5 MINUTE MAP RE-CREATION CONTEST FOR PLAINS OF SNOW AKA POS!
« on: November 24, 2017, 08:04:24 PM »
MAP RE-CREATION CONTEST FOR PLAINS OF SNOW AKA POS

Winner by public vote gets 5  :peon:. (*EDIT* TuPaC has generously offered a bonus cash prize of $25 to the winner of this contest as well!) ENTRY DEADLINE JANUARY 6, 2018

1. You are limited to 5 minutes to re-create the Plains of Snow BNE map using Warcraft II Map Editor. The 5 minute time is for designing the layout of the map, the trees and gold mines. AFTER the 5 minutes, you have unlimited time to add 8 peons and 8 starting positions and adjust gold mine amounts

2. The .pud is the only requirement to enter.

3. I would request that those who are able also submit the SS picture of the entire map using Lamby's SS Grabber (find it here: http://forum.war2.ru/index.php?topic=3057.0). If you don't know how to do this, I am willing to talk you through the process, as are probably a number of others, but if you don't know how, and can't find anyone to help you, I will do it for you. In that case, just submit the .pud.

4. Winner will be determined by public vote.

5. Streaming is not necessary (to allow non-streamers to enter as well).

6. You must re-create the map from memory and not refer to the original map once you have begun the creation process in Map Editor.

7. Entries must be received by JANUARY 6, 2018. Entries submitted after the deadline will not be valid. You may begin submitting entries starting right now.

8. The winning map will be used in a PEON :peon: CONTEST POS RE-CREATION WINNING ENTRY FFA MATCH on January 27, 2018 3 PM EDT for further opportunity to collect :peon:.

HAVE FUN! :)

sounds great! i really like these war2-themed contests, they're so fun & promote community interest/engagement. nice of you to sponsor too Tupac! :thumbsup:

2 questions -

1. is it allowed to scrutinize POS at length in map editor immediately prior to the map recreation? :D
2. is it required to record the map creation process somehow (even if not streamed) ?

ok here's mine



This back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
Two more hours to go
Yes, it's keeping me alive doin' nine to five
And I ain't got nothin to show
Pretty soon I'll be leavin'
With the wages I'm receivin'
But I know it's gonna be all right
Come on, babe, and take me away
We got some money to spend tonight

Pick me up at the station
Meet me at the train
Have a meal and a shower and a change of clothes
I can't afford a vacation
But I can take the strain
Long as I can be with you
Find a way to burn it as quickly as I earn it

Yes, it's back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
Two more hours to go
Seven long years for the same corporation
And I ain't got nothin' to show
And tonight when I'm leavin' I'll be just breakin' even
But I know it's gonna be all right
I SHAKE OFF MY BLUES when you put on your shoes
We got some money to spend tonight

Oh, I don't wanna stand here and sound accusin'
Everybody does their share of losin'
If I'm gonna lose it I might as well be doin' it right

Pick me up at the station
Meet me at the train
Have a meal and a shower and a change of clothes
I can't afford a vacation
But I can take the strain
Long as I can be with you
FIND A WAY TO BURN IT AS QUICKLY AS I EARN IT!

Yes, it's back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
Two more hours to go
Yes, it's keepin' me alive doin' nine to five
And I ain't got nothin' to show
And TONIGHT when I'm leavin' I'll be JUST BREAKIN' EVEN
But I know it's gonna be all right
Come on, babe, take me away
We got some money to spend tonight
Come on, baaaaabe, and taaaaaake me awaaaaaay
We got some money to spend toniiiiiiiiight!

4 more days to enter this one. You can earn :peon: for the :peon: collection contest ending June 30, 2018, the winner of which will receive $100 USD via Paypal.

In addition, Tupac has sponsored a BONUS $25 CASH for the winner of this map contest.

You can make a map in 10 seconds and enter it if you want. There's a time limit of 5 minutes, but you don't have to use all of it and we are just gonna trust you not to exceed your time.

Peons, start positions, and gold mine amounts can be done AFTER the 5 minutes for the map.
