    1: Would a fully themed Frontline town be ok for the city/town themed?
    2: Would the capture area for Player Destruction count as an objective?

    Yes to both of those questions; city/town is any community that would hold people, and capture areas are any physical objective (except in payload / race where the track also counts as the objective because the cart travels along it).

    Would an asymmetrical KOTH map be weird? Or more importantly against the rules?

    More questions i want to get out of the way:


    Is passtime allowed?

    If so would a pass jack be an objective?

    Is SD Allowed?

    Asym koth would be weird but is not disallowed, and the only standard mode not allowed is Mann vs Machine so both SD and Pass are allowed (the 'objective' in Pass would be the jack spawn point or the goal; your choice).

    Day should be replaced with Day/Sunrise and Night should be replace with Night/Sunset so mappers can make maps that take place during those times of the day.

    You can do sunrise or sunset:
    Day / Night

    Some maps are clearly in the middle of the day while others are set at night. However, times like dawn and dusk may straddle the line between day and night that isn’t particularly clear where these maps may fall.

    To answer this question for yourself, ask this: Is your map primarily lit by the sun, or by artificial lights? If daylight (direct or ambient) is the primary means by which your map is lit, then it’s daytime. If your map is primarily lit by artificial lights, then it’s night.

    For example, while Granary uses lots of artificial lighting to brighten the map, this is only done in the shadows where the daylight doesn’t hit. The map is bright enough where the daylight alone hits, and therefore the map would be classified as daytime. If the sun was lower in the sky and casting less light, requiring everything to be lit artificially, then it would be classified as nighttime.\

    If you want to build an entirely interior map with no visible sky, you do not need to fulfill the daytime/nighttime requirement, although it is not advisable to do so.

    I Have another question, Sorry if you are getting annoyed. But are custom gamemodes or slightly tweaked gamemodes allowed?

    Give that document a read, it contains lots of important information, including the following:
    If your map has a custom gamemode that cannot fall under one of these categories, please contact a staff member.

    I saw some people already going for this, but I have ideas and I want to give it a try too !
    Good luck !
    I might do a video coverage of the process, do I put it int the "map factory" section ?

    You press Add Download in the Downloads section, which will create a post in Map Factory also (there is no Create button in Map Factory).

    I don't know how the hell I'm going to do this, but I guess that's what makes it fun.
