    Back to business. The next Challenge can take place. Here's a poll for dates in August. In any case it will be from 8pm to 8pm (UTC+2) of the next day.

    This will be the 4th round and as already previously mentioned, there are rule changes:

    • The amount of needed key words is reduced to 1 (from 2). There will still be 2 key words to choose from.
    • You may revive and continue one of the entries of your own you did in an earlier Challenge. The conditions are that you are not currently working on the project and that you insert/match the key word criteria of the current round.
    • As you may have presumed from the changed time range, the Challenge no longer overlaps with the Funmap Evening. Infact, there is one hour break time in between.

    Genre pool for this round (from which 2 will be rolled):

    aeon
    arena

    capture the flag
    survival
    escape
    footmen wars

    misc
    rpg/adventure
    tower defense


    Update: Poll ended. The 4th round of the Challenge will be held from 15th to 16th August 8pm to 8pm (UTC+2). Here is an online countdown timer.

    If you roll cool genres (like RPG) i might actually participate :)

    This means im allowed to recycle old projects, as i didnt open the world editor for months .. ? I mean its not a contest, so creating cool maps is more important than 100% standing to the rules, right?

    Projects which you entered in the Challenge before. The idea is just that those are not abandoned. Gives more of a motivation than being dedicated to a single round.

    You know i never participated in a Challenge before ^_°

    But since you are allowed to import any resource you want its just a matter of how you define "resource"...

    Hell yeah! :ogre_haosis:

    I think this aspect is quite open. The goal is just to have something playable after the given time.
    From my point of view it depends on the amount of "old" resources your conscience let you use.
    You are simply missing the point of this contest if you just post one of your current maps which you are working on instead of starting from zero.

    oooh!

    so all you do is start making a map (within the conditions) when the timer runs out for fun and then after 24 hours release what you've got for just pure fun!?!?! : D

    sounds like fun, i'm in!!!

    Since WaterKnight is currently not able to post the rolled results to this Thread, even though this Challenge starts in 10 minutes, I will post it temporarely for him:

    Rolled Genres:
    • Survival
    • Escape

    Rolled Keywords:
    • Eruption/Birth
    • Hate/Love

    This is the new Countdown that indicates the end of the Challenge (24 hours from now).

    1 hour after that, the funmap-evening will take place, where we will test all entries (if possible).

    Have fun and create some good entries!

    Thanks, I was online but could not properly post from this device, so I relayed the info to Frotty. The partial co-relation of the keywords is coincidence but as you are hinted by "eruption", "birth" encloses more than sexual reproduction. I have already some vague ideas of what I could build.

    Good luck, have fun!

    edit: Please refer to this timer for the correct UTC+2 offset.
