    Wait, so judging will be based only on its aesthetic value, not its gameplay? :unsure:

    Indeed, this 'mini-mapping' contest isnt one of gameplay but of detailing ability.

    Only eye candy, gameplay would be hard to judge on a scale like this.

    To answer the other question, you don't have to be able to get in the buildings, but they have to be life size (if you walk trough it everything should be in proportion)

    Nooo, i'm like so close to getting Avanti out, don't give me a distraction!!

    edit:
    Is it jugded by a single screen shot or the "environment" as a whole? Not that you need to be able to walk around in it but, a single screen shot may not show you the whole extent of the map..

    Am I allowed to use cliffs and such in the mini-map? I know it's all about the building, but say there's something on top of the cliff that's connected to the building...would I be allowed to do that?

    Yes , you can use environments to give your building more character. Look at my example, that's how I have it in mind a bit, it's not really 1 standalone building but its good too.
    (That's why I kinda rushed that example so you would think further than just build 1)

    Just to verify:
    The deadline is midnight (12PM) GMT on September 9th?

    I think that would make it 4PM PST (7PM EST) on September 9th for those of us on the other side of the pond?

    Thanks!

    This should be another challenging competition!

    I just hope to hit closer to the mark this time around. ;)

    Sorry to be a little bitch, but is there any chance we can get the size restriction to be more flexible? By which I mean, as long as the area adds up to 1024 x 2048 it's a valid entry. Y'know? Because such a thin rectangle is not optimal for every entry :D

    Where are we supposed to upload our entries? In the map area? In the models area?

    Maybe we can get a download area for contest submissions? :D
