    The Inlet Map, City Building Contest, Winter 2016
    (Part of Funkys Christmas Map Pack 2015)​

    City Building will take place between January - March 2016. City Builders may submit up to 10 photos by April 1, 2016, for judging in the Official Contest Submission Thread. Winners will be announced May 1, 2016. Winners will be awarded special "banners" that will be displayed under their avatar on XLNation.

    The Rules:
    1. Your City must be built on the Inlet Map (Part of Funkys Christmas Map Pack 2015)

    The Spirit of Community

    Share your work as you progress in the building period. Encourage each other. Bystanders can cheer on their favorites. Remember, this is a game and we are supposed to have FUN. This contest is not about the biggest city but the best in various categories.

    Win, Place, Show (Voted by the Community) -- Unique Medal and 15/10/5 Trophy Points

    Agreed, three months is actually a challenge. It takes me FOREVER to build at my own pace.

    Pretty keen to see what people do with this map. Without sounding like a Wanker, it's a pretty cool map. I might make a few more like it.

    Good luck everyone.

    I have not been doing much map making at the moment and was busy building a new city.
    Guess it will go on hold as I can't resist giving the new competition a go :)
