LTW - Evolution v2.39

Submitted by Robbepop
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Host map Arrange game
This is the newest version of my Line Tower Wars - Evolution map.
It is an alround LTW with an awesome performance due to the complete usage of vJass code.
The first player can choose from several game modes at the beginning of a game which influences the whole gameplay afterwards and is so able to customize his own game.


Play against the computer by occupying computer slots.
There are three available difficulties (easy, normal, insane) which have an influence on the power of the A.I. oponent.

- Sharp Tower - Melee tower, attacks at a high ratio and damages all units around it.

Difference to general LTW's:

  • This LTW contains many modes from which the host can choose from and which influences the gameplay greatly.
    It is fully coded in performant vJass with useful Systems and not with bad GUI codes.
    Elemental towers largely got replaced with strategic towers.
    The builder got helpful spells which he can use to win the game.
    The balance is much better than in other LTW's. (opinions of players in b.net)
    All tooltips and hotkeys are working and well made. (QWER hotkeys)
    The game interface got slight improvements.
    The game development is running and im ready for new stuff. =)
    No cooldown for sending creeps. (very experimental!)

    Hiho,

    I uploaded this new LTW - Evolution as a new map on the hive because I want to keep both versions for download.
    They are very different and I think most people won't like this new concept in LTW - Evolution v2.00 but I hope that they will find it better and more strategic than the old versions over time.

    Could somebody please approve this? =)

    So the only change you've done is optimize it?

    Hiho,

    no, I completely changed the whole towers.
    There were many many elemental tower which got all removed and replaced by strategical towers.
    So there is a big difference in both gameplays.

    Some modes also had to be removed because they were influenced by elemental towers.

    So I want to keep a version with elemental towers and with the new gameplay for the players. =)

    edit: thanks for approving !!

    This is far too different from LTW, and pretty much made from scratch with a completely different style. You should give it your own name, too, so people don't get it confused with Line Tower Wars. Name it Robbe Tower Wars or something.

    The only difference here is that the elemental towers got removed by tactically used towers which require more skill to place and use correctly.

    Perhaps I will create some extensions for the towers to give players back their beloved customization.

    I wasn't complaining, I was just saying that you made it all from scratch, so you might as well give it a new name, as the way it's played is entirely different, and I would consider it a different game. That's why I have both this, and your 1.65, in my maps folder, and I play them both.

    Although, I would appreciate it if you brought back branches into the basic towers.

    He must have failed, and clicked the wrong thumb... Now your map's rating will be ruined forever by some noob who just joined the forums...

    (copied from my previous comment on v1.65)

    For 2.06, hmm... You should definitely put the branches back together into basic towers. I liked the idea of archer splitting into guard tower and cannons later on, and blade tower splitting into blade and ogre later on; you should have kept that. I also really miss having the blade and ogre towers, they added some strategy as you had to make sure you used them in places where they could take advantage of their qualities.

    While you're at it, if you do bring branches back into the game, you could make the anti-air tower another branch out of the guard tower, and add a new "rocket tower" branch from the cannon towers, rocket tower having a smaller splash radius, but being able to target air. Basically, the archer tower would have a total of four different end-game results that it could end up as.

    The blade could be a branch out from the wall, which would then later split into more blades, or the mauler.

    I've got a few more ideas, but I'm going to save them for the map I'm working on, and then give the ideas to you after it's released. If you implemented them before my map was released, people would probably accuse me of stealing from you, and I would rather avoid being accused of stealing my own work XD.

    You have 5 from me for balance. Are there any bots?

    I know a very old version you have posted once on some german forum ^^ doesn't deserve a rating of 1/5... and since its a nice map, I 'll rate it correspondingly.

    hiho and thank you very much! =)
    I have already spoken with the 1/5 rating-user and he said that he will re-vote this ...

    The new version is partially very different from the old versions.
    Many new ideas have been brought to LTW during that time! :D

    edit: btw, I am currently making an AI for this map.
    Could anybody need such an AI for line tower wars - I mean a good one, not such crappy ones which already exist ... ;-)
