Every week we bring you a sample of our favorite community games, levels and assets. Today: paul8558's Outpost 31 from the movie "The Thing".

User 'paul8558' is yet another great example on how practice and hard work really help you improve! His first levels were forest scenes with lush vegetation, but only using the Sandbox's assets. Now he's ready to move forward and created this really cool recreation of one of the snowy exteriors from the super excellent John Carpenter film, "The Thing".

But the highlight of this level in particular, is that he created all his assets using our built-in Designer Tool! A tool that allows users to make high quality assets from scratch without ever leaving the sandbox. From a blown up helicopter, to MacReady's shack (we said the movie was great, but John Carpenter is not the most creative with names), even all snow-covered placeholder barrels were created in the Sandbox.

For more screenshots and the progress of his level, or to give him well deserved feedback, go to his forum thread here. We think he's doing an awesome job so far.

Thanks for reading!

All the best,
