    Post ***November Challenge Voting***


    I almost forgot to add - Make sure to give the entrants you voted for some rep!

    The challenge was:
    Lost in Space

    Whether you are "Lost in Space", "Pigs in Space", or colonizing the "Spore Universe", what the intrepid space farer really needs is a decent map.

    Stealing Gameprinter's words, the challenge this month is to create an orbital map, star-system map or even a quadrant map. A map as large as an entire galaxy, or the immediate environment surrounding a planet or star system.

    Not just any old political map... this is intended to be a traveler's map (not a Traveller map) to aid in "getting there", where ever there may be.

    Sharpen up your lightstylus, put a fresh coat of paint on the Tardis, and prepare to beam up...

    Entries should be in by no later than November 25, 2008.

    Good Luck!!

    Wow... this was an incredibly difficult vote this month. I actually had to really focus on the challenge rules and had to look at entries a few times to narrow down my choices. Well done everyone!

    Post Voting done

    Once again a nice challenge with alot of nice entries.

    My 5 votes did got to and why:

    • SG - I can so imagine seeing his entry in a sci-fi movie or game. When I first saw it I thought wow
    • Ascension - as well a nice 'screenshot' entry.
    • GP - I like his approach of the challenge and as always its done nicely
    • ravells - Somehow this is the way a Stargate could look like. Nice idea and nicely done
    • Bohuk - My 5th vote did go to Bohuk, because there are quite a few entries with a similar idea and his one looks the most 'technically' to me.

    Super tough vote this month, that's for sure. I went for:

    mmmmpig: The clean lines, retro feel and lovely composition. Couldn't pass this one up.
    Bohunk: His map looks like a cascading waterfall and the text labelling became an integral part of the design - beautiful colours too.
    Map Vandal: Clean lines and great arcs - I really liked the simplicity of the map and the complex equations to give it that tecchy feel.
    Steel General: This was a great 'information display' map. Lots of information set out in a logical and attractive way.
    Darken: I really liked the originality of the idea and the glowing 3d projection.

    There were so many others that I was on the verge of voting for (too numerous to mention). My prediction is that this month really could end up in a draw.

    Great work everyone!!

    Wow.... just plain wow

    so many entries that I wanted to vote for, but I only had 5 to choose from.

    The competition is getting tight in this here forum. I agree with Ravells, this one could easily be a three way draw. This challenge compass could pretty much go to anyone.

    I will have C&C for all the maps later this week, I will be dealing with extended fam for the near future

    I have to agree with everyone... some awesome and really creative maps this month. Space is not my fortay, but I enjoyed getting some good practice in with 3DS max. Thanks everyone for their help and suggestions!

    For me, these decisions really came down to deciphering the map's intention... to quote the rules: "this is intended to be a traveler's map ... to aid in 'getting there' ". Here are my choices:

    Korrigan: Love the idea, artistically pleasing and well planned. Really fit the bill nicely.
    Zanza: Again, loved it. Google maps for space... who knew! Attention to deal was great.
    mmmmmpig: great artistic style. Clean, but with that rustic, hand made look.
    cereth: I'm probably a little biased on this one, but I love the hex maps... reminds me of Battletech. Would have been perfect if you toned down the white-wash a bit.
    Ascension: I think it could have been better in terms of aiding in navigation (like outlining a travel path), but I think a valid argument is that the information provided would facilitate navigation. Great style, awesome graphics.

    Everyone shall be duly repped!

    Great entries everyone! Looking forward to seeing you next month!

    [EDIT] Oh, and I find it awfully ironic that we had that long talk about my map's brightness with a name like Darken!

    Very difficult voting for the most part, a couple were fairly easy choices - mostly for their originality. As to the rest I honestly couldn't decide so I had a coin-flip playoff.

    Normally I vote according to the aesthetic beauty of a map or the originality of a map but this time I decided to vote according to my own (admittedly arbitrary) estimation of how well the entry fit the criteria. Had I voted for beauty/originality, as I usually do, my votes would be totally different and that's what makes this challenge so hard to judge. Also, if I were voting for the aesthetics I'd have to choose 10 or 12 and hence I fell back on the criteria to try to limit my choices. Great job everyone! Even though many of us know diddly about sci-fi stuff it's nice to see that we can take our skillset and apply it to different genres. I think the winner is the challenge itself.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
