My first map!

Post by Claydoe » 01 Aug 2010, 04:37

Just like the title says, this is my first completed map. XD
Thanks to flaME, I was able to do this!

Editworld sux compared to flaME....
I mean flaME actually works most and is easy to use! :3

Anyways, here it is. Any comments on how to improve would be greatly appreciated! :lecture:

Hmm, let me post some quick feedback after a quick play before playing further more with your map

The map is somewhat well-oiled (but not like those boring NTW maps), the 8 oils on your base is enough to build a decent army + technologies.

Agressive oil capture can be the key of capping more resources in the great-oiled center of the map, the main focus of the success in the Warzone

Later i'll post more :wink:

LOL! Let me say that the ones that use editworld and are good at it, they are map masters! :wink:
BTW--- How do I get myself a good picture of my map like the ones in the add-on section? :hmm:
Mine is clearly too small to be any help! :cry:

It's simple:

Starts Warzone, then choose a map, no matter if you're playing skirmish or multiplayer, we're going to get the screenshot of your map.

Now pay attention: when you select the map (e.g.: your map) a large minimap preview will be shown, quickly press PrintScreen before the HUD screen appears again, then press Alt+Tab to exit Warzone without closing the game and open Paint.

Now press Ctrl-V to paste the screen you have copied from the Warzone map preview, then save the file any any format you think is better :)

Good Luck! :wink:

Which means not JPG, that'll be bigger and look worse than PNG. Oh, and you might want to use a small game resolution, to make the player position numbers large in relation to the map.

Hello Claydone :) I like your map :) It looks similar a litle bit to DesertCros47 but i think it is becuse of the cross clearly visible :)

And you should entitle your forum topic "my first maps" ;) becuse I hope you will continue on your creations :)

flaMe is also great for me :) but as it was mentione there are funs of both :)

And I also had big problems with making or rather inserting pictures on forum.. but good people helped me :)

Good work man :)

Go on creating :)
