read rule #2, above... to maintain annonymity you don't actually post anything, you just send a link to your file to either me or andy (depending on which competition) and we will post the files annonymously, hosting the files using a neutral account.

I doubt it's a problem - the fact that he's had to repeat it renforces it for the reader.

Indeed - as people ask questions it points out what areas I need to go back and clarify. I've already added a note about whether or not a quenched XML writer is a amateur or not.

Is there a preference on whether we submit a large or small version?

could you show us the "middle earth" map?
It'd make this a ton easier for me. attacking lines are really annoying for me to convert back into regular territories.

I imagine either would be fine, but if in doubt, go for the small first.

The links in the Map Development thread no longer work... the only thing I can suggest is to ask a couple of people who put videos together for the 100 maps celebration to see if any of them have a copy saved somewhere?

I think the idea was that without really a background or anything, you could form the image around the current centrescape map.

my problem was more with translating the attack lines into territory borders. borders are much easier for me to work with.

Hmm, to put everybody on an even playing field I think I shouldn't... some folks may not be working in photoshop.

I think this is a good decision. I work in Photoshop, and while a PSD file might be handy, it also circumvents some of the process, and so could give an unfair advantage. I'm sure everyone will be able to come up with something in the time though, and I look forward to seeing what everyone else creates

I don't think you can participate in Central America as you already have a quenched map ;)

Not sure Zeak counts - as he's not made GFX before...

As much as I would call that I could possibly enter both - I've never done GFX before - but have multiple quenched maps!?

(Not that I'm going to - as my GFX Sucks - although I might be able to come up with a theme for Centrescape)
