You asked for it so here it is. A new mini-competition courtesy of yours truly. Something to do while the entire world is on lockdown...

You've got a little bit more time for this one, (eight weeks from right now) with the chance of it being extended further if the need arises.

In this competition, no. I would prefer if maps were strictly single-player for the sake of the community vote.

People are actually mapping for this, right? I feel like this one has been pretty quiet so far!

I've been trundling away in the background and have been posting wee bits in the WIP section in discord. There's definitely a couple of other people working on this as well from what I can tell

This is actually one I would have loved to make a map or series of maps for myself. Likely would have gone for a mini-mod starring a uniquely skinned and fully voiced Barney, but there is no way I have time for that. Maybe I will revisit the idea once The Core is out of my life.

Yeah, what am I doing here all of a sudden? :confused:

I have been lurking a bit here recently though. Did some work for the teleportation competition a while ago, and later for TWHL Tower 2, but I didn't have enough inspiration for the first, and ran into some technical issues for the second. But this time I've got a clear picture of what I want to make, so I felt I was ready to post something.

Here's a work-in-progress screenshot:

I'm going for a high-tech test environment style. The main room here is mostly done in terms of layout and coloring. Next step is to create a few additional rooms, then some scripting to get the main gameplay up and running. Then it's time for lighting and texture improvements, and maybe some finer details, depending on how much time I've got left.

Well, it's good to have you back. That's looking like a pretty solid foundation so far. :D

Hi , i was wondering if it is ok to submit a map for HL:S. My friend wants to join this competition but only has HL:S

I have no issues with that. It simply wasn't in the checklist of games I could select when setting up the competition.

the "best" one for such a championat : seems to be decay... sadly the authors are hiding with their codes ...
i joke .. but i hope you will publish the source code .. because in my giant mod : i plan to use the "dual player" system as a friend or as an enemy .. i mean with a giant xen battle with the king-pin and the not very famous tor [from sovietscccp mod]
i also plan to make the "heart of evil mod : hearts of evil " with the barney becoming the second player or staying a bot ..
will you ask or publish some source for hl to do that ? coop for 2 or 4 or 6 or 8 ... and sometimes 1 or more against 1 or more..

Really excited for this. I only saw the competition was up yesterday so my entry might feel a bit rushed :(

Quick question regarding the rules; one of them was that no vanilla content must be overwritten.

If I submit as a mini-mod with some custom animations for certain stock HL characters and enemies, is that acceptable? Technically nothing is altered about the vanilla models on one's hard drive if it's done that way, as far as I know.

you can use custom models as much as you want if you place the model in the subfolder model , you make it as a mod with a liblist.gam and the steamappid.txt ... plus your map in the map folder..

the "root" of the file is here :

after a hl update with 70 for valve folder as main after mod : so the dlls loaded
if you use 50 : then loaded dlls are those from opposing force...
same with cs or dmc ... that is not bad but killed a lot of mod not having it..

here is another new file that will apply to hl sooner or later :
xash3d is generating it...

Indeed, as the rule says, mini-mods are a-ok. Overwriting /valve content is not. :)

Think I've got everything sorted so it works with no overwriting. Pleased with this! Thanks for the help guys.

Also great that I now know how to package mods, exciting stuff :)
