Bi-Weekly Testing Thread

Today we've uploaded the first of Mapsters new "Bi-Weekly Testing Thread"s, with the map in question being Trieva's Blitz Fire. What does this mean? Simple: for the next two weeks, we're calling on all Mapsters to play and test this particular map on the arcade, and leave their detailed feedback in the thread. After two weeks, we'll pick a different project and put that up for testing and feedback.

So look up the map, hit the link above, and leave your comments in the thread!

All Doodads Project

All Doodads Project by Scbroodsc2

Long-time Mapster user Sc2broodsc2 (or, more easily known as 'Fenix') has recently updated his 'all doodads project' to include all the cool new stuff we got in LotV. What does this mean, you ask? Simple: Fenix has gone through every single doodad currently available in the editor and screenshotted them. As such, we now have a comprehensive list of doodads that can be searched by picture. Say you're trying to create a Protoss base for your map and you've got an empty spot you need to fill up: you can scroll through the All Doodads project until you find one you like and immediately find the doodads' name, allowing the project to serve as a simple 'legend' of sorts when creating a terrain for your map.

Also included in the project as tilesets and cliffs, for those looking for more conceptual ideas. Happy terraining!

Apple, Apple, Orange

Apple, Apple, Orange by MiketheSspike

A 4 player mini game in which you collect fruit and turn them into the correct bin. There are 4 fruits that spawn, each of them giving you different points on turn in: Grape 45 points, Apple 60 points, Banana 75 points, Watermelon 90 points. If you turn in the same fruit several times in a row you will receive a bonus that stacks to 5 (1.5X bonus). You may alternatively turn in a specific fruit to an infestor for a game-long buff. On the top, an energy regeneration buff. To the right, a size bonus. On the Bottom, a speed bonus. To the left, you gain a clone of yourself which will also collect fruit. The game is over when 1 of 3 things happen: 1, a player reaches 2500 points. 2, 5 minutes of game time elapse. 3, a bin fills to capacity. The game can then be replayed by the click of a button of the Mini Score Screen.

Auto Squads

Auto Squads by Trieva

Auto Squads is a game about making fun and meaningful decisions while being easy to play. Two opposing sides select their squad compositions in order to destroy their enemies base. Plenty of things are automated, such as unit control, so players are left with doing higher level input. This game is designed to be very comfortable yet interesting to play by requiring minimal effort from players and allowing them to play how they want and when they want.
