Do you want to play-test upcoming maps?

Postby biass » 29 Apr 2016, 14:05

With the demise of the upload button, releasing new maps to the public has become almost impossible for the mapping "community", however this thread is for players who want to try and help mappers out and have some fun playing new maps.

Feel free to post your own maps up to be played and if you would like to make any videos out of casting/playing the maps posted here feel free to drop links to get some exposure here as well.
To play the maps, download the folder (eg map.v0001) and place it in your maps folder:
\Documents\my games\Gas Powered Games\Supreme Commander Forged Alliance\Maps

please pm me on the forums and give me your replay file, after playing <3

I have four maps to show off to the public, all for ladder. Starting off with the most recent:
im going over and redoing some currently, make sure to check back for updates

Originally "Veil of Stars" made by Arkansas, completely remade after Gorton wanting a pretty version because he loved it so much.

Find the map folder here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ts76gos1u8dm ... qUbma?dl=0
map has been updated to v2, make sure you have the latest version!

Third map is a remaster of Rumble in the jungle, named "Farce in the forest" it uses the far side spawns to create some very interesting gameplay.

Is there a way of having the mex/hydro locations on the pictures you post? Reclaim would be nice too.

Farce and schloob have the same reclaim/mexes, and for a snapshot of the reclaim on barrenlands/icestars, look here: viewtopic.php?f=53&t=11726&start=40#p125964

FAF generates the map previews with mex/hydro/etc locations when you upload them, but i cannot upload them, so i take screenshots from the editor instead..

I wish i had some preview videos or replays to show you, but to view replays on the maps you actually need the maps and well, i guess you could just look for yourself by then..

So I decided to test Crashing Waves, aside from too many wrecks on main island and the ledges leading to some of the mexes its pretty good. It plays a lot like Seraphim Glaciers.

Damn it, manread. I was going to say we should go into all these maps with no prior knowledge for the BO15 : /
Maps are important for FAF!

Hey all, 3 maps have been updated, here is some changes
~Barrenlands and icestars have the floating ice rocks removed
~Barrenlands actually works
~Farce has been corrected to the latest version
~ mexes have been moves away from the slope to prevent issues when building near them,
~ spawn slots 1 and 2 are now where 5 and 6 once were, so a ladder game will have players spawning on the far sides as intended

Barrenlands has been shaken to ensure mexes line up correctly
Barrenlands has had its mexes moved in a little to allow acu building them without walking

make sure to erase the old map if you had it in you map foler, and then redownload it from the same link! pm me if something is broken

Thanks!~
