AscentVille – 24-Hour Map Labs Atom #6 Mapping Challenge Announcement

13th March 2021

A brand new Ville theme! Did you ever think you’d see the day?

AscentVille was a never-used idea back in the Hammer Cup days. Finally, it gets to see the light as the first challenge in the Map Labs Atom Week, starting now!

This challenge only runs 24 hours – maps are due 10pm Central U.S. Time tomorrow – Monday, March 15th. Get mapping!

Bonus maps (which can’t win but are judged and scored) are accepted until 3 days after the end of Atom Week (March 24th).

Theme Details

Simple: make a map about climbing or ascending! This was an old idea for a full Hammer Cup Ville challenge years ago, but of course never came to pass. I’m glad it can live on in a Map Labs Atom.

Here’s the official announcement (click for full version):

  1. Ha, good discussion…I can’t find a way to post anything on any of the threads over there…it’s all blocked off..

      You simply have to message the moderators, read the message in the #new-members channel for more info.

  2. Looking forward to this. 24 hours doesn’t seem like much time though, so it might affect the quality of the entries.

    1. I had the same thought, why the speed, what’s the point? It only hurts the quality, as shown by previous short contests.

  3. Just wondering when this will be ready for downloading?

      The Map Labs crew is hard at work on it, but it’ll still be some time before it’s all ready to release – their Atom Week is all packaged together into one mod.
