  • Custom Map Directory
  • 12
     

    This may be taboo but I'm going to post this in here as well as support... So I've doubly searched the forums and I was just wondering if there was a custom map directory. If not then that would be an awesome tool for the forums. Sure there are a few collections here and there, but that leaves a lot of smaller maps that go unnoticed for one odd reason or another. Maybe just a post (like this) with as many links as people can find to custom maps with (hopefully) a name and author.

    Probably a separate "maps" forum from "mods" would be nice.

    You have "Forest River"; the full stb collection has a lot more maps though most never get hosted: Caves, Forest River, Incomplete Fortress, Skybridge, Rainbow Towers, Sinc, and Slope, and now I just released Jungle. All of these are generators, not just maps, so there can be many slightly different maps with this name.

    There's currently a "BlueFlame Jungle Map" which is some kind of islands with jungles.

    I know there are two city maps (not counting broville or harbor)--there was the original one that had a bunch of gigantic buildings and a wall down the center, and a variant (I guess) that had lots of holes everywhere (I only ever saw the variant). But there was also a totally different city map I saw once which had sewer tunnels under the roads.

    Crossfire (the map looks like a big X).

    There were two "icy" maps I saw, one which had narrow paths east and west at the top, and big ice chasms east-and-west between them, and another which was mostly water (I think) but then iced over islands.

    Vastland is another new one.

    There was a "winter forest" map, forget what it was called.

    No custom map list is complete without Paradise, El Alamein, Frozen, and Incomplete Fortress

    I have just the thing you guys are looking for... a fresh forum dedicated to helping AoS players find the mods maps and tools they need.
    The only thing i lack, is you!

    come join the 4Q forum and help me index everything useful for this game :)

    There's also the existing AoS wiki, which I'm pretty sure has a list of maps somewhere that's never been updated, but which might be worth using instead of a forum thread so that it's actually editable.

    I do use the AoS wiki from time to time, but like you said it hasnt been updated in a while.
    Either way, what I'm trying to accomplish with the 4Q forum is a place to easily find everything for the game, but with constant feedback and user reviews

    Regardless of location, I think it's important that we can upload and share the maps. I like to design, share, not necessarily host a server... :D

    heres a zipped folder containing all the maps i have
    NOTE: the map named The Shadowlands is a map i made, that i never really got worked on, so ive had plans to re-work it for almost a month now. its only in there cause i didn't feel like re-uploading the whole file just to remove that one v0.2 map

    Yeah. A map maker forum or guild or something would be a good thing. I find the forums here to be fairly useless. I got more feedback on my Urban Tank Fight
    while testing them live in-game than I do on here. I appreciate BloodLvst stepping up but his forums seem to be for a clan or something and really, nothing personal, it's just more of the same thing we have here in the official forums as well as the 'unofficial forums'. It would be nice to get just a map makers forum.

    its not fantabulous, cause i just went on google and clicked the first free forum hosting site :3

    I've updated the wiki using MegaDeuce's and my lists:

    http://aceofspadeswiki.com/index.php?title=Custom_maps

    Ideally this would be linked somewhere on the wiki that was more accessible.

    Some maps I wasn't able to find in the forum any information about them. Feel free to update.

    I chose an arbitrary threshhold for notability, I hope nobody will find it inappapropriate since I'm one of the map creators (about half my maps passed it).

    If anyone wants to copy the data from there to here or to some other forum or wiki, feel free (if you work from this specific version, then you can copy everything starting with "well-known custom maps" verbatim, because all of it was written by me and I am granting you a license to copy it, regardless of the license on the wiki (i couldn't find one).)

    I believe the unknown titled map "A city map with very large buildings" is meant to be Urban Warfare by PZL.

    Juke|ProNabb also created an edited version of this map with holes blown into everything, also titled Urban Warfare.

    @nothings You left Sasquatch out of the wiki? He's made a slew of pretty good maps. List is here: http://ace-spades.com/forums/topic.php?id=2393
    He doesn't seem very active the past few weeks though... I am glad I "made the list" but I do take exception to the "only one notable map" but other than that it's a pretty good list.

    As far as people running out and starting up free forums, that's fine but is just going to leave us in a similar situation to what we have here with "official" and "unofficial" forums with different people on different forums with different obscure names...

    Well, I basically limited it to maps that had been named in this thread, plus I have never seen any of Sasquatch's maps hosted, so it didn't pass the notability threshhold for me, nor do I have the ability to describe the maps, so it wasn't worth it. Feel free to add them if you do think they're notable enough!

    Also I figured you did other maps, but if so I don't know which ones. As soon as you have a second one on the list you can get your own section. (Although maybe that structure is a terrible way to do this, I dunno; see the talk page.) Also, I wasn't sure if you'd rather go by "Buffet of Lies" or "Buffet_of_Lies", I guessed the former, but if not, feel free to fix it.

    @nothings Hehe... Fair enough. to be honest I wouldn't know how to describe his maps either. He has one that is a pizza! I just like them because they have a nice handmade feel to them. But thanks again for making that list.

    I'll try to add images to all maps...

    Enari, go to the wiki page I linked above, follow all the forum thread links, download all the maps from those forum threads.

    Thanks for taking this on - I think it'll definitely help grow the game's community while encouraging interesting and new map designs and experiments.

    I just sent you some <very> brief descriptions of the maps I sent (and one more I'd missed).

    Oh man Enari, you beat me to the punch :D

    So apparently you can't edit old posts, so much for maintaining a forum map list...

    could you zip your maps and send them you me?

    (directory for each map containing map, txt, images)
