Era of islands maps is over but ppl manage to make those maps happen again.

This maper no longer has an April Fools to excuse his poor maps. Although this shit looks fun to play via carriers.

it's not a standard island map, though, it looks like all of the islands can be accessed by mineral walking workers across those fortress style sprite gates. it's a very interesting concept, especially how zergs can expand faster since they have overlords to give vision of the minerals.
I didn't test it, but you might be right. I can say that at middle you can glitch worker to get into another side. Never checked those mystic gates.
In its current form, though, Zerg can probably expand too fast, compared to the other races.
Especially PvZ would probably present some major problems: Zerg can easily grab 3 gas very rapidly (while also getting easy scouting info with their ovies) and Protoss will be contained on one base (and basically blind) until their first corsair comes out. By the point P can actually expand, Z can probably just deny them at will with massive muta flocks, and on one gas, there is no way for P to pump out enough Corsairs to counter it.

Where there is a will there is a way.

Good update, removed drop spots and added worker movement minerals.
Its a cool map.

2 gas in the main? cross spawn only? Take out the gates? Are you serious? None of these sound like a remotely good idea that would work with this map, on its own or in any combination...

The best way to further your agenda would be to actually forge it into a nice map to do it for you...

I think using the "infested geyser" mechanic in a double gas main, as suggested by me in this thread would probably work out rather well.
how exactly does the infested geyser thing work? only z can mine gas while the building is still there, but anyone can mine once it is destroyed, am i correct?
That would be the basic version. You can also twaek it, so only Protoss is mining-impaired.
Version 1.00
- finished deco
- debugged resources
- stacked gate minerals 6x to make denying tactics a bit harder
Its so fun. The potential for sillyness is extraordinary, well done.
It's not silliness, it's clever strategizing!

Scout with worker, deny scout by mining out minerals, sneaking in scout through backdoor anyway, or denying that as well, expand fast, deny expansions by mining out minerals, proxy a robo, pull workers to destroy Pylon... It's an island map with all the tactical finesse of a ground map!
Just uploading some more map packs for ASL submission... I guess I did not upload the final changes to this one I did half a year ago or so...
I like it. Reminds me aesthetically of
