The Hobbit

This map based on novel The Hobbit by J.R.R.Tolkien. It's prolouge of Lord of the Rings , tells Bilbo's story with the 13 dwarves and Gandalf the Grey. They try to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from Smaug the evil dragon.

In the map I placed custom items,made,custom units and techtree,abilities. The 13 dwaves are different as you will see(7 unique units, 3 mortar teams).

Otherwise: Original creator is ^witch-king^, but he brokes off the map, in original map was only original wc units, bugged techtree, error tiggers,poor terrain, and dwarves were pathetic weak, bilbo was mega slow and Smaug automatic died when bilbo entered in his hideout many cinematic speeches showed too little time.

    Endurance aura still has an active icon and please add some fresh custom spells and improve their tooltip a bit more.
    Maybe also ask someone to improve the terrain for you.

    Comment: The terrain's quality is quite low, it just makes the map unacceptable, try not to use blizzard cliffs, work with height tools and fill the terrain with bushes, grass, custom environment models, etc.
    Your map also lacks some originality gameplay-wise, it's way too generic.
    And don't use active icons for passive things, like a passive skill.
    And Bilbo's voice doesn't really fit.
    Also check the other things listed above.

    Map terrain is really bad, you should increase palyable map area.
    Also Items are random, I can understand weapons or ring but dunno why you added some like that gloves of haste item...

    Gloves of haste is extra item , and placed some other ones , and extra items are useful for Bilbo or Thorin do not have to use extra items.
    Well as I wrote its not final version, about the terrain it would be nice if you elaborate that, which part or all map(otherwise i placed many destructibes and doodads). Just I ask causes the terrain's big part made as it telled in the book,but I will check for better terrain type.

    And I going to make better description and update map soon.
    Have a nice day!

    marko9: I dont know how to make screenshoot currently.

    Here is yours and expected terrain.
    You should work on it, add special effects and lightning effects to it, especially to terrain where you created elves. Find some awesome models and import them as well, custom water model or some trees, rocks can improve terrain a lot, I needed 5 min to fix your terrain there (because I needed to create some objects, usually 2 or 3 min can do), so work on it, good terrain equal to better quality.

    Hard to choose map type, but I changed.

    Thanks for tip, y I see the difference, in this you are right, but in Desolution of Smaug I can't make green trees or simple forest where he burned the land and destroyed the all life. The elves, they arent the noble high elves like in Rivendell or in Lorien, they much less developed but they had advanced magics too and in book the elven caves were almost empty. What you showed it's ideal for 1 part of Mirkwood or Beorns forest(It's great help,awesome). Well I do all to make better terrain and thank you the suggests.

    Why killing...
    It sounds ,If I look at it your consideration , the all maps which processing Middle-Earth in Warcraft 3 , killing the original story and enjoy offal?

    Otherwise from Tribute and Love to book, I created the map.

    *You're still using active icons for passive skills (example Endurance Aura)
    *Add some actual custom spells, while some of the spells do fit the map, the rest just looks bad and honestly with the terrain's low quality you should at least try to cover it with some flashy/neat spells.
    *The terrain is still bad, especially in the first area, the terrain tile you've used looks bad in general, use more grass tiles and add some trees, bushes, etc.
    *Remove the typos you've done in the dialogue, for example instead of "your" it says "you", these kind of typos just make the dialogue look unprof. and 'stupid'.

    Map set back to pending. Also why are you using custom icons (probably made for warcraft 3), but a real photo for Gandalf? :/

    Alright I will search good spell models, and yes I know too Lordaeron summer worst Tileset ever in wc3... yes I will try to add more tiles and I try place some custom tree. But the problem with the custom trees the half map is a meele battle region, but I do what I can.I don't understand the icon thing totally but I will check the forum about it.

    The typos, ok i will fix this. I use icons causes I think better and more authenticer if I use the real one potraits for the heroes(in my opinion better watching them than warcraft ones). If you think the photos are very annoying , I can change them to other style.

    The custom icones made by the users is nice, I just don't like the one with Gandalf being real.

    As for the active/passive thing, basically:
    Active Icon (with border, something that can be used/cast)
    [​IMG]

    Passive Icon (no border, blackness, cannot be used, usually aura/etc.)
