Send in your own ideas for maps now, as we are currently making a mappack that contains your maps! It's easy to make an image with a paint program. We prefer an image with the following specifications: Map heights with a key (ex: white is low land, black is high land, use fade to show differences) Objects (ex: tree is dark green, blue shaman is big blue and braves small blue, heads are gray etc etc) Stonehead information (ex: worship ammount-20, spell-EQ amount 6, shape-Totem, w.s.time-1 minute). Just send us your image and a description, and anything else you feel you should add to make it easier to understand exactly what you want, and we'll do the rest! Include what you want stoneheads to contain, what affects you want, etc. If we get enough submissions, we will hold a vote to see which ones will make it in the mappack. Other submissions may find their way into random mappacks later down the line. You will, of course, get all credit for your idea! Send all submissions to TheGabber@strategyplanet.com
Example of how to send us your map idea(s)
Where the shamen are is where their reincarnation site will be. Include wildies around the shaman unless you wanna start off with no braves ;)
