A STARCRAFT-LIKE MAP (TITLE IN DEVELOPMENT)


tl;dr It's Warcraft 3 in space. Map is in progress, stay tuned!


Hey again guys, after my previuos map [ [Altered Melee] - Altered Melee with non-playable campaign races of Wc3 ] I want to show you what I am currently working on these days.
The concept is about a 3 players FFA original RTS starcraft-like map with massive armies.
Okay, let me explain it first :y
I meant I want to create a straight FFA multiplayer map that could be played also with Ai computer players, where there are 3 factions to choose from (Terrans, Zergs, Orcs in Space)
I took the idea of 3 factions ffa from pc/ps4 game PlanetSide 2 while obviously the races are widely inspired from Starcraft's races, but with Orcs instead of Protoss.
The gameplay will be sightly different from the basic melee wc3 game, with some features inspired from AoE2, PlanetSide 2 and Starcraft 2.
There will be a hero system more like Co-op Commanders from starcraft 2 rather than wc3 heroes.
The tech-tree system is also different and it is like AoE's ages.
There aren't creeps but there will be a trade system to get resources more quickly.
Armies will be larger than wc3 ones for large scale battles.
All models, icons and animations are from world editor only.

Currently I'm already working on making the races (adding units/spells/buildings and defining hero/tech/economy systems per race) and balancing them in the meanwhile. Then I will make the terrain and AIs.
The map is work in progress and many things could change in the future, actually right now I am not sure the map will be fully completed and ready to release at some day.
In the next days I will update this thread with more previews, screenshots, infos and ideas beside map progress status.
That's all I have for you now, I hope some of you guys are interested :) bye!
