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

WARNING: don't play on low-texture setting, since the icons get ¨corrupted¨.
This issue will be fixed after the contest poll is finished.

The is an altered melee game where you can play as the Emerald Nightmare faction.
Besides the new units and gameplay, the faction has fully customised aesthetics: meaning
every model, texture, icon and music has been changed to give a truly immersive experience.

( The map is only playable on Reforged with HD settings enabled )

The project itself is an entry for the Techtree Contest #14

Lore:
The idea of the Emerald Nightmare is taken directly from the official Warcraft lore.
The Nightmare was mentioned and appeared throughout most WoW expansions.
Its full manifestation was best seen in the Legion expansion's Raids and Dungeons.

The Nightmare represents the Old God corrupted Emerald Dream (a realm of nature magic).
In the heart of this corruption lies Il'gynoth a creation of the Old Gods. Your goal will be to
spread the Nightmare beyond the Dream by corrupting your enemies and Azeroth herself...

Unit models, textures and icons were done by me, with some edits of original
icons and generous use of official blizzard art assets (mostly hearthstone).

Huge Thanks to the Hive community for tips and support regarding modelling and texturing!

    P.S. I will upload most of the assets I deem good enough to hive soon enough (this map isn't 150MB for no reason after all).

    Make sure to let Malmgrev know you are releasing your assets for the Emerald Nightmare. According to his posts, he is making an emerald nightmare campaign, so your stuff might save him time he would otherwise use to make on his tech-tree.

    Just to let you know, the icons in this map don't work and bug out if Texture quality is set to low in the settings just an FYI :) Great map otherwise. Found the Emerald Nightmare to be particularly strong vs Human and weaker against Orc but it might just require different tactics.

    UPDATE regarding icons:
    You are right, the icons need to be saved in a different way, but it will increase their file size sadly.
    This means I'll need to update my icon's template I posted on Hive.
    Thanks for the info mate!

    I might make a gameplay video after the contest, and redo some aspects of the map...
    Have found 1 minor bug already: dryad has mana, while she shouldn't -.- for for contests sake I won't change it now.

    Regarding balance, the idea is to go for Tree form against melee builds, with some Aspect (ultimate ancients) to tank the damage. At the same time use Feralkins and spider druids from range (or blink in to snipe casters).
    If anyone thinks Dragons are OP, just check the DoT of Corrisive Breath from Chimeras.

    That makes sense I suppose, I wasn't able to get one of the aspects up in time before the fight and my melee didn't last long against the Tauren, so I guess it was poor tactics on my part. I do like all the new spells though for sure.

    A very nice entry :)

    It is also worth mentioning that while Corrosive Breath does have the parameters for Damage Over Time, it doesn't actually do anything - it seems like it was intended to do DoT at some point, but for the final cut it doesn't.
