Can anyone help me by making or providing me with a jungle map that's 256 x 256?

I would be very grateful since I'm not the best mapper and definitely not anywhere near a terrainer and I am pretty sure there must be some sick maps ready for me to use but I can't seem to find any in my super hard and extensive search which involved creating a new topic and not searching at all.

This is for an upcoming mod so you'll of course be given credits.

The map must include but not be limited to jungle terrain, sick blends, awesome transitions and beautiful landscapes.
Pathing is not an issue, map will be used only by air units.
Must have some water patches and stuff.

HOWEVER there's a catch:
The terrain must not include anything that might have been "built" such as temple, non-natural looking doodads or terrain decors like metal things on cliff edges, etc.

This should be a pretty fast map, I don't want anyone investing a whole lot of time on it when I am not willing to do it myself.
If you need more information I'll gladly answser.


fuck you all

You may already have considered this, but if you don't need ground units perhaps Crescent Dyne would work, if you are willing to exercise a bit of copy-pasting skills to remove some terrain that cannot be built upon.

Upon re-reading your post, I realize you meant you do not want anything in the map which looks to be "man-made," i.e. you want everything to look natural.

Still, I think it is possible that with proper modification Crescent Dyne could satisfy your needs.

Yo, Corbo.

I've done a bit of terraining-ish bits of stuff in my time, but I'm not entirely clear on one thing:
Is this supposed to be a pure landscape map, or one that includes base positions? I assume that a particular map for a mod would have something to do with a campaign or mission and whatnot.

Just landscape. No need for start locations.

Here, I threw together a decent looking air unit landscape map.
I put in minerals and vespene geysers to add some ambiance to it all, which you can of course remove at your leisure if they are unwanted.

It's possible that there are some metal bits in the cliffs in the map that I missed, since the campaign editor ("Ew, he's using the default map editor?") likes to put in some of those randomly when you place down high terrain.

Edit: The attachment doesn't seem to have worked properly. Let's try this again...

SolarHound -- Hey if anyone can, I made a post about an error I get opening a SCBW map with SCMdraft 2, need any help.

And I am now splitting all of that up into real UI and real data, to support multiple classic trigedit windows =)
oooh, multiple windows will be good

not on github and probably won't ever be. Starcraft strangely uses the player's CD key in order to create the in-game text. since scmdraft also uses the in-game text, there is code in there that harvests the cd key out of your SC install

i dont think so. Windy landings like that are far more common than you think. Just youtube. There are a lot more scary looking things like that. Also on fucking 747s and those things weight tons unlike this aircraft
