and a func minicompoToo used to typing entity names, huh?
If we ever do this again, I'll make a better base that's a little more open ended.I didn't mind the "closedness," but the brushwork made working with it a bit of a hassle.
the real purpose to do this contest is inspiring people to make maps, add togather mappers and have some FUN. I enjoyed it and thanks for making this kind of competitionI agree! I misunderstood the rules until it was too late so I thought some combat would spice things up
I just remember seeing Lajron's and thinking "Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit... I lost"This^
I don't think I saw crypt's entry though.It's alright.
I'm pretty much used to adding this much detail in my mapsHeh, after playing your map, now I understand what a truly detailed map can be... It's very inspiring actually to see what's possible in GS!
you're not supposed to extend the basemap by adding brushwork beyond it.That thought crossed my mind as well.
you may NOT change the geometry/brushwork, however, you are allowed to cut into existing geometry if you want to add a window, a trim or whatever, as long as the walls you're cutting into are not exposed to the void.A window that may lead to a skybox, or an untraversable section of the map that is only scenic? I had no problems seeing into new areas as long as the playable area didn't actually go beyond that. What I did have a minor qualm about was in CT's map where he added that small tunnel underneath that lead into the bottom of the house section of the base. The area could be explored and was annexed to the base. It could have been easily solved by blocking it off. I think it's been stated in base compos before that the basemap sorta defines a broad playable area, rather than set the exact confines of the map.
I have a really really interesting and crazy idea for one. If people are up for it, I can start preparing it.YES YES YES YES YES
So that would mean the next comp is most likely about sausages, poles and other dildo shaped objects?YES YES YES YES YES
Make something phallic from a very limited set of textures?FTFY.
Oh man, Rimrook's minicompo II idea is so... typically Rimrook. I think no one would even guess what it is.I bet it's something like Colours. Rimrook'd be predictable like that
