Aeon of Souls v2.03

Submitted by Vestras
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Copy-paste from www.wc3campaigns.net.
Aeon of Souls

Foreword
Another AoS from me.
It has 10 heroes, (still need 2 to make all players have at least one) basic items, but everything else is as it should be.

Don't expect too much already, really. It's not too completed, although I used 4/5 months on this, on and off.

Features
  • Condition system (Like DoE's, although not very used)
  • 6vs6 gameplay
  • Nice heroes (according to those who tried it. :p)
  • Less than 2 mb
  • Pretty big replayability IMO

Commands
-ap, -allpick, -ar, -allrandom, -random, -sm (Not functional.), -allheroes (Single player.), -lvlup. (Single player.)

Enjoy.

Version Updates
v1.05a - fixed minor issues
v1.05a - finished Arcane Disrupter.
- did some minor balance.
- fixed hero selecting bug.
- added some conditions to spells in order to balance.
v1.04b - added - unfinished - hero Arcane Disrupter to Undeads.
- fixed some ability bugs.
- added basic items.
- added merchants.
- fixed some minor balance problems.
v1 - initial release.


Notes
No notes currently. Just enjoy it. :D (This map is protected.)

    Please remove the greenish weather effect... IMO it will make the game more messy

    Heroes are interesting... Need to work on the game system though, IMO you get started with gold bounty soon
    It is a pretty sweet game 3/5 imo
    5/5 for development
    3/5 for intersting
    1/5 for progress

    What do you mean with progress? It's nearly ready for first release out of beta.
    But yeah, thanks for testing.

    As it is in 1.07a means it is at least out of the beta already, but in the alphas of 1.08. In the End, it means you still have to do a lot for the orignal real come out, -> 1.00.
    That's at least how I know the system with the versions.

    Alphas are usually from .00-.50 while Betas are .51-.99
    Your version being 1.07a means that you've supposedly moved from full release to alpha of version 2.00

    1.00 usually will signify completion of a game, which can then later be added to. Phase Killer is one of the better maps for correct version progression, if you'd like to take a look at how it works.

    Updated to 2.00.
    Since I figured that there were still crashes, I decided to cut a lot of the features and release this completely stable version.

    Well Im not entirely sure what to say about this lol. I was impressed, thats for sure, but not just about the content of the map but of how much it differed from regular AoS's. Its nice to see something unique for a change, and I think this could go quite far with a few more heroes and a bit more work done on it.

    Good things
    -Good unique gameplay
    -Heroes had triggered powers
    -Powers and heroes differed greatly from Warcraft or DotA heroes
    -Nice skins imported

    A few bad points
    -Wierd green weather effect made it seem strange
    -A few spells need better tooltips, and a bit more work done on them
    (An example would be the Time Strike power I think its called, that didnt really have much to do with time)
    -Buffs are called Buffs, not conditions. Conditions will only confuse people

    I rate this map 9/10

    Presentation: 4/5
    The map was presented very well. The hero-selection system was quite stunning although I have seen it before (DoE). The multiboard was a nice touch, but it is in nearly every AoS. The tooltips could have been better. Try to stick to the way Blizzard's tooltips are made. I should be able to see how the ability changes throughout each level. There were also a few spelling and gramatical errors (such as the item "Ring of Life Regeneration"). also recommend changing the "Quests" log to "Map Info" or "Readme".

    Terrain: 3.5/5
    The terrain was pretty good. A few areas could have been done better, but the majority was done fairly well. It contained a good amount of tile and doodad variation. The green fog on the undead side was quite frustrating, though. I suggest removing the fog, or at least a chat command to remove for that certain player (If you need help coding that, then feel free to send me a PM).

    Sound: 5/5
    The hero I played had a fitting sound set, no complaint there. The map contained a few eerie sounds, which added to the atmosphere.

    Gameplay: 4/5

    Gameplay was pretty good; the standard for an AoS. The map was 6v6, using Neutral Extra and Neutral Victim to control the other player slots. It's worth noting that the map cannot currently be played as 6v6, as there is only 10 heroes. The heroe's had a good ammount of trigger-enhanced abilities, which was a change from many other maps. The ammount of items and heroes were decent, but it doesn't quite stack up against others AoSs such as DotA and ToB. Lasting Appeal: 4/5
    A 6v6 AoS with a good number of items and heroes can be quite enjoyable. However, the AoS genre has always been quite crowded, and Aeon of Souls will probably be seen as quite generic. Nevertheless, this map offers many possible strategies in the form of teamwork, and skill and item builds.

    Overall: 4.1
    My Recommended Approval Requirement: 2.6
    Result: Pass

    Its really good, but needs more items and debug those things:

    Sometimes the surge is removed after using it again. I think you need to check if any timer is alive which will remove it when doing spell again.

    You can run into an building and/or unmoveable places with your passive ability. I suggest to fix that.

    Thanks for testing guys, it is very appreciated.

    > as there is only 10 heroes

    Actually there is 12, (or 14, can't remember) the text up there is from 1.05 (aka outdated)

    > Well, have new for you... it is totally IMPOSSIBLE not to approve this map xD

    Well thank you :)

    > Sometimes the surge is removed after using it again. I think you need to check if any timer is alive which will remove it when doing spell again.

    Surge? What? Wtf is a surge? Explain pl0x.

    > You can run into an building and/or unmoveable places with your passive ability. I suggest to fix that.

    You can generally just run through stuff. (not trees of course) Yes this is intended, because I believe that the lanes are small so you would want some more space.

    > Other cool screenshots:

    I suggest you to play some more heroes, they're much more 'eyecandy'd'.

    So... anyone signing up for the tourny?

    Positives:
    - Has a Hero selection system

    Negatives:
    - Not widgetzed (widgetzer is a loading time reducer)
    - Almost all heroes have different skins
    - Map has low performance compairng with other maps
    - Name is a LITTLE copied
    - Vexorian isnt credited for his hero selection system (Even if you made it, it uses his idea and ways)
    - Random Hero doesnt work
    - Needs more items
    - In mana strike life gained isnt determined by mana removed, you just gain life even if you cast it on a unit without mana
    - Map size is huge
    - No one is credited for a spell or script which is weird

    Okay, that was REALLY narrow-minded... there are many things that you don't take into account...

    > - Not widgetzed (widgetzer is a loading time reducer)

    Tell me how you can be sure about that.

    > - Almost all heroes have different skins

    Since when is that a negative?

    > - Map has low performance compairng with other maps

    Referring to?

    > - Vexorian isnt credited for his hero selection system (Even if you made it, it uses his idea and ways)

    Why? When he didn't do anything at it, why should I credit him? I believe he can ask me to do it himself if he really wants me to, he isn't stupid or anything.

    > - In mana strike life gained isnt determined by mana removed, you just gain life even if you cast it on a unit without mana

    Which is intended.

    > - Map size is huge

    No, not compared to several other maps. Look at the first maps here, and tell me if it's still huge.

    > - No one is credited for a spell or script which is weird

    It isn't weird, at all, because I coded everything.
