    As you can see, the last objective is to modify the campaing with this new techtree. But I want to free a Modify Melee map with this enhancements too. I want to appoint that:

    -Heroes meant to live forever, when defeated, they stay in the ground they fall for a lot of time -180 to 360 seconds- and then back to the action.
    -Altars are meant for Powerful global magics and special upgrades. Only 1 Altar-type can be made in the whole game
    -A test map is Attached, so you can test by yourselves. I Highly recommend you to use "Warpten" for a fast build
    -While I just show you the Humans Techtree, I use ideas for 4 main races. The others I have 50% of work done, so ideas and help is appreciate. I read you guys, good day

    I like many of the ideas there, I myself add a few units to my games. The real challenge, I find, is to make a unit that is needed. Most of the races have almost all the bases covered, so the extra units need to be extra fun with some new purpose. If the archers, crossbowman, and rifleman stats are too similar, there is no point unless just the fun factor. One should be the fastest at movement, another at damage, and another at attack speed maybe? Stuff like that.

    I play mostly orc, so I added a few units so far in my games:
    Orc:
    - Orc Warlock (from the campaign, changed some stats and it has Firebolt and Monsoon) - the orcs don't really have a pure offensive caster, I made Monsoon duration shorter and so on
    - Orc Necromancer (copy from Undead) - in my D&D campaign world I have used for years, the orcs utilized the undead so I ported it over with the upgrades too, and used Drak'something as the model, made a little more expensive than for Undead, kind of fun going Headhunters/Necros as your ground forces keep getting remade lol
    - Dwarven Evoker (for Human) - this guy is a cool little dwarven model that needed love, he casts Firebolt and can upgrade to Web and Silence, as the humans didn't have a ensnare kind of thing for cheap troops... made the durations shorter so to keep balanced, especially silence (7 sec for everyone), he's a bit slower and has armor and a hammer for melee...

    Ideed, that's a challenge! Yeah, actually many o the units are upgrades from the first ones, with more Damage/Defense/Armor/Skills/Attack speed/Move spped/etc. If the unit cost more or the requeriments for develop was more, it meant to be more effective.


    Great ideas! I really like them and i's actually use them later on. I likes to do Sub-factions for each main races, Warlocks and Necromancers will show for sure. But for now I need ideas for canonical Thrall's Horde, 'cause the main idea is to use them in an Enchanced version of the main Campaing.

    I like that idea.
    Btw, I just add my "Playground test map" so you can test by yourself the Techtree system. It just start with 1 worker, to build the rest from scrath. Excuse the filesize, meant to be for test

    You left some terms untranslated in your original post.

    Night Elf:
    Forestfriend: Gives some Night Elf units unique abilities when near trees (removed when the unit is out of range of a tree).
    * Forestwalk: Unit can move through trees.
    * Tree Cover: Unit gains Evasion.
    * Ambush: Units gains 24-hour Shadowmeld.
    * Barkskin: Unit gains armor.

    Orc:
    Arena: Building that loads up to four units and gives them increased stats (attacks, attackspeed, HP...) the longer they're inside (and automatically ejects them when fully upgraded), upgraded amount every tick increases with more units.

    Horde Is Family: A passive buff that activates when units of different races are in proximity to each other.

    Shaman Trance: Causes the Shaman to channel and cast his spells on random targets with greatly decreased cooldowns until his mana runs out.

    Altar Spells: Can load Shamans to decrease spell cooldown/manacost.
    * Sky Wrath: Causes a map-wide Monsoon with reduced damage.
    * Earth Wrath: Causes a map-wide Earthquake with reduced damage.
    * Wind's Blessing: All your units move faster for a short while.
    * Eyes of the Wind: Reveals the entire map for a few seconds.
