Rosaria Project II Version 1.03

Submitted by CloudWolf
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A Fantasy/Futuristic RPG set in a world where guns, swords and magic combine to create yet another epic symphony from the Rosaria Series.

It has a certain Final Fantasy feel too it, and is set in a world that is quite similar to FF7.

__________________________________________________________


This map aims to be action-packed and completely different to any other RPG you have played on warcraft 3 to this date. It includes several cinematics, secret commands, and a handy item system which changes the heroes appearance depending on the items equiped.

You play the role of 3 individuals who have awoken from a deep slumber within a laboratory, however, you have no idea who you were before waking. After the scientists brand you a "Failed Experiment", they try to dispose of you. Not willing to die just yet, you escape their grasp, and are on the run from the republic who will stop at nothing to bring you in.

Now you must discover who, or what you are, and find the answers.

This, is Rosaria Project II

__________________________________________________________


The map is bang on the B.net 4mb limit, so will work for online play.

Version 1.03:

- Now has a defeat condition, so the game will end when everyone dies

- New Secret Commands

- New Item

- FFA Arena now has a countdown before heal dissapears

- Buffed up the bosses some more

Version 1.02:

- The map is now protected

- Fixed a few typo's

- Buffed up the bosses a bit to make them harder

- Boss' Ultimate Spells now show names

Version 1.01:

- Fixed bug where the -Arena command can be typed multiple times, and messes up the arena triggers.

- Rebalanced a few parts of the game.

- Fixed bug where hero does not reappear after the gunship section.

    Rosaria Project II is a very good and entertaining RPG with good looking terrain. The abilities were simple but fit well into the gameplay. Good use of attachments, as well, I loved how a weapon/armor you equipped actually appeared on your heroes' model. The boss battles were quite awesome and there were lots of special effects and other eye candy that made those fights really entertaining. My only real problem is that the map got a bit to easy from time to time, almost to easy, perhaps adding difficulty levels would solve this, though. The lasting value of the map was also good. Finally, really good work on the description here on the Hive, it really "sells" the map.

    Approved with a 4/5 (recommended) rating

    In my opinion this map has potential and I like it good ide I have some my suggestion terrain is good so i think it would be better if you used 3rd person camera like this Re8eL's RPG Locked Camera System - The Hive Workshop - A Warcraft III Modding Site and narrow keys movement but this is only my suggestion and protect map with map protector cuz someone may steal your work and it optimalize your map a little.

    Yea :) The thought did occur to me to have a 3rd person cam, however, i decided againt it because the buldings kept blocking the camera view :D

    However, there is a 3rd person camera when you use the gunships about half way through the game :)

    As for protecting the map, I honestly dont mind if ppl want to create a mod or something :) I dont really play war3 enough to keep updating it myself :D

    but yes! Thanks for the review ^^ much appreciated

    The map is brilliant, imho.
    But easy - finished in in single player, only used one cheat which was 'thereisnospoon' and only on the last boss, after I'd got him down to 3000 and it was taking too long for my mana to regenerate.
    Secondly, I'm assuming there's more than one code, but unless I missed them it would be nice if there were hints for them except for the one after the endgame event.

    The camera system is fine as it is, as well. The helicopters were easier to use in third-person which makes a nice change as most maps with third person end up getting you caught in some obscurely horrible position where you can't move. I prefer free-camera because it makes the game more playable. Warcraft was designed for using the minimap to your advantage, and locking the camera cuts down your ability to high-tail it out of there.

    I've only played with Red hero so far, and he's quite well balanced but his heal is what made soloing so easy. I even managed to keep the unused computers alive for over half the boss battles. Giving red all the mana regeneration items guarantees victory if all he does is heal.

    I would like to see a greater variety of weapons available as well. So far the only other weapon I've seen is Masamune, and its going to cause problems as people desperately climb over the top of one another to try and pick it up.

    The appearence changing was a nice touch, but if possible limit to one item type per Hero ie One armor, one shield. I was carrying three shields and two suits of armor by the end, on top of Masamune. I regenerated about 45 mana by the time I needed to heal again.

    I'm giving it 5/5 because, despite it being easy, it's nice to play a map where you can just have fun. I don't think its difficulty is a flaw, really, because it means you can just sit back and admire the gameplay which is excellent.

    Really? :S Thats never happened before?

    Please let me know exactly what went wrong for you if you can lol :) Cus that sounds like a pretty major bug :D




    SPOILER
    ___________________________

    Also, answering another question, theres only one secret in the map for version 1.00. The first is an FFA arena if you wait for a bit after the boss, and type in the code. The winner receives a code to enter next time they play, which unlocks a secret item :) Want to know what it is?? Play the map ;) lol

    hmm... Actually, i think i know what might cause that :) Did you die whilst fighting Jethro? (The boss before the helicopter bit) I have a feeling the revive triggers there might not be correct :p

    EDIT: Right! hopefully that bug shouldnt happen now :) Ive also rebalanced a few parts of the game to make them harder :) E.g. more dmg on boss ultimate spells.

    Very very cool. I have hosted this a few times on BN and had a blast. It is a big improvement, a natural upgrade from your last map.

    Suggestions for future improvements: I think a difficulty scale is in order. More things to unlock. Though the map is short and simple, I feel like replayability could easily be upped. Perhaps even a diablo2 style "repeat" of the map with existing characters but drastically increased difficulty, where you continue to level but get even better items. You're a very talented designer. There's alot of unique RPG elements at work here. And though I dig the cut "spells" (which I recognized from your other map) I find them boring when a boss does the same one multiple times. And when they only really do damage. Consider more summons, auras, debuffs as a result of your cut screens as opposed to straight damage spells.

    Hope this was helpful.

    Damnit Cloudwolf you just keep giving me reasons to like the things you do, not only do you make great work but you also leave them open source, for... oh I don't know... learning from, or editing to play on LAN, just generally cool things. I've said it before and I'll say it again, great work and you're a great mapper.

    I really really really really hate when map-makers FORCE 3rd-person into the player. I don't know what crack these guys are smoking...

    It's nice to have the option if you desire it, but don't force your preferences onto others; I've quit a few maps because of the camera angle.

    Really neat, the storyline isn't very clear though, and its somewhat short.

    I love this map! I just played it with some friends and it absolutely amazing!

    Definitely the best warcraft map I've played! It's fast paced and I love the attention to detail. (The item attachment for example)

    The special effects are also amazing! The boss battles are really good too!

    Although it is short...

    Make more! xP

    5/5


    EDIT: Oh, I forgot to mention. You need to change the hotkeys of the abilities. One of them has the same as hold position.
