Here’s a map for Virus I just uploaded a couple days ago (and already posted a thread about, not knowing this contest was going to happen lol).

It’s kinda large relative to most of the official maps (probably a bit smaller than Catzek Temple) and has a couple unique features: working elevators and shortcuts that only Infected players can walk through.

Howdy! Here is my submission: a SDNL map named Stranded. It’s a small map, similar in gameplay to Meadows. Meadows was always my favorite SDNL map, so this is basically that with a bit more cover and better compatibility for gamemodes like CTF and Oddball since there’s a bit more cover. I think it’s definitely still best for gamemodes like Arcade and Gun Game though!

Welcome to DUKE3D du Bug.
This is an exact re-creation of the famed Duke Nukem 3D 1996.

This map has taken 110 hours to create, it includes all secret areas, item pickups, working keycards, playable pinball machine, and lots of sprite animations that make it feel like you’re back in the 90’s saving babes.

A condo version is also available on the Workshop.
groovy, baby.

Thanks to Aman-Anony for the Pinball IO.

Entry: Steam Workshop::Dustyville (TDM, Arcade, GunGame & CTF)

This is Dustyville, a map I started making maybe a week after Workshop Gameworlds became available and it took me about 4~5 days of work (around 5~6 hours a day)
I was inspired a lot by maps I used to play back in CS 1.6, so I tried to recreate something that feels like a TDM/FFA map from that time, and I’m happy with the result.

What maybe took me the most time was making sure to add invisible geometry around everything the player might’ve gotten stuck on. And from testing (a lot), you can bump into any object and it won’t ever completely stop your movement, it’ll just smoothly slide you to its side so you can just keep on running. No cheeky spots above houses or pixel walks either!)

Immerse yourself in this new innovative experience; powered by advances in I/O, this is an entirely new gamemode built within the framework of Little Crusaders.

In this gamemode, the dragon takes on the role of the player with the goal of shooting down all the knights throughout the round. As the knights spawn randomly throughout the round it is their goal to outrun the dragon’s cursor as it chases them for 45-60 seconds.

The Duck Hunt portion of the map lasts 1 minute, and proceeds to a normal LC arena/gameplay afterwards to provide a chance of winning for the knights.

Once it’s Halloween again I will also try and get two more “Hell Portals” for the mid-level. Unfortunately I can not get those at this time.

Club Titiboo (Little Crusaders)

Tonda Gossa! Welcome to Club Titiboo, home of the DCMC!

Relive your days of being the Ultimate Chimera as you trample down these iconic halls and tunnels reborn as a ferocious dragon!

This map is a complete recreation from the ground up of the original Club Titiboo, even down to the breakable walls!

ezgif-5-6b3133798e

All textures have been repurposed from the original map and upscaled or remade to keep that iconic look while looking better than ever!

  • Please note: I was trying to wait and see if the fix for texture rotations would be out before uploading all of these gifs and screenshots for the contest, but i’ll have to upload them just how they are now. Pending fix, super sorry!

Some things to note

  • Every part of this map (except for the few workshop items and a couple in-game items) is made using canvas primitives!
  • I worked super hard to preserve a really low workshop item count on this map. The only workshop items are TF2 items and I tried to keep these to a minimum to enhance overall player loading experience

Added Features

  • EASTER EGGS! We LOVE easter eggs! This map features several easter eggs that can be found by sticking your nose in places you probably would have never guessed! I’ve been hearing some ghostly noises coming from one of the doors in the halls… maybe you could start there?

Planned features

  • Classic music from Ultimate Chimera Hunt is planned to be added with the release of workshop soundpacks! I am super excited for this feature, and I hope you’ll be excited to hear some beloved Mother music make a return for this map soon!

  • Possibly more easter eggs and secrets? Who knows!

This was such a big project of passion for me to remake a map I love and adore, and it is so great and fulfilling to see that this map can still be enjoyed through its successor game.

Thank you for checking it out, and always remember to be aware of your surroundings! You never know who or what may be behind you :thinking:

Greetings! I present to you my map to participate in the 2024 GameWorld Maps contest: MedievaLand! it’s an amusement park like those you’d find near seaside resorts but with a slightly medieval theme, as a gameworld map. My steam profile is [Steam Community :: TheGreenKing ] and this is Medievaland 2024 !

featured image:

Oh no! the Dragon Animatronic came to life and escaped from one of the attractions in this park! Only you and your friends are able to turn it off by pressing the button on its back, saving the park and bringing back the magic!

This map was created for Little Crusaders, for the layout I was heavily inspired by the layouts of various official maps to make sure it was balanced to play.

Logically the attractions cannot be ridden, although they give an excellent addition of dynamism to the map thanks to the animated lights and moving parts.

Special Feature: In this map, using an I/O circuit, the first 5 rounds will take place during the day while the remaining 5 will take place at night, to make the gameplay more varied and to make the game more difficult

I created this map in a month, starting on May 8th and finishing today, June 7th
using zero workshop items!! (yes, even the coaster is made out of canvases)

The map is complete with invisible boundaries to prevent players from finding unfair hiding places and to prevent them from coming into contact with moving parts of the attractions

Many details and many well-hidden Easter eggs await you at MedievaLand!

Here is a short video with all the details of the map: lights, attractions in operation, special effects.

Here are some photos for those who don’t have time for the video:


VVV VVV VVV

Some details that make this map interesting

Some details that make this map interesting:

  • The “Wacky Birb” coaster is a parody of the very famous “Wacky Worm”, one of, if not the most famous roller coaster model in existence: they can be recognized for having caterpillar-themed trains and for being practically everywhere.

  • There are several attractions themed after Tower Unite characters, such as Kalleira for Magical Clouds, Birb for the coaster, the in-game plush rabbit for Flying Rabbit and King Arthritis for the cauldron-themed teacups ride.

  • The “Its a small Forest” DarkRide is a parody of the very famous “Its a Small World”, an attraction present in several Disney parks known for its repetitive music. The logo itself took almost 2 hours to make.

  • The bumper cars are a faithful reproduction of those that can be seen in the Plaza, since there wasn’t one already made I had to recreate it from scratch.

  • All the lightbulbs in the midway area are made up of 3 canvases each, for a total of approximately 3,000 pieces

  • The “Dungeon Falls” log flume is based on a traveling model currently on the market, which means you may have seen an identical one in real life! If you are interested in knowing, it is the logflume from Reverchon

  • The wizard’s hat on the “Merlin’s Challenge” ticket booth was designed to be placed on top of “magical Clouds”, where Kalleira is now. Let’s recycle to save the planet!

^^^ ^^^ ^^^

Oh! I almost forgot the most important thing: if you can’t wait to try it, you’ll want to check out this:

Edit: The map has been updated several times to fix every major and minor issues found while playing, including fixing the invisible walls to prevent ghosts from leaving the map
(the full changelog can be found on the steam workshop page)

Thanks for the support!
