  • Isle Of War by tGM [updated - v2.0]
  •  

    Well, this is the first map I've properly released to the public like this.
    It's mainly for those clans who don't have enough players for a big map like Mesa or Normandie even.
    This map is designed for smaller groups, from 1vs1's all the way to 6vs6.
    I know it's fairly monotone for the most part, but it's the gameplay that's important.
    It's possible something like it might be used for a tournament map in the future.

    Here it is, hope you like it!

    v1.0:
    How it was made:
    Used the pyspades map editor for the base shape.
    Then playtested with <@> + a couple others in a 3vs3, which brought about the extra ridges, buildings and the tunnel - all of which were made in-game. Would like to thank Ace, Dany0 and Blinx, who helped with some of those details.

    v2.0:
    Added trees, both willow and two types of ordinary trees scattered around the map, concentrated on the side without the tunnels. Thanks to Cpt.Crow for helping me create them and playtest a little.

    Having tested this map myself in a 1 vs 1 setting, I can say it rocks for small clan matches. 3 vs 3 is probably where the map is at it's best.

    @mikuli:
    1vs1's were fun :D jump-fu.

    I think 6vs6 would be pushing it, but 5vs5 and below would be fine.

    @FireJetDragon:
    Thanks!

    @Zherhec:
    Is a little, was just my way of making a narrower middle which branches out in order to vary base-play, and to try and get as much a % of spawns on land as possible.

    Well it needs more detail:

    Maybe a bunker or two on both sides, maybe even middle

    TREES!!

    More layers of land/Make it not so flat

    Nah, it's good the way it is. If you want bunkers, build them yourself. Maybe there could be a small hill in the middle though..? Anyways, the map is really good for small clan matches like 3vs3.

    Didn't think of trees... always thought they're a bit clunky - but I'll just have a test.
    As for bunkers - there are many half ruined buildings on both sides, you can rebuild most of them in under 10 seconds. And yes, the sides are fairly flat, though there are ridges extending on one side and a tunnel on the other. The ridges are tall enough to crouch behind quite happily.

    AWESOME.
    If pinpoint and gen had a baby, this would be the result.

    This map lacks chairs, I'll have to manually put some in next time I play.

    And it really does look nicer when there are some trees.

    I just realised....
    From a top down perspective in map view, it looks like a green dick :/.

    @Kanye:
    The map is open enough for people to build whatever defences they want.. including chairs if you really wanted.

    @Cpt.Crow:
    Yeah, you're right - feels less empty now. The extra trees around the bases are nice too, they don't affect gameplay much but they still add to it.

    @Zeke:
    Thanks for the idea.

    @Frosty:
    No idea what you are talking about, and don't try to explain :P

    Cool, yeah - the layout is fairly straight forward, but with the ridges it's subtly different.
    It's not really a map for the big servers, but as a smaller map, it's worth testing - I'll be hosting it on my own server every once in a while.
