    That looks pretty sick. Imagine the building opportunities.

    chop down the palm trees

    but spawn area is small enough that you should be able to see it in plain sight when you spawn

    Oh, is that what it's supposed to look like. It was just a flat dull wasteland the two times I've visited servers running it. I'll have to try again once we get map resetting.

    Unfortunately for my tastes it still seems like even with resets it's just going to be yet-another shoot-each-other-in-the-center-of-the-map map that are all any server other than ServerBot ever runs anymore.

    isn't that what we ... always do? .. on every map?

    Green: Rush blue
    Blue: Build in middle, wait for green to stop.

    At least that is the impression i get from GEN/Customs.

    (Then again i can't ever find a server hosting Nothing's Gen addons)

    Traditional on gen maps was:
    - green: build defenses behind river (not at map center)
    - blue: rush green, build roads to rush green

    But there was still room for a lot more activity than that, that was just the primary activity (e.g. green tunnelling, etc). And Ben's generated map has a much wider front where people fight, which made the game a lot more fluid in terms of running into enemy territory unopposed and such, at least with only 32 players.

    The custom maps I'm talking about all concentrate the players into a much narrower area in the center so there's always somebody up there for you to shoot and to shoot you, removing most of the subtlety and turning it into a shooting gallery. Reducing the spawn area and making it a shooting gallery means that players are constantly respawning near the intel, undermining the intel capping gameplay.

    (Probably Ben's gen map would play similarly if we had 100 or 200 player limits, because this is effectively about player density in the playable areas of the map--custom maps reduce the playable area to increase the density.)

    I bet he'd just increase the map size at that point. I follow you, though.

    I'd like to see an island map that looks more generated then produced but each map i see gets me closer to trying my hand at one that is based around a generated map. The idea probably sucks and i don't see my self mastering voxed any time soon.
