Pie, can you post here a "Clan Logo" or a "Contest Logo" texture for the map?

Sure. I'll have to make one first, lol. I don't map, so could you give me the requirements I need to follow for it to work as a texture in a map?

Mapraider has a useful feature of letting you link related files and projects together.
It also mirrors your files on other sites, services and networks for you.

Other multi-mirroring systems; (the first 2 include upload to Filefront)
http://www.mirrorcreator.com
http://www.embedupload.com
http://flashmirrors.com

Or create your own mirrors with http://www.mirrorbrain.org
Don't forget Skydrive, if you have a MSN or Hotmail account.

Sure okay, you need to make the texture file with .BMP extension, after you can import to UED
The size are for the logo I think 512x512 or 512x1024 but it's dependent from your logo

Alright, I'll see what I can do, and get it on here asap. =-]

Edit: Also, I know that you can set black to be transparent, right? Or is that only for splashes? Cause I know there's no transparency support with .bmp.

@Pie. There are several colors that are transparent, but black is common.
You know my email. Make the image on a transparent 512x512 file and I'll do the rest for you if you can't get it to work.

Sounds good, KiLLaH. I'll just make it as a .png and then email it to you for you to change up. =-]

Any color can be transparent. You have to set the last color in the 256 color table to the transparent color and when you import select masked

I didn't make it too fancy or anything. Basically just took things from the Contest Guidelines Flyer, as I liked the setup, and feel it works well for the contest. I've decided for it to have no transparencies. This is it:

Anyone who's submitting a map needs to download the ReadMe I attached to this post. It needs to be filled out and included with your map before you submit it next month.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.
