A version without the crazy hover speedboost. Added to official.

Would it be a shame if this one got unfeatured? Decent 1v1 games are very rare (partly due to people just skipping the map if it comes up) here and I doubt it is of much value in the teams room.

I think it's a very interesting map, there are quite some unusual and unexpected strategies that are viable here.

Such as: mace rush, com rush, underwater scallop flank, roach/tick ramp bombing. Well i gotta admit that the last 2 seem interesting.

Or ships + terraforming mid :)

I with some heightmap rejiggering to allow more shallow water routes for non-water factories, possibly broken up with above water segments, I could see this working okay. However, that's a lot of work, and there is a lot of low-hanging polish fruit available in the maps-to-polish list.

I wouldn't unfeature it. I've seen some interesting games here. They're rare, but they do happen.

... and partly because of 3 slasher rockomm. Given the size of the starting area, it's ~1500 distance to attack. That is seconds.

I think the heightmap is just fine. The problem is the 8x6 part. Think about it, this map is even smaller than 8x8! Your enemy is less than 6 map-units away from you and there's a straight, level path between you.

Either position spawnboxes in opposite corners, or remake this map as (example) 16x12.

The shores here have small bumps and issues with hovercraft. That could be fixed with a remake. It is also quite a silly map with a very small rush distance.

This map is a handful unless you only have expert players on your team the combination of land and water, coupled with small size, makes ships very risky.

The map plays fine as a high elo 3vs3

Now I wanted to see that!
There are 34 3v3 matches played on this map. By looking at names/ranks it seems like most games had one newbie or more.
One match was in "experienced room" so I watched that:

Right at start hoverscout fails to climb shore, then it is usual teamgame air randomness, then it is sfireman: "lets re, it was fail", then it is some fail striders then it is a licho nuking coms, then a sumo on head.
I quote spectator ivoryking: "such terrible play on all sides atm"
I am not convinced!

Darkside except worse. Unfeature?
+3 / -0
Dispute "worse" on grounds: no reclaim, texture is not monotone.

Not disputing "darkside" though.

the only list this should be featured on is 'failed map ideas'

would it be easy to make a big version of that map?
+0 / -0
A bigger one with nicer textures and more precise shallows (depth 6 instead of 20) would be interesting-ish.

Do try if you want to see it.

I even do not know where to start... I would assume here on springrts wiki for maps. :-)
But I think if u have never work with maps before you probably spend 3 days to "just make it bigger"
