For this mapping challenge, I would like you to create a map that is set in and around the streets of a city.
It doesn’t mean you have to stay ON the streets all the time. You can go under or over them, you can drive through parts too if you wish. There could be plenty going on, with Rebels around you or a dark and atmospheric setting.
The player could work their way through destroyed buildings or fight on pristine streets.
It’s your decision.
I was late announcing this challenge, so I have extended the deadline by one day.
The deadline for submitting maps is:
The deadline is now 11am GMT Tuesday 17th February
MAke the streets look real. Don’t just leave them empty of strange corners etc. It’s better to create a smaller, but polished area than a large unfinished map.
I highly recommend The Beta Testers Collective.
But since it is holiday time, please make sure you give them plenty of time to test.
Of course, you can get anybody you want to test your maps, but the BTC are very good at it and provide excellent feedback.
