i knew it was bad... im notsogood at the tiling thing. i think trolls should go at the bottom and spiders at the top. with the spider worshippers in the middle. and the trolls should be able to rescue the sacrifices to the spiders from cages. but ill trigger it to where the second you rescue them a swarm of ten baby spiders will attack you so be on your toes. if the spiders eat the sacrifices guess what? they get ten free baby spiders! oh noes. what should the spider worshipper hero be? a nerubian? and i still dunno how to resize? the big mamas need to be HUGENORMOUS! like almost the size of the large mountain at the mountain range near the edge.

{EDIT}
srry for double post but i just wondered what songs should i put on this for -music commads? i was thinking some disturbed, pantera, metallica, but there is ONE SONG I AM FOR SURE PUTTING ON! RUN TO THE HILLS BY IRON MAIDEN! ROXXORZ!

Instead of saying sorry use the edit button. You have double posted twice on this thread. When a moderator sees this you will get more Negative rep.

Trolls vs. Spiders
>The suggested players is 2-8? There is one player present to choose.
>Something written on the loading screen about story or gameplay can help.
>You have given too much for map description. Writing down that there are 4 spider mothers gives away the secret.
The terrain needs different tiles. Trolls on that tile? Wouldn't that appear odd? Also using only single tile is not very good idea.

Also where are the units? I did not see any unit on the map. Only terrain. I had to use iseedeadpeople to know if there existed anything in the map except the terrain.
Did you upload an incorrect version?

i am not done terraining yet, and as for trolls looking weird, i am changing the story a bit. its just a tile version... no units yet. just a preview... the version is almost ready for alpha, you want in? and while im on here today, where are screenies saved to? (edit) i also need to know how to get rid of those godforsaken unit timers! -this can wait- ALSO! heres the near version. can some1 set the victory defeat conditions (force two defeat if BIG mama dies, individual players lose in force 1 lose when hero dies.) i cant find that junk in the editor, so here ya go!

Hello, so I just tested your map and there are some faults too it so I'll just explain to you of what I thought of it.

Negatives

- There's no option of what heroes are units the player gets too choose from your stuck with what you got. I like the option to choose what hero and units I get to play with, could really help the game play.

- Of course you probably already no the terrain has no elaboration, you could use more of the terrain palette, environmental/doodad/ destructible props, to make it look more natural.

-- Concluding with --

The tile set you've chosen may not be the best for your map. I suggest using Loaderon Summer, or Ashenvale. Just the environment of spiders is dark and creepy, I find you could express it a lot more with each of those tile sets than the hellish look it has right now. Same with the trolls.

Positives

- Some of the ideas you've mentioned I hope you implement them well cause they sound creative.

-- Ideas --

- Possibly that can help the game play of your map is resizing the map, and having swarms of enemy units come in different lanes. Like having standard melee and range spiders and trolls, and when the player chooses a hero it can benefit the standard melee and range trolls/spider. Like lets say I chose the blade master troll hero all standard troll melee units have a chance to critical strike. Or if I chose Poisonous Spider hero all standard spider melee units will get a poisonous attack.

And

if your still wondering on how to change the size of units here it is

You pretty much select the unit and go to its scaling file and change it to however size you want.

OH MY GOD I LOVE YOU KILLZERKER! i did the unit resize animation trigger, but obviously yours is easier. ( is the other players working?) some1 says the other players dont work, and trollmages are unselectable, but thats one person, please check, and im gonna terrain better after the testing (spider lair will be dank and creepy,

Hey again, I finished your map. Tell me what you think. I chose Ashenvale because it's one of the tilesets that fit with spiders and trolls.

To change the size of a certain unit go into your Object editor and create a custom spider unit. On that spider unit click it and go to the Art-Scaling Value. There you can change its size.
