Star wars: A new hope

Submitted by Melshisedek1
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is a Star Wars CTF map, but it can be played just as a VS team map. It somehow disappeared from the site when it was transferred from server a few years ago. For Star Wars lovers you should enjoy. there is a little learner curvature to enjoy all of the features, but it is worthwhile. Olofmoleman was nice enough to give me a hand with terraining as it used to be my weakness. Enjoy!

Keywords:
Star wars, capture the flag, team vs team.

7) I got ideas from the game Star Wars Battlefront. For instance my map design is alot like the Tatooine Dune Sea map.
8) Before commencing this map I played all W3 Star Wars custom maps I could find to see what was done. I must mention that I got the vehicle transport idea from N-a-z-g-u-l map titled Star Wars-Clones VS. Droids. I got some models made by Olofmoleman from Chaos13lade map titled The Jedi vs. The Sith. I took some sound from Zam The Destroyer map titled StarWarCraft.

    Thanks for the comment. I put a lot of work in this map back when I did It. Hopefully there is a fun factor. Even tough there is a 4 mo limit for multiplayer maps (so can't upload that many models), I think I was able to capture the Star Wars feeling.

    The map was moderated on 2014, and I assume by then you haven't asked for another review from another staff after updates.

    I personally recommend asking for another moderation in Staff Contact than doing this. Oh, I still haven't see any screenshots here.

    Reason is I got a a very harsh and improper review on my recent map posted. So I see a tendency. Get it. I just replied to that improper review and yes I will contact staff for both reviews.

    About screenshots. Best hing is to play the game, but if it is needed in rules, I will post some in shortly.

    Hopes that clears most of things up. This map missing screenshots and description, which is the moderator's reason when the map was moderated at that time.
    As a random user who stumble on the map, I will think twice about the map before downloading, afraid it might not meet the quality I expected. This is why description becomes an important part of a map.

    This is exactly why I dispise the fact of what happened to my maps. DOwnload my Star Wars map. The best in its category. You may like or not, that is another question, but it is a quality game. Trust me it has many hours of work in it, it is not a newbie I made it one day kinda map.

    I doubt that but anyway, it's much better in terms of gameplay than your other I've commented on recently.

    Terrain is quite lacking though.
    Enemy units attack before you have to choose the gameplay stuff (flags etc.).
    Sith Lightsaber Skills' buff icon is that of Sidious' item, not the spell's.
    Scout Trooper and Sand Trooper have the same icon. Actually a lot of units have this issue.
    Would be nice to make items more custom than renaming some and keeping their icons (and attributes) too.
    Spells are kind of Warcraft III ones but given the gameplay mechanics it's OK.

    Not sure about hero and faction balance but it can be a really fun map.
    Good work! I hope you'll bring your LoK map to this level if not higher too.
    Maybe, you could find more models and icons to make this one look even better.

    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.

    Thanks. Happy about that. Sadly I mainly used the same triggers, but the map terrain seems to interfere the AI capacities in multiplayer in my other Nosgoth map. I am coming with an v8 update of Nosgoth map late tonigth. You should retry the single player. I will incluse dome camera improvement and resets, mostly in cutscenes. And ake it so that quest triggers of the first few Sarafan quest work with any hero holding quest items so it is easier to progress. You should try that v8 version it is really much like Blood Omen in single player. Maybe once I am done with the Blood Omen story I will try and improve the multiplayer.
