A map request

Do you have a question on map editing, how use the map manager or want to make your new map public? Post here.

I would like someone to make a three player equivalent version of Duel II. And then, in the 3rd player spot, put a wormhole from there into the center of the map.

Someone up for the challenge?

hey, is this the basic idea you want? (except that you wanted a wormhole added for one player to the center, would this be a wormhole only usable by that player for a 1 vs 2 game)

the red nebula can be replaced by asteroids and a bit of the space reused for the more or less sheltered dilitihum moon.

i havent added any blocking and the geometry is a bit of so i haven't added the bzn yet

and i forgot to mention i made the map 15k*15k instead of 12k*12k. 14.7k*14.7k would have given the same amount of area to each player as duel 2 but due to the 3 sides some area gets lost. I'm not sure if i should keep the roundish perimeter around the map as without it it would give some hiding places in the corners.

Actually, that's pretty close. I like what you did with the lanes in the middle; good adaptation!

I would suggest the following modifications: Replace the red nebulas with asteroids with various nebulas 'peaking out' just a little bit. That'll make the map prettier (IMHO).

Then, without moving anything else around, replace starting position 3 with a wormhole to the middle. (and either remove the middle dilithium moon or the old starting position 3's dilithium moon. wormhole control shouldn't give exorbitant resources).

But take my feedback with a grain of salt - I'm no make making expert :)

Here was my try (I used Malta II as a base - thanks Boggz!) at giving the wormhole concept a whirl.

yeah the red nebula was just for my own orientation and while testing the map for size easier to adept then when im stuck with all that blocking.

i think the nebulas peaking out would be nice and with the mapmaking stuff im just fideling around with the editor a bit and couldn't think of a good concept so i thought to give your request a try:P

but you wanted a 1vs1 after all with the extra resources extra accessable by wormhole?

well i have some proliminary results here, i thought your colourfull nebula idea good but i just found out i suck at colourpainting therefore i filled the corners up with asteroids.

To me they apear playable and balanced, the 1vs1 has a bit much resources but i believe that was your request. But im not a expierienced player and dont play online so if anyone has some improvements in mind please suggest them so i could implement them. if the ideas are only visual please be very specific or feel free to do it yourself  as im not artistic:P.

im not sure what the custom is with map exchange? should i post the current (beta) version in the map exchange forum or only when i feel like they are complete?

there are 2 versions, your 1vs1 idea and the other is the 1vs1vs1 version

edit: updated the maps/text and added a bit text
