BTW what did you mean by "maps must be functional"? cause I was thinking of using events for my map to be interactive but then I saw a note where we can't do anything with it besides mapping
Its mostly just making sure you cant walk through walls or whatever, so the maps work as well as look good; it was just an idea batted around while the staff were brainstorming the competition and I decided to include it. While there wont be any penalty for including a couple of events if they look necessary, I brought it up so that entrants wouldn't try to win over the judges with cutscenes and complex events or distract from the true criteria of the comp; mapping ability. So yeah, interactivity isn't really what we're looking for, but its your map at the end of the day. Its simply that the extra work in that area wont be recognised.
Anyways, good luck and I'll add you to the list =]
