Pretty Town Contest 2007

This is the pretty town contest for 2007. In this contest you have to make a village, a city or a town on a map, which is good looking. The tester has to see all the city. You can add slums and nearby villages, as well as different tilesets. No gameplay but you may include a story, a bitmap and everything you like, but remember - no gameplay. There must be no .cty files and no mods (except the enhanced editor). Your city can either be historical (Like Athens and Babylon for example) or fictional. The maps must be in SCN/SCX format.

You can :

-Use Language/x.dlls, .AIs and .PERS.
-No restrictions in the tileset/colour (Of course, the city must not be owned by the player). You can either place units (which must be blocked) to make sure the player sees the city or you can instruct the player to type no fog/reveal map.
-Make teams as long as you tell me.
-Use AoE or RoR.
-Add villagers and units to make a city active and bustling metropolis (recommended and rewardable).

You can not:

-Use .CTY files.
-Add gameplay, dynamics or battles.
-Use mods or utilities other than the Enhanced Editor.

Categories

These are the rating categories. You can take up to 5 points for each one.

Buildings - The logical placement, the color (because the civs buildings look better with different colors), arrangement, creativity and amount of buildings.

Terrain - The placement of terrain and/or terrain features. Does it fit with the overall scheme? Or it was just randomly placed.

Beauty - This is a tilt. Are there enough eye-candies? Does the city look realistic? Is it creative?

Note

Include a notepad file for the important things - name of the city, historical or fiction and other notes. Files must be compressed in a ZIP file and sent to me (nikokol(at)abv(dot)bg).

I hope this will work and good luck to all!

Heh, if there's one kind of contest I'd really like to join it's a Pretty Town one. Especially for AoE since no such contest has been held before. It's something in which I can fully express myself to the limit (well, there are no limits actually, only a possible lag factor maybe ). I could know, I've won the first AoMH pretty town cinematic contest back in 2003

I won't join though. I won't have enough time as I'm quite busy with updating articles and working on the TD webby.

I think we should save the first (official?) Pretty Town Contest for a later time (2008?). It's held too soon after previous contest (the results aren't even announced yet!), and the 2 month period is very short as well. We should have a proper sign-up first before designing begins, so everyone has the same amount of time to work on their scenario's.

I've added you, Dean. You all can start working on your projects too. As for you, Phatty, it seems that there are a few people who want to join the contest (I was inspired by the one which you started long ago). Not everyone is busy but I'm sad that a master designer like you doesn't want to join the contest.

I would like to sign up but I think I have to give it a miss. Currently I have too much work to do trying to get this contest done and what not to be spending time in the scenario design. Then of course there is TD forums which I make sure are kept clean and tidy.

A scenario that can be described creative for its objectives is the one that by typing "die die die" you will be defeated.

You should take a look to the last one. It is even better! Still though i hesitate to do this. you see map designing is not my strong point.
EDITED:I think i'll tell you tomorrow morning

I remember that topic, it didn't got much interest sadly

I really do want to join, and I've had a retought on all this. Sign me up, I'll try to create something although I'm not sure wether I'm able to finish my entry in time. Simply said: I don't want to miss out on the first AoEH Pretty Town Contest... I do hope we get some more entries too this time

I wouldn't call myself a master designer, I have yet to unleash my full potential. I haven't released many works yet and they are all older stuff...

After updating TD and this contest this I will return to my DOTAW campaign and try to update it with the new Enhanced Editor.

Wow! Didn't expect so much interest! G1ggy, Beefy, Phatty and fruktfisk, you are in now. Andrea, you are one of the judges. I decided to extend the deadline with a month and now 10 contestants can enter the tournament. Good luck!

@Beefy - Yes, dlls are allowed.

P.S. Don't announce your projects now!

If you mean a team, yes, the teams are allowed, as long as the team submits a single entry.
