Mansion Murderer 0.54 Beta

Submitted by Kitabatake
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Mansion Murderer is not your average murderer map. This game is far more fast paced than other murderer maps and instead of only having the goal of "run away & hide", the players can also gather various items, attempt to kill the murderer and try to find the mansion key and then escape the mansion.

Gameplay
One of the players (chosen randomly) is the murderer and his goal is to kill everyone else.
The other players must survive, find the mansion key and then escape through the front door (at the start).

There is a timer displaying the killers life at the upper right corner of the screen. Once this timer reaches zero, the killer dies and the game ends. When the killer kills somebody the timer resets to 3min (unless he has more time remaining).

The game ends when all victims are either dead or have escaped the mansion or when the killer dies.



Features

- Custom chat system

Normal chat messages are floating texts above your unit.
You can also shout to all players by typing "-s" at the start of your message. However, shouts are anonymous.

- Quick-communication skill

No need to stop and type the basic stuff anymore.
You can just click on the icon and blurt out the "Hi", "Who are you?", "HELP!", "OH NOES!", etc... phrases

- Many items scattered around the mansion

Weapons, armor, weird mushrooms... They can save your life!

- Every weapon and armor can be seen on the wearer

Attachments!

- Game and Player statistics at the end of the game.

The whole course of the game will be revised at the end. The revision will show who was chosen as the murderer, who killed who, and also personal stats for each player (such as kills, items used, status)

- Custom user interface & loading screen

- Custom background music

Make sure to turn your wc3 music and sound on!

- Blood effects & Sound effects

When your character is low on health he will bleed. When your character is very low on health he will bleed more and express his pain with sound effects

- Custom lightning models & fog to make the mansion dark & ominous

You'll probably need to switch off the lights in your room to see properly

- Creatures that wander around the mansion trying to kill everyone

Don't even try to fight them without a weapon. Unless you really want to spectate

- Random murderer chosen every time!

It could be YOU!

- The mansion key is always hidden at a different location!

See how fast you can find it!

- Secret rooms

Actually they're very easy to find. Just keep your eyes open for levers sticking out of bookshelves

- Spectator mode

Once dead, you can use the left and right arrow keys to switch between players you wish to spectate

- Anti-camp system

Don't sit in one place for more than 15 seconds or you will face a nasty surprise!

- Anti-spam system

If you spam, you will be silenced for up to one minute.


FAQ

Q: What kind of game is this?
A: A murderer game. One player is the killer and must kill others. The others must find the key and escape the mansion or kill the killer or wait until the killers time runs out.

Q: How many keys are there? Where are the keys?
A: There is only one key and it is always at a random location. However there can be fake keys that look like the real one but they do not open the gate.

Q: How many killers are there?
A: One. He is chosen randomly

Q: What happens if killer dies?
A: The other players (that are still alive) will win the game. But if the killer dies very early in the game (before 3 minutes of gameplay), another killer will be chosen.

Q: I can't see anything!!
A: Switch off the lights from your room and you should be able to see just fine. Also make sure your brightness settings are reasonable.

Q: How to change camera?
A: The camera is locked to your unit and you cannot change that (at least not in the current version).
Besides, if the camera would be like the default wc3 camera there wouldn't be any challenge or feeling to the game.

Q: How do I know if I'm the killer?
A: You're told in the beginning of the game. Also, if you find your character having the skill "Killer Form" and "Shadow Run" then you most definately are the killer.

Q: How to shout?
A: Just type "-s <your message>"

Q: What if the killer finds the key?
A: Doesn't matter. The killer cannot pick up the key and it is indestructible.

Q: Where can I get a weapon?
A: They can be found on the floor scattered around the mansion

Q: Is this map protected?
A: No, from version 0.49 onwards this map is open source for anyone to edit!

Hints & Tips

1) Like said before, switch off the lights in your room to be able to see properly
2) Keep an eye out for various items scattered around the floor. They can save your life!
3) If you're the killer, use human form to travel faster and collect items
4) If you die, don't leave the game. You can stay and spectate the other players and learn from them. Also, after the game you can see the game and player statistics

    Map updated with some minor adjustments


    That was fixed with the update; creature count reduced from 5 to 4
    I have been planning such a feature. You would have to survive in the mansion, find the key and then escape.
    And you would have all the creeps and the killer after you...

    But that is for a later version
    Renamed them to "creatures" and I'm thinking of making them a skin to make them look creepier. But we'll see about that in later versions...

    Needs sounds and use BLACK minimap instead of picture. Map size COULD be smaller and terrain is almost same on everywhere. Could use some stairs or such.

    And Fresh Meat > Raakaa lihaa.

    Press Ctrl+S to hear them (Ctrl + M for music). Also make sure your speakers are turned on and that there are no earplugs in your ears.
    You can switch the minimap black by pressing one of the buttons next to the minimap.
    But I might do this on a later version
    I don't see how that would affect anything. Unless you mean the size of the actual mansion, but it's not that large really.
    I'm actually thinking of adding more floors to it on later versions. However, the floors would be optional and the host could set them inaccessible in the beginning of the game.
    There will be stairs once I have made more than one floor.
    Do you have any other suggestions regarding the terrain?
    That's what it means.



    +rep for the suggestions

    Update

    The map has been updated!

    New features:

    • Night vision skill for murderer (passive, only works in murderer form)
      • The murderer can now see a lot better in the dark (thanks to Viikuna for the suggestion)
    • More sounds
      • The creatures and murderer now utter gibberish more often
    • Less creatures
      • Creature count reduced from 4 to 3.
    • More life time for murderer
      • Murderer has now 7 minutes in the beginning and whenever he kills somebody, his time resets to 4 minutes (unless he has more remaining).



    It's a sequel to Elevator Murderer and has a lot more features compared to it's predecessor.

    "You can switch the minimap black by pressing one of the buttons next to the minimap.
    But I might do this on a later version"

    It wont remove the white selection square in it.


    "That's what it means."

    It still sounds worse.

    I don't know how to remove the white square.
    If you know how, tell me.

    Yeah the Finnish one sounds a lot better, that's why I'm using it!

    What the hell are you talking about?
    Setting a completely black minimap image would not remove the white square.

    In what map have you seen the white square been successfully removed from the minimap?

    Ah yes...

    But that isn't a black image, that is a corrupted image.
    Completely black image -> the minimap is black, but the white square still visible
    Corrupted image -> minimap completely black


    Hmm I will consider using that technique. Thanks!



    EDIT: Map updated

    New features:

    • Camera fixed
      • It should be easier to move through doorways now
    • Quick-communication skill
      • No need to stop and type the basic stuff anymore. You can just click on the icon and blurt out the "Hi", "Who are you?", "HELP!", "OH NOES!", etc... phrases

    The current version does not have AI, except for the creatures that wander around and are summoned to campers...
    It's a multiplayer game and the optimal way to play it is to play full house!
