Starting from this very moment you will have exactly 24hours to create one random map script, which generates a community games map. (submit here: https://aoe2map.net/contest/)

Read below what exactly is asked from you. Also read the rules to make sure your submission is eligable.

If there are any questions regarding the challenge or regarding how to submit the map, comment below.

STAGE 2: COMMUNITY MAP
Theme:
Haunted Islands: deep sea, storm, ghosts, pirates, sea-monsters

Map Design:
-All players start on separate islands.
-There may be additional islands per player.
-There are at least some additional uninhabited islands, or a large mainland.
-The size of the player islands should be rather small, which should encourage players to move out to other islands.
-At least some of the islands should be connected.
-Water control should be crucial, however there must be options to come back even without control on the water.
-The map does not have to be symmetrical, but make sure each player has somewhat equal chances (also to fight for a monument in the middle!)
-Some inspiration from ‘ standard’ maps with similar criteria: Islands, Pilgrims, Migration, Archipelago, Caribbean, Atoll, Bog Islands…

Map Style:
-The map is designed to be played as Free For All, with or without Diplo.
-Introduce something that makes this map especially interesting for Community Games.
-The map script must support Regicide as option.
-The map can have a guard state (guard state on town center to be like a Sudden Death, or guard state on a hero unit or king to act like a regicide)
-The map script must support King of the Hill. In case of King of the Hill, make sure the monument is at least accessible by land units. There should be some land area surrounding the monument, but it’s up to you to decide if the monument is in shooting range of navy, or even reachable by boats.
-The map should be playable on all map sizes.


RULES:
General rules:
-Each participant can only submit one map-script per stage. This script may not be a map-pack (a collection of maps in one script)
-Make sure the submitted map works in all settings. If the script contains game-breaking bugs, we will not fix them in order to test the map.
-Since we grade maps anonymously you should hide your name from the script (don’t put your name in the title, or in comments in the script)
-Try to follow the challenge (not confirming to the challenge will result in a lower rating of your map)

File name:
-The submitted script should be a .rms file
-The name of the script should start with the RMC_ prefix, followed by the name of your map (for example "RMC_Himalaya_Heights.rms")
-Also: Participants may replace their previous submission during the submission period by submitting a new map with the exact same author name ("Who are you?")
-The filename does not contain the name (or abbreviation) of the author.
-The name of the file should be <18 characters (including the prefix, excluding the .rms extension)

Code quality:
-Not only do we judge the maps that are generated with your script, but we will also review the quality of the code of the map-script
-Good code is well-structured, well readable, does not contain duplicates, does not contain broken language, does not lack any if-, endif’s or curly brackets, and has /* comments */ for explanations (make sure not to forget the spaces here)
