    well, i could just compress into an ZIP format to make it have an smaller size.

    An besides, this is much better than your average custom race maps.

    reason is mostly because you need to actualy use the TIME in this map(to avoid sandstorms), where in the past the daylight and nightime just made a darker screen .

    No!

    You seem a bit zealous about your own map, and you're forgetting all other night factors apparantly (vision, mana regain, stealth, sleep), so day/night does have a very tactical purpose in the standard melee maps as well.
    The sandstorms seem like just another random factor.

    The triggers are bad (memory leaks, inefficient), the terrain consists out of spammed doodads (which is bad), most units haven't been changed much, no item drops, the sandstorms are more annoying than tactical, unnecesary imports, typo's, "can submerge" - there is no water.
    Rejected.
