This is your life as a bug!

Following the law of darwin, only the strongest insects will survive. Your task is simple: kill, eat and evolve, but try not to get eaten by someone larger than you!
In your evolution, you will become bigger and adapt the abilities of the insects you kill.

Who will be the first bug to reach level 70 and rule the carrot garden?

- 1 to 9 players
- decent AI support
- fully written in jass

    I called all of my friends and made a super killing party full house(lolz:plol:).
    When we were like level 60 we atacked the giant plant, and it pawned everything thought we didnt have much food and most of us took two hits from it and retreated, but it was super fun cause everybody shouted on skype "For Spartaaaa" and other battle cry's and I got the feeling we were really fighting.
    And I found a place with giant webings but there were no spiders there.Are you planing on doing something there.

    Moco!! there seems to be a connection issue! People are getting dc'd in the start of the map, once it starts to zoom in before the countdown. I tried with Bot and i thought that was the problem, so i hosted normally, still happened. There is a server split any idea why???

    Map seems AMAZING though, rating saved, and very eagerly awaiting response/fixes

    Hey duke-zip,

    thanks for pointing that out!

    I'll have a look at the code right now - I guess I know what's wrong.

    EDIT: version updated! Let me know, if it is working now..

    Good map. I give a hefty 5/5 when the 10 days thing wears off. I have that because I am new

    So the map still is suffering from disconnect issues even with the updated version?

    I think the new version 1.7 should solve all desync errors left!

    If I ever decide, to further work on this (which is a simple question of time), these would be the things, I'll add/change:

    - 3 playable species (bug, spider, ant)
    - achievements (something like: destroy bee hive, get 100 score points)
    - score system (so at the end of the game you see a score listing)
    - more abilities
    - maybe different areas.. like a starting area for lv 1 - 10 or something

    But right now, I don't have any time to further improve this map. But maybe in some time later..

    Hey Tanasren.. yeah I know.. good suggestions for sure.
    If I continue this, I'll look through the thread for all of the older suggestions and ideas.

    The map is 96x128 and the whole size is used.
    Perhaps you think that it's not, because the minimap is hidden by an image that has to be of a certain size. I don't want the minimap to be used to get a feeling of being "lost". A real bug doesn't have a minimap or a map at all.

    I don't like the pic :p maybe just make it pure black..

    in the map Down-Right part of the map.. i think there's no passage to enter in that 1/4 part of the map and there's no unit or something in it..

    I highly highly HIGHLY recomend you change how the autoattack for ur bug works. Its highly anoying when your trying to do shit and your bug auto attacks the giant spider, or something else ur too strong for. Like maby make it so you can turn auto attacking on and off, because its useful in later game.
