make space maps symetrical next time
yeah I have a big trouble with the symetrical part...
It is supposed to be symetrical :)

Even space maps don't need to be symmetrical all the time. What is important is that you use straight lines. Well, not even that. The most important thing is to keep everything in the same style.
But "perfect" symmetry is the easiest way to achieve the mentioned things.

A map with such a layout shoud be perfectly symmeric, though.

I won't mention all the details, since there is one MAJOR flaw that renders the whole map useless: There only is one long, tight path to your enemy.
A map needs flanking room, alternative routes, expansions off the roads, stuff like that. Otherwise it's t>p, t>z and p>z.
yeah didn't think of that
i will redo it with some flanking improvement
(sorry for the nasty quality of the picture)
Certainly a LOT better. But actually it doesn't really offer flanking room ;) There are alternative routes instead, which is also a possible solution.

Some major things:
- Main bases too small
- a wider main path would be nice (the route your units take from P1 to P2)
- no command centers, you'll be associated with GriG.
- needs better expo placement, a natural would be nice
- expo@3 is RICH, but there are only 2 small paths to it. Rich expoes should not be that well protected.
thanks alot man tomorrow i'll work on these points
btw CC mistake, forgot to remove it, and expo@3 will have less resources -2 blocks of minerals and gas=2000/2500
gee, what did you do the jpg? :)

about the map: now you can flank, but the routes are still tight and a bit boring. there are really small mains, where you can hardly build anything, but tons of wasted space that could be used to enlarge the paths and the main. im not fancy with this expansion layout too. it helps turtling while there are so few and zerg cannot expand, which is not so good.
+ more buildable space @ locations
+ naturals
+ wider main paths
+ wider paths to rich exp @ 3 (looks like Batman logo ^^)
+ left corner expos become air
* Ctrl+F5 to see jpg if shows the old one.
