Okay I got it working. Here is my map. Connect Four! Complete with Observers that can bet and play a small (lame) mini-game as they wait for the game to finish up! YAY! Erm..Yeah. Im making more versions where the sound will work and the mini-game will be better and everything will just be happy.

After making maps for westwood games for years and the sudden resurgence of StarCraft in my house I've tried to port an ole favourite into StarCraft, I see that posters here just put a up a breif explanation but its always helped my mapping to post up like this

Red Alert
8 player map

256x256 Badlands territory

I've tried to balance positions with respect to expansion\defense.

There should be plenty of resources (i think I havent played it much :p)

The map is very open with a few natural boundries, I've tried to force players to rely on troops rather than holding bottlenecks

I've tried to decorate as best I could, trying to break up the monotonous plains.

I also tried to give certain areas a distinct feel\look to give players a personal touch to the area they are defending\exploring\attacking (It workeds well on large RA2\AoE maps where people associate thier positions based on decoration and not compass points)

Its my first SC map and hopefully not the last, so I need lots of advice, criticism, tips, enhancements or maybe even praise (not likely :p) on my few hours of work. Any bugs\problems I'll fix but feel free to take the map and mess around with it

The first criticism from the lads in the house is that the map is not newcomer friendly when playing against CPU players, but a quick look at the map on the editor gave them an Idea of some strategy of expansion

Hope you like it

One of the beautiful things about StarCraft is relying on terrain, rather than decoration, to mold your strategy. If your map is wide open, like you said, it will heavily favor zerg. Without some kind of period barriers, walls, terran is at a serious disadvantage. Any good non-money mapper would agree with me on this.

Can anyone help me???? i have created a TD and when i tries to air it on b-net, it said "file is too large".....
You need to decrease the size of your file name. It is a problem no one knows the reason for.

    You would probably have to take a loan to get the Rice cert it is like 14l
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I was hoping you were going to say you wanted to be a cook and wished to open up a Food Truck there are so many opportunities for that here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    you can only open the bar if you sell food and a food truck in the parking lot counts
  • The Helper The Helper:
    here in houston
  • The Helper The Helper:
    most bars are struggling to build food prep and even some I know are doing there own food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
