Can I have a confirmation as to what the rule is about having people on the map please? I'm asking because the winning map from the previous round had people, so I'm a bit confused...

^ This, especially given the fact that the theme involves a town scene. Thankfully not a whole town, though....

Best to not put in character sprites. Obviously you can use sprites that are for objects (like chests/torches, etc.)

There is nothing in the rules against the use of characters sprites, just a recommendation, I guess.

I would also like some clarity on it to be honest. I didn't add any as per your post, but that ended up giving a weird vibe to my map apparently.
I'm fine either way, I just want the rule to be clearer than it currently is. :)

Personally I think it distracts from the creativity time and effort put into the map, but I guess an empty town might give a wrong vibe/feeling in some cases. I think the idea is not to create a scenario, but a map so if too much action gets added that might muddle the judging a bit.

How do I take a screenshot that includes events of the doors? Would it be better if I just add the doors to the tileset?

Use windows screenshot on a playtest of your game and then import that screenshot into an art program (I use GIMP but I don't know what you have available to you.)

I didn't realize that you could use the Community_Basics plugin to fix the resolution size. It was taking me a little bit to figure how to properly take the screenshot in-game.

By home town does it mean like a typical starting village in RPGs or could it be our own interpretation of the term "home town" (for example: a dark street, in space, in some weird realm of oblivion etc,...) ?

Any reasonable interpretation of the theme is fine. The point of the themes is to be broad enough that people can do a lot of different stuff with them.

All but 4 entries are in. I sent a PM reminder to the 4 contestants I have not received a map from yet. If you did not receive a PM reminder, I have your map.

Deadline is tonight everyone! Thanks.
