March 2012 News Batch


News Batch content by Vengeancekael.
Opening...
by Vengeancekael (Map Moderator)

Greetings, people!


In this March News Batch, we bring the latest news of our hosted projects, the top maps to check out and updates on the contests!


Sadly we couldn't do anything official for April Fools' day, because we weren't creative enough.


Oh well forget it, here you go:

Ralle is happy to announce the arrival of Hive v2 next week!
Hive v2 will feature an improved user interface, a better Starcraft II section and less vBulletin restrictions!

However, Pyritie has also worked on the new version, adding a Ponyville section, with its own forums and resource section!

Be advised that the hive will be going down for about a week.


Also, a new part has been added to the news batch, the Hive Quiz! Answer as many hive-related questions as you can to earn rep.



Index


Top+

Each batch will feature the highest rated and most popular maps published in the Maps Section!


The data was gathered on the 2nd of April.


(1.03) Diablo III PvP Arena - Booody

Booody has once again recreated a part of Diablo III, this time the Arena, featuring all the classes with multiple spells!
It was recently updated, bringing us new music and improved gameplay.

(1.31) Defense of Uthragon - Tranquil

One of the best castle defense maps out there, this sequel (to Fortress Siege) features a whole new castle and more fast paced action, with hundreds of attackers climbing over the walls! Even though the spells seem simple, they're actually very fun to use.
The new version features a new hero and a new event!


(1.9) Edge of Extinction - johannesr

EoE is a rather average single player RPG, with not a lot of advanced systems, but it still features a long storyline and a hero with some neat spells. It may be fun for some people.
The newest version has fixed a lot of bugs.


(1.0) Most Wanted - meatfactory

The map actually is kind of original, where your role is to harm the population of a village and defeat the other players while doing so.
Most Wanted has a class with a lot useful skills, no random flashy ones!


(Public Beta 4) Oasis and Desert 2 - bowser499

An AoS that's not like the other ones you've seen so far, which features advanced spell crafting, a beautiful terrain and mini-bosses all over the map!
The hosted project is currently in Beta and is being updated every week.





Skin Spotlight

Undead UI - Kwaliti


A UI made for the texturing contest #18, which Kwaliti has actually won with his entry. Very useful for snow-themed maps! It has not only received a lot of praise from the moderator, but also from the community.



Spells Spotlight
(2.1.0.0) GUI SpellEvent - Magtheridon96


"This resource provides GUIers with the ability to benefit from something like SpellEffectEvent by Bribe.
What it does is use only one trigger to evaluate one spell trigger rather than a thousand.
I coded it in GUI-Jass, so it doesn't require JNGP."


(1.01) Explosive Toxic Gas - Tit-Cmdr

"Toxic Gas:
Spews Gas onto the target area and spreads out randomly from the target point which poisons Organic units and rusts Mechanicals, dealing damage every second, if the gas is ignited it will explode dealing extra damage and setting nearby units on fire.
Volanic Rock:
Throws a volcanic rock at the target area dealing damage and setting nearby units on fire dealing damage over a short time also ignites toxic gas."


(1.02) Chaos Portal - Tit-Cmdr

"Creates a portal at the target point which will trap nearby units within it's effect radius and push and pull them around the cage tearing them apart dealing damage and repelling units trying to enter the cage away from it."



(1.2c) Kinetic Orb - Jay The Editor

"Storm sends an orb filled with high magnetic energy towards the target point. When the orb lands at the target point, all nearby enemies around the orb will receive damage. The orb will then seek for the nearest hero within a certain limit of range of radius and pull the hero to the position of the orb over time, burning away the mana of the target over time."


(1.2b) Lightning Grappler - Jay The Editor

"Storm releases a highly charged energy orb to a target point, dealing 50/100/150 damage to all enemy that the orb comes across. Upon impact, all enemies around the orb will receive 120/240/360 damage and slow by 50% for 3 seconds. The electromotive energy in the orb continues to increase after impact as time passes. After a short duration, due to the potential difference between Storm and the orb, Storm himself will be pulled in acceleration towards the position of the orb, pulling up to 2/3/4 enemies along."

From now on, icons from different authors will be featured here! The data was gathered on the 3rd of April.

The Great Oasis is a place where you would see many lifebringing and justiceful forces. That sides were in the unstoppable war.
One day the creature has came to that world. It called himself the Balance Dominator. It was very powerful. And to stop the bloody war between the Desert and Oasis Gods it locked them into two spheres. It sayed that after the Three Worlds will be formed, a man will come in that place and continue the Epic War.
The Dominator is in another world now. No one saw it. No one heard it.

I would say as Magthe : 41, for the 8.

For the 1., simply you (VengeanceKael) and you uploaded it on pastebin the 7th february of this year : http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/p....php?id=ow5xxr
But i haven't find the original thread so... and i saw nothing on the pastebin ^^

For the 3., random answer : Aeroblyctos (it's like the bingo, 1chance on many)

Edit :

For the 1. it was Rui (sry but i can't write is actual pseudo ^^), the 24th December 2008, for Noël =D

The answer 41 is not correct. (FINE A HINT= Some DC models don't show up when you click "Director's Cut" filter only)
And for 1., clever guess, but no :P
The first one is a lot older.
And no, there is no original thread for that one, the October and November ones never were published.

3., false.

Sorry vengeancekael, my post was sent without intention of doing it so that's why I deleted it. I hoped none read it if I did it fast :P

Anyway; if my answer is still valid; 45.

I went through 30 pages of Models so far to count them so far ;_;
I was going to guess 45, but I didn't know if I was allowed to :/

@Lightskin, correct.

@Mag, yeah I know, Don pointed out that people could easily guess the amount, so I extended the question :P

1. I'm guessing its with Bob27 or Archian, I'll be going for Archian (I don't know why, I think its because he created the logo/titles for Rui's news batches back then). Around 2007 lol.
3. Sverkerman
6. Warcraft III Paranoia by Grevious1

Description (copy and pasted from their page):

"WarCraft III Paranoia" - is a singleplayer & multiplayer modification for Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne. You will play the role of a russian officer of the secret service. There will be many missions, each with specific objectives for the players to accomplish, such as defending a restricted military area, eliminating a terrorist threat and protecting innocent scientists. Your first impressions are that this mission will be just like any other, but you really have no idea what nightmares future events have in store for you...

My Description:

A birds-eye view horror shooter map for Warcraft 3 about some special ops who are Russian that are sent into some unknown "laboratory" filled with zombies, insurgents, and scientists.

1. I think it's Rui. Back in 2008?

3. Sverkerman. Maybe cause he titles all his map threads with Director's Cut [project name]

6. (Description: A tactical horror FPS game made by Grevious1 where players take on the role of a russian officer in liege with the secret service.)
