Re: Contest Thread: The Uncharted Wellsprings

@scaperdude , I agree. I love the hexagon shape of the map and it looks really fun.

Re: Contest Thread: The Uncharted Wellsprings

Yeah, I've made a few hex shaped boards over the years and have always liked the idea of having a grid of hexes in the shape of a large hex.

Re: Contest Thread: The Uncharted Wellsprings

Plus, hex shaped maps have the potential to be modular

Re: Contest Thread: The Uncharted Wellsprings

That could be kind of fun to do. Create a bunch of small hex shaped maps that could be assembled into many different large maps using any combo of 7 of them.

*edit* Not trying to derail the contest discussion at all here but I just wanted to make an update should anyone else start thinking about this idea. After playing around in VS, I've found that it looks like a 6 sided hex board is the smallest practical starting point due to the 24 hex pieces having one 6 hex edge. 7 of those sized boards would be a little too big to be practical, but 4 of them could work. I put together 6 different 6 hex edged bases using one of every master set (RotV, SotM, BftU), you can then build up from each base in slightly different configurations, mixing and matching any 4 of those while rotating each one could quickly give you a lot of different maps to play around on. Fun to think about.

Re: Contest Thread: The Uncharted Wellsprings

TOP 10 MAPS
Alright everyone, the Top 10 are here. We just have to say we are super impressed with everyone's submissions. This was our greatest turnout yet for our contests, and again we've had a heck of a time evaluating these fun and exciting maps. Well done to all.
Without further ado...here are the Top 10!!

VOTE HERE!

Now What?
Go and vote! You're allowed 3 votes of your favorite maps. Your votes will be public, so we will know if anyone is spamming the poll. If we see that you've voted over your allotted 3 votes, ALL your votes will be null and void. Lets keep it clean people. The poll will be open for 1 week after which the winning map will be announced and the prize of TREX's Handmade Dice Bowl will be awarded.

The Top 10 choices have been deemed as the most balanced and thematic. These Top 10 will be played in our local tournament next weekend. They will also be playtested by us judges to determine whether or not they are balanced enough for tournament play. We will give our reviews and vote based off of our findings. For those of you who did not make the Top 10, please utilize the WORKSHOP THREAD which we have set up for those needing assistance with their maps. This is a place you can go and have your maps reworked with the help of the judges and potentially resubmitted for the judges to playtest for tournament worthiness.

Again great work everyone, and congratulations to @Herofly @Robber @vvildeyedjoker @Nomad @Dr.Goomonkey @rednax @heroscaper2010 @All Your Pie and @NecroBlade ...
MAY THE BEST MAP WIN!!

Re: Contest Thread: The Uncharted Wellsprings

@Dr.Goomonkey or anyone else, do you have a pdf of your map (Burning Temple) that you can upload? I have a Mac and can't open the .hsc file on it.

Ahh, sorry! I got the author right but the map wrong. I needed Dr.G's Wasted Swampland map. Thanks for the quick response, though! And Sir H is working on the .pdf for me, so we're good now! Sorry for the confusion!

Re: Contest Thread: The Uncharted Wellsprings

Do you just want the picture of it, such as is now found in the Contest Poll OP? If so, there that is. Or in my maps thread I have a picture of the real thing. If anybody is interested in an online map of my map, here's that too. I'm currently making other top-ten maps (not sideways maybe ).

Re: Contest Thread: The Uncharted Wellsprings

Hey, glad you figured out how to do online boards! Looks good! I would recommend turning the table off (Configuration --> Preferences --> Uncheck the display table box) and then rotating the image before you upload it. Oh, and there's no need to use the level 1 tiles, even for the half-height ones. I know they're in the file I gave you, but it looks cleaner to just assume all unmarked tiles are level 1. Otherwise, everything looks great.

Thanks! Yeah, turning off the table sounds like a good idea. I also think two of the water tiles are going to trade places with a couple of the swampwater tiles, the glyph may be a bit too good for fliers as is. There's a workshop phase before any maps become official ARV maps, right?

Thanks for showing me the ropes! [plug superfrog for anybody else wanting to learn how to make online maps]

Re: Contest Thread: The Uncharted Wellsprings

Yeah. All the top ten will get playtesting to determine if they are tournament worthy. Some of them will need slight tweaks to get them there. Overall a good batch of maps.
