|Hi guys, this is my very first map, so please don't be mean ;).|
I started out with something simple, not a complicated map.
This might be different because you get two free expansion, and one being very secured. I did this because I wanted a little difference in the map. It is kind of like Nemesis.
I think the second gas expansion is a little tight, don't you think?
Island expansion at 12:00, with a mineral in the way.
Seven mineral expansion around 11:30 and 1:30, you can block with a barrack or gateway, etc.
There is suppose to be a Neutral building (Xel Naga Temple) where 8 and 4 is, but the picture isn't showing. There is also a Creep Colony at 6:00, I put that because it seems like you can get 2 gas expansion quickly IMO.
Tell me what you think, but I only do this not to make a perfect map, but to be a better map maker.
In case anyone is wondering, (probably not) it took me about two months, since I'm a newbie, and trying to perfect it. I looked at a lot of Space Terrain maps and the comments to try to make the best map I possibly can.

|I like it , the idea is cool but I think its TERRAN favored tho.Because they can secure 4 expos relatively easy ,and 4 base Terran can do sow much.|
Also they can put some gay tanks from outside your base and snip at your mains buildings.T>P , but
T vs Z looks like fun.
|So what can I do to make it UnTerran favor?|
|Please, anyone help?|
How to make it more Protoss favor and less Terran?

|Put doodads in the outside of the base sow T cant kill ur buildings, at least. |
|What about the expansion?|
|And switch the positions of the minerals sow that they are closer to the middle , and that way they are more drop or muta harassable. Because note that all first 3 expos (Also main) are next to the wall ,end of the map which will make it almost impossible to go mutas or rever (almost impossible very large disadvantage. |
|So i change the 2nd gas expo in the midle?|
|Yes , change the mins not the map. And you could even change the mains mins 2 but with a goo room fore turrets I would recommend the space of a barracks or a little bit + |
And then map will be cool.
|Ok, I changed the Mineral for main so it could be bigger.|
I changed the second gas expo down, or you think it will be better if it was more mid?
Added more doodads
And again you can't see the Neutral Buildings.
|No man not that expo!|
Your main! put the mins and gas closer to the middle ,in the edge , and do same to your first gas expo 2!!

|Okay, I changed the gas expo more closer. Thats what you wanted?|
and i didnt understand the changing the main gas. did you mean by putting more mid and up or more mid and down?
and i changed the 2nd gas expo so there can be harasses.
|LOL man I cant believe it. You got it wrong its not write. I would do it 4 u but Im not in my cpu.|
Ok you have fixed 2c the wrong expo tell me if your main gives you your first gas what is your more logical second gas?
And the main I did not mean move it like that.
Ok last time if you dont get it this time il stop trying and if u let me edit the map In the way it should.
Ok do u know the map python? Now look at the expos 1 o'clock and 7 o'clock copy that Idea!
In the main.
And then we will deal with second gas.
|Um..can you do it for me :) |
pass is sademan

|OK il do it 4 u as soon as i get in my cpu 3 days :)|
|Ok man here you go I edited it give me your thoughts do u like it?|
This will even things out I think.
I moved the mains mins , and I arranged the nat expo(2nd gas)
|Thanks man , and can u tell me how u make the netural buidlings show on the jepg?|
|I use smdraft 2 and put save image , then I open the file with photoescape(Its a picture edit program) and the image already has the buildings, then I re size it and save it as a jepg.|
How do u get ur pic?
|i download the scmdraftjpeg, then i open it up and activvate it. computer/starcraft/maps/etc right click my map and the options will say 'make jpeg' and yea.|
this way is little bit simple but kinda sucks, cause it shows boxes as start locations (which i think looks ugly) and doesnt show the buidlings.
|Use SCMDraft 2, save image, resize, resave as PNG with some sort of image program. And don't get it from here, because the version here it outdated.|
Resize program: http://www.xemico.com/photogadget/freeware.html
And there are a number of image programs to resave with such as Paint.NET and Irfanview.
|Yeah i know no how to make the picutre better by saving the map and saving image from scmdraft and opening picture/viewer, copying the picture, and pasting it on 'paint' then i click save as and post it. |
I also added two ramps on the 2nd gas expo.
