This is the second mod in the 3×10 Mapping Competition Series.
Mapper were tasked with creating an defence scene.
There are 10 entries for this competition
In Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman finds himself trapped inside the confines of Gotham’s psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane, Arkham Asylum. The Joker has set a trap for the Dark Knight and has conspired with the deranged inmates to eliminate Batman once and for all. Adding to the authenticity of the game are veteran animated Batman voice talents Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy, who reprise their roles as The Joker and Batman respectively. Gamers will move in the shadows, instill fear amongst their enemies and confront The Joker and Gotham City’s most notorious villains, including Harley Quinn, Bane, Killer Croc, Poison Ivy and Scarecrow, who have taken over the asylum.

For this competition, you must create a scenario where you have to defend your outpost from a Combine attack.
The player should have approximately 10 minutes to prepare for the defence, including moving turrets, or other obstacles.
Ideally, the design would allow for players to try slightly different strategies on replays.

In this podcast I talk to Mark Allen, Justin Carlton and Darren Weekes about their entries to the AmbushVille mod, their approach to build a map in such a short time and other mapping topics.
If you have any specific questions , please post them as comments and I or the guest will respond.

Here we go again with another of “Miigaa’s maps”! Follow the route through various puzzles and combat until you reach the final battle.
As with all of his maps, enjoy the beautifully lit and composed areas but be aware that your sightseeing could turn into fighting for your life at any time.
Dropping down in the lift gives you little time to prepare but fortunately if you keep still the Metrocops won’t see you.
Not until you move, that is.
From then on, you are on a quest to find the hidden ammo cache!
Running without thinking won’t get you very far here. Good Luck.
Courtesy of the great Dennis Glowacki, (who is also part of the Warm Gun Game team) I have $25 of In-Game Stuff to giveaway to one lucky person. “Stuff” in this context is my technical term for “things you can purchase”.

This strategic, fast-paced, first-person shooter features incredible alien landscapes, customizable and upgradable mechs, and dynamic gameplay across multiple competitive game modes.
All you need to do is comment on this post and I will select a random winner on Saturday 9h November 2013.
You will need a Hawken account to redeem the code. All $25 will be given to one person. It is not possible to split the giveaway.

This is the first mod in the 3×10 Mapping Competition Series.
Mapper were tasked with creating an ambush scene.
“The winning map will be the one that sets up the ambush in the best way, paying attention to the atmosphere, the surprise and the general gameplay. If a map sets up the ambush beautifully but is then boring to play, it won’t win.
Attention to detail is very important in this competition. I would much prefer smaller but highly polished maps than larger, less polished maps.”
These short 2 maps came second in TWHL’s Test Chamber Mapping Competition back in November 2005.
You play no part in the introduction of the sample at the beginning but once the shit hits the fan, it’s up to you to find a way out.
I accept that there is no combat in these maps and therefore technically they shouldn’t be listed on the site, but I felt there was enough puzzle elements ad the fact that it’s set in Black Mesa was justification to include it.
For this competition, you must create a senario where you are ambushed by Combine Forces.
There are no limits to map(s) size or playtime. You can set the map in any environment that you want.
Please see the rest of this post for full details.
