Texturing mini contest #1: cursors

Not open for further replies.
Just a little idea I had that could be fun. Cursors are easy and fun to make and don't take much time, but are really useful to map makers. A little contest to get more of them seemed like a good idea to me.. (I'd like to join this contest if it is approved, so I'd rather not host if that disqualifies me from entering the contest.)






Participants have to create a cursor. That's all.


  • No submission may violate any Hive Workshop site rules.
  • If a submission does not follow the skin submission rules the creator will be disqualified.
  • Your submission must be posted before the deadline. The post containing your final submission must also contain the following:
    • An in game screenshot showing your submission in action.
    • The file in the appropriate format.
  • You must show at least one unfinished preview of your submission, before the deadline, as proof that it’s yours.
  • The cursor must be made specifically for the contest. No previous works are allowed.
  • The non-hand parts in the cursor texture do not have to be edited, so the cursor can blend in with the ingame cursors. You are, of course, allowed to retexture everything though.
  • Judges may not participate in the contest.


  • First Place: 15 reputation points and your entry on the award icon
