Posted by:Starparty Yes, ive been away lately. I have no internet at home :( BUT atleast ive done SOMETHING constructive... Ive taken a deeper look into Worldedit, the map editor of WarCraft III, and I must say that im impressed. Making maps to War3 is almost the same as making maps to any of the Heroes of Might and Magic games (for those who have tried that). Personalizing every remote part of the map is great, and upward ramps creates a whole new world of symetrical mapmaking :)
To show You just some samples of what can be made, ive uploaded my 3 -so far- war3 maps made these past days. They come in chronological order.
Well, as said, i think it's "useless" because as you see in the reaction of a WC3 map on a broodwarmappage, noone except us reacted, because noone seemed to have a glimpse of what a wc3 map should look like. that`s why it`s "useless" to post a wc3 mapmaking newspost of some of your maps on a bw mappage.
except that, i like your mapping work and i really would see us working on a page for multiple gamemaps too. But panschk won't change the site as he said and so i think that your wc3 work won't be honoured here.
it is really hard to balance war 3 maps. you have to balance the creeps, the shops, the pathing, and many other variables. Often times you have to completely scrap a map concept if you want to balance the shops and creeps. I can't tell from those small pictures if they are good or not.
if that path is as narrow as it looks on that first map and the only way around the map is to go through the center I can tell you it is very cheap for mostly small ranged units of night elf as well as protecting their fast expo with ease. Undead will just lose every match on this map to any race.
