lol, i thnk R&C inspired you to do this one?

nice one.

P.S. could you use a brighter color for attack lines. i feel the red on black is a little hard to see sometimes. might be me, but i'd probably prefer something more standing out.

1. hold the whole tech 3 for any race - this should be possible
2. take all alien labs if you started as a human base or all human silos if you started as an alien
3. hold all nukes if you started as a human or hold all labs if you started as an alien

3 is possible, but only if it's impossable to take each others base (with taking mean assaulting and conquering)
because there is currently no way to make winning conditions or continents that accept starting positions as a component.

however if there is no way to 'acquire' another base there is a way to work around that issue by using normal continents for this purpose. and using bombardments, it's still possible to eliminate someone's base.

say for example someone would start as an alien, but takes a human base, he now holds both bases, there's no way to 'tell' the xml if a player started as human or as alien, so that would make 2 impossible. 3 however is possible, as someone with an alien base would then not be able to ever acquire a human base, so any player holding an alien base must have had started with one, or he'd never be able to have one, so if he holds an alien base and all labs, he has the #3 victory condition.

nope, i only saw this tread just now, so you're first to call. i liked to work with DiM on steamworks, so i'd like to do the XML for him on other maps as well, but i'll let DiM decide if he likes you or me to write the XML.

i also have some more maps in mind i'd like to make, but i need artists, can't find anyone to help me tho :(

Cool map, very nice graphics.

I'm not too fond of the name though. AYBABTU is an old joke by now, it's been overused ad nauseum... It's not really funny anymore. I'm sure you can come up with a better name for the map.

i added neutrals on the map.
the gameplay is basically like this. each player gets a base and a few non important terits.
from there each player can either expand on earth or focus on technologies. but watch out. tech slots are limited not all people will have theirs and fighting will occur. tech lvl 1 not only gives a bonus but it also allows bombardment of non important terits from the second row (1.4-1.5-.16)
to get to texh level 2 you need either an alien dna lab or a human nuke silo. this time you battle more neutrals but also get a heftier bonus and the chance to bombard the opponents' dna/nukes from the second row (2.4-2.5-2.6)
and once you have mastered the tech lvl 2 by conquering its second row you can access the first row of tech lvl 3. from there you can either attack enemy bases or you can go for the second row and master the tech to win the game.
now i'd like to add 2 more winning conditions:
1. hold a human base and all alien dna labs
2. hold an alien base and all human nuke silos
would this be too easy to do? on one hand they might seem easier to take than those 6 terits from tech lvl 3. but then again all those nukes/labs are very exposed to attacks from the land as well as bombardments from the tech tree, while the tech lvl 3 is not that hard to defend. thoughts?

V3.
added neutrals
finalized the legend and included all attack rules and all bonuses.

as soon as i finish the gameplay area and decide on the final number of terits and their position i will make sure i have perfectly visible connections.

i resent that. i actually played that game back in the early nineties. if that's an old joke than that means i'm also old... and i'm not :cry:
with all the human bases and alien bases on the map it was only natural to think of that name. :lol:
i'm not saying that i will change it or not but i am open for suggestions. if more people think aybabtu is a bad name and i get a good suggestion i'll probably do it.

Looking terribly well, I love it.
Keep up the good work, DiM.
I find the HT to AT part of the legend in the middle (bottom) rather hard to read though.

Well I have a few suggestions... not sure how good they are.

"Alien War"
"Invaders of Space"
"Space Invasion"

You could still use AYBABTU as a subtitle, if you want... to give the map some flavour.

This almost reminds me of the overview world map of the old game X-Com: UFO Defense.
