A new mini competition is a go! As the brief states, your goal is to make a singleplayer map that focuses on a theme: Ascension.

As this is a mini competition, you must manage your time effectively. Don't bite off more than you can chew, and leave plenty of time for testing. Good luck and have fun!

Does this have to be a brand new map (never released before) or can we use content we've released before?

Brand new please. Wouldn't be fair otherwise.

Very excited. Have an idea in my head that I've wanted to try for ages. Does it strictly have to be HL1 / Source or is something like Sven Coop applicable?

The competition refers to "the" player in singular, so I'm guessing that only singleplayer games in the Valve universe are allowed.

But best to wait for an official confirmation from Urby. Something worth a note and he confirmed that to me directly on Discord: Counter-Strike: Condition Zero - Deleted Scenes is forbidden.

Can the entry be made of multiple maps?

I would say base games only, given the rules regarding custom code.
Can the entry be made of multiple maps?
Absolutely.

Cool, think I can still do what I was planning. Makes sense!

It's been ages since I've last used Hammer, but this sounds like a good excuse to get back into it...and of course, it helps that I also happen to like this competition's theme.

Maybe I'll add an entry of my own!

Here, 2kliksphilip got involved in judging a map competition back on RunThinkShootLive. Might be worth giving him a shout to raise some awareness?

Time to see if I can muster up the motivation to reboot and retrofit the idea I had for your descending thing.

(I lost the file a while ago, unfortunately.)

(Not that it was likely to be very good, IIRC.)

What does "community vote" actually entail? This seems like one of the only compos so far sans judges

Phillip always used to include a "don't post your entry anyplace else for a month following the contest" rule, does anything similar apply here?

No, it's your content - it belongs to you and you can do whatever you like with it.

Hello Community! I have ascended. I think coming back to the community with a fine piece of singleplayer map packing would be capital! :crowbar:

I'm trying my best not to linger on details and to try and get a working skeleton of my map(s) before I pretty them up. Y'know, after I've successfully opened Sledge, which is usually a whole separate challenge.

We're almost at the half way point. Happy to see a bunch of you showing progress and I'm aware that others are working but keeping it to themselves. :D

Welp.... one area mostly complete and playable... I think I'll have to cut down the amount of areas I was going to build a little...
