v2.1b Change Log
-To prevent heroes from getting stuck they will now spawn slightly south of the town hall.
-To prevent afkers from missing the Council Hall placement period and then getting put in a place where their town hall can not be built, resulting in it not working properly when it is built. Set regions have been placed and players who afk will instead be placed at one of these set regions as long as a player did not build there already.
-Battering Ram damage decreased by about 100 and its upgrade increments have been slightly reduced.
-Exp gained from upgrading the Counsil Hall and killing units has been increased.
-The economic structures provided income has been given a boost but houses now cost 150 gold, their upgrades have been decreased.

This map is a child of Castle Builder that brings to the table a revamped income system, more interesting unit base, more content, ally system so you can team with friends, multiple different types of kings to choose from, random natural disasters and mini bosses that can spawn that drop gold and treasures for your king. The map is coded completely in vJASS and runs smoothly with no lag and includes convenient systems like a mass wall build system for easy fortifying. If you're not familiar with castle builder, this is how the game is played:

-You start in the center of the map with a 'wisp' and travel the map to find a place to start your kingdom and plant your primary structure. This must be done within the first 60 seconds of the game or a spot will randomly be chosen for you.
-After the first 90 second timer is up, a Altar of Kings will appear next to your primary structure which will allow you to choose a King or Queen which will lead your kingdom. This King or Queen must be chosen in 30 seconds or one will be chosen for you.
-Start building Houses to generate income and fortify your base in case someone is planning for a rush! This would also be a good time to make some friends to ally.
-Keep a good eye on your King and build defenses around your primary structure; if either fall you will lose the game! <:O
-Build a strong force, smash your enemies, and celebrate your glory with your allies!
-Be prepared for natural disasters like plagues, tornadoes, and earthquakes; you may also come across mythical creatures on your way to victory that have many prized treasures!


This map is now in the beta phase. It no longer uses Funness's terrain as i have crafted my own. The current income system is still in the process of being polished but it is getting there.

If you have any feedback, suggestions, comments, complaints, bugs or just want to talk about the map, feel free to contact me at any time or leave a post here.

Thanks for trying my map. :)

    Will get back to you with suggestions, opinions and a rating
    Edit:
    Very Nice map!!! I really enjoyed it, it is near perfect. Although I think I have seen that terrain before, am I mistaken?? Oh well.
    This map is an awesome and fun map I really liked the Kings Crown attachment on the Kings head, this amused me. I barely enjoy maps like these but well done.
    4/5
    A few spelling errors - 'Elamental Synergy'?
    The gate is only horizontal, there should be vertical and diagonals.
    There are possibly other problems and I urge everyone to play this.
    2ND EDIT
    Remove or reduce the wall building spell, the one which the wall casts and there is no need for a builder. The player can simply just continue to create walls whilst he is under siege. If you are supplied right, you can have endless walls. 1 dies you build another and so on.

    Really liked the map. Here are some bugs that I've found and some suggestions:
    -It says "train javiliner" at the barracks.
    -When a Great Mammoth spawns, it says MAMMOUTH.
    -It says Academy instead of Academy; this is only in the build section of you worker, not the actual building name.
    -When a peasant builds something, other workers can help. But this costs extra gold per second AND lumber. In this case, it lowers your walls counter.
    -Rather than the houses costing food, wouldn't it be better to have a maximum number of houses (like the walls)? Only my opinion.
    -The "Willow Wood" upgrade from the Lumbermill requires a Castle. But if you upgrade your Castle to a Palace, you can't research the upgrade any more.
    -Later on in the game, the King isn't so hard to kill. Might I suggest some upgrades for him or some more items?
    -Some abilities have the same icon before and after being researched. I think there should be a difference between them. This isn't an actual problem, but anyway, if you decide to change these icons, they are for Lightning Javelins and Parry. Also, the Axeman's Cleave is the "passive" form of the icon.

    Hope this helps. GJ and continue the good work :).

    Pretty good. The descriptions in-game could be a little bit better, but are still good.
    The gameplay was nice, I especially like, that the walls can build by themselves in each way. So far the biggest problem is that choosing whisp. I`d suggest you to incarase his range of sight and make him move faster / give him short blink ability, because as it is now, you must know from the beginning where you want to build, else you won`t have time to go back. You could also make an upgrade, which incarases the possible number of walls. Like begin from 30 and each upgrade incarases it by 10, with max 5 levels of an upgrade. The number of possible upgrades is very big. The number of units is good too. I don`t like the fact, that farms take food, and every later upgrade of it takes it too. But that`s my personal feeling. And I`d suggest you to incarase the number of heroes, because so far there are only 2. And maybe add second nation, because playing as humans many times can be boring. The terrain is good, but as always it still can be better, by adding nice, well-placed doodad. The description at Hive is good enaugh.

    Overall the map gets from me 3/5 and I vote for approval.

    Yes I've gotten permission from Funness to borrow it until the map's terrain is done.

    Wow, thanks! Its far from done though so check up on this thread later! :D

    I am working this out atm.

    Besides the wall limit there is another way this is countered. Tunnelers can demolish walls and when they do they blight the land they used the demolish ability under. Walls can not be built on blighted land so this sort of counters that strategy. Use tunnelers if your enemy is going crazy with Mass Build! :D

    I didn't notice this; this is a big problem. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
    I think building the houses around you for food provides a good balance between how much you're teching vs how many troops you can have at a given point. I will keep this idea in mind though if continue to see many complaints about this.
    This is weird, i'll look into it.
    More items will certainly be released in future versions, not only do i plan to make a buildable shop but mini bosses like the Mammoth and Dragon will drop a rare or two in addition to the epic.
    I know, i've been a little lazy on the cosmetic parts of the map, but it is alpha and it will be polished up each version.

    Helps a load! Thanks a lot for taking the time to leave such detailed feedback.

    This is a brilliant idea and i am going to implement this for the next version as in a few tests i've also find people new to the game sort of struggling to find a spot. However i feel the 1 minute timer is necessary for people coming back to the game as waiting any longer can get very zzzzzz. I will credit you for your idea :).

    I like the concept of this idea but i am going to need to think in depth about it some more. The real reason why there is a wall limit is so you can't be massive building walls as a way of defending your base while being attacked. If there was no mass build system i would probably not need the wall limit.

    Note that even though the upgrades take more food, they give significantly more gold than the equivalents in Houses would give.

    Yes, i plan to add plenty of new heroes in later versions.

    I have no plans at this time to add another race.

    A fresh new terrain is currently in the making which i'm am confident will be a lot better.

    Fair enough for alpha. :D



    Thanks for the feedback guys. This will help me and the map out a lot.

    Hey, another suggestion, add a destroy or demolish ability to the houses. Simply because I like to mass houses, upgrade and then kill houses and mass units. Would make gaming alot simpler.

    This is a rather small but important update that fixes many bugs some which had potential to crash the game. It also includes a few balance changes as well.

    -Houses, Mansions, and Manors have had their food costs reduced by 1.
    -Spiked Traps now cost 1 lumber as well but your total lumber has been increased from 70 to 90.
    -Tunnelers can now use demolish while tunneling.
    -Warchief can no longer leap out of bounds. (this bug not only crashed the game sometimes but starting items could be duped)
    -Tunneler's demolish ability can now destroy spiked traps as well.
    -Flare can now detect invisible units.
    -When spiked traps die they cause an explosion. (this is just a visual effect)
    -Axemen can now cut down trees.
    -Trebuchet food cost reduced from 4 to 3.
    -Tamed Raven LoS increased from 1000 to 1500.
    -Justicar's Holy Light can now be cast on himself.

    Sorry to appear to be spamming updates but i felt this one was rather important.

    Good map, though your starting bit is a bit wierd. I liked the Warchief's leaping and all the other kings and units. The spelling, grammar and descriptions could use some work. Great income system, I hate harvesting gold to be honest. Terrain is exceptional and I liked the natural disasters. All triggering is fun. A brilliant map 3.75 rounded to 4/5.

    Errors and typos:
    -The Arcane Resilience and Elemental Synergy upgrades say in their description that they apply to high warlocks instead of wizards.
    -The new Vault does not have a proper description (it's the same as Lumbermill's).
    -You should assign some regions where Gold Dragons and Mammoths could spawn, instead of random point on map. A dragon appeared in the water one time, I could only reach it with my ranged units.
    -I understand that houses and towers cost food to prevent you from building too many of them, but why do strongholds also cost food?
    -From what I can see, the Book of Rituals upgrade does nothing except allow you to build the palace.

    Thanks again for bringing errors to my attention.
    Strongholds have the ability to train everything, but i think i'm going to remove the food cost as i don't see many people use them now because of that.
    I am planning on reworking how the mini-bosses spawn.
    Book of Rituals was an upgrade for the first version of this map when there were no houses and you'd capture villages for income, book of rituals gave the village's Mass Summoning ability so they could be more easily defended. However, village capturing was just a massive capture festival that was too crazy and wasn't too fun so i resorted to trying to make a more refined castle builder income system.


    I appreciate feedback on everything but i'd like to hear more about the current combat balance and heres a few questions i have for everyone whose played this game once:

    -Did you find using your hero in combat worth it or did you think it was a better idea to hide it away? If you used your hero in combat, explain the impact it has on the battle, was it a big one?
    -Are bases too easily sieged? Are they too hard to siege? Provide reasoning.
    -Is there any units you find to be absolutely useless? A unit you consider overpowered? Provide reasoning.

    Those are the main 3 i'd like answered, if you don't mind a few more:

    -Are the heroes balanced? Who do you think is the best? The worst? Provide reasoning.
    -Any units you'd like to see in the game?
    -Do you think units train too fast?

    Good map man, the latest update made it much better with tunnelers able to take down spikes. Massive turtle-age that made the game endless is finally gone. Came up with various siege strategies which made my opponents crumble :D...

    Anyway, we just need a vertical gate now :) keep up the good work

    Tested the new version. Unfortunately, didn't get enough players to stay in the game because most of them went "Me not know play this game => game sucks" and they left. So I tested it only in single-player. Not much to tell, but anyway:
    -Wisp teleport spell's hotkey doesn't work;
    -I can't teleport anywhere, because it says "Must explore there first".
    -Gold Dragon's splash seems to damage himself too.

    I haven't had a chance to play a longer match against an opponent who knows the map, so I can't really tell you very much about the balancing issues. If I get the chance to do that, I will. But here are 2 units that seem a bit imbalanced, without having actually used them in battle:
    -The assassin costs too little; it costs 25 gold, same as a footman, but can beat a footman without the 40% evasion. I would suggest a cost of 35-40.
    -The war lord. Costs 45 gold, same as knight, but can easily beat a knight thanks to the armor reduction, which is a great ability, especially earlier in the game, before players research too many armor upgrades. Maybe 50-55 gold for it?

    Well, let's see if other players agree to this or not. Anyway, keep those updates coming :D

    This works as intended, if you were able to teleport anywhere on the map but explored places, people would use teleport as a way to scout out everyone before planting their base.

    :O Ut oh.


    It is entirely in design for units to have strengths and weaknesses. If they didn't there would only be need for one unit. Warlord easily beats the night not because of his -6 armor ability but Warlord uses Polearms -- Polearms do significant damage to mounted units and therefore anything that uses polearms is designed to be a huge counter versus mounted units. The assassin may have the upper hand in a 1v1 fight versus a footman, but projectiles and magic will melt assassin face. This is not to say your observations are not helpful. A problem with the balance would be however if one unit has way too many strengths and nearly any weaknesses or vise versa.

    Thanks for your continued support. :D

    DLed and 5 seconds in, got a GIGANTIC bug for ya =P

    If you use the -gold command with negative numbers it will give you the amount you typed, with or without a king even spawned.
    I was messin around and typed -gold -10000000 for lulz and sure enough, I got Max gold and a Gold Bag that would drain all your gold haha

    Hope that was descriptive enough and helps you out =P Good day sirs ^_^

    How stupid of me. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. This is fixed in the latest version. Here is the complete change log:

    -Player 1/ Red can type -ffa to initiate Free For All mode within the first 15 seconds of the game.
    -Pyromancers now have a passive ability called Arson - which makes attacked buildings unable to be repaired for 5 seconds and reducing attack rate greatly.
    -Win triggers implemented. You win if you killed everyone who is not allied to you therefore your allies win as well.
    -Golden Dragon no longer can damage himself with his splash.
    -Infinite gold bag bug fixed.
    -Some hotkeys fixed.
