Hello everybody,

Here I publish one of my creation called "Colonies under pressure" for until 8 players. This map tells the story of various new colonies in the south of France just after the end of the second tiberium war. Their main objective is to clean the territory and installing people but the sector at the north is still very infected and damaged. GDI obviously supervise and protect the operations.

Why these colonis are under pressure ? Because these terrible conditions at the north can potentially jeopardize the project. This stressful situation can also drastically reduce the interest for the project from the new settlers.


The map contains vein holes, many tiberium mutants and a very rough terrain. The size of the map is the largest possible and the atmosphere is very close to many infected firestorm map.

Well detailed big map, good effort on farm lands too.

Possible improvements:
- For veinhole placing, one cell is made lower by 1 height and then it
is placed on that cell. This avoids graphics glitch on veinholes.
- Cliffs and water shores could be corrected by going into framework
mode in FinalSun (Ctrl + F) and making those well connected.
- FinalSun plots faulty tunnel entries which results in units getting stuck
at one end of the tunnel. It replaces a directional entry with a -1 on
alternate lines. Those could be corrected by editing the map in a text
editor for [Tubes] or could use Rampastein's tool for correction -

Map also has some additional wrong entries, could clean up the whole
[Tubes] section and replot the tunnels again. In FinalSun's framework
mode (Ctrl + F), when the tunnel floor is placed, the coordinates for
tunnel entrance is visible as the crossed green cells.

Could take advantage of Q45's tool for plotting tunnels:

Other preferences would be:
- constrained starting locations could have more plain base building space.
- Bridge repair huts where it is not present, near some of the low bridges.

Looked on the map, layout looks interesting. Map lightning is great and makes nice atmosphere and I like some urban parts of the map. But there are things that could use improvement.

- The build areas are too small even for AI bases. Not sure if its on purpose, but
  the spawn areas could be 2x or even 3x larger.
- Cliffs on some areas have missing tiles C34, C39, C40
- Shores could use corresponding tiles fixes

Also worth to mention that Final Sun displays switched coordinates, so it needs to be swapped in map file and tunnel tools.
