Map Battle 39 - INSANITY

Postby 904 on Wed Sep 30, 2009 7:48 pm

Yeah I know, I said it would start october 1st, but by the time most of you read this, it will be the 1st. Anyway, time for a new battle. And for this one show us:

INSANITY <--- I really wanted bigger wobbly letters and stuff.. but colors is all I got

Goal
Make a map in an official Valve Source engine game that shows us your depiction of insanity. The subject, setting and style of mapping is entirely up to you.

Deadline
The deadline for this battle is set on Saturday october 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 this.

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

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!
Just over three weeks time to come up with some creative stuff, now get mapping!
Please post W.I.P. shots and don't forget to mark your final screenshots. - not clearly marked shots will not be included for voting.


Next battle will start november 1st and will be a more limiting theme, but not a template.
And again, this theme came from TSFKAR (The Suggester Formerly Known As Rotinaj).


BTW
The voting thread for map battle 38 is still open, so please take a moment to vote while you still can!

I'm tempted to give this a go, seeing as i've never done a map battle before!

^ It would suit Cremator, but he hasn't participated in a looong time, so that would be a total surprise.

I might take a shot at this. I'm thinking something quick and easy. I'm thinking the old padded room and creepy hallway deal but I'm not sure. Maybe something different is in order. Also I am really looking forward to seeing what people come up with for this one.
As the radioactive ashes descend as dark snowflakes upon the smoldering ruins of civilization, it will be man’s compelling need to create destruction and war which will subconsciously fuel his ambition to rebuild.

Yep, Im definitely in. I've hit some inspiration. it's going to be like a bizarre mix of Super Mario Galaxy meets the real world...floating planets and mad stuff, it will be difficult, but I've already made a start, it's just the task of making it look interesting and not too empty...
