    Please vote only if you're interested in joining.

    Lone Element: Choose one element from the selection to base your scene around.
    Dualism: Combine two elements from the selection to base your scene around. They must be visually distinctive from each other.


    Fire
    Frost
    Lightning
    Nature
    Water

    The element choices will be few to encourage direct competition.

    The elements may be colored as the entrant wishes.

    I'm not sure if I am gonna participate or not, but i think Dualism has much more potential, i believe having only 1 element may be a little bit monotone (probably is possible to make it interesting, but then it requires the same head-breaking to do an acceptable terrain by 1 element than an excellent one on dualism)

    I like dualism, having a single element/theme for a map leads to less terrain diversity and makes it harder to create an interesting composition, imho. I would certainly like to join, btw.

    Will lightning be strictly lightning, or can lightning be for example air?

    because air is invisible most of the times unless in some sort of fog fumes and steam sources.

    Fog, fumes, steam, tornadoes, hurricanes and so on.

    Also, am I allowed to retexture models as long as the textures are publicly available?

    Am I also allowed to edit models (delete/change geosets)?

    1- yes, but:
    Offsite-imports may be used in the map, if and only if
    • They are fully credited.
    • They are public resources and a link is provided.
    • They were made before the contest launch date.
    • However certain resources might get approved by the contest's host or judge(s).
    2- geosets? explain me more

    you use an external program, like a model editor correct?
    I think models must be used as they were uploaded and or use skins .
    but edition may be considered as a form of new models use. afaik

    Strictly lightning.

    You may make edits, as long as you post the resulting models in the thread.
