    My map would use custom object and trigger data. Is that allowed?

    Mine will probily be other, seeing you are able to select your 'mode' at the start.

    Such as :

    Hero Defence
    Tournement
    FFA

    and such

    So no custom trigger data. Optimizing is also illegal then, I guess. Depends on how good you are too open maps ^^

    No you can protect your map its just if you do you have to send an unprotected one as well. Also if anyone's map if over 10 mb and can not be atached to a email use this site to email me the map.

    Yeah, i'll join in too.
    My map is called Space Hulk®, based off the boad game made by Games Workshop.
    The name of all units, items and the map itself are copyright and/or trademarks of Games Workshop Ltd. And I have no permission to make the map, it is a fan-made map in hopes of returning Space Hulk to it's former glory. ^^ (always add legal stuff)


    w00t! i'm a noob.

    It won the Origins Award in 1989 for Best Fantasy or Science Fiction Boardgame. And yes, it's 40k based.

    There is no such thing as wc3 map protecting. What if I send you a editor that can open it? ^^

    Well if you sent me an editor that can open protected maps I would greatly apreciate it.
     
  17. Hmm, I should have an RPG to enter or something, assuming i don't get bogged down with homework...

    shouldn't "Network Friendly" be a criteria, seeing as how you can't host maps on battle.net that are over a certain size, and even then i dunno how many people are willing to wait and download... just a thought

    Good, i'll add you

    well first of all maps that are larger then 4mb will only be singleplayer maps. Any multiplayer map over 4mb needs some series work. Also I won't be going into battle.net and letting anyone join. The Jury will all be emailed the map first and the game will be private.

    Hello

    Is it too late to join the competition? Because I just found out about this and I want in.

    I don't know what kind of map I'm making yet. It will be either a tower defence, an AoS or a campaign. I'll tell you when I have decided.

    A question: Does the map have to be brand new? Because I have a tons of unfinished maps that just needs an excuse to be completed.
