Map Battle 35 - Eden

Postby 904 on Sun May 31, 2009 10:07 pm

Map battle 35's theme is:

EDEN


A bit of background
Eden originates from the 'garden of eden', from the biblical book of Genesis and is known as the place where Adam and Eve lived after GOD created them.

Eden to many people is synonym to "Paradise". And in that sense Eden can be interpreted in many ways, which is what this battle is about.

Goal
This being an abstract theme, I leave it up to you to expand on the idea of creating your view of your Eden in Source.

Deadline
The deadline will be 3 weeks from now on Monday 22nd of June. As usual, the battle will be closed at the end of that day, at mignight GMT; for the closing times around the world, check here.

Basic Rules
Three screenshots max; from an official Valve Source engine game; custom content more than welcome. You can find the full rules here. If you've got any questions about the theme, the rules or the battles generally, either post in this thread or PM me.

So get mapping, post plenty of W.I.P. shots and don't forget to mark your final screenshots.

Enjoy & Good luck.

Disclaimer: The actual factual correctness of the situation in the garden of eden is not something I'm sure of.. I wasn't there, nor were you. O, and to be complete: I do not believe in creation. (-creation of man- I meant to say, as stoop correctly pointed out below - I didn't want to use creationism because it felt like I would believe in evolutionism...)

I think you mean creationism :D Cause you surely believe in creation if you're hosting a map battle.

Well this is out of no where... I'll probably enter this one as it's the start of summer this week and I have nothing to do.

Well then I'm making a gritty, steampunk, wet and rainy megapolis with police and prostitues. The apple would be the prostitutes of course.

I think this is a topic that seems like one that is obvious what everyone will do but if you think about it a bit more better ideas will start to pop up.

Like the applitutes... genius.

That could actually work out good, if you make it right :|

If you do not believe in creation, how are we going to make these maps?

It was clearly stated in the post that we can interpret it as we want. Garden of Eden is an idiom(?) for paradise, where life feels good.

C'mon, no one is participating? Am I the only one? D:

Also, Zipz, thanks for the tip. Naked ais a bit vulgar though, methinks. It is a map battle after all.

Oh yes, an inportant quesion. Do animated textures work on static models?

No it was a joke, i meant creation like making a map.. I should have done something like "If you dont believe in creation how are we going to make these maps"

I might participate
