Jungle Ramps map.

Video quality is worse than I thought it would be, because youtube sucks, but I've been informed its still being processed and thus the quality may improve later. If anyone knows a better place for me to upload a 140mb 29 minute video, please let me know.

YAY. VIDEO GUIDE!!! But the downside is that it takes longer.

I watched through it. And it seems good, rather more so that if anyone that views this will have less things to yell about then you usually might have to. Albeit, I don't see you yelling much lately. Getting tired?

What do you mean "you people"?

What's with all the lines around 2:30?



None.

You might try Vimeo for better quality video, I'm not sure how it compares to youtube high def though.

Nice. I like the introduction on making mains and nats. I thought that geysers placed on the left were supposed to be placed one grid tile up so that they're not perfectly lined up with the starting location. Is this wrong? :|

The difference is very minor.

@Everyone else:
The 'you people' is all you shitty people in this section who refuse to read the stickies and think I have the time to come in and deal with shitty map after shitty map that you put zero effort into. Locks are going to get more common and I am going to be giving severity for maps which have had zero effort put into them. No one should have to look at your half-assed attempts of lazy willful ignorance.

The lines and other flaws were due to programs I was using during the re-encode I did, I've never used any of this software before, and thus I wasn't aware it was going to do that.

I'm adding parts 2 and 3 now.

"..since I cannot get you people to read a fucking sticky about what you should do to make a melee map, I figured I'd make a video because reading is much too hard." - Excalibur

Favorite quote of the entire video.
Congratulations, it doesn't suck ass. It's actually helpful! Look at that.

A possible reason why some people in some cases, including myself, can't "read a fucking sticky" is probably because you don't word things well enough when you post them. That is just my opinion, however. I could see someone ridiculing my opinion right now, but I could care less. You have videos now, so when someone asks for help I imagine you just refer them to your videos. Yay! ^^

Another awesome quote, "... unless you're looking at me to yell you, and I will [see]. We all know about that.." - Excalibur

Good job.

I was referring to the melee mapping guide which I didn't even write. I find it extremely clear and informative and I think people just get scared by how long it is. Its long because it has all the information you need.

Another thing; You say "half-assed attmempt" [- Excalibur], when my most recent map took all the effort out of me. I'm sure other people's works are the best they can do at that given time. You STILL probably haven't even looked at a pixel of my map, I'm assuming you assumed / are assuming it sucks ass. Reasoning? Personal quarry here, everyone else don't mind this:

1) I ask for your opinion, don't get a word from you.
2) PM you you to *please* take a look and what you think. Still nothing.
3) Posted the subtitle to ask you to look, STILL nothing. All I want is a simple opinion, but [and this is an assumption, correct me if I'm wrong] you don't *care* because you *assume* because the fact that my previous maps sucked so bad [which they did :teehee:] and that this one might also.
Maybe you just haven't gotten around to it? I don't know, just asking for an answer here when I don't really want other opinions.
Anything?

Also: I'm referring to your posted advice, not the melee guide. I actually read the melee guide, I'm sure no one else has, though.

You're actually one of the less shitty in the section thus why I left your map alone. Other maps demanded my attention for sucking more. :P

But I threw you a reply anyway.

I haven't even recorded it yet. I may do it tonight or tomorrow. Allow 2-3 days for editing/uploading.

Does youtube not allow over 10 minute film sections? Because you said the last one is 29 minutes, yet there's three sections?



None.

Youtube has a 10 minute limit for most videos. I really hated having to split it.

I just realized something.
The video is ahead of the audio by 3-4 seconds. Watch out for this when the 4p rotational symmetry vid comes out.

martosss -- Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet shouted: martosss So you've had issues with maps that were previously playable having issues with the latest patch as well? I was play testing one of my creations a couple days ago and it crashed the game, something it has never done before. Has me feeling kind of concerned about playability of custom content going forward :/
Yes, I definitely had issues with maps crashing or dropping people in the start(Zerg Special forces SE)... Also Spellsword RPG was unplayable last time I tried it a week ago. I might try it again now, seeing that the KotK map is fixed. Also there are many sniper maps that are broken. I unlocked and fixed Sniper rabbit - again the locking caused it to crash so I guess it would be playable like the KotK. but I don't know about the others. I personally feel bad about strings messing up many UMS maps currently ... and Spellsword - that RPG is epic

Vrael -- not really two-party-system specific but it was kinda a big deal when those old guys wrote about "unalienable rights" and that stuff
[08:54 pm]
Vrael -- Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: basically i'm saying two party systems sap the violence out of a population by giving them the illusion of choice, instead of feeling the need to rebel, they just say "well i'm not voting for you next time"
you kinda missed those minor details about how fundamental rights are baked into democratic systems so you actually have power to change the system (to whatever degree you wanna argue), whereas in other systems your only option is "no u", aka it's not an illusion of choice
[08:52 pm]
Ultraviolet -- what are you trying to accomplish here?
[08:51 pm]
sraw531 -- similar to how people farm scarabs.
[08:50 pm]
sraw531 -- was toying with the thought of trying to get a computer to continuously make nexi in the corner of the map and have triggers remove it occasionally, but I honestly don't know how to do that.
[08:48 pm]
Ultraviolet -- sraw531
sraw531 shouted: is there a way to create using triggers a building that is under construction? (Especially protoss, for multiple reasons)
afaik this is not possible
[08:46 pm]
sraw531 -- though ~3400 units on map is also an improvement considering reavers are 11 and carriers are 9 units.
[08:45 pm]
sraw531 -- GGmano
GGmano shouted: Yea see it describet as ccmu fix
I think my favorite part about ccmu fix is probably the 400 weapon limit. 100 is so low, considering 10 valks is 80 of that.
[08:41 pm]
Ultraviolet -- Suicidal Insanity
Suicidal Insanity shouted: Ultraviolet The devs are fairly good about backwards compatibility, just sometimes takes time
Fair enough, random crashes are always scary though :P
