Rating Categories

These are the categories your map will be graded on. Check out the guidelines below for more info.


Map Balance
  • Supply placements should not favor any particular army
  • Distance between players to the middle should be as equal as possible.
  • No player position should be favored over another.
  • Civilian Buildings should be placed fairly.
  • Oil Derricks should be distributed evenly.
  • The Terrain shouldn't favor one position or army over another.
  • The Map should be balanced for as many armies as possible. Example - If it's a 2 supply map and then one of the supply is very hard for USA, then it isn't fair. But if it's a 3 supply map and 2 are easy for all armies, that would be fine, such as Snowy Drought.
Creativty
  • The map's environment/atmosphere/mood
  • Touches regarding appearance
  • Fun factor
  • Anything creative and unique (don't just make a Tournament Desert clone)
Texturing
  • Quality of texture blends (More info: https://youtu.be/ts0f2v0eSi0 - courtesy of cncHD)
  • Texture coherency (How well different textures work together)
  • Whether textures match the geometry/roads/buildings/etc
Geometry
  • Map layout
  • Quality of placement and execution of ramps, bridges, cliffs
  • Height differences in the terrain
The Categories are based on the Instant Shock World Builder Contest 2020
