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.

==Important News==

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!

    Well. It is nearly a month since you told that you would test it and we have not seen anything since? Any update on the next version?

    After finishing my part of the map, i gave it to arkless about a month ago so he could do his part. No chance to blame me anylonger.
    I also asked him several times to finish the map. After he is done, the map must be tested, then it is released. Get him to hurry and you'll get the map faster, i tried already.

    I'm sorry if you thought that i was blaming you for anything. Making a map takes time, i know that. I was simply asking if you know if the map will be done soon. :)

    Ofc it takes time, but i know by myself that it usually doesnt take /that/ much time. The last version was released in march if i remember it right. After that, i was busy with my job, and then Arkless was (or is) busy with his school. I cant promise that the new content is worth waiting 8 months, i really cant.
    Speaking of the content.
    The towers have been scrapped because the map was screwed up again somehow (ask arkless, not me, i have no clue what exactly happened). The Map is now at Arkless again, and he said he might rebuild the towers but he might also create something new.
    The new version is worked on, and it will come, but i cant tell when. I am very sorry for the waiting and the delays all the time, and if i were you i would be disappointed as well, but Reallives are first. We'll try to get the map released soon. It will be released before the year ends, hopefully already this month.

    Actually Arkless (now AncientOfLol) passed the map back to me yesterday.
    To justify the time it took us, i will also do a major Darksteel revamp, giving all Darksteel Artifacts a new sort of "character", which wont be very time-consuming. Literally, the only hard part will be the balancing of the four new artifacts made by Ancient.

    so

    I have 1.24d of froxen throne and most maps from Hive doesnt even show up when I try to start a map.

    Before I updated from 1.21a I could see them in my list but only play a few, most of them just popped right back to the map selection screen after trying to load a map. That is why i updated, and as I said, now I cant even see most of the maps (maybe 1 of 5 is visible).

    Any help would be greatly apriciated.

    My first guess is the return bug. since blizzards attempt to fix it, many maps got screwed up.
    You should try to get the latest versions of your games asap. that should fix the problem if my guess is right.

    There seems to be an issue with your minimap preview crashing Mac users. If you could change it, that would be wonderful, so we can play. =)

    I enjoy your map very much, however, I have only been able to play it single player for the longest time. It annoys me that your map does not give points in Single Player mode, as I can never play your map to its fullest. I understand that it could be a form of cheating by earning points in Single Player, but what if you created a different load code that could only be used in Single Player? I'm sure since you can detect when someone was playing alone, (IE. "You don't earn a code in Single Player"), you could create a code that will load points in Single Player, but not in Multiplayer. Not everyone plays Warcraft Maps with other people, or even online for that matter. Many players would probably appreciate the added flexibility of your map, and I don't think you need to do much to add this code in. Please consider this for future versions of your map. If you were to add this, Artifact TD would be my favorite Tower Defense of all time. Great Job on the map and Good luck with all your future maps!

    P.S. I registered for this forum just to tell you that XD

    A coincidence that i am just playing SC2 singleplayer and when i saw the attacking towers i just thought "wow, that would make great for a TD".

    Though, ATD has no response at all anymore, which is normal because we stopped updating it. I think an ATD for SC2 would not feel the same. Arkless tries to get involved with Element-TD, which i hope works for him. If he does, i will quit mapping anyway because i dont think i'll find such a great partner again. If he doesnt, the chances are still tiny because my real life just doesbt give me the time anymore...

    I realize this may be a few years too late, but is there any way to play this game today? I downloaded the file but when I try to create the game online or in LAN, it says the game was unable to be found.
