|Some interesing concepts you got there, but the whole map is way too tight. Open it up a lot, then other stuff can be discussed.|
|i agree with spinesheath. the maps you're making shouldn't just be pretty but should also be racially balanced maps.|
ie. tight middle and no battle ground area = T map :
|um.. I think this map has different concept.|
But, this map hasn`t right symmetry.
P.S I`m Korean..
|This is not opened up at all. I said "a lot".|
@scv1121: No need to make a map perfectly symmetrical. It's one way of positional balancing, but not the only one.
|Symmetrical balance is boring to look at.|
|please dont understand me wrong,but there are some basics that have to be respected in evry map.as example you dont have even one open place that u can use for a battle.those tight pathes help just t.zerg and protoss need open places otherwise they r doomed.this is what we call a race imbalance.a other problem for a small map is that your nat,as for me first expo,is too far away.perhaps the mains are also too close.and,my dear,3 entrys for each main is a challenge even for the best players,thats for sure.the placement of your resources need to be fixed.and other things...|
so you see,you have here alot to do;just if you wanna become in the end a decent map
|Should I just completely remove all the random Outpost terrain on the middle high ground area?|
|I would suggest it.|
|yes i agree|
|By the way: Naming conventions.|
Your map lacks the (#).
|I really appreciate that you got away from the typical main>ramp>nat>smallchoke layout.|
If its playable has yet to be proved but I think it is.
Concerning racial imbalance that was mentioned above: I think the fact that the mains are so open gives quite a disadvantage to terran in the beginning because he has to defend heavily vs lings/zeals. Once he manages to get tanks with backup though it looks like he'd be in a pretty good position. But overall I think a map should be played first before you can make judgements about it's balance (if the layout isn't obviously stupid as in Hitchhiker for instance :P).
Taking a second look I have to agree that this probably is a T favouring map. Nonetheless try to test it Spartan.
