Kindergarten TD! v.3.0

Submitted by Dinah
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I'm very happy to show all of you my Kindergarten TD!

For people who want to know something about this map before playing it, there's a small FAQ here:

Frequently Asked Questions
What did you change?

This TD bases on the old Wintermaul maps but there's nearly nothing i didn't change:
°All towers (123) and races (10) etc.
°I remade the terrain and did heavy changes to the landscape.
°All special levels (11) were made by me.
°All map specials (e.g. builder teleport) were made by me.
°I improved the unit pathing and added a stuck-teleport.
°I added an XP system based on save/load codes.

What do i have to do?

°The sense of the map is to defend the kinna treehouse from the adults who want to know all your 40 secrets (lives).
°It's your mission to choose one of 10 unique races and beat the adults that try to reach the treehouse.
°Save your amount of XP and enable many features for you to play!

Who helped you to create this map?

°Basically this map is made by me, Dinah.
°Ap0calypse helped me translating the map.
°Some people of this map forum (and some friends of mine) who helped me improving the map and finding bugs.

What makes this map unique and a must have?

°Better looking terrain (Green flower style).
°A bank (or better comic) system with variable interest.
°Many special rounds like Invulnerable or Healer.
°Fixed unit stuck.
°2 Languages (German/English).
°Sounds.
°Funny descriptions of every tower.
°An XP system.
°A Money Devide Mode (for better Teamplay).
°Many other features.

Is this map protected?

Yes this map is protected and can't be opened in WE.

What is the sense of the XP system?

The XP system should motivate skilled players to play Kindergarten TD multiple times to earn advanced revards offering new strategies.

Which features can be enabled with higher XP amounts?

°100 XP -> Pro Races
°200 XP -> Instant Builder-Teleport
°300 XP -> Random Tower
°400 XP -> Book of Capers
And much more!​

    not ALL towers :p I've done most of them in the vacation, but it goes really slow now...
    I'll translate the builders and I hope it will be finished in the weekend (depends on what I've got to do then :s)
    otherwise I'll send you the incomplete map, and you can translate the rest (which will be 10 towers max)

    I'm sorry... I really don't have enough time.
    I'm doing my best to finish it as quick as possible, but I also have a social life, play sports and have a bro and sis who wants to get on the PC, so it's difficult for me to translate it quick.

    Erm... I'm going to snoboard from 2/02 at 4:00 AM - 12/02, so I won't have time to finish the map then.
    Though it is almost finished (few towers more + loading-screen and some triggers)

    Yep... I think It is done, but I wanted to re-check everything first ^^
    I translated: units / abilities / triggers / buffs / Loading Screen

    Remarks:
    - There were 4 towers I just couldn't translate :s
    - If you want the Loading Screen to be german, There is a trigger with the german text.
    - I replaced the Leaderboard with a Multiboard (You can also undo this)
    - I haven't translated the tips... but they aren't shown to non-german players atm, I hope it doesn't really matter.
    - Added quests (only English)

    the library ist a bit weak in my opinion because soetimes the cast time is tooo long and gandalf is too expensive

    hmmm ive played a lot with library and yes i guess it could need a bit more balancing
    but its a pro race and some towers (e.g. the gandalf) need to be casted manually in order to hit as many enemys as possible

    do u mean the grey or the white gandalf?

    thx for the 1. comment for a very long time ;)

    Very good, I can see you've put some effort in it.
    It's good to see you didn't quit editing this map, it reallypaid off...

    + Nice race-descriptions (descriptions are very important in the design of the map)
    I really love the splash-description, that's something that even great mauls/TD's are missing... I'll use it in my TD as well if I may ^^
    + The new race is very nice with the abilities
    + A lot of new (original) creep modes
    + New nice features
    - Still some german descriptions in english mode
    - Some spelling mistakes, not bad ones, but
    - Item descriptions of the "Car Workshop" race aren't good (which is probably my fault, because I forgot them :s)

    In general a very nice map, it needs a little improvement, but you'll get there!
    If I can help in any way, I would do it with pleasure

    congratulations on this version ^^

    ehm if you want to, you could say what exactly i can improve at the English translation (grammar and spelling mistakes).

    what exactly isn't good at the car workshop descriptions?

    Edit: I've rebalanced the library race in ver 2.1

    not every item from the workshop is translated, some are only partially translated and the descriptions are better this way:

    Damage: 50
    Cooldown: 0.8
    DPS: 62.5
    Range: 800
    Special: hits 2 adults / Air Only

    This is just an example...
    - for the DPS, you first calculate how many times the item attacks per second (1 / cooldown) and multiply that with the damage (1.25 * 50 = 62.5).
    - You can change the color of course, that won't change anything...
    - You may add this to the tower descriptions as well, but you don't have to...


    - The Stuffed Alpine Bear upgrade says "Die eisbälle tieper gefriere", that should be "freeze the snowballs even further" or something like that...
    - Gandalf the grey:
    "The tale "LOTR" is loved by many bookfriend", that should be "BookfriendS"
    "Is one of the main persons who moving and smoking around the hole day" should be "Is one of the main characters who moves and smokes around whole day"
    - Bookshelf:
    "It's live is probably longer", should be "it's liFe is probably longer"


    There are more minor spelling mistakes / Typo's like that ("Ecery" instead of "Every" and things like that)

    EDIT: Found another bug.

    Some of the "Gieriger Spielzeugverkaufer" (Invulnerable level) stay invulnerable for ever.
    I attacked some of the units in blue's area and when they reached grey, they still were invulnerable.

    yes the car workshop's attacks are spell damage and the night elf level 1. only gets 90% of the damage made by spells and is 2. is fast

    maybe i can increase the damage a bit ... thx

    i'll improve the car workshop weapon description when i have some time ...
    i'm going to add damage descriptions to every tower but its very much work (about 90 towers x2)

    the bug with lvl 6 is a very tricky bug. the units are getting invulnerable und stay invulnerable sometimes when a library tower attacks them (it's a known bug)

    Edit: Ok ive improved the car workshop tooltips a bit ;) (looks realy great)

    ps. i made lvl 3 weaker

    yesterday i played with some friends in battlenet and i was grey with libray and we reached lvl 27 and we played with the the jüngling (i dunno how exactly it's called in english) difficulty (air; fast)

    hmm i guess i'll add some extra bonuses to the higher difficulties...

    Hi Dinah

    First of all I want to congratulate you on this great map. A few days ago some friends and I beat "Geldteilen TD" (not hosted here) on hard so we were looking for a new map. Now we try to beat your map :)
    In version .2.2c I had problems with the "Autowerkstatt" saying inventary full all the time after I built two towers. My worker was empty but the shop seems to have an additionall inventory which was full. ATM I cannot check wether this bug is fixed in the recent version. Can you have a look at this?

    P.s.: I am German, too. So, if you don't understand everything PM me ;)

    Edit: Isn't there any scaling according to the number of players?
    Edit2: The bug seems to be fixed.

    fist of all i thank you for playing my map :thumbs_up:

    i don't know what exactly you mean with the car workshop inventory bug, because it's non-triggered ...
    perhaps you didn't noticed that the fist tower "moped" has only 2 inventory slots?! (the builder has 3)

    ps. i reached level 31 (fist bonus level) only one time with one friend but it was version 1.6 or something ...
    last saturday i lost my last secret in level 27 (air and fast :/ )

    Hi

    Yes, I think I got something wrong. It works now. Yesterday we reached level 27, too :cool: Next time, we will have even more air defence...

    Btw, you didn't answer my question: Is there any scaling? E.g. less creeps / weaker creeps if there are fewer players?
