[Tutorial] Mad Mazers v1.61

Mad Mazers

Update News v1.61

This map is slowly getting bigger and bigger!
This map now has a complete new spawn trigger!

To give you a little visual stuff for what I've changed, take this 2 screenshots.




This map is made for everyone who is interested in map making, but didn't found the right way to start.
Tower defenses are a great basic to learn map making, because most important parts of a tower defense are very easy to create!

If you have any questions feel free to ask me!

Please do not upload a changed version of this map!

I am very sorry that the last update took so long, but I wasn't enjoying warcraft for a long time. But I am back now.
So if you want to see more stuff, just write me a message here on hive.

Comments and bug reports are highly welcome!

This map contains:

spawn triggers
move triggers
restart triggers
music triggers
Choosable difficulty
level depending requirements for towers
sell ability for towers
player left notification
painted black background of tooltips
hint system
player commands (like: -roll, :message (ingame message contains 'message'), -lifes and much more!)
player control panel (dialog menu)
tower abilitys (selfmade with JASS)

    hi SeriousEnemy, do you know how to add some Sound effects ? doesn't work to my TD map..

    Sorry for the late respons, been very busy.

    You can check out the triggers when opening my map.
    If you're still having problems understanding or importing parts of it, just let me know it.
    I will try to take a look here at least once every weekend.
