Put a 0 value mineral block in the inaccessible expos. Also, take the the gas away from the third expo and move it somewhere else.

No, that gas is fine. Add a gas to the corner expansions.

Your main mineral formations are quite bad, try moving the far minerals inwards and the close minerals outwards (basically flipping it horizontally).

Your islands need to be blocked with a 8-mineral field so Terran can't float their CC there.

Also, Basilica is unbuildable by default; did you remember to replace the terrain with high flagstones?

Please fill up that water hole at the min-only expansions at the 3 and 6 o'clock positions.

Heh, I seem to enjoy the terraining part a hell of a lot more then the balancing, that backwards sunken ground ramp took me 30 minutes of joy and yea flagstones are there, i also found a crushed rock block that couldnt be built on but could be traversed without problem and implemented it like crevices.
Heres the edit.


Heres the file.

I recently had an idea about having a 2 geysers in the main and covering one up with a destructible non-repairable and non-creep-producing P-12 unit.
It's weird because I usually think P-12 buildings used in such a manner make a map seem sloppy.
Heres the file tell me what you think, I want to explore this idea throughly.

Players can still build on the geyser and mine from it, actually. Double gas mains usually have nearly doubled minerals and no natural, with both gas accessible at start.

Also that inverted ramp is ugly ;o

I hope its not the sunken ground ramp, I tried really hard on that XD, and if you could show me a link to a possibly better ramp plz do.

It's the top main one in this pic :P.


The ramp you have in the map you posted is good. Don't have to worry about that.

Not that I know anything about melee, but the honeycomb-like lattice-like raised elevation things are to block ground units without being "tankable", yes? I wonder if there's a way to fill all those holes with tiles that are unwalkable, but don't look unwalkable... Doodads or cliff edges may offer a solution.

Yeah, there are some crushed rock doodads that can block units.

Made some terrain and natural mineral placement changes and I would like to hear more feedback on this map

Your inverted ramp is ugly again :massimo:

Use the top main ramp in this picture:


Also middle expansions are blocked with a water hole, fix that too :P.

I'm pretty sure that's mud, not water.

I had used that ramp and unit flow was poor on it so i might just blend my own
