    Hey i played you map and its AWSOME. Definitely thinking out of the box compared to most maps out there. A few bugs but I assume already know about them. One thing though the longer you play the map the jumpier the camera gets. I don't know what is causing that. Good luck and I have to try the new version now :p

    Thanks for the feed back. And ya i most likely know about them.

    Its more likely your camera is getting more crazy the more you play because your coasters are likely going upside down more or more turning. I have had some suggestions of how to fix this in the hosted forums section. Expect the camera too be better next version.

    bounty hunter2's Review on Roller Coaster Alpha 2.5

    Roller Coaster Alpha 2.5 is a very interesting mini game, where up to four players each design their own roller coaster, and then ride on them. The tile suggest that the map is Alpha, however the map is fully playable, and thus it should be considered as Beta.

    The terrain is quite bad, blizzard cliffs, to much symmetry, no dodoads, no terrain height. Yes, it serves your map, but it is very bad.

    The sole idea of the map is great and original. Building a roller coaster is always fun, and implemented in warcraft it is just great.

    The building of the coaster can get quite confusing at times. However after some time it gets simple. There are some typos in the build buttons, you should color the hotkey buttons aswell.

    To continue, I must say I really liked the FPS camera view when riding the coaster. It gives a special feel to it.

    The biggest lack to this map, is that it misses more diversity. It is basically building a coaster, that gets boring soon.

    The map has been in development for quite some time, the only thing I can do now is Approve it with a 3/5 (Useful) rating. The map has quite a lot of potential. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the review. All I can really say to respond is that, its work in progress. As for the beta or alpha. I was under the impression was beta was when you are testing if your planed game is working and adding and removing things as needed, more of a testings phase. I don't feel i am there yet.

    As for the terrain, I will try to get someone to clean it up at some point. I really don't think its that bad, but its not half as good as it could be.

    I Agree, But this should change in time.

    I Agree, I have tips that help a ? mark, and i have worked the controls the best i know how. And color coded Angles. As well as when you make mistakes it tells you what your doing wrong. But Its way to high of a learning curve still, I hope to improve on this, but it will be awhile before i can make my next big step on improving this part.

    Thanks, I am working on improving this. And the third person view.

    I Agree, Very Good Idea Thanks



    Overall I Agree with your review. Thanks

    After I played it a day.
    Your map is lacking of something... Sound*
    Usually ride a roller coaster sure have many screaming sound, also the roller coaster walking is totally no sound at all...

    That's the thing I suggest you to add.

    Come one, what happened with the moderator rating?

    3/5, bah!
    Sorry bounty_hunter, but IMO you always test maps less then 5 minutes, and write subjective review about it.

    I always appreciate new system in WC3, thus I give you 5/5! ^^

    it sounds an awesome idea I just watched the video and I liked it the only bad parts like bounty hunter2 said are the terrain its very symmetric and this map needs more diversity I like the cameras and the idea but it needs some improvements anyway for a mini-game its great so congratz! I give it a 3.5/5 or 4/5.
