Youtube video of the map PLATFORM DEFENSE VERSUS:
you still keeping track? I played a singleplayer game and got to :58 left, so if i got my mates im sure i could win it easy...And all the motherships, it's crazy.
I'm wondering that myself - I just beat the game as well, have a replay saved, and was wondering if you were still keeping track of who wins this map.
Just wondering how you update the map with who has beaten it. I just beat it today, on BNet, and saved my replay if you want to see it :P Just curious how you get your name "In Lights" so to speak. :)
You are the first to reach that level. I might reduce the number.
Whats up with the 200+ motherships?
Couldn´t do anything since the game just lagged as hell once i got to them...
Its probably your starcraft version. Platform Defense can be played single player.
In any case, this map will be on battle.net next week. :)
Could it be play offline with AIs ? When I open with SC2 editor it's completely black, no "Dependencies" and when I test it the game says "Unable to open map". Still at patch 15 now T_T
Somehow this also happen with many maps I downloaded
I will post this map together with my new map Debates on day 27.
Yeah it's a lot of fun.
I'd love to find an organized team though, you always get the battlenet douschebags that really ruin the game for everyone.
Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the suggestions. Have you played the new PD Versus? Is a way harder.
Check it out the video above.
Hey Rodrigo, been playing PD the past couple days online; got some more suggestions:
(http://goo.gl/oJA0) <- theres a replay of a winning game I played today for reference
1. Missile Turret (Enemy) locations
as you can see in the video, our strategy was to barricade the ramps and use motherships to cloak our cannons. I don't know if this was intended (with scan and all), but the turrets specifically on the lower right side detect onto the platform, making cloaked/burrowed units visible quite a distance onto the platform.
2. Timer for Resource injection
if you could throw up a timer, it'd allow for people to coordinate their spending.
3. King abilities (Hotkeys)
Please change forcefield or fungal growth key so that we can use both without clicking!
Just to end I need to comment that photon cannons are pretty much the best thing to use — the game is easily winnable if everyone uses them to wall off, and of course if you're protoss you have the mothership as well.
Would be nice if you could localize the map so all non enUS players don't have to play with Param/Values. Here your version 2.3 EU localized.
If you don't know how to localize your map, have a look at this.
Do you think this map is too easy? I just won right now.
Localized (EU) version of 1.9 availabe here, nothing else changed.
Everything is working in the new version 1.4b
(Now in this version the income is bigger)
Looked through the update notes and I'm excited to give it a try, unfortunately either MapCraft is busted or I'm doing something wrong; game won't load.
and trust me I know about the side ramps! I've played so many games I've tried pretty much everything! (including building in a far corner) :D
I just realized I forgot to mention that the forcefield keybinding and fungal spore are both 'F' on the King.
Keep up the good work, I'll check out the map asap.
Teirisius, many of your suggestions were added on version 1.3b
I hope now you can get through the voidrays. :)
This map has only 2 ramps with 2 miniramps nearby (one on the left side and one on the right side). You don't have to stay in the middle.
A couple things I've noticed (1.2b)
Pokeling will sometimes not return to the King, and will not attack. Happens especially on the ramps.
Allow building addons/upgrades to be instantly researched in the beginning (So if you choose to spend resources on tech units you can)
Solo I was barely able to get through voidrays phase; I enjoy this game but I can't get past it no matter what I've tried. (Banelings + Voidrays. . .)
I'm not -too- wild about having to mine vespeyne, but I suppose you need some macro.
I'd really love to see a version of the same map with the platform only having one or two ramps, so you can play solo easier.
I have yet to try multiplayer with this, so that might be a bit more balanced.
hey, how is that they can play with other people? hamachi local lan connection?
New version: 1.2b
Map size increased and time between levels increased.
