Journey to the Center of the Earth

Intro: ------ Ever since we started doing contests one thing has popped up time and time again - "We want a CS 1.6 contest!" - well today we give you that chance! This website was founded over a decade ago as the go to place for Counter-Strike 1.6 mods and we've decided to return to our roots and launch a mapping contest dedicated to this legendary game! 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. To qualify the maps must be uploaded to the following category [GAMEBANANA > CS1.6 MAPPING CONTEST](http://gamebanana.com/maps/cats/8599) on or before the 19th of February 2015! Need ideas? ------ Despite being over 15 years old, the original Counter-Strike is still played by thousands of people every day, we want to show to everyone that you don't need fancy modern graphics to make a great game! Submissions can be for any game mode (official or custom), so here are a few ideas to get you going. - Mad Terrorists threaten to destroy the world by setting of a nuke at the earths core! - Scientists get sent down to explore the center of the earth but get captured and held hostage by someone - or some thing! - After an apocalyptic event the remaining humans are now forced to live in giant underground cities away from the earths surface. About GameBanana.com Contests ----------------------------- #CHECK BACK EVERY MONDAY FOR A NEW CONTEST! Our GameDev contest have proven so popular over the last few years that we have decided to launch 50 of them in 2015! We want to cover as many areas of game development as possible and generate content for a whole variety of games both large and small. If you are a developer, publisher, or or otherwise related to the industry and want to inquire about our contest opportunities please contact [Jon.Higgins@GameBanana.com](mailto:Jon.Higgins@GameBanana.com?subject=GameBanana%20Contest%20Inquiry).

    Well, I'm working on improving my map now :v I fixed the problem with the **aaatrigger** texture ;)

    Now can somebody explain me how to use **-chop** 'cause I really need to know so I can fix the huge lag on the map :) I made the map too big, I read somewhere that I have to use **-chop** command when compiling the map, but I don't know what value should I use :\ My map runs 71491 patches, but maximum allowed is 65535 and this causes the "Error: Exceeded MAX_PATCHES" message at the end of compile o.O How to fix this ?

    Also they don't even say who the judges are, or how many there are. And it would be nice if they reviewed everyone's maps so that the people who didn't win can improve.

    Judging will take probably around a week. I can't say for sure as we like to view the entrants together and so it just depends on when the judges are free.

    It always takes a long time! And it's a bit annoying, cos they never really announce it. Last contest they never even commented on my map giving it a rating or score or anything...
