I just completed a major milestone: All gameplay for Chapter 8 (Siege of Durnholde) and the entire campaign is now finished. Only thing left now are some cinematics and terrain for Chapters 7 and 8. I will merge the Epilogue map and Chapter 8, as there is no reason to split them (there is no...
I'm curious to see how the community is going to receive this; will it become the new standard or wil it be neglected? Especially when it comes to custom campaigns... If it can really support w3n one day; I hope we don't have to mess with the w3n files, just in case Blizzard is going to...
I would understand why people keep failing to recreate it. I've been trying to write outlines and scripts for a WotA campaign the past weeks and I keep rewriting stuff because nothing feel quite right. I would love to have three separate campaigns, each with its own heroes and gameplay...
Some tips for puzzles:
The lesson I learned with TLG Version 2 is to come up with interesting puzzles first and then build the levels around them. The levels do not look much like Karazhan/Stormwind, but they are decently filled with gameplay, each area serving its purpose and not so much...
Gameplay 100% complete
Terrain 90% complete
Cinematics 20% complete
Skipping Chapter 7 for now to work on the final Chapter!
I've decided that the old Chapter 7 (the MOBA map) doesn't fit well with the layout of my existing Durnholde. It needs more space for the armies. So I went...
Too bad about the Orcs and Humand remake... I would like to make Reforged versions of my campaigns, but transferring object data from campaigns to maps is not easy. I would have to replace every single unit/item/doodad/etc on the map and in the triggers.
I will probably wait for proper custom...
Hello. Thanks for your report.
- Missing music seems to be related to that WC3 version.
- Rain of Arrows lag. I will look into it, but I guess I will not change it. I did not create that spell originally and I think I would only mess it up.
- The missing map is the alternate epilogue. You should...
I've been spending this month implementing the new ability UI into all existing maps and polishing them. Here are screenshots of the new areas for the elements quests in Chapter 6 (Path of the Shaman). Can you guess which is which?^^
After this first poloshing phase I have two more...
My campaign updates (lord of the clans, day of the dragon, the last guardian) are for 1.31.1 and will likely remain like that for the foreseeable future. Making them for 1.32 would require some work I will probably not put in until end of 2021/2022.
Edit: for the long-term future, whether or...
Status of Lord of the Clans 3.0 (General Features) https://outsiderxe.blogspot.com/2021/02/status-of-lord-of-clans-30-general.html or this http://classic.battle.net/mod/tutorials/TransitionsTutorial.xml
Making a new UI for the abilities and upgrades.
The current (my 3.0) user experience is quite cumbersome. If you want to upgrade and use a new ability you have to:
1. Select your Backpack
2. Build an Anvil
3. Select the Anvil
4. Press the ability you want to upgrade
5. Select the Fire Pit
I just tried with and without save/load and multiple scenarios of talking to Duck. No luck in reproducing your problem. Although I only used cheats to get to that area and did not play through the entire content before that (which might have caused the problem but highly unlikely). Did you talk...
Hmm I have not confirmed this for this particular case but saving and loading may cause bugs. You could try to restart the level and play through without loading. Shouldnt take that long since you know what to do and can skip most dialogue.
(another week later): Chapter 6 is now around 80% finished. just one more mini boss battle, a few cinematics, terrain and a lot of polishing to do. Polishing will be done after all maps are finished. Below you can see a screenshot of the map (terrain barely started):
- Map size is increased...
I will have a look at it in a few hours then. The most recent version on Hive is newer than youtube videos. Maybe there is a bug now.
Did you save/load this map before attempting to get in?
What wc3 version are you playing?
Trying to work with this model now but likely I revert back to the old one - simply because I need the camera to zoom in on his face for a final farewell. Unless maybe someone else got some other idea.
edit: I don't really need any complicated animation. Just him lying on his back would be...
I see my last proper progress update for 3.0 is almost 3 months old. As progress went faster than expected, I took a break to play some games^^ I don't have much new information:
Chapter 6 is about 25% completed; estimated to be feature complete by the end of the month.
I also finished a first...
I would like to point out that during that time, even the Frostwolf shamans had embraced warlock magic, especially Drek'Thar, until the entire clan was exiled from the Horde. See Rise of the Horde and Lord of the Clans for reference. (Drek'Thar)
Thanks for the feedback. I have not encountered this bug but I will look into it for the next update. Which version of WC3 did you play on?
The campaign has 15 maps: 10 playable chapters and 5 cinematic maps (Prologue, Epilogue, Alternate Epilogue and two Interludes (new one with Alexstrasza and...
Only added a patreon link to the description.
Update 3.0 is planned for Summer 2021.
Still many things to do:
- finish some content for chapter 3
- add many new quests for chapter 6
- create completely new map for chapter 7
- remake the old The Horde Awakens map for chapter 8
- do balancing...
After many months of distractions (update to my SC2 campaign) I've made some progress on LotC 3.0. I've completed Chapter 4 and the first new Interlude. The interlude shows Thrall and Hellscream discuss the imprisoned orcs and Blackmoore getting news about Thrall.
I've also started redesigning...
If you want to make campaigns regardless of whether CCs are ever going to be re-implemented into Reforged I would say just go for it with 1 31 or below. Making a campaign takes time, so it's possible CCs are back before you finish. You can make your 1.32+ adjustments afterwards.
