Sure, if you can make a map of it, it will qualify.
I am stuck with my map at home and no computer, and I won't be able to access it until Friday evening, is it too much of a stretch for the end of the posts, or can I post it when I can access it ?
Do you mean a week from now? It's currently Saturday morning here, and the contest entry period should be another 48 hours or so. Based on the number of entries received so far, I don't expect to extend this round.
Excuse me, but in Map of Fortnight, which section should I go for the cards, please, because I can not find andI always fall on Map of Fortnite, I do not know if that's it? Thank you.
@Kaiphranos Ow, too bad, but I understand (on my time zone it's Sat. afternoon )
It's a monthly contest. This round is almost over (in two days) but you can participate to next one. The maps are in places called "entry threads" you can find them by looking in this part of the forum searching "entry thread" or go up the thread and clicks the links
Thank you, but I always fall on Goodnite, can you send me the link please
@PauL62 here, these are the most recent ones.
And you may build your cards on Paint or Deviantart?
Initially, I thought it was an independent site of Alternate History where you could have blank cards available ^^
You can have access to blank maps there
I recommend the QBAM to start with something, and yes you can use any software, and you can upload it on deviantart once finished
You can't build anything on DeviantArt, that's just a gallery repository. To participate, just make your maps in what ever software you want and then post the final image in the appropriate thread. Off hand I don;t think I've ever seen anybody post a link to elsewhere instead of directly posting the image.
Which software can you advise me?
Congratulations to @Valdore Javorsky for winning MotF 202 with "De Erda dausnd Jaar efter dit Olkrik"! Well done to all the participants - there were a lot of strong entries that round!
Also, new threads are up:
MotF 203: Under One Banner - Voting Thread
MotF 204: Take Me Out/I Miss You - Entries Thread
I think a lot of people get started with Paint or something similar; GIMP and Inkscape are also popular, but more complex.
Thanks a lot!
However, I've got a small question regarding MotF 204: There seems to be a bit of conflict within the rules of the Contest: the Challenge part tells you to describe a failed/succeded OTL assassination event, but the rules state it's okay to do Fantasy/Sci-Fi/Future maps? I mean, I'm sure some here would enjoy posting a hypothetical Trump or Rootin'Tootin' Putin or (insert controversial or just random politician/person here) assassination, but that would spiral down toxic politics real quick... Or we're supposed to make a timeline inside a timeline where the opposite of our described post happens, which would be a very interesting challenge, actually.
There are can be fantasy or sci-fi elements that are incorporated, or the map can extend past 2019. So for example, "Kennedy survives and this causes the Greys to decide to make first contact" would be valid. The visible POD has to be a recorded assassination or attempt (no making one up from whole cloth), which would limit the options for contemporary figures. Does that clear things up?
