I need suggestions on how to improve my map. I'm totally out of idea's.

Heres a short description of the map:
There are 2 teams, red and blue. It's a capture the flag type of game. Everybody is a sniper which kills with 1 hit. To shoot you have to press the attack ground button then click where you want to shoot.

Download the map here.

Latest version is 1.14.

Amazing! I found only one single flaw: It doesn't work.

Forgive my cynicism.

It works for me. Redownload it, maybe the file was corrupt. I just found a very horrible bug, I forgot to change the version ingame to 1.08. So I've uploaded it again.

By the way, what kind of window is that? I've never seen that before.

Nevermind, I just noticed that it's a mac, right?

Your map is of considerable quality, in my opinion. If this is your first map, it's very impressive. It is, however, still rather unfinished; It could use some more work.

There is only one neutral building in the map. While these can be easily placed on the map, they often increase the quality of the game significantly.

The ability tooltips are incomplete: You can't read the properties of the hero abilities before learning them.

The terrain is moderately varied, but has no rivers or lakes, which could be interesting. Also, I recommend enabling the players to walk on the cliffs.

There are rather few triggers: There are no special events.

Also, creep camps could make the long march towards the enemy less tedious.

Usually, the word "Hint" in hint messages is written in solid green. To cause text to turn green, use this color code: |cff32cd32TEKST|r. Also, you accidentally forgot to type a space between the words "in" and "front" in the first hint message.

Thanks, this is my 3rd map. But the first map that is decent in my opinion.

I'll change the terrain and the tooltips but what do you mean with the special events and neutral buildings?

I don't think I'll be adding creeps because I don't see how they would fit into the map.

Ideas for your map
(havent had time to play it yet, i will probally have some tonight)

Im not sure if you have this or not but if you do, you can just ignore it.

First blood -Displays the first person killed and gives extra gold to the killer
Double and Triple kill - Kills 2,3 units in a short amount of time for extra gold.

Weather effects, causes your heros to be weaker/stronger due to the weather state.

I tried to create the double/tripple kill things but it didn't work. If any one knows how to get it to work please tell me.

Nevermind I figured out how to make it work! Now if I only had the Unreal Tournament announcement sounds...

are ur remaking snipers from warcraft, or starcraft?

generally i think the warcraft version sucked...
the abilities and different height therrains really screwed it up
starcraft version was awsome, it actually required skill

Never played starcraft. And the warcraft version sucked, that's why I remade it.

I already got the double kill stuff with the UT2003 announcement voice! :D

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
