    Hhhh... Here's my second WIP: Me wrestling with stupid bugs already. The map is basically laid out, and now I'm trying to get the hero's abilities to work. One of his abilities automatically fires when he learns the ability, but doesn't work at all when he actually casts it, and his lightning shield ability (based on Immolation) doesn't do any damage. I have no idea why bugs like this crop up, but I guess it's part of the map making process. I hope I can get them figured out soon!

    As a fast thing, you can just make the damage yourself with GUI and a area lvl based damage per second.

    A spell who is casted when you learn it? So you can only cast it one time, or what? Definetily, that sounds interesting.

    I'm starting to get close to finishing the map. At least in terms of technical functions, unit spawns, AI, items and everything else.

    Stuff that remains:

    One boss fight.
    AI for 2 units.

    Then balancing everything to make the experience enjoyable, and possible, without being too easy.

    Other minor things:

    Loading screen.
    Boss fight music.
    Hero attack/defense/primary attribute icons.
    Descriptions and so on.
    Polish and paying some attention to details.
    Maybe introducing some traps and secrets if time allows it.



    Would love to see some more WIPs or get updates from the rest of you!
