Phase Killer -1.1.2-

Submitted by Dark.Revenant
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This version is optimized with Vexorian's Map Optimizer. If you need help with something in Phase Killer related to mapmaking, just ask me.

Phase Killer

• Multiplayer-Only - Technically it can be played with one player, but the game isn't exactly going to progress. It's impossible to write an AI for this kind of map with our current technology.

• Twelve Players - 6-12 players are recommended. Any less to start with degrades the quality of the game.


Premise

Stay alive and try to acquire better items over time if possible

Three Roles:

- Townsfolk - No special abilities other than having 6 item slots as opposed to the phasers' two. The one condition to win is to kill the Phase Killer. You can still win even as a ghost, but it becomes more difficult that way.

- Phasers - Half of the players in the game, rounding down, become Phasers. Phasers have the ability to Phase, which moves them to and fro the Aetherworld. Phasers are the most helpful for hunting down the Phase Killer, but ironically are the ones to be considered as the potential Phase Killer.

- Phase Killer - One of the Phasers in the game is the Phase Killer. The Phase Killer has the ability to phase, transform into his natural form at will (albeit with a slight negative health regeneration), disguise himself as a different player (changing his name and color, but not his pings), upgrade himself using collected souls, change his form/specialization at will, and use a handful of combat-related abilities.


Features

• Three Dimensions - There are three dimensions: the two standard ones, the normal world and the aetherworld, and the harsh hard-to-reach omniworld. There are several ways to go between the normal world and the aetherworld, but the most direct route is through the ability possessed by Phasers: phasing. The omniworld is reached through the omniworld gateway after it has been activated by a specific item combo.

• Chat System - The chat system is customized with interesting features that allow for more unique gameplay. Especially interesting is the auto-garbled speech that one may experience...

• Life after Death - If you die, you become a ghost. As a ghost, you can instantly phase between the dimensions and use a short-range teleportation ability. Ghosts also use mana to talk in two ways: short-range floating text or public chat (the latter of which is auto-garbled). Ghosts also have a chance at resurrection if someone manages to acquire Arcanum (good luck getting whoever has one to consume it by reviving you; it has a really good passive ability and is very tough to get).

• Items. Lots of Items. - The bread and butter of Phase Killer is in the items, which are spawned throughout the map on the ground. Some items are more common than others, others only appear in the Aetherworld, etc. However, the real depth to them is the combinations possible by, well, combining them by moving one item over another in your inventory. There are currently more combination-acquired item types than randomly-spawned item types.

• Good Reading - Somewhat of a tip of the hat to Wilderness Survival, every item combination (in some way or another) is depicted in the various books that can be found lying around the map. Some books are much harder to decipher than others, and one is even readable only in the aetherworld.

• Zombies - Players may be semi-revived as zombies, controlled by their masters and possibly even traded like slaves between players. Zombies have no inventory but are powerful in combat and can become human by consuming someone's corpse.



The above is basically a general consensus of Phase Killer, and by no means lists everything in the map. If you want to experience it, I suggest you play it.

    You have to understand the game isn't meant to be a "you're on your own" type of game. Obviously, there is a bit of distrust due to the Phase Killer being out and about, but the only way to win is to work together. Humans are best for fighting and phasers are best for chasing/running/making items.

    Bug found

    Yo dark.revenant@azeroth, i found a bug in your game while playing it (yes the newest version), the glitch is that while equipping or unequipping heavy armor (i didnt try with the other armors so i dont know if its the same with those) if u click on an item to pick it up b4 it finishes equipping or unequipping then all items in your inventory except for the armor disappear. Hope you fix that, its a good map otherwise.

    I really have no idea why that would happen, Fires-of-War. It must be a Warcraft III bug, because all of the item transactions are done in the instant the cast time finishes. Picking up an item should either not do anything or at least cancel the cast. The fact that it doesn't cancel is weird.

    At least you kept your armor, otherwise you would have been boned.

    Reading books never harmed someone. And really, what do you think will Matches do? Or Torches?

    Not a bug. You were out of power (where gold should be). Anyway, don't worry about that anymore. Forms are handled much differently now.

    Out of power?! can't be I have 12 power at that time, can't find the change form thing on the command card somehow, seem to be replace by this " killer sight" . (don't joke with me I am never out of power, I was killing like hell everytime I am a killer) and in your change log I find out that 0.2.5 is not relesed, yet somehow some one has it and host it.

    You're not supposed to change forms anymore. It's a random choice now.

    I'll include a dialog at the start so you can pick it, though.

    Oh, I see, I must be badly out dated and miss the change log, and by the way read my post on clan com's forum.

    That's strange, I only get 1 or 2 leavers tops. Usually, leavers only leave when they die. Well, there was that one time, but let's not talk about that.

    Anyway, you were probably just unlucky.

    I loved the map, but when the terrain got edited it caused me to lag even with the people I always played with. Now, sadly I stopped. But awesome job anyway.

    Well, there really isn't much I can do about that. The only thing I can suggest is have your friends host with Dota Client, VCK, or PLC so that the delay is minimized. Some computers just don't do well with lag...
