Cloud Castle Arena

Submitted by meatfactory
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A small, sky(floating) city arena with some nice visuals.
Good enough to be a screen saver, just press escape and see the magic. It has everything you need for a small hero arena or minigame map. It has walls that even Trump would be envious of. xD
Some weather effects in central part and the outer area, which are triggered in different times of the day.

Credits list updated. See the map in-game for best visuals.

The rules have been revised, so a quest log is no longer required. However, from what I can tell you have not credited quite a few authors. We cannot approve it until you credit everyone (missing a couple on accident / unable to find is okay,...

    Very nice looking map shame about the black on mini-map from the alpha tile but that isn't your fault and its worth it.
    Some small things and I know they are small things. The sized up rocks used for the foundations look a bit weird that large the textures dont quite work that spread, maybe try to shrink the rocks a bit adding a few more to fill in the gaps. Another option is to reduce the x,y,z dimension of the rocks to add more variation.
    Secondly the circular temple you used the wall end short model they dont quite line up. I dont know if you removed the pathing texture or not but if u do try to arrange them so it is one continuous curve rather than jagged edged.
    Apart from those small things I mentioned I really love the map. It is a cool concept not the most original but certainly one of the best I've seen would be good for a custom map or used in a cinematic in a campaign. I like the centre of the temple with the glass roof and fountain and the other islands are a nice touch.

    Overall a nice map featuring a well made and attractive design.
    I like it and those small thing I mention are for nothing else but your benefit +rep.

    The Black Area on the minimap and preview could be changed, no problem there. Rearrangement on the temple parts is a bit tedious process. Thanks for the input.

    Always check/recheck the Map Submission Rules! (Map Submission Rules)

    These will help make a better description:


    Screenshots could attract more players to download your work. Make the best of them.

    A credits list is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated.

    A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.

    To make your work run smoother, fix the so called leaks: Triggers - Memory Leaks and Custom Scripts

    If you want more reviews, come here:
    The Grand Review Exchange!

    ==================================================================

    Until the description and credits are fixed/put in, I am leaving this to Awaiting Update.

    :D Man your review is seriously lacking. Did you even check the resource or just spammed a generic comment for additional post count?
    Update review and rest is blah blah. No wonder people keep leaving this site. I don't know if you are aware, but considerable effort has been put in the creation of this resource and you brag about the description, which by the way has enough screens ... so let me tell you a little secret ->
    THE SECRET ;)

    ALMOST NOBODY GIVES A FLYING FUCK ABOUT DESCRIPTIONS
    A SPECIALLY FOR MAP TEMPLATES.


    Anyway I will proceed to add the credits soon.

    Please use a civilized tone. Credits ARE REQUIRED. That's why I've placed the link to the rules.
    I don't care about nobody. It's the rules. Take it or leave it. Nobody's leaving the site but whiners.

    Use the green Edit button to edit your posts to avoid spamming them one after the another.

    EDIT:
    this might be useful. Click it, in case you haven't noticed at the bottom of the opening post:

    You are posting generic comments devoid of any critique or actual thought effort. If you want a civilized tone, start doing your "job" correctly and give an in-dept review. Pseudo moderation is an insult towards the content creators.

    Sorry mate, Templates aren't my thing. I can see this is of quality. I have nothing wrong to point out and I ain't gonna write something nice just to please your soul.
    All I really require you to do, is put credits ingame too (Quest Log) so I can approve this and be done with it.

    Have more complaining to do, take it with the staff: https://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/staff-contact.692/

    I wont add credits inside.
    I don't want your " nice comments " . A resource can be liked or disliked, everyone has a different taste.
    I don't care for your opinion. You do not matter. I will outlast you and you will be yet another former staff member.

    Some of the models I've used are wow rips which I can't trace back to the source. Some of the models are edited blizzard models by me.
    All in all maybe missing 1-2 hive authors. If you have some info on who I missed it would be helpful.

    I mean, you downloaded the models from some site didn't you? Since they are wow rips, I guess giving credit to blizzard will suffice.

    Please credit the other models and things used even if you don't know the exact source at least mention the game and/or company from where they are.
