Hello there, recently it has occurred to me that a competition on this site may be a good idea to get more people who lurk within the downloads section to become more active (and also to drag some old players out of the woodwork)
Therefore I have decided to create a competition based upon the Siege That! mode in Stronghold 1, as the whole idea behind this mode was to create siege maps that you could challenge your friends with.
The rules of this contest are simple;
Entries must be submitted to the Siege That! Downloads section with STC2014 within the name. Any submitted without it will not be judged. You have been warned!
No editing or updating of the map after the deadline.
Entries must be submitted before the competition closes.
One entry per person.
Entries must be created within the Siege That! Editor.
All entries must adhere to the stone and gold limit within the Siege That! editor.
Stronghold Versions do not matter.
If there are not enough entries for a valid competition, then the deadline will be extended slightly before the competition will be called off as a failure.
No flaming! This is a friendly competition and people are expected to act as such.
I'm not actually sure myself on this front; maybe the glory of having won? Being able to say it won in the map description in the downloads?, and therefore, by extension, more downloads?

(0/10) Playability-How fun the map was to play.
(0/10) Difficulty-How difficult the map was to beat-Harder gets more points.
(0/5) Story-How good the story was-this can be anything from a description to a prologue and so forth (Instructions and hints are included within this marking criteria)
(0/5) Castle Design-As you cannot design the map in Siege That! This will be based purely on the design of the castle that has been made.
I have recently posted an example Siege That! map to the downloads section. The map is entitled FerthHelm Signal-Fort, and I have created it just to show that a map can be created very quickly and easily and it is also, to provide castle design help to people. Download it here:
