Keep in mind that this is an opportunity to get your work published in a proper title. If you don't have much or any industry experience, you know how critical that first game is in terms of job requirements etc.

Yes the timespan is short. So go for it, there might not be as much competition.

Possible that it will get extended but that's not me to decide. And keep in mind the map doesn't have to be finished in every regard. The winning map just needs to be better then all the other maps.

I don't know how other map contests have handled it but isn't it the norm that winning maps will see more polish and optimizations afterwards before they get released as an official map?

I haven't organized the contest or ever participted in one but my guess would be that some legal documents will be signed to switch ownership of the intellectual property and then it's up to us to get the map through QA should that be necessary. Or who knows maybe someone will even land a proper job.

I cannot stress this enough. There are plenty of talented folks sort of inside/outside the industry posting on these forums. You may be waiting for an opportunity, you may have assumed it won't happen. I know a few of you I have in mind as I say this, who are perfectly capable mappers. If you know the Source engine, you must see this as an opportunity worth seizing.

 

and I'm talking about beyond $1,000 and all of the additional prizes. I'm talking about a gig, a resume piece, the knowledge that you won a contest. Many of you should start work right away. *uncle sam pointing at you*

 

Insurgency is a great team. Kikette and the rest of the team created some EXCELLENT assets, and maps to learn from. Carpe Diem.

Heroic words. I expect to see this on a motivational poster in cs_office.

I actually had a few minutes to spare and drew up a pretty scalable layout that probably supports most of their gamemodes in a single map.. I doubt i'll have the time for this since so many stuff is on hold, but I purchased the game to take a look. Who knows.
