Artic Cityscape

deadline to enter maps: 2006, 01, 01 (Year, month, day)
23rd of December is the duedate.

I made this competition first and foremost to encourage competetive mapping, and I think that always results in nice maps being made. Let's see your best maps here.

Ok, the requirements:
  • Must be snow
  • well decorated (terrain and doodads)
  • Have 2,3 or 4 players
  • The maps can be 128x96, 128x128, or 96x128
  • The maps must have a nice balance of open and tight areas, ie: not Vampire
  • The maps may incorporate a neutral city; doodads and buildings can be used, as well as civillians. This could be a way to tighten an open middle to help that balance. This part is not required, but would be interesting to have. If doing this, make sure units don't act retarded around the city. The city is intended to be destroyable.
  • Obs versions are required if it's a 2 player map. Obs versions would be nice to have with the other maps too
  • For the overall feel, think snowy cityscape. This means use compound. For example, you could have a fairly tight neutral city in the middle with compound walls dividing the middle from the not so middle, with more open sides for expos and moving.
  • Maps with the gas issue will be removed from the competition immediately. Such maps can reenter once the issue is fixed.
  • I would apreciate it if you worried about wandering (see Antrax edge for what wandering is), but this is not required.
  • The maps must have nice mineral formations for the mains where a split is easy, and workers don't go around minerals and do stupid things like that.
  • Pay attention that the nat is not in the way of the main. Make sure there is enough room in the mains for building. I don't want small main/huge nat concept here.
  • Be concientious to all races. I would rather you allowed an early expo which defended the main too, but this is not a requirement.

    Good luck and have fun. There is plenty of time to make these maps. I will be making the final decision, but I will consider the vote's winner too. I encourage people to vote on the maps after the 23rd, because it shows what your fellow mappers think of your maps. For making a map, if you have any concepts you would like to use for the map which either violates the requirements, or you are unsure about the requirements, please leave a comment here or pm me.

    Antares
    well maybe I'll submit one
    LGI
    For a birthday party WE NEED BEER!
    GriG
    I have idea. Map who win receive beer pack!
    Antares
    oh can it be an island map? now i have no ideas for a ground map on ice with the stuff and deco as you written.
    Antares
    ...that you have written
    LGI
    What's wrong whit the island map? You have to be a gosu to balance Z on an air map.
    Nightmarjoo
    Island is fine. Just make sure you balance it for all three races. Just because it's an island map doesn't mean the races don't need room to flank. Bare in mind that giving zerg a bunch of free gas won't balance it because zerg air is pretty strong once they get hive tech. Muta/devour > terran air, and ovys aren't hard to bring to stop cloak. Muta/devour/scourge > sairs and carriers most of the time, especially if p can't use storm or paralysis. Mutas are usually used against terran using gols in ground maps, in an air map with less room for ground units I'm sure it's still the same. See boxer vs yell0w in the super fight vod on neo jungle story. Mass mutas > mass gols, even when the gol user is boxer =/
    LaO-Artanis
    or see nada vs chojja on bifrost, gols > lings + mutas :P
    Nightmarjoo
    lol bifrost anti zerg -.-
    lnept
    no, chojja just sucks :P
    LaO-Artanis
    You're saying that because of diffrent maps gols suddenly own mutas? Why are you giving an example using Jungle Story then? :P
    Nightmarjoo
    lol true. In fact in the vod you can see Yell0w spamming "Terran Map Terran Map Terran Map" in the loby :)
    Nightmarjoo
    will no one make a map for this? Are you guys making one or do you just not care?
    Antares
    im making :)
    Nightmarjoo
    lol well no hurries, ima push the deadline sometime soon, and take out the birthday thing since it seems to be bothering people. You can still incorporate happy birthday if you want though ;)
    Antares
    easter egg :)
    Antares
    tomorrow i will submit IT. beware my map will own you :P
    Nightmarjoo
    oh noes in soviet russia I pwn your map!!
    Nightmarjoo
    oh noes it is tomorow and I do not see your map! :O
    Nightmarjoo
    oh noes it's tomorow's tomorow ><
    Antares
    yeah but im seriously doubting now, i need to revise my map so deep..
    Nightmarjoo
    lol you have what, 12 days left?
    Nightmarjoo
    hmm at the moment I'm leaning towards happyguardianday for some reason...^^
    lnept
    antares i neeeed your help ^^

    how did you make sure the starts on montsegur were balanced? i cant get the distances because i dont understand how to use the coordinates, it never comes out even..
    Nightmarjoo
    lol wrong place to be asking, he's more likely to see it in a forum post =/
    Antares
    hehe i see it here very well:

    so i planned it so deeply.. at first i 'cliffed' the center of each mainbases by tile. one tile is two square high and 4 square width. then i created the island and i compared its distances from the mainbases by counting tiles. lot of time. then i created the diagonal to be perpendicular to these distances. i mirrored a lot, by diagonal, but its very hard. randomly made things could work with less time and less stress :). i also used that a lot. but one important rule: beware of judging by sights. it could easily be false.

    lnept
    yea i really wish they made it the same top to bottom and left vs right ffs T_T i have a lot of ideas for maps but i can never start them, so i always compromise and end up with shitty maps.
    Nightmarjoo
    lol you guys should make some maps for this competition. There is no limit to the amount of maps one person can submit, so long as they follow the guidelines.
    Nightmarjoo
    10 days til the deadline. Is this a 2map competition? I had hoped to see some maps from Nasty, LGI, and some of the other senior members of bwm. Not even 5pool or spines made something. I expected lnept or Scout to try something too. You guys can't make maps anymore? You guys letting the newcomers defeat you?^^
    ScoutWBF
    It's all about MotW!I'm not gonna make maps for fun competitions without one win! XD
    lnept
    i just cant start the fucking map ....those montsegnur start positions are so hardd to balance im not good enough rofl
    Nightmarjoo
    lol then don't make a montseguresue map :O
    Antares
    yea my map gives a name to a maptype :)
    Antares
    hehe i have discovered a new issue and now im trying to find the suitable correction for that :P
    Nightmarjoo
    lol
    Antares
    well i promised to submit my map a long time ago, tomorrow i will do it even if i get hell criticzing comments :) now i havent got time for deep play testing, so its a bit randomly balanced. tomorrow: debugging and uploading
    Nightmarjoo
    that's fine. If you upload it before super testing then we can help edit it. You don't have to submit a perfect map^^ that's why it's called beta heh
    EffectHypnotize
    when does this contest end? and can we submit more than one map?
    Antares
    yeah, nightmarjoo have already written this somewhere above, it ends 21st of november so 3 days left
    Nightmarjoo
    hmm hypnotize shevlin is a good map, the only thing it's missing for this competition is the city aspect. Add some neutral buildings, or make a doodad town somewhere prominent, something like that.
    Nightmarjoo
    Hmm should I push the deadline farther? Nasty is working on two maps, and who knows if anyone else is. I would be fine with this; every map made for this is very good imo, and I'd like to see more great maps.
    Antares
    i will update it today, but yeah probably need if you want more maps submitted (who wouldnt want?):)
    Nightmarjoo
    deadline pushed to the following tuesday.
    EffectHypnotize
    nightmarjoo ill do that.
    EffectHypnotize
    guys i have a question about all the wierd links in a few of the forums. such as pimp my map section. wtf are all those links?
    panschk[FP]
    spam from spambots. I hope they are all gone now...
    EffectHypnotize
    k
    Nightmarjoo
    any more maps??
    Antares
    nasty's will come, wont they?
    EffectHypnotize
    when is deadline again? 25th?
    MillenniumArmy
    It says at the very top...

    "deadline to enter maps: 2006, 11, 28 (Year, month, day)"
    EffectHypnotize
    u think i would scroll all the way up just to see the deadline for a contest that i am in? jeez.

    thanks, ill look next time.
    Nightmarjoo
    Nasty is being slow, but he has 2 maps he's making for the comp =/

    Millenium Army uo like making snow maps, make one for this comp :)
    EffectHypnotize
    i cant seem to make any nuetral city work for shevlin, is this ok?
    Nightmarjoo
    yeah no problem. You could post something in the forum about how to get it to work, I know a few here know how. If you can't get it to work it's no problem. The compound covers the theme I spose.
    EffectHypnotize
    ill do some more stuff with the compound i guess, just dont want to compromise playability with looks ><.
    Nightmarjoo
    yeah heh
    EffectHypnotize
    is it over?
    Nightmarjoo
    No it's not over, pushing deadline. Waiting for nasty... And I think Sneezed was for this too, wouldn't want to leave out maps considering how few there are at the moment.
    Nightmarjoo
    The deadline will be the 25th of Kislev, the last night of Hannukah, which happens to be the 23rd of December (for those who go by the Gregorian Solar Calended).
    Nightmarjoo
    >< Calender*
    EffectHypnotize
    yea we need like 5 or 6 more at least..
    Nightmarjoo
    Nasty guarantees one more, I might make one for this, and lnept said he might make a space winter on twilight >< There's 3 more, anyone can submit as many as possble maps as long as they work with the comp. I'm not sure how lnept's if he makes it will follow the rules, but I'll have to see^^
    EffectHypnotize
    damn i better make another map then
    UrzaTron
    *confused* how does Metal Age have a vote already?
    Nightmarjoo
    the deadline for voting had expired and Artanis voted before I pushed the deadline for entering maps.
    Listoric
    Happy birtday?

    Whats a birt? O_o
    RaDiX
    yeah.. "happy birtday" roff :D
    Antares
    shevlin or sneezed. hard. i guess i pick shevlin for now and this is hypnotize's far best map ive ever seen. ohh argonne and tengu are hard competitors. well i admit that i could change my vote later (according to tests and gameplay-wise)
    LostTampon
    metal age seems to be a nice map
    Nightmarjoo
    lol who added argonne? And who added Tengu? I guess Tengu fits the theme :)

    I guess nasty will never make his map =/

    where is birtday coming from??
    Antares
    well, when will the decision be made?
    tktkvroom
    me & nightmar tested shevlin & only things I could really spot was the distances, just seem really far to me for a 2 player map. I guess the rest was alright. & nightmar raped me on it with 7 hatches OH NOES!!!!
    Nightmarjoo
    hey guys reps would be appreciated, I'm busy as fuck and haven't been able to test these maps; and I want to get a few reps on all of them before I make a decision. So far I've played Shevlin twice, I like it; the mains mine pretty slowly for some reason and as tk said the distances are fairly long.
    Antares
    well i cant play, i have exams hard as hell. lot to learn. so two weeks and i am free.
    Nightmarjoo
    I added Northrend shores even if it's late -_-
    Antares
    well only just the votes are missing..
    NastyMarine
    make a newspost Nitemjoo!
    Antares
    well half of the 'experts' didnt vote yet :)
    lnept
    ok now all the experts voted.



    lol jk
    Antares
    will this close ever? perhaps making a newspost to make people vote, but whatever.
    Nightmarjoo
    thanks scout :)
    Nightmarjoo
