Christmas Contest 2000
A PQ Kind of Christmas, Where Santa Comes Early!
  — by Pappy-R

Oh Christmas Tree!

To get you all into the holiday spirit we have a real bang up contest for mappers and modelers! We want a Christmas and PQ themed Quake III map and skinned model to play some of our challenges on. Now I know there's not a lot of time to get a piece out to us in either category, so we're gonna really make it worth your while. The winners of each top slot for a map and player model will receive a signed copy of Quake III: Team Arena!

You heard me right, the newest project from id Software that is expected to hit stores for Christmas and you'll get a copy sent to you signed by the makers of the mission pack themselves.

That's really gonna put the pressure on us here for judging since there should be some major quality floating on in try grab prizes like this. We're kicking out all the stops and leaving some room for close calls and are prepared for first, second, and third place winners in this huge contest. Here's how it all breaks down.

Mappers will want to make a Christmas and PQ themed level for either standard Team Dm or CTF. The levels must be submitted in proper pk3 format and usable by in-game menu. That means it's gotta work perfectly so we can distribute it right here on PQ and people can just grab and frag. Prizes are:

  • First Place: One Retail copy of Quake III: Team Arena signed by the guys of id!
  • Second place: One GameSpy shirt, GameSpy mug, GameSpy shotglass and GameSpy Arcade Registration!
  • Third Place: One GameSpy Arcade Registration.

To make this contest a real blow out, we want to get a player model for Quake III done as well. The model must be an original contest entry and must come in proper pk3 form with one skin included. We know this is a lot to ask, but we're putting out the goods here as well. The animations do not have to be all-original, but that could help separate the top slots from the rest of the pack.

  • First Place: One Retail copy of Quake III: Team Arena signed by the guys of id!
  • Second place: One GameSpy shirt, GameSpy mug, GameSpy shotglass and GameSpy Arcade Registration!
  • Third Place: One GameSpy Arcade Registration.

How long do you all have to get your goodies in? Well we want to play them and release them before Christmas of course so the dealine for both the models and the maps is December 19th, giving you just over two weeks to get them in. Entries will need to be mailed to Pappy-R. Hellchick, Pappy-R, and Ash will be the judges. That's a lot of work in a short time and you don't have elves to help so get going now to get in on these great prizes.

Best of luck to all! Stop reading and get started 'cause there's some serious booty here for you. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good frag!
