    Oh, definitely going to use imports as well. In my opinion, do whatever you can to make it look exceptional. When people don't use imports, it's because they think they're too good to use them. If Da Vinci had used a rock rather than a brush to paint the Mona Lisa, just to prove he was the best, i doubt itd look as good. v_v

    Please don't use mis-representative analogies, they completely nullify the entire point of whatever it was you were saying. It would be more appropriate if you likened the standard paint brush Da Vinci had that came with his canvas to an imported, high-quality, camel-fur paint brush made for the Pharoahs in Egypt.

    Not really, you may do whatever you want with your map, as long as it has a playable pathing map(see first post for details).

    I find it difficult to covey the contest theme.

    Basically make a landscape in the world editor. This ladscape cannot be 2-D like most terrain contests, but must be fully walkable, and completely terrained.

    With 2d, do you mean that you have to use blizzard cliffs to make it 3d? Or do you mean just increasing the height level of the ground. Like hills and stuff.

    By 3d I think he means that all the stuff you create gotta be pretty and wisible from all angles.
    In a 2d or terrain picture the angle you look in it looks pretty, but if you you turn the camera around you find absolutely nothing because it Aint visible or hidde nbehind things, but in 3d everything would have to be

    Perfectly fine. As long as they are present in the UTM, you can have them in the map you submit.

    Also terranexx, I would suggest smoothing out your pointy hills. If they are mountains, they are small, and you should put pathing blockers there. I would suggest more rocks, and definitely use some more height variation.
