This topic is for the discussion of unapproved custom maps.  If you post a map and it doesn't get approved, check here to see if there are any outstanding questions regarding your map.

A map that requires speed and some pretty good strategy. Don't forget that you can pause and build :)

I'm doubtful this map is winnable given the speed of the creeper and the location of the weapons techs.  Please see http://knucklecracker.com/forums/index.php?topic=1063.0 and post a screenshot of the completion graph for the map and I will release this map. 

You can also contact support@knucklecrasker.com for additional information.

Please see http://knucklecracker.com/forums/index.php?topic=1063.0 or email support@knucklecracker.com with a screen shot of the completion graph for this map. I simply do not see how you can achieve the objectives in the stated 40 seconds.

Is it possible to start attaching the maps to your posts so we can test them as well.

It certainly is possible (many things are possible), but it is extra work and I do not know what Virgil's position on that is. There are a number of changes coming in the approval systemt, so perhaps it is better to wait until then.

What the heck. There are a bunch of other impossible or near-impossible maps. I've released this map so the best brains in the community can figure it out.

This is it. It's all in. There's no turning back. Will the war finally end, or will all their efforts be in vain.

This is the most problematic map I have seen ever. Firstly, the map lags intolerably right from the start. (Many of the collectors are unnecessary and overbuild. The drones are never needed.) Then you *have* to wait about 27 minutes (game time - about 1 hour elapsed time) for the walls to be eroded so that you can build connections to the Thor tech. Then, even the Thor is insufficient to suppress the emitters. Finally, it is impossible to build connections to the totems.

I beat it, after two hours (though one could beat it earlier by "floating it")

although I will gladly revise the map to make it quicker kar check your PMs in a second please

This is for the record.. I will not go silently into the night! I will not go without a fight! Tonight I make my final stand! I go forth in the hell I choose for myself, not the one chosen for me! I will return from this hell, or leave this world knowing I died a cause I wanted to die for!

You are the captain of your ship, but a fierce storm has grounded it deep in the ocean. People have already been swept off and the life rafts won't last long out there! Save the men and escape as fast as you can. Also, watch out for freak waves...

The creeper is too aggressive and a foothold cannot be established. If you post a winning score this decision can be reconsidered.

I've sent my score now. You just have to be really careful with the mortars at the beginning. I hope to see it up soon to see who else can do it.
