    So you'll should make a city in extreme location and some train stuff there. In example the city can be in mountains, Antarctica, ocean, moon or in cave or what ever.
    [SUB]I'll made an exception in rules for Gamedev to motivate him with Jorpakko, he can join with it, but he has to show something new from it or i'll disqualify him.[/SUB]

    I had an idea for something like this before. I don't want to join until I actually make headway though, I've dropped out of contests to many times before...is it alright if I start a project and THEN join in?

    Realized that by the deadline the sale will be over so all the $5 games won't be too exciting,

    offering the Hitman collection as a prize instead - via steam.

    that's stupidly specific, why not just cities in extreme locations or railroads?

    Edited:

    I think it should just be a train trip or something. A trip on a train that can have land marks you pass and beautiful features.

    Could I do that? If so, I'm in.

    Oh, alright. The idea I had in mind was like a museum, a train going through every source game kind of. Would that be okay? If I had Garry's Mod, and a shitty rp map?

    it's a city in a meteor that got caught by earth's gravity and works as a tiny natural satellite.

    Does a payload count as a train?

    I could enter my Team Fortress 2 map, which I haven't been working on for over a year.

    I'm in, would it be OK to do a train ride (London Underground) through a sort of post apocalyptic "extreme" city, like this but more volcanic?

    Trainception? I like it.

    I don't think I will join this one though, a whole city is just too much of a project to handle for me alone. And quite honestly, I don't see how anyone can want to try making a city all on their own, since that would be a pretty damn big project.

    it looks nice but I'm not really getting that 'city' vibe from it - looks like some kind of mining colony.

    i'm gonna add a bunch of lights and even more buildings. don't worry. it's just a wip.

    Edited:

    but seriously, the 2nd pic doesn't even resemble some space city? that's weird.

    Count me in I guess. I think I'll try to make a Beneath a Steel Sky-ish city.


    Just to clarify, this map is being judged on screenshots/videos, not gameplay right?
