Quake Halloween Mapping Contest
I'm proposing something partway between a speedmapping session and a fullblown mapping contest (Coagula etc).

The rules: Make a map using the theme "haunted house." You have the month of October and should submit the map on Halloween. The map should support single player; cooperative and deathmatch are optional. There are no restrictions on size, texture set, or number of brushes.

I propose instead of the usual judging panel, everyone simply sends me a link to where their map can be downloaded, and I will post all of the links on Halloween. Who "won" will be a matter of popular opinion.

Thanks 
If you haven't changed your email address, Tronyn, I can use the one in my address book.

The extra time will allow me to neaten things up. 
Ok Cool 
still netgames@netdp.com :) 
Nope... 
...ain't gonna make it. So, maybe just the one :( I find it ludicrous to have 2403 brushes in the can but be only 2/3 of the way through. *shrug* That's just "modern" Quake mapping I suppose.

Still, not a complete loss as the large basement/prison + laboratory will re-skin nicely and fill a problemmatic section of the Knave schemed level I'm working on. I'll float a few pics at Pipeline before I start re-skinning. 
I'm Still In 
Could it be that an entire thread ends in a map made by just me? Don't know if I'm prepared for that kind of attention. I'm pleased with what I have so far and although it's only a mid-size map, I think it's better then one of those tiny bags of stale plain chips.

Secretly I'm hoping some other silent mappers will toss in a map or two but short of the internet going down, you can expect a little treat from Scraggy. 
A Victorian Secret 
The map is done and off to Tronyn. It has skill levels and should be a fun little romp with more surprises then Cracker Jacks but less harmful to your dental health.

...And there's no razor blades stuffed inside either. I have a full bowl of these little bsp's just waiting for whomever rings the bell. 
Don't Believe Him... 
...there are razor blades hidden all over the place. 
Hey 
Submitted a news thread for your map's release. I also updated my site (it's now available for download). I said there that I wouldn't play it tonight, but hey I couldn't sleep so I figured why not. I loved it. More comments when the news thread arises and my brain functions more.. uhm... better..
heh.. 
... 
And that's the URL to Tronyn's site for those of you that are still searching ;):

Kiss The Scraggy 
I know I should wait for the news thread but I'm going out now so no comments, but here's a demo of my first try at the map.
