Turkish translation of the description on the map


Turkish Youth, Your first duty is to preserve and to defend Turkish
Independence and the Turkish Republic forever. This is the very
foundation of your existence and your future. This foundation is your most
precious treasure. In the future, too, there may be malevolent people at
home and abroad, who will wish to deprive you of this treasure. If some
day you are compe lled to defend your independence and your Republic, you
must not hesitate to weigh the possibilities and circumstances of the
situation before doing your duty. These possibilities and circumstances
may turn out to be extremely unfavourable. The enemies c onspiring against
your independence and your Republic may have behind them a victory
unprecedented in the annals of the world. It may be that, by violence and
trickery, all the fortresses of your beloved fatherland may be captured,
all its shipyards occupied, all its armies dispersed and every corner of
the country invaded. And sadder and graver than all these circumstances,
thos e who hold power within the country may be in error, misguided and
may even be traitors. Furthermore, they may identify personal interests
with the political designs of the invaders. The country may be
impoverished, ruined and exhausted. Youth of Turkey's future, even in
such circumstances it is your duty to save Turkish Independence and the
Republic. You will find the strength you need in your noble blood.

Thank you for a fun map. I'd like to point out that a large number of players will probably never come to this site, and since they may not read Turkish well, it might have been a good idea to put the translation as the text of the map. It would reach a wider audience that way.

I thought the way the crescent moon and star was revealed as the anti-creeper built up was interesting.  Hope to see more maps from you in the future.

A goodnight to all and to all a good night - Goodnight Moon

I disagree with all the map mods. Nothing wrong with putting up a non-english map. It's about the map, not the language.  FUn map too man. :)

All of my maps take a few things:
1. Patience.
2. Saving often/trying different things every time.
3. Knowing that the simple is always wrong.
4. Love for your great Angel who spends hours and possibly days on maps that people hate. :D

The language didn't really bother me, and we've had flag maps before, so to me that also isn't an issue.  As far as the map goes, I thought it was simple and well balanced.  I thought the creeper output balanced well with your potential power output which led to a nice little creeper battle.  I liked the semi-circle of white creeper because with just enough fire power, I was able to use it as a wall, which is something I haven't done in any other map (that was a clever use of the flag design being incorporated into the battle design).  I won't say it was my favorite map, but I still enjoyed it.  I think it was a good job on your part
