The white minimap is annoying. It doesn't fit the dark spacy theme of the map. You should find a space related image or make it black. If you move the camera, you can't put it back to how you're supposed to play. Some yellow square/dot is left by the...

    Uploading an additional less lag version after some testing. (I have a very nice computer and it never lags for me, so I'm using some helpers to diagnose the best compromise)

    A new alternate version has been added for players who experience lag in the normal version. Based on input from my friends it completely resolved any lag problems they were having, if you have a pretty baseline or slow computer you will benefit from playing this version instead.

    Another update has been added to resolve the: Cannot start game without an opponent dialogue. I always launch my maps from the editor so I forgot about this. Oops :p

    I haven't played this for a long time but the time I played was undoubtedly enjoyable. The game play is simple but very entertaining. It also provides a fresh experience. It shows one of the many things that are achievable with some smart world editor usage.

    1. The white minimap is annoying. It doesn't fit the dark spacy theme of the map. You should find a space related image or make it black.
    2. If you move the camera, you can't put it back to how you're supposed to play.
    3. Some yellow square/dot is left by the fire meteor after it explodes.
    4. Could make a nice planet implosion FX that also destroys the ship(?) or platform(?)/station.
    Maybe you could add more stuff over time.

    Approved.

    ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
    • A credits list in the map thread description 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 too.
    • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
    • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

    1: The minimap is black on mine, maybe your invert terrain feature is toggled?
    2. You're right, I wasn't sure how to fix that.
    3. That's on me, I couldn't decide if I liked the afterburn or not.
    4. I actually made the effect for that but didn't implement it - I have a bad habit of map fatigue at the end of creation process, but I'll consider finishing some more another time.

    Yeah, try forcing it via triggers. It also shows white in the map thread description.
    When a player presses ESC for example or make a periodic event that puts or forces the camera view.

    I don't think the minimap has a force trigger but I'll check again, I'll also check the camera again too - I got it working once, but it was at the cost of something else I didn't like the side-effect of. If I'm lucky and find both I'll update it today.
