So the results for the Pretty Town Contest 2006 are finally in. After many hours of painstaking analysis, plenty of tears, a lot of coffee, and careful scrutinisation of every last pixel, we've finally come up with our list of winners:


1st Place: Wonders of the Deep by The Vandhaal

Coming in first place was The Vandhaal who wins himself a copy of The Making of AoM DVD, The Official AoM Soundtrack, and a custom title, for his beautiful underwater world in Wonders of the Deep. Delving amongst the ruins of Atlantis and into Poseidon's watery realm, it's a stunning feast of eye candy, quite possibly some of the best ever. Great design, object placement, and use of the editor at it's best make this a well deserved winner.

2nd Place: Archaeopolis by Archaeoptrix

Only just missing out on the top prize in second place was Archaeoptrix's Archaeopolis, a near impregnable Citadel, run by an evil dictator. Congrats Arch, you've won yourself a copy of the AoM soundtrack, and a custom title. The town itself is extremely well done, with great attention to detail. A well defined layout, and excellent use of elevation and eye candy make for a very comfortable 2nd place.

3rd Place: El Muelle de San Blas by Auron

Our final winning spot goes to Auron of Tsunami Studios, who gets a HG T-Shirt and custom title for his efforts in El Muelle de San Blas, a gorgeous town, backed up with some nicely done design.

Finally, an honourary mention goes to Urgwaine who wins a custom title for the sheer originality and humour of A Trip to Talos. If you've ever wondered what would happen if the Norse, Egyptians, and Greeks teamed up to explore strange new worlds before colonising space, wonder no more!


A big congratulations to all our winners - I'll be in touch soon about your prizes. A large thank you to all of those who took part for helping to make it such a great competion, Papaya for helping with the judging, and Jared for helping with the organisation.

We'll have the entries up for your downloading pleasure shortly, so stay tuned!

Edit: Downloads are now up

Awesome! Congrats guys!

And, the way the downloads turned out is cool. I thought when you said you were releasing them, they'd all be in one megapack with your name as the author. Thanks.

Any chance of seeing how many points each scenario received?

There aren't any plans to release the exact scores at this time. Sorry.

    Many congratulations Vandhaal, Archaeopterix and Auron!!

    Particular congrats I give to Arch, whose town I was sent full map screenies of throughout the design process, and I thought it was utterly awesome.

    Due to my AOT disk being broken, I can't view any towns without full map screenshots.
    (I'd particularly appreciate them at absolutely full size, so everything is at the default AOM zoom. )

    I once again like to congratulate ALL the guys & girls who created and submitted something for the AomH pretty town Contest 2006 !!!..... I mean all 16 of us guys have turned this into a true community design event..... I also would like to thank all the guys who did not submit anything but supported this AomH event...and who supported us designers.......so yes lets turn this all into a big party !!!.....and lets hope more people will see the possibilities of AoM and will start to mess around with this old but still very alive game !

    Ofcourse my congrats go to Auron & Archaeoptrix
    but they also go to Urgwaine.....he should be an example for all guys who are new to AoM.... This was the first map he ever has created for AoM....and it sure rocks ass hell and sparkels from imagination !

    Well ofcourse Guardian of Isis should also get a special mention...because he basicly had not time and still pushed on to create and submit something !!

    Ok thanx a lot : sorry name taken, Sandro the Wicke, shadeslayer , dwieeb, darkdude, Titan602, Prometheus4 , Kyle_De_Konquer_, Iceacool , I Love Bananas ,GoI, Alex Pespsidude_123 , Auron, Archaeopterix and Urgwaine it is a great honour to be part of this competition in such a fine collection of spirited scenario designers who love AoM !!

    Also many thanx to Sith, Papaya and King Jared...well i know that I have won...but most important for me is to know that you guys ( the evil judges) have enjoyed this scenario.

    Paperfriend, Darkdude and Urgwaine...I would like to thank you guys also for convincing me to not step down from this competition....I hope that although I have won many people agree with me that this has been a great and inspiring event....and I hope not too much guys will be disappointed

    I also hope that all others who download it will enjoy my but also all other maps !! (please tread them nice and do not burn them into the ground with crappy ratings or weird comments)....and I hope that many new people will start messing around and explore the world of ancient myths, sexy women, and brave warriors.....the world called Age of Mythology.

    Ok to celebrate this fantastic scenario design party I will post a full showcase for my map...( stay tuned i will edit this message in some minutes and post the link at the bottom)

    Once again thanx a lot it is a great honour to be the winner amongst such great designers....not only the oldies but also the suprising new guys !!!

    thanks again to Vandhaal and all of his honorable mentions, again, I'm stunned at how much the designing community is yet still alive and just how great it is.. Again, congrats everyone, good luck with everything and especially you The Vandhaal, with your The Corruptor Campaign.. Now I can't wait to see it ...

    First of all, thank you to everyone who entered the contest, I was very pleased and surprised at the same time with the amount of entries that we had. I can honestly say that I had a lot of fun judging them all. Congrats to The Vandhaal, Archaeoptrix, Auron, and Urgwaine. All of you did very nice jobs!

    Regarding one big download: yes, this can be arranged. I understand how this would be much easier than download them separately. One should be available shortly.

    Also, like I said in another thread, a gallery is going to be set up with screenshots from all the entries soon. So Shrink, don't worry, you'll see them.


    oh you can wait for what I can give
    you know what I am so you know how I live
    try to look proud but youíre not in the slightest
    its happening now and itís always been like this.
