Another Someone's-Maps-Topic.
Now it's my turn and I'd like to present to you my first journey into map-editing. Finally. :)


The Void - Second Edition (2 Players)

Features:
  • Complete darkness
  • One Dilithium- and one Tritanium-moon close to each player's starting point
  • One additional Dilithium- and Tritanium-moon
  • Nothing else - it's the void ;)


Named after the VOY episode I created this two-player map which is completely dark and shows the wonderful glow-effects of V3 PR. Maybe you get sick after a while, because it's quite irritating to actually see nothing.
If you ever wanted to really enjoy the new glow-effects: This is your map!
If you loved "The Void" (VOY): This is your map!
If you love the dark: This is your map!

Well, give it a try. Maybe you like it even more, now that the testers' input has been implemented. :)

Good hunting!  :thumbsup:

Downloaded and testet. I like the idea of endless darkness  B)

It was a little unuasual to see nothing but the glowing effects, makes targeting a little tricky. But the look of my base was very nice.

Thank you for sharing  :thumbsup:

i have to admit it myself its a pretty kickass map, things look very pretty when they blow up and the one moon set does sort of make it challenging... only i think there should defo be atleast two... let me state my reasons why...

If your the dominion your find it impossible to build a fleet.... for the dominion you need atleast two moonsets.. usually two and a half....

now the other reason is... everyoen will just destroyer spam which is no fun....

thirdly i just kicked the AI's but on hard... but saying that... that won't my recreated AI....

Thanks for your input guys and your compliments! I'm glad to read you're enjoying "The Void".  :D

I'll add an additional set of moons as you suggested, redmanmark86. When I made the map I didn't think of the Dominion in the first instance, that's right. So, there's a second edition to come.  :thumbsup:

I'd really like to take the challenge but I've got a frakkin problem connecting to games which hasn't been solved yet. :(


EDIT

It's done and I've uploaded a new version of "The Void" which should be more Dominion-friendly now. ;)
To download the new version please scroll up to the first post. The zip-file has been replaced.
:thumbsup:

AND: Since you seem to like "The Void" there's more stuff to come. :)

Here you go - the second map!

The Dark (2 Players)

Features:

  • Four sets of moons in total
  • Two bright suns in the center
  • Ice and lightning
  • A lot of blue color

Inspired by the TNG episode "Night Terrors" I decided to create this map. Though it actually doesn't have anything in common with the system the Enterprise was in back then. The eyes in the dark - the two ice-suns.
Well, this is your map, if you like blue, ice and one kind of nebula we don't come to see very often on maps. Actually it's designed to look nice.  :sweatdrop:
The next ones are going to be different and larger then, designed for more than two players.

I hope you guys enjoy this one, too.  :thumbsup:

Good hunting!

[align=center]Canceled due to incompatibility with later versions of FO[/align]

Teaser: Abandoned (6 Players)

So, finally here's a teaser for my next upcoming map. (Mean, isn't it? Weird.. isn't it?!  :lol: )

As promised it will be a map for more than two players!
Besides more opponents it will offer:

  • A large variety of space-beauty to look at
  • Dangerous paths to go
  • Ambushes
  • and: The Abandoned

Three pics for you to tease you even more ;)

The map is about 80 % complete. I've decided to make it a 6-Player map.
I'm going to upload the map after my vacation (in about two weeks) where I won't have internet. Stay tuned and of course:

Enjoy the pics  :thumbsup:
