Rise of the Gigantes
v1.35


Introduction / Author's word

This is few hour gameplay long single player RPG. Map is fully voice recorded, it also contain various models as well as two ancient-greece-like music tracks so that is the reason of its size. Map contain over 40 custom units, 18 custom items, certain spells are up to choose. Gameplay is intense, it sometimes require to be smart or to be very quick, it is also needed to know game mechanics to play successfully. Map contain two game modes: Normal & Advanced. Advanced one is harder, it also may produce more items, enemy units or even unit special ability changes. There are 4 terrain and environment art types. Map is not protected. It took 18 days to create the map. (2012-06-20 - 2012-07-07)

Why to pay the time and download? Because it is challenging, intense, atmospheric and skill & insight requiring game even though it is rather short. It is also based on an interpretation of ancient greek myth. I am also not planning to add new hero or something, I am not planning to reduce its size as well. Map may cause leaks, but it is single player so it is not a matter of importance, leaks are minor. Feel free to do with the map whatever you wish.

Storyline

Time ago, Zeus the deity of the skies imprisoned dangerious and evil titans in the pit of Tartarus for the greater good. The titans were the blood of Gaia the goddess of Earth, sons of her. Tremendous anger filled Gaia and she now seek to dethrone Zeus himself and to unleash her anger upon earth.

She gave birth to the tribe Gigantes and one creature known as the father of all monsters. She sent the creature and the tribe of giants upon earth and Zeus in order to exact her avenge.

The horrors pierce earth like never before and it seem to be far from ending.

    who is the better god to worship?

    ZEUS?

    ATHENA?

    OR THE OTHER one?


    BTW, Cheat Detector Doesn't Work :p I cheated Keysersoze to buy armor and
    Whosyourdaddy to kill Non-boss enemies because it detects when i kill bosses and
    mini-bosses with whosyourdaddy :D so make it better

    All gods are good as they have their own benefits combined with certain blessing. It is balanced.

    Yeah, anti-cheat is very minor and simple, it may detect only large amount of resource increase and attacking only certain bosses. It was made just for simple warning not to cheat. I could implent anti-cheat system by Kitabatake which would fully protect from cheats, but I don't see a big point in it after all. A decent player wouldn't use cheats anyway.

    Give it a shot. :)

    I honestly have no idea why it crashes, I only had one crash in a ton of testing savings.
    Haha, I had to keep the voice, emotions would break commander's unique sound. Glad it was funny. :)

    Review:

    Terrain: 4\5
    I personally like the terrain, though i think typhon's tomb must be darker. Also, the leaves should be under trees.

    Spells\Abilities: 5\5
    The spells are very good, i like them, nothing to say here.

    Gameplay: 4\5
    Nice gameplay, a little hard though. Especially on the 2nd boss and the ''Butcher the Resistor''.

    Result: 4\5

    Overall a very nice and fun to play map, just it has some little issues. If u fix them i'll increases my rating to 5\5! :)

    hey dude, that's an awesome map you got there! terrain it's self is wonderful but i found some minor problems while playing:

    Ctrl+C will unlock the Camera, you should make a loop trigger and lock the camera into the unit every 2-3 seconds.

    There is a point in the first town that you can see the ground "move", watch video below:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmbJ90BVcE0

    i only played 3-4 minutes since i got stuck in the first town and didn't know how to leave o.o
    since i have a lot of free time nowadays i might make a gameplay video soon for fun!


    good luck with your project & 5/5 +rep from me;)

    Thank you for your replies, guys.

    @Sin'dorei300

    Hmm, the Tomb is rather lighty because of all these lights from the ceiling, there are many of those and it makes it really bright, I personally find it cute this way. You are right, leaves should be under trees, but it doesn't look much of leaves to me though. The leaves tile is too blurry from up high and it works really well with grass tile to keep the variaty colors of the ground.

    Well, if you find it difficult, save before approaching the boss / Butcher and try few times if not being successful. Finishing entire game without effort is not what I sought. :) Try Advanced after Normal, it might ask even more effort.

    @xorkatoss

    The ground do not move for me at all. It must be something with graphics options I guess. I checked tiles' height. The one that moves is different from each other by nearly 60 height points. It should not be happening. I guess it is your PC's resolution's or objects quality fault.

    Look closer and you'll find way out. :)

    Thank you for your ratings, guys.

    hmm at first i thought that was caused because i had everything on Low, then i changed everything on High and turned Unit Shadows and Occlusion ON but i still had the moving floor O.O perhaps the problem is my Graphic Card or smth?

    well anyway it's not anything special:p

    cheat control.. I wanted to curse you to high heaven :p

    though because of the cheat, i discovered something strange, at least for the first boss, he's invulnerable and rushes at you, and you have to drag him lill bit along the way you came so you can use the friken horn... then the freak anti-cheat defeated me

    so much for lazy playthrough.. and i didn't even figured what model of mine you used >/

    Haha. Well, I don't really understand what have you discovered. You drag the boss, use horn and you get defeat? When you blow horn, it becomes vulnerable and you can attack him. If Enkelados is killed too fast, there is cheat detect. There is no way to kill it without cheats and trigger cheat detection.

    I am using your model Bat'leth, it really fit well with Tarrasque's model Armored Ghost, picture below.

    Just don't cheat! My anti-cheat system is very lacking, you can trick it by checking out the triggers in World Editor, or you can delete it completely if you wish to go through the map with your eyes closed. :ogre_hurrhurr:

    Well, maps that says those "Map file is too big" can only be played in Single Player. Ill give you more info.... Any map that exceeds 8MB cannot be played in LAN and will say "Map file is too big". In single player, you can play any map... there's no limit to it. So I Prefer PLAY THIS GAME At SINGLE PLAYER NOT IN LAN.

    Glad I helped you!

    I think he meant that it is hard to download due to low connection speed. Or he actually play on lan?
    Put this map in my Maps folder in Wc3 directory and launch game, go Single Player and open map there.
