Dead Swamp

Submitted by Hummus
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
-Dead Swamp-
Chaotic Base Survival,
Very hardcore with extreme focus on teamwork.


Dead Swamp is a chaotic survival map, you must defend your base, villagers are made from farms as children and provide food when they grow up,the food they provide is divided between all players meaning the more players the less food each farm will provide the individual player.

You can build walls towers and combat units, income buildings, farms etc
The map is themed in a distant village far from any cities so your base and forces consist of 95% villagers and militia mind only a few knights and the captain of the village.

Undead will attack at Dusk and persist the entire night, they will stop spawning and any still alive will burn at Dawn.

After a few nights bosses will arrive at each midnight, so far there are 3 bosses currently implemented and 3 more planned; the bosses that are currently implemented all work around walls as they are the primary barrier between the Undead and you. I don't think it's possible to survive without walls.

Boss 1: Juggernaut; This boss is slow and very durable he has heavy Armour meaning all piercing damage is down to 20% against him in addition to his Armour and high health pool the only ranged attacks against him that are not essentially nullified would be any de-buffs (ex. poison arrows) the rifle man and the mortar team as they do normal damage. The Juggernaught also possesses siege damage and deals double damage to structures, it is recommended that you open your gates and engage him with melee troops as you cannot cower behind your walls he does far more damage to walls then you can repair.

Boss 2: Dead Assassin; This boss exploits your walls by completely ignoring them he possesses blink and will teleport right past your stationary barriers and slaughter your villagers he deals high damage and has critical strike evasion and mirror image his illusions also deal 50% damage. If you do not have melee troops inside your base to defend against breaches you will be in trouble.

Boss 3: Dread Lord; This boss may appear to be very weak and fragile, in fact if he is dealt with properly he almost poses no threat but if you mishandle him he poses the greatest of all threats possible, he has no combat abilities he will just run up and melee your base but every time he attacks a building he will gain mana and when he fills up on mana he will call a devastating Infernal directly into your base and their is no limit to how many Infernals he can call in. The Infernal itself is has all the abilities of the juggernaut but stronger additionally he has immolation, spell immunity and is called directly into your base.

I will not release information about any unreleased units or upcoming updates until they are complete and fully implemented.

Your goal is to survive and build the cathedral to begin summoning Uther and defend it until his arrival, optional high score tracks how many nights you survived prior to winning or losing.

Good luck!

    Played the map many times with the creator, quite a fun map. "Chaotic Base Survival" is a good description as the base is going to be stuffed to the brim very quickly.

    Seems you've used many resources which were not credited: Resources in Use by Swamp | HIVE
    Author and username difference, why?

    1. The camera doesn't start on where your units are but in the middle where there's fog of war.
    2. Panic's description=Repair's.
    3. When the hero changes attack modes he is not only unselected but also loses the control group. Instead of replacing the unit via triggers I suggest using bear form type of abilities with different ID orders.
    4. What's the difference between Shed and Market? They have the same descriptions.
    5. The Captain doesn't have Unstuck.

    Awaiting Update.

    How to Add a Screenshot to your Map Description


    ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
    • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
    • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
    • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

    Hey thanks for the review!
    Just updated the credits list, didn't know you can click one button to see resources in use (pretty cool!)
    My Username on Hive for some reason is using my real name instead of my intended username Hummus and I don't know how to change it.
    Updated the map to a new version, will add in game screenshots later on.
    Also I cut out the test part of the map in the playable version. (the right side was a testing area not to interfere with my actual map)

    In response to your 5 points:

    1. Fixed the camera.

    2. Not sure what you mean I double checked the panic ability and its description is definitely not repair.

    3. I will have to postpone a fix to this part next update, as my trigger to re-select replaced units caused a random player to disconnect each time,
    I also had a older bear form ability in its place in an older version and it caused disconnections as well..
    (I may need help with this fix)

    4. I believe you read them to fast, yes the descriptions are 90% identical but you missed an important keyword difference,
    the shed says it generates lumber while the market generates gold, allowing players to tech or invest into different play styles.

    5. This was completely intentional, I don't want the unstuck ability to be used in combat so it has a warning that it will cost 50% of the Hero's Hit Points to use it.
    Normally this inst a problem but the captain's is on a shared control team with some AI this is a problem because the AI will cast it automatically in combat and it has the potential for other players to grief by intentionally getting the Captain killed by using Unstuck in Combat. Instead I gave the captain an item which has limited uses but will allow the captain to Blink without Combat Penalties, also because this is an Item the AI will not use it.

    Oh sorry about that.
    Upload your map on the bugs thread and mention what happens. It's the game company's problem, not your triggering.
    Yeah, I saw it has only 3 charges.

    Please write a changelog.

    Approved.

    Well, yes since that way they could debug properly but of course it's not mandatory but then you should explain the situation in detail.

    I will probably screen share with someone from the forums, I don't want to upload the unlocked map
