    Ive worked on City Of Drugs harder than ive ever worked on any map before. We have finnished main concept about 2 weeks ago, and have been improving and bugfixing ever since.
    However, madome wasnt that active since school has started, but no worries. Even if COD wont win the contest, we will still be ready to come up with a very decent product that is well made and is just fun to play anywhere and any time

    ok, I've finished this map as much as its going to be finished before the deadline. Hope you guys enjoy it and I hope you all vote for it :).

    I posted a Zipped file and the actual file, in case you guys encounter a problem with one or the other...

    The official entry for Bloodvirus and Dreadnought[dA] has been entered. Any of you may host this online on bnet if you want, but if you don't think it's good enough as is then by far don't host it! let it be upgraded by us first!

    Chances are though that we won't be spending any more time on this so this map is free for modifications as long as original credits are given!
    Enjoy!

    Ok, thanks for the entry Bloodvirus!

    Ok everyone, remember that your entry doesn't have to be finished, so if your map is at least half playable, then submit it! A half completed map is better then no map at all

    I agree, all of these map-makers are complaining about not completely finishing their map. It doesn't have to be perfect, just playable. Some are worked on more than others, but it's the hard work that goes into crunch-time.

    I've never discussed with my pair for a long time. I'll try to retrieve the map from Diablo-dk and set things out then tomorrow I'll (maybe) upload this map.

    I've been out because I'm currently making a total conversion mod for Wc3, but I'll keep it top secret.

    I worked all last night to get the map to a point where it was playable and today I was going to test it, but now the map crashes in loading screen and I have no clue what to do about that :cry:

    Thats why the most mapmakers test trigger by trigger and not just making a bunch of things and than testing.
    Crashing in loading screen can mean 2 things:
    You are using "map initialization" trigger with fault action. Like you can Use integer A instead of integer B. Example:
    • map init
      • Events
        • Map initialization
      • Conditions
      • Actions
        • For each (Integer A) from 1 to 10, do (Actions)
          • Loop - Actions
            • Game - Display to (Player group((Player((Integer B))))) the text: Muahahaha


    This trigger will crush the game (you are picking integer A and using integer B)

    Or you use invalid image/model/skin
    Make a copy of you map and remove all trigger and imports one by one, testing them

    Me and my partner had some problems with communication and such, so i first got started working out my part today, and i'm pretty busy with school and such atm, so we probaly won't have our map ready to tommorow.

    My partner did worse than he expected. WE still would have been able to make it exept he cant send it to me right now.

    This is pretty much how I thought it would be: Everybody dropps out at the last second.

    Sadly, I think it would probably be for the best to extend it by a week...

    Well let's see how many maps will be submitted. And if you can't finish, well...just submit what you've got. A deadline is a deadline. Your unfinished map won't compete with any map that has been completed for a couple of weeks already. I doubt any of the complex maps that will be submitted have all the features the creators had planned already.

    Regardless of what billy just said I'm posting this very, very, very, very buggy map (I did fix that bug Doctor Pepper but it wasn't either of those two, for some reason I had "Run this trigger" in the trigger, and so it crashed.) Nevertheless there is many many more bugs. But, I think you can still beat your opponent but I plan to fix these things over the next few weeks, but the competitions over now but ohwell!

    I think the map would be exellent, if it wern't so darn buggy.
