Is it only one entry per person ?
Already I see two on PC that have 2 maps each - unsure if they are updates or different maps.

Of course it'll be one entry per person (otherwise it would be unfair) and if i remember correctly only the last one submitted by same author is validated.

Hey MarousovoCZ,

Apologies for not responding but as you can imagine, with the holidays in swing, some of the studios close over the festive period. Once everyone is back in tomorrow, I'll have a chat to see what can be done.

It is greatly appreciated that you came to us about the situation, so thank you for that :)

After some deliberation, we have decided that we will accept your latest map entry, MJ3 - Town. :)

To everyone else and to clarify:

Yes, just like MJ2, we will only accept ONE map entry per person. Of course exceptions might be made upon a case by case basis. What this means is, is that if you do submit multiple maps and alert us by contacting our community inbox (farcrycommunity@ubisoft.com) stating the situation and letting us know the map you wish to enter into the Map Jam, then we will take that into consideration.

If you don't contact us between the Map Jam dates of Dec 22nd - Jan 12th regarding a multiple map submission then unfortunately you will no longer be able to progress through the Map Jam but as always we do appreciate and hope you enjoy creating the maps as that is what Map Jam is all about.

Regarding multiple versions of the same map - There is no need to worry, we will take the LATEST uploaded version into consideration

Hope that clears things up a little :)

Hello fellow designers!

Gearing up for this map jam (my first and my first in this editor), Just a little exploratory map, short and sweet. I was learning the editor so I went for a more organic flow, not perfect, far from it, but I tried to make it pretty at least. Have fun!

MJ3 - HolidayCrasher

The holidays will not be the same without you...
When your helicopter crashes, you Find yourself stranded in the late winter thaw. You must survive to reach the warmth of the holidays! But do take some time to enjoy the majesty of nature.

4 vignettes
Solo
Easy
Exploration
Artistic

Some issues I have seen, the particle effects for the water falls turns black sometimes ruining the look. Some of the AI is off and as far as I can tell its some sort of issue with certain assets and pathfinding. Issue with explosion at start, sometimes it blows some times it doesn't, I worked until I am fairly certain it will not kill you but about 4% of the time lol, Just hit S at start and look up.....Lots of little tweaks and edits need to be made.

That is a beautiful looking map, really nice nature theme with the animals & setting, was a pleasure to walk around and look at things, also liked viewing the area where you initially spawn from the helicopter.

If that is your 1st map in the FC4 editor then Holy Sh1t you will be one to watch in FC5 ;)

Hey, thanks so much for the kind words and taking the time to play. I am so glad you to spent a few minutes looking around, I hope others do and not just bee line for the extraction point, they would miss so much. I would love to be considered for best Graphics but I have a feeling competition will be fierce. Again thank you for the play through and taking the time to look around. Glad you found it appealing. If you have any friends that play if you could get them to poke it with a stick and give me some feedback, good or bad it would be much appreciated, and a "Thumbs up" at the end would be doubly appreciated! Thanks

I'll be releasing my map here tomorrow. It's pretty much finished but I'm going through and polishing everything. I had a little less time to make what I initially envisioned but I guess this small map will do. MJ3 - Hunter's Cabin (Coming Tomorrow on PC).

I need to bring this to Ubisoft's attention. In the last 2 days I have notice all but 1 map's ratings took a nose dive. Two days ago my map MJ3 - Black Friday was over 4 stars as well as several others were around 4 stars. The the user TheGamingLemette entered and all but his map's ratings dropped to 3 stars. He then sent me a message saying "I will win this" I posted this message on the far cry map community showing his message and the before and after results. My friends and I left him dislikes and he dropped. But later on everyone's ratings dropped more and his improved. I googled and found out 1 person without that much work can create up to 16 accounts. I would ask if Ubisoft can check on this. I read the contest rules and this would be a violation of conduct. I have pictures of his messages he sent me and what the ratings were before and after. I just need to figure out how to post them on here from my playing station. Can you tell me how to do this? I also republished my map with the hopes he would not see it overnight. I wake up to see it with 4 plays and under 1 star and this is before the map goes on 'new maps'

It does sound like some shenanigans going on and should be looked into but as far as I know the "Ratings" have no impact on the Map Jam contest.

He will win the people's choice. Sadly. However, If ubisoft judges on most favorites instead of star ratings that might be a more fair way to go. Leave hate out of it. The map in question is MJ3 -FreedomVillage. You can also go to the the Far Cry Map Community and see one of his IDs post a response, essentially admitting that he is using many IDs to unfairly change the outcome of the contest to his favor. I would love to post pics to show this... I just can't figure out how to do this from my PS4.

Well that is music to my ears. OK then the creator of FreedomVillage just wasted a lot of time trolling all the entries! lol!! He is in for a surprise when he doesn't win by cheating! Nice. Most of my friends still think that star ratings are the how people's choice is won like last time. I am glad they are doing it this way instead. Thanks for the info! I will let my friends know. They will be pleased.

01-12-2018, 10:03 AM
It is clear that the ratings are adulterated. You have done well to publish this info and even more if you have evidence. I know a priori that the number of stars can separate good maps from worse ones, but since the publication of FC4, many of the maps with more stars were jacksepticeye, not elaborate maps. I hope that FC5 has a way to evaluate more clearly and less troll.

Just to note, we are aware of this and I personally have been keeping an eye upon it since I was playing some of the PS4 maps yesterday.

First and foremost, this kind of behaviour is not tolerated. Map Jam is meant to be a fun creative outlet for you folks, along with exposing talent of the community and most of all bring attention to new and upcoming map makers as well as the veterans. Rewards are incentives and are our way of saying thank you for being awesome.

Regarding how the Player Choice will be dealt with. We won't be using a poll, so we'll use the in-game ratings (That was a typo from using a template, so apologies for that ). I will not state how we pick for the player choice awards but I can state that it's a variety of factors.

As mentioned, we'll be keeping an eye on this situation. If you wish to send us your evidence, then please can you email it to the farcrycommunity inbox (Email is in the first post) that way we can certainly investigate and decide upon the next steps.

I am having trouble getting my playstation to read my flash drive. I don't want to re-formatt it, I have files saved on there... I just want to transfer a few pics to it.... arggg. Anyway, I posted everything I would have sent you on the 'Far Cry Map Editor' Community that Stigeven has set up. I think every bit of proof I have and screen shot pics of the ratings is there too. You will see the drop in ratings. You will also see a lot of frustrated mappers, seeing their high effort map's ratings butchered in the last 2 days too. It is sad that this has happened. Before this I was very much enjoying and leaving likes to the many great entries, I continued to do so, even more so trying to combat TheGamingLimette's trolling efforts. Thanks again for hosting this contest, it is unfortunate that this last two days had occurred.

Hope you like it and I will be happy of your feedback for my.I have been improving the map thanks to LazyMapper-he has youtoube channel.
Your task is to liberate outpoust (you better be stealth).
There are weapons hidden in the map and I newly added a small building based of greece architecture.

Hey guys, i decied to give map jam 3 a go. I saw the event a bit to late but i tried my best to crate a map in just 2,5 days. I introduce you "INFILTRATED" , you start in the back o a truck with your goal being to cause maythem and chaos (or be stealthy its your choice). The map has more than 5 infiltration methods you can use. Remember to look for flares and stacked stones as they indicate that loot is nearby.I could make tha map much much better if i had the time. Be aware that the map is extremely hard, even i didnt manage to go guns blazing and win, the stealth option is much harder tho. The map is pretty heavy on budget so you probably gonna need a decent/gaming pc to run it smoothly. My framerate sometimes drops on 40 on a 1000 euros pc :p Have fun and if you fail once try again every time you will discover something new!.
This is the trailer of the map.

I'm afraid nothing has been said about that man. I'm not too sure what happened but I best guess would be that they didnt have time to go back. Seeing how FC5 was delayed for a month they might be crunching for time and some stuff was probably left on the cutting room floor.

Hi

Congratulations to all of the winners so far! I was wondering if anyone at Ubisoft could clear something up about the Best Narrative category...

In the Far Cry livestream on January 26th, the winners were announced for Best Graphic, Best Level Design, and Best Gameplay categories, and the hosts said that the Player Choice category would be announced at a later date. Is Best Gameplay an additional category, and if so, when will the Best Narrative winners be announced? The first post on this thread and the official rules document state that the winners will be picked out of four categories: Best Level Design, Best Graphic, Best Narrative, and Player Choice.

I would appreciate some clarification, since when I was designing my map, I focused on including a narrative and story to the level, because of the Best Narrative category which I am now unsure whether it will still be announced.

Thank you
