(4)Thundering Peaks (Custom Heroes)

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
(4)Thundering Peaks
by Scias

Map Description:

Nobody is certain if the thundering sounds of this mountain come from the never ending fierce wars between the factions taking place here, or from creatures even more fierce than the war itself, that dwell in these high peaks.

Map Info:
This is a custom 116x116 size 4 players map, recommended for 2v2 or FFA gameplay. Each player starts on a high ground area located on each side of the map, with two paths leading out of the base. One of the paths leads towards a green creep camp and further easy progression rewarded by items, while the other path leads to a early expansion which is really close to the main base. There's 4 Merchant Shops located near each players base, defended by orange creep camps. Middle of the map is a large high ground area which contains 2 goldmines that aren't defended by any creeps, however are very exposed, and 4 orange creep camps in each corner - these creep camps are quite rewarding. Goblin Laboratories are located clockwise near the players starting positions. At each corner of the map there is a small mountain peak or island with a goldmine which is protected by red creep camp. There are two Taverns one on west other on east side of the map, located at mid point between the players starting positions.

Map Features:
  • There are total of 10 custom heroes, two new heroes per each race including neutral, created to fit the original Warcraft 3 content to best of my ability. (more info below)
  • Total 14 Gold Mines with 12500 gold each.
  • Easy early expanding being an option from each starting position.
  • Gold mines in middle heavily exposed but not defended by creeps.
  • Hard to reach gold mines in corners of the map with rewarding item drops from red creeps that guard them.
  • Not overly difficult creeping routes allowing for quick progression.

From Creator of the Map:
This is the second map I made, using the same heroes from my previous map since I wanted to play around with them in a smaller map, and with less players.. To give it a bit of a variety. Hoping there's less issues off the start this time, considering mostly all I had to do to implement these heroes was copy paste work.

Known Bugs (no idea how to fix)
- Corpse Digging doesn't seem to work as intended, should consistently create corpses over time. Suggestion: Don't level it up until you need a corpse.
- Corpse Digging icon doesn't show when researched so I put a placeholder passive for a icon.
- Animation Mecha Gnome does when he consumes a tree while Bouncy Rockets is active
- Somethings wrong with King Shredders selection size.
- King Shredders flight animation continues if the duration of Flight Boots ran out while he was on a terrain which he couldn't land onto.

    I advise to grouping the altered melee together in one thread but of course it is not mandatory. However, if you decide to upload them separately, you need to find a name for your project to put after/before each map name.
    Melee maps can be uploaded in a different thread each, no biggie.

    Thanks,
    Ah I see what you mean, adding the custom maps to one bundle and posting melee separately. This would make the description files easier to make for me and it would just be much better organized. I'll see if I take this project more seriously and feel like making more maps to improve the way I've been uploading them.. And yeah cooler name for the project would be nice in that case, since just adding "(Custom Heroes)" is not very original.

    Been playing this, and I ported all the heroes to a few other maps... very fun stuff, exploring the orc heroes so far. Great stuff!

    Still working on it :) A few icons show green and a few models aren't showing unless I go in and do some edits or figure out something I am missing, but I will send you them once they are done. It is Twisted Meadows, Echo Isles, and another map I forget the name, a city map.

    OK I have two maps that seem to work 100% as far as models, buttons, etc, and I can add it to any empty map (meaning, no object data, for me all the standard melee maps) in two seconds (so far no issues, any could arise!). How should I send to you so you can test? I only played a few times as orcs. Archer orc is great!

    I can't test the maps atm since I'm traveling, I'll be able to in about a week. You can send me the maps through pastebin, send me a message with the link for the pastebin if you don't wanna share publicly. Thanks, I'm looking forward to playing these maps :)

    OK I think like this, I don't mind sharing publicly. One map I made, but I don't need credit for anything ever, and it has like 4 or 5 extra models from the dozens I DLed from these forums, hard to say who made them lol

    I clicked on this hoping to see some new Heroes, but that's probably a lot to ask. xD Good to see you making multiple versions with different maps!

    I mean, it's nice to be able to do so, but it can't be a requirement, right? Coming up with a good "OVERALL PROJECT NAME" can be quite difficult. (I should know, I've been grappling with that one for a while)

    I mean like Kam's doing. That way users will automatically know what the map is about.

    ... Yeah, that's exactly what you said & what I too was talking about.

    And while it's definitely nice, it's more of a creative flourish plus it's something that can be difficult to come up with (if one is serious about creating a mod), which was my point (e.g. I've been struggling to come up with a name for a long while now).

    Looking forward to trying these out, thanks for sharing and for putting the effort to import the heroes onto other maps!
    There's another map I made with these heroes btw, incase you missed it: (6)Tortoise Creek (Custom Heroes)

    Ahh this map was uploaded soon after the first one, I just wanted to play some other maps with these new heroes haha. You must've missed it when it was originally posted.
