Epic, GT, Aureal, 3dfx en Mplayer.com beginnen met het 2e deel van een wedstijd
wie de mooiste dingen voor UT kan maken.Last year, Epic Games in collaboration with GT Interactive, Aureal, 3dfx and Mplayer.com launched a contest in which they offered more than $US150,000 in cash and prizes to the Unreal editing community. With the release of Unreal Tournament the second phase of this contest has begun, with the UT DeathMatch map category the first to be judged. Here is what you need to know:
There is $7,000 awarded in this category. 1st place receives $4,000, 2nd place receives $2,000, third place receives $1,000. The contest submissions are due by 01/18/00, community judging from 01/21/00 to 02/01/00, with the top contenders being judged by a panel of experts to be named later.
They're not kidding - those are hard cash prizes and many people have already cashed in on their submissions to last year's phase of the contest. All entries to the UT DM category will need to be designed with both bots and humans in mind and should be both visually impressive and very playable. You can find the full rules for this particular category on this page
If you don't think you have the mapping skills it takes to participate in the actual contest, that doesn't mean you have to miss out. The Make Something Unreal organisers are also looking for community judges who are able to download and assess entries and for their trouble are giving the judges the chance to share in some great prizes as well:
Not submitting an entry? You can still take part! Register yourself as a Judge so you can vote on all the submissions and also have a chance of winning Voodoo3 graphics cards, Aureal sound cards and more in our monthly random drawings!
