"Hello and welcome back to my blog"

I'm dumping some pictures of a 5km for posterities sake.
I'm about to mess with the layout right after this, so I won't bother posting a full map thumb. You'll get that when i release it.

The current working name is Nehtotka Twinmaidens or something like that. (Neh ~ tot ~ ka)
It's not part of the 5km mapping tourney, unfortunately.
The unique avatar for that is done and waiting on Giebmasse to wake up, so stay tuned.

Layout changes went pretty well so I'm releasing Nehtotka's Twin Maidens now.

I'm going to start adding actual lore based descriptions to my content too, here is the description for NTM:

"An Earth Empire colonist and a wizardry fanatic, Nehtotka Arcanis sacrificed hundreds of lives in an attempt to gain supernatural powers he believed lie within the two volcanic entites on this planet. While he eventually succeeded; the Empire did not hesitate to destroy the whole region, citing they chose to halt the spread of alien mutation."

The map is 5km and allows 1v1 and 2v2.
And here are some more pictures I took (including the thumbnail)

Enjoy, hopefully it's in the next pool but the backlog of "new" maps to be entered is so high and the team can only put so many in before people start complaining.
(It's at v2 now because i forgot to test BPB)

Crashing Waves is now at V7: made the following changes after watching some nice pro games :imfine:

Moved one mex away from the starfish-like underwater formation to inbetween the core and natural expansions.
Spaced out the underwater mexes in the middle

Moved a large number of mexes closer to their respective cliff faces.
While terrain constraints still make frigate raiding a hit or a miss in some spots, Destroyers (minus seraphim, maybe) no longer have any issues.

Hopefully that makes my old garbage map a bit less of a mess.
(i'll bug petric to update the pool now)

Nehtotka's Twin Maidens is no longer at V3:
- Removed the radar wrecks and the centre crystal mass prop in the hopes that people will not just walk ACU middle and draw every game.
- Updated the description.
- Got annoyed by the reviews.

Nehtotka's Twin Maidens is now at at V4:
- Removed the centre mex in a further attempt to stop the aformentioned.
- Moved the off-centre natural mex down the ramp to next to the hydrocarbon plant, moved the hydrocarbon plant down a bit to compensate.
- Moved the mexes in the biddle pits to their respective bridges.
