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!

I just realized that someone will need to collect scenarios and reviews before they get sent to who they need to go to and since Phill isn't here right now I think I'll give it a shot.

I am surprised we've never run a pretty town contest in 10 years. I vaguely remember the closest we ever came was the n00biest campaign contest.

Speaking of which...

I'd go for lemon pie myself
Well you know, pie is technically not cake. It's pie. Like pizza? That's a pie. Not a "saucecake" (ugh) mind you, that just sounds strange.

I'm starting mine, it's coming along fairly well...

Hm I might sign up for this one.

Any spec on how big the map must be?

I may be insane taking on the likes of PF, but oh well.

No, you can make it on gigantic or even microscopic map.

3 Months is quite a tight deadline.

But I'll see what I can do. It would be nice for me to enter a contest properly, if RL allows.

I'm currently making up some ideas on how my town should look, trying a bit of different things with the terrain option.

LOL I don't think I'll be taking it that seriously. Kinda a free-range effect I'll have...

Just as long as it looks nice.

Although, I do have a marvellous vision in my head of something... just putting it together is tricky.

I usually can make up something dandy in my head, but for some reason once it's on the map it doesn't look as good...

I'm currently searching some scenarios to find well-crafted cities on which I will take a screenshot and post for an example.

I also look forward to the results. Is there any time that the entries close at all? If it is still open I might take a shot at is sometime but I'll make no promises after all I have some things of much more importance to work on coming up.

But this might help me with my final scenario for TGGA.

If you don't have a 3rd judge by October I'll hop in as one. I'm not sure how much time will I have on my hands though (just starting at uni) - so consider this as a 'last resort' possibility.
