For the final challenge, we wanted something as open as possible but still quite defined. We have considered many previous challenges as potential options for this one but no particular one seemed right.
Therefore, we have decided that entrants can select ANY previous mapping competition/challenge from the past EXCEPT the previous 4 used in The Hammer Cup 2016.
Entrants may only select ONE theme for their map.
For those that are new to the site and think the challenges are a new thing, you might be surprised to learn that I have been running them since 2010.
In addition, to the 1 extra week, there are also three other obligatory requirements for this challenge.
1. ALL entrants MUST include a readme text file. The file MUST be called the entry’s name. For example, Outbreak-readme.txt. The file MUST include the author’s name and the theme chosen. It can also include any other information and credits etc.
2. Entrants MUST send a image that will be used as the background image, chapter image and Steam gridview image. No HUD or weapons should be visible. Separate images for each use can be sent if the author wishes.
3. Any files sent MUST be named after the entry’s name plus the suffix: “thc16-c5”. For example, “Outbreak-thc16-c5.7z”. Do NOT use something like AnyVilleVille.7z”.
Ideally, a map would end with a fade to black and screen text displaying the map name, author and theme name, but this is not compulsory.
The judges will be looking for a clever and surprising interpretation of the chosen theme. That doesn’t mean we hope for or expect strange entries, just that we have already played maps with that theme so you will have to do something special.
As always, quality over quantity is valued, so plan very carefully and make sure you allocate enough time for external testing.
That’s it. Good luck to all entrants!

Rob Martens for converting my intro video into .bik format.
Ten gridview icons are included in this file. To use the included grid view icon, select “Gridview” in Steam (top right corner).
Right click on “AnyVilleVille” and select “Set Custom Image”.
Then browse to the SourceMods folder and then to AnyVilleVille/steam-gridview-icons folder and select the image. Then click “Set Image” and that’s it.
Of course, you can create your own custom image if you prefer.
