Christmas Mapping Contest 2013
« on: October 27, 2013, 09:08:55 PM »
Santa is on the way and he's expecting to see a nice map dedicated to christmas in our server again. The contest for this map is similar to the ones of the last few years.



The objective is to make the best christmas themed map, the winning map will be permanently loaded at the spawn point around christmas and the creator will get 2 months of free VIP status (suggestions for more prizes are welcome). Each participant will get 3 days of free VIP, conditioning the map is decent and not a cheap attempt to get these 3 days.

Participants will need to make the map somewhere else because mapping at the spawnpoint is forbidden, so the winning map will be copied and moved to the spawnpoint afterwards. Therefore it's important to make the map on a flat surface similar to the spawn place.

A few criteria important for the map are originality, precision (avoiding objects floating above the ground when they're supposed to lay on the ground for example), realism, detail (not just a large tree with 5 decorating balls in it for example), ...

The maximum amount of objects is 198. It is forbidden to use 0.3c, 0.3d, 0.3e or 0.3x objects since they make it too easy to make christmas related maps.

If you want to participate, reply in this topic with the map name, or send the map name in a PM to me. Feel free to post images and talk about what you're making in this topic.
Entries must be submitted December 10 at last. This announcement of the contest is made earlier than last year so this should give enough time.

For inspiration, this is last year's winning map by MaddMouse:



And on this page you can see pictures of the other maps from last year:

Keep in mind that just because they didn't win doesn't mean they aren't good, many of them are in fact really good, so you can use them as an inspiration aswell.

Good luck!
