Map Battle 41 - Map us a Song

Postby 904 on Wed Dec 02, 2009 8:43 pm

As might have figured out, stage 2 of the Atrium battle will be postponed until january. But until we do that, I have a theme that has been requested many times and is widely interpretable:

Map a Song


Goal
Whatever song you like, turn it into a map!
And remember: visuals are everything!

Deadline
The deadline for this battle is set on Thursday december 24th. The battle will be closed at 22:00 GMT that day. For a conversion of the the closing time to your own location, check here.

Basic Rules
  • Three final screenshots max
  • You should use an official Valve Source engine game (that means no Gmod)
  • Custom content is more than welcome

Additionally
Please include artist(s)/band and the title of the song with your final submission. You may include a description or lyrics as well if you feel that's needed, also a youtube (or similar) link is appreciated.

Full rules
You can find the full rules here. If you've got any questions about the theme, the rules or the battles in general, either post in this thread or PM me (904).

Good luck! & don't forget to mark FINAL screenshots.

In january we will do a gameplay battle, based on the outcome of the Atrium battle.

Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

This is interpretable in a whole new sense of the word.

I mean, technically, you could make absolutely any scene with the right song.

Within reason.

This is just a test I did a long time ago but how would you like to PLAY a song? It's just a camera sequence...

With Srredfire's battle and this battle, putting up a new shed, and remodelling the bathroom, Christmas is going to be pretty packed for me. But I like the sound of this battle so I'm in for this one too.

Well what I would do but I won't is map the Stairway to heaven. Or highway to hell.

Those are as obvious as it gets.

Nub has nothing to do with this. There's a lot of thinking behind every aspect of that little shroom there, and that's only a minor background prop for whats to come.

Also, I made mine with displacements, and that's way cooler.
