Hello there. First time poster, and actually first time site user. I'll try to keep to a single thread depending on if I remain active, to anyone who joins in the discussion after this point bear with me, this is barely half a hobby as I've actual writings to work on and a few sites to maintain.
Sharing of basic/random concepts brought to mind while killing a few hours in what is still one of the best games in the world or from counting dots on my ceiling, whichever.
What I'll just roll my eyes at:
l33t speak, flaming, derailing, and "influenced" replies with no explanation among other common sense things. We're here to discuss, and maybe bring something to life.
I'm aware if I do a bit more digging some of my ideas may already be lurking on here or another modding site, but then again I would most likely have to necro ancient posts.
I'll kick this off with the idea that has plagued me for the last two or three days of map hunting. I'm on a rather sad laptop while waiting on my baby to get repaired, as a result battle.net refuses to patch and I have been forced to fall back to playing single player(yes I know there is a fixer, no it didn't work, no I don't want to mess with it, stay on track =D )
A map I came across on EpicWar.com was both nifty and bothersome. World of Warcraft "Full" Edition. Don't get me wrong, the maker had a great idea, but outside of the profession/fancy scepter that summoned workers/sortamap layout it wasn't. It was fun for a bit though, the heroes sadly were a bit to, warcraft3? Can't really scoop up premade heroes and call it a day's work.
What it got stirring in my head were the following (CTRL F to jump ideas A1for this post)
A1) Using the backpack feature to open up the scepter of worker summoning(For those who don't know at first glance it used a summon mechanic that summoned 2 <insert race you chose to lead as a warlord here> workers to throw up towers or a base etc. -OR- Since one of the game's modes was a "lose on base destruction" mode, make the scepter "unpack" into a contingent of workerbees and a base(or not) to free up that bag space Similar with the Profession book(a feature I rather enjoyed, free potions on demand? Yes please =D)
Keep in mind. I am not an active modder, the most I've ever world edited was a custom hero for the WarChasers map for some soloplay challenge or minor things for games like Morrowind/Oblivion. I have several general rpg concepts lurking around for any developers that would like one. Anyhow that is enough of my rambling for now. Until next time!
