Mini-Me: Great map without a doubt. This doesnt feel like warcraft, you have pushed the borders, and I mean that in a good way. Everybody should check this map out. Aproved.

    OMG Godly map ... Its the best of the hundred map I have played. btw, is it possible to add a super hero mod like in counter strike ? ^^ just asking . I think it would be cool to fly around like spider man xD.

    Edit : 2 things which annoy me alots . Sometime the minimap keep pinging nonstop, after I have to restart warcraft 3 then its gone. Normal when I closed the multiboard it wont open again, but sometime it open on its own and i have to close it again. Like when someone takes a flag, or when you has taken the leads. Normal this doesnt happend but sometimes it does. Can you fix it so if player choose to close the multi board it stay permanent close ? and not keep opening on its own sometimes.

    TheHunterKiller tnx thats really kind a bug (issue) cause it seems what some one NOT from 2 teams have the flag O_O

    to enable inventory type "-mod 1"

    DotAxLegend yes if you played a map before and used pings so after it will be also played in TcX (it can't overwrite the sound file cause it's in memory) and yes the restart is the only solution or don't play maps before :p or you can disable radar =)
    (-radar 0)

    well i in 1.04 where will be no stat system at all imo it's outplaced in such fast pased game (aka no character screen and items etc)
    but i will remade some things and add relative "alot" new i hope. it will be kind a remake =)

    and about the bug i am glad what is't nothing REALLY serious.

    and i hant to find proper way to hide HP... and not add alot and hope it will not display ;P

    Glad to hear your reply.

    I think the stats and items system are amazing though, it makes the game much more interesting in FFA or team games, people kill others not just to get the high scores because after 10 ~ 15 minuut they usually get bored then leave. But I noticed when I hosted with exp mod, a few or sometimes more people stay. With this mod people arent killing just for score but to improve their char. Although I noticed a small amounts of players dont like it, the marjorty doesnt have a probleems thought and alots players loves it. Some games people often asks me if I will use exp mod in game lobby. persoonally I too think this mod is to good to be throw away. Its up to you though ^^, since you have created such amazing map I believe however you change it, it remains amazing.

    Anyway I have recently hosted alots TcX map on bnet and players often ask me if they can change the arrow keys to ADSW to movement. I think this might be much better too since players who had played Quake 3 or Counter strike before usually used those keys instead arrows. And Q en E could be use to swap previous and next weapons. Is it possible to add this in the upcoming version ? Like when someone type -keys 3 they get this combination of keys.

    Some funny things : When I host with names like Quake 3 FPS , not many join. When I host with name Counter Strike FPS - Join Fast .... Game full in 5~10 min xD lol . I guess Quake 3 isnt as populair as CS :p

    for this purporse i made (almost ;p) TcXAOS ... cause it gives goals in game. i want to keep arena more hardcore O_O but we will see at all...

    can change the arrow keys to ADSW to movement. use this tool. (if it doesnt work i can upload the "source" so you can run it self (it's an Autohotkey script))

    maybe but CS suck.

    Sorry for my Bad Eng I'm 15 and French (Frog eater yeah :xxd:)

    Hi, Toadcop your map seriously rocks !! I fucking love it !
    First time i played it, i was like stunned by graphics,models and especially by the jump ability, gravity commands. I had a lot of fun bombarding them with the rocket weapon when i was in the sky/heaven :infl_thumbs_up:.
    The AI are fucking smart and weapons AWESOME !!

    But this you may already know so i'd like to propose some features popped up from my mind...

    - Put a big hill somewhere make it a little hard to climb - with jumpers what ever - and at the end of this hill you add the weapon of pleasure... The sniper !! ( I dunno if it's on Quake but i do know it's on UT :gg:)
    The crosshair of the sniper would erase the whole menu, bars, stuffs and it'll make the whole screen black with the Sniper's crosshair, to aim it wouldn't be like "Sniper arena" with arrow keys but with the mouse !
    I know it's not gonna be easy to create but i'm sure you can do it = P

    Other ideas ( not obligatory taken from quake or UT) :
    - Make a bonus somewhere in the map that make you can do a double jump (like TF2 or SSBM)
    - Make some cars and vehicule in air or in ground but still with arrows keys mouvement (like Battlefields = P)
    - Bonus somewhere that make you go under the ground or make you invisible.
    - Something i wonder for a long time i'm not sure if there is a way to do it: it would be like the stickie of the TF2 demoman, I mean it's like grenades that stick everywhere and explose when you decide (e.g: push right click) but it would be visible and even destroyable by enemies from a distance.
    - A jet Pack (I know i'm insane :ugly: but it's a dream :eek:)
    - The possibility to slide somewhere (broadly accomplishable :thumbs_up:)


    Question: How do you change the mod in CTF ?
    :eekani:
    I tried all -mod they were all doing the same deathmatch mode... ( would be also good to limit the mod because you can write whatever number e.g: -mod 6969 would still restart the game)
    And why Tcx ?

    PS: I prefer Tcx simple than AoS :cute:
    PS2: FEEL FREE TO CORRECT ME AND TELL ME MY ORTOGRAPHY ERRORS
    (I did that without any translator just want to say = P)

    PS3: One hour of writing instead of playing = P

    Redcrit tnx. but i think what the most your suggestions doesnt fits well into the gameplay =O
    and
    CTF = Esc -> Game mode -> CTF
    or -mode 3 ;)

    -mod 1 = XP mod with Expirience, items etc.

    tnx for the long post ^_^ i am glad what you like it.

    Man, great game 5/5


    but you need to fix somethings:

    1- put an option to turn on that music of the ping minimap, it gives me headache all the time that noise

    2- put a commands to switch the commands for W A S D, space jump and keep the shot on the left button of the mouse



    Suggestions: Add more cameras.


    Just this, thanks for creating this map
