The UnrealSP.Org 10th Anniversary Speedmapping Contest is now officially over (although entries will still be accepted today)! Stay tuned for news on the judging and compiling. Thanks for participating!
____________________________________________________
Downloads of all entries should be posted before the deadline, 16th of June 2011. Visit the rules thread for detailed instructions on how to release your contest entry.
____________________________________________________
The contest period has been extended until the 16th of June, 2011. Mappers have an additional two weeks at their disposal! Make the most of it!
____________________________________________________
It's getting critical. Two weeks of contest time remain and the contest sees the first cancelled project due to Qtit's busy schedule. Will you make it to the finishing line?!
____________________________________________________

Three weeks remain! This means that half of the contest time has passed and your map should accordingly be around 50% completion if you planned your time well.
However it's not too late to enter with improvised, shorter entries that can be completed within 3 weeks!

____________________________________________________
There's 31 days left between now and the closure of the contest. If we go by the standards set by Hellscrag in our last contest, your build should now be at around 20% completion. Be sure to keep an eye on the time management of your projects! They will not be rated by length, but rather by quality, since the goal is to create complete experiences in this short time span.

Good luck!

I DON'T LIVE IN LONDON. GOD.

I live in York, much less knife crime :B

Also, I would've entered if I didn't suck so much at making map stuffs. Terrain is something that gets me every time and looking at all these awesome threads with even more awesome rock formations makes me cry a little :(

Whenever I go to make maps, I get about this far in and just run out of ideas or find myself just throwing cubes and steps in randomly until it just explodes in a cloud of crap.

Enjoy a shameless self-promoting "If I entered the mapping contest, this would've been the first (And probably only) screenshot I would've posted" Screenshot of a room I made in 10 minutes:

What he said.

Anyway. FIRST create a plan. Pure cubes, no lighting, no details, just bunch a rooms and cubic corridors, movers. Make a plan of your SP map. When you're satisfied with your level design switch these simple qbs - one by one - to a more sophisticated ones. Screw the terrain, create a underground temple, skaarj orbital station, deserted mine, WHATEVA! Just do it!

London...UK...same difference XD :D :lol: :P The point is, you're coming over here anyway ^_^

And I agree with the others, you should definitely join the contest for the hell of it. Even if you end up making a 6 hour speed map :D :P It's still SOMEthing and it's worth it ^^

100th post was my entry into the contest. Does that mean my map will be 100 times better? Not likely!
