Dm_overflow Officially Released
Although I guess all the people here who give a shit have already played it, here's a formal news post proclaiming the release of my first (and probably last) foray into both Source mapping and Deathmatch mapping.

dm_overflow :
AKA New Odessa Overflow Monitor
AKA Lube Rymdpromenad och Klumpesnusk

Best suited for 2-4 players, all depending on how frantic you like your action. This map is more centered around gunplay, rather than mindlessly flicking physobjects around with the gravgun.

A boat lies stranded in a dried up dock, whose walls are blown away to provide access to a warehouse situated right next to it. Outside the warehouse a broken old jetty overlooks the overflow chutes of a crumbling hydroelectric dam, a place where the combine have set up a small monitor station in case any citizens should ever emerge from the dam's pipe system. Mysteriously, a simple teleport device has been rigged up inside the lock... IT IS A MYSTERY!

PLEASE ENJOY OKAY THANKS

In other news, I've now moved my website from planetquake over to spawnpoint.org. I've also split it up into a quake section and a hl2 section, just to keep things clean:

Nice 
It's a good looking one and I really love small maps. If we could have a three-four player game the level would simply rock. The skybox is very moody ;) 
 
We've had several 2v2s on it and it is quite fun. Big fights tend to end up in the area you teleport to, but probably because that's where I hover around and those are the only fights I see. 
Other Opinions? 
Game crossovers have been stuck in my head ever since Duke Nukem said, "i ain't afraid of no Quake".

I can easily picture the Quake ogre's first appearance in HL2. Cutscene fades in to a HL2 policeman standing with his back to a shadowcast archway. Out comes the orgre; lumbering silently from the darkness, grabbing a hold of the cop, then pulling his head messily from the shoulders.

Fade back to our player. Run!... it's time to find a bigger gun. 
Uh 
what 
DOH 
Never mind, it is a ridiculus subject to bring up... intellectual property and all that... 
 
The map's screenshot looks like a real pile of junk czg. jeez 
 
test 
So.... 
The contest winners were released...

1. Underpass - yawn snore. Well made but a tedious mostly-corridor fest lacking in inspiration.

2. Resistance - apart from being almost entirely 2D gameplay-wise, this is a pretty neat seeming map, it certainly has a distinctive feel to it. Looks like the gameplay could get old though.

3. Powerhouse - looks very good, seems to have a good complex layout, and a strong original style too. But in the grand HL2DM tradition, it is incomprehensibly vast. Still for a huge map it looks pretty top.

I'd probably put the order as:

1= Overflow
1= Powerhouse
3. Resistance

As a matter of genuine perception of the quality, although I haven't played the winning maps yet. Doesn't take a genius to see something has 2D gameplay tho... 
I Was Surprised By The Results 
I think valve values looks and novelty value more over good solid gameplay (of course, I'm not saying overflow looks bad either.)

They just wanted more maps with toilets and silly traps that looked as pretty as can be :(
