Good luck getting entries.
also posting on some other forums.
ps. havent you got any exams? man, i wish i had a job right now. fuck the washing and ironing and cleaning when you get home. just play and watch videos after work every day.
mmm, i`ll be a good house-husband!
Well, I made mine with these really cool twisted bars, but I only had 4 brushes left for the rest of the map...
Nope Im not in college yet, just working.
/me Has College Finals Too
I would love to participate, if I could map for crap.
This sounds like an interesting theme though. I`m looking forward to the results.
...like nonny said... it would be tough to make a convincing jail with bars... unless its all forcefields(clip brushes)... heh..
the brush limit makes sticking to a theme very unappealing.
howabout ... 20 monster limit for best combat sequence. ?
your not still sour from the Natural Terrain contest, are ya, Shambler? :)
If you dont want to participate because you loathe contests/the idea, then how about a nice warm cup of STFU! ;)
Anyway,.. I meant that lightly - I respect you all. Hmm.. Im not saying you have to use bars for the cells, it was merely an example.
And frankly I dont give a shite if no one participates - cause I understand. But I thought I would try. *shrug*
I Actually Like
blackpoe`s idea, limited monster count for most enjoyable experience. 20`s not enough though, how about 30-40 so we also get some decent sized maps?
- jail setting
- goal: escape from jail
- the jail itself does NOT have to be typical bar cell jail (as stated before but this seems to have been confused from the *example*, sorry)
- 200 brush limit
- 40 maximum monsters
- player must start within their cell - the way out may already be there, OR the player may have to find a way out
Basic Clip Brush Forcefield
And a stone in back that can be pushed out. Several triggers surround a func_train. The train has 20 or so waypoints in a line, and waits at each one to be retriggered. The effect is, as you keep on pushing (and touching more triggers), the block keeps moving, so it`s like you`re pushing the block out of the way.
Find an axe or shotgun, and you`re home free. Or on your way anyway.
If only I were good enough to do the rest of the map. ;)
the problem with that is it needs custom progs. stock quake qc doesn't supported 'stop+wait for retrigger' trains.
I thought trains would stop at a waypoint that had a wait value. *shrugs*
they will wait, but they won't wait for a retrigger.
the hipents do have that ability though...
My post was merely making the point that you souldn`t impose lots of different restrictions, (eg, monster limit AND brush limit AND theme).
Which applies even more now that you`ve added ANOTHER restriction to the contest (although I do think limited monsters would make a good contest).
Give It A Try ...
Count me in if this is still on. Getting back to mapping so this is a good exercise. Any others in for submissions?
nevermind its off
You are unstable.
Like a tau lepton.
