    Yes, you may use enhancing systems as long they don't do the major part of your coding job.

    It could mean bloat.

    In general, yes, length usually means more effort. But as you can see in the judging criteria - it isn't a factor for judging.

    You can not judge script by it's size. His script involves lot of line breaks for readability and comments for description. Actuall code size is much much lower. Whatmore, it often happens, that system/spell should not really be large, in case usually algorithm could be simplified.

    If we do judge via code size..
    Let me find ma trash text generator. I do hope that 1mln lines will be enough for me to win.

    I agree Tank made quite a nice spell however it shouldn't win due to size alone, the amount of skill he has kind of makes the effort seem a bit lower. The only effort I saw was the idea and the creation, not the size. No offense or jealousy intended.

    You guys are forgetting the others entries which are well done as well. Besides currently his spell only fires once or the victims die unless u kite/move around far enough away to re-set the aura debuff. =P Coolest thing I think was how he added terrain level/cliff damage.

    Absolutely, it would be frustrating for everybody I think if that was a primary factor in winning regardless of which entry won

    That's rather flattering, though I would say I did put a lot of effort into it, I pulled a double all-nighter to get it all done that fast XD

    Indeed, as I've said earlier I think the contest is more evenly matched than some of you are giving credit for it being - some of those entries have some very cool and unique effects

    Edit: for anybody who cares, when I remove ALL commenting and Linespacing turning it into a solid brick wall of code, the lines of code go from 1432 -> 594 making the commenting and readability lines about 60% of the code (this includes things like the readme)

    Ah, sorry. Make sure to double-check that code then. :grin: When your tired you can sometimes slack on some area's of coding/triggering. Good to see that you did spend a lot of time and effort into it. :thumbs_up:

    The WIP thing is no big deal, moyack. Just write a few lines, take a pic & then upload it. Or just place a few guys; just to show "progress". :p
