Community Maps should primarily be played as 8 players Free For All.

These maps must be primarily entertaining to watch and play. Fairness is not as important as in competitive maps, although too much imbalance will negatively influence playing experience.

Go crazy with your imagination to create unique game modes, add additional objectives, introduce diplomacy aspects or mess around with attributes.

For this challenge you must make an interesting map with a fixed shape, which facilitates a balanced 8 player Free For All game.

By combining a scenario design with a random map you can create beautiful worlds with some random generation. Examples of these maps are the special maps (as found in the HD-version) or Real World maps.

The ZipRandomMap (ZR) consists of one scenario file (.scx) and one random map script file (.rms)
