As much as we may joke about it,  over the years the communtiy fell in love with this mission. There is even a Mines Appreciation Page !


Therefore, the theme of the contest is to answer the question of...


What is behind the spooky Hall of Mirrors (HOM) wall in the second room of the mission?



The Contest Rules

You must submit a custom mission of your own creation that adheres to the following rules. 

  1. You need to answer the question outlined in the contest. What is behind the Hall of Mirrors (HOM) in the Mines mission?
  2. You have to preserve the Mines Geometry and  Objects including the Spawn Point and the Death Star Plans   (You can however, alter the geometry after the mission starts with scripting). 
  3. You can add as many objectives as you wish, but you must preserve the original one. 
  4. You do  NOT  need to create a mission briefing (i.e. - NO LFDs required)
  5. You must submit the mission GOB to DF-21.net with the author template filled out --> Author Template
  6. Your submission must be turned by midnight on November 30th 2022 EST -->  Here
  7. Most importantly - USE YOUR IMAGINATION AND HAVE FUN !


The Contest Prize

The winning map of the contest will be judged by our Discord users with the Member role. The highest voted on map will receive the Dark Trooper Attack Lego Set !

The Lego Set will be shipped to the author's address (even to Australia) after the winner is announced. 

Important Note: DF-21 Staff cannot win the prize. If a staff's submission wins, the prize will be awarded to the second most votes.
