Basic Mapping Guidelines

Try to keep your map small - between 64x64 and 96x96. Dont worry if your map is already made, some map resizing programs exist, so you can resize your already-finished map.

Use Fog and Farclip - Sensible values are recommended. Existing Savage maps usually have decent fog and farclip values.

Test - It is necessary to test your map. Test worker pathing, make a practice base, make sure there are no glitches in building placement. Iron your map out for exploits.
