drol's TD v1.20

Submitted by yuvixadun
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
drol's TD
a robust, basic and fun tower defense

v1.20 release




[​IMG]Introduction
Worked on this map for a couple of weeks. It's a tower defense map, quite like others but very solid and fun. I would like to have some feedback on it. Its pretty balanced if I say so myself, so check it out!





[​IMG]Gameplay
The objective of the map is to prevent waves of creeps from running to the portal. You can use towers to kill, slow, stun or in any other way stop them.
The main thing you'll be doing is building towers and upgrading them to keep them good enough to survive the next wave.​

/Fire/Astral/Metal/Arcane
Towers 171

    Awesome Map!

    Just a request:

    I was playing with my brother and sister and when we finished the game we were wondering who actually killed the most units. Would it be possible to have a kill counter of some kind added in later versions?

    Arcane seems kind of weak, it doesn't have a lot of AoE. Would reducing the damage of Timevault's ability and making it a small AoE overpower it too much?

    Arcane does have a chain lightning sort of ability on Cursed Elf and Wicked One which you could see as an AoE ability.

    I'm thinking about tweaking the Timevault, it just has one ability now and I want to add a special new one.

    I have one suggestion:

    If you want to fix that Huge map issue you have, export your trigger/object/sound/import data and go to the World editor, create a smaller map, import all the data, then go back to the map, copy the required terrain, the cameras/regions, then paste them onto your new map.

    I don't know if the Huge map thing was intended, but just in case it wasn't I'm just trying to help :)

    Happy mapping :)

    I'm taking that as a: "Oh thank you Magtheridon96! You are a beacon of light in the dark abyss that is my life! Here: The respected user award, 10000 rep, and Justin Beiber's corpse!"

    LOL sorry for the spam :p

    Btw, just one thing I was wondering: Did you code this TD in JASS/vJASS, GUI, or a Combination? I'd really like to know out of curiosity :p

    It has 0 lag, so I'm guessing It has very few BJs and minimal leaks ==> JASS/vJASS
    But, the small map-size might also be one of the factors affecting performance.
    Same goes for the number of units/doodads/.. any handle
    There's no way to tell :p

    Well I'm thankful for your suggestion ;)

    Coded this map in vJass entirely and reduced leaks to the minimum (I think).

    Though the map-size and number of units are somewhat low at the start till around wave 100, after that it increases quite some and especially at the waves 200 till 210 a lot of creeps are over the map. So at that point players with low end computers may see some lag because of the amount of units on the screen.

    Player's shouldn't see any lag due to bad coding (at least thats what I aimed for)
