I wanted to do something along those lines, but then also have buildings going up, above the camera to make a 'coruscant' type map for IW. The two big thing stopping me were the amount of feature work needed, and the large feature clipping problems.

For a rts called Men of War. Well more RTT than RTS.

We joined our forces together with behe and been doing this for some time. As you see It's near finished - thank god. However, lot of things can be still changed. We are open to suggestions...

To be honest it's looking a bit too Starcrafty, but it could be fun!

It's not a secret that It's very much Starcraft influenced, but if that's the only sin, I don't see why not try the concept for Spring games. I'm pretty optimistic it will work well...

Starcraft maps have huge chasm because they need a way to have barriers against Banelings, Reapers and Collusus aswell as drops. Chasms is also a way to set a map border only usable by air. That also makes air able to harass and attack the main bases from all directions while ground units must be dropped directly in the base.

In spring dropping units inside a huge chasms will make them almost useless as they can't attack the enemy from there. Exceptions are the commanders DGUN, spiders, dominators/merls/diplomators. Most ships will propably be unable to lob cannon balls onto the highground so sea play will most likely be obsolete.

Cliffs can be used abit like starcraft except that units ontop of the cliff need to go to the edge of the cliff to fire. I noticed that the Janus had a targetCylinder making it able to fire alot higher than it can far. Inconsist targeting methods in mods can cause problems for maps with huge chasms and cliffs.

The advantage is propably that air units can attack and drop the mainland from all directions making diffrent "map borders" for land and air units.
