The Addon DB Living on the Edge mapping competition was a great success with 8 awe inspiring entries received. After playing the maps and grading them on design and detail, picking the top 3 was a tough task. In the end the following winners were chosen with the first two both receiving a prize from the Mod DB Game Store.

1st Place DM-Alice

DM Alice is fast and fun as well as being a treat for the eyes. It plays great with bots, better with friends and is the winner of the living on the edge mapping competition.

2nd Place DE-Heavens

A creative style with an evenly balanced layout makes DE Heavens great fun to play and a good challenge for even the best teams.

3rd Place DE-Rift

Picking 3rd place wasn't easy and only after much discussion (and arguing) was DE Rift chosen for its innovative take on living on the edge, being: "you're living in a world on the edge of collapse." In DE Rift you play through 4 different themes all on one map, the screenshots don’t do the map justice.

Finally, thanks and well done to all contestants. The entries are top notch - so be sure to browse and play them @ Addon DB. Look out for the next competition coming soon!

LORDDEREX > i believe the first one is for the karma engine (UT) and the other two are for the source engine (hl2, css and so on) but don't hold it against me :P

Awesome work indeed, it's all looking good :)

Congratulations to the winners. Glad I didn't enter, I would've been served up on a silver platter.

First one looks like UT2k4, the other 2 are Source engine (CSS judging by the name).
PS the engine is the Unreal (2.5 for UT2k4) engine. The Karma engine is the physics engine.

I saw this earlier and wondered what game they were for. I guess all UT2004. That three in the third one though threw me off..screamed source.

Swearing aside, these maps are most definitely not the best of the lot, possibly excluding DE_Heavens.

It was a Source/UT2K4 competition. DM-Alice is UT2K4, and the rest are Source.

Quote TKAzA: "They will be rated 1-10 on mapping, detail, use of textures, models and lighting. "

Don't change the rules half way through the competition.

If the rules say contrary to your statement, why say it in the first place?
