Default Level Modding Contest: TRU Rumoured Locations (open to TRL & TRA modders)

[CENTER]



Introduction:
The goal of this contest is to mod a level from TR Anniversary or TR Legend to make it look like one of the rumoured locations for TR Underworld. Level mods are an ambitious undertaking; you may work on your own or in a team (recommended).


Deadline for Entries:
Tuesday, June 17th deadline extended! - Tuesday, July 1st

Rules and Guidelines:
  1. Your team may mod one level only
  2. It is recommended that teams do not exceed 5 members each
  3. Try to spread the workload evenly; treat your teammates with kindness and respect
  4. Make your mods as detailed and creative as possible; almost no textures should be left un-modded!
  5. Mods may include NPCs(non-playable characters, the animals, the bosses) mods and outfit mods


Rumoured Underworld Locations:
Here's some ideas gathered from articles about TRU. Clicking on the links takes you to some google image search results about some ruins and ancient temples from those places, a great way to pick up some inspiration!

-Mexico level
-Underwater levels
-Norse level
-Cambodia level
-Nighttime level(s) - imagine Egypt at night!
-Moon level
-Burned down Croft Manor level
-Vatican
-Australia
-Mesopotamia
-Or any location you'd like to see in Underworld

On the Hub are lists of levels in Legend and Anniversary.


Have fun and let your imagination run wild!

Off to a flying start!

May I suggest giving a little more time for the entries? Not everyone works at Zipper's supersonic speed. Also, since there is another modding competition also going on, some people may want to enter both, which means they would need more time.

How do we get information on how Underworld levels look ?

I have not been following Underword threads, as I wanted it all to be a suprise when I get the game.

We'll mostly be using our imaginations to figure out how our levels should look. There's also plenty of ancient civilisations associated with each of the rumoured locations to give us something to start with. For example, if someone wanted to do a Mesopotamian theme, they might want to make one of Anniversary's Egypt levels look like the gates of Babylon:

The Egypt levels have lots of brick-like textures that would translate well into the blue glazed brick facade of the Ishtar Gate

Hey, sounds interesting, but unfortunately I don't want to look at the artwork in the first post... I was freaked out and scrolled down as fast as I could.
Can I join without breaking my strict anti-spoiler policy?
