    Too bad that we could only vote for three entries cause they were so many that deserved a vote.
    Anyway I voted for "Gilmore's Forest" (which is my favorite map),"The Battle of Sugar Highs" and for "The Lookout Islands".Congratulations to everyone.
    And now it's time to hand out some(okay a lot) of rep.

    Awesome entries this time around, guys. You made it crazy hard to spend just three votes. Mine went for:

    1) Diamond, The Human Diaspora - Cool concept and great, unexpected use of the shapes. Masterfully executed.
    2) RecklessEnthusiasm, Collapsed Bunker - Another great use of the shapes...and it's post-apocalyptic!
    3) Rjbeals, Lookout Islands - What can I say? Wow. One of the prettiest maps I've ever seen. And yet, there's something creepy...

    If I could spread more votes I'd send them first to Map Vandal (another pretty map), krolac (lovely map and beautiful style, such detailed development), Industry Gothica (yummy colors and that labeling is killing me), jtougas (hey, I also loves me some extra-planar locations)...well, okay, I'd throw one to everybody that entered because they're all incredible maps. Rep all around when I get a chance.

    I will make it short: Good entries everywhere and rep to all (as far as I can)!
    My favourites are Diamond, RecklessEnthusiasm and tilt, because they really transferred the shape to another level.

    I liked Reckless's map a lot. Nicely rendered and such a good and novel idea which for me is a strong quality to have on a challenge map. I also went with RJBeals map cos it was pretty and showed great painting expertise and then Jax's map cos it was unusual and interesting and quite a tough call to pull off. But super job to all who entered. Theres not one map among them not up to main challenge quality.

    No I did not vote for myself(there were too many better entries..) Everyone did a great job I'm glad I got mine together in time and I'm happy with it.

    1. Lookout Island: Just a beautiful map (and my daughter wanted to vote for it)
    2. Collapsed Bunker: Just a cool use of the shapes and a great map
    3. Sky Islands: as a golfer I want to play THERE..so Jax how much are green fees?...

    The repper seems to be broken so I'll have to come back and rep my votes: RJB, Reckless, and Krolac, with Honorable Mention to Vandal.

    I have sort of taken to not voting when I'm in the contest but with 3 votes to toss around I think it's ok. I don't vote for myself because well, it just doesn't feel right to me and if I loose by 1 vote I figure my entry must not have been strong enough to blow the competition away.

    So, my votes went to

    RJB - just a beautiful map, I think this will be really hard to beat. Nicely done. I also agree, there is something kind of creepy about it...like it's too good to be true and it scares me. Add in some Cathulhu monsters and that's a nightmare waiting to happen.
    Diamond - Loved the use of the shapes and all the great looking tidbits on the map just make this fun to look at.
    Krolac - Just a very clean usage of the shapes to make a nice looking map that is pretty much what we expect to see around here.

    I also loved RE's map and if I could have seen some flooring or blown out computers down thru the black areas I'd have been totally sold.
    Rogueleaders was gorgeous but needed a bit more mapiness to be a map, great artistic image though.
    Tilt's map was great and always made me smile looking at it.

    Like others have said they were all great maps and that's what is so nice to see. Everyone should be really pleased with their entries as all of them are worthy contenders.

    Holycarp. Great entries this time around. This is so hard to vote, I've managed to trim down my choices to 7 by being totally ruthless with my criteria. I'm just not able to narrow it down further, there's stuff in there that would kick butt in standard challenges let alone lite challenges

    I may have to take a day or so and come back to finish the vote.
