Hello

Map Showcase Rules

1. Title your topic appropriately.
Make sure your title includes the name of your map. Simple enough.

2. Keep your original post organized and informative.
A simple mish-mosh of unorganized information can be confusing. The more organized your post looks, the better your production will look. Include some basic information about your map(s). What makes your map so special? We'd like to know before trying it out!

3. Include the completed map or the exact name in battle.net and on which gateways it is hosted.
This is a must, must, must. If we can't find your map, we have nothing to comment on. This should be self-explanatory.

4. Keep posts relevant.
Map makers will always love praise of their work, but simply saying "Awesome map!" is unnecessary as a response. If you're going to give a map criticism, add some depth to it. If you really liked it, state what you liked about it. If you happened to dislike it, perhaps state why and include suggestions. Any simple two or three word praises would be more suitable in a PM to the map maker.

5. No flaming.
I cannot stress this one enough. More often than not we find posts in threads from people who just want to bash a map or the map's creator. This is unacceptable. We're all for constructive criticism, but simply patronizing someone is out of the question. People take their creations very personally and often any attacks against them or the work leads to a very defensive argument that is really uncalled for. This rule should be simple enough. Let's keep the arguing to a minimum.

6. Try not to double-post.
This should be self-explanatory: limit the double-posting, which means don't post twice in a thread without a reply by someone else in between. Unless you're reviving a thread that's been dead for weeks or there has been a lack of activity in your thread for days, keep the double-posting to a minimum. If you recently updated something in your map and want to mention it in your thread, use the "Edit" button for your last post.


For now, these should be suitable. I'll add more in the future if need be.

Ultraviolet -- You might even be able to turn another unused unit into a map revealer imitation with a smaller vision range so that you could have both normal map revealers and smaller map revealers. Not sure about this one though.

Ultraviolet -- youarenotworthy
youarenotworthy shouted: Does anybody know of a way to reveal just a sliver of the map? Smaller than what a map revealer would reveal? Or is there a way to block the map revealer off at a certain point? I can't use units to achieve what I'm trying to do.
Using EUDs, you can reduce the vision range of map revealers. But of course this will apply to all map revealers. They have a default vision range of 10. For some of my maps, I've been increasing their vision range to 11 and giving them detection and it works nicely. Reducing vision range should work the same.

are you in Minneapolis?

NudeRaider -- or do you need actual vision (not just revealing the terrain)

if at the beginning of the game (as opposed to at some later time in game) is enough, just edit the fog of war layer.

NudeRaider -- as an innocent bystander, mind you

and apparently you should follow that advice: https://streamable.com/u2jzoo -- crazy things going on over there. You're not even safe from police harassment on your own property.

Oh_Man -- Units and map revealers are only way. Unless there's some EUD solution I'm not aware of.

IlyaSnopchenko -- Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: You can also use burrowed Zerg units.
The OP says he cannot use units. But if it's not units, what else? (there's a command to reveal the area in AISE, but it's only for 1.16)
