OVERWATCH STATUS GO

Here's are some simple templates for anyone looking to make a Map Production thread but can't figure out an interesting way to convey information about their map.

As a side note, screenshots are a big part of Production threads. Adding screenshots usually shows that your map is well under way, not just another spur-of-the-moment idea for a map which may never see day light in reality. In short, screenshots can mean the difference between a topic that gets attention and one that gets none. Don't just get a picture of a minimap view of the terrain, either; use the PrintScreen key to get some good shots of actual gameplay when you're testing out your map.




MAP NAME
Brief description about the map. If this map is an RPG, perhaps include some backstory. If its a Defense, maybe include a brief description of what we'll see in the map that makes it spectacular.
