This is 7rock. A 7 player open space map created by Ntanel StormBlade
The map gives no natural protection (asteroids, Nebula) for your fleet. The best defensive positions on the map are the four corner positions as they really only have one adjacent opponent (the other is too far away to be consider a direct threat). The centre position is possibly the hardest to defend as it is open to attack from all sides really. The two middle positions to the extreme left and right are also difficult to defend as you will face attacks from above, below and to your openside from the centre. This map really requires a line of turrets to be built to mark your territory and thus defend it.
Another interesting map, fight against 6 Hard AI's allied together while you're in the central position and you might get another "Battle for Crusis Major".
Nice work Ntanel
7rock is a new 7 player map. To install, extract "7rock.bmp", "7rock.bzn" and "7rock.txt" into the "bzn" subfolder inside the "Star Trek Aramada II" folder.
I release this map under the understanding that I am not liable for any issues it may cause. Essentially, you take your fate into your own hands, you have been warned. To ease your mind however, the map works fine for me. Also, if you use the map and/or it components in any form in a future release, this file or the contents within must be included.
If you find an issue, please let me know. Heck, if you know how to fix the issues you find, include that. I used the map editor that came with the original Star Trek Armada II release.
You can reach me via the forums at Star Trek Armada II: Fleet Operations (http://www.fleetops.net/). My username is Ntanel.
Tip: There is no protection, build fast or perish!
Thank you and ciao!
