    [Miscellanous / Other] Forsaken Bastion's Fall

    Just in time for the next funmap evening, we've managed to get out a patch. We've fixed several embarrassing and some smaller mistakes that made it rather difficult to play the map properly, so it should be better now. One thing we noticed even in our own tests was the overwhelming number of...

    [Miscellanous / Other] Forsaken Bastion's Fall

    Because hitting people with the lightsaber hilt is more damaging than hitting them with the glowing bit, and punching them in the face even more so.

    I can count. The passive counts twice, because the active version needs to be imported, too, for learning the ability. There's some points of the Trigger judgement I personally would have rated different, but it was not my place to do so. Pred is the guy who actually has to implement the stuff...

    [Role Playing Game] Your Rpg opinions

    Wait, three people play WoW, yet claim to like good lore and dislike grinding? You guys must suffer from a severe lack of perspective. My favourites:Dragon Age: Origins, Star Wars: The Old Republic among MMOS and Vampires Dawn II in the old 8-bit style. What makes it great: Easy to learn...

    Unlikely, at least not for our map. We've got enough work cut out for us with the Beta and need to get our current balance right before we can add yet another hero. However, it might be a good idea for other map projects to host a contest like we did, but of course I can't give any predictions...

    We were talking about the Words: More Words ability names, not the hero name. Although I have noticed that the name means something in German.

    [Miscellanous / Other] Forsaken Bastion's Fall

    Forsaken: Bastion's Fall First Beta starts today! After a small hiccup of the hostbots the last days, we are still on schedule and proud to announce that our map is now being hosted for the beta. Currently, there is one bot available, but we will bring four more online soon, for a total of three...

    That sort of depends what you want to talk about. I think it's simplest to just post it here and the right judge will answer.

    So you just merged the succubus model with demon hunter pants and reskinned her chest to use the blood mage texture? It might be a good idea to give her more armor, but this is done badly. First, you have the same problem as every succubus geomerge: The middle-most wing bones don't get their own...

    [Strategy / Risk] Idea for a strategy map! tell me what you think.

    If you add food, you should spend some time thinking about logistics as well. Otherwise, the besieging faction gets an advantage. In reality, a considerable amount of sieges was lost because of lack of food - on the attacking side. An army camping in front of a castle needs a lot of food, and...

    Missile model

    Here is one, simple edit of the Rexxar missile. Based on the Tinker wrench.

    Shadow Image Blink v1.4

    You have the small problem of the missile not going correctly from the starting point to the point where the caster appears. One solution would be to adjust the speed of the missile to make it go at the right speed. The other, which I think is computationally much less costly, is to go from the...

    Circle Buffs

    You could've checked the model details. 10 Polygons aren't one particle system. I'm not sure which version would be better in terms of size and processing power, but it was easier to make for me this way.

    Circle Buffs (Model)

    This is a simple effect model. The Screenshot cannot show the animation, check the model in a previewer before commenting. I had an idea few days ago, while playing Torchlight II, to create a series of very simple and generic Buff effects for all those situations where one needs an buff...

    Hopefully. So far, what judgement I received met my expectations, if it is to your liking, we'll most likely see next week.
  19. AlienAtSystem


    Looks nice, but this could have been done with a skin. Make your own animations instead of simply using the pulsing effect of the Vampric Aura and I'd call it approvable.

    Well, that's not what I meant when I said that, or at least when i said what Chaosy misremembered like that. The original question in question had indeed been about whether to judge heroes as-is or judge them based on how far we'd need to change them to fit. I argued against it, on the basis...

    I don't know what I expected in the Explanations. What I hoped for was that they'd be used for everything not fitting into the other parts of the template, like: Little details about the spells that don't really fit in the tooltip and would blow up the effects tab. Your reasoning behind the hero...

    Happy new year, everyone. I'd like to remind you that our contest is now in the final week. Time to put the final polish to all abilities. Some points to consider: Proper Affiliation and Race. For all too lazy to check our main thread, the undead faction is named Forsaken, and the opposing...

    Custom spell level up?

    Here's the relevant quote from the Warcraft Ability Guide:
  27. AlienAtSystem


    Looks nice, if somewhat simple. The stone texture is stretched in places, which destroys the appearance a bit. Try to find a texture with more bricks for the main house walls, and use less of the texture space for the smaller parts, like the belfry.

    I'd like to remind everyone to read at least the pieces of lore in the Main Thread and look through the Hero Database on the website. Having good concepts fail in the Lore and Uniqueness categories would be sad for all of us. Concerning re-use of Icons: We will not judge similarities between...

    Billboarding is possible with Magos or Notepad, if there is a separate bone for the glow. If they're attached to Bone_Root or something similar, then you'd billboard the entire model.

    Emp (Model)

    A simple effect representing an electromagnetic pulse (or at least how an EMP is usually portrayed in games). It consists of a short impact flash, followed by an expanding blue spherical shockwave, with lightning arcing from the origin to the surface. The Sphere dissipates over half a second...

    The raw code is ACnr, to be found under Neutral Hostile/Units. It uses team color for the attachment, unlike for example Sphere or Spiked Barricades.

    Planet Venus

    Nice model, but I've got to nitpick: You're using Venus' surface as texture, but from space, all one can see is the opaque clouds.

    We're using blp. There is a limit of 8 Mb for a map to be downloadable via Battlenet. Anything larger than that would have to be downloaded externally before it can be played. We've been skirting dangerously close to that limit once with FBF, before I applied the pruning shears to everything...

    Obviously, the points are counted downwards. So, less than 20% of the maximum is 5/5 points, less than 40% would be 4/5, and so on. We're not endorsing high file sizes.

    Shorthand for "I'm going to add up all File sizes and compare to a set upper limit, giving points based on the ratio." That upper limit will be around 200 kb, but it might vary depending on how large the 'average' submission for the contest is. As there is no subjective component involved in...

    FBF doesn't use Warcraft lore, so that question isn't applicable. Check our thread in Map Development for a short version of the story and what defines our Undead.

    If you're sure it's their own work, which from the look of the icons would guess it isn't, seems more like WoW rips to me (which you are allowed to use). Try to track down their original source.

    Nice to see the suggestions coming in. I think I'll explicitly state a rule I thought implicit: Please don't use ressources you can't accurately give credit for. We won't disqualify if you don't, but it's more work to search for icons that we can use. If anyone has any concerns about the rules...

    Demon Hunter model/skin request
