A new map to be included with DTA 1.15. Click on the preview to see the megamap.

Interesting layout. I wonder how it'll play out.

I like how the south and north players have an access to the central Tiberium field, yet both paths can be guarded and essentially cut off by the middle player.

Perhaps my only criticism goes to the lack of variation in the  platform's texture. It looks very dull and repetive. Also, it could be just the compression, but on the megamap the southwest edges of the platform look very rough and wobbly.

interesting layout
detail is also good.
Only the top cliff looks a bit bland. How about adding some paved roads to it to give them a bit more detail?

This is one of the maps where I've had no pre-defined idea for the map. I just started placing down terrain randomly on the map and eventually it became this.

I personally don't think it looks bad. The clean texture gives it a nice contrast compared to the natural terrain around the platform. Although I probably would detail it a bit more if I could, especially the middle player's starting area (the platform tiles are new so aside from buildings there's not much that can be placed on them yet).

That's indeed just the compression.

I wanted to make the top of the cliff look like a rough place of not much importance (=> no one would've built a paved road there) that's so high that no trees can properly grow there. I think I achieved that feel.

with top cliff i meant the bridge/concrete cliff/high platform area that Crimmy mentioned as well.
Paved Roads end exactly on the tile border, so they should fit well even on the platform ground.
