We are holding a Map Contest. June 15th - August 15th, 2006

We are a small team of independent game developers working on an American Civil War shooter. While we can not afford hiring several individual level designers, who may or may not end up producing quality TGE 1.4 maps; we can offer the MOD community an opportunity to win some prizes for creating the best maps. If you have the skills, then work your mapping magic and enter our contest. Why are we doing this you ask? Because in order to collect the cash prize, the winning level designer must agree to contribute the map towards the Civil War game project, assigning nonexclusive rights to the map for use in commercial game. The level designer retains rights to use the map in his/her own personal and/or commercial projects. So the contest is a good way for us to add quality maps to the game project and the contest is a good way for level designers to gain recognition and win prize money.

@D@rson07 - Thanks for the words of encouragement. We still have a long way go. Our current efforts have been toward
making the test Alpha, so we only have the temporary website up. The website needs a makeover, so contact me at fineas@prodigy.net
and include some samples of your work.

Thanks
