Could you put a few screenshots? I make maps myself, always looking for ideas! :)

I have to say that if I were looking to host a map, I'd want to see a few screen shots, and be able to download the map to examine the file, especially from somebody who's new to map making.

Honestly, Delta Lead, your map, were it "stolen" wouldn't be worth much at all, no matter how good it is.

This is an open source game. If you want to gain respect in this community, you contribute something to it. While you are certainly within your rights to not release a map into the public domain, or license it in an open source friendly way, we're certainly within our rights to ignore you.

Don't worry about people "stealing" your maps. We just had a recent incident where somebody took another author's map, made a few minor changes, and called it his own. He got shouted down in a big hurry. (He also posted an apology.)

Sadly people can still /saveworld and host an unreleased map without your permission. If you want to get as close to a copyright as possible, I'd do "/saveworld -m name" in a private server. That will make the map a giant mesh making it a lot harder for noobs to take your map and change a few things and call it their own. If the map is hosted, you could contact the hoster and see if he'd host the original map instead, as it would be faster for clients to download.

I'd also go with the most restrictive license allowed. According to the license thread, all your license must allow is "unrestricted use and distribution of the map." So slap on a http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ license.

Of course this doesn't mean anything if people just don't care that they steal.

Honestly, you probably have a smaller chance of someone hosting your map if you don't post it than if you do. Some screenshots would be helpful or even the map file.

The point of creating a thread about a Work in Progress on the forum is for people to discuss it.

If you have no map file, or screenshots, and someone is already hosting it for you, then there is no point in posting it, since we have nothing to discuss.

I have this map running at bzexcess.com port 5164 if anyone want to see what it's like. He found some bugs in the map with the teleporter links.
