    I'm fairly certain that no one will be using the Winter Tiles DLC for this contest. ;)

    I'm trying to think of a way to use it just to be a contrarian, but you're probably right.

    Regardless, it is part of the discount which is a "good steal" for it to be used in other rmmv projects. :)

    Good luck to all participants!

    People like to eat ice cream during the summer right? Perhaps someone could do something pertaining to ice cream or have a theme of sorts pointing in that direction that they can build involving ice cream with the winter set? Haha just "food for thought". :D

    Hmm... I like these mapping challenges. But will we really get a badge this time? 'cause I'm still waiting for the trophy promised to all participants in the Love Mapping Contest over a year ago!

    I'll look into this (I didn't run that contest).

    As for this one, I can guarantee that it will get done.

    Nowhere in the Rules does it specify which country it has to be in.
    Summer in Antarctica still has plenty of snow.

    Okay, I read the rules and had a quick question: can you use characters in as a tile? I was wondering... NOTE: About the love contest, I had completely forgotten about the trophy, myself... =^_^= I can't believe it's been a year, though.

    Does the "fair use" in the DLC tiles cover these activities, or do we have to go line by line in every EULA?

    (edit: awesome sale!)

    @Touchfuzzy Thank you for the clarification, and even though I wasn't here a year ago, I'm glad to see you taking the bull by it's horns.

    If it allows parallax, then wouldn't that be a regular screenshot from the game, or did that just mean backgrounds?

    Quick question. It says don't edit the exported image, but if it's a parallax, can we make edits while working on it? (This is probably an extremely stupid question.)

    The parallax mapping feature can be used to create a parallax for the map. Full parallaxed maps are not allowed.
