    [Role Playing Game] Thoughts on Quest Markers

    It's unfortunately necessary to have handholding indicators like that in multiplayer games. People don't have much patience when they're trying to keep pace with other players. I would only do without indicators if it was a single player map or campaign where immersion is more important, and...

    [Altered Melee] Need ideas for Orc Hero abilities

    Sundering Wave: Launches a rippling force of destruction which deals more damage to enemies the closer they are to the center of the wave. Crushing Blow: Deals damage, stuns for 1 second and temporarily reduces armor of a targeted enemy at melee range. Warband Aura: Provides bonus damage to...

    Mini Mapping Contest #18 - Results

    Congratulations, Ungoliath! I loved the concept of your combat system, the eerily immersive environment, and the overall polish was impressive for these contests. And thanks to the judges. Very good feedback, and I'll go nerf the sea witch immediately :prazz:

    The Legend of Ergl 1.1

    @Serenity09 Thanks, and I agree that a sliding area would be fun. It would also work well with the new movement system I'm working on. As fun as a bullet hell could be in multiplayer, I doubt the game's engine would be able to handle too many extra projectiles flying around. Maybe if I change...

    Name our TD!

    Theming your towers after the seasons would make it unique and fitting for the name Seasons TD. The scorching heat of summer, budding nature for spring (like entangling roots or treants), autumn with gusts of wind or decay, etc. But if go with the basic elements route... Elemental Fury TD...

    Mini Mapping Contest #18 - Poll

    @Mayday Ambient lighting and the user interface seem to work differently in 1.32. It heavily affects how my map is displayed and runs. If it is played in 1.32, it will probably only work when hosted through LAN. If anyone doesn't already have version 1.31, it could be good to have around to...

    Please make sure The Legend of Ergl is played in 1.31. It's not very compatible with the latest version of Warcraft 3.

    The Legend of Ergl 1.1

    @Otherknownoise Interesting idea to let it auto cast. It might not be needed after I redo movement to be tighter and more responsive through triggered movement, but I'll experiment with it. That death skip bug should be an easy fix with more checkpoints added. Thanks!

    The Legend of Ergl 1.1

    @Blasterixx Thank you for the feedback. I will definitely adjust the text colors for different characters and narration. The delay is something I was worried about being an issue, because the unit isn't being directly controlled by the player. I'll see what I can do to make it feel more...

    The Legend of Ergl 1.1 (Map)

    Entry for the 18th Mini Mapping Contest: Dungeon This map only functions properly in 1.31. It can be played in 1.32+, but it will not display properly. Description Ergl is a lazy murloc who must earn his way back into his tribe. But in the process of searching for an artifact, he enters an...

    @Mythic No, I wasn't going to post the map in the map section until I got the crash fixed. Still trying to resolve it. I'll post whatever I have before midnight PST. Edit: Posted it.

    Mini-Mapping Contest #18 - Dungeon

    I recently came across a game crash that I can't fix. I'm still trying, but I feel like I've tried everything. Everything else works, but the game crashes after a cinematic in the void crystal room after defeating the dragon turtle in case anyone wants to give it a test. The map is only playable...

    Camera bugs with 1.31 have been keeping me from already posting it, but they're fairly minor (just annoying!). I'll have mine up in time as well.

    Mini-Mapping Contest #18 - Dungeon

    Looks very interesting! Reminds me of Dark Souls a bit with the flame intro and intricate combat. With how intense the combat is, it seems like paying attention to your tutorial is going to be a good idea :prazz: Yeah, I recently learned how helpful it is to make videos of gameplay whether...

    The traitors map

    It just seems like a single player melee map at the moment. Things you can include... - A cinematic and dialogue between characters to describe what's going on. - Custom units with special abilities would spice up the gameplay. - Maybe add more cliffs with ramps and using the raise/lower tools...

    FPS Kael

    Such a unique model for Warcraft 3. Seems like a fun challenge to make use of it... Awesome job on the smooth, yet powerful animations. It feels like I'm a blood mage just looking at them!

    Do you keep your modding hobby a secret?

    I used to play Warcraft 3 with friends from school around the time TFT came out. I was very talkative about the game and the maps I would make back then. But as the game aged, it became more of a closet hobby for me whenever I need to create something.

    Mini-Mapping Contest #18 - Dungeon

    This is my first WIP playing around with the newer mouse mechanics in a combat test map. I'm working on unique abilities for each enemy, and I'm adding multiple projectiles fired at a time to have more complex enemies instead of spamming them like in the video. This is at least the general idea...

    Captain Statue

    Although it's useful to have statues that fit Warcraft 3 units well, you really don't need a custom texture for that kind of effect. I suggest putting a blend layer over the in-game footman texture with an in-game stone or earthy texture. And the pedestal is a bit too blurry, since it can't be...

    I feel like it's likely your movement system. I got crashes from one with its pathing, possibly multiple objects being in the exact same spot at the exact same time (without locust) and not having enough space or time to displace each other. Maybe turn ship impacts/pathing checks off and see if...

    @PROXY Unleash looks like it'll be a ton of fun to use in a swarm of enemies. Your hero really embodies the name and theme of your Stormheart model. @Ungoliath Nice cartoony aesthetic. That shot kind of reminds me of cel shaded action games/cartoons. Good luck converting the environment!

    Faerie Dragon and Derivatives

    The ancient is very interesting, and the snap dragon turned out a lot better than I would have pictured it. What about something like a baby wyvern? The curled tail would give it a little dose of cuteness.

    Yeah, 1.31 seems like the best choice if I can get it working properly. Thanks. Thank you! It feels good being back and seeing the great ideas that come out of these contests. I think I'll be sticking to a simple and more traditional gameplay map this time around. I have my training wheels...

    Mini-Mapping Contest #18 - Dungeon

    I've been out of the loop for a while now. Is it fine to use any Warcraft III patch for these contests? Were any patches too buggy or unplayed and shouldn't be used? The last one I updated to was 1.30, and I never got Reforged.

    @Abovegame I based the concept on Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive, a game very obviously inspired by Commandos. So I guess the gameplay will feel similar.

    Mini-Mapping Contest #14 - Stealth

    @pick-a-chew Thanks, and I made most of it in the first couple weeks of the contest (used to contests being a month long). I spent a lot of free time since then fixing my rushed and horribly inefficient triggering :prazz: Do we have any judges yet?

    @AditTechno Whenever I start losing motivation, I watch or play whatever type of thing got me inspired in the first place. If that doesn't work, then it's probably better to bail on that idea. Thankfully we still have a whole month left to whip something up. That's about as long as most of the...
