High Altitude

After the relativity poor turn out of the last mapping contest we've decided to go for a fairly open theme this time round. This time we want you to reach for the sky, quite literally, by creating fantastic levels set at high altitudes. The maps can be as realistic or as crazy as you imagine! Remember this contest is open to levels designed for ANY PC game/mod/game mode, the possibilities are endless!

Login / register to enter the contest
Need some ideas? How about: - A mission set at the top of a mountain? - Rooftop battles on a massive skyscraper? - A space station orbiting the earth? - A hijacked plane? - A battle aboard giant balloons or airships? - Floating islands in the sky above an alien planet? - Mid-air combat with players skydiving / parachuting? (Kill your enemies before you hit the ground?) As usual maps will be judged by our experts based on the following criteria. - Technical ability required to create the level. - Use of custom content (textures / props etc) - Overall aesthetics and ambiance. - How well the map fits the theme. - Amount of effort required to create the map. - Gameplay & Completion
This contest is open to anyone, so please feel free to re-post on other forums and share with your friends.

    Make sure you submit it to the GameBanana section!

    If you are adding it on a specific game section then that must be the error.
