Hello everyone. I've wanted to host a Mapping Competition again for a while, but wanted to do something different rather than standard Tiberian Sun or Red Alert 2 mapping, so Crimsonum suggested I host a Twisted Insurrection Mapping Competition, so I'm going to go forward with the idea.
1 - Only One map per entrant.
2 - Map remakes from any C&C game are allowed, but they must be remade from scratch, not just modified versions of the originals.
3 - If you post any previews of your maps anywhere before the competition deadline, you will be disqualified and your map will be marked as void and will not be judged in the competition.
4 - You may modify your submission after you have submitted it, but be sure to get the new submission to me (Aro) on time.
5 - Entries must be submitted to Aro (Me) via Private Message by the 22nd of March 2011 (00:00 GMT)
6 - You are not allowed to use the Interior Terrain.
7 - Symmetrical maps are allowed, but will hurt your layout score.
8 - Twisted Insurrection staff members are not allowed to enter the competition.
Judging will be done by Aro (Me), Q45, Crimsonum, [TiberianFuture] and ^Rampastein.
You will be judged on:
- Map Detail
- Map Layout
- Map Lighting (10 points for Invisible Light Posts & 10 points for Global Lighting)
- General Gameplay on your submission
Will be out of 100 points, based on the criteria listed just above.
- 20 points for Detail
- 20 points for Layout
- 20 points for Lighting
- 20 points for Game play
- 20 points for Triggers.
Detailing points will be mostly based on how you use the new terrain additions as well as the standard mapping tiles. Also remember that lighting is split in two, you will receive a maximum of 10 points for your Global lighting and a maximum of 10 points for your use of invisible light posts, this is also important for the judges to remember.
You can download Twisted Insurrection: Public Beta 2 here which comes with Final TI (TI's map editor). I also highly recommend that you read through the Twisted Insurrection: Mappers Guide before starting on your map.
The best maps will be made official Twisted Insurrection maps. By default, the first, second and third place winners will each receive a TI Mapping Competition signature/banner. The winner(s) may get an early copy of Twisted Insurrection: Public Beta 3.
Good luck to everybody whom decides to enter, we're looking forward to seeing your creativity!
