Hello,

My map is getting about 20 mb now, does somebody know what is the maximum map size?
I don't want to finish my map in 2 months and see that it isn't working because of the map size :)

20 mb of terrain? o.o
Are you sure about that?
That's would be pretty much every inch of a max sized map covered with doodads?

haha not that all but I got kinda solution:

about 40% of the map was unused so I deleted it
I created the map over with 164x164 but I still got about 10mb to terrain now
Yes I placed a lot of doodads but it's not nearly the whole map, I guess it's about 10% map

Well for some reason it has changed to 5mb and ONLY 6kb when compressed

that is a HUGE diffirence, how can I get it compressed?

When your map is saved, the terrain will be automatically compressed down to 6kB and saved into your file. When you load a game, the Terrain data is uncompressed to 5MB.

6kB is very small. That is equivalent to a medium sized map with absolutely nothing placed. Did you have a blank map open when you looked at those sizes?

And the maximum upload size is still 105 MB, not 120 MB.

Also, open the overview manager(F12) and press Triggers in the components list. Take a screenshot and post it here.

Here's Cruiser Command's overview as an example:

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
