    Ah yeah, it just used a default version for the map

    Also forgot to mention in my final upload that AI is available to play against for my techtree

    How is everyone else's techtree coming along?

    I'm just about done. Just making a few minor tweaks, items and had to update the Damage Engine.

    I'm mostly updating it because of the compatibility issues it has with 1.31. An outdated damage engine on an updated Wc3 can freeze the game.

    oh yeah, that too
    the minor tweaks are the hardest part, finding all the things that need last minute touch ups

    I'm mostly finished with my units (just got 2 abilities left for 1 of my casters)
    Started working on my heroes today. Finished 1, just got some polish left.
    Then i need to connect all the research & make it playable.

    I was planning to do a better presentation like this:


    wipcc.png


    But I was really short on time, and filling up every detail was massive work. So, apologies if the entry's delivery seems rushed, because it is. It would have look so much better, but doing it was really cumbersome. I'll just let you guys gaze on this single masterpiece.

    "Sorry about the insufficient presentation"?? You guys are ridiculous. xD All this crazy graphic design stuff...

    Back in my day we would have a screenshot with the Faction name in Comic Sans. Possible a wall-o-text to describe it. Maybe, if you were lucky, a badly-photoshopped cut-n-paste of the Blizzard techtree images!

    i remember when uploads were lucky to include so much as a screenshot saved in the lowest format at the time submitted to tinypic
    and then the techtree itself was usually lucky to be completed within the due date anyway so the contest would get an extension and then people would mostly take stabs at each other

    Daaang. Cool presentations, guys!

    I'd like to request a week's extension. There have been some hitches from my end.

    oh damn, that sucks
    i'm sort of in a position where there's not really anything i'd want to do with a week's extension myself, but i'd also like to see your entry come to completion
    what is the usual procedure for these things?

    It's not really uncommon that a Techtree Contest gets an expansion. For one, I think Techtree Contest is the most underrated one out of all the other contests. Making a whole new race is not as easy as it looks. It requires a lot of work and it needs you to have some sort of balancing experience so your race is not insanely overpowered or underwhelming as hell. Getting creative to make a race is the hardest part. You have to make everything look new so that it doesn't seem like a reskinned vanilla race. This includes new abilities, distinctive unit roles, and new ways to make your race awesome such as custom building and training system.

    I approve of an expansion. People need time to make a fantastic race.

    Well, an extension can be useful now. I'm very tight with times, and I'm deleting a lot of good ideas and features.

    I dunno much about whether it's easy or not, I'm more wondering about how fair it would be on people who were able to complete on time, but also who can actually grant the extension - since the extension is requested by the host's team, does this mean it goes on to a moderator decision?

    I understand the unfair about the extensions, but, per example, you can use that time to update your entry, maybe improving the balance, or implementing the features that you probably have not developed, either due to lack of time, or the complexity of them.
