This area might be filled with pixels or  just filled completely to prevent crate drops. Gonna check this at the evening.

I'm not too familliar with all the map types and just gave it the "Shopper" label.. Should I label it differently?

This area is just black and does not prevent crate drops or spawns, is this desirable?

Yes, this map is shoppable. Lets look closer:



Color #0 should be black. It doesnt really matter coz WA will swap black color and current #0 anyway but TUS might take these two maps as different ones, maybe.





You have used 64 colors with dithering. Thats why the girder looks like this and map's size is over 1 MB. 113 colors w/o dithering would be better, i think. I would like to get its source for some experiments.





Some litter pixels are left left and right :D





This area should not be spawnable. Btw, these wagons looks MetalSlug-ish :)

You can fill it with solid color, as darkest as possible, i use 1,1,1:





usually i use for this purpose this pattern:



Empty 20x20 square with a single pixel. This gives us this:



This fill is unnoticable while background is black as well as if it is with gradient, and prevents worms, crates and everything else from spawning there automatically. The pixels' color should be something average between black and the average color of a gradient you gonna use (red if its deafult background theme - Beach, blue if its Time and so on).

I used this method at least here, here and here.


Another option is to do it like this:



Players would be able to get those "locked" crates brom the bottom, through thin ceiling. I used this once, here.

@XanKriegor, thanks for the feedback. I'll look in to it when I have some time.

As for your request to get the source, I'm afraid that I couldn't find the latest version of the map any more. I do however have the source of an earlier version of the map, which I pasted a link to below.
It's a PSD file, if you'd like an other format, let me know and I'll see if I can provide it.

Source: http://download-manager.nl/%5bAKALucas%5d%20Underground%20source.psd

Let me know if you've got any other ideas or edits to the map!  ;D


Label it as Miscellaneous (Other), last option of the map type field.

Thanks, I now understand the different schemes, and I thinks it's best to label the map as Miscellaneous as you said.
