Hey.

I'm doing a large project called The Chosen Ones. At the moment doing chapter 7 and I'm nearing the end. The campaign totally will have 10 chapters.

This is my third and final remake of the campaign. I've been in the past requesting this system with slight results. I've contacted many people but none of them either don't have the patience to completely finish this or simply doesn't have time to help me out.

Why I'm making such a system? This way I'll allow player to buy lower and higher ranked items. More importantly, if player have forgot to pick an item from early chapter, this place will allow player to buy these items. Some items from early chapters are needed to create powerful late game items. I'm trying to make this campaign in a way that player doesn't need to peek under every single stone.


To the request.

First of all, I want to show you a video that the Auction Hall should be like:

I've already started doing this system. You can either continue or do totally your own type of a system. Either way, I just want the system to be somewhat like I've requested.

Also, I've requested exact same system in the past.


Basic information about the system:

- The system should be made either by GUI or basic JASS(this is a campaign). I prefer GUI however so that I can understand about the system something. Either way, the system should be easy to understand and edit.
- When player enters to the auction hall the system starts to work.
- Computers have own AI, and they bid all the time(this is the hardest part of the system).
- Item prizes will be from 500 to 50,000.
- There are four item categories: "Weapon", "Armor", "Jewel" and "Others".
- There are four other bidders controlled by computer: Djoses, Otzmos, Sannique and Tiasarah. Each bidder have it's own special category where they are willing to pay more and one category items they don't want to buy at all.
- Djoses: Willing to buy more from "Weapon" category(20%), won't buy anything from "Jewel"
- Otzmos: Willing to buy more from "Armor" category(20%), won't buy anything from "Others"
- Sannique: Willing to buy more from "Jewel" category(20%), won't buy anything from "Weapon"
- Tiasarah: Willing to buy more from "Others" category(20%), won't buy anything from "Armor"
- Items will have specific prizes in the settings, but in the game it looks like they doesn't(some randomization here). For example it can go 25% lower or higher from this exact number.
- There will be two type of items: Items that can be bought infinite times and items that once bought, cannot be bought again.
- There should be a chance for example that Sannique could buy an item from armor category even if she's not specialist in that category(it looks a bit stupid if always X bidders buys all from specific category).
- Make the Auction Hall more "living" by making some floating texts from the bidders. Like "Hmm..." or something similar.
- I think the best result would be that player writes a number to chat when bidding.
- There should be a chance to pause the system. For example player presses ESC and a dialog will appear stopping the system. In the dialog player can look what the current item does or quit the auction hall.
- You can too improve the idea and add some extra things you would like this system to have.


Ask if you have questions. If you can do this I'll credit you with a special credit in the official website, in the beginning and in the end of the campaign as well. This is most likely the last big system I'm requesting.

I asked you about this 2 months ago and since then I've been asking the progress few times but you never actually said doing this. Finally I came into a conclusion that you gave up with the request.

So I decided that it's time to make a thread and find someone who could help me with the case.

Anyway, the most important thing is that this could be done. If you're once again willing to help me that would be superb.

However, this helps you greatly and with the saved resources you can spend to get more powerful items at the beginning already.

Additional information




  • Open source: If you are going to play, open or share the campaign you must have read, understood and agreed to the rules I have made just for this campaign.
  • Credits: A complete list of people who have helped me.
  • History: See how it all started and how it came to this day.
  • Other stories: See other stories that belongs to the world of Oelivert.



During making this campaign almost three years, I have met incredible persons. Without them, this project would have died long time ago. With your feedback and help I'm able to finish this project. What we must remember, is that I'm not doing this for myself, I'm doing this for you.

MOVED TO HERE TEMPORARILY.




It all started from a competition Kitabatake hosted. There were four competitioners: Kitabatake, PA3OPx2 and [email protected]@R(who actually came to me all the way from Serbian). This triggered the campaign The Chosen Ones.

I made an own thread about the campaign in order to gain some feedback. I needed feedback in order keep up my motivation.

However, when the deadline came, others gave up. Still, I continued creating this massive project. I didn't want to give up as I already done so much. It wasn't an easy job, and still is not. I tried to do an enormous campaign within just two months. Now I know it's simply impossible as I'm still working on it.

Months after months, school days after school days I everyday worked hard to finish this project. After some months after the competition was disqualifed I released my first Alpha Versions. It wasn't success at all, there were many major bugs and the english was horrible.

I tried to improve my english in school, but it didn't go that well. I'm a lazy student and I started to make "translation requests" in order to make better english for the campaign. Some might even remember those threads I made: "Translation Request 1", "Translation Request 2", and so on. If you just go to Hive's search and write "Aeroblyctos" as threads' started you will see about 50% of the threads links to the campaign. Perhaps now you start to understand how much I have done for a single project?

When the summer came, I released sixth release of the campaign in WC3C. It was not taken well and I understood that I must work even harder for the campaign. I gave up with that site and came back to Hive and to make some requests. I'm average in almost every genre of editing maps. I cannot do models and draw things which limited making the project.

Project went on and new versions came and came. Various people helped me along the way and I was able to make the project more and more unique from other projects. I even made with help of Xarwin own website for the campaign.

Then army came and I had to stop campaign almost totally for the next 9 months. However, at the end of army I made some great progress and I promised to release the first Beta versions after I came from army. However, my lack of motivation after the army stopped the project totally. For 4 months, I just did some things there and there and promised and promised but couldn't keep my promises after all. I'm sorry about that.

Now I'm back again and this time I once again promise to release next version. We shall see where this go, but I have feeling I will keep my promise this time. At least I made this thread. :D


Coming soon.
