Desert Ant 1.00 [MUI]

Submitted by redscores
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is the Contest Spell for the S&S Contest.

It is completely MUI and leakless.

The Spell unleashes thorns which come out of the earth in intervals and each thorn deals damage and causes bleedings, 15 damage on impact and a dot which deals 5 damage per second.


CHANGED THE EFFECT (not the spikes).

    The triggering could be improved, for example it would be better if you use a formula for the multi-level instead of if-then-else and you could maybe nullify these handle arrays at the end of the spell, apart from that I found nothing wrong in the code.

    There is not enough documentation and also the tooltip give to less informations. The icon fit the spell very well. This spell nearly fit to all maps.

    But still your spell is really nice made, good job. I can just recommend to use this spell.


    Advice: If you didn't understood my rating or if you maybe have questions because you don't know how to fix bugs or leaks etc. You can always send a private message to me. I will answer as soon I got time.

    Well not the finest idea, but still good...
    Now i think you should replace the special effect of dust to real dust not volcano dust cause it reduced my fps when i casted 2-3 of spell instances on the screen.
    Anyway nice spell, keep the work on, and please make the whole map visible it would be much easier if the map would be exposed(i had to hunt for creeps)...
    EDIT:
    Also multi level spell would be nice(though i can see the spell settings it would be easier for newbies).

    When I tested it there are some instances that a unit that got hit by the thorns had late damage reaction. Other than that its a good spell. ^^

    I suggest replacing the volcano dust effects with:
    Abilities\Weapons\AncientProtectorMissile\AncientProtectorMissile.mdl
    or to put it simply the Ancient Protector missile effect, it reduced my fps only when i casted it 8-10 times on the screen.
    I didn't see any more flaws then i said before, but again this is my opinion.

    Yeah as i said on the contest, that volcano effect is to flashy, and laggy. The impale dust, or model that Kingz suggested(the missile - rock) would do the job just fine =)

    Otherwise its a nice spell, i like the bleeding.
