    Good suggestions ! :D

    First of all i'd like to say I love this map, I think it's one of the only maps that I've seen that were ported from SC1 to SC2 that's actually decent.

    I think there is only a couple of minor adjustments to make this game great.
    To keep this post short I'll just list it and you guys can tell me what you think and discuss.

    - I think the vision circle should be smaller and everything beyond field of vision should be pitch black.
    mini map should be pitch black but the open map should stay the same.
    - You should throw in a creepy music loop to make it scarier Very Happy If the game can keep you in a constant state of fear it'd make the best game.

    No flamers please, just constructive discussion.

    IMO, I would drop the minimap and depend on the new map system more for better flexibility.But I'm not sure how such change will affect the game, will see.

    As for your music suggestion, I've actually made a system related to soundtracks one time but it was not working well. I've recently got my save system working without affecting other triggers/systems but by itself, it's still bugged.

    Alright that's good. Sucks about the music thing though :/ One thing that I loved about the SC1 thing was the creepy 30 second loop.

    Well, one of the most iconic things I could remember were most of the thing maps in SC1 were colorblind.. Where everyone was the same color.. I believe someone reported this as a "bug" before but I think this would be cool as an option or a game mode.
    There were also objectives that the thing could kill and I guess that would help with game flow. In the current SC2 engine, i'm guessing you could make these "objectives" into anything, forgive me if i'm wrong.
    The other thing was there was no "clear" fog of war but that was native to SC1.. Idk if you can add that but it would be cool if you could hardly see anything and make the game more creepy and scarier.
    If you need a more "in-depth" explanation I guess I could boot up SC:BW and host a game of the thing to check it out.
