I played TA on this map.

Nothing for tanks - too step. Even kbots need a lot of time walking uphill.

I don't know if/how ZK handles map speed differently, but crabe-players will surely have fun.

76% probability of mnematic error: TA should be read as BA, accept correction?

I find it really hard to believe you managed to export it into OTA format.

The remaining 24% probability consists of him meaning Tech Annihilation. :)

Oh, actually that should be more probable, considering neon's special ability skill power technique of Level 8 High Ambiguity.

Tech Anni is different. You can morph your com to T1.5 eco and make more space-efficient energy drillers + 2.5x (was 3x) better mexes.

In ZK you may get really good wind on these hills (especially there). while in BA/TA it is hard to place them with this highmap (less slope tollerance afair).
I don't like most other wind-maps - wind gens are ugly :)

... why is this marked "Special". I mean, with those widely-spaced start-mexes and rough terrain, I'm sure it isn't good, but "special"?

Some kind of automatic tagging? Many, many maps have been tagged special since the very beginning.

There isn't any "last tagged by" record for this map, so this hypothesis sounds plausible.

I've now re-tagged it as land hills 1v1 (judging from 10x10, should play about proper).

Unsure if should actually feature.

I felt like mashing buttons, so i featured this map.

This map does not fit ZK. The mexes are too far apart for one thing.

I like this map's heightmap and texture, in all their ruggedness. Vehicle pathing is surprisingly good, I could see myself going lv on this map in 1v1.

The ZK metalmap can be tweaked with lua. This map doesn't even have metalspots in its texture, so the layout can be literally anything.

In any case tho, metalspots shouldn't be added to the hills. They already give a significant advantage to bots; adding metal to them would remove any chance of vehicles being a viable 1v1 choice here.

There are other sparse-mex maps. Having 3-mex clusters is not a requirement afair.

Perhaps a variant of this with more mexes would be good. Right now I see a lot of stalling and very rarely more than 20m/s. I really like the texture and heightmap but that metal spot layout seems to leave the map with bad play in ZK unless each mex is 5m/s, which would lead to porcing the mexes.

Actually it has "1v1: yes", because

Should change?

I'm not sure it ever came up in 1v1 either though, so tagging chickens:false.

It never came up in 1v1 afaik.
