Blindfold and Eekeeboo; sure would be nice if one of you would entertain supporting this idea.

 

I have working with George Patton & Trikke on map modifications for Saturday Night events.  In one aspect I have been successful  in that I now know how to put a race track on a map for Tier Races along with  Demolition Derbies.  Personally real life gets in the way of being able to make mods for all 13 base maps plus I am not an artist.  Would like to suggest that we set up a contest for those that want to participate to come up with the best map mods.   Kind of like the Plane Skin contest for Halloween back in 2013.  There were some cool skins that were developed back then and yes a fly a number of them.  If War Planes would supply some small prizes that would be great or if there is someone out there who would like to contribute to a prize fund that would be great also.  

 

Dr. Sinister has agreed to create an executable file that would be available on his repository for all to download and unpack. This means that these maps could be used by all clans for their own clan events.

 

I have already taught the basics to LostTwo and am willing to teach anybody else who is interested in creating the map mods. 

 

Anybody that is interested in supporting this little endeavor please contact Farquare in the game and he and I will get you involved.

 

Any and all comments are welcome except from Lionitus

i once saw Lionitus staggering drunk down the street after he came out of Billy Bob's

 

this is the sign over the door in BIG LETTERS      (and it's spelled correctly now      took 'em three tries)

 

ALL GUESTS MUST BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR PERSONAL SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS WHILE AT BILLY BOB’S TEXAS

 

he sure didn't look like he had any extra gold to be handed out      but it's been a while, so...

 

edit:  BF... would you please please get this approved for us?     i support creative people!

I think this is a great idea.  I can't contribute unless you want the graphical equivalent of stick figures, but it's still a great idea.

 

I really wish WG would engage players on these kinds of ideas.   It's really like free labor (or at least, cheap labor) and will help continue to move the game forward.

Same here, but I would be willing to give it a go. What do you use to edit the maps? As long as it's software I have already I could give it a try. Any written guides yet on who,what,when,where to modify?

I am an Adobe CS user and abuser but for this stuff I use Paint.net.  Just google it and download it is free.

 

I am getting with Trikke tomorrow morning and we sill discuss the rules of the contest.  

 

Then it is a matter of getting some prizes weather that be from Wargaming or any contributions or both.
