Medieval Villagers 1.08d + Open Source version

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.

By Sulfar


Development status -on indefinite hiatus //// Open sourced

[​IMG]
Important message
Version 1.08d is the last official version supported by me, therefore, it is the last safe version to play in battlenet.

To edit the open source version WEX editor is required

Since I am releasing my development version open for the community there might be some people who inject cheats inside their own versions, so beware of fan-made versions.


If you are interested in picking up the project send me a message and i will include a link to your map


Community versions of the map:

Lead by GabeValentine: [Life of a Peasant] - Medieval Villagers Open Source Project
Lead by shooterman56 Medieval Villagers 1.09 by Shooterman56




I am no longer able to maintain this project. It was fun to do but i've moved past w3 modding, between studying and developing apps I don't have time to commit to w3.
Sorry for taking so long to release the open sourced version, I couldn't finish cleaning it up and documenting everything but I hope it can be of use for someone. In case you have some questions about the source, need help to understand it send me a private message or post in this thread.

If you're about to check the source of the map, read the comments at the top of the trigger section, basic stuff is covered there. For information about certain triggers there is a comment at the top explaining in most of them.

As much as this is the end of w3 modding for me I hope this can be the start for some of you, good luck and happy modding!




You live in a dangerous medieval province and you decide to leave everything behind to embark on a epic journey full of friends, enemies and opportunities. The history is in your hands, what path will you choose? Will you be a deadly thief, a noble, the next king or a mighty hero?

1- Profession system:


This map feature the following professions in a very immersive yet user friendly level:


- Trading

- Breeding

- Farming

- Fishing

- Hunting

- Mining


2- Village construction and management:

There are a bunch of buildings you can get in your village and these are some types:

- Military: Such as a castle,training grounds, forge, training dummies, etc...

- Economic: Such as a warehouse, a housing system, a tavern, etc...

- Cosmetic: Some doodads like a bench, a table, flowers and more

- Profession Buildings: Like a wind mill, a barn or a hunting post.

- Defensive: Walls and gates

All buildings can be rotated in order to create a good looking village.


3- War system:



I wanted to encourage the players to have interesting fights and skirmishes but at the same time dissuade them to get on full scale wars, in order to achieve this I've developed this features:

- Training system: The units can train when in combat, there are 2 types of training, dummy training and real training, training with dummies is safer but slower and training units in real combat is faster, but obviously, way more risky.

- Wage system: Units have a salary according to their quality, meaning weak units will have low wage and strong units will have high wage.

4- Dynamic gameplay:


Face unique challenges every game, every game should feel different thanks to:
- The path system: You can choose between landlord, thief or Adventurer.
- The event system*: You can face the ancient werewolf, defeat the king and take over the province, become a undead necromancer and threaten the world, fight against the orc legions, etc...

Note: Werewolf, Dominion and Undead Legion events are released, the others will be released in future versions)

    I know of a very similar map, almost the same... It feels is if the terrain was only edited and some little changes we're updated as well as credits.
    However i might be wrong, i'll review the map with some of my friends and make an update post.


    Edit:

    Haven't played longer than a minute, this map is legit and really dope haha.
    I'll enjoy playing this often.
    5/5 stars

    Edit:

    Found a bug!
    I bought myself an additional hunter, he spawned behind the wall next to the market building and i couldn't get him out.

    Edit:
    Had a lot of fun in this map, than when i attacked a racoon with my character and a peasant selected it said not enough ram to process this command (I have 6gb ram) and it crashed the game :( I was hosting it and everyone was kicked :(

    Edit:
    Bug:
    Workers don't cut wood without axes, even though tool tip says they do.

    Another bug:
    Suddenly, for no reason what so ever my view of the map turned black except some parts of models. Couldn't play.

    edit:
    It got fixed, i minimized Warcraft for a while and its back to normal.

    Thanks for your feedback guys.

    I am not aware of any crash related to wild animals. In fact in all the tests I never saw a problem like that, I will try to replicate the situation, thanks for reporting.

    Sorry bro you could had worked a litle more on terrain.And it needs more details.FOr now its just an ugly copy of Fotn.If you want a better rating from me.Work on the terrain a litle bit more.The gameplay is pretty much the same as fotn which just makes it like a copy of the map which isnt worked on from since i dont know when.In start you select what you want to be.Why not make players choose that with items thru the games not like this.I dont want to ruin your motivation or anything but you need a lot more to work on for this is a chicken scratch.WOrk a litle on terrain.For now the rating is 1/5.I will fix my rating as you build that map on and on.If it becomes better then fotn i will give you 5/5.Good luck.

    Thanks for your feedback guys i really appreciate it. I am working to fix the bugs and i will have the next version available soon.



    I believe this is a more use friendly way to let players choose the path they want to take, besides that if you do not want to choose a profession at game start you have the option to choose later, it will just give you some gold to buy the starting items you wish to buy.


    The gameplay feels like FOTN because the game concept is similar to FOTN, its a mix of RTS/RPG and city building.

    It is true that some professions are similar such as hunting or breeding(because its the only logic way to implement those professions), but most of the professions are different( farming, fishing, mining and trading).

    Short Review:
    You need to have a new shop called "Trader Merchant" that sells pack horses because it removes Trade Good Barrel.
    Or have the Merchant shop sell pack horses instead.
    Bounty bail always go up to unpayable levels( Example: 2650650 gold needed to be bailed over 100000 gold limit)
    Bounty bail time always go up and never goes down.

    Question:
    How to go war against the Empire? I want to fight it without the bounty.

    Thanks for your review merchant i'll get to work on the pack horse issue right now.

    About the bounty bail, you get 1000 bounty for every empire citizen or soldier kill, so its pretty hard to get to unpayable levels. However i will change the equation that returns the bail time to decrease on higher bounty situations.

    About the war against the Empire i am sorry to tell you can not fight them right now and its not likely to be possible in the future.

    Questions/Suggestions:
    Can you add an item called "Coins" just like in FOTN? It's a good idea for these kind of maps about economy.

    Can you add more health or armor to the pack horses? The Hunting Assistant units are better a better choice when it comes to trading.

    Ships can't get under bridges. I suggest to make it either passable or give the ships a short teleport ability.

    Add Undead Event, it gives an epic battle between living and the dead and reduce civilians due to the fact that most of them are blocking entrances.

    Can add the option to build chests and have them to be invisible? It gives a sense of treasure hunting for thieves and bandits and it is related to the "Coins" item too.

    Have the weapon shop sell bows. It should have a normal attack, a special attack or two and it should cost mana but casting should be like the Hunting Assistant's attack speed.

    Error:
    Improved Hunting Sword doesn't do anything like the Hunting Sword. It doesn't drop skin of animals.

    I can actually fight the empire and making them my enemy after killing several soldiers but...

    can you make the buildings vulnerable? That way, it can feel like a good battle or a raid.
    Also, after destroying the buildings can you make the option of building the destroyed building as your own or the empire rebuilding it if it's being bought by anybody else?

    +rep for all the suggestions and feedback, much appreciated thanks!

    Thanks for your suggestions in this topic, Coin system will be coming when i release more in depth bandit mechanics, coin instead of reducing "inflation" will be a useful tool to prevent thief's from stealing your gold.

    I fixed this, now pack horses move faster and have more health to compensate the risk of losing the trade goods, also trade goods can only be carried by villagers and pack horses.

    It will be fixed for the next version.

    Undead Event and hopefully more events will be released soon enough, first i have to make sure everything is fixed and balanced and then i will start making new content.

    About the fact that most of villagers are blocking entrances i am aware of that bug, they get stuck at the edge of their region, I've been trying to fix this for a while :cry:
