1. You will have to build one bordertown divided into two parts (two different nations), on each side of the river which holds the borderline (North and South.) It is the mainriver in the region running from east to west that will be the line between the two Nations. (see map/region picture). There has to be a significent visual difference between the two Nations, whether they are rich and poor, modern and old, small and big, advanced culture and not so advanced,etc.... or anything else that is easily seen and recognized as a visual difference. There is always somewhere in this world where one part of a civilization has the advantage of something and the other side doesn't. The Center of this town has to be built in the middle tile with the riverisland. (see map, tile *E*), but it can spread over all neighboring tiles and as many as you wish. You yourself decide which side of the river has which nation. Remember to leave some space for agriculture.


2. You will have to use the specified GRV II map uploaded to the LEX and STEX and render it into a medium tile region only (green config.bmp)


3. You may not at any time and under no circumstances build the following anywhere in your region (unless asked to do so):

  • A national or international airport or anything similar that could look like it.
  • A seaport or harbour of any kind or anything that could look like it.(except small fishing and pleasance docks and marinas)
  • A highway of any kind or roads/blvds that can be easily transformed into highways or may look like one, nor boulevards in small villages and towns that absolutely look unreal and out of place. Before you build something like this, inform yourself by asking me (mrbisonm)
  • An army base, airforce or naval base or anything that may look like it. That includes the National guard.


4. Once asked to meet a challenge, you will do your best to complete the demand in every detail and within the timelimits allowed (usually 10 days). Every single part of the challenge has to be executed entirely.


5. Each time a challenge is given, a minimum quantity of pictures will be demanded which has to be respected, also the view of the pictures will be precised as asked for. You can show us more pictures of any views in the same update if you want to though. No limits. Please respect the picture sizes demanded by this site.


6. You may not alter the terrain dramatically (terraforming) to any other form without having the permission from the judges to do so. Straightening out the river banks a little bit for better retaining wallconstructions, yacht clubs, flattening out some stretches for better road or rail construction, bridges or for plopping certain lots etc, are allowed. Just keep yourself within the limits of the acceptable please. Moving a hill or creating a new river/creek/lake/bay/flats is not allowed, remember that. Heavy penalty points will result by doing so.
