Well, I could give you guys some prototypes, but as they all use quite a bit of the "new" (dev branch) terrain, you'd have to play them on that server.

If there's enough interest though, I'll post one or two of them up, in the near future.

Hey Doc, Hey Perun;

The Idea of a few new laddermaps sounds appealing to say the least.

Only to play the same 10 maps over and over agiain gets quiet boring over the time;
Due to the fact, that the ladder comunity is growing ( 100 listed players a few month ago and today 135) I think there is enough interest for (at least testwise) new maps;

I would have no problems with doing a few testruns myselfe or help balancing unfinished maps.
The new terrain is pretty useful, btw; especially the new variety of forrests one can choose from; the coastal reeve is also interesting with its 70% defense for fishes; also the new 1.6 branch will be out soon I asume, so it would be the right time to rush some more 1v1 maps into 1.6.1 :)

greetings, Hagbart

Doc,

I'm remaking my 2 Player Clash map. Should I use the dev branch map editor to get that new terrain in for the 1.6 release?
