Battle for Tatooine
Created by Darwin

Map Info:

Battle for Tatooine is an AOS-style Star Wars map using a custom flight system. Rebels resist an Imperial invasion of their research base in Tatooine. Players pilot starfighters, ground vehicles, cannons, and capital ships (ATATs and a recovered Republic Command Ship). Computer AI adjusts for player number, so you can play solo, cooperatively or competitively with your friends as a Rebel or Imperial. The game will detect how many players are on each side and adjust difficulty accordingly.

Features:

As a pilot for the Rebel or Imperial most of the time you will be flying a starfighter, strafing ground troops, dodging enemy fire, bombing enemy buildings and capital ships and shooting down enemy bombers. Features of starfighter combat include:

  • Linked and single fire
  • Rolls and lateral slips
  • Turret fire
  • Three types of missiles: concussion missiles, bombs, and proton torpedoes
  • Missiles home in on targets
  • Ion cannons that ionize ships for capture
  • Aerial Mines and other countermeasures
  • X-foil technology on Xwings and Bwings
  • Ion boosters
  • Sensors and jamming computers
  • adjustable camera with zoom in, zoom out, and rotate features (use arrow keys)
  • in-game help menu


Finally, the map has real Star Wars sound effects including lightsaber attacks, TIE screams, explosions, laser blasts, and more.

Additional Features:

In addition to extensive starship combat, the Battle for Tatooine includes:

  • Functioning ground vehicles: ATAT, ATST, T4-B Hover Tank
  • Custom hero abilities including laser reflection, force pull, and aimbot
  • An old crashed Republic Command Ship that has one last flight in it
  • Sandpeople raiders who can be influenced to take part in the battle
  • Cannon turrets you can use to shoot down enemy ships
  • Remote-controlled missiles

Author's notes:

This is my first and possibly only map released for WC3. I hope you enjoy it, and please feel free to leave feedback. The map is BNet compatible (under 8MB) but only after Vexorian's optimizer shrunk it. For that reason you cannot open the map and see what I did. I'm happy to share all my work with the fine people here at the Workshop, so let me know if you'd like the larger version and I'll put it up on a pastebin for you. I don't know JASS, so there might be better ways to do the things I've done in the map, but you're all welcome to my work.

This map was made with just the World Editor and some custom scripts given to me here on the Workshop (thanks to all the people who helped!) This map is complex with many repeating triggers. I've removed all leaks (as far as I know) but slower computers may still experience lag. You can zoom in or out using your up and down arrow keys while flying. Zooming in will reduce lag. I also ask your computer quality at the start of the game; this will adjust cameras when in cannons to reduce lag.

    If you ever do consider doing a space variant of this map, Make it like metastasis did their map, put space stations that you can enter and stuff, that would give the awesome ability to bust in.
    Woah woah woah, that idea reminds me of the clone wars where Obiwan and anakin go to save Palpatine, the skiving Scumbag.

    You are very welcome! I'm glad you enjoy it.

    I'm afraid there's not too much I can do at this point. The map is just small enough to fit on BNet, so I can't add any more ships or complicated abilities or anything. I'm afraid I'm really just fixing any bugs that come up for now.

    If anyone knows of a good snowspeeder model I'd consider doing a Hoth version... but I haven't found one.

    Thank you, I had fun making it. I was a big fan of Star Wars Battlefront 1. I really liked how they managed to combine spaceships, vehicles and ground combat.

    Okay, this is like thirty-five different kinds of awesome (twenty of which belong to the AT-AT mission). Minus a few bugs (Moff Reilly declaring that the Imperials have destroyed their own shipyard), this is near perfect.

    Just one thing that annoys me: not being able to select enemy units.

    Thanks for catching that bug! There was a problem earlier with the Shipyard announcement; I wonder if when I fixed that i just put in the wrong text. I'll see if I can fix that and upload another version soon.

    The selecting enemy units issue was a tough one for me. I wanted to have an easy way to set your targeting computer on an enemy fighter. I tried having an ability that you would cast on them, but it's hard to target a TIE fighter who is zooming around. That's when I settled on just selecting any enemy to enter them into the targeting computer. Once I did that I had to make it so you reselected your ship right afterwards.

    The thing I found most annoying about it was being unable to see the life of the person you are targeting, so I added the color coding on the targeting field of your dashboard.

    Oh, is that how it works? I thought right-clicking was enough. But it's most annoying when you're on foot, maybe you could have the targeting triggers turn off when not in a vehicle.

    Or even have an on/off switch for it, since... well...

    I didn't quite figure everything out in the short time I played, but it was a lot of fun anyway and I hope I'll find some people to play again soon.
    Great map!

    My review

    I love Star Wars! It is one of my favourite movies. :)
    This map is amazing! I love the models especially the Imperial shuttle and teh Jedi fighers! Good work. :):thumbs_up:


    Terrain


    It was really cool and it gave back the real Tatooine scene. I like the doodads and the textures! 5/5


    Units

    Amazingly chosen models and icons and units, it is really given back the feeling if i were in ST. i liked it. 5/5

    Abilities


    I liked the abilities, too, i liked the Jedi skills and the fighter skills, and the other spells and combats.

    Other

    I think the space staion is really well done, too. I love this amp and i will play it again. Luckily, i have lots of free time to do it now, it is my Christmas Holiday. Merry Xmas to you,

    I have only played the rebels, but i will play the rebels, too.
    The whole map's rating is 5/5/ Good job!

    Thanks for the recent comments.

    RE: Camera changes

    I'm not sure what kind of camera changes you are suggesting. Could you link the map whose camera system you liked?

    I tried a couple of different cameras so far. I tried one where the camera always faced the ship's facing, but it looked very fuzzy when you turned so I didn't like that one. I tried another camera where the camera was behind the ship and you were looking out in the front (like a flight simulator) but the lag was brutal and you couldn't tell who was behind you which was very frustrating.


    Also, I got a few comments about how great the models are. If you mean my choice of models was well done, then thank you very much! But I should point out I didn't actually make any of the models; the credits are given in the quest dialog box as well as on the first page here.

    Thanks again for the comments; it makes it all worth it.

    Dunno if this has already been said but... this map has some serious hero-dissapereance issues - I shot a flare and the shuttle picked me up and then some guy destroyed the shuttle while it was taking me away, but i didn't die, i just dissapeared from map, couldn't select my hero or find it on map or anything. Next time it happened was when I was in ATAT. At some point i simply lost control of ATAT, i couldn't select it anymore, and then when it was destroyed my character dissapeared again. I also heard some other people saying they dissapeared...
