(4) Singing Woods

Submitted by ChildeRoland
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is my first real melee map. I got no help from others, and made the map from scratch. If you do like the map, please make a reply or PM me! If you dislike the map, or want anything changed, then do the same, reply or PM.

Each gold mine starts with 27500 gold, and it is only one other goldmine, with 50000 gold.

It is two taverns, and a Way Gate in the bottom-left, and the upper-right corner of the map.

It is many lvl 2 Lightning Lizards on the map, and some better creeps, guarding the shops, the fourth Goldmine, and the Way gates, as well as a Fountain of Life, and a Fountain of Mana in the middle of the map.

Update: (11.09)
Added 2 Troll camps (one Green Dot and one Red Dot)
Added more trees,
Added more Enviroment Doodoads,
Changed the Acquisition range for creeps from Camp to Normal (If this makes the creeps attack bases, wood-chopping workers, etc, plz PM me)
Added map-description

    Well, face the point that you got one mine each and is fighting over one more. The drops from creeps is really, really easy to edit, and it is the point that they are bad/easy to kill, since it's only 3 lvl 2 mobs (except for the stronger mobs in the middle). And about the terrain, PM me screenshots over what you think sucks so much. I will add more doodoads/trees in the coming updates. And I can't see that you got so "many" maps as well, facing the fact that you got none. If you mean " I have a lot of maps on another account" you should be banned for multiple accounts.You have a lot to learn.

    [+] -
    [!] -
    [-] - No storyline about the map
    [-] - Inbalance gold resources
    [-] - Distance between gold mine and tree seems to be very far, AI player could possibly effected.
    [-] - Boss creep does not drop item.
    [-] - Lack of environment feeling, probably due to the lack of destructible/doodad and wild life such as stag.
    [-] - Distance of fountain and gold mine is very close. Give it a further distance

    Review : This map still need a lot of improvement to make it look better.

    The amount of tree at base is very less, rendering the Night Elf race having advantage the most.

    Also, it lack of the feeling of forest environment cause there is no single destructible/doodad other than tree could be found. Where is wild life such as rabbit, stag and squirrel ?

    This map still lack a lot of stuff.

    Another -21 points for this map.
