Skylash Looks impresive :P How much time you need to do that ? Only for Multiplayer i think... to big for single and you wait few minutes for PC move

Aargxl I changed this into comment form, as I wouldn't want to discourage without even properly playing it by a bad rating which seems inadequate if I can't really play it.

Original "rating comment"

Heya, first and foremost, it's great there are still new maps coming, so thank you!
Nevertheless, I tried your map a few times, and basically couldn't play a few turns, hence I can only do a bad rating for now. Should you correc those bugs/failures or circumvent them somehow, I'd be happy to play and rate again, as I do like the setting, and it's a pretty straightforward map, which could be fun to play! Maybe those crashes are indeed a version problem, not sure? Like, did you amybe use some unit mods or something?

For info, I play with the unofficial v1.4, upped to v1.5 stuff (tho the game still shows v1.4 in the main screen) - this shouldn't state a problem if your map is designed for a previous version, like the official latest v1.3 patch as far as I know)

Playability 1:
Played as Syrons first - I never got to play my turn as the game got stuck during 4th or 5th AI player turn - they must have encountered something gamebreaking.
Then played as humans/pirates - After my 4th turn, the game crashed during 2nd or 3rd players turn.
I Don't know what happened, as my map is still largely covered and I could not observe what transpired to end the game early, but as at least two different AI players could crash my game really quick, I figure it's no use to try this map on single player, as even if I pick the race bringing the trouble, another AI player can do the same.

Thus I rate lowest (1) for being unplayable at this point in time.

Balance 2:
I give this a bit below than middle rating, as the map seems big enough that we will mostly trouble ourselves with independents first, but from what I have seen the map is big and open enough that probably every race can be competitive, if they play advantageous.
I cannot rate higher, as I cannot see enough of the map to judge it.

Creativity 2:
I like the different starting situations, especially the human flavor impresses me. Alas, as I can't play enough turns, I can only say this is better than really bad, and only a small part of your creativity shows in the first few turns.

Map Design 3:
This one seems to meet my taste, and I am quite sure I'd like it to 3 points or even more if I could start exploring.

Story/Instructions 1:
Well, besides the intial message why the factions are where they are and what they are doing during the beginning of the scenario, I haven't found any stoy/instructions in my few turns.
