Map Production Rules

1. Keep posts relevant and substantial.
Map makers love praise of their work, but simply saying "Awesome map!" is unnecessary as a response. Please add depth to your comments, praise, and criticisms. Why do you like the map or idea? Why do you dislike the map or idea? Include other comments, questions, and suggestions. Small phrases are suitable for PMs to the mapper. Alternatively, you can go into the DLDB, find the finished map, and compliment or criticize it by giving it the rating you feel the map deserves.

2. Double Posting
Try to avoid posting twice in a thread. Unless you are sharing major progress updates on a map whose thread has been inactive for weeks, please edit your post instead. If your topic has become deserted and is falling behind in the pages, you cannot force interest in your map. You might want to consider making a more interesting and informative production thread. :) (See below.)

3. Constructive Posting.
Posting simply to bash a map or its author is not acceptable. If you plan to criticize, do so in a detailed and helpful manner. Keep the arguing to a minimum.




For New Threads...

1. Titles.
Include the title of your map in the title of your thread.

2. Quality and Development
When posting a new thread for your map, please develop the topic post sufficiently. You might consider using the http://www.staredit.net/topic/8126/ to help yourself keep a topic organized. A well-developed topic post is informative and tells people about the map and its gameplay. Good questions that a production thread might address include:
a) Specifications: What tilesets, map size, min and max number of players, etc.?
b) What is the map about?
c) What genre is the map? If it does not neatly fit into a genre, what about the map makes it so?
d) What makes your map different from other maps of the same type?
e) If the map has a storyline or plot, what is it?
f) What inspired you to make the map?
g) What will the gameplay be like?
h) What features and systems will your map include?
i) Have you included any illustrative media, such as screenshots or video?
j) Will you include a version of the map for people to play, even if it's just a demo?
k) What progress have you made on the map?
l) What remains to be done? What are your goals and vision for the map?
m) Do you have an estimated release date for your map?

In short, please make an informative, quality thread that shows you care about your map and that we should, too. Do not open a thread for your map if you or the map is not ready for one. A topic that is found lacking in effort, uninformative, or underdeveloped may be closed or removed at moderation's discretion, with or without warning; you may then request the old thread to be opened or open a new thread for it yourself when you are ready.

RdeRenato -- If someone can help me, it will make me very happy xd
[2020-3-31. : 4:55 pm]
RdeRenato -- they are right. I don't know how to describe my level but it is difficult for two things: 1. crazy enemies 2. multiple defensive points
[2020-3-31. : 11:01 am]
Sie_Sayoka -- both because of low skill and population on west

Sie_Sayoka -- tbh a lot of the korean maps are impossible to play with pubs

jjf28 -- forcing players to be quicker means they'll have to multi-task more/up the APMs and use less safe approaches or have gotten the approaches down to an art so they can perform them quickly without much time to think

jjf28 -- I'd say best way to increase difficulty is to make the enemy units behave smarter, followed by forcing humans to move quicker (timers, or some mechanism forcing them forward), followed by beefing numbers/stats
[2020-3-31. : 3:39 am]
jjf28 -- a huge part of special forces is game knowledge, mapping out the spawn timings, what triggers different traps, what units combine into others, they're definitely not intended to be friendly games

lil-Inferno -- RdeRenato
RdeRenato shouted: people, how do you do to verify a super difficult level if you play bad? :(
get someone better than you to play it

MTiger156 -- Sadly, I've often seen the exact opposite happen. "Special Forces" maps typically try to kill the entire team within the first 60 seconds... try to stay away from that approach.
