FrozenFire's Addon Race

Submitted by buns_and_nuts
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Version 1.1 is out. Now with AI and a bunch of bugFix.


This is a race add-on pack made by me. Currently it has only the Naga race which is fully completed with new heroes, units, spells. I plan to have future versions complete with 3 extra races and additional units/skills/upgrades/heroes to the 4 vanilla races of Warcraft.

Races are designed to be as balanced as possible according to the original 4 Warcraft 3 races. The design style ( e.g , Light melee, Mill Unit, 2 Casters, 1 antimagicunit.. etc etc ) are also followed closely retain the original play style of Warcraft3. Abilities are made with as little repeat as possible, the current version have almost no repeat of ability on the new races.

Balancing is still at early stages and I do hope to get more feedback to get it to be more balanced. Development is still ongoing on this project, I do hope I could get extra hands if anyone would like to help out. Thanks

Msg to moderator : One full race is completed and playable. I hope this is not considered work-in-progress.


INSTRUCTIONS:
( this race pack requires Patch 1.24 or above. )
Extract the EXE file and put it at the Warcraft 3 root folder.

To Play as Naga race. select Night Elf race and set handicap to 90%

    This is an ok attempt at creating a balanced Naga race, you should spend some more time on presentation though. Generally you order units from left to right by overall cost and complexity, for instance the smaller harvesting turtle should be at the 0,0 postion. The Turtle model used for a building was also death to my sense of immersion - contact Moyack about some custom models.

    As for unit balance it was pretty good, I liked the passive ability that changed unit attack damage based on the opponent.

    I'll vote for approval, keep at it.

    Thanks for the very constructive comments.

    Ah . I never thought about the button position thing at all. Somehow missed the fact of that completely. I'll definitely fix that on the next version.

    The next version will have a completed MELEE AI. In fact it is already completed few hours ago. Did a trial run with a normal orc AI. on 4 matches it won 2. But there are some hero skill that need manual tweaking so AI will actually utilize it.

    Also, sorry about the turtle. will contact this moyack guy ASAP. I do hope someone could lend a hand on the turtle hatchery model.
     
  4. Maby a large turtle shell with eggs inside? (for the hatchery building)

    I was wondering, does this work on battle.net, or only on single player? That would be cool to be naga on battle.net... Hehehe, people would be so jealous. :cool:

    Battle.net or not, I vote for APPROVAL...

    it does work on battle.net if both players have it. Although some ppl have warned me that Warden ( google it if you dont know , it's blizzard's little pet ) does check for MPQ changes and might ban you mistaken you for cheating, but I've tried it on bnet several times. Nothing happen.

    I dont htink this needed Windows Vista. I just put it there. coz I'm using Windows Vista

    if the user is creating a map and he is using this program will it work ? if yes (I haven't downloaded yet , just guessing) you could make it in a way so that the user will be able to select a race ,a handicap (100 ,90 ,80 ,70 ,60 ,50) I know that what I am asking might be too hard (espetially for the race selection part but if you can or if you want to try to make sth like this on v.2
    ........
    if not plz make it work at least.

    ^^ will vote after testing it
    Edit:
    nice ideas 4/5
    try in the next version to add more stuff or do what I have written above
    Edit 2nd:
    is coral gateway a mode which doesnt exist in warcraft or is it sth like a model with atachments? can you tell me what is it coz I want to have it in one of my maps

    Played it. It was pretty cool.

    However, the naga mirror spell is to strong. (Attached replay, no cheats used)

    I cant see the replay
    this program can "destroy" some stuff ex advance (food limit etc) options or even maps try playing DOTA (defence of the ancients (download it in epic war... the lastest version(6.68c))) try to fix that

    I don't get what you mean by destroying some "ex advance" . Can you explain?

    This Addon shouldn't run in concurrent with DOTA or any custom map . It WILL screw things up. However, I don't see the point of running this Addon in concurrent with Dota.

    For some reason my WC3 says it can't find the map duskwood :O .
    I can assure you the map's there. I just check. Any reason why this happens?
    Could it be I have to put the map at a specific location?

    EDIT: I try playing a game on Duskwood myself , recorded a replay and somehow it played. Something must be wrong somewhere.
