Wraith's Rating out of 10 ("!!"=Not Recommended for online use)
As Simple As It Gets (8 Players)Close range map, just slightly smaller than CQ. Designed for fun to see what kind of map could be made with just one line of data in the resource.sphere file.
Author: Wraith
6
Bag Shot Row (4 Players)
Online Version (No Nebulae or Meteor Storms)
One of my first maps. It is a long map where each team of 2 spawns right next to each other. Loaded with resources at spawn point sufficient for a long range fleet but sparse RU in the middle.
Author: Wraith

!!
Black Diamond (4 Players)Specially designed and thought out to make 2v2 games become more team based rather than just having two 1v1 battles. Close range map with medium amount of RU.
Author:Wraith
7.5
Boxed In (8 Players)
4 Player Version
Very short range, very three dimensional, medium amount of RU spread out and tricky to harvest. Get 6-8 players on FFA with small bounties and no hyperspacing and let the fun begin!
Inspiration: Baxter
Author: Wraith
7.5
Checkmate (2 Players)This is Cata-Chess! Ok, so its not much like chess but the layout is supposed to resemble a chessboard and pieces. Each player starts with identical ships which each take the place of a chess piece. Fun to look at, not so fun to play after the first few games.
Inspiration: STATIC-X
Author: Wraith
Visual: 8
Gameplay: 2
Checkmate 2 (2 Players)Psychohistory pointed out that the Kings (the CS) are not facing each other as they should be in real chess. This version has fixed that problem.
Troubleshooter: Psychohistory

Ched Nasad (6 Players)3v3 layout. Players who start next to each other must ally and fight the other 3 players on opposite side of map. Large map with many RU. Made for large fleet tactics.
Inspiration: Therites X
Author: Wraith
6.5
Concourse (8 Players)This is a smallish circular map carefully designed to make each starting spot exactly the same. Also it was made to feel like Close Quarters but without the infamous corner spots.
Author: Wraith
8
Close Quarters 1v1 Corners (2 Players)This map is made for medium range 1v1 games. Both players start in adjacent corner spots on the Close Quarters map.
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
6
Close Quarters 1v1 Centers (2 Players)This map is made for closer range 1v1 games. Both players start in close center spots on the Close Quarters map.
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
7
Close Quarters 1v1 OpCorners (2 Players)This map is made for longer range 1v1 games. Both players start in opposing corner spots on the Close Quarters map.
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
6
Close Quarters 1v1 Short Range (2 Players)This map is made for short range 1v1 games. One player starts in a corner and the other player starts in a center spot immediately adjacent to him on the Close Quarters map.
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
8
Close Quarters 1v1 Short Range Version 2Same as CQ1v1SR but due to complaints about the corner spot having a bad crystal, the corner spot has been switched to the other side.
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
8
Close Quarters 1v1 Short Range with observer (3 Players)This map is made for short range 1v1 games with the capacity for an observer. Same starting locations as CQ1v1 Short Range, but now their is a third starting spot for an observer. The observer will be immediately identified as he will spawn with no workers or recons at bottom of the CQ map.
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
8.5
Close Quarters FFA (4 Players)Set up for games where 2 players fight each other on one side of map and the winner will then face off against the victor of the 1v1 on the opposite side.
Inspiration: ratamaq
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
6.5
Close Quarters Cubed (8 Players)Simply the Close Quarters map 3 times stacked on top of each other (triple-layered). A bit too laggy for online use but can become a fun game over LAN or a direct TCP/IP connection.
Inspiration: STATIC-X or Baggy X (I forget)
Editor of original map: Wraith

!!
Close Quarters Without Crystals (8 Players)Close Quarters with the crystals removed. Good for beast 1v1 practice or for training noobs, or even for just a relaxing game.
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
6.5
CQ EquilibriumThis is a circular version of CQ designed to get rid of the corner spots so many people complain about. In this map every starting location is the same distance to the center and the same distance to the nearest RU patch and endangering crystal.
Inspiration: STATIC-X
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
7
Diamond Cell (4 Players)One of my first maps. Medium/Short range map. Can become a battle for the lush RU patches in the center or a conservative war fought on the outskirts.
Author: Wraith
7
Double Carrier KAF (5 Players)This is an improved King and Fools map with each Fool controlling 2 carriers. It's not as overwhelming for the King as it may seem as even though each Fool has double the SU, it is harder to manage and support two carriers with one person and limited RUs. The 8 carriers (4 "Fools") ally against the Command Ship (1 "King").
Author: Wraith
8
Double Carrier KAF for 3 (3 Players)
COMING SOON!
This is a 3 player version of Double Carrier KAF. The two "Fools" now control 4 carriers each.
Author: Wraith
-
Enkidu's Glory (8 Players)Medium/Short range map. You must fight for your RU.
Author: Wraith
7
Enkidu's Glory AFB Style (8 Players)
Online Version (Excludes nebulae, dust clouds, and meteor showers)
This is a larger version of Enkidu's Glory, made for 3v3 or 4v4 games.
Author: Wraith
7.5
!!
Gladiator (5 Players)4 Hunters, 1 Gladiator. Everyone starts with a siege cannon.
Inspiration: STATIC-X
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
4
Gladiator 2 (5 Players)You can build ramming frigates in this one. The "Gladiator" starts out with enough rammers to push away the center crystals or for any other usage that might seem fit. Also the depth of the map has been increased.
Inspiration: STATIC-X
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
4.5
Gladiator 3 (5 Players)Same as Gladiator 2 except now the game will still work if a player wishes to use Beast. They can then build Defense Field Frigates and infect stuff, but of course they have no siege.
Inspiration: STATIC-X
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
4.5
GX Battlefield (8 Players)An improved version of Imperial Clash. Large/Medium range map with plenty of RU to start with, but you must fight for the rest. The only crystals are in the middle so its a mostly harvesting-centered map.
Upon request of: GX Clan
Author: Wraith
8
Helm's Deep (8 Players)Armed For Burial sized map with Close Quarters characteristics (square shaped, crystals in precarious positions, etc.). Also more 3D then either of those two.
Inspiration: Therites X
Author: Wraith
6.5
Imperial Clash (8 Players)The precursor to GX Battlefield. A ring in the middle with 8 lines sprouting out towards each player. The only crystals are in the middle so its a mostly harvesting-centered map. Imp Clash has more RU and a more sloppy center than GX Battlefield, which I recommend above this one.
Author: Wraith
4.5
Impervious (5 Players)3 defenders equipped with 2 carriers each attempt to prevent 2 attackers (also with 2 carriers each) from destroying the Faal-Corum which is surrounded by crystals.
Author: Wraith
6
Incongruity (8 Players)Complete Noob-Styles Close Quarters. You start with 4 workers, I added 40 percent more RU to each patch, as well as a bit more X and Y space for those who enjoy longer games. The biggest addition is that you start with 2 Command Ships and the default setting is no research. Made for fun for those who want a relaxing game that requires little skill to play.

Instability (2 Players)Silly little map where you have to stop the other guy from blowing the crystals on your side, the only trick is you have to find a way over there...
Author: Wraith

King and Fools Custom (5 Players)I'm sure you all know what King and Fools is (KAF). Well I found myself wanting to play it again but unfortunately the computer I had running at that time had almost no custom maps downloaded so I resolved to make my own. I made this one from scratch and seems to be the one everyone is using as of late so I hope you enjoy it!
Original KAF design: ??? (lost original map in a reinstall)
Author: Wraith
7.5
King and Fools for 3 (3 Players)I again found myself wanting to play KAF but there were only 3 people in the lobby so I proceeded to make this map. Same thing as KAFCust(5) except now there are only 2 "Fools" and each of them controls 2 carriers.
Original KAF design: ??? (lost original map in a reinstall)

King and Fools for 3 Version 2 (3 Players)In this version the "Fools" start out with a few extra ships to help even the odds.

Kill 'em All (8 Players)Large map, strategically placed medium to heavy RU patches with plenty of endangering crystals.
Inspiration and Design: STATIC-X
Author: Wraith
9
Kill the Middle (8 Players)Very large map with slipgates leading to an abundance of resources. Those who control the slipgates control the game. There's also a few mines to discourage non-slipgate users.
Inspiration: Baxter
Author: Wraith
5.5
Kings and Fool (3 Players)I made this map when I wanted to take on two noobs but didn't feel right doing it on a normal map. Its two "Kings" (Command Ships) vs one "Fool" (two carriers).
Author: Wraith
3.5
Mad Close Quarters (8 Players)Regular CQ map but with the crystal sizes reversed.
Inspiration: MadOne_X_

Mad King And Fools (6 Players)5 Fools (1 Carrier, 2 Workers each)
VS
1 King (1 CS, 2 Carriers, 6 Workers, 1 Processor, 9 Multibeams).

Meddler's Exodus (2 Players)
Version X (Includes Crystals)
Straight forward 1v1 map. Medium/Short range map with enough RU to play a nice 1v1 game but not so many that it turns into a turtling game. No crystals in normal version.
Inspiration: MagpiesFlight X
Author: Wraith
8
Meddler's Exodus Long Range (2 Players)
Version X (Includes Crystals)
Longer range version of Meddler's Exodus. Includes more RU patches respective to the increase in size. No crystals in normal version.
Inspiration: MagpiesFlight X
Author: Wraith
8
Morgul Vale (8 Players)The resources are X-shaped and the players start two to each end of the X. You really need 8 players to play a fair game, with the people starting next to each other allying.
Inspiration: STATIC-X
Author: Wraith
6.5
Morgul Vale (4 Players)Same design as Morgul Vale (8) except there are only 4 player spots, one on each end of the X. Tends to a more practical game.
Author: Wraith
7.5
Odyssey (4 Players)Made totally for fun and experimentation, though rules could be set to design a fun game out of it. You'll have to download this one to see what its like.
Author: Wraith
5
Orion's Belt (4 Players)Medium sized 2v2 map centered around an asteroid belt filled with RU.
Inspiration: Baxter
Author: Wraith
7.5
Orion's Belt Version 2 (4 Players)Version 2 includes mines hidden in the asteroid belt as well as 2 giant spheres of autoguns with slipgates leading into the center (as a sort of safehaven for your CS or fleet).
Author: Wraith

!!
Orion's Belt Version 3 (4 Players)Version 3 has more slipgates.
Author: Wraith

Owl's Nest (6 Players)My favorite of Darksoul's Maps. Medium/Short range map with a thin center and spindly arms of RU reaching out at each player.
Inspiration: Niteowl
Author: Darksoul X
8
Paths of the Dead (4 Players)A simple map with two flat layers of small RU. The players start in between them. A good Beast vs Somtaaw map.
Author: Wraith
4.5
!!
Can work online if everyone has a solid connection.
Pelennor Fields (8 Players)
3 Worker Version
Medium range map with many RU though they are very difficult to harvest, or rather require skill and attention to manage. This map separates the skilled from the awesome. The original version starts each player with 4 workers. I recommend the 3 worker version.
Author: Wraith
8
Royal Guard (2 Players)Two carriers and lots of crystals at one end vs a Command Ship with no workers to start on the other. A modified layout of Bagshot Row.
Inspiration: noobs
Author: Wraith
4.5
RU CQ (8 Players)Close Quarters map with 1.5 times the amount of RU in each patch. Makes CQ a bit easier for beast players.
Inspiration: STATIC-X
Editor of original map: Wraith
Author of original CQ: Sierra
8
Siege Wars 3 (8 Players)This is the latest version of the Siege Wars map. Accommodates beast players (can build DFF, recons, SU, workers) and fixes a few bugs in the game.
Original Siege Wars map was made by: Darksoul X (I believe)
SW2.2 and SW3 were edited by: Wraith
7.5
Simple Warfare (4 Players)Quite a fun map but also fairly large for a 4 player game so it is recommended to play FFA style (with a few bounties to encourage fighting). You don't start with any workers but there is plenty of RU for the taking if you have the management skills to get a solid RU operation going early.

Static's Fighter Duel (2 Players)
No Research Version
SEE THE IN-GAME DESCRIPTION FOR HOW TO PREVENT A CRASH!
This map was made to train/test our fighter skills. You can only build fighters in the map so research wisely!
Inspiration: STATIC-X
Author: Wraith

Steal the Crystal (4 Players)There is a crystal in a middle which two opposing teams are attempting to pull across their line. If the crystal is destroyed, the perpetrating team automatically loses.
Author: Wraith
5
Subjugate Your Friends (4 Players)Used to be my favorite 1v1 map. Nice RU placement which requires strategic thinking throughout the game.
Author: Sierra (Original HW Map)
8
Survival (4 Players)
6 Player Version
A nice 1v1 map, hasn't been tested much in 2v2 battles though they would most likely be awesome as well. Medium size map, not too many RU, you must fight for your survival.
Author: Darksoul X
7.5
The Crucible (8 Players)Similar to Gladiator but even better - this map actually gives the middle guy a chance. Read the in-game description for rules.
Inspiration: subtofu
Author: Wraith
5
The Crucible 2 (8 Players)Same as The Crucible except now no one can build mimics or MCVs. Read the in-game description for rules.
Inspiration: subtofu
Author: Wraith
5.5
The Third Dimension (6 Players)This is a really fast and three dimensional map. Good for beast 1v1. I have yet to witness it, but an all-beast 3v3 would be total madness on this map. Someone should try it.
