    i played it and my suggestions are:
    -gate to war and gate to ice are weaker than the other races because they are better fitting as a support but not as a powerful single race

    -make sell to a spell and not as an unit (will remove the stupid rallypoint setting)

    -the air units for grey should fly more iin the middle (currently they fly next to the walls)

    -the food limit offers only very small mazing. maybe you should get some extra food with the 2nd builder

    First, thanx for playing the map and posting your meaning.

    -gate to frost: Ok, i will make more damage- and less support-tower or write in the tooltip that this race shouldn't be used at the beginning.

    -gate to war: I think gate to war has many damage tower, but many "normal" attack types, so I will change some attack types, but i don't think they're to weak.

    -Sell: will be fixed in the next version.

    -Grey Air: will be fixed in the next version.

    -Food Limit: well... the Problem is, with to much towers the game will cause laggs, but maybe i will give 10 more food with second race.

    I think the next version will also have some upgrades for towers and maybe a 9th race.

    Version 1.3 has been released! I fixed the Sell-Ability, the Air units, added 2 new Towers and I made some Ice and Orc towers better. In round 18 you get now 10 additional Food.

    I would be pleased if anyone posts his opinion or bugs which you have found.

    Yeah, i think the first idea to make a map based on chernobyl was from stalker: shadow of chernobyl, but I think I didn't took anything from stalker.

    Here is my review:

    Statistics:
    Time: 48 Minutes 26 Seconds
    Race: Power
    Second Race: Fire
    Level: 30
    Game beaten: Yes

    Negative (The most Helpful):

    -The ONLY problem I had with this game was that Power seemed too imbalanced compared to the other races. In the end, I was at some crazy number of kills while others were very far behind. That’s the reason I chose Power because fast attacking races tend to be where map-creators trip up.

    Moderate (Less major points):

    -There were grammar/spelling errors in your chat.

    -The food did get annoying, as it did not let me complete my maze.

    -It ended somewhat anti-climactic. I had 5000 gold from the last round. I was expecting some sort of ultimate boss.

    Positive:

    -Besides Power, the races were balanced.

    -The races were unique, and each had their own advantages and weaknesses.

    -The creeps were unique. For example, there were bosses, air, ground, and special abilities.

    -There were NO bugs that I noticed.

    -Players had the ability to get multiple races.

    -The spawn points were based on players, allowing for any number of players.

    -Even the workers could play a part in defending.

    Final Rating: 4/5 APPROVED
    “This map contains minor errors, and should be fun for most players”

    K thx for feedback:
    -Towerlimit: Yes i know you can't make an extreme long maze, but without the foodlimit the game will cause laggs.
    -Power is now weaker
    -Round 30: It's now a boss round

    @Greeksaga: No it isn't a stalker map. But thank you for the tip.

    I updated the map now the new version has many many changes (Changelog at the first post)

    I would be pleased if anyone posts his opinion or bugs which were found.

    This is my review of Invasion of Chernobyl v1.5.

    Pros:
    -Large number of towers and races.
    -Modifications to the game interface were well done.
    -The effect displayed when a life was lost was a nice change. It's much more immersive than seeing "you have lost a life, you now have x lives...".
    -Selectable difficulties are the host to scale the game according to the number of players, and the skill level of those players.
    -Quite a number of features were included; upgradeable towers, and depositing income system really helped polish the map.

    Cons:
    -You credited Ragingspeedhorn as the author of the GetHost() function. Tennis is the real author. RSH merely created a tutorial on how to use this function.
    -The fade out on cinematic made the dialog selection quite frustrating to say the least.
    -The terrain could use a few more doodads, and a bit more tile variation. Still, it's decent relative to most TDs.

    Rating: 3.0 and recommended for approval.

    Invasion of Chernobyl v1.5 is a tower defense map, where your goal is to build towers and defend against masses of attacking creatures.

    I really can't say much about this map. The terrain is done fairly for a tower defense. It fits the entire theme of the map. Yet a couple of more dodoads wouldn't hurt.

    The races are interesting, however they do not contain a lot of towers. You should add more towers to each race. The towers are missing hotkeys. You should add hotkeys for building, since that's one of the essential things in a TD map. And you should write the tooltips better, perhaps add a couple of color tags.

    The map is original, a nice theme you used. However after playing it for some time I can't really say it differs much from any other tower defense map.

    The packaging is nice, aswell as the crediting. However hvo mentioned the thing about ragingspeehorn that you should fix.

    Overall a decent TD, nothing revolutionary or special, yet you will have some fun playing this. Approved with a 3/5 (Useful) rating.

    Hi Guys
    After a few months I reworked my map, adding new unique towers, barricades, and a lot of other useful stuff.

    I would be pleased if anyone posts his opinion or bugs which you have found.
