Second Widelands Map Contest: "Over the sea"

Discussion starter

As you can see on the right side (under "Important Dates"), we are slowly approaching our next official release Build 18. Therefore I updated my last post to reflect our currently very active development. Build 18 will contain quite a lot of improvements, bug fixes and new features including an improved graphic system, improved ingame help, better text rendering, automatic soldier handling in trainingsites as well as automatic soldier exchange to put better trained soldiers to the front, improved window management, ..., ..., (a lot more), and seafaring expeditions.

The last one is one reason (out of a handful) why we start a new map contest - we simply do not have enough high quality maps that support seafaring :).

The map contest "Over the sea"

The Widelands development team are pleased to announce their second map contest. The theme of this contest is "Over the sea". Entries are invited from all Widelands players. Use your creativity in designing original new maps, and compete for the grand prize! We hope this contest will result in many new maps for the official Widelands distribution. Even if your entry doesn't win a prize, if its good enough, it's likely we'll include it in our next official release. To make sure this is possible, all submissions must be licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2.

Submissions will be accepted from now until 11th August 2013. When all the submissions are in, a jury¹ will choose up to ten finalists. The community will then vote to decide the final winners. We hope to provide some modest prizes for the top ranked entries; so far we have two Widelands t-shirts for the winners. If you'd like to help us by contributing a prize, please contact Nasenbaer

The complete contest rules can be found on the contest page

¹ = members are listed in "RULES AND REGULATIONS" on the contest page
