This is a map based on Starcraft 2's Polar Nights layout.

(Click for full megamap, 5MB)


Please note the little crates you see in the megamap are invisible ingame and used to prevent players from building in silly places, like along inaccessible cliff edges.

I updated the download to fix some of the big slopes.

It's a very nice looking map, but there's alot of unnecessarily unbuildable terrain.

That's not what I was talking about, more just the blocked off terrain by crates, I mean, I understand the cliffsides, but why the parts next to the base exits? It's a quite large piece that you could set up a defense on.

Ah, well because theyre inaccessible. It would've be fun if someone managed to build something on there and really fortify it or drop some infantry.

I've been playing on it with D-day too. I'll need to edit the ore & replace the tech buildings etc, but it will make a nice edition to D-day's meager list of maps.

Just played the map with a friend. I love the roomy layout. Its great for 1vs1 battles. The terrain is very good looking so thats also a plus.

One thing that could be changed: i had the feeling there are to many tech buildings in the map for its size. Also, i dont like that the oil buildings are places at the back. I feel like the tech buildings should provide one player with an advantage. By mirroring them the players get an equal advantage = nobody has an advantage.

I would suggest removing all lower groud tech buildings (airfields, repair shop, top right and buttom left oil building) and replace the forward bases with oil buildings.

This will reward a more agressive player. Also having less tech buildings around motivates people to use a mcv to build a forward base.

Anyway, its a very high quality map. Thanks for posting it

You are probably right, thanks for the feedback. I might do another version in future then, try improve the lighting also (which is hell on snow maps).

yes, the tiled lighting needs to be improved. It's really blocky.
Though on snow maps you can only use very subtle/faint lighting, due to the plain color of the ground that makes the tiles very soon visible.

Some more small slopes here and there could also make it look more natural.

Agreed. These almost scream like "build defense here". The cliffs would provide such a nice protection against cannons and raised range/sight of the high terrain would be a bonus for the defense too.

That's why I blocked it in the first place. #Tongue  Putting 5+ Prism Towers or a Grand Cannon on one of those cliff islands would be too powerful IMO.

Easy enough to edit out anyhow (the crates).

Nice map though.
