      Can you hear the call of 1.29? "Retuuuuuurrrrrnnnn, reeeetuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrnnnnn"

        Haha :D
        It is an awesome update indeed, but some natives that I was hoping for aren't in it.

        I am sure you will find a way to add some more Zelda-style gamplay. Just use a bit... magic!

      Heya!
      Sorry that I kinda abandoned my recording of Warden; my recording computer died and I couldn't download the software I had used on my Windows XP SP3.
      If you want, I can start recording it again, though I don't know if you've released anything new on the project.
      Umm... Sorry about the spam there..
      My new PC apparently disagrees with the site and is laggy as hell.
      1. Rufus
        Rufus
        No worries! I'm just grateful you did those recordnings in the first place! :)

        Well, the entire project is kind of on ice right now. I make little progress from time to time, but I don't finish stuff. It will come eventually. But right now, no new content.

        Alright!
        Just poke me on here (or on discord if you have it, I'm Lasersquid112#8047) when there's new content that you'd like me to record!
        And don't be grateful; I love recording amazing things like the Warden project! I'm grateful you let me do it!

      Hey @Rufus Could you do me the honors at checking out my current map: Creep Wars? I've been doing some work on it, and I was wondering if you could give me some of your feedback, I've been adding in more shops and more creeps, and I got a mirror to work, Just wish I could have you check it out for me, I would appreciate it a lot.

        Hi man!
        I won't right now, since I'm not playing a lot of wc3 at the moment, but I'm getting started again, so I might in a while! :)

        One thing I can say though, is that your description is informative and structurized, but it lacks some visual appeal. You could add some bigger titles, a small quote to describe the game, and perhaps hide the changelog and credits tabs a bit more.

      What do you think Naisha could have as a first spell ?
      1. Rufus
        Rufus
        Definetely something about her glaive.
        Boomerangish, so she throw it in a line, and then it returns to her.

        Or maybe, she throws it out, going at a constant rate forward. Then, when Naisha clicks an enemy, the glaive goes toward that enemy.

        Yes, something like Moon glaive, and Similar to Chain of lighting, but I do not know what to do about this ... I tried to start with wand of negation, if does not do damage. So how ?

        Hve no time to test now, but none of those abilities will do, I think.
        Maybe craete a dummy unit with bouncing attack?

        Not too hard and time taking, but still fun. I guess some mates would like to participate in something like that, but I don't know how it must be organized.

      You should make your title "Former Map and Arena Mod" these days, I feel like.
      1. Rufus
        Rufus
        Nah, I was arena moderator for such a short time, and it is in maps I really changed a lot. Therefore I take more pride in having been a map moderator than arena moderator. :D

        Well, what also happened was that I founded the Grand Review Exchange, and thus got a lot of people seeing my signature, and exchanging reviews with me.

        Also, I was a map moderator, which casued me to post A LOT on other peopls resources, thus making people see who I am. :)

        I spent last 2 days trying to find out how Warden works by looking your old thread (only found one old Warden alpha release), then it turned out that your map is not protected and I can learn from it directly 0.0

      Rufus why did you resign as a moderator? Was fun having you around...
      Anyway i wish you all the best for the future.
      1. Rufus
        Rufus
        Wow, you were quick to notice! :D
        Well, I have so many other things to focus on now, so I have not been prioritizing the Hive or Warcraft at all lately, so I thought it would be better to leave the position in some one elses more capable hands. :)

        I'll still be around to help anyone who asks for it though! :)

        Hard to say.
        A map moderator always open tha map anyway (unless it is obviously unapprovable), and then they can note the creativity themselves.

        However, a good description, telling the player about teh maps creative elements, can help the moderator notice those things. :)

        hmm ok how about if I showed you a print out exactly like this...what elements are missing from these descriptions:

        total custom objects 2750
        custom units: 39
        custom items: 41
        custom abilities: 600
        custom buffs:340
        custom doodads: 3
        custom upgrades: 4
        custom destructibles: 3

        percentage of flat land detected: 30%

        swear words detected: 0
        imported files used: 32 of 32 files used

        number of doodads loaded with map: 43
        number of units/buildings loaded with map: 5
        estimated loading time of map: 44.3 seconds

        Hmm, this tells me nothing about how creative the map is, but there sure is a lot of effort put into it!

        Try creating a good-looking description in bb code rather than listing it all like this, and it will look more attractive.

    Hi! My name is Rufus Lindskog.
    I'm the guy on the right.

    [​IMG]

    In Reality
    My real-life profession is to be a street-entertainer. I set up shows with
    magic, juggling and comedy, trying to create a good atmosphere and
    make people have a good time, to ultimately make them put golden
    coins in my humbly outstretched hat.

    Sweden, where I live, is a bad place for street-performing though, as the
    people generally isn't used to performers. It is not in our culture.
    Thyerefore, I travel around the world, putting up shows in places I visit.
    On the time I am writing this, I have performed in 16 countries and
    24 citys.

    If you want to know more about me as a performer, you can check out
    the links below.

    On the Hive
    In the warcraft community, I try to contibute with useful feedback and
    encouraing comments, which has made me a map reviewer. I try to stay
    friendly at all times, and keep my head cold during debates, to avoid
    ending up just insulting each other, instead of actually getting a
    good solution.

    I also like to create and market my own projects, my latest being
    the Warden campaign.
    The warden project have been a lot of fun as it has a really wide variety
    of concepts put together. I'm pretty satisfied with what I have created so
    far, and I have a lot of ideas for upcoming maps. My main struggle is
    putting them together in a nice way.
