That's right, folks! It's time for another mapping/screenshot contest. So, dust off those fingers and get to creating!

This time around, we've got a little twist for you... Your map must include a visual resource you created from scratch - a tile, object or character. This resource must be at least 32x32 pixels in size, and must be posted separately under the map.

RULES:

- Entry map must be in RPG Maker VX-Ace default size - 544x416 pixels. You may use any RPG Maker editor, or an art program for parallax maps.

- Entry map must include one visual resource created from scratch, at least 32x32 pixels and also posted separately under the map.

- One original entry per person. Don't recycle old screenshots of existing maps.

- You may use any theme/area you'd like. Bonus points will be given to those of you who have a unique theme.

- You may use any resources that are available for RPG Maker use, as long they are credited with the author's name and link to their page. No ripped content allowed!

- You may edit your entry as much as you'd like, but please remove the older versions. Your final version should be identified via text.

JUDGING:

- Judging will be done by a few of our wonderful staff members.

- Judges will be looking for creativity, functionality and good use of resources.

PRIZES:

- 3rd place will receive a resource pack of their choice.

- 2nd place will receive two resource packs of their choice.

- 1st place will receive RPG Maker of their choice, plus two resource packs.

- A secret winner will win a secret!

Lastly, there will be a random draw and 5 lucky participants will receive 10$ in forum store credit.

DEADLINE:

- All entries must be in by Thursday, July 31st @ 11PM GMT.

Ooh, the requirement of an original resource...? This one will be difficult, but I think I have an idea.

Quick check: Is it a maximum of one custom resource?

Would animated water count?  The cliff edge it's going up to is an edit, but the water is mine.

@romoku:


No, they need to be created by you personally (so, pixel art in an art program) and not by a character generator. :)

Well, it's a mapping contest, so you might not want to obscure the map with text. But if you really need to show a message box, sure. :)

Anyone else find themselves skipping through spoken dialogue in games if they've finished reading said dialogue in the textbox? I do. Happens more often in JRPGs with me. I frequently finish reading the dialogue long before the VA is done speaking.
I've been pretty busy working on my Might and Magic inspired project. I've got the code for instructors in place, and I just finished up with the trap and resistance tests. The project is going very smoothly. I'm also learning more about Javascript which is helping out a lot. Arrays, they are your best friend!
Did some animated message faces. But why not animate menu faces too?

Confession: I don't know how to make a custom intro screen. I've tried a plugin, but I want...something more. Something dynamic!
