I made this map for fun. It probably sucks to you guys. I've played on it with some people on B.Net that was real melee. It was fun, and they thought it was well done. HOWEVER! I know every single melee person here will probably say it sucks, but I want to post it anyway, regardless of your petty opinions towards this melee map! :bleh:

Here it is, the map I made for FUN, not to be made as a real "pro" melee. No one plays these anyway except the makers, if that. I stuck to the gas issue, and partially to the mineral set up, it's just that those straight lines of minerals are so ugly.. So I did in some cases half&half, but in other cases not so much. :)
192x192 Badlands, 8 Players. 8 mains, 8 min onlys in between in each player (totaling 8, not 8 in every gap :disgust:), 4 islands with gas and mins, middle expo with 2 gas and 2 min piles. By each player's base is a small min only with 2 mineral pieces at 750.

Scream, yell, growl, bite, tear apart the map, tear your hair out, I really don't care. I like it, personally, so I'm probably not going to fix it/scrap it, it's too enjoyable. It's inspiration is from the blizzard map (2)Road War, but mine's bigger and 8P. Let's see what comes of it.

...you NEVER use a size over 128x128 for melee play...
@Excalibur: Are there any exceptions to that, for example, an 8 player melee? or a 6 player? Because if you never used over 128x128 for any melee, that'd make things really squished for big melee games.
Maps for 6+ players can be larger but they're very hard to make properly. I really don't recommend absolutely anyone in this section even attempting it.
:lol:

WEAK Excalibur. WEAK!!!! >:( I am so disappointed in you. Try playing it with 8 people on B.Net, it's fun :D

Sure it sucks ass, but maps can be fun and suck total ass, you know. Look at all those sunken defense maps that are made in 30 minutes? Suck ass, but people love them!

Also, wtf kind of answer is that?




None.

NudeRaider shouted: The changes are all "under the hood" main reason for 64 bit is access to more than ~3.5GB RAM. Probably not relevant to Starcraft though.

Ultraviolet shouted: how do? Just open the 32bit exe from program files? Or is there something I need to change in the launcher app?
