    @Ujimasa Hojo I have found a bug in your Battle for Supremacy maps. Whenever I click the Barracks as a Blood Elf the game crashes and an error report appears. This only happened on 1.30 wc3. When I had 1.26 and previous patch this didnt happen.

    Also if it is not too much to ask can you add the Illidari to your Theramore Isle BfS maps? I really enjoy the BfS

    That's a problem I won't be able to solve anytime soon however. Latest patches kind cracked a lot of custom games.

    • Pact of the Forsaken
    Faction Information


    Backstory


    PREMISE: Thrall's Horde abandons the Eastern Kingdoms completely instead of allying with the Forsaken after the Third War. This allows third party groups such as the Scourge, Dark Horde, and Gurubashi Trolls to overrun the Alliance forces.

    The Forsaken becomes isolated. The Blood Elves of Quel'thalas resort to more reckless use of spells causing majority of them to devolve into Wretched. Meanwhile the Dark Iron Dwarves get evicted from Blackrockspire by the triumphant Dark Horde. With no other choice, these disparate forces form their own Alliance.

    • Ebon Crusade
    Faction Information


    Backstory


    PREMISE: The fight between the Alliance and Horde escalates during the raid on Icecrown Citadel. The Alliance eventually wins but with huge amounts of casualty. The Alliance survivors eventually succumb to the Scourge and are raised as the Lich King's champions.

    • Kiddin' Tor
    Faction Information


    Backstory


    PREMISE: Instead of becoming obsessed with Necromancy, Kel'Thuzad delves into the spell used by Gul'dan to speed up the aging of Orcs to increase the numbers of the Old Horde. He successfully reverse-engineer the spell allowing him to de-age himself. He forms his own subfaction within Dalaran which eventually grew in numbers effectively taking control of the city.

    • Alliance of Darnassus
    Faction Information


    Backstory


    PREMISE: Sylvanas begins the Blood War by attacking the Eastern Kingdoms instead, destroying Ironforge and Stormwind. The Western Horde races and Quel'thalas practically abandons her but her military might is compensated for by the amount of dead resurrected.

    With Alliance power shifting towards Kalimdor, the Night Elves and other Alliance races gather their forces to prepare a counter-attack. While the Night Elves maintain their independent military hierarchy, the other groups such as Gilneas, Kul Tiras, Highborne, and Exodar coordinate their forces more closely.

    • Holy Arathi Empire
    Faction Information


    Backstory


    PREMISE: Calia Menethil makes herself known allowing the different groups of interest to rally around her after the Third War. Balnazzar's plot to infiltrate the Crusade is also uncovered and prevented. This prevents the Crusade from splintering albeit their are still internal divisions lingering. Calia makes a deal with Sylvanas. The latter trades Capital City in exchange for military aid in recovering much of the scourge-infested portions of Quel'thalas.

    From the newly recovered Capital City, Calia is crowned Empress of the newly formed Holy Arathi Empire, considered to be the spiritual successor of the old Arathi Empire. Their main military are the Crusaders, which have two subfactions: the Scarlets led by the Mograines and the Argents led by the Fordrings. Despite their imperial claim however, their main strongholds are only within the Tirisfal Glades and the Western Plaguelands. Despite their nominal support for the empire, other territories such such as Hillsbrad, Southshore, Ambermill, Pyrewood, and Stromgarde remain practically independent.

    Author's Notes:
    • Will stick to classic models. Maps are structured around Patch 1.26. Requires third party tools to get around 8MB limit for multiplayer.
    • "Skin" selection will be based on triggers implemented in my other maps.

    @Ujimasa Hojo, will this new Altered Melee map series function in the same vein as your other map series? I.e. having from the start have different factions already for the four base races ( Western Alliance = NE, Eastern Alliance = humans, etc.) and just have the ability to choose a different custom faction race or have the four base races (human, orc, undead, night elf) and have the option to choose other faction race?

    And as for the name of these new alternate faction stories, maybe you can draw something from WoW's Caverns of Time, and the WoW books War Crimes and Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects.

    Edit: and is this explicitly just skins change of the preexisting units & buildings? No custom units & buildings?

    • You're right about skin selection. Basically the same as Struggle for Azeroth's unless something better comes up.
    • So far, all the factions in my mind don't really draw upon any of those universes.
    • By "skin", there will still be custom models. Kinda like how there are "Premiere skins" in MOBA games where the model can be radically redesigned but gameplay is the same.

    Will this mean that you won't be making anymore updates to your pervious map series? Like the revamps or map specials?

    Sadly no. I might create a separate project merging all the factions there into one but I want to focus on this "skins" project.

    @Ujimasa Hojo, what's new with the SFA Broken IslesB map? And is it possible for you to drop a download link here that's separate from the SFA Map bundle so as not to have to download the entire bundle just for that one map?

    I added a new version of the Broken Isles map where the islands are connected by "land bridges". It's for when you're playing with the AI because they're not really good at utilizing the zeppelins and boats.

    Ahh! I see! Is there a chance to have that map downloadable separate from the SFA map bundle though? Like a link on this thread? It takes quite a while to download the entirety again just to have that updated map? @Ujimasa Hojo

    By the way, ALPHA versions are now up for my new project: Attack of the Multiverse (see Table of Contents in First Page). So far, only Human skins have been added.

    Did a test play of the map, it looks pretty good at the moment only thing I'd suggest changing is removing the Draenei from the Alliance of Darnassus and adding in a Gilnean Hero representative to balance out the racial heroes, or maybe replace either the Kul Tiran Archhydromancer or Sea King. Maybe boot out the Exodari Draenei from the faction since they only have one representative in it and makes it feel like they were just added in as an afterthought, maybe instead bunch them in with the NE race to form another faction in the same Altered History?

    Really liking how the AotM series feels like Heroes of the Storm with the stories that come with each faction!

    Not everything is final. It's early in development after all.

    Anyways, the Horde "skins" are up as well.

    The foundations of the Undead and Night Elf "skins" are up. Plenty of missing units but at least there is direction.
