      Hey Wark, I'm a big fan of your map Northrend Bound. One thing I've noticed from hosting and playing it a lot is the Adventurer/Hero route that can be taken by building a Guild Hall is very hard to win with. Defeating a boss or calamity even with high level heroes and tier 3 gear is still extremely difficult yet someone with an army has a much easier time doing them. Since heroes struggle against what they're supposed to beat but can still manage to take down someone's army, I think it would be a good idea to add some changes to these hero missions. For example, heroes take _% less damage from bosses and non-hero units take _% increased damage from bosses.

        Do you have any plans to make changes like that?

        You know, I can add that, and a "no flying unit" game mode to the map. I know flying units can be an issue sometimes, so that can be an option. I also may change bandits to be unable to take over towns. You are right, the hero techtree is kind of underpowered. To balance it out after also changing the bandit tech, I may just make racial techtrees a little more expensive so they can't build up as fast (like, +100 gold/lumber per tech structures or make units slightly more expensive)

        Oh ok nice. What would bandits do if they can't take over towns?

      So what are the plans for the map? Can I help somehow? :)

        The next update will involve the Naga race mostly. It won't be a full race, but they will be unlockable. Other than that, I'll be making certain items more useful, increasing boss health, reducing boss spell damage, and fixing some exploits. I plan to have the update out by the 25th.

        If you want to help, report any bugs you find in that next update!

      I've been trying to figure out how to black out the dungeons for some time while still revealing the whole map.
      --------
      How about use Fog.
      1. Wark
        Wark
        I did use fog actions both in a region and map-wide. It's either I hide the whole map, or reveal it.
        I could see if it works differently now since the new updates.

      Hey Wark, I really love this map, could it be possible that you make other maps that connect to the current one? Like you could use portals from the towns to travel to another map.
      1. Wark
        Wark
        That would be possible for single player, but would be difficult for multiplayer. I could see it work with some kind of save-code system, but that would have to be something extremely elaborate.

        Lately, I haven't done many updates for it since I was obsessed with it for a while, but then got burnt out. I plan to release another major update before New Years this year.

      2nd melee contest poll started, in the link you can (if you wish) download all the maps from the zip file, see them all and rate what do you think are the 5 best maps. If you donĀ“t have competitive melee knoledge, is okay, you can use other criteria like: enviroment, effort, map shape and others. The general public opinion is important to define 20% of the final score https://www.hiveworkshop.com/threads/melee-mapping-contest-2-poll.308814/

        Tedium affords variety, which is why I just went to Malaysia last week. I suggest just doing something - anything - differently.
        If you need to go somewhere, walk instead.
        Or, take an alternate route. It changes your perspective, and makes things new.
        Also, in the words of Sherlock Holmes: observe, don't just look.
        See things, then ask yourself: "why is it like that?"
        Never lose that curiosity. Curiosity dispels boredom and improves intellect. This applies to work, too. Ask your boss, ask your colleagues, "why?"

      All the Northrend Bound are very good tho I must say the fishing is very slow, maybe if you added a auto cast on it to where we have to be in close to the fishing spot. But that is just me I still give the Northrend Bound Thumbs up.
      1. Wark
        Wark
        Yea, fishing's quite click heavy on a hero. But, if I make fishing autocast on a hero, then it'd be like: walk by any fishing spot, be forced to fish. So, that's also what fishing boats are for! They autocast when close to a fishing spot, and also use the achievement bonuses.

        My only resource for models is the Hive so far. I've found cannons, but they don't look intimidating enough. Those you recommended look interesting. I'll have to try them out in game!

        Yea, I know about the town conquering problems, and have made a fix for that in version 1.60. That reputation thing seems to happen randomly, and I am still trying to figure it out. It seems to be from something murdering someone: -50 rep only happens during a murder. I think I'll put an additional check in the murder mechanic to make sure it's bandit AI or a player only.

        I listen to some opinions and think: you know, it makes sense. Others, I ignore because it goes against my game design. Like wives, for example. It doesn't quite fit what I'm going for. My plan is to make something fun with a bit of a back story you learn by interacting with the world, either with armies or just heroes. I like variable play, and my main focus is on balance between playstyles (which is why sometimes I go crazy with rapid balance updates). I don't want to make everything completely balanced, however. I prefer balancing things with imbalance. You'll see what I mean when you try out spies. A player who uses a single spy effectively can completely undermine an enemy player.

        Yes, i agree. I just mean this opinions what don't fit to your conception.

        Once I host NB in Garena, as i see people enjoy your map, some payers also RP'ing own kingdoms. One of them told me what map's template very similar with other project, FoTN, or something like that.

        It is inspired off Founders of the North (FotN), yes. That project is discontinued. I just want to make something from scratch with my own ideas.
