    Hiveworkshop Speed Mapping Contest


    [​IMG]

    Rules and Guidelines
    - All that is required of you is to make any map within today (March 21st) to next Sunday (March 29th).
    - No restrictions on map size, ressources to be used or map type. I suggest you keep it under 4mb.
    - Maps must be made specifically for this contest. NO PREVIOUS WORK CAN BE USED.
    - No teams.
    - The only thing that does NOT have to be made by you is ressources: models, icons, skins and spells/systems.
    - Give credits for every ressource.
    - Only one map. I shouldn't have to say this.


    All in all, have fun. Don't forget to upload a preview image along with your map. There will be a public vote and a judging round to determine the winner. I suggest you think simple, short and sweet in terms of gameplay.

    Rep Prizes have yet to be decided, though they should be the same as any other contest, possibly the mapping ones. I was pretty much thinking along the lines of this:

    Prizes
    1st Place : 45 Rep and award icon
    2nd Place: 30 Rep
    3rd Place: 15 Rep


    Contest will end on Sunday, March 29th at 12:00 PM EST. There is a possibility of extension if the amount of entries is insufficient.

    First time hosting a contest, so have some mercy. Also, judges can be decided on later or, preferrably, now.

    Good luck.

    1 question. Does requesting Loading Screen/Map preview from other user are consider as teamwork?

    This is the terrain I work out in about 2 hour after this contest started.

    Couple pointers WILL.
    1) Post in the Mod's lobby first. I can move it for you.
    2) Use a template, they're win.

    I'd say no. The loadscreen/map preview isn't part of what's being judged, I'd assume, so that's okay. It may benefit the public vote (people like nice-looking things) but not the judges' scores.

    1) Most people in the contest submission thread asked for it this weekend. In any case this isn't too dramatic is it? I'll do that in the future.
    2) Alrighty.

    I don't think anyone will mind if you use another ressource as long as you give credits. This includes map previews/loading screens.

    Yeah, it was probably a good idea to just get it up quick WILL, but for next time, use the mods lobby.

    It would be a challenge for me ^_^..

    I will probably stop updating my map for now and create the cinematic..

    I think I'll base it on a Praise and Worship song that I like (so this will probably be over 4MB)
