    I thought "IcemanBo" sounded familiar so I decided to check this out. I think I've played Ice escape with you a few times some time ago. Played through parts of the map and checked the triggers in WE.

    I'll make a quick review for this map template!

    [+]
    - Triggers look pretty much leakless (Though I only went through them quickly).
    - Triggers work as they should.
    - The person using the template will recieve some guidance when looking through the triggers and the map itself.
    [-]
    - I consider the template pretty useless due to several facts:
    - You need to be familiar with the WE and how it works to be able to create a game from the template anyway.
    - You are uploading it to hive. Most people here wouldn't need the template (like myself) because they already know how to create an escape map of any type.

    I'm not saying that your map is bad, but to me it seems pretty useless and hard to learn from if you're a newbie. Personally I learn better by creating triggers from scratch and following a tutorial if I have to, and there are tons of escape tutorials out there.

    How I see a newbie's reaction when opening this map:
    1: he opens the map
    2: he opens the trigger editor
    3: BAM! 28 different triggers with different content you don't know anything about.... him: "WHERE DO I START??? AHHH!!!", then he closes WE

    So, to sum up my 2 points: Too hard for a newbie, the experienced map makers already know how to do it.

    Not a bad map template, but for the effort I don't think you get much back.

    Thanks for your comment IcyMind, funny there are more ice escaper on THW, i thought im pretty lonesome :p

    So... I know a beginner wont be able to change these systems.. but in fact for only creating a new level you just have to add 3 lines, 2 regions and 1 unit (finish). The rest, all other features with units is just optional to show what could be added for more fun.

    So to others who gonna test it: Only first Init trigger is needed for putting your new levels in default.

    But thanks for your opinion IcyMind, good comment... +rep
    p.s.: Sorry, but i cant remeber you anymore, was maybe too long time ago? :confused: ... But we are still sliding!

    You're missing a changelog in the description. You should have one since you're updating the map.

    Ice Escape Template Review

    Map Info
    Ice Escape Template is a Template for Escape maps that is created by IcemanBo. What makes this interesting for a template is that there are triggers for TD already ready to be used and modified just by the audience which I can say is good.


    Review
    Idea/Concept:
    The Idea of creating an Escape Template is really reat for we dont see much of this in Hive as far as I kno and also what made it better is that, you provided also Escape based triggers just to be modified to the audience contents which makes it easier for them and you putted some effort into this though I kind of partially agree with IcyMind's opinion. I will gve you a rating of 4/5 here.

    Terrain:
    On Escape Maps we dont judge terrain much here for the terrain goes on how the game goes. So I can say is that it is looking good and I like that when you walk into different ice and snow tiles, there are corresponding effects that will occur such as MS plus, death and Reverse. Simply, I'll give you a rating of 5/5 here.

    Gameplay:
    Nothing much of a gameplay, just experimenting with the different side effects by stepping at each ice and snow tiles and when finish, go to Circle to finish game. I understand that you made this because the audience are the one who will make their own gameplay out of this template so still rating this not lower 3/5 because it has no gameplay but rating this, 4/5 because of many possibilties of gameplay that can be made through this simple Template.


    Comments
    Overall, for an Escape template map, this is looking good and the fact that there are also Triggers to make it easier which I can say that you putted alot of effort into this. To sum up your scores, you got a total of 12/15 or 4/5. Take this +4 REP as a reward for making such a great Escape Template.

    Hi iceman bo. I was looking into using this kind of template for a coop map for 1-2 players. I just had a few quick questions if that is ok.

    Two non essential questions are whether I can expand the map's size without reprocussions (I am not sure if the apply camera you do to limit each round to the round's terrain is affected by the ratio of the overall map size) and if I can control the order of the rounds (I know which trigger is causing it to be random, but just now sure how to reverse).

    These are non essential questions since I can get around both of them (the first I ask because I want room to make cinematics, but there is already some space at the bottom so it is not imperative for me to know). I ask the second question since I wanted to have certain cinematics play at the end of each round, but if I cannot control the order then I cannot make a cinematic that progresses in sequence since I am not sure which one will play first. But I can get around this issue also by just having 1 large cinematic at the start and 1 large cinematic at the end, so the order will not matter.

    The main issue is, I am trying to control the model for the heros that are given. I was planning on doing this in a crude manner, since after the "human" is created I could just trigger it to pick all units belonging to a certain colour and using the metamorphosis spell to change into the hero I want it to be, a hero that will not have the option to change to another form for the sake of the story. The issue I am facing here is, all the morph spells are based on the druid of the claw's metamorphosis spell, so when there are 2 players in game (its a coop map that allows 1 player or 2 player), and I want the second hero to be another hero model, I cannot use the same trigger since all the morph into other drivers spell are based on the same metamorphosis spell. And the key issue is, there might only be 1 player in game, so I only want to trigger it so only when there is a second player, it will change it to the 2nd model (which is why I would use the crude trigger "pick all units belonging to colour and do spell)

    Sorry if that is super confusing, I love your template a lot :)

    Map size has no effect, as long as it gets so small that for example objects, or regions are removed. You can or make it bigger, or smaller and remove levels.
    For locking players' cam to level bounds, there are regions placed on the map, and they are put into an array. Have a look here:

    1.png

    Basically, a random number from array size 1-6 is taken, and will define the "next level".
    If you want to have a straight order, then you can simply start at "1" and simply increase by +1 after each level.

    Did I get it right, that a trigger is needed that:
    • Transforms hero by player 1 into "Hero X"
    • Transforms hero by player 2 into "Hero Y"
      ( X is not same as Y)
    • Trigger does only work if there are 2 players
    Not sure where exactly the problem with crow form ability is, you may add different abilities to the heroes, and use it, or? Might you elaborate if this doesn't help?

    Thank you! But I'm not very sure you very much need so much from it.. ;D

    I mean, the only way I can make a unit use a custom ability (the change driver/model spell) is by triggering it to use one of the default abilities that the "custom" ability is based on. All of the change driver spells are based on the " druid of the claw -bear- transform " ability. So I cannot make them turn into different drivers unless the changedriver abilities are based on different spells.
    *I might be wrong about everything above, but that is how I understand it.

    • We have control which ability a unit has at any point in game.
    • All transform-abilities are based on same orderid, means all abilities require the same order to execute.
    • We can control the unit to have the exact transform-ability which our unit should use, and then we just order to transform.
    See example map attached, where we can write "-0" up to "-11" to transform in wanted hero.

    Ahh! Of course, adding the ability to the unit as a trigger. Thanks Iceman! I did not even think of that as a possibility to get around the order ID issue. I will try messing around with the map again. Thank you!
