AvP - Extinction v1.11

Submitted by X-OOM
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Alien vs Predator - Extinction is a Map in which u decide which Race u play. Aliens, Predators or Marines. Each Race have another Playstyle other Units, Upgrades and Tech. Each Race have weaknesses and strenghts. Its based on Meele Maps. Orcs/Humans = Marines, Nightelf = Predator, Undead = Alien
The Map can be played 4v4 , 3v3, 2v2 or 1v1 or even FFA i don't know. The AI is not working so your only chance is to Host this Map or let it Host in Bnet and play with full Players. I haven't got the chance to play with other Players because i can't Host. So test this for me and say balace issues or bugs.

Marines:

-Resources: Marines gain Income from the Main HQ. By upgrading it the Income gets bigger. The secondary Income source is to build Atmospheric Processors. But u first must search for a "Energy Spring" to build one on it.

-CommTechs: CommTechs can repair all Mechanical Stuff like Buildings,Sentrys and Synthetics. They also can build a New HQ (if yours is destroyed) and a Technology Center. They also can call DropShips which let youTrain new Units instantly.

-Technology Center: The Technology Center is used for all the Marines upgrades. It gains no Resource income though.

-Race Data: Marines have Units whit the highest Attackspeed but low Health. They have Units for all Situations. Some of them move slow though. The main Strategy is to find the right mix between all Units. Tech 1 Units can be Huged by Facehuggers.



Aliens:

-Resources: Aliens gain Resources by Building Hive Nodes and upgrade them further to gain more. The Alien Queen is a second Income Source too.

-Eggs: Alien Units are only build by the Queen. The Queen can lay Eggs. She can decide to lay Normal Eggs or Praetorian Eggs which spawns Stronger Units. Be careful and watch for your Queen. If she Dies you can't build any more Units until you have a Praetorian and Evolve it to an Queen.

-Hive Nodes: Alien Hive Nodes Spawn contantly Animals for xour Facehuggers. They try to Hug automatically on them and every other Enemy Unit which is Levl 1- If they don't do you can do by yourself. If a Facehugger hugs on something then after a few seconds it dies and a Chestburster is spawned on its Position. Hive Nodeas are also used for all the Alien upgrades and they will shoot a big AccidBall on the Enemys if they come in the near of it.

-Alien Units: Chestbursters are the Main Alien Unit. They can't attack and are dead instantly if you don't watch at them. They are used to evolve into bigger Aliens. Normal Chesbursters can be evolved to Drones,Runner and Warriors.
Praetorian Chestbursters can be evolved to PredAliens and Praetorians.
Praetorians can be evolved to The Queen, Carriers and the Ravager.

-Race Data: Alien Units are very Cheap and instantly produced if the Chestbuster is there. All Alien Units are meele only , but with some usefull spells. The main Alien Strategy is to mass Units and overwhelm the Enemy with the Mass of them. Don't forget to protect your Queen though, if she dies its over because only shee can create Eggs.


Predators:

-Resources: Predator Resource is gained very low from the "Predator Temple" and the Shrines too. But the Main IncomeSource is to build Slaves. Slaves will increases your Income by +1. The more Slaves you build the more Resource you get. Watch out they have low HP and are very fragile to Ambushes and will die very fast. And they will move automatically to random Positions around your Base. You can't control them. Better keep them in safety. The Slaves will use 3 FoodLimit each of them. Normal Units will only use 1 FoodLimit. So keep it Balanced.

-Shrines: The Predator Shrine is used for all the Predator upgrades. It can be upgraded too to gain more Resource and Food Limit. And it is needed to unlock further Units in the Main Temple. Predator Shrines have a Plasma Attack and will attack everything in Range. It also has a Energy Recharge Aura which recharges all The Predators energy if they are next to it.

-Predator Units: The Predator Temple is used to build all the Predator Units. The List is: Brawlers,Hunter =Tech1. Spear/Disc Masters, PredGuns and Hydras = Tech2. Blazers, Stalkers, Vanguards and Ancients =Tech3. It also has a Plasma Attack which attacks everything in Range.

-Slaves: Slaves are the Main Income Source for Predators. But they can build new Temples too (if your main is destroyed). They also build Shrines and they can repair broken Buildings.

-Race Data: Predator Units are Strong and the most of them can Clock themselves to move faster. But they are expensive and the Attackspeed is not that high. The Main Strategy is to play Stealthy with them and use all their advantages and Technolgy to overwhelm the Enemy.


Neutral Things:

-Gyrote's: Watch out for "Gyrote's, they are placed all over the map (seen as big red dots if you turn on show creep camps option). Don't engage them with few Units, they will kill them instantly. If you don't attract them or go in near of them, they won't bother you.

-Neutral Units: Kurn's,Oswoc's and Krilitic's are neutral Units all over the Map and can be used to by Facehuggers to Hug on them. They won't attack you.

-Vision Mode: Some Marine Units use Motion Tracker, Aliens use Alien Vision and Predators use Predator Vision to see Invisible Units (like clocked Predators.

    Yeah! Finally! First map today, which can be approved! (ok, I found one more, but it haven`t got good description yet).
    Nice tooltips, good number of upgrades. When playing as alien it was lacking a little bit of more buildings for me and the most important thing dor me: a hero. The terrain is good enaugh, but still can be better. And put some screenies to description, to make it better.
    One thing to fix: as marine there was displayed a message, that if I won`t build a hall, my base will be revealed. Fix it and the map should be approved.
    But since it`s really well done, I vote for approval with 3/5 rating.

    Damn, just one more thing:
    Are you real creator?

    Thanks for the comment.
    1. Yes i use different Names and that was my second one , this other name her is very old.
    2. How can i add screenshots?
    3.The map concentrates more on Units instead of Buildings.
    As i like the Idead of a Hero, but in Starcraft there are no Heroes too :)
    I look at this thing with the Message.

    Also, make the description in a comment box, so you can use colors etc. then use it as the hive description. Adding a preview image would make it more attractive.

    I hosted and played this map, and there where a lot of balance issues. Towers/defenses are way too easily massed, making bases almost impenetrable. The combat between races was also lacking, exosuits beating any other unit without any trouble. Predators also build too slow. I would advise limiting towers, and separating income structures from defensive ones, and putting a cap on the maximum amount of resources you can gain per second. You may want to make a second team that lists which race is which, in case the host doesn't tell anyone. The game and recourse systems where well set up, however, and mimicked the real AvP Extinction game successfully. The map would also be much better with models for aliens/predators.
    Overall, I give this map a 2/5.

    Thanks for the Feedback. I will fix all things later this day if i get time. U can list every balance suggestion for damage,health and other things for every unit to make the map more balanced. I'm sry that i can't host so i would see it myself. Btw. Ok lets say i can host. But if someone joins he downloads the map first until 100% then he gets instantly kicked, if he rejoins but has the map he gets instantly kicked too. Any suggestions to solve this?

    The first time I saw your map, I thought "Awesome man, an AVP map finally!" Then when I played it, I thought different.

    Bad Points:
    Strange how the creeps periodically die and spawn in bases, though I know it was deliberate.
    There are hardly any custom models in this map! I mean, please replace those god-damn spiders with real aliens and the damn Draenei with real Predators!
    The buildings weren't exactly exotic.
    In your in-game map description, notify players which normal races are aliens, predators, marines (Write something like Marines = Human/Orc, Alien = Undead etc).
    No map preview, I mean come on, AVP images are everywhere!
    Perhaps add some heroes and reduce all those units.

    Good points:
    I liked the Marine race.
    Cool face-hugging system.
    Generally fun to play, ignoring the crap models.
    Nice, long, detailed unit descriptions.
    Terrain is reasonable.

    Overall:
    A map with an awesome theme and idea, though lacking in a lot of areas. 3/5 and no vote. Keep trying mate.

    I find this a mass-fest that gets boring after you've seen everything. I also think end-game alien is imbalanced along with exo-suits which I used to stay alive for another couple minutes against their relentless onslaught.

    Yes, the map size is really low, you could add skins it would make the map MUCH greater

    Yes i would have to agree with the others, sure a map does not need custom models to be good. But this is AvP without custom models AvP is just a title.

    And finding the models is kinda your job altough i don't blame you for asking for help.
    Ive looked around and well i can't find any i really feel are good so i would suggest you post a thread in the forums and find someone willing to make you the models.
