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.

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 spawnpoint sufficient for a long range fleet but sparse RU in the middle.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Close Quarters 1v1 Short Range with observer (2 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.

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)

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

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").

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.

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.

Gladiator (5 Players)4 Hunters, 1 Gladiator. Everyone starts with a siege cannon.
Inspiration: STATIC-X

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.

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 Defence Field Frigates and infect stuff, but of course they have no siege.

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

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.
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
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.

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 now 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)

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.

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.

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).

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

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.
