    They're units with custom models, if that helps.

    The new hero selector has an annoying glitch; the way WC3 wraps texttags differs on each resolution. Thus, the map will ask the player to choose their resolution from the supported resolutions list (because the values have to be determined by manually testing everything). I'm doing the line wrapping instead of WC3 now. So, currently, I only support these resolutions:
    • 1024x768
    • 1280x960
    • 1280x1024
    • 1440x900
    • 1600x1200.

    These are quite commone resolutions - but if you're using something else, please let me know and I'll add them to the list. Please note that my monitor doesn't support anything above 1600x1200 (the old one - the current one's limit is 1440x900), so it has to be below that.

    Pretty neat aos map, I like the custom health bars. All the heroes seems to be well thought and designed also.

    You could add support to 1920x1080 resolution as it is a pretty common resolution. Pretty much everyone I know uses a monitor that supports that resolution.

    I'd really like to, and many other resolutions as well, though my monitor doesn't support it, thus I can't find the proper values for them (they all have to be manually found using a long, boring procedure). 1440x900 will work perfectly for them though, as it's the same aspect ratio, but lower resolution.

    I got a PM from Champara_Bros today, so those 3 damn effects might be soon finished, that I need for 0.85. I don't dare to promise anything, though, but I'm willing to release it, as 0.84 has lots of gamebreaking bugs.

    Yea, I wanted to keep the proc mechanisms, but I think it was too random, and also unfair as it had no cooldown whatsoever. Now the player can sort of control the strength of individual procs by getting the proper stats, but it'll still come down to their luck. The additional damage/mana replenishment was added to compensate the early uselessness of the skill, and to make up for the over the average mana costs.

    I'm satisfied with the result as well, I think the Primordial Sentinel effect is just epic (credits to J, who's unfortunately banned from THW), and the passive/active components are helpful (now he has a cool movement speed steroid, so he can chase others) - though he isn't that CC monster he used to be.

    I'm also damn glad I finally managed to finish Scneer's ultimate, my favourite spell in the entire "game".

    I'd like to bump the thread as I want more feedback - we worked quite hard on this version and it's propably the last one before the beta release so I want more feedback.

    • Forked Lightning tooltip: Amount*
    • Add a short summary under the hero's storyline during selection, "Role: Mage/Tank, Difficulty: Easy" etc., you play LoL, you should know what I'm talking about :p
    • Add a separation in the selection maybe, ranged heroes on top, melee at the bottom
    • Add a starter shop icon which contains the basic items a player should buy in the beginning

    I love the tower range indicator :p
    Overall I'd have to say there's a neat amount of items, hero variety, oh and also the spells and the concept of all the heroes are really interesting, especially Lightning Phenomenon's :p
    This can easily get a 5/5 rating in its current state, however, it really reminds me of LoL a lot, you've obviously taken most of its features like AP, AD, Resistance, Recall, etc.
    The map doesn't seem to be showing me anything new.
    The only last thing I could say is that maybe you should consider making this a bit more user-friendly but adding a summarization of what a spell does instead of really long text and also add a short summary about a hero.

    First of all, thanks for reviewing our project once again!

    So to reply to your notes:
    • I'll fix that typo; it's a common mistake Hungarians do (ammount, loose) - I don't want to go into details, let's just say that I'll fix it.
    • I think I'll lower the height of the "hero board" so that I can make another window, where things like "Difficulty" and "Attributes" will be shown. ("attributes" like "jungler", "carry", "tank", "squishy", "support", "nuker", "mage", "ranged", "melee")
    • Because lot of the heroes can be played multiple ways and might fit into multiple roles, I can't group them - and to be honest I don't want to do it either. Once I add that small window it'll also become unnecessary.
    • I was thinking of replacing the "Exit Shop" icon with a dummy ability that shows the list of required items - I can also make a spellbook, though certain items might have the same hotkey, which will collide.
    • Well yea, LoL surely inspired me many times, but it's also true that it's the biggest MOBA game right now and it'd be quite hard to make something that LoL doesn't have already. My goal also wasn't reinventing the wheel, I just wanted to make an AoS map based on the old DotA-like gameplay, but with enhanced game mechanisms, items and heroes.
    • "It doesn't have to show anything new" - well, I think it's relative. I'm proud of the stat & combat system, the health plates, the tower range indicators, the shop system, and quite a few other things. And the heroes/items as well. I mean a lot of people compare this to LoL, but it's just WarCraft 3; it's annoying sometimes, but I'm also glad that my map reminds them of an individual game.
    • And last but not least, spell tooltips. To be honest this is something I've been debating on changing for quite a while by now, though I think I'll keep it like this. A lot of the spells are so complex that even if I cut down on their length it'll still be over the average, and also, you only have to read it once or twice, after that you'll remember. All the important stats are at the top, so you'll always be able to find what you need immediately. I like that most of the tooltips contain some lore and describe how and why they work the way they do, plus, I love English and those long tooltips :)

    Once again, thanks for testing it and I hope that my reply was sufficient.

    So, as Vengeancekale suggested, I made a little bar that shows the most important information about the selected hero. Here are a few screenies:


    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Also, I've made a list of suggested items, and most likely, there'll be an icon in the shop menu, that opens this list (in a spellbook). The abilities will be added into them directly from other spellbooks, meaning hotkeys will be messed up - it's quinte unfortunate, but it's still better than creating 24*11 new abilities. I'll have to test this first though, hopefully nothing will go wrong if multiple books contain the same spell.

    Here's the list, just in case someone is curious (directly from the map trigger - I'm storing this in a new, disable trigger):

    "1/2/3" represents the first, second and third lines respectively, as the book'll be sorted like this:
    • 1st line: suggested starting items
    • 2nd line: core items
    • 3rd line: other recommended, but situatinal items.

    And last, but not least, the terrain is being remade almost from scratch by a new friend of mine, Hellx-Magnus. There's no ETA for the new patch or anything like that, unfortunately we're all busy now (I haven't heard from Fjury for weeks, I and Champara_Bros are more concerned about our university studies, and Hellx-Magnus has to work) - I hope you can understand this, summer is over.

    That's all I wanted to say. There's one more thing left though:

    We all agreed on that it's frustrating to have to walk home all the time, so I implemented that spell, a direct clone of League of Legend's "Recall" ability. It was even requested by a few WC3 players outside of the team. You can easily interrupt the channel by damaging the caster, there's a 6 seconds channel time on it, as you may know. I think it's fair, nothing gamebreaking or anything.

    EDIT: so I started implementing the recommended items books. I'm already done with two of them:

    Hey man,

    here's an hero I made for friends of mine to display their self-made skills.

    It's totally not well triggered, lots of leak, not MUI but I give this guy to you, you only need a passive that can be added to it's normal attacks, something that crits/stun because he is much more a CC bot with good AoE and support over real uber dps.

    This can be a freaking good Support.

    Here's the passive I'm thinking, whenever he deals damage, he heal one ally near him randomly for the damage done. So his "Q" can be used as healing too and normal attacks will also heal allies.

    Or it could be that normal attacks deals % of max health and his attack speed is slow. (you can make him an AGI hero)

    Or ignore it !

    see ya !

    I'll propably change the theme to something demonic, or IDK - we have 2 Last Alliance supports, and only one for the Fel Force. The next hero will also be on the alliance's side, though there's no ETA yet. The next patch won't contain a new hero. There's one thing I can say about the shaman (no name/class either, so for now, let's just call him a shaman, as he is one) will be really complex and versatile. Propably more complicated than Crizzixx.

    Maybe you could try capitalizing those stuff life resource, roles, etc and add spaces in between.
    They would look much more pleasing.

    The funny thing is that "Resource" already uses that format (as it's the same text that's on the StatBoard), but it's converted to that, because I thought it looked better. I could give it a try once I get my flash driver back (I'm at home and the latest version is on my own PC, which I left in the flat, and my cousing borrowed my flash driver, which contains the latest version)

    Hey there, it's me again !

    Here's another hero I made during lost time. I have a thing for supports, this one is very decent.

    Passive is included into the [E] spell.

    Pretty sure you'll like it. Once again, didn't remove leak or made them MUI as it is just to show the hero.

    Enjoy !

    You like Malzahar eh? :) I used to main him back in season 1, but then I bought Vladimir... :p

    As I said though, I've got a couple of hero concepts that I'm willing to make before starting anything else, so even if I was to make them, they'll have to wait A LOT as I don't really have much spare time now that I attend a university.

    ---

    I know it's been a while since the last patch came out, and I'm really sorry for all this silence. But don't worry (those who even care about IID), it's by no means dead, we're working on it - unfortunately, not as much as we did during summer, but it's not forgotten. The new patch won't contain a new hero, take that for granted. But it'll bring something even cooler: the reworked terrain. Some of you might have seen a few pictures on THW's chat, a long ago, though a lot has changed, and it's ~55% completed already.

    Once Hellx gets back from his trip (propably today or tomorrow) and sends me the latest WIP with the two bases and the whole alliance side finished, I'll share a few screenshots with you, my fellow IID followers. So stay tuned!

    <<PREVIOUS UPDATE

    So here are the pictures I was talking about; the Fel Force base ain't finished yet, but all in good time. After looking at the pictures you'll understand why it takes this "much" time to finish it (the terrain, I mean).

    The camera uses the (default) game camera distance (2150).

    UPDATE (11-25-2012)
    A few Fel Force base WIP's:

    And (propably) the final layout:

    I've also uploaded a lot of screenshots to THW, that you can find here.

    Credits to Hellx, our terrainer for making all these screenshots, and for the hard work he's already put into the project!
