Hi :) I'm just not sure how to apply this condition: The event must be set to “Map Creation Contest”. I can't see any settings called event.
Thanks in advence :)

Hey Stonewall1815! When you go to Humankind.mod.io, you should see an empty box called "event" at the bottom. It's located after the mod preview image and mod type. There's only one event running at the moment for Humankind, so you will see "Map Creation Contest" popping up. Click on it & confirm, and you're all set! Hope that helps :)

Hey there devs! I am making several maps, mostly trying to limitate Natural Wonders into most of them (I had the feeling that non-Earth settings may not be too immersive like encountering Everest, for example) with the exception of one map where I had to put more volcanos so I used the Vesuvio asset.
In you Map Editor Manual, chapter 6 it is said that placing Natural Wonders is a constraint. I was wondering: do I have to put every single Natural Wonder only ONE time min and max in every map I made to make it eligible? Because Map Editor validation doesnt seem to signal Natural Wonders presence/absence as an issue.
Thanks in advence for you answer!
