Welcome to the first Halomaps Idol!

This is an unthemed mapping contest which will run from TODAY, November 29th, 2008, until midnight Halomaps standardized time Febuary 7th, 2009, with a judging period from February 8th until February 28th.

Maps will be judged based on:
-Originality (10 points)
-Balance/Gameplay (40 points)
-Artistic Style (10 points)

The remaining 40 points are in the hands of the users of Halomaps! That's right, ultimately it is YOU who decide the winners!

Contestants:
Black Doom "Attack on Halo" http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=4189
ESG SLAYER "Fortification" http://files.filefront.com/Fortificationrar/;12507393;/fileinfo.html
Sheer, DEEhunter, Disaster, and Higuy "Fracture"
HDoan and ChocolateNugget
Gamma927
adumbass
Polamee "Death Intrusion" http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=63cdb57d52739ab7d2db6fb9a8902bda AND "Map Room" http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=4265

Judges:

Onotix JUDGE HAS BEEN REMOVED DUE TO SPAM POSTS
Maniac1000

Mythril
cowish6676
Lone Warrior

I'm looking for anyone who feels that they are UNBIASED with some mapping experience to judge. You don't have to be a Halomaps celebrity to judge, as long as you have a good map or two under your belt or experience regarding mapping and game balance.

If you would like to be a contestant OR judge, please simply reply saying so in this topic.

Also, please post your finished product and download link (No Rapidshare or website where you have to wait to download please, use Filefront or Halomaps) in this thread when done.

Thank you, and good luck!

Notice: the maps are not meant to be modified. I think he means that you need a map you moddeled to judge not modded.

I would judge but sadly I am biased. I might enter this, any prizes? Also I think artistic should be worth more at least 20 points.

Artistic would be worth more, but a map which is a box map with perfect gameplay is better than a map which looks nice in every way yet has HORRIBLE gameplay.
Of course, if you can mix both, that would be best.

You may enter the same map you used in any other current competition hosted by whoever else, I have nothing against that.

Your effort shows when entering a map, and the scores should reflect your effort. Remember this when making a mod, as it is considerably more effort making a new map then just modding an older one, and unless you put far more effort than it would have taken to get that map ingame (Ex. Grove -> CMT Snow Grove), it won't score very high.

As for prizes:
Currently, I have a special scenery item in store, however, if you would prefer, you may make ONE NON-MAP request of me (This means you can ask me to make ANYTHING for you, any weapon, vehicle, scenery, biped, script, whatever) and I will make it for you once the winners have been announced.

The problem with that is that (let's be frank here) the people will vote for the most well known people, who will have the best experience, and will have the ability to model something they need themselves or are part of a team that can easily supply their demands.

Well, the most well-known people are the most well-known for a reason...

And I do realize this, but again, being frank, everyone at one point does need some help or would like someone to get something done for them, and, if they don't want my help, they can always have the scenery item I have picked out for the winner.

I would like to enter this contest because I think it sounds fun and I would greatly appreciate any feedback on my maps, which I don't think are very well known. I'm going to enter one of my more recent pieces: Fortification, which can be downloaded at http://hosted.filefront.com/ESGSLAYER so I wish all contestants the best of luck!

Are we allowed to have teams? If so, I'd like to enter the map HDoan and I worked on for the winter contest. It's not done, but I'll tell you over XFire when it is.

The decision on that would be Jay's.
I will vouch for your character though.
