    yeah soz oftopic but no thats not the answer, the question was should i remake the spell, or will it just look like i copyed it as i desire to achive same effect, so yes if i decide (hopefully with someones {helpfull} opinion) to just opy i would give full crediyt, but ATM its just inspiration

    It's always better to credit someone than to not credit them at all. Even if they barely helped, it's a way to avoid arguments.

    your preaching to the converted

    OFC , theres no debate about that , for a start i can hardly debate thqat i imported some sounds off his map ,

    to try and rephraze myself clearer

    i was wonderung if i sould bother working out and triggering the effects that he has done for the points in the competition ^^ (thats why it here) or if that would look like i had just Ctrl+C ed his work and therefore i would get no points

    option A , i work it out and do it myself (possibly look like Ctrl+C)
    option B , i Ctrl+C and defeat any chance of getting marks for the spell ......

    Even if you re-did the entire spell it's still HIS SPELL. I mean if I was a judge I would not give you any points for it.

    There may be a circuimstance where you create a spell and later find out that there is a very similar spell in some map or another, but that would be different.

    I hope that no1 will recieve points based on one spell.
    And even if someone does use someone's spell, its all about how do those spells fit into the game.
    It can be Oh-Wow beautifull with 99999 special effects and originality, but if it doesnt fit the game, than whats the point of using it?

    Eye candy. Unfortunatly alot of people are easily distracted by flaming and shiney objects and effects, more than the plot. Some people are like children, "OH SHINEY ORB OF RAY DEATH, THIS MAP IS THE BEST"

    What a world we live in.

    Ok well this is starting to get really off-topic. Ok if you use someone else's spell in your map or pretty much copy someone else's spell then I won't be giving any points for the spell.

    Ok now everyone start posting screenshots of their maps again!

    I, Jedi §layer and Hamster Hunter wish to join the competition. The map's name is Return to Heaven, and it is a RPG type of map.

    ok its offical, sign me and VGRaptor as partners.

    Our mapname is : Outcast: Survival of the fittest

    Overview: Here is the idea so far (This is a work in progress and we havent started the map yet, because i havent discussed it into much detail with FGRaptor the idea could completly change, but this is the concept that I have so far)

    I am also posting this here because i want to show FG a map overview i made, but image shack wont work so i cant PM him the map (darn it).

    Storyline (Work in progress): Its the wonderful age of exploration! A ship of great explorers sets out to find the new world! Too bad columbus beat them to it, and they got no where near the "new world". They instead ran into a fierce storm, which set them horribly off course and washed them ashore a small island. Ahead of them was a much bigger island! Even from where they would look at it, its resources looked enourmous, mineral rich mountains, dense jungles full of fruit and crops. And extremly fertile soil excellent for the use of agriculture. This was a treasure! But who would claim it? Who will it be named after? These questions turned the Outcasts against each other, they paired up and decided to head out to the island each on their own... but their greed will be their purpose to fight... as they pit out against each other for domination of the island... Only one Outcast will rule..Who will it be? (actually 2, because its teams of 2, but One sounds better)


    Features (Also a work in progress):

    -Of course you cant fight a war alone, you need an army! No problem, there are some local natives there to drive into your war machine. Too bad not all of them are friendly, some will be easy to tame, but those are the weak. The strong are greedy, and demand something in return...

    -Man power is great, but sometimes you need something more. After some exploration you will find that there are 3 Shrines in the island, many gods appeal to the natives, but these 3 seem to be the most popular. Taking control of the shrine will give you favour of the people who follow it. A Nature God, Water God, And Fire God... perhaps the gods will give you something to aid you spread their name...perhaps...but who believes in such things, you are a noble explorer... It sounds foolish...but perhaps...

    -Gifts from the gods will surely aid you... but what about the gods themselves, legends speak of 3 power stones... might be an advantage if they are so sought after. Fight for possesion of all 3 stones... and then reap the rewards.

    -Native spears and traps only? Surely there must be some salvage to be made from the shipwreck...



    This is so far a concept that i have slightly discussed with FGRaptor, so this complete idea might change alot (To an extent). This is just a concept i have developed and thought i might share with everyone.


    Attached is a quick map overview concept that i made in paint. It shows some important landmarks, and a taste of how the map might look.

    Edit: there should be some green lines indicating the ruins are blocked too.

    To end off topicness, the whole point is its something that fits to the extreme the style of the map, and because of my work rate i have put to find a way of aciving the basic output of the spell as one of my objectives to be done if i find time, but by chance i came across the spell i wanted anyway.

    i was pondering over nwheather to just copy the spell or if i sould try and do it myself, after reading all that ^^ ive decided to just copy the spell letter for letter and give full credit to author , xx-tricky or saomeone

    You should know to stop when he said stop. I suggest these posts get recycled.

    Methinks you are the same person, just 2 different accounts, seeing as you have the same post count and both posted nearly exactly the name thing.

    Its the same person, its so obvious, both their post counts are 1, and they posted the same exact thing. Wtf? Do you read each others mind.

    They should be investigated before they are let in! INTERROGATE THEM!

    U know, he could just copy paste his friends massage to make clear that they are a team.
    However, the weird thing is, they both has only 1 !! postcount when they joinded the contest. So they BOTH werent even members before this contest. Thats strange
