Well, the July challenge has come to a close, and we had some great entries all around. Not as many as some of the more recent challenges, but thats ok, we'll try to remedy that in the coming months too ;)

Here's a link to the challenge entries courtesy of our great friend RedRobes ;)

Best of luck to the entrants!

This time around we'll be doing the multi-select WITH visible voting so be honest, select no more than three entries when you vote. Everyoen can see what you voted for so BE HONEST!!!

Incomplete entries omitted.

D'oh! I fergot this was a multi poll (so used to voting for just one) Any way my vote can be negated so I can re-vote.

May I congratulate you Vry on an excellent win. I am sure glad we had multiple choice voting this month as from 32 voters 29 of them put you in their top 3 and I expect many of them would have put you number 1 and not left any crumbs for us.

Looking at your map there is exquisite detail, good lighting, interesting shapes well everything really. If you had posted the map in on the last day and said to us how hard you had toiled over it for a month I would have been impressed but your basic map just 11.5 hours after the challenge description went up and even if poised over the keyboard and took no breaks thats still a just unbelievably incredible achievement to create this standard in that amount of time. Would really like to know how you do it.

Would also like to acknowledge all the others too but especially rlucci's which I was so disappointed not to see fully finished as it was heading for a real doozy too.

I was pleased with my entry but it took so long all that 3D rendering. I think I ought to spend that time making more CWBP stuff and getting on with those back burner projects too. As always, thanks to those who voted for me too. :)

Ditto.. Congrats to a well deserved victory Vry... I wish I had 100th of your artistic talent. Of course, now we require a lot more samples of your work, so keep them coming!!!!

Yes, congratulations Vry, I thought that we, as in the FHCO's and I, were going to have a hard time deciding, as they seldom agree on much before second breakfast, and on even less after elevenses, but they were all in for your map, and the others they voted for as well,,,we did a secret ballot, they closed their eyes and raised their hands when I said the names of the maps. So it worked well, no intimidation over favs.
They were sad that the Flying Bar didn't take flight, but are happy that it may get worked on yet.

All in all they liked all the maps (though I did have to rename the slap and tickle, their mom might have had my head mounted if they had brought that up at dinner), and once they are settled in after school starts they may take another go at it,,as they have learned a lot and are bursting now.

Congrats Vry! That was such a superb entry, full of atmosphere and attention to detail.
I, like the others was said that the flying bar never got built and that the best concept (rlucci's tree bar) didn't get finished.

Congratulations Vry, and many congratulations to all of those that took him on! A well-deserved win for an excellent map.

Thanks for the votes and compliments everyone, it was a fun challenge.

In answer to Redrobes question about mapping speed, it’s all about reusability.
Most of the surrounding buildings and layer styles for floors and walls were already done a year or more ago on previous maps. Kane’s Place was made up of elements from about six other maps. The only parts that really take a while are object placement and lighting.

…Dungeon Tiles next, eh? This one should be interesting.

Congrats Vry. Great map and well deserved victory.
