Congratulations to everyone who took part in the Compact Comp, It was an awesome competition and SO many great layouts came out of it!
Remember to have a look on the Steam Workshop to try them all out for yourself!

But without further ado, here are the winners!

I'll be getting into contact with all the winners to discuss the prizes, and I'll be adding the new props & freight wagon into the game after the new year, as there is already lots planned for before Christmas!

Now, there is one more thing that needs to be mentioned. You might have noticed that Joas "The Sabotage" map actually received the most votes (over 6x as many votes as any other map for that matter). Unfortunately this was clearly a popularity influence, as 90% of the votes were from people who don't even own Rolling Line.
I was hoping that leaving the voting up to the public would work out fine, but asking for votes through Facebook from people who aren't even involved in the community really goes against the spirit of the competition.

So sadly "The Sabotage" wasn't included in the winners, but it has it's own special award:

I might try out some other kinds of voting methods in the future to see what works best, but either way there are certainly going to be more competitions in the future!

I'll be posting some "honorable mentions" over on Twitter over the next couple of days, since there were so many clever and creative maps made for this comp, and there are still tons of maps I want to give shout-outs to!

But that's not all, there's a winter-themed snow plows update coming in just a few days! Plus even more after that in time for Christmas. Lots to look forward to!
