Quote from Harvatos: Go
For the terraining contest
I think the format for entries should be like this: -The entries are SC2 maps (not a screenshot or a video) -The maps does not need to be playable (No needs of minerals, playable areas, etc) -There is no fog of war in the maps (so you can see everything) -Units and buildings are not allowed in the maps -The maps should be relatively small but not TOO small (you can leave a patch of terrain blank around if you like) -No trigger (except possibly for the no fog thing) -The camera should be limited to default (No custom or first person) -Limited usage of custom models is allowed but not evaluated
That the idea. Tell me what you think about it. I think a contest like this would improve the quality of maps in generals.
Oh and sorry, I said I would post my terrain work but I'm kinda lazy today. Maybe I work on it tonight. Shame I deleted all my old melee maps...
Nice trying to flesh out the details of the possible future contest, but I disagree a bit. I don't think there is a need for more requirements than a general theme. The way you choose to display the map, the pictures you take of it so to speak, are integral to the way you decide to design the terrain. So I would say that the actual contest would be "which screenshot/scene of a map you made is the best looking". Your rules would better fit a contest about the best looking melee map.
