Nuclear Dawn Mapping Contest 2012


The first Nuclear Dawn custom maps are starting to surface and we look upon them, we find them good. So good, in fact, that we want to offer two map makers the chance to have their work featured as an official Nuclear Dawn map, with the It’s a Nuclear World contest.

The rules are simple: you have just over four months to produce a custom Nuclear Dawn map that conforms to these rules. The map can have any shape, form, setting or theme you desire. You can work on your own or with a team, by using only existing Nuclear Dawn assets, or making everything from scratch.

What we are looking for is atmosphere and fluid gameplay, along with production values that can stand next to the existing maps. This won’t be a featured, or community map, but a full-blown part of the next Nuclear Dawn release, presented as an official standard rotation map.

For your troubles, and dedication, and love of the game, we will award 1000USD to the first prize, and 500USD to the second prize winners. You will also receive full credits in-game and on the website, as part of the Nuclear Dawn team.

The contest starts on February 18th, and runs through to June 25th. Voting will take place in the two weeks following the last submission date. In order to participate, you must first create a post for your map in the Contests Forum, and introduce yourself, your team and your map’s theme. We encourage and welcome open discussion and feedback on all maps, but will not allow multiple posts about the same map.

The winner will be selected with a public vote by you, the Nuclear Dawn community, and InterWave only reserves the right to veto submissions based on unsuitable or copyrighted content. All decisions are final once announced.

The grand prize for both first and second place is of course, your map being included in the official built of Nuclear Dawn!, furthermore:

1st prize: 1000$
2nd prize: 500$

Of course, a contest is not a contest without its rules! For a full list of the rules please visit the rules page, and you can ask any questions you have in the Contests forum thread.
