Artifact TD v.1.23

Submitted by XelNecra
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is what i was working on the last few months... It's my fourth greater map now, but it's my first TD.

It contains lots of old and new elements, an assessable range of upgrades that will be extended in later versions, and some consumeables and random towers that can be purchased at the shops.

During the game, you gain Score-Points which can be saved and loaded. When you have enough Score-Points, you can unlock new, special Artifacts!

It is essential that you read the loadscreen. I hope you enjoy my map and leave comments.

Version 1.23.

It is finally done. After more than half a year. It mainly took us that logn because of school and work, but in the last few days we worked hard on getting it all done. I hope you like the results.

A new set of 4 random Artifacts has been added. Those Artifacts offer totally new tactics. In addition to that, the Darksteel set has been revamped, giving massive bonuses to the Artifacts. But this power has its price... find out yourself.

Enjoy!

    Artifact TD = Fun

    Awesome TD. The features are a nice change from the usual TD grind and its great to see the TD genre is still evolving, the question is, whats next? Oh the possibilities.

    whilst playing with my brother, its been lagging and kicking him out of the game about halfway through (lvl 20-24) and thought perhaps it was a bug...
    it says this message once he has been booted
    "d/c... WTF O.O"
    thanks

    Never heard of that bug though...
    I will check it. And no, ATD is not dead. A new version will be released this month. I know that i promised that several times to several people, but Arkless will force me using physical power, so i have no choice :hohum:

    Meh, my map was royally screwed, too (and I have 0 instances of the return bug).

    I have a question for you. Why do you have an S2I function that uses the return bug?

    Edit: I'm sure you know this, but have you used the temporary fix of sticking call DoNothing()s in between the return lines of your return bug functions? And you know there's a StringHash native, right? Does the same thing as the S2I function.

    Actually i didnt know. The Areas of the script thats use the return bug are Arkless' sections (to be honest i didnt even knew what the return bug was before it screwed up our map), and i dont touch his sections, mainly because i dont understand his sections oO But he's currently waiting for me to do something i dont find time for, before he can finish the map.
    I know that this is the third time that the release is delayed, but there will be a new vesion of this map for sure!

    Hi there

    I slowly wonder when the next version will be released.
    Arkless was testing several new towers months ago and all of them are working since a long time.
    So what are you waiting for?:hohum:

    Read this part of XelNecra's post:

    This is why a new version has not been released.

    will the new version resolve the issue of our beloved nephilims dying during the dmg test stage? :) i believe it's something related to the star-dust rune that triggers the allergic reaction.
