[♆] Event #7 - Capricornus by Atheyna March 2, 2015 at 2:03 AM UTC

Event #7: This is the seventh official event on the Avicus Network, known as "Capricornus". You will be given 20 days to construct a map for The Avicus Networks gamemode, Nexus. There will however be a couple rules to the contest.

Who are the judges?
The individuals that will be judging this competition are Flufflepuff_ and matic0basle. Judges for this contest will not change, so please do not ask to become one. You may however request to become a judge for future Avicus building competitions.

What are the rules?
You have to follow these rules or your map will be rejected.
- You may not have more than 3 authors.
- You must have a Nexus map. Anything else will not be entered in.
- You may not create more than 2 maps for Capricornus 

What are the guidelines?
Maps are judged in the following aspects;
Gameplay (How do you think the map will play on the servers?)
Aesthetics (How pleasing to the eye does it look?)
Creativity (Is it unique and really stands out?)

YAML will be done by a map developer if you wish, and it will not count against you. We're all here to help!

What gamemodes can I do?
You can do anything possible within YAML in Nexus. 

How do I submit my map?
Put a [CONTEST] tag in the title. By doing so, you are entered into the contest and put into a spreadsheet. It contains the map name, authors, thread link, jurisdiction of approval/denial, and it's gamemode. All Nexus maps are eligible to be in this contest. You have the permission to post your thread link in the post below so we can see it easier.

1. Do not give in-constructive feedback by knocking others down to build yourself up.
2. Do not steal maps; all maps are your property. Violations of this are a permanant ban.
3. Do not ghost produce; don't have other users make a map for you and you take credit.
4. Do not spam judges; patience is a large key. Wait for a response on your map.
5. Do not ghost view; don't tally a ton of thread views in your thread for attention.
6. Do not make joke maps; all maps must be true submissions to the server.
7. Do not submit maps made prior to this; all maps must be "newly produced".
8. Always give credit. No matter what the case, credit everyone who authored.

How can I create YAML?
Use our documentation resource at docs.avicus.net.

What is the prize?
The prize has yet to be determined. 

Is the spreadsheet public?
Yes! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1a9CYPRvSxJWrkJiugM7Hl3dlCmi6M5iwYG-xU5dhK0w/edit?usp=sharing

A constellation that is said to look like a goat with a fish tail. Interesting.
