I just think that custom textures will be able to contribute to creating a new, fresh look that we haven't seen a lot (not to say it's a grounds to rate maps using stock textures lower than those that don't).
Including a custom texture set or music file that has been widely used in SP mapping is fine, but don't create a massive zip / rar file containing ten different texture, music and sound packages. Keep it simple.

Frieza wrote:The widely used in SP mapping part. Why limit ourselves to texture packs that we've seen a hundred times over? If someone wants to use new or relatively unknown textures there should be no rules against that.

Creavion wrote:Map count:We are limited to one map? (just ask in the case something could happen that I need 2 map files because of the node limit, I have to plan something like that from the beginning)
Raven wrote:Maybe just put size limit of archived content? Let's say all stuff must be no bigger then 20MB in zip/rar archive. Anyway I'd also allow to use .:..: emitter. After all maps will be judged by gameplay - all other stuff (like particles) will be just add-on.
