Winter Worlds Mapping Contest!

Intro ------- It's getting frosty out, and we want to see your best winter themed level creations! Note: Although for this contest we will accept re-makes of existing maps, a map that is heavily modified or created specifically to fit with the theme will likely have a higher chance of winning compared to a simple re-texture of an old map. Judging ----------- As usual the submissions will be judged on the following categories. - Technical ability required to create the submission. - Use of custom content (textures / models / sounds etc). - Overall aesthetics, quality and completion of the map. Please submit all entries to the [GameBanana > Winter Worlds category](http://gamebanana.com/maps/cats/8569) Need some ideas? - Why not create a buried antarctic base or research station? - Santa's grotto? - A mission set on an icy moon or frozen planet? - A zombie invasion in the middle of a blizzard? - A battle for control over some igloos? - A terrorist attack on a Siberian oil pipeline or frozen oil tanker? The possibilities are endless! This contest is open to anyone, so please feel free to re-post on other forums and share with your friends.

    Any update on this, please? It's been three weeks now, and it doesn't feel right not to see the maps in the right category.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Oak,

    The maps will be moved to the correct section shortly, I think they should be at the top (if not just publish an update and they will be bumped back up).

    Thanks for the work that went behind the scenes. This was a very inspiring contest for sure.

    I was wondering if the maps could be moved to their right category and, if possible, would be placed on top of that category. Otherwise they might end up after the newer ones and will definitely not get many more views.

    I would really appreciate this. Thanks!

    Shoot me a pm. I've done 5 videos today for feedback and I'm a bit burnt out on them but I'll probably get round to any new requests for feedback tomorrow.
