    First put [req] at the front of your post so I can better identify it.

    I need what size you want, small medium large planet wise. It seems easier to do large and medium custom planets because csgs scale on how close to the pole they are in a way.

    Base biome you want. I can only add forests if I use earth base. Water and lava pools also are start biome based and to get good lakes it will take much longer.

    What csg themes you want. I.e. metal, lava, ice, desert.

    Game type

    Number of teams and spawns per team. If you want a 2 army map then play it with three it will not work properly.

    Metal preferences. None. Some. In spawn only. Normal. High. Metal everywhere for everyone!!!

    Please only post requests here for single planets at a time. If you want a full multiple planet system then you will need to wait much longer.

    I will put my mark on all planets somewhere, please do not remove this as I take pride in my work.

    If you want to use one of my maps as a template please ask me privately and leave my mark there if all possible.

    @elodea

    @cptconundrum is making me a mappack thing since i am severly inept at that stuff.

    @murcanic i cannot make your map due to new limitations on lava water hieght locked in at 33. also subractive brushes cannot move lava like water can be moved with them.

    @reptarking You can't change the slider but you can manually edit the text field to change lava height.

    I intend to learn how to do such stuff myself, but it looks like you have it down already, so until (if) I catch up, here's my idea. Best explained with a picture.

    [req] spawn at poles, metal evenly distributed across the planet to encourage expansion, spiral that alternates between land-mass and water (in the hope water ups its game at a future date). - basically creates a long tug of war, extended settons clutch land bridge. Think the map would have to be relatively small else would become and absolute slog-fest, and too air dominated. The spirals are relatively wide, so pelter can fire from one shore to teh other, but only just enough to make it a viable tactic rather than a dominating one. Think 4 v 4 (or 3v3 depending on orbital) - so one goes land, one air, one sea, one orbital.

    Really good idea I'll make a quick thing for you tomorrow and screen shot it with the idea all laid out and see what you think.

    Excellent work, so this will be available as long as we have the system sharing mod?
    Kudos for taking requests, as some people don't have the patience or skill to make exciting custom maps (me included!)
    I hope that the best maps can be officially incorporated somehow.

    Map packs are separate mods that you download on PAMM. They will automatically install System Sharing if you don't have it already.

    [REQ] Make a "themed" map. So something that looks like say, a mining facility on a desert planet or something, with a lot of metal around a central node, and scarce metal everywhere else. And then have decent terrain and choke points. Kind of a "king of the hill" style map.

    EDIT: I'll probably make my own version of this as well, lol.

    So I just finished my version of the map in my above post, but I can't seem to run it. Can someone else try importing it and seeing if they can run it? Because if you can't I've got a bug report to file...
