Can we start adding links people need, in order to have a complete maps? So basically, we need links here for the Origin client fixes first then map packs including maps like reymamas garden 2012 4v4, tiberium gardens 3v3, plus others like winter horror etc etc.

make it a sticky?
ill update this main post.

Ive been surfing the KW whilst it was online and came across a lot of newbies who bought the 17 game edition but couldn't play custom maps and didn't know about this site or gr.org and so I had to link them loads of stuff and realised we need a simple one thread place with all links on what to do and what to download plus an upto date map packs.

As a map maker, I know that players have very different map preferences among them. A list of "must have maps" can't be done, because that would be the personal opinion of one person. Having said that, I suggest that the map list be organized in these categories:

- New ranked maps:
Here would be the 1.02+ map packs 1 and 2. They are the only ranked map packs afaik.
1.02+ Map Pack 1, Release 9

1.02+ Map Pack 2, Release 9

- Ranked-like maps:
Here would be the 1.02+ map pack 3; and other good maps that provide gameplay similar to the ranked maps. They should be symmetrical (or near symmetrical), economy balanced, the main base should have at least 3 ground attack paths, there should be places to expand your base, and it must not have scripts that affect the normal rules. These maps should be suitable for skilled players.
1.02+ Map Pack 3, Release 9

Tiberian Dunes (8 players)

Tiberium Resistance (6 players)

Predatore Map Pack 5

- Popular noob-friendly maps:
Here would be the good quality and/or popular maps which do not meet the requirements for ranked maps. No custom rules maps, or non-standard start locations maps here. Most of the maps in this category have accelerated tiberium growth rate, or they are maps with naturally defended main bases (either by mountains or water). You may add here maps like: Reymamas garden 2012 4v4, Tiberium gardens 3v3), and Islands Paradise.
Tournament Dam (2 players)

Armageddon Mountains (4 players)

Predatore Map Pack 4

- Multiplayer custom rules maps:
Here would be the maps with scripts that change the way the game is played. For example: tower defence maps; or maps like Tiberium Blood Arena. 
Dust Zones (2 players control points map)

Advanced Weapons Lab (2 players Nukes on tiberium map)

- More multiplayer maps:
Here would be those maps that don't fit in the other categories, and other low quality maps. You may add here maps like: Winter Horror, or Bridges to nowhere. Some of the Predatore Map Pack 4 maps may be here, but I can't split the map pack now.

- Single player missions:
Here would be, as the name says, the sinlge player missions.

I've linked my maps as examples only. There are many other maps to add there, ofc. I suggest adding the number of players (and the minimap if possible) on each map. Also, you may want to add a reminder of how the custom maps can be installed manually (in which folder they have to be copied, depending their OS); or you may want to suggest any map manager program (I haven't tried this one yet).

PS: Have a look at Dust Zones, the latest map I've made .

Hi Predator

I am testing your maps today and I will create some videos aswell.

Do you know why custom maps don't work? It says it cannot connect to gamespy servers.
By custom maps, I mean maps like tib gardens 2012, reymamas 8 way gardens etc.

How do we fix this?

Predator - can I also add, ALL maps you have created, can you make them into ONE map pack please? There are too many zipz to download and a lot of players ingame don't know what theyre doing. Any chance to get 1 map pack for all these maps please?>

I don't know how to fix the problem when trying to play custom maps on the new server; but I've seen you've already asked it in Revora forums, and they are working on it.
With regard to making one big map pack, as I've stated before, I don't agree with that. People should be able to choose what they want to download; either individual maps or small map packs of similar map styles. You were going to make a list of download links, you should do that, it will be helpful. Besides, there are compiled maps, uncompiled maps, 1.02 maps, 1.02+ maps; you can't mix all of them in the same map pack.

what is uncompiled and compiled maps?
could we do map packs like this -

2v2 maps 1.02 release 1
2v2 maps 1.02+ release 1
4v4 maps 1.02 release 1
4v4 maps 1.02+ release 2

if u can do that, then atleast any new maps you make then you can make release 2 ,3 etc?
I went to cnc labs n theres so many maps im not sure which is latest which is old which is bugged etc

Uncompiled maps are the maps which are saved as .map files; the way the WorldBuilder save the maps. These maps have to be copied into the maps folder and can be automatically transferred by the game, before the match start. The downside of these maps is that they are prone to desyncs or errors while playing, and in some PCs a lower texture quality can be noticed. They take more time to load.
Compiled maps are the official maps, or the 1.02+ maps, which are included in .big files. The WorldBuilder doesn't generate this kind of maps. They can't be automatically transferred, but they are more stable than uncompiled maps. To install these maps, you can't just copy them into a folder. You also have to edit some config files for the game to load them.

I'm not thinking on making a new 1.02 map pack for now. I've made too few new maps since the 1.02+ R9 release, and I think good players want 1.02+ maps (not 1.02 uncompiled maps).

Afaik, cnclabs tests all the maps before they publish them in their site, so there shouldn't be any bugged map. However they haven't added new maps since a long time ago.

It's nice that you want to help making easier for people to get new maps; but I don't think all those maps have to be in a map packs to be downloaded. It's ok if some maps are provided as individual maps.

Thank you predator :=D

Im interested in 3v3 and 4v4 maps. At the moment I only have Nod Gardens, Bordertown and Rocktagon.
What others should I download for 1.02+?
