    Hello!
    This is my current and probably my last map project. As this is my last wc3 map that I'll create, I will put all of my effort to this project. This is definitely a pure ORPG map with up to 10 players! it's also including save/load system and other feature that ORPG map should have, plus each heroes excusively have their own voice clip from Dissidia Final Fantasy itself to make heroes more alive rather than silence.

    Because of my dear to Final Fantasy series, I'd love to create an epicly huge 480x480 map featuring a well made pleaces from Final Fantasy series to make you nostalgia with the old FF times! (Party ATB feature outcluded)


    • CURRENT PLAYABLE HEROES:

    - Final Fantasy I : Garland
    - Final Fantasy II : Firion, Emperor Mateus
    - Final Fantasy III : Cloud of Darkness
    - Final Fantasy IV : Cecil
    - Final Fantasy V : Exdeath
    - Final Fantasy VI : Terra
    - Final Fantasy VII : Cloud, Sephiroth
    - Final Fantasy VIII : Squall, Ultimecia
    - Final Fantasy IX : Zidane, Kuja
    - Final Fantasy X : Tidus, Jecht
    - Final Fantasy XII : Gabranth


    • AREA INFO:

    In the beginning of game after player pick selection, player can choose 1 of 3 starting area so each player won't stuck up in one city all together when the game start. There is currently 2 huge island with 5 diffrent region (around middle map is still empty, I planned to make it for Mysidia (FF II), Rabanastre (FF XII), or a Dark Hole area that suck up everything whatever it comes near that (Auto-Dead whenever player enter that region)
    As it's said above, this map is featuring a different pleaces from Final Fantasy series that an FF fan definitely know.
    Final Dungeon is usually a big and long dungeon that kinda labyrinth like in original FF I, II and III with 2 times powerful creeps and a powerful version of Villain Heroes* as a BOSS inside of it.


    • CREEPS DIFFICULTY:

    I have my own formula development for every creeps depends of it's type. Creeps here are not weak either not imbalancely strong. They do also cast spells and have passive ability. Use potion whenever battle them!
    - Normal Creeps : Normal. Their signature color is yellow. (Can be found everywhere on World Map.)
    - Dungeon Creeps : 2 Times Stronger than Normal Creeps. Their signature color is orange. (Can be found only on Dungeon/Final Dungeon)
    - Mini-BOSS : 3 Times Stronger than Normal Creeps. Their signature color is light red. (Can be found in Dungeon area. In Final Dungeon, they usually placed 1 in each floor/area.)
    - BOSS : 4 Times Stronger than Normal Creeps. Their signature color is red. (Only can be found at last area of Final Dungeon. Yes, the stronger version of Villain heroes!)


    • SCREENSHOT:

    Here is each heroes screenshot, it took me about half a day total to take a good shot and decorate them using photoshop, enjoy the view! :p

    1. Which 1 of 3 Loading Screen below is fit more better for this map?


    - Option A: Heroes Loading Screen
    [​IMG]

    - Option B: Terra Loading Screen
    [​IMG]

    - Option C: Ultimecia Loading Screen
    [​IMG]

    - Option D: Another (say your idea for the Loading Screen)


    2. What kind of terrain is you wanted to see on this map?


    - Option A: Simple Minimalist
    (Terrain will be Simple Minimalist style like in pleaces/heroes screenshot above, can decrease in-game lag rather than Extra Detailed one)

    - Option B: Extra Detailed
    (Terrain will be detailed, but may causing extra lag for average PC/Laptop)


    3. Should I add Unlock Camera system?


    - Option A: Yes, you should!

    - Option B: No, I hate that.



    If you have an ideas, critics, or anything to say, don't hesitate to drop me a comment. Thank you.

    Looking pretty good from the screen shots!
    Could you please add Vivi from FFIX to this?^^

    You didnt write anything about the battles. Will they be just Warcraft style, or more like in Final Fantasy games?

    @Kala: thank you. ^^ well, I can't add Vivi since he isn't added to dissidia itself and I haven't any voice clip for him.
    I think random battle aren't fit well for some reason, so battle will be definitely like in original wc3 game which are u can directly battle whenever u meet up with your enemies.

    @Miss_Foxy: aww thank you. ^^ yes, I do use imported model for several creeps, but I mainly use original wc3 model for creeps to spend more map size for later use. Optional BOSS like Ultima Weapon definitely will have their own original model.

    @bloodbath5557: which part is amazed you? lol

    @nightblade: thank you. ^^ of course I will. each of people support(s) do boost up my passion to finish this project. ;)

    Your presentation (screenshots etc) is VERY nice, I'll keep tabs on this :)
    Only thing I would suggest is putting the shots inside hidden tags as THAT many images might cause a few grumbles from slower computers/people with poor net access.

    thank you. :)
    1st time I post this was nobody give comment (because it's definitely 2am there while it's still afternoon here, forget about the time difference haha), I though nobody are interest with this project or something. but later several ppl do drop a comment and said this project is great. thats enough to encourage me. hahaha
    I see, I have several reason for not to hide the screenshot though. but if that so, I'll hide the screenshot later and adding more detail. lol

    wow thats really epic omg.

    but i have some suggestions!

    "I planned to make it for Mysidia (FF II), Rabanastre (FF XII), or a Dark Hole area that suck up everything whatever it comes near that (Auto-Dead whenever player enter that region"

    i think that would be pretty abundant though, since the first few times players enter and bam they die. and after the 2nd time they play that place would lose its purpose or maybe that area didnt have a purpose to serve in the first place. and would just be there to take up space.
    well at least thats what i think, but its its to be some visual purposes then well okay.

    and for your "questionaire"

    1. Which 1 of 3 Loading Screen below is fit more better for this map?

    well if you were to ask me i would personally prefer option A compared to the other 2 cus the other 2 just focus on one single character which isn't what dissidia is.

    BUT i have some suggestions for the loading screen though.


    1st suggestion
    [​IMG]well my reasoning behind this is because this is a really simple picture, yet it really brings out what dissidia is, which is epic. perhaps you could edit out the psp and the wordings there?


    2rd suggestion
    [​IMG] well i showed this because the picture shows the 2 sides "clashing" which is what dissidia is.

    and if you include my suggestions in the options i would prefer my first suggestion! it looks really cool!


    2. What kind of terrain is you wanted to see on this map?

    hmm i personally would prefer nice terrain and stuffs since to me final fantasy games are always so visually stunning.
    but then again since we only have around 8mb of space to work on, if you ask me between content or nice terrain, i would prefer content, but thats not to say totally not caring about terrain.
    cus from what i see a few of the best wc3 RPGS has really good terrain like
    - TKoK Eastern Kingdom
    - Gaias Retaliation( i this this map has the best terraining i have ever seen )
    - Dark Invasion 2

    3. Should I add Unlock Camera system?
    well i think this depends on the user, personally i dont like the camera locked on to my character, and my reasoning is because when your character moves really slowly and the camera moves at a slow rate too it makes things feel really dull and also a locked camera makes things feel really cramped.


    to end this off i think your map is really brilliant from the screenshots the models look stunning!

    wonder if you will implement more characters like those in dissidia 2? since then you can get their voice clips. i would totally look forward to Tifa if this is happening XD

    would you be able to compress that much import to make this playable on MP?

    and how about the copyright for those voices? if square finds out about this, they would surely try to bring this down... ^_^

    but nonetheless, GOOD LUCK! I'm also a dissidia fan!!!

    and please add the Duodecim characters (especially Lightning!!!)

    And oh, those models look really great! are those especially made for this project?

    for the load screen: I like the one on the post by JamZee

    for the terrain: Since the models are awesome, the terrain should also be detailed (if the map file size could stand it), coz on the screenies, the character models don't fit that much on the terrain...

    for the camera: I would prefer a locked camera since this is based on dissidia
