knowing mapping extrodinary, and I would probably be judging on whether it looks good and plays nicely), but that would be easy I'd get Scotch to help me and anyone else that would like to assist but not compete.

Hell, I'd be willing to organise monthly contests if you guys were interested. XD

I prefer a long time to work on submissions, at least 2 months.
Posted 7 years ago2013-08-17 07:23:56 UTC Post #315013
Can think about the time frame if people are interested. XD

So.... Are people interested?
Posted 7 years ago2013-08-17 07:52:12 UTC Post #315014
I'll be interested in December.
Posted 7 years ago2013-09-13 02:59:49 UTC Post #315683
It's time for the obligatory once a month question:

So is this contest dead?
Posted 7 years ago2013-09-15 10:14:51 UTC Post #315715
I say it's been so long, why not reopen/relaunch the contest to New contenders for 1 month, and then have an official judging and prizes, no matter what?

This give peeps a second chance to join, and those who already entered time to further polish their entries. (win-win)

and den after that, we should seriously have structured and regular contests like we used to.

if there is no official prizes, I would(and I'm sure others) be willing to donate. We could also. Accept "mystery gifts" like we are trying to do with the minicontest.

Grim was trying to recover some "lost" compo entries (dead uploads) by sending PM's to the users, however I haven't heard from him since. I think he's just way too busy to sort it out, so your idea sounds pretty good, CapT.

Edit: And done. Sorry for the delay everyone, and thanks for being so persistent :)

Did Grim get my entry? It should be the best map of the lot. Top notch map, really good stuff.

JK I didn't make one.

Anyone feel we should start allowing for team submissions, or rather keep it traditional?

Solely based on the fact that a new competition was started.

I used to do these things for fun, we'll see. Don't want to offend anyone who's been appropriately participating...

Trempler, your name says it all hehe. Sorry to hear if you had any hardships to deal with, hope you still enter. Pst, let us know so we know how hard to try. ;)

Ninja you're third screenie showed some cool architecture and texturing.

Moaby, whoa that was looking awesome, I wonder how it looks now. Have you made any progress since?

Rimrook, your entry was looking astounding. I love the design and texturing. I really hope you do something with this!

Docrock, large scale is one thing you sure know, looking awesome. I hope you've been working on it.

Doodle, pretty sure i'll have to play through that one! I'm curious if the gears move :glad:

Lajron, nice name hehe. Cool clean design.

Tetsuo, did yours end up turning out like the sketches?

Kraken, looks great especially with those bleeding textures added ;) . It would make for some nice cs gameplayage.

Urby I agree that most twhl members probably don't map anymore. I myself had to reinstall hammer for the purpose of this competition. Being a website based on level design i'm sure most designers/ developers here will never completely lose similar interest.

Captain, sounds like myself in many ways ;) . I've began editing and assembling textures so far.

...now I look back at it, I could improve it so much. The tiling textures and rather smooth displacements didn't give my entry much credit. Pretty half-arsed, but I cut corners for the deadline. I'll stick with this as my entry even though I NOW have more or extra time, depending on how you look at it.

Looks really cool Moaby! Seems like it would be a lot of fun to play, and those waterfalls are epic.

Cool Captain, can't wait to see! I will be merging the natural land masses with man/alien made architecture.
Posted 7 years ago2013-09-22 02:39:03 UTC Post #315855
Thanks Zeeba, but they were my first attempts at making textures from scratch, they aren't terrible, they tile well, but they don't look that good. Next time I'll try digital photos or something.

Also not sure I'll do an update for my map. I did PM it late to grim but its also in the vault. If I update it, I will submit it through the competition and probably PM you Pb just to be on the safe side.

edit: Is Ant actually judging?
Posted 7 years ago2013-09-28 04:41:57 UTC Post #315972
Time for forward thinking on these contests. Need to start a Halloween themed contest now, then a Christmas themed map right after that.

maybe even just judge based on screen shots to get people practicing portfolio scenes instead of full on maps. Its a lot easier to get 1 angle looking pimp, than to worry about a full on map.

Just my $0.02

^^ what Don said. I can't fathom twhl never did a halloween coop/compo!

While i'd love to do a twhl halloween coop, i think it would be a mistake to postpone C33 any longer....

BUT, maybe we can still pull some sort of Halloween project off? Perhaps rescue Alberto's coop? Something small and manageable of course!

I nominate Don to manage it whatever we do ;)

Glad to hear, keep up the work. I've neglected reality the past two days.

Sneak peek, err this vm!

Testing stuff video

Had to test making floating islands hollow so gauss wouldn't reflect and kill you. Also tested hollow floating chuncks that you can actually go in.

I also remade my door from radcore for the map and tested some other iris doors including but not shown the hexagonal iris door from Metroid prime. It worked great in single player but glitches in multiplayer so I couldn't use it.
Posted 6 years ago2013-10-03 06:36:19 UTC Post #316065
Even your tests are awesome and promising, zeeba. We shouldn't be letting you in here :P

And what? No Sledge?
Posted 6 years ago2013-10-03 09:34:47 UTC Post #316067
Zeeba that looks quite good. Don't know why I bother trying to keep lag down for multiplayer when I could just map for half-life.
Posted 6 years ago2013-10-03 16:00:40 UTC Post #316069
Thanks! More wips coming soon, anyone else want to share for inspiration?

I've checked out Doc Rock's entry so far and it is really nice. I'll post a review on it soon. I'll also have to check out the rest that are posted so far.

Whoa, that's amazing! Hehe you should have seen how I tried to pull off something similar in goldsource. What did you use to make it?

Your map is looking good so far too! The land masses have a very nice look to them.
