    Hey,
    I want to create any map, but i can't think of any that would be popular.
    Could you please suggest any map types, names, description of a map? Mabye you and me could work on it together or something?

    For example:
    -------------------------------------
    StarShip Command

    You start out with a sloop, build up and command a big battle cruiser, explore the universe, trade and make friends with other space ships. Make a fleet with your allies and attack space pirates or betray players.
    -------------------------------------
    StarGate Universe

    StarGate RPG, there are many worlds and planets to explore. Get there by SpaceShip or by the StarGate. You start out off as a civilian and you will lead your self to might! (Or an RTS Style)
    -------------------------------------

    Any ideas? I just don't know what to create D:.

    I'd like something original and would become famous, and probably a map making team to go with it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your idea is definately too open.

    To just state a request for a map idea, you have to first narrow down what type of map you want to make.

    Do you want to make a Builder-style map?
    RPG?
    LOAP?
    Arena?
    Maze?
    TD?
    AoS?
    something else?

    Once you chosen at least that, you can then request theme suggestions. Otherwise you'll get random suggestions like mine:

    Make a builder map with a terminator-style theme to it. Machines vs. <something non-machine>

    I don't mind making anything, though i'm not to keen with RPG, never made an TD either or a LOAP. But i guess there easy to do.

    Atm all my ideas for an awesome map has drifted away, because i'm looking to create map that is different from the original (Very different) or an original map its self; but i guess i have to think on my own.

    Would it be okay if i just post what map ideas i come up with?

    Hmm, it sounds good, original and it looks fun.

    I also thought up an idea playing a wc3 game yesterday, here it goes:

    --- Jurassic Park Wars ------------------------------------------------------
    The objective of the game is to be the last one alive.
    The world has been taken over by dinosaurs from Jurassic Park, and your castle or (modern castle) will be your only survival key of survivng the Jurassic Park Invasion.

    You can then try and send a Sabotager to destroy an enemys power generator which will temporerly disable the castle's power.


    That's all i came up with D:

    You mean, this map is somewhat like an RTS?

    Brief understanding:
    Players attack others while surviving from dinosaur attacks.
    Dinosaurs attack each base periodically.
    Base energy generators supply power to buildings(unit-producing buildings, towers, etc)
    Objective: Be the last one alive.

    Comments:
    Alliance possible?
    Generators repairable?
    Terrain type should be some "forest""island"-y type. Like Sunken ruins, or Lordaeron.
    Being the last one alive in a dinosaur inhabited islands is just stupid. How about:
    -Be the first to obtain a high-valued artifact
    -Construct a shuttle/ship/chopper/tanker/submarine to escape. Last X player(s) loses.
    The background is weird. Nukes could take care of them all.
    How about: "You're stranded in an inhabited island, and you discover that the island is rigged of dinosaurs. Find a way to escape.", "You are here in this island on a certain mission to find an artifact" or "You are in a war with other factions in this island for a long time. However, a certain biochemical reaction from a faction's experiment seem to revive and recreate dinosaurs left dead in this island." or maybe "You and your enemies are stranded on the island used to be the grand Jurassic park. Dinosaurs could be roaming free.", your choice. Stick to your current idea if you would.

    Suggestions:
    Weathers, like thunderstorms have X% chance to disable power generators.
    Dinosaur Migrations, when a player kills to much dinosaurs in an area, they move to another area.
    Secret High-Value Artifacts, like raptor eggs.
    Alliance system, shared victory. Max X player can win together.
