    Celestial Conquest

    [​IMG]
    (Possible Loading Screen)

    Celestial Conquest is an all new type of map. The main idea of the game is to be the team to have the most points after 30 minutes or to gain control of the entire map. Gameplay is focused on your unique hero and teamwork with other players to defeat the other team.

    Story
    (not yet official)

    In the great times of chaos, a the host of new gods where born and the old gods where banished from their realms and forced to become flesh and walk the earth... In one last attempt to regain their divine powers the turn against one another...and chaos is the result.

    Gameplay

    The team with the most points win. You can gain points by:

    1: Capturing one of six strategic points: +25 points
    2: Returning the flag at the center to a strategic point: +50 points
    3: Killing enemy hero: +100 points
    4: You gain +3 points every second for each strategic point you controll
    5:You gain +4 points every second while carrying the flag.
    [​IMG]
    At each Strategic point there is also 2 defensive points which can be upgraded to several buildings. Above is a screenshot of a strategic point. Note all defensive points also has a shop and a portal to teleport to allied defensive points.


    Features
    Features include:

    Not only does Celestial Conquest has its own unique gameplay it also have some new features.

    New Hero Class System
    Each hero has 4 skills to choose from. 95% of all activated abilities are made with Jass. When your hero reach level 11 you select an additional class causing your hero to gain 4 additional abilities which can also be upgraded to level 4. Not only allows this to customize your hero according to your style, but your hero will have 8 abilities! This is done with some smart use of spellbooks.


    Creep System
    Across the map there are multiple points where neutral hostile creeps spawn. They are randomly generated and have a very small chance of dropping randomly generated items based on your level.

    Attachment Weapons
    Weapons are displayed on the hero. You can only use one weapon at a time.

    Improved Inventory Space
    Each hero has 20 initial inventory slots which can be improved by carrying a backpack

    Equip System
    Your hero can equip a weapon, armor, helm and 2 rings

    Sockets
    All weapons, armor and helms have sockets. You can insert gems into them to add special effects. There are series of Jewels and Runes into weapons. The effects of jewels stay the same no matter in what item they are inserted while the effects of runes are based on the item.



    Team so far

    the team...so far

    Main Scriptwriter/Object Editor/Team Leader : Me (Kyton)
    Co-Jasser : D3zmodos


    Project Recruitment

    I will need the following for this project...

    Modeler(s)
    I need someone who can animate models without weapons as well as create attachments. I could remove the weapons of normal war3 models but this would cause this map to not for fill in its potential.

    Co-Jasser
    I am rather adept at normal jass, but an help would be greatly appreciated.

    Terrainer
    A terrainer would help a lot. Terraining is not my specialty.

    2d Artist for loading screen
    Someone who is adept at making good loading screens would help alot. I myself can make loading screens, but I am not capible of creating something extraordinary.

    Alpha/Beta Testers
    Anyone willing to alpha or beta test should post here please.

    Feedback
    As with all maps, feedback will be needed to ensure that this map reach its full potential.



    Progress
    (to alpha test)
