Ok, so this is my first real attempt at a melee map ever. I tried to make it balanced and unique, but I know that I am no expert and there are many things I could probably work on.

I would love suggestions on how to make it better, aside from remaking the entire thing! I know some of you are notoriously brutal for melee map perfection and that is why I came here, for good suggestions, but then again please try to keep in mind I'm a noob and it's my first shot >
I worked a long time on it and I hope you think it is decent, I kind of sucked at the blending ramps but it's hard with desert!

One of my main concerns is that it may just be too big. Is this just me? Should I downsize it and squeeze into 96*96 or do you have suggestions on how I can usefully fill up space (if you agree)?

Any comments will be appreciated!

The map itself is kind of small, doesn't look 128x128 to me.

The map is fairly tight and flankless, and pathing is pretty linear.

The only real thing I can suggest doing to improve the map, is moving down the plateaus at top middle (12 / N) and bottom middle (6 / S) farther from the middle, closer to the edge of the map; and removing most if not all of the sunken pit stuff in the middle.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Ironically, I ended up moving the platforms UP, more towards the center, after I first played it and felt that the map was just too huge in the center.

But maybe it is too small and I was just getting an odd vibe or something.

I might shrink the sizes of the sunken pit stuff and...idk...make some better paths?
I moved back the north and southern platforms a bit. I also added high dirt sections around the middle as well as considerably more doodads (although you probably can't tell in that picture).

Any suggestions on paths, fixes, nuances? I appreciate any help! I'm trying to make this decent.

[edit] Just fixed gases, they were off a tile.
