MODSonline.com and ASPAHost is announcing a Call of Duty Series mapping contest. Make a map for any Call of Duty game and submit it to win. You will be judged on the over-all submission based on completeness (of what we think was your goal if it appears incomplete), difficulty, overall appearance (does it look good), and playability (is it fun).




One important rule is that this cannot have been a publicly released project until after the contest. This means if you already made a custom map or modification and released it to the public, you cannot resubmit it. This must be a new and original piece of work.

(I'll get to the prizes in just a second)

Submissions must be made by the end of day, September 30th EST. That is 6 weeks for you to create your piece. So this means you should start work right now!
This deadline is subject to extension if I get enough requests for one (I realize 6 weeks isn't long, but it should be long enough to at least come near completion and everyone has an equal chance).

Now for the prizes. In past competitions such as this we have found that there are not a lot of participants. This is also why we are making sure not to limit the submissions... we want more contestants to enter. So, assuming that we again don't have many submissions (about 10 is what we are guestimating, however more submissions might encourage us to add prizes), there will be just one grand prize. The Prize is brought to you by ASPAHost Webhosting

The prize is a 1 year webhosting package with a free domain.

Disk Space: 12Gb
Bandwidth: 300Gb
Domains Allowed: 500
Subdomains: Unlimited
Mysql Databases: Unlimited
FTP Accounts: Unlimited
E-mail Accounts: Unlimited
Email Forwarders: Unlimted
Auto-responders: Unlimted
Mailing Lists: Unlimited
Cron
PHP 4.4.6
Perl 5.8.7
Frontpage
phpMyAdmin
cPanel 11
Fantastic

Can maps be submitted that have only been privately released - like on your own clan's server?

I'm not really sure, I don't think it would matter too much. I will talk it over with the other judges.

CoD4 comes out very soon.
I don't think anyone will be up for making a map unless they only want to win this prize, I doubt the maps will get played much publically as attention will be moved to CoD4. [crazy]

Could have made this a prefab contest.
Or a CoD4 mapping contest by having people start out the designs in CoD2 Radiant and later port into CoD4 Radiant to texture and showcase.

The opposite could happen too. CoD4 may just bring attention back to the older games, and a lot of us still play, and map and mod on CoD and CoD:UO despite CoD2 being out.

The prize is pretty for someone who has a use for it. Same with last competition.

I'm in the same position as Raaaaaa - I have the map I was making for the last comp sitting at 75%. So as long as life doesn't get in the way, I feel confident I could finish it.

Now that I have a new PC that doesn't reset every 5 minutes. It should be much easier to complete!

If you guys submitted your maps last competition even though it wasn't done, is it really fair to submit it this time around for people who are starting from scratch.

[duh]
