I waited to 17:59:59 my time (Koontz deadline for the Last One contest) to submit the list of maps. I found them few days earlier, but as Koontz said, the first answer was in 4-5 days ago, so for two medals it had to be sent 1 second before the deadline :)

Honestly guys, now that you have found the place and have been around, I hope you stay as well and help the map makers out. This was fun and lots of medals have been handed out, but for things like this to continue, an upturn in players, helpers, commentators on maps needs to go up. betiko, you are a frigging colonel with nearly 5000 games played. Surely you can help out with game play. If you see something not to your liking, get in there and point it out to the map maker. And if they do not see it your way, bitch about it. dakky, same goes for you. But with you, you have proven some skill with graphics over the last two contests. I hope you enter the main one but even if you do not, hang around and comment on the maps. We all have something to bring to the table and the more that come, the better our maps are.

People are making maps I hope. I know of three maps. Hoping at least one carto hops on board and a couple more. Would be nice to see at least 5 maps in the end for judging.

putting the parameters first and loud
and making sure everyone it is now a mapmaking competition

Postby macbone on Mon Jun 10, 2013 10:46 pm

I'm looking forward to seeing these maps, but if we don't get a workable one, is it possible to commission a mapmaker to make it using the parameters decided in the polls? I have very little ability in map design, and I don't know who all is working on maps, but I for one would like to see the winning map have the appeal of a Pelopponesian war or a Stalingrad (not similar gameplay, of course, but with the potential to achieve the same level of popularity).

Yes, we will get a map out of this. But if none of the contest maps get made in the end, someone will step in and take over the drawing. After we have a winner, that map will then be allowed time in the foundry. If it fails, second map comes in, if that fails third map comes in. So on and so on.

As for being popular, that can only come down to what comes into the contest and how much feedback the map maker gets when in the foundry.

I'm working on a map, but I'm wondering if we could make it a truly collaborative effort and recruit a team of artists to polish the final product? Hand out some GA or GC medals? I have fun with Photoshop and get lots of map ideas, but when it comes down to drawing a Dragon or an orc, I'm out of my league...

This is why I said the cartos will offer all reasonable help. They can point you in the right direction, but you need to do the work.

As you are using photoshop, most of the cartos use it so any guidance you need to polish it of can be given. Some of the best tutorials on the web can be found on youtube and the cartographers guild.

Koontz, it'd be cool if some of the maps that don't win also go through the Foundry. It was fun for the community to participate in this map-making, and I hope we see more of these in the future. =)

They all will. The winning map from the voting stage will be allowed the foundry to it self for a while. As soon as it looks like it will go into play, the others will be allowed to be worked on without restrictions (competition guidelines). This is because if the original winning map stalls (per foundry guidelines), second place map will become the winning map.

No prizes will be awarded till the winning map gets into beta stage. That could be first, second or even third place map. Out of the 5, most are made by brand new makers.
