It's been insane and fun once again! :)

I can certainly say that I need to get back into some stealth game play because some of these maps were pretty brutal and punishing (Looking at you SETHO and Azulluna :P)

But indeed thanks to everyone that participated, hope you enjoyed yourselves ^_^

Hahaha Thank you and congratulations to everyone.

There was so many awesome maps this time, it must of been really difficult to choose.

And I have to say, with being new to the PC, the help and support everyone have given me has been greatly appreciated.:)

Congrats to all participants. I have played a couple of the maps and I'm very impressed. Really outstanding maps. Not only for the design and look of the map, but also the gameplay. I can't wait to play some of the maps I missed.

Also I want to thank Ubisoft and the Devs for having this Map Jam. It must have been very hard to pick out the maps. I hope Ubisoft continues having Map Jams. It has already shown to have created a lot interest in the editor and the custom maps made in FC 4.

Oh wow thank you so much! I don't know what to say! Congrats to the other winners and all who participated, there really were so many solid maps out there, I think this whole Map Jam idea is becoming an excellent way to spark up the community and help people get involved and find fellow mappers as well as get well earned exposure! There is so much creativity in the Farcry community, and it is a real honor to see my map receive so much love. Thank you!

Devs, is there anything you need from me/what do I do now?

Congrats to the winners! I have seen and lost to some great maps. Looking at Heavy Metal for best narrative! Congrats very clever intro! I was really trying for best narrative with my map 'The Rock' For the pc I had Sanctuary or Vengeance pegged as the best graphic winners. Vengeance won best narrative so Congrats to Setho great job! I did not see a video for the PC winner for best graphics. I am really curious! Because it beat out some really crazy good looking maps!

I highly recommend taking a look at it! I almost fell off my chair the first time I saw it. The graphics are absolutely breathtaking.
So far the map in question been played 15 times, added to favorites 0 times, and the average rating is 1/5 stars.

Also bit suprised by some choices, ah well cant win em all. Thought freedom would way in more. Hope next contest its all bit more clear it what the conditions are. Theme freedom was too vague

I'll have to get fallen to do a map swapper for this one

I had played most of the top-rated PC maps prior to the judging. This one was player-rated so poorly that I decided not to bother. I'm also not a fan of hunt maps. But when the winners were announced, I had to check it out. Visually, it has some nice features (its name is fitting) but I didn't see anything special. Certainly wasn't in any danger of falling off my chair. IMO, the other PC winners were stronger visually (and their game play was also excellent), and I really liked several non-winners. It would be interesting to know the basis for this choice. I must not understand what the judges are looking for in this category. I thought they made excellent choices otherwise. Anyway, congrats to all the winners.

Looks like I forgot to include the /s to indicate sarcasm as it didn't come through strongly enough. I'm also curious to hear what exactly the judges were looking for in the graphics category.

Here's a video of me completing the map "MJ2-SerenityLake" by CapnRobm (MJ2 PC Best Graphics):

It should be clear why the developers decided to pick this map.

10-21-2017, 06:31 PM
Wow, there must be some kind of mistake?!?!? how could this have won!? Not bad but the lake is not very interesting, very little effort on texture detail, some effort on the start point, gas station, and cave, but MJ2-SANCTUARY (PC) (Alpha_sgt_14) has so many amazing custom objects that this map does not have... in fact from the videos I have seen this is the lowest effort map for PC, it makes sense now why it was so low rated. I am very let down by their choice here and I am not on the PC! My apologies to the creator, but this is not worthy of a win not even close. Every other choice for winner I can see, maybe not fully agree with, but I can understand why they choose what they choose. This is very disappointing. I may not even bother entering the next contest,... :/. Thanks for posting this video.

Ok, sorry I have been a bit incognito for the last week. Stupid work has me working all late n crap. Anyways, has anyone heard anything about the honorable mentioned list? I just looking around for it and didn't see anything. I just thought after a week we might have seen something. I'm a bit curious what they thought of some maps like cupcake's Japanese masterpiece and Nates huge castle. Well, and my map I guess if it makes the list too.

The maps you mentioned and several more that I thought were very worthy. Your map should have made the list at least, baffled by their choice for best graphics pc. I worked very hard on the narrative for my map 'The Rock'. Be nice to have some feedback... I haven't even mapped that much since, feedback would be motivating...

Oh, don't let this get you down man. Though, truthfully I have not mapped much either but I guess for different reasons. Your right, there were a lot of awesome maps that didn't make the cut. I guess that's what a contest is tho ;)

I never had the chance to play the rock but I got to see some videos of it. Great job man :).

I'll keep an eye out for the list. It seems kind of quiet though. Maybe an update from the devs or something? Or news on mj3. #mj3 haha

I received my prizes from the first map jam last week. Thanks. I was wondering if there is going to be a honorable mention list like the first map jam. I know the Devs are busy with the new game coming out but it would be nice.. Some maps I thought were more suited to win than others. So I am curious as to why some won and why some did not make it. I am almost done making videos of all the winners. Should be done this weekend. Congrats to all the participants.
