It’s time to think about the next mapping competition.
Those are IN ADDITION to any prize I give AND there may be some other smaller prizes too.
So, with all that in mind, it’s time to select the next theme.
Before I discuss the possible choices, I need to make it clear that I will be making the final decision and the vote below is for my information only.
90% of voters will be players and what players want to play is not necessarily what mappers want to make.
The details below are just guidelines and once a theme has been chosen, a proper project website will be created with all the details.
The purpose of this theme is to create a map that somehow surprises the player. of course, there must be combat in it, but it’s all about the surprise.
Create a map where the player is ambushed. Yes, it’s very obvious but it’s never what you do, but how you do it.
I love the crossbow and wish there were more maps that used it. I want long distance combat that requires skill and timing. Of course, a little in-your-face fun is always welcome.
Create a map where the player is on a suicide mission.
Create a map where there is only one enemy. There could be headcrabs, antlions and other non-intelligent enemies, but this is all about finding and killing one humanoid enemy. They may not even be able to fight back.
Create a map which is essentially a Boss map. A little lead in is needed, but the main part is the Boss.
I am sure you have your own ideas, so please use the “OTHER” option and make sure you comment on what it is, so that other readers can see it too.
