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.

    Ok so we played the new version with Vestra again. After I left it seems like he soloed it and found quite a few possible bugs. 4 to be exact. I'm not sure if he had the time to do it but I wanted to get this past you. I'll just quote what he said.

    Ok first bug:
    "one is something to do with the summon and loading, it fucks up sometimes and you lose your hero, summoning a bird again after that results in the same bug happening"

    Two:
    "two is backpacks fuck up sometimes and prevent you from saving"

    Three:
    "three is seal of vigor or whatever the 2k skill in the troll area that gives you 1% life leach is called: using it while attacking one of the new bosses that has a kind of thorns aura causes you to gain like 5k life, 11k on a crit. shits fucked up but the boss is easy anyway"

    And about the fourth one: I've been wanting to ask you to fix this one for quite a while but I always used to forget (sry for that :p). But I kind of hoped people, or even yourself would notice this and get it fixed =D. Well anyway since that hasn't happened, here it goes:

    "four is the enchantress bug, its still there
    i think if you finish the ragepaw quest before killing 4 herbalists (while having the herbalist quest) you can constantly finish the ragepaw one because the first trigger hasnt resolved
    so yeah, abuse that to 50 if you want, 50 is max level."
    I know he said that about abusing it to lvl 50 bacause like me he's probably tired of all these bugs since this is a great map.
    If you can find some time and fix these bugs it would be awesome if you also did a code wipe. Thanks.

    P.S. I quoted his words because it wasn't me who found them (the bugs) and I'm not sure what they are :))

    Noted, will be fixed in a future version (is quite some work).

    Not really clear what the bug is, but I'll look into the backpack system.

    Tried to reproduce by attacking Feral Swine with activating Seal of Vigor, works properly for me. How did you bug this?

    See the quick update of today :)

    I don't really understand. Is it really solved? Cause it doesn't say that in the update. Can you show me if I didn't see.
    P.S. sorry I'm not usually this stupid, not getting enough sleep lately :))

    Aw man I was going to send a pm just to be sure there would be no code wipe lol.
    I'll try reproduce that seal bug.

    Ok well I can replicate the bug easily, and stop it by dropping four of my items, that's all I've found so far it doesn't seem to be linked to any of my skills. I'll post my load here for you to tinker with. Use it with the name Vestra. Head to the quill boss, summon hawk if you want because that also gets the 5k heals per attack strangely enough so I imagine all allies would. Attack the boss and use seal.

    -load frJA-TIaa-hoK3-xkNO-YQNM-dRLB-zAm9-ksNy-wVzj-5bcY-cljs-EGCj-JgSn-e
    If it helps I got to 50 legit :D

    The backpack bug I mentioned is that I find certain slots, specifically the last four in the backpack to cause my save to bug. If I type -save it can show 'Your Code' or absolutely nothing. If I drop the items in those solts, I'm able to save again. I imagine its linked to certain items rather than the backpack itself. Specifically the Brigande Handguards, which also have a typo in their name, 'Brigade'

    Another bug is having The King boss cast dominion on you while you have Savage Energy. You gain 2 mana for each tick dominion does against I'm assuming the summoned hawk (which is out of range and takes no damage) but it may be the boss itself, I haven't tested it. So you effectively have near infinite mana for the duration of dominion.

    Killing allied centaurs/taurens gives you gold and xp. Also if you could assign a level range to them that would be great.

    Hydro jet and shield slam cause delay.

    Tried this map out several days ago, and I gotta say I love it. Love the character customization most of all. Loved it so much infact that I didn't mind the code wipe and started playing a new hero once 12.08.04 came out lol. And the storyline is intriguing and interesting to say the least; can't wait for the next part :)

    Have to report several bugs, though:

    1. The game sometimes won't let me save unless I pitch all the stuff in my backpack. Kinda sad, since some of those stuff are real tough to farm from the bosses. And even then, saving sometimes generates a code that does absolutely nothing when inputted in a new game.

    2. Got a bug with the Amethyst cleaning quest more than once. Not sure what triggers it, but at one time I had like, 20 Amethysts on the floor around the Archivist because he keeps on giving me one whenever I talk to him after killing the ghosts. Only way I was able to complete it was when I picked em all up and sold em downstairs to the innkeeper.

    3. When loading a hero in a new game, the birthsign symbol on the hero's character panel disappears, but the ability is still there.

    And a few suggestions:

    1. Perhaps you could add more weapon/armor shops in the towns? It somehow feels like the game eventually ends up dictating what your character will end up specializing in depending on the weapon drops one gets when playing (especially on solo LAN). Having shops that sell generic weapons even slightly better than the Lv1 ones sold at the first town could help a player maintain a hero's "chosen class" until he gets better stuff in Act II.

    2. Some very intimidating bosses with extremely good drops end up as pushovers, like the Skeleton King (kills himself more often than not by burning himself with his own Dominion, lol) and the Dragon Turtle (Hydro, Breath, Hydro, Breath, Hydro, and he's down to attack, attack, attack due to lack of mana). Maybe you could give them a bit more damage and toughen them up a bit more, or give them lower mana costs for their spells (turtle) or adjust their AI to fit their opponents (king casts dominion on himself if facing a melee opponent, for example).

    Will be crossing my fingers that there will be no code wipe next release lol.

    Sorry for the newb question again, but was it also intentional to not gain exp when killing creeps that has a chance to drop item for certain quests or triggers similar to that? Or what other situations makes killing something not gain exp?

    Man so many load bugs. Found another one where when i type the code nothing happens at all. It's so irritating. Can only load the previous one which is annoying cause my items were so much better on the current one :(

    Is it just me or does Healer get way too much threat? I was tanking Taskmaster as lvl 15 Tank (all points on str) had +50% threat for dmg on and used taunt.
    10 secs into the fight the healer lvl 9 came and 3 secs later i lost aggro....

    Yes this is solved.

    Ill look into it.

    I'll check this out tonight and see if it's easy fixable, else it will take some time.

    Okay, noted this issue. Will fix.

    Strange, sometimes it gets added with a small delay. All these things that are pointed out suggest something went wrong with the save/load again, mabye the OP limit again.
    Will see if its fixable in a short timeframe.

    I agree with you, weapons you find do frame your class somewhat early game. But just putting vendors everywhere makes obtaining items too easy. There are some vendors out there and there is always gambling. I think this way there is a sort of semi-solution to this, I don't want to spoil item drops by just making them buyable.

    EDIT: I'll probably (like you suggested) only add an additional vendor selling white (common) weapons in Windfell (Night Elf village).

    This is the plan for dungeon 3, I agree that up till now bosses haven't been really epic.
    The intention is that there won't be a code wipe anymore.

    Nope, but there is an experience cut-off, only creeps until 5 levels lower or higher grant experience.

    I'll look into this tonight, thought I had this kind of bugs fixed, maybe something slipped in last update.

    This probably is because of the stun this boss sometimes does (bash), this causes the tank to deal less damage because he's stunned. Healing does quite a low amount of threat, just 1/4th of the amount healed.

    That's something I wanted to mention also. The bash passive on most units is pretty ridiculous. A group of 6 orcs can end up completely stunlocking you but having it on two of the early bosses in the game makes things unmanageable for early teams. Maybe replace bash with knuckle punch on the ring leader and the taskmaster, then lower the duration of bash to .5 - 1sec on the orcs.

    As for the gear issue, perhaps use white items as an option for purchasable gear, and leave green and blue to drop pools. Allow players to at least have the opportunity to minorly improve themselves as they progress from town to town without farming for hours on mobs that might not even drop something close to their playstyle.

    Alright, that explains the Boss (even tough i remember him not stunning me at all). But i also lose the aggro at normal creeps, especially when there are like 3 creeps it becomes impossible to tank all of them.
    Intimidating Shout is totally useless as Threat generator (doesnt generate any??)

    Example Shout:
    Archer pulled a group of enemies, didnt deal any dmg yet. I use Shout and the creeps still attack the Archer. So either the threat "produced" by pulling creeps is higher than the threat produced by the shout, or shout doesnt produce any.

    About Taunt:
    Speaking about Logic: Taunt means i say "bad things" to enemies, so they come to hate me and attack me. So how come it only works on 1 enemy? Do i say his name when taunting so the others ignore it?
    Like:
    Me: "Hey Jimmy, the group of bandits u belong to is shit!"
    Jimmy: "Die, you basterd!"
    Bandits: "Hey, he said bad things about our group, but since he talked to Jimmy we dont care about it!"

    But i still like ur map :)

    I've got a fun idea: Instead of giving a character to every player in the beginning of the game, why not make models of a man and a woman to give players the freedom to choose whichever gender they want to play with. It seems like some people prefer to play a female character.

    P.S. Not pointing fingers... (but it's Vestra =D)

    You know what, fuck this map. I'm so goddamn tired of these fuckin code bugs. You never know when they work or if they ever will... Thought this was a decent map, but not only isn't it yet balanced, but the codes don't work either. So, peace out everyone.

    Agreed with the bash, I'll probably lower the duration.

    I'll increase threat generation of Intimidating Shout. I understand you logic concerning Taunt, but gameplay wise I won't change it. It's a magic world after all so normal "rules" don't have to apply :p

    Funny you point this out, this was the plan when I created this map at the start. I wanted to use a female model with a lot of animations (for each weapon type), however the one on the Hiveworkshop has weird attachement points making it unusable for wearing visual items. Thats why there is only a male model (sorry girls and girl-character-lovers).

    Yeah I know, my bad. Just got real mad when my load didn't work. Farmed so much to get a really op berserker type (2-handed) and i find out it doesn't load. I'm guessing maybe cause I picked up 1 item that dropped before I loaded him and the rest of the items I lost just cause of that one. Sigh... Hope next versions will not allow to pick up an item that dropped before load in the first place :)

    Currently working on an update solving some issues mentioned since last update.
    Could you PM me your username + loading code so I can debug what goes wrong?

    EDIT: Could reproduce the bug myself, debugging atm.
    EDIT2: OP limit again, WC3 is just coded so bad...
