2014 Christmas mapping contest
« on: October 19, 2014, 02:59:20 PM »
The best christmas-themed map will win the contest. Note that the winning map will only be loaded permanently in December and January.

Apart of the prizes for the winner, each participant will get 7 days of free VIP, conditioning their map is decent enough. VIP rewards can be ended sooner if the VIP commands are being misused or if rules are broken too often.

To increase your chances of winning, pay attention to originality, precision, realistic look, details, no bugs, ... Keep in mind the map might need to be relocated to the spawn point (this will be done by admins) which is a flat surface, so try to avoid mapping on a slope.

The maximum amount of objects is 198. It is allowed to use objects added by SA-MP (0.3c, 0.3d, 0.3e, 0.3x or 0.3z objects) but recommended not to use them. Extensive use of these objects will decrease chances of winning.

To participate simply reply in this topic with the map name, or send the map name in a PM to me. Participating with more than one map is allowed. Feel free to post images and talk about what you're making in this topic.

The deadline is December 10.


Good luck!

B, you have to clarify, the map is permanent for the christmas period, else people would think the map will be there forever

Update: new prize is an admin trial of a few hours, which is a great opportunity for the winner to show his/her responsibility as admin and can lead to a faster permanent promotion later.

Because it is not allowed to create objects in the spawn area, there is now an identical mapped copy of the spawn area (far away from the real spawn area so creating objects is possible) that participants can use to create their christmas map on. This way it is possible to use the environment of the spawn area in the map, for example by adding decorations in trees or on the xMovie sign. Since the winning map will be relocated to the spawn area and stay there around christmas, using the environment can be a nice addition.



There are several copies of this mapped spawn so multiple people can use them at the same time in different worlds. The names are 'spwn', 'spwn2', 'spwn3', etc. The password is 'spawn' for each of these. Make sure you create the objects of your map on your own map and not on one of these spawn maps by accident.

For people who already started making their map elsewhere and would like to use this mapped spawn, I'm willing to make a copy of what they already made and move it to the mapped spawn. It's also possible to split your map in two, so you can have one part in the mapped spawn and leave the other part where-ever it is now.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Cool! Would you be able to copy my "xmasert1" map to spwn2(whatever) map, so I would edit it little?
