    It's only request not more than 20 doodads? WHOA CHALLENGING Contest...

    Can I ask?:
    Is there any required map size?

    Is the Path Blocker is counted?

    P.S. Sorry for my bad English :)

    I think you only need to post a screenshot of your final work not the map.

    You must post at least one WIP (Work In Progress) and the final entry.

    No requirements on map-size, it'd be quite dumb to do so, as you are not required to submit the map.

    And pathing blockers do not count, as they are invisible, the rules state that only 20 doodads can be visible,
    excluding lighting and fog.

    Not that I get why you would want to have pathing blockers in a scenic terrain, though.

    Hmm, enough of designing red-fire hell inferno map. =D. Maybe I should give this a try:

    Hehehe, I'm only thinking about it.
    And by the way, this quote:
    So you mean, no need to send a MAP but an IMAGE is enough? I don't know how to process out ....

    P.S. Sorry for my bad ENGLISH XD

    Alright, Sunday night is going to end soon and I'll be busy again for another 5 days. Before that, I would like to point a few things out tho:

    I am confused (partly it's my first time joining a contest), "excluding lighting and fog" should have a boundary or something. I mean, does fog include:
    • terrain fog
    • global weather - dungeon fog (including blue, green and red fog, as well as "heavy" and "light")
    • global weather - wind (heavy), outland wind (heavy) and outland wind (light)
    • eerie fog (UTM) ---> are these generic fog?
    • fog (UTM) ---> and these too?
    • blighted mist ---> it's kinda like fog, I guess?
    • disease cloud ---> also a type of fog too?
    • cloud (dragonhawk's ability) ---> it's an ability effect, but does it count as well?
    • smoke smudge ---> ???
    • bubbles steam ---> ???
    • magical glowing runes ---> if you enlarge them, they are like sparkling fogs too!
    Or, to put it simply, a fog is some effect/doodad that partly clouds the vision of an audience?


    *_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-*-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-*

    WIP #4
    Not much change from WIP #3, just added eerie fog for fun (yet to be reviewed) It's a GIF file btw.

    Yes to all.

    e.g. what would add to your total doodad count in your entry so far are mushrooms, lanterns, torches, fairies, Medivh, rocks, crystals, arches and windows etc.

    All material things, basically.

    I love this! In my opinion, the lightnings can be moved higher up or add more storm clouds so that its beginning cannot be seen, otherwise it looks like it came out of nowhere. Well, I hope it's a WIP, cuz I can see a lot of potentials to add in.

    Can't wait to see more!

    Shit am I feeling rusty. Anyway, here's a WIP.

    Let's see if I can make something worthwhile.

    Does stars count as doodads or lighting?

    Dreamboat! Lovely! I intended to do this at first, but I don't have the confidence. Good job!

    Yeah, I think the rules must be a bit clear on 'fogs and lights'.

    Seems like a nice contest to partake in that doesn't demand a lot of time.

    Can units be used in the scene, and i assume they'd count towards the doodad limit?
