    The additional use for water units or so called 'ships/navalships' are very much a good boost for real time strategy maps, especially when the map is alternated melee, I very much enjoyed it, since the use of ship units is few while giving it a purpose gives in a lot of value in game play and tactic.

    The Lost Race is quite a unique set of race to be played for the map, unlike the usage of Naga race this different set of build seems like a mixture of Night Elf and Undead hybrid to what I've tested so far, very much its up to the players to decide how they'll manage to play out this wonderful set.

    Overall, this is a must altered melee to play.

    It actually turned out looking a bit different but still pretty same, how you like the final results? I think I'm gonna test this one as soon as I get to the computer with Warcraft.

    Question: did you include the sea gates or not? I can see the Holders but not the actual gates.

    Edit: Oh darr, I just realised that I forgot to add "wheat" to the Southern field. >.<''

    Edit 2: Oh darr, I just realised that you did not include the gates.

    Edit 3: Oh darr, I just realised that I am editing this for the third time. But did you manage with the ramp fixing? They are no edgy anymore?

    The gates are there. They aren't in the same place.

    Yes I fixed the ramps, thank you for the advice.

    Okay, I tried it. (I am not so big fan of altered melees as I have no idea how to play and I don't want to lose). Haha.

    However I saw a few changes.

    Firstly, I am not sure if you wanted it, but the Gate holders are red ones, you can replace the Red Power Generators by blue ones, the blue model can be found from "Doodads" section, they have same animations.

    Additionally, I am not sure how are you supposed to destroy the holders, atleast I wasn't able to do so with the Lost race.

    And at last, as you edited the terrain near the bridges you failed abit, you made the edge of the water come visible. (The water just ends in to square shape and then there's air between the water and land). (North-East part) (West from the white walls).

    The gate holders are untis, you simply have to attack them with a ranged unit.

    I will correct the terrain. Thank you.

    When we have time I will play a few games with you if you like.

    I'm guessing all these "Btt" maps have the same custom stuff? If so, may I ask what is the fastest way to "copy" all of the custom stuff from 1 map to another? Including imports etc. I tried "exporting all object data" (and the map script) but it didn't seem to work. Didn't give it much thought, though, so maybe I just forgot something.

    As far as I know, these maps are protected. "Exporting all object data" means exporting data from the object editor, not the models and textures used. Protecting map pretty much makes this data un-openable, which means that you cannot export it.

    I still do think there is a way to get the imported resources out, at least by asking Kam.

    Oh, no, sorry, I wasn't asking to copy stuff from this map. I was asking how did he copy the stuff from one of his maps to all the others to do it myself with my own maps. Did he just Exported object data and script, and imported all custom files by hand to each one? or is there a way to actually export all of the imported files at the same time?

    I don't want to copy other people's work, I was asking for advice on how to make my own pack of maps with the same features. I probably wasn't clear in the first comment. :)

    Yes there is. For triggers and object editor data I use the built in function in WE. For imports you can export all but it does not preserve the file path. MindWorX and Spellbound helped me on this.

    1) Get WEX if you don't have it: SharpCraft World Editor Extended Bundle

    2) Make a folder somewhere for all the exports, it can't have any spaces in the file path. This is mine: C:\Users\Kam\Desktop\BTTExportFolder

    3) Make the following trigger in the map you are exporting from, and save:
    [​IMG]

    4) In the map you are importing into make the following trigger, save, and restart the WE:
    [​IMG]

    5) Disable the import trigger after you open it again. Disable the export trigger as well otherwise it will export every time you save.
