Deforestation v11.1

Submitted by Alok
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Deforestation

This is a unique forest map filled with trees where players have to expand their logging empire and destroy the competition. Players start with 5 Woodcutters, a Kodo Mill, a Scout and 120 lumber, and can choose to expand in a number of ways in order to destroy their opponents. The map has two custom races with unique mechanics based on orcs/goblins and gnolls/kobolds respectively, and their technology and magic. The starting locations are orderly random and there is a huge forest at the disposal through which paths can be carved by harvesting lumber and attacking trees. There are also Qrh'qrc, the map's boss who drops a resource needed for the construction of one of the buildings which unlocks new powerful units and who can win you the game in an instant, Wywyr who randomly roams the woods and players can get control of her and her powers temporarily and wild Kodo Beasts which can be captured. The main resource is lumber and it is used for making almost everything, and Seeds of Qrh'qrc replace gold and are used for the construction of the most powerful units and buildings. It is recommended to play this map with 8 players (4v4), but you can also play it with any other available number and combination of players. The map has fully-working AI and it can be also played with/versus the computer players. Some of the possible strategies and tips on how to play can be found in the Strategies & Tips info quest in-game.



Features:
- Play as one of the two unique custom races
- Use and manipulate the forest to your advantage by cutting and regrowing trees
- Lumber as the main resource
- Unique game mechanics and unit mechanics and symbioses
- Side quests and map bosses which can help you win
- Fully-working and merciless AI
- Dynamic randomly generated player spawn points and freedom in choosing the spot for your base
- Dynamic map environment that affects units and gameplay - weather changes and randomly generated neutral units
- Strategic gameplay
- Build bases with formidable defenses
- Superweapons and abilities that can be cast anywhere on the map with unlimited range
And much, much more...

    i think the game is bit too slow at the moment, in the beginning you have only 1 worker and need at least 80-95 food to get started
    Also training troops is worthless unitl you break the treeline
    Maybe it could be all faster if workers costed 1food and lumbermill gave some food(5?)

    As Arrr stated, the game is too slow paced. In the beginning, it's only a matter of harvesting wood. Basically, you watch your peon only and that is not entertaining of course. The game itself is, as the name suggests, just cutting down some trees until you reach others. The game heavily lacks excitement and interest, you must make it more amusing.
    For now, it is set to needs fix.

    The gameplay is very simple because you only must to harvest wood for a very long time.
    And i think you will lose a lot of players on this map because is only trees no gold no battle but i like the idea with the harvest tree but i want to be some gold items or gold mines to establish your base and kill the enemy. Because only peon fight is not so good .

    But i like the idea. Good Luck
    Vote: Need some updated

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. The map has been updated according to it as much as I thought fit.

    But no, gold mines or gold won't be added. I've found another way around that problem in today's update (v3.0).

    Gave it shot in multiplayer. This is an outline of the game:

    The game was lame and boring all the way through. It took ages to reach enemy players. Even when I cleansed the way with sappers, it was all an "attack and retreat" style. By the time one managed to defend himself from an attack, the attacker would have already trained a new army due to the long time it takes for going from one base to the other. It would've been funnier and more challenging if sappers could get on the zeppelin so that we could actually ambush each other with bombers and totally screw up one another's base.]

    The variety of units is just too low. We simply spammed sappers and firefighters + some raiders if we wanted to ensnare. Grunts were an optional. Honestly the game requires more units for more synergies and tactics. We ended up quitting the game because we got tired of playing after half an hour. Also check out for hotkeys because they don't seem to work properly.

    For now, the map is reset to needs fix.

    Aa ok i was thinking to have some others resourses to buid your base . I know the gameplay is only to harvest wood and fight and i don't download the update but go exactly what you want.

    tried the 5.0, the game is much more interesting
    More choices, can either build up your base and use zeppellins to attack later on or "rush" to the enemy with clockwerks and proxy logging camps.
    would approve with 3/5, interesting gameplay and concept

    Daffa the Mage Review on Deforestation

    Presentation
    I must say it's done quite well, though more aethistic can be added to give more appealing information to the viewers to encourage downloads. I recommend using Kobas Map Description Template or Vengeancekael's Map Description Generator to archive this, the best though is using BB Codes (Check Sunken City by Spasorc) or Images (Check Genesis by Vengeancekael).
    2/3


    Design
    Well designed, the icons and models suit perfectly with the theme.
    Clockwerk Goblin has an error in the tooltip. It says "Detonate after a certain period of time", but in truth it has ability to detonate on user's command and has no time limit.
    9/12


    Gameplay
    The progress is slow with AI, at least those AI looks so slow in attacking. Though they bite me good.
    For some reason the gameplay lags, at least presumably after upgrading those Grunts and Raiders with that potion thingy, or the AI attacks.
    ---
    The attack method is a little slow, the Zeppelin is limited to 1 and only has 6 cargo, which means it's next to impossible to launch a surprise full scale assault.
    Again, the gameplay lags and this time it's unclear what drives the lag in, possibly as AI starts their assault movements.
    10/15


    Details Spoilers Alert!
    So okay, the first run ;
    Build a base as I'm amazed with the well-made design. In the other hand, notices AI didn't attack for quite a good amount of time. To follow up, I decided to hunt the tree in the middle and destroyed it, then the AI starts biting me but suddenly the lag came in and ruins the fun.
    The second run ;
    Same as first, except that I decided to focus on defenses until the lag hits in. This time, AI is yet to hit my base.

    All in all, I enjoyed this map and it's features, but the lag kills the gameplay the moment it pops. I hope the matter can be investigated. Once the lag matter is discovered and taken care of, this can be approved.


    FINAL SCORE : 21/30
    RATING : 3.5/5
    VOTING FOR : Needs Fix/Approval

    I know about the lag but unfortunately I don't have any idea what's causing it. I would be glad if anyone who had experience with this problem could share some info about this. It seems only to happen when there is AI.

    Is the AI made using Jass or using AI Editor?

    Visuals
    The visuals in this is fantastic.The models and UI fit perfectly with the map.You really did a great job with the visuals on this map,very great.There isn't much to be done with the terrain due to the nature of the map,however you did manage to make some parts different and look better


    Gameplay
    The gameplay is very slow but it feels different due to there being only one resource.As the result,the combat also takes much longer and is quite hard to do due the dense woods and limited transport.The upgrades are pretty cool and though not all of them are completely new,they still have great use and fit in with the theme.The unique creature is also a nice touch,it gives the players a little goal to reach for.The lag bug needs to be fixed,since it's a vital error.I'm no expert in AI,so I can't help unfortunately.I suggest getting aid from someone who has great knowledge in the subject


    Overall and Verdict
    The map is interesting and unique.It's not for everybody however,you must be patient when playing this map since it's slow paced.It's still fun though,especially if you would like to sit back and calmly play ,even it's mostly cutting trees xD.I rate
    4/5 but due to the lag Ill have to say Needs Fix

    Fixed the AI and a bunch of trigger leaks. The map should run much smoother now.

    Map follows the rules, map approved. Quite unique and entertaining. My personal user rating is 4.

    I don't know if it's greatly balanced, but it seems even.
