Featured Map: The Private Psychedelic Reel by Brttrx

Thumbnail of the map 'The Private Psychedelic Reel'

When I look back on the years I spent here, and I search back through all the old maps, old authors - Races and puzzles and adventures from another age... I remember everybody. I see their names and I remember my favourites from them. I remember that one time I did a collab and probably pushed my ideas forward too hard, or not enough. I remember eventually feeling like I knew everything about race maps.

I remember Brttrx throwing everything I thought I knew into a furnace. I remember The Private Psychedelic Reel. I remember it opening my eyes.

Thanks to all that participated and to Tempus for judging. Now everybody can go and make maps for parttwo. :^)


NUMACon: Part Two

I know that the Hellidays maps haven't been judged yet, but that's because I am currently travelling and unable to spend much time sorting it out. However, I am working on it and the results will come. For now, I thought we could stack up my duties with another contest to judge!

NUMACon: Part Two
This NUMACon is called Part Two. You must create a map that is a sequel to another map, it may help if the chosen map is well known. Your goal is to have your map resemble the other map’s style, concepts, and visuals without copying them exactly. Post your maps with the tag ‘parttwo’ to enter them into the contest. Every mapper can post up to 3 maps! Happy mapping!
Posting Dates: April 12 to June 1



i would just like to say merry christmas and happy holidays, and a happy soon-to-be new year, from me to you

stay golden

The future of NUMA: Reviews and other stuff

Alright, now that NUMA is back, I would like to get reviews back going on an as regularly as possible - preferably one a day, but I know that that's (probably) not realistic.

All active reviewers will remain on the roster for the time being, and I'd ask you to please claim a couple of dates - let's say a minimum of two a month, that sound good? - on this spreadsheet [].

If anybody else wishes to become a reviewer, please PM me with two sample reviews along with links to the maps that they are for. I can't really guarantee anything, but given the vacancies we have, your chances are pretty good of becoming a member of the review team.

Other than that, NUMA has been working pretty smoothly for me so far, but if you find any errors persisting, don't hesitate to contact either any of us admins (that's me, DaggaFork and sunset at the moment) or Tempus_Fugit (who's brother is the hero that managed to return NUMA to functionality) - we can all be reached either by comments on our maps or via the forums.

Happy mapping, and once again, welcome back!

Haunt Results & NUMACON: Happy Hellidays!

Congratulations to macrohenry [] for his Haunt win! His map Trick or Trick took the win in a unanimous vote from all three judges! Thank you everyone (all 4 of you) for the amazing submissions. The maps can be played here on the forum. []


This December through January is the Holiday NUMACON. This year submissions should be difficult maps with a holiday theme. You can submit maps to the Happy Hellidays forum post [] or to the Happy Hellidays reddit thread []. Submissions must be in before the end of January. There is no limit to submitted maps. If you would like to be a judge for this or any NUMACON in the future send me a PM on the forums. Merry mapping!

The New NUMA Subreddt

NUMA has been dead for a while and map sharing has been slow on the forums. In an effort to revive the mapping community somewhat, we have decided to try a different way of sharing maps that, unlike the forums, offers a better way of directly commenting on maps and interacting with other mappers and, thus, I present:

The NUMA Subreddit []

If you are still an active mapper and just itching to share maps, runs on maps or just to engage in discussion or dish out compliments for other well-made maps, head over there and join us in our efforts to keep this community alive despite any technical issues plaguing this site.

I'll see you over there!


Reminder that you can still share maps with others!

Posted:2015-10-12 will take you to the forum thread. As of this post, there was a map posted there three days ago, with a demo on said map posted since. Is it ideal? Hell no, and I'm just as sad as the rest of you that it's come to this. But for those of you who want to keep mapping, this is surely better than quitting entirely. And I'm not making any promises, and I know it's been a struggle for a while, but who knows? Hopefully we can figure something out.

Traverse Results & HallowCON: Haunt

Here are the winners for Traverse! Thanks to everybody for mapping, and to fingersonthefrets and lifdoff for judging with me!

0: Soul-juicer by Tempus_Fugit []
1: Sama Sama by Yahoozy []
2: TVC15 by Sunset []
3: no hell below us by Sunset []

Congratulations to the winners!


This October's HallowCON is called Haunt! It is not to be confused with that other recent contest with a very similar name. The theme for the contest is spooky Halloween maps, as usual. Be sure to tag any entries with haunt []. The judges for this month will be Tempus_Fugit, blacklef, and myself. The deadline for submissions is November 1st, and each user can submit up to 3 maps!

Since NUMA isn't allowing map submissions at the moment, post your submissions to this forum thread [].

If you would like to be a judge in the future, please message me on the forums!
