HIGH ELVES V2.5
Created by Wa666r

[​IMG]
Map Info:

An alternate melee in my series of maps involving lore races from the Warcraft universe. This addition allows the players to explore and play as the graceful race of High Elves.

The High Elves, or the Quel'dori are an ancient race of elves with a thirst for magic. They obtain their powers from the magical Sunwells, which they hold sacred and guard heavily. Their race used to be just like the Night Elves, but just as the Night Elves have accepted the ways of safeguarding the forests, the Highborne accepted the powers of the Sunwell. During the War of the Ancients, the Highborne betrayed their brethren, and were exiled from the Night Elven lands. The High Elves use a combination of melee, ranged, and magic to bring the fight to the enemy. Through casting holy and arcanic magics the strength of these elves stays steady alongside their battle-ready front-line troops, who are willing to lay down their lives for the Sunwell and their kingdom.

[​IMG]
Features:

Play as a new race, and behold the tactics and abilities to utilize their various strategies to bring the fight to the enemy.

- 4 Custom Heroes: Guardian, Ranger Master, Heliomancer, and Saint.

- a list of new items reflecting the High Elven race.

- All custom units, including Rangers with the ability to rain flaming arrows; devastating the enemy ranks, or the Highborne, a soldier that can give mana to his kin; reinforcing the already powerful mages.

Some else stuff about map:

TO PLAY AS THE HIGH ELVES, CHOOSE HUMAN WHEN CHOOSING YOUR RACE.

Sunblessed: The High Elves, in my opinion, are known for their relation with the Sun. They are historically molded by the Sunwell itself; thus I wanted to show their blessing within this race. To start, the High Elves have a racial bonus called "Blessing of the Sun" which is a very powerful ability which increases hit points by 150, and reduces all damage taken by 20%. but this ability only activates during the day, so the High Elven army is much weaker during the night. Along with the Blessing of the Sun, High Elves also only regenerate hit points during the day - while the light shines upon them. As a final statement to their beloved Sun, most abilities of the High Elves gain a "Sunblessed" version of their ability during the day. These abilities are significantly stronger and much more effective as a whole.
[​IMG]
Weakness of Night: While the Sun works as as a very powerful source of power for the High Elves, night serves a crutch. During the night, the health regeneration ceases, along with less hit points and damage resistance that was granted from the Blessing of the Sun ability. Also, most High Elven units and buildings have severely reduced sight range, making scouting and defense much more difficult. This race's strongest tower, Sun Tower, only works during the day, making it nearly useless at night. Luckily, I implemented a Sunstone that can be used to raise the Sun for a short time

Play as my other races:

    This looks really nice, I can't wait to play it.
    EDIT:
    Ok, I played it. And thats not just nice, that is amazing!!! +2 rep. 5/5. Easily the best custom race I've seen with the exception of I saw on director's cut list. Seriously balanced, innovative spells, an excellent selection of models. Though I have a small complaint about the units which have some red in them. They don't look so great in blue. e.g. Blood Mage. The names given to units and spells are very creative. All in all, this is a refreshing change from the norm and a high quality piece of work.

    Thanks! the Blood Mage could be fixed. Oh, and try the race in teal or light blue, I think they look the best in those colors. And if anyone comes across a glitch with the Saw Mill's animations, I cannot fix it, that would be a modeler's job. Sorry.

    Heya, another melee map from you! Played this and I was amaze by the new race, High Elves. For me, they are balance enough but some problems in icons, models and such. Your problem in icon is you used some icons such as BTNs to UPG icons and that is wrong. For the models, dont use models with glows or hero models to units. And when was upgrading I think the Saw Mill, a screen like object appeared behind the Sawmill.... weird. So by the way, here is my review:

    High Elves Review
    [+] Good Points:
    -Terrain is good. Its not that flat but you have some problems such as empty atmosphere and you only used few doodads to give details to the terrain.
    -This map has the needed resources such as: Gold Mines and Shops.
    -The map is huge enough perfect for huge melee battle. Area is open and perfect for any possibilites such as ambushes. Symbolizing a good melee.
    -Really good and balanced race, the Nigh Elves. I had fun playing that race.

    [-] Bad Points:
    -Terrain is good but you have problems such as empty atmoshpere. You only used few doodads to give details to the terrain but that is not enough. Fill it with more love and maybe add some waterfalls for better results in each ends of the river in the middle.
    -Good and balanced race, High Elves but noticed some bugs such as improper icons used on units, hero model used on units, Sawmill when it is build a large screen appears behind it when I upgrade it and the second skill of the Guardian doesnt seem to work because I have turned it on so it will give me HP with cost of mana but the problem is it doesnt even give me life but it stll consumes mana.
    -I noticed that when a computer uses the Human Race, they dont convert to High Elves. You said that for Human it is Night Elves right?

    [] Suggestions:
    -Improve your terrain by giving more details into it. Fill the terrain with some more doodads and also you might want also to add in each end of the river in the middle a waterfall.
    -Fix those bugs and problems that I have said about the new race, High Elves... well, except for the awmill because you said it is the model's fault but how about finding a different model for it?
    -Fix the bug about the computer cannot use High Elves race.


    Overall, this is a good melee map that I enjoyed. Nothing more to say, I would like to rate this 4/5 and +3 REP to you!

    Voting for Approval also.

    I don't really like to interfere with Blizzard's maps when I am making a custom race. But on my next map, I shall include my own map with the races. I could look around for a new model, even though I do enjoy the model and it's looks. I didn't make an AI for the High Elves, so that is why they don't show up when you wanted them.

    The Gaurdian's ability heals nearby friendly units, not himself, that be a bit OP.

    I'll look into the icons and models. But there are a few problems: some models fit perfectly and I wish i could remove the hero model from it, and the Icons can be a bit pesky at times, but I'll try to fix them.

    Thanks for the review! :grin:

    What the fuck? The map was approved because Hell_Master's review is 95% about the melee terrain? That terrain is made by Blizzard. The review need to be remade and focus more on the new race.. The name of the map is Dark Forest.

    Please note, I did not create the HeroRanger Icon, I did give it to Wa666r but I found it in a map I downloaded and its author is unknown. I did make the Mounted Archer though.

    Good catch sonofjay.

    Its blank but the browser is not loading anything (it works on other map discreptions).

    Tried the map once and found a problem and some stuff i dislike.

    The Horse Archer unit has a bug when dying. Also it has an aura and i can click the icon which opens 2 more icons??? Whats the purpose of that?

    I honestly dislike some of the hotkeys and the choice of icons. For example i dislike the Orc Spear Upgrade Icons beeing used for ranged upgrades.
    Also i dislike the Human blacksmith beeing used. It doesnt fit the other buildings.
    The hotkey for the elven farm is really badly placed ("O"), i think "E" is better.
    The hotkey for the sundering shield is "U" and really hard to use when in battle.
