(1)Jungle Wars

Submitted by micromonkey
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Fight as 1 of 9 distinct factions and wage war, one on one over two continents. Purchase super items for your heroes, play as new factions, utilize aerial transportation, sail the seas and combat your opponent any way you want.

How to play: When game starts, move your wisp to the Blue Beacons to learn more about your race, move to the Red beacons to start.

New Factions! Blood Elves, Naga, Draenei, Satyrs, and the Burning Legion.
(Belfs, Draenei and Burning Legion were made from scratch!)

Each new race has its own strengths and weaknesses, exploit them to destroy them!

Guide:

Blood Elves
Strengths:
Powerful Spellcasters, powerful ranged units, quick striking melee units, insanely powerful heroes
Weaknesses: Low health, susceptible to mana destroying attacks

Naga
Strengths:
Nearly unstoppable naga royal guard units, tactical advantage: all units are amphibious
Weaknesses: High unit cost

Burning Legion
Strengths: Heavy hitting demonic units, powerful Marauder unit
Weaknesses: Demon units and be quickly killed by anti-summoned unit abilities

Satyr
Strengths: Powerful and long lasting poison attacks, invisible units, and the Corruption ability
Weaknesses: EXTREMELY low health

Draenei
Balanced: The Draenei are easy play as, since most of their units are cheap and mass producible. The n00b faction.

BUGS:
* Night Elf Archdruid cannot morph properly, use at risk
If anyone finds any other bugs, please report it to me with a Private Message.
Title it Jungle Wars Bugs

The old default races have been revamped or can now train new units and heroes.

Thanks for making ultra sick models, icons and music!

WARNING: This is a HUGE map file
This map took me 4 months to make haha
I've tested the map so all the imported models, units, abilities, and icons are guaranteed to work. Except for the Archdruid I mentioned.

Fixed Stuff:
* Deleted extra wisp
* Lowered file size to 6.71MB
* Changed Loading Screen Size
* Deleted unused imports
* Removed music, but message me so I can give a link to download the full version including incredible background music.

Announcements
Crimson Ice is almost coming out in two weeks.
It shares all the features and units as Jungle Wars, including one new faction:
Azure Dragonflight.
If you thought this map was cool, wait for Crimson Ice. And then, after that Unfair Advantage will be released afterwards lol, but that won't be anytime soon.

Keywords:
War of the races, factions, blood elves, naga, draenei, night elves, humans, satyrs, orcs, demons, burning legion, undead, forsaken, Chuck Norris

    Maybe i should upload a offline version. I think the disabling triggers thingy might be too confusing.

    44mb Wow. Seems like a cool map, but its just way too large (filesize). I'm guessing you have tons of imports, so you can get rid of most of them (starting with music, as thats the lowest (and the largest sized) on making a map good).

    Uhh, can't you just detect whether the game is being played online or offline and then turn off the triggers required for online play? (If you need the trigger for that, say so).
    Also, remove the music!
    Adding music in a game is one of the worst things you can do... it increases the file size while not everyone likes the music...

    I'm going to reject your offline version and reject this one until you update it.

    Use the "update"-button on this map when you're ready (that means it supports both offline and online and is at least 36-37MB smaller)

    Edit: your loading screen is 5.5MB... that's huge.
    My loading screens are always around 200kB (512x512, .blp), that's about 5.3MB less.
    I suggest you do the same.

    yeah I was going to add a TUTORIAL on the map description to allow offline play. But right now I need to figure out which uneeded imports I can delete. And okay i guess ill remove the music, but the soundtrack is amazing! just listen to the whole thing. Ill have this figured out by friday

    Oh and yes, i've been testing this since the day i made the map. Starting with each race, i fixed all the bugs except for the Archdruid thing. But right now im going to focus on cleaning up the imports i don't need. But i do like the soundtrack so ill work around that. Can anyone also show me how to decrease the file size of my Loading Screen? I followed instructions at a worldeditortutorials.com and i made the picture 512X512. I don't know how to do that.

    Okay here are my questions:
    How do I lower the Loading Screen size?
    Oh and ap0calypse can you tell me that trigger I can use?

    UPDATE!
    I got the file size down to 6.71MB! YAAAAAY!

    DAMN! I downloaded the older version with music before you updated it! Well, anyways, the map itself is nice (I've tested with Orcs). The music is a little annoying. Also, on the race-choosing place, I've already have a Wisp (BTW I'm using random) before selecting the Orcs. Well, my vote will still be:

    ON HOLD

    ...I didn't reject it.
    I don't test maps by the way, so I don't know if it's approvable or not, I let other people decide that.

    And what do I need to reply?
