Map-Off ✖Treme
Hosted by Zeffy and Destiny Demon
Map-Off ✖Treme
Want to enter the PCX's Map-Off?

Well thanks for the interest! The biannual map-off, which is hosted around summer and winter (in this case, summer although it's specially in the fall this time) is where mappers all come together in the ultimate contest: to make an e✖traordinary game map which will be judged by Zeffy and myself. Anyone can join! Game developers, ROM hackers, or maybe you just like mapping in your free time. Any program can be used for this event, whether it be RMXP, Advance Map, Paint, etc. Be creative! That's all we ask.

Remember that you are allowed to submit your map from September 24th (the day PCX officially starts) until September 30th, 11:59 PM EST. With only me and Zeffy to judge the maps, the judging process should take fairly quickly, so don't worry, we will get the results up shortly. After that, emblems will be handed out, yah yah yah, and BAM, we'll see you at the Holiday Map-Off. (:

Must Read: Rules
These are very simple rules that must be followed!

→ In-game maps only, meaning no world maps or anything of the sort.
→ The map you submit has to be created by yourself.
→ No special effects may be added to your map (this doesn't include static overworlds).
→ Custom tiles are obviously permitted! Just be sure to give credits (and have permission).
→ No stealing, please! You'll be disqualified if you rip someone else's map.
→ You must use the submission format listed below to post your entry.

Judging System
Well, it would be pretty foolish not to tell you guys how we're judging your maps. I mean, you want it to be e✖traordinary, correct?

• Layout/Design (possibility of 10 points)
• Playability (possibility of 10 points)
• Mapping Errors (possibility of 10 points)
• Correspondence with theme (possibility of 5 bonus points)

PLEASE READ! Okay, as it is the PCX, there is an optional theme you may choose to add when creating your map. If so desired, with the creativity of your minds, you can create a map that in ANY way corresponds with the theme: What does PCX mean to you? This could mean X, the number 10, PokeCommunity, etc. Make your map creative! As it is optional, you may get a possible extra five points added to your map score!

Well I get something, right?
Well yeah, it wouldn't be the map-off without it! There will be four emblems given out. Everyone who joins will get the Participant emblem, and the three winners will receive an additional emblem! Want to look at the emblems? Well we'll show you guys later, no worries. ^^

Okay, I'm ready to post my map!
Yes! Thanks for contributing to this event! Here, submit your post in this format and you're good to go:

Map Title: (Here you put the name of your map.)
Does it correspond with the optional theme? (Yes/No)
Description: (Here you describe what your map is about--and how it corresponds to the theme, if it applies to you.)

Does it correspond with the optional theme? Yes.

Map Title: Route 10
Does it correspond with the optional theme? Possibly. I chose it because "x" is ten in Roman Numerals.
Description: Just a simple route you pass through going from one twon to the next. My first real try at a "playable" map.

This thread is just so lively, ain't it? I'm kinda surprised given the turnout for previous map-off threads...

Updated showcase!

The planned ending date is tomorrow at 11:59 PM EST (basically midnight of October 1st), but I can always extend the date if anyone wishes to enter after then. :)

Map Title: "Forêt Clairsemée"
Does it correspond with the optional theme? Yes
Description: Like a river in rocks, Pokécommunity has made a way through the internet. This is what I wanted to represent on this map. The name, which mean "Sparse Forest", represent also the forum. As a sparse forest regroups a lot of distants trees, Pokécommunity regroups differents subjects that have all a common point.

PS: Sorry if i don't upload the map with spoilers, I don't have the needed number of posts to send URL.

Map Title: Oceanside Manor
Does it correspond with the optional theme? No
Description: Although it doesn't correspond with the get together itself, the Oceanside Manor map does correspond to my thoughts of PC. I consider PC a home and a place of leisure, which is exactly what this small map is.

Updated showcase. For those of you who still want to enter, I'm probably not gonna start judging maps with Zeffy (plus Zeff needs to judge Design-a-Pokemon also) until October 1st/2nd at 5 GMT -5 due to school and stuff. Message me in advance if you want to enter just to be sure.

But don't worry results will be in before October 7th, that's a have-to, haha. ^___^

Okay, after so long the judging is complete (mostly my fault, since I was busy with so much other stuff).

The winner is: sab's Route 10!

The runner-up is: P-Sign's Cycling Road!

There won't be a second runner-up this time around, sorry. But it truly was a close competition this time around. Hope you all enjoyed the Get-Together, ya ya ya, and hopefully we can spark more activity next time. 'Kay bye!

Oh yeah Zeffy has to submit the emblems, but don't worry, you guys will get it.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 2:18 AM.
