Great map dude. I've always liked ORPG maps with professions and your profs seems to be integrated beautifully. Being able to ride on top of your mount is sure a plus but is it somehow possible to not carry the mount item and still ride on your mount?
Nice ORPG Vunjo, continue with the good work. But i think your map need some balancing, look what i got after 3~4 hours of gameplay. I dont think that brewing is the most important prof , i only did it few times to level at start :s, that things that do %stats are better. Edit: that "Imba Pro" items are PRO ! :3 Oh add me on garena too *.* my nick is OoLoLz
I'm a ORPG Fan and every ORPG that has an interesting HUD and/or more than Str, Agi and Int as Attributes, be sure that I'll Dl it to test.
-The first thing that happened to me when I tried your game, was the camera. It's funny, nice and all but it has problems you can't catch an item close to you if a wall or mountain is at your 5 o'clock, you need to search it in the window with the mouse. The camera invertion don't work so Insert and Delete buttons that rotates the camera a bit don't work.
Either don't let items spawn close to mountains
or fix the camera in some other position or make an "Smart camera facing" to solve the problem
or unfreeze camera's rotation, it's pointless can't rotate the camera which doesn't chase your hero.
-The second thing is the buggy quest system. When you or any friend completes a quest, it still count as incomplete at the Info menu, which consumes system memory that blows in connection and finally after about 3 ~ 4 hours playing with 6 persons depending on their system, the game will crash because of memory loss.
Just make completed quests Completed! duh.
-The third thing: Guess? Yeah you guessed. It's your Menu at "ESC".
The menu is there for what? Show the skill level of your character?
I know that making a menu like this to show messages on the screen isn't a easy job to do because of the many you have to type. Yeah I know some of vJASS too.
But the menu at my point of view, is being useless because the only "game function" you do there is to enable/disable music, the professions buttons are only tutorials about each profession, they don't show your related level of each skill and the "stats" button only shows what we already see, the amount of STR, AGI, INT and the 2 other attributes which can be found by opening the "hero train" menu (Red "+") or by pressing "O".
Make the menu more informative by, instead of simply showing infos about the professions, adding the actual level of each profession, what items can be made (yeah, it's beginning to copy The Black Road ORPG 1.3) and how much leasts to next level.
In the Stats menu show, instead of we already know, the maths of the character, like total reputation, damage of skills (the formula of perception x 0.1...), REAL STR, AGI and INT because when you get those 2% str,int,agi bonuses, if you grab 100, it doesn't raises your attributes, because the stats are "integer" based. Make them "real" or "float".
The map is Too damn Easy! You Don't need many skills in it, just a lot of time.
Make it harder and cut off that EXP Bonus thing. It's for newbies.
I didn't played the map for too long, because it's boring. It doesn't have much action, the creeping areas are not well distributed, the map is still not balanced and it's easy. Easy maps are boring.
Also the best map in hive isn't supported by them, because it was removed due to the lack of interest by the people over the map. The best ORPG game I ever player for Warcraft III is Dark Invasion II. Yes, the mapmaker stopeed the job because no one was playing it for, as them "said", the map was too difficult and incomplete and the hive removed it from the database.
Your map isn't bad but it need a lot of improvements to be considered Excelent or "the best of HiveWorkshop".
Just curiosity, OoLoLz is from the same country as mine and it's Brazil. We are at GMT -3.
And don't think bad of me, you like [H]ouse. He's the bad guy. XD
You should use the "smooth" tool in the terrain editor. It makes me cringe seeing your screenshots.
And if I could make a suggestion, don't import custom models and textures just because you can, and you want to replace blizzard ones. Sometimes simplicity is better - don't sacrifice download speed with ugliness.
That being said, I'm voting for approval on this map.
Well here comes the answer on that with make spells more powerfull?
ERHM ARE YOU NUTS?
Its to overpowered allready!
I can solo EVERYTHING and i dont get a single little dmg on me!
I have 100% armor reduction on my pally (think it was that one?)
litch does like 7 dmg on me... and i have enooormus life and hp reg...
How about... removing the add stats potions?
Makes the game EASY!...
I mean if you play long enough... you basicly end upp soloing the game...
Make it a solo game then or nerf the potions ALOT...
This terrain has been used in other rpgs. And its the worst i've ever seen.
The english spelling 1/5,
