Code:
Best Mapping: 
Best Scripting: 
Most Graphical Appeal: 
Best Story Line:

Most Engaging Hack: 
Overall Favourite:
The explanations of each category are as follows:
Best Mapping - The hack with the best maps
Best Scripting - The hack whose scripts impressed you the most
Most Graphical Appeal - The hack with the best overall visual presentation
Best Story Line - The hack with the best plot/story line
Best Gameplay - The hack with the best features and that was the most fun to play

A hack gets one point for every category in which you vote for it. To demonstrate this, here is an example of a vote:

Quote:
Originally Posted by Example Vote
Best Mapping: Genesis
Best Scripting: Prism
Most Graphical Appeal: Liquid Ocean
Best Storyline: Prism
Best Gameplay: Sienna
Most Engaging Hack: Life of Guardians
Overall Favourite: Prism
In this demonstration, Prism has three votes while Genesis, Liquid Ocean, Sienna and Life of Guardians hold one vote each.

The three hacks which have the most votes overall, regardless of the categories in which the votes are allocated, will progress to the second and final round where they will be judged by long-standing members of the community for the ultimate Hack of the Year title. In addition, the hack which has the most votes in a single category for this initial round will be awarded with a corresponding title (e.g. Best Mapping).

You have until January 1st to submit your votes. So now all of that is sorted, let the voting begin!

Best Mapping: Victory Fire by Wind. To tell the truth, most maps I've seen in hacks tend to be either rehashes or just don't stand out. LP does have good mapping, but it is far too linear. Wind's maps are developed and less linear.

Best Scripting:
Liquid Crystal by LaZ. Excellent usage of ASM such as Red Gyarados and Ruins of Alph. Overall best programming, one of the few hacks here that is bug-free and has unique ASM.

Most Graphical Appeal:
Light Platinum by Wesley. Best tiles, hands down. Wesley did a great job in making LP seem like a 4th gen game, especially with the limit capabilities of GBA software.

Best Story Line: Snakewood by Cutlerine. Cutlerine's hack does what no other hack has ever done, add a proper and enthralling storyline to a Pokemon game. Not to mention this is one of the few hacks that use an advanced level of English.

Best Gameplay: Quartz by Baro. Call me crazy, but despite how his fakemon are considered to be downright ridiculous, Baro created one of the most highly innovative hacks in PC. I mean, who else here has made a 100% fakemon hack?

Most Engaging Hack: Liquid Crystal by LaZ. At first I thought it would have been another meh-ish remake. But to tell the truth, this hack has a lot more to offer than a simple GSC remake. Snakewood would have come first, but re-using Hoenn is sort of a turn-off.

Overall Favourite:
Liquid Crystal by LaZ. It's not just a remake, aside from offering three vastly improved regions and buffing up Crystal's storyline, Liquid Crystal improves the gameplay experience via the Physica/Special split.

Of the hacks I've played (not too many, but a fair share), LC stand out most for me. I voted it to the categories I feel it stands out most.

No other hack really engaged me much, so I'll stick voting on LC.
