Still waiting for a video from someone - anyone.
I've tried duplicating the construction that Kithros showed, but the Creeper is blocking all movement - and the diamonds are destroying the Micro Rifts.

You pretty much just need to know exactly where the diamonds are going to spawn and don't build anything there (which I think is bad design - the diamonds don't really serve any purpose in the map except to be arbitrarily annoying to people who don't have the map memorized). You have enough time to build a blaster and shoot down the diamonds when they spawn - but if you were building a microrift wherever the diamond spawns, then you're just screwed. You want to wait as long as possible to build the microrifts - I forget what time the terrain deccays through, but I think it's at somewhere around 2 minutes, but you should start building the microrifts 25 seconds before the terrain finishes decaying through (and avoid deficits)

btw Dbit, can we expect a map from you now? http://knucklecracker.com/forums/index.php?topic=7786.0 lmao. I know you said a book... but I think a thread counts. :P
EDIT: sorry if I sent you a message about that, I'm not sure if I did. Lol. I was typing a message, and my iPod died right when I pressed send. :/

Kithros - Thanks - I'll finish that first chamber and then move on down the road. After watching that video, this game is way more than I want to get a piece of.

Ebon - Thanks for that write up about creating games, but that takes way more time and talent than I have.

Thanks all.

Lol, this was my first real map... It's a huge slog, as you can see. Don't worry, my next map won't be quite as evil... Actually, I can't really say that... Ok, my next map won't be nearly as much of a slog as this one. Lmao. Also, look forward to an epic boss fight made by yours truly... It may appear under Link327's name, it's for his series.
EDIT: also, how do you know you don't have the talent if you haven't tried, Dbit? I'm sure you could come up with something. Also, don't tell you you don't have the time, you spent 2 days trying this hellhole of map. :P *is off to engineer a flying pig*
Seriously though, play around with it, I'm not asking for anything this complex... But I'm sure you can come up with something cool.

It isn't so hard if you play through once, accepting failure, and take a screenie or two of field locations/behavior.

Amazing map though, very entertaining :D

Thanks for making it!

Sorry it's such a slog... The fields are neat though! Lol. This map basically exists in fields... It fails in balancing.

Blackie - this is a great map - very tricky start up and I was satisfied to just finish that first chamber.
Thanks,

My next map should be much more satisfactory, and it's a lot less sloggy. The author is Ebon heart by some royal screwup of mine though... :/
