PGtour released new Mappack28 of October 2005 01:28 PM
Posted by:panschk[FP]

The very popular broodwar ladder PGtour released a new mappack.
Most interesting to us mappers are probably the fact that Travin's map (4)Kaiber made the mappack, and the new OGN-beta maps:

Calm Breeze by Ashelen


Hitchhiker by Forgotten_


Industrial Revolution by Ragnarok[Valkyrie]


Hae Bing Gi by Rose.of.Dream


Interesting is that industrial revolution as well as Hae Bing Gi and Calm Breeze use the technique of "building blocking", neutral buildings have to be destroyed to access to certain parts of the map. If you don't know how to do this, I offer a short description:
You need an editor like Starforge (Staredit can't do that). Now place buildings for Player 12 as sprites. It won't work if you place them as normal units! Now they should appear even in melee mode.

Well, after i saw the sugguested OGN maps already, i was really angry. They "shit" on pathfinding and just use these buildings to block paths. The idea itself is good.

I'm really looking forward to the upcoming tour, because most players will get angry because of the pathinding. but maybe not. if not, we can use this too, also mineral blocking as we already did a lot in the past. Also maybe they all whine and argue that these maps suck and Blizzard changes the pathfinding ^^

The only map displayed here which is good, is Calm Breeze. Industrial Revolution looks good too, but i dislike the buildings as said, AND, the other two maps are just plain stupid in my eyes. Hitchhiker might be interesting to play somehow. On Hae Bing Gi, a Terran can shoot your buildings from 360... smart design :/

btw, gratz Travin.

I already saw them on pgtour, but I thought about all them that they aren't outstanding :/
