first of all , thanks for the reply , sugestions for the Scorched Monument Valley
the texture I mentioned is present in VargaRemix,
but I also think the map will become darker/Scorched if the nuke explosions are overlayed with current map

the sugestions for new spawn point and mex reduction are in this amazing image, showing all my paint skillz
Spoiler: show

Hello, new versions of the 4 maps are now available in the vault.

@SpeedyGonzales and @JoonasTo: Thx for the feedback. I integrated "optional number of core mexes" and added "disable expansion base".

I had some time to further improve the adaptive options for the civilian bases and their defenses. The civilian base and the defenses are now separated. And you are able to disable them or spawn it as wreckage or operational structure.

One more thing: Skyboxes are now included. Stolen from original FA (v60) maps, with newest FAF Map Editor and help from FAF mapping gang.

ADAPTIVE FAF ATOLL

Player: 2-12 (1v1-6v6, FFA, Phantom)
Size: 20x20 km
Prop value: 11.503 mass & 9.778 energy
-Latest version: 2

Info:
-Once I got the idea, I could not resist
-Due to the logos nature left-right is the default play style, but if you like rotational balance e.g. for Phantom or Free For All, just enable "Rotational" in the option
-Every faction is represented in 2 from a total of 8 optional civilian bases, but all bases contain: Seraphim T2 PD, Aeon T2 TMD, UEF Shields and UEF T3 PD to balance unit/reclaim differences
-Mapping tools: Inkscape (basic heightmap, marker planning, masks), World Machine (final heightmap, strata), SupCom editor (textures, decals, units), FAF editor (marker, props) and b2ag's mirror tool
-Heightmap fix: Enables T3 ships to pass everywhere
-Improved AI path nodes

Adaptive Features:
-Rotational balance?! (At default play style "left-right" all adaptive options are available. "Rotational" disables all options marked with a star* to remove resources that are unfit for rotational balance - use case e.g. Phantom or Free for All) --> default: disabled
-Dynamic Spawn Of Resources* (mirror slots (left-right), used slots, no mirror = no resources, XvX setup) --> default: mirror slot (left-right)
-Crazyrush (forward crazyrush mexes (first mex ring from center), crazyrush 1 core mex, crazyrush) --> default: disabled
-Core Mexes (3 or 4) --> default: 4
-Scale remaining resources (Mexes Near Outer Hydro, 2nd Mex Ring*, Outer Hydros*, Inner Hydros*) --> default: enabled

-Civilian Forward Defenses* (disable, wreckage or operational T1 - T2/T3) --> default: T1 wrecks (PD+AA)
-Land Wreckage* (disable, T1 - T4) --> default: T1 wrecks
-Naval Wreckage (disable, T1-T2) --> default: T1 wrecks x2
-Natural Reclaim Values(0-300%) --> default: 100%
-Regrowing Trees (disable, fast, enable or slow) --> default: disabled
-Jamming (adds 4 Seraphim jamming crystals to the location of Civilian HQ Base) --> default: disabled

ADAPTIVE AHSSA-SHI

The Seraphim just discovered Ahssa-Shi (named after god of reincarnation). The latest scans revealed that the planet is habitable, resource-rich and seems to have had large water reserves. Unfortunately the first exploring mission got somehow annihilated under mysterious circumstances at the landing site, plus the rescue signal was intercepted by the other factions. These events postponed further investigations, in order to win the battle ahead.

Player: 2-16 (1v1-8v8, 1v1v1v1-4v4v4v4)
Size: 10x10 km
-Props value: 46.426 mass & 51.436 energy
-Latest version: 5

Info:
-Improved AI path nodes
-Improved script to avoid vanishing decal glitch --> map-decals disappeared when optional structures (probably due to decal) & certain amount of unit footprint/track-decals were spawned
-Mapping tools: Inkscape (basic heightmap, marker planning, masks), World Machine (final heightmap, strata), FAF editor (heightmap fixes, marker), SupCom editor (textures, decals, units, waves), random prop generator and b2ag's mirror tool

Adaptive Features:
-Dynamic Spawn Of Resources (mirror slots, used slots, no mirror = no resources, XvX setup) --> default: mirror slots
-Crazyrush (forward crazyrush mexes (4 center mexes), crazyrush 1 core mex, crazyrush) --> default: disabled
-Core Mexes (3 or 4) --> default: 4
-Extra Mexes (spawn 4 additional mexes, 1 each in outer riverbed) --> default: 0
-Civilian Defenses (disable, wreckage or operational T1 - T2/T3) --> default: T1 wrecks (PD+AA)
-Wreckage (disable, T1 - T4) --> default: T1 wrecks
-Natural Reclaim Values (0-300%) --> default: 100%
-Regrowing Trees (disable, fast, enable or slow) --> default: disabled
-Jamming (add a Seraphim jamming crystal to the map center) --> default: disabled

Thanks for making these maps Svenni, they're very well presented.

I really like FAF Atoll. I was wondering if you have a version without the logo, that is symmetrical and perfectly balanced for rotational play.

I thought about it as well, but at the moment there is no version without the logo. I'm currently improving the AI marker and adaptive script for all my released maps. In that process I will also fix the heightmap for FAF Atoll, to ensure that T3 ships can pass everywhere.
After that I could fulfill your wish, but I cant promise anything. If I do so, I think I will replace the logo with a smaller ring or small center island. What do you think about the idea?

I like it, an inner ring makes sense if you keep the center mexes.

After I discovered a bug*, I reworked all of my maps to fix the issue.
*The previous adaptive script triggers the bug. Map-decals disappeared step by step when optional structures (probably due to having a decal) and a certain amount of unit footprint/track-decals were spawned. Now optional units/structures are called via "OnPopulate" to prevent the despawning map-decal glitch.

In that process I added:
-Spawnable T4 wrecks and jamming to all maps
-Extra Mexes to some maps --> @SpeedyGonzales, now 2 extra mexes are available in the middle of Adaptive Monument Valley/Flooded
-Optional 4 Core Mexes to Adaptive Sand Box

And reworked:
-AI path nodes --> thx to uveso
-Adaptive map options text to make it easier to understand
-Placement of Forward Crazyrush Mexes
-Fixed heightmap of Adaptive FAF Atoll: Enables T3 ships to pass everywhere

See each map for changes...

ADAPTIVE MARS - MANGALA FOSSA

RECOVERED DATA FORM CIVILIAN BASE:
-3833: Habitable planets have become a rarity, due to the still raging Infinite War.
-3840: Humanity established the first research station on Mars to conduct experiments on terraforming. Hopes were high.
-3841: Sudden long-lasting sandstorm lead to the crash of the control satellite. The experiments got out of control, resulting in the destruction of the terraforming facilities.
-3842: Station was abandoned due to economical total loss and evolving military conflicts on Mars.


Player: 2-12 (1v1-6v6)
Size: 10x10 km
Prop value: 48.377 mass & 20 energy
Latest version: 1

Info:
-Rotated real world map from the Mangala Fossa region on Mars. The heightmap was created from MOLA (Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter) data
!-The map contains an unique decal* to achieve an authentic look --> Thx to ozonex & DeathStorm for helping me create such a decal. If you like the unique decal try DeathStorm's map.
!-*Decal increases loading time by 20-30s (once transit screen freezes). Be patient its worth it! --> Any idea how I could improve the loading time? Pls let me know!
-Different 1v1 play style possible at expansion slots 11 & 12
-Small Civilian UEF base in the mid crater
-Skybox included --> source official v60 map "The Scar" (scmp_027)
-AI path nodes
-Mapping tools: Photoshop (prepare heightmap for WM), World Machine (final heightmap, strata, normal map), GIMP (decal creation from normal map), SupCom editor (textures, final props), random prop generator, Inkscape (marker planning, masks) and FAF editor (heightmap fixes, marker, units)

Adaptive Features:
-Dynamic Spawn Of Resources (mirror slots, used slots, no mirror = no resources, XvX setup) --> default: mirror slots
-Crazyrush (forward crazyrush mexes (4 mexes on the diagonal center line), crazyrush 1 core mex, crazyrush) --> default: disabled
-Core Mexes (3 or 4) --> default: 4
-Civilian Defenses (disable, wreckage or operational T1 - T2/T3) --> default: T1 operational (PD+AA)

Feedback:
-How do you like the resource amount/distribution? --> e.g. are there too many/less mexes? Should some mexes be bound to (different) player or 'extra mexes' option? Does some spawn possibilities create unforeseen unfair versus conditions (one player with 10mexes vs player with 5 mexes)?
-How do you like the reclaim amout/distribution? --> current prop value 48.377 mass & 20 energy
-Does terraforming (like in Fields of Isis) keeps you from playing on a map? Is terraforming a problem for you on this map?
-Does the increased loading time -due to the decal- discourages you to play this map?
-How do you like the map in general?
