I've learned a lot from the Hive. Now, it's time to put it to good use and make something people will have a lot of fun with. Apr 15, 2017

      I found 'Baker Terbakar' in Economy list, it's quite a unique name. Is that intentional? :)

        I'll be in Surabaya until Monday. Any thoughts on the direction of my project?

        I am curious of the quest system actually, so I want to wait for that to flesh out. If you have extra time to develop or can get a coder, you can add AI to allows solo living people like me to play (though I might be able to get a party once I go back to uni).

        Ya, I plan to add AI once I make the bandit techtree. Computer players will just start off that way with their heroes, and act accordingly

      Hey Wark,

      I was browsing around the web and thought about FOTN and wanted to see if people were still playing it. I saw you're trying to make a game inspired by it, but are having trouble terraining. I have done some terraining (even came in third in one of the terraining contests), and I'd love to help you with it. I lost my previous account info so I just made a new one. Let me know if you want my help!

        Ah right, well there's no way to make that look less artificial, but perhaps an option would be to not allow flying units in dungeons (since it wouldn't make sense anyway).

        Back on topic, I'm going to try using the "hero glow" model as a doodad with no tinting, and the dummy units with a shadow. I'll see what does a better job for underground shadowing.
        I appreciate the offer for terrain, but I finally sat down and planned the layout for the towns and dungeons.
        What I would like is an opinion on how things look after it's finished, specifically for base locations and open areas. Give me a week or two, and I'll have my map fully terrained. Deal?

        Absolutely, I'm sure it'll look great with the amount of detail you're already putting in.

        Ah, I see. It's good to see you're setting it also in the Warcraft universe!
        I too am making it somewhat of an alternate universe, but based off the Warcraft lore, and focused on Orcs.
        I like the Orcs, so I didn't shy on making them strong warriors if you choose them as a race. How long have you been working on it? I haven't even started on terraining my map yet.
        Speaking of which, I am mediocre at terraining, but good with unit data and triggers. Need help with yours?

        We are opposites i see because i have been learning terrainng for a few years and yet ignoring triggers which make custom games lovable but my map does have a few triggers like chicken generate income and wild animal spawn.
        It is very hard to mimic Founders of the North's animal spawn i tried anyway.

        I found a way to do that, and to make something like wolves or bears migrate if they are targeted. The method I use mostly uses unit indexing and custom values for the "Animals". My terraining is OK. Not good, but not terrible. I tend to use a lot of random brush strokes to fill space, which can be noticeable.

        Alright. Well, good luck with your exams! I've been thinking about going back to school to get my master's degree sometime. Can't become a professor without it

        Yes it is because I didn't find any new mistakes. The spell revieweres just need a good explaination for triggers. So new changes may be connected with the trigger descriptions. Anyway the triggers for this spell were made to be easily imported into any map.

        Alright. Anyways, the Bear Grasp ability has some weird graphical glitch when you go up hills. To me, it seems to raise the "z" value of the unit exponentially as you go uphill (z^2). Maybe you could offset that with a hyperbolic (1/z^2) equation?

        Right now I am working on the unit data, triggered spells and techtrees. I haven't even started on the map's terrain yet. It's taking a loooong time, 2 months sunk into it so far.

        I've seen worse. Besides, I'm just getting started here. What's the best way to honor people who put all that effort into making icons and models? Use them in an equally unique map. I just need a name for my new project...

        You're welcome! I'm a former map reviewer that makes sure that people feel welcome and that everyone has a happy birthday. I guess I missed you when you joined, so welcome to the Hive!

        I simply like making maps and was introduced to the Hive network recently by a friend. I can appreciate the work members put into the models and icons, it inspired me to finish one of my projects.

        Awesome! The Hive has so many ridiculously cool people. Glad that they inspired you; they inspired me too! I ended up spending more than thirty hours making a map because I didn't want to be a non-contributor on the Hive, but the map ended up being bad and I didn't publish it. After that experience, I had all the more respect for our content creators!

      I've signed up on Hive since I have a map I've been working on for years. I want to see what people think of it.
