Hey man, sorry it took me so long to upload my submission, I was up all night working on this. You said at least 5 maps, so I made a few more. Hope that's OK.

I think they're from the Discord. At any rate it's better than no one at all proposing contests!

That's a subjective statement

Seeing as it's been five years since the last map-making contest, I don't think it is all that subjective. The discord conversation spoke to a frustration over getting people to play netgames, and the map contest was proposed as a way to stimulate activity. I wholeheartedly share the sentiment.

I mean okay, there are certain people one doesn't want to hear from, but this new person seems coherent at least. If they stick around through next December, huzzah!

Hello @RadBurn, I am from the dischord channel, and don't really post on the pfhorums, at all actually. I started playing Marathon earlier this year. I am very fond of the community, but I recently discovered that it has been kind of stagnant in the content that they release, and I wanted to encourage friendly competition and people who create content for Marathon, specifically net maps for Marathon Infinity. This contest was originally started because of a map pack that I made in honor of the community on the Dischord channel. It can be found at http://simplici7y.com/items/legends-of- ... n-map-pack

I am curious to hear how you heard about Marathon and what lured you in.

@RadBurn, I believe that it was when my brother got a macbook, and he was looking for low system requirements mac-exclusive games, when he stumbled upon the original marathon trilogy. I recently before that had been playing Wolfenstein 3D, and I saw that Marathon looked much better, and in fact was open source. I had a new laptop at the time, so I went ahead and downloaded it. I was lucky enough to find a netgame with Mr. Theta and asdkzx123. I believe that Theta invited me to the Discord channel, and here I am, 5 or 6 months later. Btw, asdkzx123 and Mr. Theta will not remember it because I was going by my real name on the first couple of games. I later changed this to my current username, "raptor200221", which is also my PSN username.
