I have yet to see any RTS maps for StarCraft which I actually like. Even my own Custom Dropship Wars doesn't come close to my ideas of what an RTS map should have. I have decided to rectify this problem by hosting a two-month long contest about RTS maps.

RULES:
1) Maps must be RTSes. An "RTS" is defined for these purposes as any map where you control multiple types of units in real time to destroy opposing units. (A "unit" is defined as anything which can receive orders.) Note that an AoS where all characters are summoners may qualify, assuming they can summon multiple types of units.
2) There is no specific theme.
3) Teams will be capped at two members. Testers do not count as team members.
4) All maps must be designed for at least two players.


DEADLINE:
All maps will be due on March 6th 2010 at 11:59 PM EST.

Current participants:
1) ClansAreForGays: ???
2) fritfrat: ???
3) ImagoDeo
4) Lord Malvanis
5) rayNimagi
6) Pukito
7) PearS
8) TM-Magic
9) Urahara
10) Lyoko367

Gogogogogogogogogogogogogogogogogogogogogogogogogogogo!

This viewpoint really annoys me. The point is to create something different, just like with any UMS map.

The point is, traditionally RTS games are made RTS by the ability to use multiple maps. Which is why most RTSs are mods.

So you mean make a map that changes techs, units, resource mechanics, and stuff like that? And not just make melee maps?

After my shocking disappointment with my RPG last year... I've decided to maybe join... I'll have to see about my schedule ;). But put me down as a maybe..? If possible that is.

Yeah scratch that.. I need to work on it and see about my schedule before I even think about this.

No, it's turn-based - NOT real time.

¡ Mar'ri mar'ri !
¡Sign me in, this is my first contest! ¡Indeed, i think this is my first post!
Oh, ¿it can be modded or only original SC:BW?



None.

Jan 8 2010, 4:06 pm PearS Post #16



so does this have to be a fresh new creation or what? I've got some warcraft RTS things i've done. I mean i can port it to a new tileset with new terrain and stuff if that counts? Also i did an Age of Empires map. nobody really played it before. Maybe this is a chance for it to shine =]



None.

Is there a list of official contest rules with more details I can get somewhere? Like I want to know if it has to be pvp or if I can submit something of mine that is already half-finished? (I mean it's half finished now, but I"ll complete it for the contest). And how original does it have to be, can I submit a remake of an old real game (it's not really anything like it at all).



None.

Count me in, ill be happy to finish a map^^
Would a game like Heroes Of Might and Magic(SC version) Qualify?



None.

Of course you can.

As much as I love mods, the point of this is to produce maps playable over bnet, so no mods allowed.

It has to be PvP. Reading first post ftw! :P

I guess your other ideas would be okay.

RdeRenato -- EUD can be useful but I need the "save game" of SCR. Thanks for the tutorial, it seems to work. The idea of using AI to order can also be useful to me.
