Doom 3 Speed Mapping contest, with prizes, is coming soon! Sign up today!

Posted by on

It's here, a Doom 3 Speed Mapping Contest! It could be the first one I know of. Either way, we've got prizes for the winner: a copy of Steel Storm: Burning Retribution and Iron Grip: Warlord! Since it's a contest for an id game it seemed appropriate to give the winner some id-tech games.

Here's the skinny on the contest: you sign up ahead of time with me, The Happy Friar, before the 11th. E-mail me at “the_happy_friar at yahoo dot com”. Be sure to have the subject of your e-mail be “Doom 3 Mapping Contest”, that way if it ends up in my spam filter I know it's not spam. The contest will start on October 12th @ 00:00 EDT and will end one week later on October 18th at 23:59 EDT. Then a “highly skilled” set of judges will rate the maps on your technical skills and gameplay. The map is SP only. Make sure they're new maps and not a redo of something you've done before! The winner gets Steam keys of the aforementioned games!

Oh, one more thing: to make sure nobody gets a jump start, I'll e-mail the people who registered the theme of the map when the contest starts! Could be you have to make a fluffy bunny map, or one that looks like the internet, who knows!

Any questions feel free to e-mail or PM me. Comment on the Doom 3 World thread or here.

Just want to watch a cool-looking promo? Here ya go!

It's just like GTKRadient. Here's some basic D3 tutorials on moddb: Moddb.com
On doom3world: Doom3world.org

If you can map for Quake 1, 2 or 3 then it's basically the same (some minor things changed). Even if you're not good and just make box maps with baddies that's all good. You have to start somewhere. :D

hehe well maybe for next contest i might have learnt enough to create something, hopefully something a lil more intriguing than a square box ^^ One of my pet "ideas" would be to make a recreation of the GoldenEye map Facility, prob a 2part map
