    Maybe Lordkoon can make the poll in the Contest Submission forum, since it was his idea :cute: It would be good to at least see which one people want more.

    That should be up to Pharaoh to decide. If he wants to make it. I see more people wanting the farming.

    Aero cinematic with premade begining isn't much more open either.
    In the farming theme things could go from farming gold,gems,oils,materials to farming souls with the grim reaper mini-game(lol) , farming dots with a pacman styled system oriented game, heck even farming coins with Tickles' style of making 2d maps Super Mario in warcraft game. We will just remove the 'Harvest Moon'-alike requirement and make it even more open to interpretations

    Okay, the cinematic mini-contest would be hosted to refresh the interest over cinematics and with a premade beginning and/or a duration of 2-5 minutes, it wouldn't be hard.

    The prepared scene could be manipulated as follows:
    • You could use it in the beginning of your cinematic.
    • You could use it in the end of your cinematic.
    • You could use it as a scene in your cinematic.
    • You could not use it at all.

    Basically, it will be given to save some of the time that users who are busy with real life could hardly get. Additionally, it could potentially inspire the contestant.

    If most of you want Farming, then this is what it is going to be. ;]

    Great judging Lordkoon can't get much better then that. You are pretty much all right with my entry, although I did make a loading screen although appeared to bug quite badly for some reason but did show most of the image for me. Wasn't entirely sure about how it would effect others computers. :\
    And yeh my map after lot's of modding ended up being more of an experiment map for my mapping skills to improve, and yet yeh I see the flaws even on the terrain of how to make it more look like a dungeon and I have done this with a for now personal version and looks like a really well built dungeon now.
    My map will be released eventualy in the map development forum for extra ideas from the public. :)
    --
    If the theme where to be cinematic I would love for the host to build a part of the cinematic for contestants to build around(with keeping the main idea and dialog from the scene although with the choice of modding the terrain for that scene).
    This would be a great contest to see what great ideas every contestant would have with the inspiration from the same idea... Or so.

    Edit: Oh yes and if the next mapping contest is desperate for a judge I would consider judging if I don't enter it!
