UT3 Mapping Contest: Potential Bonus Schwag

Voivode: map for Unreal Tournament 3 by the Handy Vandal - Blue Charges Power Node

New prize!

The Handy Vandal will provide Bonus Schwag — perhaps custom T-shirts, the Handy Vandal has not decided yet, but something worth owning — if the contest receives (and accepts) maps from ten or more different mappers.

The Handy Vandal is eager to encourage participation: the contest is a talent search, among other things.

If T-shirts persuade mappers to participate, then T-shirts it shall be. If some other schwag will win your love, please inform the Handy Vandal.

Other ideas? The Handy Vandal welcomes your suggestions for recruiting participants: karl@karljones.com.

UT3 Mapping Contest Update

Gilgamesh: map for Unreal Tournament 3 by the Handy Vandal: Blue Darkwalker, Red Eradicator

I have posted one more map — Gilgamesh — and updated Terranium as well.

All of the compiled (playable) maps are now available for download.

All of the source (editable) maps will be available Friday November 1, 2013 — the official contest start date.

I will probably post minor revisions to various maps over the next several days; it’s also possible that I will post another map or two.

Extractor: another new map for UT3

Extractor:  map for Unreal Tournament 3 by the Handy Vandal

Now available for your Capture the Flag pleasure:

Extractor for Unreal Tournament 3.

See Unreal Tournament 3 Maps for complete list of downloadable maps.

Also see Handy Vandal’s Unreal Tournament 3 mapping contest for more about the contest, and yes, Extractor is a contest map.

Right: I have the Red flag, but Blue Leviathan just went boom and the Reds want their flag back in a bad way.

Below: A few moments earlier, Red Darkwalker firing on Blue Leviathan. This ends badly for Blue in about twelve seconds.
