If Java had true garbage collection, most programs would delete themselves upon execution.

To avoid spam and make this board a better place for all mappers, we've got a few basic minimum requirements for a release topic about your map:

  • At least one screenshot and/or YouTube video must be included in the post. Pictures speak a thousand words, but in the case of mapping, they speak a million!
  • There should be a description of the map, demonstrating a brief outline of what the map is like. A list of features is a good starting point, but a simple list of five very short sentences won't cut it. People want to know about your map and a few very basic words or sentences don't tell us anything.
  • Proper credit must be given to anyone that was largely involved in the creation of the map. Obviously we don't know who has helped you, but if anyone in your map's topic claims their credit is missing, or contacts us regarding this matter, we will investigate it when we have time and take proper action.
  • Your map must be packaged using the UGX Install Creator, and uploaded to an approved web host. See here for details. If you are releasing a mod or script you may use GitHub as a download host if you prefer to use version control and a centralized download location.
  • If your map requires T4M, you must state so in the thread title and within the thread itself.

To help give you an idea of what a good release thread looks like, here is an example:

Sendspace has now been removed from recommended hosts and added to the disallowed hosts list because of slow download speeds and a deceiving malware downloader.

How do you add a screenshot when there is no way to do so?  and why force everyone to use a stupid automatic install program?  To me, it's very stupid, and I can preach about it.  When I started playing customs, the auto installs simply wouldn't download.  Now, many auto installers take forever to load, if it is even going to work.  Another thing, Many people use mega.nz, which is horrible, It sucks so much arse, my brain shuts out the memory of the site's name.  and, the last thing, every auto install makes a worthless folder on my desktop, which im tired of deleting, even though I disabled the shortcuts AND Start menu options.

I don't know if you've seen other posts or not.. but a majority of them have some kind of picture in it... far left button and you add the direct image links within the tags - and the installer is an easier way of giving people w/o knowledge of how the files work access to maps, that way there aren't a million posts asking, "where do I put map files".

The button with the picture, I just get 2 random brackets with 'img' in them, thats where I get that there is no way to add images.  I already knew how to do the hyperlink one.
