Hey guys, Well it’s finally that time again; time for a mapping contest! First of all I apologise for the suddenness of this announcement, but I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to better prepare you guys for it. Hopefully though it’s a nice surprise, and shouldn’t cause anyone to collapse in shock… ;) Before I go into contest details I want to tell you about one of the exciting features of this contest; we will be doing it side by side with out fellow FileFront network site; Star Wars Battlefront Files. They are also having a mapping contest of the same theme. But what is that theme? Well the theme we are having for both our mapping contests is the planet [COLOR=royalblue]Taris[/COLOR]. Obviously this wont be a competition between our two sites, it's hard enough to compare one map against another from the same game, so doing it against one from a different game would be too difficult to be practical. Any Star Wars Battlefront 2 map submitted will be competing against other Star Wars Battlefront 2 maps on their site, and any JKA maps submitted will compete against JKA maps on our site. We are planning to keep you updated on the progress of the contest on both our sites however, so look out for news posts on both sites featuring maps from either game. We're also planning on having our respective sites' staffs work together and getting some guest reviews from SWBFFiles staffers here and JKFiles staffers there! As I said earlier, the theme for this contest is the planet Taris. Me and Maveritchell, the manager of Star Wars Battlefront Files, got together and after some discussion settled on the planet of Taris for the theme of our respective contests. Taris is a planet with plenty of different environments to explore, with an Upper, Middle and Lower City, and Under City, Sewers a Sith Base and more. This should hopefully provide you guys with plenty of mapping opportunities! :) The contest will start officially tomorrow, Wednesday 7th July and will run for around a month, although that is an approximate deadline, the actual deadline has not been firmly set just yet as we will be co-ordinating it with SWBFFiles. I will be posting a news item tomorrow detailing the contest rules and what you need to do to enter, as well as some useful links to visual reference material. I look forward to seeing what the mappers in both our great communities can make for this contest! Nozyspy JKFiles Manager
Meh, sounds interesting, are staff members allowed to submit?
This sounds really cool and I can't wait to see what entries turn up as.

If only I knew how to map :uhoh:
I didn't make it!
I... choked... and almost collapsed in shock.
Anyways, nice to see a contest coming, especially one for Taris. I'm a big fan of KOTOR, and I especially liked Taris, so there may be a chance that I will join, considering I want to start mapping again.
I'll consider joining :D
This makes me wish I was better at visuals when it came to mapping...
But no, I went with gameplay...

There's nothing wrong with that, I'm the same way. It takes me forever to make stuff visually attractive.
I doubt I'll be able to join, though. WAY too much going on...
Oh cmon, someone gotta join @_@
