Here is much more info about the game
with screenshots, strategy's and tips:
Here for more info's

Game style:
The game is very focused on competitive play and strategy, giving the player control of a lot of different unit types, each fitting another role and strategy, with counters for each unit.
You will battle for control of the few Atmo's placed around the map, being the source of income in some way or another, each race has it's weaknesses and strengths, it's up to the player to use those efficiently.
Up to four players can play against each other in either FFA or 2v2; there will only be 1v1 in the tournament though.
Unlike other maps, you don't choose your race once the game has started, but already when you've entered.
Undead – Aliens, Orc – Predator, Human – Marines; while nightelfs are nothing.

Marines:
The Marines are the race with the most firepower, dealing enormous damage in seconds.
Unfortunately they are also the slowest and have the fewest hit points and armor of the three races, making them incredible weak to ambushes and close range attacks. This makes the Marines an extremely defensive race, they can build barricades, sentry guns and resource producing generators, can teleport to atmos under their control, defending is their best tactic to survive.
Marines see far at day, but have limited vision at night, their unit supply limit is at 25.

Predator:
The Predators have the most hit points and versatility out of the races, since each predator can cloak and heal itself when having enough energy, each unit is more like an army itself. They have close range and long ranged units at their disposal and with their speed they exceed in hit and run tactics, the race that is always on the move and fights for honor, to kill the ultimate prey. They have medium vision at day, as well as at night because of their vision technology. Their supply limit is at 16 only, giving predators few, but very strong units.

Aliens:
The Aliens are a fierce organic race that fight in huge numbers for total domination, their queen being the head of the hive, constantly lays eggs that require organic hosts to evolve. They adapt incredible fast to their surroundings, creating tunnels and hiveweb that gives vision and nourishment. They've got the fastest units out of the races and can produce some of toughest creatures in the game, their blood is made of acid, damaging their foes when dying. The more they fight, the more DNA variation they receive and the stronger they get, each killed enemy is a potential host for a new alien; making them an extremely aggressive race and is played very offensively.
Their vision at night is very good, but limited at day, nearly every unit needs to get close to inflict any damage and most units are rather easily killed from afar; but they have the highest supply limit at 45 out of the races.

    Well...Green Boxes appear once you pause, sometimes when I build/train/summon a unit/structure, they are knockbacked...like, I created a CommTech and he knockbacked a Synthetic. Also fix the descriptions of units (like the Chestbuster's). 3/5.

    You pause, and instead of the custom icon, you see a green box. That's what I'm talking about :wink:

    Brat boy, you've just earned yourself your first Rep!
    I'm giving it away so easily because I've played a similar version of a AvP man a long time ago and the only word that can describe the feeling of playing it was "orgasm"... Now excuse me while I play this baby!

    *Expect a review*

    Edit : Since there are too many bugs, glitches and so on, I cannot fully review this map, but I can name the problems the map is currently facing :

    - Aliens : If the Queen attacks anything before laying eggs, any of the spawned units (Facehuggers and so on) will be pushed to the side, much like the ability to knock-back units (Queen) ... has a pretty large AoE and happened frequently.

    - Predators : when self-upgrade as predator, you practically lose your gold or "pride points" (whatever they are) because by clicking on these upgrades, the icon disappears and no visible change occurs. Predator that has the ability to ignite units (flame thrower) can't damage buildings and so forth.

    - Marines... just seem like Alien food. No comment.

    Edit #2 : Every time you collect a skull with a predator, A PURGE SPELL ICON appears in one of the empty slots...what is this ?

    Game looks really good. However it still requires fixes. I hope you will release new version soon.
    And these green/purple boxes are just fails. If you imported model wrong etc.

    I don't know if its relivant anymore. But just about a week ago I played this map with two others (clan ARK if it rings a bell). We had a recurring issue where when we started the game either there would be more than 1 of the same race or someone would get stuck with nothing (except for that 1 pod structure... forget the name). Little details with the "nothing". The player who would get the "no units" would have the night elf hud. (considering that for predator you have orc, alien is undead, and marines are human).

    Things that should be overlooked:

    Here are a few things I found:

    -If say... 5 Ravagers jump on a Atmo, it dies before changing factions.

    -Blaziers/Blazers w/e they're called, should be able to damage buildings with their flames..

    I also think that you should make the creeps spawn faster, and the hostile human/predator encampments to respawn too, if they don't already.

    A capacity for the Queen should also be made because it's annoying if one dies the person can just keep making another Queen after the other dies and prolongue an already lost game. you should add a command for Carriers like, -carry on/off. And that Drones/Runners should'nt just take the eggs randomly and place them around unless you order them to.

    EDIT:

    Humans are WEAK and I mean weak in the beggining, any Predator/Alien player can rush them and they die easily. You should make the Gunship have an auto-attack versus enemy units, and make the humans more maneuverable in the early phase of the game. I played against my friend and he had 12 Hunters before I had 5 Infantry units and two Atmos.
