Version 0.83

  • Fixed some crafting issues and bugs.
  • Moved Professor Antonidas from Rurodunumia to Embergia.
  • Fixed the Level 80 Dungeon boss guide drop.
  • Added some ascended boss mechanics and visuals.
  • Added a DPS-meter that calculates damage done/taken (healing coming in the future). Use "-dps" to show the multiboard, and use "-dps reset" to reset the values (before a boss fight or pvp battle begins for example).
  • Added a new residence "The Royals Quarter" which is a place you can enter when you have aquired the last honor badge.
  • Added an Honor System: Honor Points is aquired from doing quests while being at level 80. Honor Points can be used to purchase and upgrade badges that show your honor points, and it is also a way to save the honor points you have earned. You can show your current honor points by using "-honor".
  • Reduced experience you get from killing bosses in higher dificulties from 100%/200%/300% to 100%/150%/200%.
  • Added custom aura visuals for ascended items
  • Changed the way shops work to increase the difficulty of leveling, and enhance teamwork and interaction: You can no longer buy equipment (Armor, weapons etc.) from merchants, instead you buy crafting materials from them. This means you have to craft items as you level up instead of buying them directly.
  • Added Professions (kind of): Arranged professions among the different classes when it comes to Metals, Leather and Cloth. Warriors can only pick up metals (Mining), Rangers can only pick up leather (Leatherworking) and Mages can only pick up cloth (Tailoring). This means you have to cooperate to craft equipment. All classes can still pick up wood, flowers, berries and crops.
  • Reworked the spell "Insight": It now works as a buff which you can cast on allies. It instantly restores mana for the target and increases its life regeneration for a few seconds.
Version 0.85

  • Changed the size of gold coins so they are easier to click on.
  • Increased the amount of gold you get rewarded from killing mobs.
  • Following spells have been changed:
    - Cleave: Increased cleave dmg and radius (from 200 to 300 aoe and dmg from 25% to 50%).
    - Incinerate: Increased damage from 1.5x str to 2.5x str.
    - Brawl: Increased crit- and dodge chance from 10% to 20%.
  • Changed some quest regions so they are easier to pick up.
Version 0.86

  • Fixed some bugs that were reported from the discord channel
  • Changes to Boss-mechanics
    - Lvl 40: Shorter duration to get to the right fireplaces.
    - Lvl 50: Pigs now also have bash on ascended difficulty.
    - Lvl 60: Spawns elementals faster.
    - Lvl 80: Energy Flares now deal damage to nearby units upon dying.
  • Doubled the cooldown of silence from 15 to 30 seconds.
  • Reduced crate hp from 20 to 10.
  • There is now permanent daytime (trying to resolve the issue of vision being disrupted, may be changed back in the future if the problem still persists).
  • There are now more bosses to fight through completing quests in the Royal Quarter.
  • Traveling and learning abilities from trainers can now be done with a full inventory.
  • Professions are no longer required for crafting, all classes can pick up all crafting materials.
Version 0.87

  • Fixed a lot of leaking triggers (unit groups and locations).
  • Leaving players now gets removed from all multiboards.
  • Quest dialog button flashes upon acceptance.
  • Removed profession information and reworked the picking area.
  • Fireflies are now a thing.
Version 0.88

  • Fixed some reported bugs, (not all the typos)...
  • All major cities now has a fireplace
  • Summon Water Elemental and Summon Bear: 100% increased hp and dmg
  • Entangling Roots: Increased duration from 2 to 3 seconds.
  • Anti-Magic Shell: Reduced duration from 16 to 10 sec.
  • Sleep: Reduced duration from 10 to 7 sec.

Nice map and is one among the many maps in warcraft universe which could be fun to play. I love the gameplay, the terrain and overall the experience you will have as you play. This might have some flaws but some of them will never affect the overall...

    Seems like a great map, but I cannot pick up wool and leather in the starting area. So I can't craft anything.

    Try play with some other people that can pick up the items so you can help eachother craft. Warriors = metals, Ranger = leather, Mage = cloth.

    oh I didn't know that, I thought it was a bug. :D So there is not a way to pick up all items in single player?

    Yes, it is intended to be playable in single player, from 1-6. It's just easier to progress and get items if you team up with more people.

    If you play alone, so you can't craft some items. Please change the suggested players to 3-6.

    I disagree, you can find items by killing mini bosses , bosses and crates as well, if you know the map decent enough you can play it solo doing quests and crafting to gain levels super fast, i did that myself and its pretty easy (played solo with mage so far lvl 40 in a few hours already.)

    The only items you cannot craft playing solo are only those 2 items: armor and helmet, and like i said u can find those super easy from other places.

    My review for this amazing map!
    ~
    ~~Negatives/Bugs~~

    Let's start wth the negatives... hmm.. yea.. yea.... wait a second! THERE ARE NO NEGATIVES!:goblin_jawdrop:

    ~~Positives~~

    Atlast... after many years.. someone created a new and unique rpg map with save/load that is neither an old update of an old map from 10 years ago nor a boring korean/russian map with no english words and without quests/stories or interesting gameplay.

    >Sedonia RPG< created by JhonnyBoy arrived and saved the old war3 realm of rpg maps with its presence like a knight in shining armor!:wink:

    From the beautiful/breathtaking landscapes and cities of the different lands and islands of its world, to engaging gameplay with its simple yet at the same time complex battle system, spells and proffesions, i can certainly say that The world of Sedonia is quite a treat for lovers of rpg maps and casual players alike!

    Now what kind of discussion about rpg maps would this be without talking about the best thing about a rpg map, and those are 3 things:

    1.The Story and quests.

    Even tho it has a somewhat slow start, Sedonia rpg impressed me with it's beautiful Story line and the large variety of quests from arround its world, While playing/exploring the map you can feel immersing yourself more and more in this new world, living and playing alongside it's inhabitants/denizens and other players makes you forget about the real world similar to an expensive VR game experience.


    2.The Dungeons and Bosses that dwell in them.

    Every rpg map in order to be good it needs to test the player through a various degree of challenges and i think this map does it very well.
    Each mini boss and boss has its unique and themed spells/skins that work great with the overall design of their own zones and the world.
    The dungeons are super well done, with their different difficulty levels that can be chosen at the start gives the player a good indication of its future progress and tests its powers and limits making him want to try harder if he failed and explore different strategies to solve all the problems that he may encounter.


    3.The teamplay.

    The most important aspect of every rpg map is having fun and playing together with other people, because nothing is better than fighting monsters alongside your friends and enjoying each other's company and just having a blast.
    I can say that Sedonia rpg does that marvelously! Each aspect of the map from fighting enemies/bosses to completing epic dungeons and even crafting items/potions requires a certain degree of teamplay, now i am not saying its not indicating or beeing impossible to play solo, because it is possible and quite easy enough to do that, but playing with a team of minim 3 players will assure a far greater experience as it should be for every rpg map.
    This map took the concept of teamplay and upgraded it to a whole new level of awesome that i never saw in any other rpg map.

    In conclusion i highly recommend this map to everyone to give it a try because i am certain it won't disappoint you!:infl_thumbs_up:

    So much time has been put into this map. The environment is so immersive, it can just drags you into this new world, fantastic!
    My only comment so far is, we had trouble finding the exact spot to reveal the heretics in the mining village. We also got confused about if mining village could refer to the other places on the island, but maybe that was our fault.
    Also, some people would give the wrong quest item to the wrong person, and then it could never be completed, since it's in their inventory (we did not try team killing the NPCs, maybe that is the only solution?)
    The bag system removes all your armour / stats from items when you change from one bag to another, but that is not a big problem--- and it would take far too much time to change that. It doesn't even matter, since people will just change to bag 2 to collect stuff, then back to bag 1 for fighting.

    I enjoy maps where high lvl heroes don't necessarily have high hit points like this one--- sometimes when heroes have 300000+ hp and deal 20000+ damage, it makes it harder to care about the hero. Good job with keeping numbers low.

    Thank you so much for sharing this map~~.
    Probably one of the best RPG maps on hiveworkshop!

    Thanks for the kind words! I'm really happy for all the nice feedback i got on the map thus far :)

    As a direct reply towards droping items on the wrong NPC - There is a quick command "-drop" that drops items from nearby npcs. Not a perfect fix, but use if needed. I also have the same feeling about low numbers, it adds to the realism, the feeling of progression and makes it easier to calculate and overview the characters.

    TERRAIN
    For this, I could say that you did well. Your terraining skill is good and it is enhanced by the imported models. Nothing I could say about this.

    TRIGGERS
    Most of the triggers are well organized but some categories are copy of other category and was not renamed. But this is not a big issue, though. Yet, you need to address he following:

    1. Unit group leaks in your Destructibles and Doodads Category. see things that leak

    2. There are some location leaks too. These can be found in many of your regions.

    GAMEPLAY
    1. Most of this kind of game I played has someone or something guiding a new player how to start and play the game. Here, you just have three hints which says: 1. Learn spells from trainers inbthe city to the north. 2. Earn experience and gold from questing and gathering(detroying trees, metals, etc.) 3. Craft equipment bought from merchant. Newbee like me don't know where to go at first. Maybe you can tell newbies to roam around, find quests that fits their level. Because I see that quests in this map are based on the character's level.

    2. I think it would be nice to drop wolf skin if a wolf dies, not coins. It's looks un natural to drop coins from a wolf as they dont carry them. Dropping wolf skin to be sold will make this game much more real thab it is now. Also, some wolves are very static, they dont move. What if you let them roam around but setting a limited area.

    3. Remove other players in the multiboard if they are not playing.

    4. Flash quest dialog button when a quest is recieved, updated, or completed.

    The map is cool but these things should be done first.
    Thank you and keep on mapping.

    4. Quality Standard
    - Fully functioning gameplay
    - Acceptable terrain or visuals, must not be totally empty or monotonous. See: A Guideline to Terraining
    - No game breaking bugs /
    mostly leakless triggers. See: Memory Leaks
    - Tool-tips should have descriptions and broken icons (DISBTNs) should be kept to a minimum.






    "Mostly leakless". If there were leaks in his map, they were not felt to much extent in game with 4-6 people.


    The starting region has a unit with the model of Medivh which gives starter tips. There are further tips that build on the original tips given at various places, like the spell sellers/the crafting stations. The starting region is right next to the 2 main towns of that first island, so it is impossible to get lost.

    If he changed the item drop system to things like "wolfskin", not only would it require overhauling the crafting system (unless wolf skins did nothing at all), it would complicate the very simple and new-player friendly crafting system. If wolves were patrolling, it would be far easier to accidentally pull multiple creatures and have players die by accident.


    Errr, maybe you could elaborate on what you mean by "These things should be done first".

    If "mostly leakless" requirement applied in this case, then I could understand it being a requirement to approval, along with possibly removing players not in game from multiboard/maybe flashing quest dialog button, but most of the other things you mentioned seem more like suggestions (and ones that would not particularly improve the gameplay of his map in my opinion).

    Ah! Didn't realize the drop command was there. Actually, it might have been in the hints in game, but I might have just not even looked at it in depth.
    Also the music you added to the map was great.
    I also wanted to mention that I thought the warrior class did not benefit as much from the element specialisation system as much as mages/rangers, since the system improves damage/healing done by the hero, and the warrior class does not do much damage or heal.

    Credits given?

    Also, what about Inkarnate?

    You've integrated some pictures in the description that show as [IMG] probably because you've not made them public.

    Forgot to mention, it seems your game can never be hosted as "Sedonia Rpg" because Blizzard will autodetect it to be the word "Sodomize", so we could only host it as "Sonia Rpg".

    Not really, There are too many in his triggers specially in his use of regions and unit groups. I bet you saw this, too.

    This should be explained in-game not only in this thread. People will not browse up to this point of this thread to know about it.

    Not really. Golds are golds without any system that can be used using triggers or anything like this. Changing it to wolfskin is just making this game more of like a reality as this "wolfskin" can be sold for "GOLD"
    Actually, no. I cannot see why multiple creatures can be pulled. What do you mean, they will fight each other? If this is so, then make them as allies but not to the player. And why should the player die by accident if the roaming area of wolves are limited. Make these wolves never attack unless provoked.

    Everything I said.

    I also like the gameplay, the idea, and the terrain.

    Are you certain? This is a real issue that has to be reported on their forums.

    Thanks for the feedback, appreciate it i will take a look at the triggers you mentioned. I'm not a very experienced mapmaker so i knew i had some leaks and I am not always 100% sure about what can leak and how to fix it in a good way. Might have to read some more about that. However i thought it did not matter since it have never effected the gameplay over all the games we played and i have also tried to remove leaks in a lot of places. But i will take a look at it.

    However... Dear sir... are you being serious that the map won't be approved until i changed the items wolves drop to "wolfskin"? That sounds like it should be descision for the mapmaker in his design and i don't think you can make a request like that for approval. If you can, please show me the submission rules that state such a thing.

    Also removing players from the multiboard. Sure i can fix this, and i can fix it easy. But i still don't believe this a reason for non approval. Feels like you are trying to find stuff that could be improved, not something "necessary" for the map to approved. Correct me if I'm wrong and that this is stated somewhere in the submission rules, can't find anything about it. Same thing goes for flashing the dialog button.

    I'm not sure how much of the map you played, how much you tried to understand etc. I know there is stuff to learn, and i give a lot of hints and information about how to play the game. This is game design my friend, i don't want to hold the players hand from minute one. I wan't to give just the ammount of tools they need to explore and learn the game on their own. I know that is not suitable for all players. What i do not know is if this is suitable for a non approval. I also see that i have some players disagreeing with statements, who had a different experience. I say nothing about this, because what matters in this case is your experience.


    Fixed. Forgot i had to make the album i created public. Credits are now given.
