Hello and welcome to Life of a Peasant Ultimate. The map is still in beta stage (below 1.0) so if you play it please report all bugs, ideas and suggestions you have to me, here at the forum or at Northrend.

What is this map about?

The map simulates a modern town with fantasy elements. There are three big powers in the city. The police, the mafia and the druglord. These faction are battling each other since their winning conditions needs them to kill, imprison or otherwisly challenge the other powers. Additionally there are 7 normal villagers. These villagers don´t need to get involved in the power struggle but there is a big chance that they will. Mafia and Police want taxes from these guys and the druglord wants to sell ... well ... drugs to them.
So no one is save.

For the villagers there are a lot of unique jobs with different things to do. You can be a garbageman or you can be the cryptkeeper, delving into dark magic. Or you just can go fishing. Do what you want it´s Life of a Peasant after all. Besides of money the jobs will also provide you with skills or unique items that will help you in getting mightier. And if you are bored you can always go to the east part of town and clash some gang members.

All in all LOAP Ultimate brings the loap-genre to a new level even in the beta stage and I got many comments on b.net that this is already the best loap-map out there. So go on, play and see for yourself. I wonder if you can find the hidden skills?

The map is regurlarly updated by me and optimized with Vexorians tool. As a side-effect you cannot open the map in the editor. Sorry for that.


Features:
---------

-Winning conditions for the big three that will result in a fierce fight over the town.

-Working techtrees and many units for the big three factions.

-A drug-addiction system that will ensure that your consumers will stay consumers.

-13 different jobs divided into T0/T1/T2 jobs.
T0 jobs are jobs that do not need specific stats and can be done by different people at the same time. Fishing is a good example.
T1 jobs are the basic jobs that you can do with your starting attributes if you chose the right hero. Example is thief, cryptkeeper or mailman.
T2 jobs are better jobs that will give you more rewards and more influence. You also need a lot of stats in order to take them up so you cannot do them from the beginning. An example of an T2 job is the doctor that can set the revive price for dead heroes and will also get the money they need to pay for reviving. Another T2 job is the assassin that will need to slay other peasants or even the leader of one of the big three in order to get money.

-Taxation system
Police and Mafia can set taxes from 0% to 5% that they charge from the peasants. The peasants can also deny to pay those taxes but that may result in cop/mafia getting very angry.

-a cool banking system
Every player can deposti his gold into the high or the low security vault getting 5/10 % interest. Each coin deposit will give the police money every minute. But if someone breaks into the bank and steals the coins he steals directly from YOU. So keep your eyes open and hope that the police is on guard.

-a stonepit in the prison
If you make the police angry he can throw you into the stonepit and force you to climb some stones until you earned enough money with it to pay for your crimes.

-a casino for the mafia to let the peasants gamble for their money. Will you play fair?

-learning by doing
While the big three get fixed skills every time they level up, the peasants start without any skills. They have the possibility to get skills from their jobs. For example mailman will give you a speed bonus when you deliver enough mails. And if you deliver even more mails the speed bonus will raise. There are also secret skills in the game and buyable skills.

-imported models for several units

I think, just to mess stuff up for the police. You shud put a job thingy where the mafia is. Which reads: Rob bank
Lolololol....

To do so, I'd prolly change the model of the player into a robber model, and change the alliance to enemy (for police). And maybe to give the players more impression, put in a system somehwere, that the vilager's can set up their own sort of 'gang' or summin, and commit crimes nd shiz:D:D:D

Seems so. Well it would be cool if you read Warhunters comment. He allowed me to take the name, I didn´t really know that it was taken when I named my map, but it is ok for him. In my opinion your rating is not fair under this circumstances.

The whole terrain, unit, name and etc etc.. looks like a carbon copy of other LOAP map. Infact, it look like just been stolen or edited from other resources without the main author consent. That is because those unit name, structure, terrain position and everything look exactly just like the other LOAP I ever seen.

I won't be conducting any inspection over it till I seen if the trigger was deprotect or not.

Septimus it is based off the Loap terrain made by stankynuggets and modified by rival935 for his City of Corruption map. I give proper credits in the map for both of them. Other than that all units, triggers etc. are completely by me.

If you look into the map you´ll see that there are not many similarities to all other loaps except the general idea and the 4 forces villagers, police, mafia and drug lord.

But there are no cheats, no rigged units, a taxes system, a techtree for the big three, jobs based on stats, a drug addiction system and more that makes this map quite unique in my opinion.

I hope I could convince you that this map is not stolen, hacked or otherwisly illegal. I even have the approval of warhunter to take the name LOAP Ultimate.

To be honest, you have to do better than that. Everything in this map ain't impress me at this moment.

And even if you have approval map at map section, it won't stay approve if there is a valid reason to remove it.

Like it or not, if I am not impress with the map; it would be likely won't be approve by Rui considering his standard are 50 times higher than mine.

Well after all it´s still a beta but personally I think it´s even now better then most of the other clon loaps here on hive that are mostly "me too" maps.

But of course I will work hard so that 1.0 will impress you enough to give the map an Approve :thumbs_up:

I just played the LoaP.
Its good.... Although you should be able to use some recipes for better weapons ect.
Also, I noticed you was able to fish. Why cant you mine ore, then smith it? What about woodcutting? (Not sure if there is a woodcutting job)

But I love that you get addicted to drugs like that. But I think 1 hp a second, is too much. Considering your starting hp.
And, you dont even lose life when youre addicted
Edit: Oh, you do, but it was my HP regeneration that made me not lose life ^.^
Bugs: I found one bug; when writing ping, it only pings 3 jobs. Isnt there more? There should be. Else it aint a good LoaP

To the Drug Addiction: You should also make an medicational item, which decreased your addiction by one level. But not so your drug addiction goes fully away. You had it once - You keep having it forever.

Hey T-S-G everything you said is already included. The doctor job has an item that will reduce your drug-level by 1 per use. But it´s very expensive. Also the jobs are stat-based. So you just get the jobs pinged that you can do with your current stats. About smithing and woodcutting that would be nice, but I have no good idea how to include it so it is fun.

Oh hehe... Im sorry I wasted your time.
But I think, you should make a red pinged job. For example if you need better stats to be a doctor, that job is pinged red.

Hey thanks for the support and the good rating!

I just uploaded 0.4. I introduce a bank system there. You can deposit/withdraw your gold into a high or a low security vault. They offer 5/10 % interest per minute and you do not have to pay taxes from your bank account. Also if you deposit your money a gold coin is created in the vault .. so if someone breaks into the vault he can steal YOUR money. So be careful .. and beg that the police is on guard since he will also profit from gold coins in the vault.
For every gold coin in the high sec. vault the cop gets 5$ per minute and for every coin in low sec. he will get 10$ so he also has an interest to protect the vault. Except he is short on money ... then he can just open the vault doors and take yours ... well ... nothing is safe isn´t it?

Juhu 0.45 is released. I added a casino system for the mafia now with three croupiers and the chance for the peasants to gamble with 10, 50, 100 or 500 Dollar stakes. The mafia can set the winning chance for each croupier individually and will get all money the peasants bet but will also lose money to pay winners out (2x the bet). If mafia got really broke he can set the winning chance to 0% so he will get all money the peasants will bet. Until they leave frustrated that is ...
I also added the hiveworkshop sign from the map development forum and the police car model from skrab.

I hope you like this release. Ehm .. Septimus? Don´t you think you might consider an approval for my map? You see it is very different from all other LOAPs with much more effort putted into it.

It would be neat, if the drug lord could train a drug dealer (a villager). The Police cud hire recruits, and the Mafia could hire... some other dewds. And maybe u cud add some abilities like in LoaP smiletown? I mean, motivation and that stuff. It has some pretty cool spells. I wanna cook :D (and get laid XD)

I never played LOAP Smiletown can you explain me what abilities there are? Cooking sounds interesting, if you do not have the time to explain it to me I will search the map here at hive and look into it myself.

I also thought about jobs that can be offered by the big three but I did not come up with a good and fun concept for them. If you can make up your mind and brainstorm some ideas I may include them fast and give you proper credits of course.

Thanks that you write here so often :thumbs_up:

Well, first theres a Potency and a Sleep meter. If you do not sleep, you will walk slow when it reaches an X point, and could get... I think I explain this after the sex part.

Theres two main abilities you start with (if youre everyone, except a child) the Have Sex, and the Allow Sex ability. If a player uses Allow Sex, another player can use Have Sex on him / her. If that is done, the Potency Meter will go down (agility increases potency btw.)

Back to the sleep part. So if you do not sleep, people can "rape" u, since they can have sex with u, even if you do not have Allow Sex turned on.
Your damage will also get decreased, same goes for attackspeed.
You cna use the Sleep ability to recover your missing sleep points, but it will increase faster if youre in a bed (A little suggestion is to make the host turn sleep effect on / off on start, because not all likes it.)

Then theres the abilities I talked about. To cook, you need a cooking range near u, and the cooking spell. You can cook more, the higher your lvl is (it wud be cool if you needed some materials, for example for seaweed, you obviously only needed Seaweed.)
Theres also a passive spell called Motivation, it increases the attackspeed and movementspeed for people around. That kinda stuff I was thinking about :)

Thanks that you write here so often :thumbs_up:
Just trying to help, im not much of a map maker myself, but I have some good ideas. It seems xD

I tested on bnet twice and three 'attempts' where noone else wanted to play or replay it. Here's feedback collected...

Good Points (for once, not just my opinion, but a mass opinion by min. 12 ppl)
[+] Fun new systems such as cooking
[+] Sex system LOL
Neutral points
(blank)
Bad Points (this is what you wanted)(mainly peasant player complaints)
[-] No replay value
[-] Few custom models
[-] Little space in town compared to Stankynuggets
[-] Very Small number of heroes for peasants
[-] No game modes Allowing peasants to become useful
[-] Not enough combat items
[-] Server split when the Druglord quit
[-] Very little for peasants to do aside from jobs and skills, which are somewhat repetitive.
[-] Not fun playing without police, mafia and druglord, who noone wanted to be.

Most of these aren't even my own opinion but a mass who complain to me for even hosting this (various uses of coarse and impolite language censored by Impman himself)!

Thus, 1/5! Happy? I could try hosting it again, but I lag a bit and that bugs some other people.

Ahhhh .. you sure that you hosted my map? I do not have a cooking system or a sex system included in my map (and the latter won´t be ever included seeing the game is for 12year old.) Also there is no server split when the drug lord leaves. At least I never ever experienced such a thing and I play it quite often :D. So I guess you rated the wrong
map here :wink:

I think about adding this, like making a restaurant-job or so.

To be honest, on the positive things it looks like you played loap Smiletown. But none except the no game modes part. Also, just because StankyNuggets loap is big... Doesnt make it good?

My god, you've made more loaps? :ugly:

It was I LOAP I hosted, but your name, Gurkengelee, was shown on it. I apologize should it be someone using your account or name. I confused them because of T-s-G,s stupid commenting. WHAT DA HECK BE YOU TALKING ABOUT? Whatever map you thining of musta been deleted long ago, judging by the content you mention.
Deepest apologies in that game.

You mind figuring out which map has those systems then for me? I deleted my copy of the LOAP long ago. My internet lags to much to check, could you search for maps under your name?
It's either here or epicwar.com/

Also, I now have tried your map...
DEFINANTLY this map...
about 3/5? sounds nice, but i've only hosted it once. This is MUCH better, although the lack of heroes is still apparent...

Remember, keep me informed. I wanna yell at the other Gurkenglee for HIS sucky map!

BTW, how much time does LOAP making take?
And yess, nothing compared to Stankynuggets map. Try adding my advice to your map anyways. It could definently improve...

Sounds strange I cannot remember making another loap. Maybe someone putted my name under their useless work? :grin:

But I could not think why someone should do that *shrug*
Well whatever, I will read your post more closely now and will think about adding some of your ideas. About the lack of heroes .. that will not change in my current plans for the map since the heroes just differ in their starting attributes and I have all possible attribute combinations with the current heroes now. But when the map progresses I may think about adding a wider variety of heroes with a different starting skill or so.

Not smiletown. Soz. Like I said, it was by (A) gurkengelee

Smiletown is one of the only ones, I seen with a cooking and sex system.
You might just remember wrong by the username. Or maybe I just havent played enough LoaPs.

Oh, you're right there.

I've played countless LOAPS, looking for the best, although the original hasn't been booted from that position yet.
Naruto LOAP, Cops and Robbers LOAP, LOAP Aftermath, LOAP Nerub, LOAP Deluxe edition, LOAP smiletown(sadly), LOAP 300(spartan), and ridiculously more which I can't remember names of, but i remember features.

Also, Suggested Players of this map=1-10.
How do you play it 1 player?

Ah welll I am quite busy right now. My girlfriend and I just bought a set of Warhammer 40k models and we are painting them over the weekend. I can only work on the map when she sleeps so I fear that the next versions will not come with the usual speed. But I try my best.

Gurkengelee it seems you've put a great amount of effort into this map & I salute you to that. I see very little work in these clone loaps with nothing changed but models titles and backgrounds. I'm glad to see somebody that actually puts effort into a loap after so much time. This is how loap was ment to be not boring jobs with god who kills everyone or riggs friends. Good Job & keep up the well done work.
