Oct 5 2007, 11:27 pm Grand_dracolich Post #1 Anyone who knew me during my melee phase knows this map. I just edited it (the original has 10 or so 50,000 crystals and two 50,000 geysers per resource patch) to have MUCH less resources. I'm still keeping a money version (with the similarly reduced amount of crystals as this) for personal use :D. Still, this map has 1 50,000 crystal per patch so players won't completely run out of resources (but you'll still have to expand).

The map's layout is interesting for a 256x96 map. Interesting enough that I made about 4 sequels, but none were as good :P. It has a river-riddled continant on each side (3 player starts per continant) and a series of islands in the middle (one player start in each of the two large islands). As such, 1v1 games on this map can vary greatly.

You do know that just posting a pic would have been easier...

Here's a picture:

A lot of this map is characterized by intense battles, by the way, such as the one between the Blue and Teal starts for the closest resource patch.

Obviously not created to be balanced, but looks like it could be a fun 8-player map. You need to work on your decorating, though.

Also, I really don't like money maps :/

My eyes...the imba...oh god...

Each player faces a completely different situation, with some fighing right away, and some having all the time in the world to tech up.

Well, even though it has 8 starts, it'll probably work a lot better as a 4 player map (the other 4 starts would be just for more randomization, then).

Agreed.Try to balance this map more so every race is able to win each other.If you balance this map it will have 50% more possibility to be loved by other gamers.

The terrain is too unbalanced. You have to mirror it... And some people are on islands and some people aren't.
Some places have high ground where on the other side of the map it doesn't have high ground which means that that place is easier to defend than the other place without high ground.
