Posted: Mon Feb 28, 2005 8:40 pm
For the contest, Time Trial map and screenshot are attached.

OK, both maps have been added to the rotation. Please log into hepcat.tybox.net:5157 to check that all settings are working the way you like (if not, please update the options block of your map)
Very cool maps, btw!
Oops, forgot world variables
Posted: Mon Feb 28, 2005 11:37 pm
Very sorry, forgot to add world variables to make the maps playable. I should read the rules a little more carefully
Can you, please, please change the maps currently running on contest with these?

I want to know how are the maps judged? By how many people come to the server or are they veiwed by hepcat members?
Posted: Tue Mar 01, 2005 3:57 am
By vote of any registered forum users.
Originally, the contest was to be judged via a vote at http://hepcat.bzflag.org/forums/
, however there has been a great deal of activity at http://my.bzflag.org/bb/
on the topic of the contest. Would it be more appropriate to hold the vote at http://my.bzflag.org/bb/
rather than http://hepcat.bzflag.org/forums/
I will tally votes of poll in this topic from both sites (the other is at http://hepcat.bzflag.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=1228
) to decide where to hold it. Keep in mind that because this vote is held in both places, people can "double-vote", and there isn't really anything that can be done to prevent this because it is at both places. That being said, feel free to vote twice!

How about both? If you go for one, something might go wrong and the other one will be active, and the whole thing will goof?

i'll submit a map if i figure out how...

Here is 1 more map submission for the contest (Twin Peaks) with screenshots.
Posted: Wed Mar 09, 2005 11:05 pm
I really don't think my map can compare to that 2.0-worthy contest material.
Posted: Thu Mar 10, 2005 6:06 am
Twin Peaks is now on the display server. Take a look.
Also, for the sake of ease of use, I've added the /shutdownServer command to all registered users so you can rotate them manually if you like. Please don't abuse it.
Posted: Thu Mar 10, 2005 8:49 pm
Uh... I did /shutdownserver expecting it to shutdown and come right back up with a new map, but I think I shut it down for good because I can't connect to it anymore.
Posted: Fri Mar 11, 2005 3:10 am
I can connect fine. Since each map is downloaded before the server is started, it may take a second or two before it starts up.
Posted: Fri Mar 11, 2005 1:14 pm
Man I didn't know you could enter more than one map
Alright this means war
The Lost City's Pic (above)
The Palace of Wotonia's Pic (Above)
I don't have time to make them a conf right now, so I'll PM it to you I guess SilverFox!
Posted: Fri Mar 11, 2005 1:45 pm
Ok nm I changed the files to bzw, if you see anything dumb or a goof please tell me!
The settings all should be in the file.

Ducati I think you have enough maps already, okay? I mean really how long does it take you to make those huge complex maps??? As you can see by Reloaded ( My map ) im very impateient and I like to get stuff done faster. Why dont you just make some simple maps and spend the extra time you have by figureing out some 2.0 stuff and add them to the simple map? BTW I like the maps...
Posted: Fri Mar 11, 2005 8:49 pm
Ohh, now the server works. It was just that one time, it took a few minutes for the server to come back on. Everything ok!
Posted: Fri Mar 11, 2005 9:48 pm
OK, to keep this from getting out of hands, I'm updating the rules to limit each submitter to 3 submissions (that means no more than 3 maps!)
Posted: Sat Mar 12, 2005 3:06 am
Good idea, I was going to suggest that
of course...I helped add confusion
BIYA: I suppose I could work on 2.0 maps, I have, but I always make them simple.
Posted: Sat Mar 12, 2005 3:28 am
I got a 10min. map im gonna submit. After I make it into a 30min. map
Posted: Sat Mar 12, 2005 4:11 am
Can you spend 5 of those min. on my map?
Posted: Sat Mar 12, 2005 5:23 am
Errr you wont give up will you?
Posted: Sat Mar 12, 2005 9:36 am

Which one is your favorite so far, and why do you like it?
Posted: Fri Mar 18, 2005 7:44 pm
you only need /shutdown
Posted: Fri Mar 18, 2005 8:05 pm
Silverfox you should make a different forum "Hepcat Map Contest Votes" or somthing....
