Ok, so, Knorke didn't address some very serious issues with his theme. The most of which being that someone using the original mother's mapconv will have vastly different filesizes from someone using Beherith's mapconv, as will someone using Spring Map Edit or L3DT.

With that in mind, I stuck with the spirit of the competition and used Beherith's MapConv, which yields larger filesizes, but is pretty much all around better.

Map without SSMF is 2.8mb. With SSMF it is 7.8mb (the splat texture is 4mb and doesn't compress well).

What I have linked on springfiles, is with SSMF, as I feel that this competition is semi-worthless if not using the latest methods and trying to minify them.

This also acts as a nice demo as to the HUGE difference that SSMF makes.
