Please feature this map! :)

I had lots of fun fighting CircuitAI normal on this map, using Archers to send Recluse into the fog. The raaaarfog works nicely and doesn`t cause any problems with the steam version of Zero-K.

finally this map is brought back to life, nice job guys!

(Was quite ugly before with the disabled dualfog / ugly shallow waters)

I don't think it's quite feature-ready yet due to emergent problems with the unreclaimable features.

The features are missing energy and metal values.

The big rock features don't have proper names (it's currently "Seth_Rock_01" instead of "Big Rock")

minimum wind gen output is too high, add zkminwindmult on modinfo.lua


custom = {
zkminwindmult = 0.25,

Any progress adding metal/energy values to the features? :)

Also, playing on this will be just archer- and newton-spam as long as units can be killed by being tossed offstage... not a good prerequisite for a feature....

What`s wrong having different maps which prefer different unit types?
There are featured maps that give huge advantages to spiders, other maps are best played as rover or heavy tanks.
Heck, there is a featured map that ends up in nuke spam just about every time it`s played by more than 2 guys ;)

So.. why not a map that lets us enjoy newton, jugglesumo and archer?

cmon some features not reclaimable is not a big deal!
from strategic perspective this map is awesome... tight center with that more defendable hole for battlements, plus wide flanks to rush some mexes

I agree. This map plays terribly in large teams. Does this problem lie with the map or the people trying to play 16v16 on it though?

This map. Which has the description:

Optimal for 2 to 6 players.

Yet since it has been supported it's been abused for these games:

What map should be abused for 24+ player games then, CHrankAdminDeinFreund?

Well if you want to see lots of shiny, try nuclear winter.
Seth`s ravine is much better by now, same amount of porc, less amount of nukes.

The fog kills units too readily. I have seen Circuit send Fleas across this area only to have the Flea removed. Circuit also appears to get Fleas stuck in this area.

The shifting fog is out of colour balance with the rest of the map and makes it impossible to see where the edge of the map is. This makes controlling aircraft around the edge of the map frustrating. Also, any aircraft that stops and lands is removed, which is quite annoying.

That could be fixed by lowering the height level that triggers removal on the map's void gadget, which should be slightly above the water level.


This may have something to do with this and this engine issues, which should have been fixed.

You could also have a gadget that overrides the air mesh and keeps it high when over void chasms
(I use this)

ZK does not use airmesh, and I am talking about aircraft automatically landing. Ideally terrain could be marked as un-landable (causing aircraft to search further afield) but this likely requires an engine change.

to make this map less a berta map and more battlements, base mexes could be decreased, mexes on the flanks increased in value/amount
