What we have here is a moderately sized map built for 2 players revolving around an asteroid belt preventing cross-movement. Whilst the idea it self has been done before, most notably with the War ones where you had unlimited resources and would spam the wormhole up with defences, this one does it with a bit more style. There is a sufficient amount of resources (all three) but not enough to allow you to create an endless armada based off them. No, you'll almost certainly need trading outposts (and I can think up obvious routes right now, going along the back of your section) to bolster supplies, making it that bit harder for the Borg and Species 8472 in this map.
That being said, I think there could be some fun playing on this. The gravity wells, placed sporadically with the planets, will make warping a bit difficult in the enemy's territory. It's the wormholes that will provide the fun. Obviously, the balance is between getting enough of a defence, and not restricting outwards fire-power. Regardless, this will make for a good slugging-it-out match...and they're always fun.
I made this map because I always liked the idea of going through a transwarp gate to a place near the enemy, and setting up a new base to stage my attack from. Basically, both sides have a transwarp gate near their side that they can take control of to get to the other side of the asteroid belt. If you want to use this map in your mod, I would be happy to let you. However, I would appreciate it if you asked me before using it. To install, place the bmp, bzn, and txt files into your bzn folder. It will then be selectable from the mission select screen. You can contact me at [email protected] Thanks for downloading. Enjoy!
