Battle of Flags v2.0a

Battle of Flags v2.0b


Introduction:

Battle of Flags is inspired by a sliding minigame named "Ice Escape". The idea was to bring the sliding map into a new direction with using abilities against each other and starting fights while sliding.
The "Capture The Flag" genre is just something I personaly enjoyed playing much also in other games -- so it was decided to combine both.

Gameplay:

There exist 2 teams. The goal of each team is to capture the enemy's flag and bring it to one's own base while the opposite side tries to defend it.
For movement you slide over ice which makes the aimning and shooting harder and more interesting.
When touching pathing borders (snow), your hero will be paralyzed for a short moment, which can lead to a dangerous moment for you.

In begining of each round you choose one vehicle ofwhich each of them has a shoot- and a special ability:

Alien:
[​IMG]
Can drop an explosive egg.

Catcher:
[​IMG]
Can shortly entangle a nearby enemy.

Jumper:
[​IMG]
Can jump over enemies, missiles, and cut paths.

Saver:
[​IMG]
Shoots a HolyRa which
revives fallen allies from death.

Sniper:
[​IMG]
Has an extra strong, and extra fast misslile.
Can make itself temporary invisible.

Tank:
[​IMG]
Needs 2 common shots to be taken down.
Can make itself temporary invulnerable.



Some abilties combined can be very strong together, so it may be pretty important for a team to stick together.

Features:

There exist:
  • Tunnels
  • Catapults
  • Teleports
... to travel faster through the map. Tunnels for example, are reserved for a specific team, so each team has a little travel-bonus inside it's own base.

There exists a Save/Load system to save player statistics. The map will try to save data on your harddrive, which requires your Wacraft III to have "Local Files" enabled.
If you have no idea how to achieve it you can solve it like this:



    • If you use JNGP editor, you can go to "Extentsion" -> "Enable Local Files"
    • Tutorial to manualy enable local files.
    • You can run this demo which will guide you through the setting.
For all players having "Local Files" enabled it will load statistics from hard drive and automaticaly save new ones when the player leaves or the game ends.
How ever, saving data won't work on SinglePlayer mode.


Currently, there is no save/load system.

  • It is recommended to play with a 4:3 resolution. Especially the stats multiboard will look ugly strecthed in 16:9, for example.
  • It is recommended to play 4 vs 4, or with more.

    This really looks a very interesting map. I only have 1 thing to say:
    I think catcher is almost useless to kill enemies. Can he kill enemies by sliding against them or he only ensnare enemies? If he can only ensnare, then you should make another ability for him o.o

    Nice map! :ogre_haosis:

    Uhm, first of all thanks for compliment, Wrda.
    No, of course the Catcher can kill enemies as well, with his normal "shot-ability". Sorry for this misunderstanding... in car description i just note the SPECIAL abilites, which differs it from other vehicles.

    Btw, if you wanna know some more things, you are welcome to use WE... this map is completly unprotected!

    This map is based on ice escape? sounds great! I like ice escape but no one wants to play with me because it is 'too hard'
    Will give it a try soon

    Yes, not all people enjoy sliding on ice :/

    But to all:
    In Clan null (europe) you probably always can find some guys you could play with.. or /w IcemanBo.:wink:

    Really fun game! Very different from Wc3. I was so happy when I got fired from the catapult. I was like ... weeeeeeee. Totally a surprise. I also like the mini-games inside this game. Beginners will like the "lock camera" feature. I might go with an arrow movement system on this but if you like using the mouse maybe it could be optional. +rep 5/5

    Thx funAlways. The "bug" in arena actually wasn't a real bug. I've tested it and it only "bugged" if I wanted to bug on purpose (then other one just wins)... but anyway fixed this issue now, ty.

    I also changed default setting to lock-cam. ( better for beginners now... suggested by Legal Ease, thanks)
    Added Game Tips for rookies.

    Hello every1. Nice to see you all.
    +
    Perfect map, interesting scenareo, good control keys, low skill level needed, miniarenas... [not enough space]
    -
    Unfixed bugs(!), no players.
    Suggestions:
    A(radical)
    -To make popular forum of ice escape and to announce the project there(contact others shamis)
    -To do browser version. (warcraft 3 is gradually dieing!)
    B(soft)
    -Changeable hotkeys (for example -change triggers QW->AS for certain player)
    -To advertise it actively. No players, unfortunately.
    Map is marvelous.
    Best wishes to the project,
    ultrapro

    More suggestions:
    -obs/-unobs : to move to observers/back to game.
    -switch [] [] : to swap players in game.
    -Make the balls destroying each other (like in warlocks).
    -To think about how strong is your wish to develop this marvelous project.
    ADDED LATER:
    -To increase range of rocket for sniper: its not that big advantage for this car: less range, same damage.
    -Good decision of fixing snow bug. Congratulations

    Hm, that's strange. I did neither optimize or protect it. What kind of error does occur?
