The Horde:
You and four others are stranded in a city full of blood seeking zombies with forty-five minutes to find a way to evacuate.

Features:

- Upgrade weapons, buy stronger guns, buy items to destroy your enemies, free self heal.



Weapons:
- Starting weapons include: (Pistol, Uzi, & Shotgun.)
- Weapons to purchase: (M16, Beretta M9, & Magnum.)


Items:
- Med-Kit (train zealot.)
- Mine (train dragoon.)
- Grenade (train high templar.)



Starting point.


Trashed city.


Roof top zombie killing.


Exploring the city.


Gonna keep it short and sweet, if you guys have any questions contact me on here or my Bnet tag (Z)-[Leg4cy].

No offense, but maps with "survive for x minutes" are very boring to play. You should try to come up with a better objective other than beating the clock.

Someone should attempt Player Unknown Battlegrounds in SC. No idea how you'd do the shrinking circle though.

I do love the concept of zombie survival where you have to scavenge to progress, but Demon is probably right. Opting instead for something like you have to work towards an end goal instead, like scavenging fuel etc to power up a getaway car to escape the nuke. You could even make the end goals varied and randomized, so each game feels different.

EDIT: Demon I think you misread. I took OP to mean "you have 45 minutes to escape", not "you have to survive for 45 minutes." 45 minutes is the defeat screen, not the victory screen.

Omg this.

You'd just have progressively smaller locations centered in the middle of the map.

Issue order move to center when bring = 0 for the next smaller location.

Yeah, but how to visually represent the boundary to the player?

Hey, sorry I thought I uploaded the map but I guess it never did. I'll upload it tomorrow for sure and add some screen shots to the post.

Yeah man, decided to lurk around here for some nostalgic feels. Currently missing the SC decade spent making maps. Nice to see you're still working on maps! I'm good, how are you?

Yeah for sure man. I should sit down and start making maps again. Pull those all nighters eating chips making maps again like ten years ago. What happened to T-Virus? Or if I remember correctly his name was Curtis?

For sure, you should definitely get back into it, especially since Remastered is coming out soon. I haven't heard from T-Virus in a while, fun fact Curtis helped me with a lot of the terrain on this map a few years back and yes his name is Curtis.

I just realized that I never replied to this my bad! Yes it actually is what you mentioned about escaping the nuke rather then just surviving.

Side note: I should be releasing a new version of this soon along with an entirely new map as well.
