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!

It would be nice to judge this but I have no idea what the judge is supposed to do.

That is the unfortunate things about contests they can fizzle out at the end.

A long-long time ago I said I'd join as a third judge in case nobody does so.

So, if the judging deadline isn't too deadly, I'm a volunteer. Niko?

Is Dean still in? I though he left.

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

Niko, do you have the entries? I didn't receive any of them so far.


As a sidenote, if Nikokol doesn't seem to be coming back soon, entrants, I guess you can send the maps to me (bbalazsmail@gmail.com) and I'll relay them to Andrea Rosa too. This way the whole thing won't be down to nothing.

Just to say that I'm still available for this, so I'll stand by for submissions.

Hey BBalazs, did you get my e-mail concerning emulation? I got no further reply from you, just wondering...

Strange, I did send a reply. Oh well, e-mail was never meant to be reliable. Actually, it might just be the SMTP of my ISP, because it's happened to multiple e-mail servers I used before, that an e-mail I sent never arrived.

That is why for important stuff I always use the feedback option, which sends me an e-mail once the message I sent actually arrived.

Whatever the case - thank you again for your help, I managed to get everything working, and I even sent everything to the person in question as a present. Thanks again


As for the contest, we will now have to hear from the entrants, as I don't have any of the submissions (obviously). The best would be the return of Niko, though.
