Good luck to everyone who enters!

Money is too tight to get the game for me to map for it on my end, so I'll stick with my other projects for now.

HO AY !

 

Any kind of topics somewhere about DoI mapping basics ?

As well as LATTEH's response there is also a brief guide written by the folk at NWI on how to get started with mapping for DoI.  It can be viewed either here on GameBanana or here on NWI's website.

I'm sure there will also be a whole bunch of help threads and discussions popping up here and on GB / the NWI forums once people start mapping.

What are the rules on remaking older DoD maps?

Rule 2: Remakes of existing maps are not allowed, however maps inspired by classic DoD maps are encouraged.

Basically you can make maps based on or inspired by a DoD map, but no like-for-like copies.

Just a great opportunity here for people, you can remake DoD:S maps, or do your own thing, win stuff, get a portfolio item, your map in the game, etc. Excited to see what you guys cook up :D

Literally says in rule 2 that you can not make a remake.

Great new initiative! DoD is my all time fave shooter.

Would be cool to see the game discounted or get a discount code for participants. Not that it's very expensive, but with unreliable internet and little time I'm not playing MP games…
