Sometimes in order to have certain items in a wad, other items need to be reduced or changed in some form. Anyway, the uzis are the same as the ones in the Back to Basics Greece wad. They look perfectly fine :)

I'll provide proper feedback when I finish all the levels, but I'd just like to make an early note regarding the coins as a key. Not sure how I feel about them because of the 'invisible' keylock. I've already seen two different uses for it so far, and neither was exactly a clear indicator that something could 'go' in there. Ok, one had a lenghty flyby to show where they were supposed to be used, but even then you had to take two steps back to hit the right spot...

I also found the coins in Lara Croft and the Forty Thieves but completely missed its slot, though I obviously spotted the flautist sitting in a corner in the hideout. Maybe I didn't take enough steps backwards? Oh well.

Does anyone know when the competition ends? It was originally June 1st, two months ahead of the starting time. So is it June 17th now?

I have another general query regarding the wad. The notes for The Temple of the Venerables state this:
- Lara can pull some large carpet, but you must find the correct position to let her grasp the rug.
I have never identified said large carpet so it might have been there for a secret only. I assume it's a clever SAS bloke or maybe even a trapdoor replacement, but was just wondering if anyone could show me what it looks like so I can keep my eyes peeled in future raids? TIA :)

Is this a Bug from the Editor? It is in the Level "A Perfume from Ispahan"

I've seen a similar bug before - in Mr XY's Waterfall Valley Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYYiNbKd3NA. Note that in that, Lara automatically bugs up to the upper floor, without having to climb through it. Perhaps it could be caused by the builder applying toggle opacity to the upper side of the portal and toggle opacity 2 to the lower side. :think:

I certainly hope so, or at least I hope that some of the builders that couldn't make it in time for the competition still work on their levels and release them at a later date. Every level (with no exception) was beautiful, a true testament to the excellent building assets. And on top of that, what a delightful selection of audio tracks. Excellent work! Thank you and congratulations to everyone involved! :2thumbsup:

Thanks eRIC, curiously enough I don't think I saw this in any level lol. I mean, I definitely spotted it in Finding Aladdin, but it had a completely different purpose there... ;)

Mentioned that to the builder after testing...I think that if you dont use Ctrl you can just jump through if you stand on a high enough part of the floor

They are indeed amazing. :2thumbsup: My favourite object is the animating camel - it's so cute! :D I just finished 'Before the Afterglow' yesterday, and in that, you have to take the sugar bowl from in front of the camel and give it to the horse. The camel looked so sad - I wanted to apologise for stealing its sugar. :lol:
