Toroidal Maps?

Post by Kixu » 06 Apr 2011, 17:27

Would this be possible? The average amount of players in games is escalating and the best product of this is interesting game theory. The worst is skilled micro being replaced by the necessity for repetitive economy build orders for the first 15 minutes of the game. Toroidal maps would resolve this issue.

Dont flatter yourself, pxtl.
Kixx, rendering them would be impossible without massive engine rewrite, but making a map that 'shares' edges via teleports on the edges is possible.

Note that the pathfinder would be unaware of these teleports, so you'd have to provide a waypoint in the teleport-zone to get the desired actions.
