SH v1.4 Top vs Bottom

Submitted by [K40$]-Spectre
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
[​IMG]

Update 4 released

Map: Top vs Bottom
Background story: an abandoned Protoss fortress, featuring lots of terrain advantage points.
Why the Protoss left is a mystery, since their stationary portals are still active.


Map specific: resources at the player start locations are removed if that player is not playing. So the map can be played with a few players too without having an overabundance of resources on the map.

=========================================================

Starcraft Hybrids general information

This is a new take on the traditional Starcraft races. The three races have been replaced by three hybrid races. Includes AI variations to make playing against computer more interesting. Includes sounds/voices from Starcraft 1, except for the music but you can easily find the playlists of Starcraft 1 music on youtube (for the full experience ;D).

This has nothing to do with the Hybrids in Starcraft 2. The Hybrids have an other (/new) story which will later be explained through a custom campaign.

Important! Only choose between Human (/Bionic), Orc (/Infested) or Undead (/Void Predators) for both you and AI players. AI does not function as it should when it has its race as Night Elf (Warcraft 3 bug).

There are three playable races:
The Bionics - a combination of Terran and Protoss forces
The Infested - a merge between zergs and infested Terrans
The Void Predators - a merg between Zerg and Protoss


Features:
- Play with one of the three Hybrids races. Each race featuring an arsenal of new and unique units and structures.
- The focus is more on strategy than micro managment, like in Starcraft 1. Many abilities can be auto-cast or are passives, allowing you to focus on other important things. Also terrain bonuses. However there are still some units for you who like lots of micro management.
- The all new units and buildings enable entirely new defensive and offensive strategies.
- Many custom resources and Starcraft 1 sounds (even voices) have been used to give it that starcraft feeling, while staying under 8mb! So you can still play the map on battlenet and lan.


Not protected:
This map is not protected, you can modify, take things from it and hopefully learn from it. Do as you like.

    , you bet it is long :p. Is 'sc Chapter 2.10' from the Starcraft 1 campaign? (a bit too long ago I played those maps)
    Gameplay screenshots of this map will come later, was a bit lazy so I just copied the ones from The Hunters :p. And I am looking forward to the review ;).

    , that is a good idea

    Its the last zergmission before Broodwar.

    It was a long way from bottom to top to the target building.

    , never completed the original Starcraft camaigns :cred: (except for the protoss or terran one where you control both terran & protoss). But now that I watch it on youtube it is indeed somewhat similar.

    ps: I have the feeling that Starcraft maps generally speaking are bigger than Warcraft 3 maps (even though they both have 256 x 256 pixels max normally). Probably cause Starcraft 1 units are much smaller.

    Hotfix, fixed the victory conditions and defeat messages. Outdated or whatever it was, it should work now.

    , hi. These are basically hybrid races in the sense of, what if:

    Terran and Protoss would share technology (Bionics)
    Zerg infested a group of Terran completely (Infested)
    For whatever reason Zerg and Templars merge together (Void Predators)

    I think I will move that line about Starcraft 2 hybrids to a better position ;).

    Hope you like this one as well :).

    * Hotfix Top vs Bottom (8 september): added Xel'naga Tower to Top vs Bottom, 'resources at the player start locations are removed for players that are not playing' is now properly working.

    @FLACC, hope you like this one too. And don't forget to check my Island Deluxe one which has more Air focussed AI.

    If anyone has a map terrain request just say the word.

    , by doing nothing you mean that they also don't build workers etc.? What races did you select for the enemies?

    , tyty, some gold mine points indeed have good defensive/choke points (so they are important grab as soon as possible). But I can make that choke point of the gold mine in middle a bit wider ;).

    its got some spelling errors like warp into instead of warp in. another issue is that enemy players some times spawn next to each others so the computer attacked me right away. mind control in starcraft can control workers so that is another issue. there is only 1 custom interface. vespene refineries are missing and those are easy to create gameplay wise. i found out that this map contains a hack of some kind that installs certain starcraft sounds into the memory used by the game so, they even appear in other maps. the only way to get rid of them is to close the game and then open it again.

    @FLACC, ok thanks. I have not experienced problems myself like that so far but I will check it out.

    , cannot do anything about that, that is how warcraft 3 works. Try to play with 2 teams that works as far as I noticed.

    , why is this an issue? this is not starcraft, it has totally different races, units and abilities...

    , 8mb filesize limit for multiplayer games.

    , 8 mb filesize limit and I only found ugly models for that. Plus I don't think it matters, why should it be exact like Starcraft?

    , hack? those are imported .mp3 sounds (imported in the sound editor). Iirc it is normal that they stay in the game's memory, that is how warcraft 3 works.
