Beneath the Dust Mapping Contest

Dust has been one of the most popular maps in Counter-Strike's history since its release. What do you think would have happened if the Terrorists succeed in destroying one of the bombsites? Well, here's your chance to show it. You've got 40 days to create a CSGO map that is placed underneath one of Dust's bombsites.

Potential map ideas:
- The bomb reveals an ancient tomb under Bombsite A
- The bomb reveals an underground cavern under Bombsite A that links to Bombsite B
- The bomb reveals a secret CIA blacksite under Bombsite B

Judging
=======

As usually, every submission 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 site and tagged as a contest entry on or before the DATE!

    Checking the "Final" compile of the map, found game-breaking bug. Fun.

    For everyone currently in the contest and finishing up their entry, make sure to start doing this **right now!**

    Packing your map and making sure that there are no missing materials is crucial. This can, depending on your preparation, take a lot of time if there are multiple directories involved (Fur future reference, to make packing easier, ensure that all custom content is packed in one folder for models, two for materials of which one in the materials folder and one in the models folder of the materials folder and one for all sounds).

    If you're short on time, you don't have to insert descriptions or anything, just quickly upload the map instantly with at least one image (if urgent, just upload a random picture for a minute). You can adjust everything else in peace after doing that.

    Good luck to all entrants, only 2 houres to go :)

    Just uploaded my entry. Barely completed it on time. Could have done with an extra few days to add a little more polish and complete a final art/optimization pass, but I can live with it in this state.

    Good luck to everyone in the contest, especially if you're adding the final touches in these last 24 hours.

    Yea, I guess it's a bit late to start at working now. However, you could do it and then do some tweaking and add some spooky / horror things and such and try to release it for the Halloween contest.
