    Hello, I am a player on cubecraft and me and my mates decided to build a map and send it in to become a map for the server, ultimately we got shot down and moved on. But as of the new eggwars update it has come to my attention the new solo map Farms is the map we made with a different block pallet I dont request you remove it but that me and my friend at least get some recognition for our stolen work or at least a discussion with whom ever this concerns. Thank you. Here is a link to our submitted map https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/twister-eggwars-map-submission.62383/

    Well they do feature a few similar objects (windmills, a barn, etc.) but to be fair, you can't really make a map named Farm without a barn, and windmills are pretty standard on farms too. Yours has a pretty clear "Twister" theme, while our new map lacks that. There's a clear difference in build design for all the structures, more than just a pallet swap. Really, the only thing that was "copied" is the idea, and you can't really claim dibs on an idea.

    That said, nice work on your twister map. I remember @Driii made a twister for her builder application many moons ago.

    Hi

    I built the map farm and I honestly never saw your map. I'll tell you the exact process how I made it though. I googled 'cartoon farm'. Then took inspiration from lots of pictures. Then I built it. Although the two maps use the same theme, they look very different, more than just the block pallete. The island terraforming, the decoration, the execution of the structure. They only have the same idea and elements of a farm in common. Hope this clears things up
