- Over 100 countries avaliable to be captured/destroyed.
- Epic battles.
- Reallistic Air Combat.
- Nuke your enemies!
- or build Anti-Missile shields towards your nation to prevent it.

Thanks for playing.

Thanks the Hive Workshop staff for hosting the forum.

OPEN SOURCE
I'm not a selfish person. Since Blizzard extended the max filesize limit to 8mb, map is no longer protected. You can modify this map as you wish, or use the systems included on this map on a map of yours, but dont forget to give me credits for all systems, and read the comment file explaining the rules of how to edit/republish this map. As long you follow these rules, you don't need to ask me authorization.


Screenshoots

Fuck imageshack! They have deleted my pics! I will upload new ones soon.



Important Note about AI

If you want to play with AI, dont use more than 2 computer players or game will lag like hell (Blame wc3 engine!). That happens because this map has epic battles with hundreds of units on each side, and when an AI orders too many units to advance/move/retreat, game lags, and theres no way to fix it. But I can assure you: If you play on solo against 2 computer players, the game is still funny and can last very long.

    Foammy told me that helicopter attacks were buggy. The rockets where not begin launched from where they were suposed to be.
    And, by this way, helis can use their chainguns too.

    Pretty fun map, the concept is very well implemented. Although the aircraft fighter/bomber movement patterns really annoyed the heck out of me. Especially because I need to get them to refuel and they seem to be just moving around patrolling. While your aircraft movement system works great when attacking, it could be improved on movement orders.

    Also, I have to agree with other people that the map size is too large. This makes hosting this map a problem in battle.net.

    Besides those, its a really fun game to play with friends (as new people dont wait for 3mb to load up).

    the new updates nice..specially the choppers

    but sths wrong with australia; the oil fields are placed too far away from the capital building so the supply trucks just try "returning" to indonesia instead.
    fix this perhaps?

    ..and as skullclaimer (and others) said b4, the map size puts a damper on hosting this fine piece of work. perhaps release a protected + optimized version AND a unprotected version like the guys @ Desert Storm III did?

    Thanks for the comments, guys.
    Yeah, the size is really a big problem, and sgtnoobkilla idea is pretty cool, but I doubt that the map mods would allow me to keep 2 versions of the map on the hive (a protected and an unprotected one)

    Skullclaimer; I will try to give better manuverability to planes on next version.

    Updated. Many new improvements and bug fixes. The map is optimized to save space. If somebody wants an unprotected version, ask me via PM

    What I don't understand in those maps is: how do you actually win?
    All the opposite team left, we got all buildings, what now? Live happy forever?

    ProfessorZmurge, You must capture all enemy countries.
    Type @report to know how much countries your enemies have under control.

    Hehehe.. I didnt knew about that
    I tried to add satellites on 1.16, but it was very buggy (if you search the map imported data, you will find a satellite icon :D). Maybe I ill add them on 1.26

    Hmm.. yeah, it should :p
    Thanks for the sugestion.



    Guys, I pretend to make a massive update on 1.26, so, I am open to sugestions.

    Maybe you should add propaganda and country leader's reputation? You know, make so enemy cityzens would be unhappy, using your propaganda, so they would start revolution?

    Return and improve the circle flight?
    Make it so it only happens when the unit is idle.
    Add different plane loadouts?
    Heavy bombers can have Napalm, High explosive, or cluster, Cruise missile, or REAR gun.
    Multirole planes can have gas, cluster, Napalm, HE, AGM, AAM, or gun.
    Fighters can have AAM, or gun
    Stealth bombers can only have bombs.

    Add even more units?
    B1-B, A new bomber designed to take the place of the B52, can be armed with AAMs
    Tu-160, a New heavy bomber that can go at supersonic speeds.
    FROG-7: A single rocket, but heavy damage. Can be armed with a small nuclear warhead.
    Laith-90: Iraqi FROG-7 with an increased range with a submunition warhead.
    9K22(ZSU-30-2)(SA-19): Upgraded AA system of the Shika. Uses 30mm projectiles instead of 23mm projectiles, and it can also use 9M311 Strela AA missiles

    Superweapons, If not implemented.
    Russia: Tzar bomb remake, (50MT nuclear bomb.) NOT ACCURATE, Has to be delivered by plane
    US: Titan missile system, (35MT nukes, 3 launches) Accurate.
    China: Guarag Hong missiles, 1 long range balistic missile, 10 nuke MIRV, 5MT each.
    Arabia: Dirty bomb, small explosion, but HEAVY HEAVY radiation.
    Africa: Cholera, Spreads among closely packed soldiers, slowly kills unless treated by a hostpital
    Cuba + Venezeula: Leftover nuclear missiles from the cuban missile crisis, (Gives 3-5 free nukes, can only be used 30min in game)
    South america: The map maker lives in brazil, he'll have to make this up.
    Austraila: Shares same superweapon as europe?
    Europe: Trident D-5 Nuclear missile.

    And for ground ammo switching:
    Tanks: KE (Kenetic Explosive) projectile, best agaist tanks. HE, Best against light vehicles and infantry.
    MLRS system: Cruise missiles (Single shot, wide damage area), Multi-rocket (Same as vanilla launches.

    Im liking this idea of your's, also you made real modern vehicules and aircraft, why not navy? Like a Victoria-class Submarines, , also add crusiers since I don't think there is a AA ship you've made. Besides cruisers (well atleast the Halifax-class curisers) are anti-air, anti-sub and anti-surface weaponary on it.

    Try redoing satellites if it dosen't bug or maybe a moon base with a giant laser on it that targets anywere on the map lol.

    That were causing the big memory leaks that you and foammy reported. Noticed that after I removed the circle flight, the leak stoped?

    Hmm.. good thing to think about.

    I'll make the possible to implement it.

    I think the MLRS idea nice, but not the tank one. If I do it, the players will have no more reason to use anti-tank units, like towed howitzers and IFVs.

    To add it, I would need a list of the warships used by the principal nations of the game (USA, MExico, Canada, Colombia, Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Venezuela, Cuba, UK, Germany, Russia, Italy, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, India, China, Japan, Australia, and France) Can you help me finding this list? (If yes, I will put your name in the credits, of course.)

    Sure I can help you out with the navy but not sure about European ships.

    North American (Canadian)

    -Iroquois destroyers, has area air defenses and anti sub weaponary.

    -Halifax frigates, they uses guided missiles and are helicopter carrying(only one) has surface to air, anti-air and anti-sub.

    -Victoria class Submarines, no need to say much.

    -Aurora maritime surveillance plane (basicly sees all) armed with air-to-surface missiles, and anti-sub torpedos

    -Cyclone helicopters (this is really new to the navy, just released this year and right now only posses 28 of them.) This is a transport helicopter, the only armed thing on it is a Self-Defense gun. It intends to replace the Sea King helicopter.

    North America (United States)

    -Ohio class, ballistic missile submarine (it carries Trident missiles)

    -Virginia class, attack submarine

    -USS Gerald R. Ford (or CVN-78), a nuclear powered aircraft carrier, it is classed as a supercarrier (basicly the best aircraft carrier in the world.) It has a Evolved Sea Sparrow Missile (it can destroy missiles and is a AA missile), and Rolling Airframe missile (another AA missile).

    - Harpers Ferry class, dock landing ship, it's a transport ship that has a .50 caliber gun, 25 mm Mk 38 cannons it's basicly a large chaingun, and the Phalanx CIWS (Close-In Weapon System) basicly is a anti-ship weapon.

    -The Iowa class Battleship, it's the only battleship that can be reactivated in the US navy, this mega super duper powerhouse ship has 50. cal machine guns, 70. cal anti air guns, Tomahawk cruise missiles, Harpoon anti-ship missiles, and a .76 cal Phalanx CIWS.

    North American (Mexico)

    - ARM Netzahualcóyotl (best if you call it D-102) is a destroyer, the only weapons... Machbox ASROC (Anti-Submarine ROCkets) and deck guns

    - ARM Mina (F-214) class frigate, Sea Sparrow Missiles, .54 cal gun, some Harpoon missiles.

    - ARM Tormenta (A-302) class missile boat, carries: Gabriel anti-ship missiles, Oerlikon 20 mm cannon, and 2 M2 Browning machine guns.

    That's all for North America now I gave you alot of choices so you will have to pick them

    Russian Navy

    -Graney class nuclear powered submarine, has P-800 anti ship missiles.

    -Steregushchy class corvette (long name lol) has a sonar so it can detect subs, 100mm A-190 anti-ship cannon

    -Admiral Sergei Gorshkov frigates, ONIK anti-ship missiles, 100mm A-192 cannon, SS-N-29 anti-sub rockets.

    -Now Russia has no aircraft carriers today, but they plan on building some next year, but they have the decomissioned Kiev-class Aircraft carrier.

    Kiev-class has surface-to-air missiles, 10 torpedo tubes, 2 dual-purpose guns. Can carry 18 helicopters and 12 Yak-38's (now decomissioned).

    Europe, now you need to know that there is no Europe Union navy, so each navy is from there country.

    France

    -Charles de Gaulle (or R-91) aircraft carrier, nuclear powered aircraft carrier and basicly the only one outside the U.S. , Now this one is special cause they have something called the Sylver launcher which is specially built for the Charles de Gaulle, it basicly is a all in one missile launcher (AA, Anti-ship, anti-sub), and 2x 20 mm F2 autocannon guns.

    Germany

    -Brandenburg class frigate, these are specially made for anti-submarine combat, but it still uses MM38 Exocet anti-ship missiles, and some Sea Sparrow missiles.

    Spain

    -Agosta 90B class submarine, armed with nothing more but torpedos.

    United Kingdom

    -HMS Daring (D32) destroyer, has sonar, 2 Phlanax CIWS, Aster 15 and 30 missiles.

    Now you have noticed that none of them has battleships because all the countries decomissioned them (It's so complex and expensive, plus they have a really short duration). So you will probably will have to invent something new for the battleships, other than the American ones. I even put up a picture of the only American battleship that can be reactivated just to give you a example of firepower.

    Anywho continuing the list

    Australia
    Honestly they have hardly any ships

    -Anzac class frigate, anti-submarine and anti-aircraft

    -Collins class submarine, nuff said

    -Kanimbla class AMPHIBIOUS transport, Troop & helicopter transport

    Japan (or the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force)

    -Atago class destroyers, they use guided missiles

    -Takanami class destroyers, uses Evolved Sea Sparrow missiles, 127 mm Otobreda and carries a SH-60J anti-sub Helicopter.

    -Shirane class destroyers, this one is special cause it's a helicopter destroyer, uses Sea Sparrow SAM missiles, 54 cal. Mark 42 guns.

    -Oyashino class submarine

    -Õsumi class amphibious transport dock, only weapons it has are 2x Phalanx CIWS.

    China (now China has 2 navies, Republic of China Navy and the People Liberation's Army Navy so I am not sure which one you want me to show you).

    Israel

    -INS Hanit class corvette, armed with: Barak surface-to-air missiles, a Phalanx CIWS, Harpoon anti-ship missiles, has sonar, radar

    -Dolphin class submarines

    Cuba (Only two active Soviet ships)

    -Former Soviet Union Pauk II Fast Patrol Craft, armed with a 76mm gun, anti-submarine Torpedo and anti-submarine rocket launcher

    -Former Soviet Union Osa II PFM missile boats, armed with a MANPAD air defence missile, and a SS-N-2A Styx

    Iraq (WTF they have navy? The US and UK are rebuilding the Iraqi navy, so they have 0 ships right now, and the only thing they have right now is this.)

    -fast assault boats, (think of it has a terrorist take over of a ship, has % chance of successful controlling the ship.)

    Can't help with Brazil, since they won't show me.

    India

    - INS Viraat class aircraft carrier, armed with 2 Bofors AA guns, can carry up to 30 aircrafts

    -Shardul class Landing Ship Tank, armed with WM-18 rocket launchers, and CRN-91 AA 30mm guns, can carry 500 troops.

    - Brahmaputra class frigate, sonar,radar, armed with: Barak SAM, 76mm OTO Melara gun, RBU-6000 anti-submarine rocket launcher

    There is no Columbian navy.

    Argentina

    -Almirante Brown class destroyer, carries anti-aircraft guns, a dual purpose gun, and some Exocet anti-ship missiles.

    -Espora class frigate, it's really the same thing as he Almirante Brown destroyer but smaller and carries 1 helicopter.

    Iran

    - SSK Kilo class submarine

    - Allen M. Sumner class destroyer, armed with: 60 cal AA gun, 38 caliber gun

    Besides if you can't find the names just go the Wikipedia.

    Hmmm... then, I think, infantry should be improved too...
