Gems of Unification v13.02.26

Submitted by yuvixadun
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
[​IMG]


Inside this game a plot slowly unfolds around certain gems that carry a great power. A power that has to be kept safe, in your hands.



Introduction

Gems of Unification (GoU) is Role Playing Game (RPG) which can (and should) be played in multiplayer. I've worked quite a lot on this map and hope you'll enjoy it.

This map is currently still in heavy development, but playable. Of the three acts the first two are largely done. Expect this map to be updated a lot over the coming months.

If you find any bugs or have suggestions to the map don't hesitate to contact me by posting in this thread. Together we can create a new epic map!



Features
  • 1 Class (explained below)
  • 39 Abilities
  • 150+ Items
  • 8 Birthsigns
  • Threat and AI System
  • Equipment System, items influence your hero in many ways!
  • Attachment System, items are displayed on your hero
  • Save/Load System, keep your hero with you!
  • Indoor terrains, varying from homes to caves to dungeons!
  • Combat Text and Casting Bar Systems
  • Epic dungeon's and outdoor bosses!



One hero, all classes!

Pick up your weapon of choice, learn your own spells and do the quests you like. Your choices determine your class, allowing a whole new kind of customization! So will picking up a bow for instance make your hero a ranged damage dealer since bows provide a ranged attack and a damage bonus. Together with the ability to pick up any spell you like (though there is a maximum of spells you can pick) you can create your own class! Any combination is possible!​

FAQ

What is this game about? What does RPG mean?
RPG stands for Role Playing Game, which in this context means you play a character that explores the world of Gems of Unification. You're pretty free to choose which kind of character you want to be.

In which aspects does this game differ from other RPG's, like Gaia's Retaliation?
I'll be honest, in a lot of aspects it is the same, it's just fresh, new content. In what aspects it differs are these; class customization, you don't pick a pre-made class with certain abilities but you're free to choose how you want your character to be.

The game crashes!
Make sure you have texture quality on highest, else the game can crash. Next to that, suggested resolution screen is 1920x1080. Small resolution and graphic can broke game or improperly display data. If the game still crashes after trying this try running Warcraft III in openGL by adding -opengl to your startup exe.

Help, I can't save in singleplayer! Why is this?!
In order to prevent people from cheating their character up I've disabled saving in singleplayer.

My save code doesn't work.
Make sure you're using the same playername you used while you saved your character.

Restore my code!!
I won't sorry, you'll have to level up again.

I've noticed a serious bug, where can I report this?
You can report this by replying to the uploaded map at the Hive Workshop or in the post on the forums there I have for this map.

Your map sucks!!1
Okay... Play something else than.

    theres a huge bug on quests, when you dont follow the correct order of people to talk to, for example, when you dont talk to your mom, and just talked directly to doctor.

    it happens when you load, because you dont start at the starting point, but on another place

    Could you be a little bit more specific on the bug? When did it happen, with which spell?

    Quests aren't saved with your character; when you load your character all quests are reset. This might sound like a negative feature but it allows you to regain all that xp, gold and skill points from quests.

    In addition to that; yes some quests are chained with eachother but I've created the quests in such a way that when you enter a village you start on all new chains (or can jump into one).

    the heal spell doesnt work, bought it from doctor, then tried to use in battle, my hands glow, but no heal happened. on the other hand, the rejuv spell works fine

    following what i said about quests, i ended up having an infinity reward bug because i skipped the first part of accepting the main mom quest. i spawned to the night elf village when i load then walked back to the doctor and the main quest was updated but it was not in the quests menu, just updated, then i go back to my house, the bandits were there, mom was already kidnapped, when its just my first time to visit there after loading

    so the next part was to ask the inn keeper, i asked him then cilck the accept quest button, got 100 xp as reward, press the button again and got 100 xp, and i can do this infinitely. so thats the bug.

    also the sister quest doesnt appear anymore, i think its connected to the bug i just mentioned, and the fact that i talked to the sister in night elf village before the one in bridgewater

    Well if it's working correctly your summon spell should disappear once you've summoned it and you should see the attack "spell" for the hawk, so they do overlap but you never have both abilities active at the same time.

    Okay, that isn't suppose to happen :p

    Your hero skill points you mean? That's not intended, but I might enable that in the future.

    Thanks :) Glad you like it.



    For those interested; I'm pushing out an update on coming Monday that will address the issues so far.

    1- First 2 healing spells you get has the same shortcut,
    2- You can save the signs but when you load you wont see the effects untill you die,
    3- The threat system needs some work, our tank couldn't get the aggro from me even thought he had first 2 tanking abilitys and used taunt all the time.If there is more than 3 enemys it gets really hard for tank to hold aggro since taunt doesn't really generate any threat points(even if its doing that , its really low) its just keeping the aggro for a couple seconds. I dont know if there are any aoe tanking abilitys (because we were only at the second city) but you kinda need to make them reachable earlier in the game , so tank can have more purpose instead just right clicking and loosing the aggro.
    Other than that really nice map , i was really bored of Gaias so its feels good to have somethnig new like it:p

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Oh you're right, will be fixed next update.

    I'll look into this, should work though when I look at the code. Will do some testing.

    You're not the first one saying this; I'll increase aggro generation for tanks.
    There are some AoE aggro abilities in the map (Initimidation Shout & Shield Pound) but like you said, they're not available early on.

    Thanks :)
