So you will be able to play whatever project you want on this map. Everyone in the Spring Community has been pining for some quality urban type maps. So here you are. This map has been in the works for several years, and now that spring is finally ready for it. Here you guys go!

Finally, people are starting to use features for more than a couple of extras to add to a map. Now all we need is the ability for units to pass underneath features which have gaps in like the water tower.

Sorry, I only assumed they couldn't after spending half an hour FPS'ing a Peewee on your Small Divide Remake. That was so much fun :mrgreen:

Hehe, well tbh it all depends on how the feature itself is set up.

Map looks great and I like it!

Except few things I told you to fix:
-Map is still very dim. the texture especially. Its almost all big dark mess
-Metal income for *A mods are way too high. Iirc I told you to make it 8/sec per mex now its seems to be 17...
-As also, you took the mexes out from sea spots... but i guess thats not a big problem, just my personal anger...

Well... I see that you are not in the forums, but i assume you read this message...

epic.

i don't think i agree with you artturi; i didn't get the feeling of dark/ mess from it; my eyes percieved the lighting as an early morning sort of setting.

i splooged. 10/10 for awesome

Right. I was wrong. Must have been sun reflected on my screen and made it look dark.

Anyway, one more thing concerning gameplay. All your features are reclaimable and loaded with m and e. That makes the map really resource heavy and thus metal spots almost useless and expansion pointless...

heh my theory on it is that part of the darkness issue comes from the map being so huge; when you zoom out it appears perhaps darker because there is a smaller percentage of light pixels, and as they disappear you largely see only the dark... was not a problem however on a playing level of zoom, at least for me

also i figure my eyes are more used to picking out units and details on sandy or grassy or snowy maps

hehe as far as the water absorb is concerned... i WISH the harbour near my house had such crystal clear sparkling water :D we need a /water 5 that has floating dead fish and garbage...

Looks really nice, and I was really surprised with the sounds!

But for metal/energy based economy I think this doesnt work too well when the features have all that metal in them.

No... I don't even have the latest version of Spring installed on my computer... but that doesn't make the map any less awesome.

Last time I played gundam, feature reclamation seemed to be an important part of the econ. I imagine this means that such map features are intentional.
