View Full Version : 3v3 Great Divide (FINAL) - Many Screenshots
1st Dec 04, 3:42 PM
Changes from previous version:
- added cover & terrain
- changed terrain so player 2 has same access to strategic point how player 4 on other side
- textured ALL visible terrain
- got this f***ing minimap working (by combining 3 versions)
Hi, this is my first mapping try, i hope you will like it. It is designed for long, huge battles. There are 2 ramps on every side of canyon. Only one broad passage over the river. Relic and 2 Strategic points are located on an isle in the river. Large cliffs require usage of jump units ;). HAVE FUN!
Any suggestions are welcome!

Map loaded and ran properly.
As promised, a big honkin' map for big honkin' battles. Large base area, but players must move out to cap points - most are middle map, on island and river bed.
Nearly vertical surfaces produce strange sights - dreds coming straight for the camera.
Wide lanes promote easy navigation.

mirrored at DOWFiles :)
The strat points in the "middle" seem to be towards the right hand side of the map slightly more (looking at the top screenshot)
Played it a few times and the team nearest to the points always gets the early game advantage because of this.
Great map and yeah, you do get epic battles.

Thanks for your comments. I know that there have to be done some balancing because of strategic points. Had no time for mapping last time, but i will fix this as i will put some more detail in plateaus (they look so huge and empty) ...
About hosting at DoW-Files i wanted to wait till map is ready :P. I hope i can change File afterwards!!
Check back soon i think i will upload final version this weekend ... or at least till Tuesday!

This really is one of the better maps out there in my opinion. I had no problems with the original version and I hope you don't go overboard with adding too much stuff, but I guess I'm developing a pet peeve about maps with too much decoration on them when less would be just as effective, especially the ones that push the fog and sky out to infinite and leave those of us with minimum spec computers watching slide shows whenever we try to angle the camera away from the default...
I'm not a big fan of releasing multiple versions of maps, because it confuses people (you've got the right idea by holding off on the final version, at the same time, it's hard to fault Jamie for his dedication to having a complete flock of DoW maps -- maybe it's a Murder of DoW maps? A Battalion of DoW Maps?), but you're still in mid development and are looking for feedback and that's what this forum is all about.
Um, did I mention that I really like this map a lot?
Why I bring up all that other stuff, I'll never know. Anyway, I really love your map. :)
Wanna join my cabal? :bunny:

Put the map in the /Dawn of War/w40k/data/scenarios/mp and also in the /Dawn of War/w40k/data/scenarios/sp if you want to play it in Single Player Mode. =)
9th Jan 05, 3:29 AM
i can't find that scenarios file
omg please help i would love to play this map
9th Jan 05, 10:57 AM
normally only [Drive]:\Dawn of War\W40k\Data exists. If the following folders \scenarios\mp doesn't exists you simply have to create them

Had a hard time playing with the AI on this one .
I played 3x3 orks vs SM (me SM ) and the AI(orks)did a good job holding the center island but my allies were bunked out buy the terrain I dont think thay could "get it" thay made a base and just stood around (I did send Req and power to them to help but that did nuthing LOL) so it was me vs 3X ork armies .
Would be fun VS real people but the AI has a hard time with it , I did like the very diffrent look and feel of the map , great job there !
