After one year of supcom abstinence i finally got into the mood to make a new supcom map yesterday. since i wanted to make something special, i took the challenge to make a space map. I'm faking the space effekt by using perfectly flat and waveless water, which is pitch black and reflects the sun and the stars. I'm using Saya's great "lava" script (thanks alot to Saya for creating and sharing it) to destroy land units that are dropped into space by a transporter.
but faking space this way has also some minor downsides: there are some small graphical glitches at the asteroid border (like a little shadow in space and some minor flickering) and you have to set the fidelity in video settings to "high" to see the space background.
BTW: Some of you may notice that the layout of the map is based on "Seraphim Glaciers"... yes, i'm lazy. ;)


But enough of talking, here are the map infos and some screenshots:



Asteroids (20km x 20km, 8 Players)

Once one of the most resouce-rich planets in the universe, the massive battles fought to conquer it torn the planet apart. But its shattered remnants still serve as a battleground, until even the last remaining resources have been harvested.

You can find the map in the Vault as "Asteroids" and "Asteroids FA".

I hope you enjoy the map.

Greetz, Haz

[EDIT]
As people seem to want a direct download so badly, here it is:

Game hosted. Double click the game. Do not use the "Join Game" button, unless you have the map ;P

And don't forget to give some feedback and constructive criticism. :) i haven't had much playtesting on the map since i won't have much more time than this weekend to spend on it. hopefully it is very well playable, nevertheless.

Well, other than the map you chose being rather sucky, it's lots of fun.

Yes, well. It's obviously Seraphim Glaciers with "more" focus on air ;). I like the space idea and it worked out pretty well indeed. There are obviously some glitches that you probably can't circumvent, but still. One of the more annoying glitches is, that you can't see any range circles at all on the "water" (at least I couldn't see my radar ranges there). And the skybox still shows a blue sky.

So far I have no further feedback. It was a fun, quick game we had there. I particularly liked my T1 spam and the ending ;).

Ah, one other thing. The top down view looks like this for me:

(distorted stars in the middle), not as nice as in your first screenshot.

this is indeed strange. the stars shouldn't distort at all, no matter the perspective! :( are they always distorted? anyone else having the same problem?

Well, FA replaces the skybox of custom maps with the default FA one. :/ It is indeed kind of ugly to have a sky in space, but i don't know of any way to change this.

Yes it's always like that in the middle/bottom of the "space". Everything else to the "north" and "south" is undistorted.

damn. :( it surely looks ugly this way. i hope it is not a widespread problem. maybe it's a graphics card thing. i tried it on a NVidia GeForce 8800GTX. whats your card?

Radeon x1950 Pro. I'll try to fiddle around with texture settings in FA and in the driver to see if it changes anything.
