Destiny Battle v0.21i

Submitted by AdamMighty
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
~See website for most recent change logs~

Due to interest, I am posting a version up here for download.


Destiny Battle is a Hero Siege map oriented around teamwork and skill. Unlike the others however, Destiny Battle incorporates many RPG-like features and randomization to make each game different. Version v0.20j Includes..

- 30 Heroes, custom designed, all with custom spells and abilities. Each features their own strengths and weaknesses which must be carefully used with your teammates.

- Several Feats, which can be trained to make your hero more suited to your play style.

- Hundreds of custom items, all carefully designed, many with scripted effects. The Rarity Tier system ensures that each rare item drop is exciting and unique. Also includes rare sets, that can be gathered to further increase the power with set bonuses.

- Scrolls which drop during the game which teach your hero new skills and spells, making your hero your own creation.

- Currently, v0.20j includes twenty-five levels, many with custom objectives and devious traps to test your mettle.

- A unique bonus system which rewards good cooperation and good play. Saved an ally by healing them with a clutch heal? Thats a bonus!

- A custom weather system that can either bolster or hinder you. Beware the rainstorms that make you suffer miss chances, but welcome the Healing Winds that grants bonus regeneration. Over 20 different weathers!

- A few various soundtracks make important moments even more exciting.

- Auto-balancing difficulty that adjusts to the amount of players you have. Only four people? No problem! Got a whole crew? The game will adjust itself.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

WHAT WILL THE FUTURE VERSIONS CONTAIN?

Companionships - Establish bonds with other players that will grant bonuses while near each other and unlock hidden quests... as well as change the ending of the game.

City Building - Build unique buildings at building plots to ensure victory!

Fully scripted Dialog for Story Mode - Containing branching story paths for a unique experience each time.

More Heroes, More Items, and even more devious monsters and bosses.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

So you think you have what it takes to defeat Lord Adomach? Go ahead, take a few of your closest companions and challenge him and his enemy hordes.

RECOMMENDED PLAYERS: 4-8.
AVERAGE PLAYTIME: 30m-3h (!)
DIFFICULTY: Hard
**Please Note: Destiny Battle is very resource intensive. Slower computers may have trouble running it.**

I hope you enjoy my creation as much as I have enjoyed making it. If you have any comments, concerns, or pesky bug reports, I welcome any comments/criticism on my official forums at http://wc3destinybattle.freeforums.org .

*!* Important: Destiny Battle is Open Source, meaning the map is not protected, and you can look/learn from it. HOWEVER, please do not take this as an open invitation to delete my name and claim it as your own. I worked hard on this map for your enjoyment, and I take plagerism seriously. Thanks! *!*

Cheers!
Arathil

13:39, 30th Oct 2008 VGsatomi: very decent defense map. This genre of map is always fun to play with a group. This map doesn't tweak or balance its self to suit the number of players present, which i saw as a big minus. Terrain is decent, and hero...

    Oh I remember the "Schematics" ability, I have been playing for 10 rounds and nothing dropped for me. What is that ability anyways?

    What was supposed to happen, I think, was that he would be able to find 'schematics' for epic new defenses to build as drops from defeated enemies. But it was never finished, so it does nothing.

    Full disclosure: That thing is getting the axe. Hard. His whole ability list is changing, too; except maybe for Mystic Towers, since I like the idea of buff-casting artillery like that. I am still in flux on what to replace everything with, but it's a no-brainer to me that "Blade Tower" and "Barricade" -- which were just placeholder 'abilities' that unlocked new structures in his build menu -- are getting knocked out, too. Whether I stick with a traditional build system, or make a triggered batch that makes a dummy unit to build them, or what, I still don't fully know. But I'm gonna have fun giving him a full makeover.

    Correct. I checked the code for them... or the lack thereof. "Build Schematic" was never finished. Neither was the Illusionist's ultimate that was supposed to "create a new victory condition for the current level". Though considering the fact that most players in a decent-sized game don't get to see their Ultimate anyway, it'd be hard to notice this at first. There are far more ultimates that DO work than those that don't, though. I'm hoping that, by the time I'm done, everything will be in working order. I've had to basically rebuild the map from the ground up in some cases; namely, I couldn't load up v0.21i in the editor -- or I could, but when I did, all of the custom object editor data was GONE, except for one spell (that being "Gaia's Might"). This has been one heck of a ride. ;)

    I'm glad to see you are still working on my old map and I'm truly humbled that folks still have an interest in it after such a long time. Hope all is well with everyone who still enjoys the game - maybe I'll see you guys online someday with WC3 Reforged? ;)

    Nothing would please me more. :) I heard Reforged is scheduled to drop sometime in December 2019. I'll no doubt be buying it, because it looks to be the closest thing to Warcraft 4 we'll ever get.

    As for my end...... heh. I admit... I've been really off-and-on with this whole thing. There's so much I want to do. So. Much. Plus I just got finished with another round of College finals... just got one more to go, but for now I have the whole holidays to work on DB. REALLY looking forward to that. XD I've already successfully implemented a new equipment system, based on another Hive user's work called "The_Witcher"; I intend to give him full credit for that, natch. I just had to finagle it to make it work outside of Jass NewGen, because third-party tools don't play nice with the new, updated World Editor.

    By the way, it's great to see you again, Arathil! Here is a fresh link to access my Discord server, in case you want to join in:
