PVKII Mapping Competition

'Ello thar!

The Pirates, Vikings and Knights II team proudly announces our first ever mapping competition!

This competition will have 2 deadlines. The first deadline will be for submitting your name and map idea into the competition. To do so you will need to make a post in this thread. You have until Valentine's day (Saturday, February 14th) to get your map name, game mode and a short description of the map into the competition (One map per person, if multiple people work on a single map, one person will need to be chosen as the 'lead' mapper). You may choose one of two game modes to use for your map, Objective Push or Territory.

After the 14th, two forum Areas will be added and contestants will be granted permissions to post threads in them. From there you will start your own thread where you're free to detail the progress of your map and recruit beta testers. The map is to be completed by March 20th, the first day of spring. By this date, the map should be downloadable and ready for judging. The contest will be closed and the PVKII team will pick the best from each category based on Appearance, Balance, Creativity, Optimization and Fun Factor. The finalists will then be put to vote by the community and a winner from each category will be selected.

Prizes are still to be decided. Through the help of our community, we've gathered a few donations and will be putting them to use for the competition. Also, if you're interested in sponsoring this competition, please email me at crazytalk(at)comcast.net to discuss the details.

Good luck to everyone! For more information, visit the announcement thread here!

That's all for now. I wish I could give away a bit more info on 2.3, but we have a few things planned for the near future so look forward to that soon!

Also, there's just a few days left in the Mod of the Year competition over at Moddb! I've posted some instructions on how to vote for your favorite mods! Click Here

    Ahh kidding. Gotta say I'm a tad dissappointed over the lack of 2.3 news, but this is cool too!

    Suck up less, or at least make it less obvious.

    I'm going to be entering my latest project into the contest, so this should be pretty sweet. (Can't wait for the news on 2.3 either!)

    Also, how are we to test our maps? Can we have open testing on public servers, or can we only do private testing sessions?

    I agree with what WatchMaker is proposing - it would be sweet to be able to test the maps with the beta testers we gathered from the forums on an official server.

    I would surely like to compete, but my vacation in March makes this quest well-nigh impossible. Good luck to those who have the time!

    Will Turner: You didn't beat me. You ignored the rules of engagement. In a fair fight, I'd kill you.
    Jack Sparrow: That's not much incentive for me to fight fair, then, is it?

    This is an excellent idea! It will encourage people to make new custom maps and I always like a good custom map to play! I have no idea how to make a map myself but, this will be interesting to see what people come up with. biggrin.gif

    Also, are we allowed to use Orange Box features, or must the map be compatible with the currently released version? (Important questions! Answers, gogogogo.)

    You're probably out for the sexy weather effects the OB has, WatchMaker? I think that until further notice 2.3 won't be ready on March 20th, so that would indeed mean that the maps can only have Ep1 engine features.

    That's my view on it though, Crazy will undoubtedly correct me on this if the assumption is incorrect.

    If it has to be distributed with the map, it has to be your own or something you have permission to use.

    Lol you guys suck a bag of dicks it takes you a year and a half to release anything lol. I Google PVK here and there to check and see how ur doin and its always the same. Have nothing new released, im surprised people still play you're mod. PVK was released jan 10th 2007 and it's feb 2nd 2009 and u have the same 3 fucking classes per team that uve had for the past 2 years lol. If I were u id just give it up lol. The mod's not that great in the first place and not that many people are willing to wait 2 years for 1 new class for each team lol. Kinda figured id enlighten u guys lol. The only people anxious for the release of 2.3 are the few people that still post on the forums... PEACE....

    When you dont like the mod, why you are here?

    This mod is about quality, not quantity.
    I dont think that there is another mod with models, which are as awesome as those in pvkII and also the fight system and every details you fool dont notice, cost lots of work and patience.

    If you dont respect this, fuck off.

    Sounds border-line pathetic. One more day of hanging around these forums might just put you over the edge.
