I have several questions regarding the contest. I was going to jsut PM Keyogi but I figured that others might want to know the answers as well.

1) Do we need to provide 100% complete maps?
2) Do we need to provide both large and small versions?
3) Do we need XML?
4) After the deadline, will the vote determine the winner or several maps for final work.
5) If the voting picks one winner, will the normal foundry process take place to better refine and finally quench the map or will the winning map be quenched like it is?

Lets make some good maps Only 11 days left!

Thanks

To answer WidowMakers questions:

1) I'm not sure what you mean by a 100% complete map, but the more complete your map looks the better your chances of getting votes.
2) No, one or the other will do.
3) No.
4) The vote will determine the winner.
5) The winning map will continue through development like any other map, I would think it unfair otherwise.

The participants of the competition will remain anonymous until voting has closed. This will ensure no preference is given to a particular cartographer, just the map on its own merits. If any signature's are visible on a map, I will blur these out myself before posting.

Map A for sure. Too bad no one is allowed to add add some rivers or mountains... *some* sort of barriers would be nice on this map.

Map A is definately the best, although D isn't too far behind.

Judging by the styles of the maps, if these two members created maps, I bet D was Keyogi's and A was Widowmakers (2 of the Best Map Makers we have!)

Well done to everyone, and thanks for participating!

map A and B were close for me, but A just looked more professional to me, and props for that dotted border line, just gives me a feeling of high quality visual appeal. B was a close contender but A all the way.

i think A is also widowmakers.

but i really think some needs to look at the XML for the borders of dien bein phu, and hua phan

i see the 4 way border was solved in the same way by all the cartographers. was it a special request or is it just a coincidence?

I do believe that, in order to have understandable and clear game play, each cartographer was advised to clear up the four way borders, as no maps should have them.

Since the map is going to FF after the vote, I'll assume we'll find out who the winning cartographer will be, but will we find out the losers as well? I'm impressed by the effort put into all the maps, and I think everyone should be recognized for their effort.

I feel really stupid for asking, but which four way border are we talking about? I know it's off topic, but it's bugging me that I don't know where it was (and I looked on the current map and didn't see what you were talking about).
Thanks :D

My vote is "A" - And It really looks like someone drew all those water edge dots by hand (err.. mouse?). That must have taken forever, but the outcome is fantastic. Well done.

i think we'll find out who they are.

i'm actually curious about the C map. the rest of the authors i know but C really has me wondering because i don't recognize a particular style. :?

#-o Thank you. lol.

I think that Map C may be Unit_2 and pepperonibread. Since I have never seen their work, I don't know, but I know that they previously showed an interest in revampin Indochina (and even had a thread for a day). :lol:
