Figured that given I've been skimming the site for maps and such for the last few weeks, that I really ought to drop in and say hi ;)

I'm not a terribly good player, but if anyone would actually want to play me some time, I could drop my contact info in here :) Though I've a feeling it'd be an easy win for whoever played me (all the replays I've seen, the players have more skill than I do so ^^ )

So yeah. Heya :)

welcome welcome :D

Ah, see...I've never actually tried making any maps. I've not got much talent for artwork and making maps seems similar ^^

But, I've tried out several of the maps on the site and liked most of them, just felt polite to drop by and say hi and so on and so forth :)

I mean I could certainly *try* making a map, but it would suck. Badly. :)

cool, i really appreciate that you want to play our maps :)
do you have ICQ? i recently started playing some single games again. add me if you want: 154528871

I have MSN and AIM, but I could look into getting ICQ if you don't have either :)

And despite what I said earlier, I found myself staring at staredit earlier...just don't expect much if I ever finish a map :D

haha, we all started out bad ;)

my advice, start with space tileset, a 2 player map, mirror things, and keep to straight lines :D

easiest way to learn the basics. when u got to the basics, continue with non-straight lines etc.

5pool started mapmaking this way, i remember his first map.. it was horrible on looks and there were many sticky things, but no look at paradise lost and see a vastly improve :P

i begin mapmaking with some sort of trash that i didnt and will never upload here, but some of my odd ideas still come from these maps..

its not hard to learn mirroring, symmetry is a harder thing to master

Cenerae, I'm horrible at artsy stuff too, but mapping is definitely an art form, and you don't need to be good at anything else to do it. Try it, it's very cathartic :D.

I'm always on West on friday and weekends. My SN is MuShuPork and my aim is eilanzo. We can play BWMN maps sometimes.

hehehe, its true panschk :P

just do what you like, try ideas, but never upload them lol. as long as your willing to learn and improve / perfectionize your maps you will do fine :D

Talking about map makers who improved a lot look at tktkvroom. Er although recently his maps have been not his best, but whatever ^^

And hey look at my first maps if you want to know what not to do in a map. Many people start with playable maps, I didn't ^^

My early maps are rediculous. Like, I've tried to improve them and make them playable, but to keep the original concept would mean to keep it unplayable =/

well i looked at TKTKVROOM"s earlier maps. doesnt look like improvement to me ><
2006, 10, 05 23:13
lol >< well they lack the positional and many of the racial imbalances his first ones had^^
