I don't know how to make a DM map, I only just know how to make an SP map (one that can't be shown in the custom level list)

Actually this contest has officially ended, so you still can post it if you want, but it won't be judged unfortunately.

In NFO, just change MAP_TYPE="DM;"
And use Spawn Marker entities instead of Chapter Info

BUMP

Hey I got a new idea for a new contest, but I don't want to make a new thread (yet). How about "Making one page of comic with Sed2" contest?

My chance to do some tedious damage here *presses the ultimate "I win" button and kills himself out of joy*

Nah, that's too selfish. I'd be interested in seeing what we could bring up with this contest

How about a one panel comic? Try to use speech and the like and try to make it as funny as possible (And also since it's only one panel, make it make sense)

Edit: Umm...maybe something like this (But better obviously, this was just a quickie)

Wow, looks like the idea attracts many people after all. I though of that last week actually, but I don't know how interesting it is going to be. Looks like I should have posted earlier.. :/

We could host a new "Talent Show" contest, where people could show off their best skills in particular things. Like, if person thinks he/she does terrains very well, they can make a beautiful terrain, if person does cool enemy models, he/she could show that

Oh, and EDIT:

Sounds too selfish. "I'm best at making terrains. And models. And everything."

No, I'm not
You're making me to be self-confident which causes total letdown after some days.
Say that I'm bad and only then i will maybe produce good stuff

You're best at creating fantasy atmoshpere and combining CT's models

You can create realistic look, especially on water (as I've seen so far).
You have many great ideas, but also you're too lazy to incarnate them

You also have a v. good imagination of fantasy architecture

Not really. Like F1NLAND (sometimes), I can lose inspiration to continue something.....only I'm more likely to do so

Like F1NLAND, you can combine CT's models very well. You can do amazing terrains. You have many creative ideas and can make map's atmosphere like you'd play it beeing 'on weed' (that's about Simple Terrain Contest's map )
Still, you're a medieval lover, but I can't remember medieval-themed map from you

1. Thanks
2. Why "on beeing weed"
3. The fact is, that medieval stuff is very hard to model if you want it to look authentic. And I do want to let it look authentic. An authentic armor (more authentic than in Oblivion for example) will probably need over 10.000 polygons, because of the ornaments, and doing with less polys but with bump maps is impossible, or you want to let the armor look like shit. Also, there are lots of reflections and refractions needed and

Take the armor from my avatar for example. Looks easy to model, but don't forget the plates and the fine ornaments there. And make them round, not cuby. Hard to model. Takes at least 3 or 4 weeks.

And a map? Well, first I'll release "Warped Planet" (formerly known as Strange Town Part 2), then I have to release "Serious Town" (working title) and at least I have to get spoon uploaded my "Ancient Land" Deathmatch map which will probably take days to get uploaded

Whops, sorry, that was F1NLAND's map
but everything else is correct

Oblivion, hmm.. Details are usually made using parralax mapping, so when you see an uber high detailed room in oblivion, usually it's nothing more than just 200 polys room with polybump shaders (parallax mapping) for textures

So, as I said. You have many creative ideas, you just needto put the up correctly. Arrange shadows in ST2, make it more precise. You use many details, but lightning atmosphere is the leak.
I will try to redesign one arena from ST2 to show what i'm thinking about, ok?

Feel free to do it, but it the name has changed to "Warped Planet", hits the level much better than "strange town part 2".
