A second 5th has come and gone with no updates on the official competition, so as promised in the Challenge Ideas topic, I'm proposing the following community challenge:

Build a bridge of any kind or style, starting work on this coming Saturday the 11th, and stopping by the end of Sunday the 19th (all your local time.)

There are no hard limits on restrictions to geometry or texture count. You may include models, as long as less than half of the bridge is made up of model parts. You may use moving parts (func_whatever,) bumpy textures (of your own creation), advanced shaders, etc. - basically any technique you want.

1. Start a new topic using the title "Bridge Challenge - yourname", where "yourname" is your forum name.
2. Post a link to a working PK3 with a spawn point before the end of Sunday the 19th. The PK3 may be no larger than 5MB.

On the 20th, I will start a new topic for voting for the best submission, and anyone may vote on their favorite maps (other than their own). Anyone who has participated in the challenge can cast three votes, anyone who participated but did not finish can cast two, and anyone else who did not participate may cast one vote. Voting ends on Thursday the 23rd, and I will count the votes sometime on the 24th.

- While there is no limit on geometry, everyone is encouraged to consider performance when we get to voting. Ideally, when you build something for a game engine, it should be something that could reasonably be used in a playable map.

- While you are welcome to use bumpy/normal-mapped textures, nobody voting is required to view your map using the bumpy executable.

- Please update and comment often - a lot of the fun in these competitions is seeing how people think, seeing their progress, and getting feedback on your design.

- Feel free to start thinking of your design, looking for reference photos/arts, sketching plans, etc. Just please don't start building anything until the competition is officially started. We're using the honor system on this one.

Questions, comments? Let me know as soon as possible - I'm going to keep active watch of this topic, hopefully if I've been unclear or done something that prevents anyone from wanting to participate, it can be addressed/amended before the 11th.

Rofl, but yea, I'm in. Not sure how much time I'll get, but I'll give it a good shot. Brushwork only for me though. I'm sticking with what I know. :laugh:

Khaotik Lord, I'd say its up to the mapper, It doesn't even need to be a bridge for cars it could be a footbridge. and OFC you can the surrounding, its about lighting + detail + performance not just building brushes :P

Nailed it. The bridge itself is all that's required, but you can build out around it as little or as much as you want beyond that, as long as the focal point remains the bridge. We could have a highly detailed modern bridge that is nothing but brushwork and a few simple textures up against a very simple stone bridge over a tiny stream with carefully designed water and lighting, and that's totally fine - the focus is up to you.

I will try to create something, because i was thinking long time ago about making map with "S" layout and bridge in center.
