The Races


Races
A small list of pros and contras for each race can by seen ingame.
WoW
The World of Warcraft race was my first race for this TD and somehow just for testing. Now it's more a fun race and contains towers from MC,BWL and AQ.
Outland Alliance
The Outland Alliance contains the bloodelf forces of Prince Kael'thas and the Nagas controlled by Lady Vashj. Their leader is Illidan under the cotroll of Kil'jaeden.
Scourge
The scourge race contains some of the mightiest ingame towers. The scourge is commanded by Arthas and his minions.
Hint: Some of the Scourge towers need 4x4 squares.
Nature
Under the command of the druids and keepers the nature sends gnolls, trolls and spiders into battle.
Hint: The towers are not directly builded - build a dwelling and upgrade it
Demons
The demons are a part of the burning legion. They send phaseshifters which can create rifts and portals to summon more and stronger demons to unknown territory.
Hint: The towers are not directly builded - build a portal/rift and upgrade it
Creeps
The creeps are tamed by mighty Tamers. They select the strongest creeps and lead them to battle.
Hint: The tamer requires upgrades from his tamer camp to build improved towers.
Goblins
The goblins are very well known in all explosive things. They use rockets, mines and bombs to stop their enemies. Their leader is Armageddox who gives everything for a good war.
Hint: The goblins require upgrades from their HQ to build improved towers.
Underworld
The underworld forces are commanded by Vor'tax the Shadowking. He leads his minions from the shadows to the mortal world. The underworld race has many powerful spells.
Nightelfs
The nightelfs send their ambassadors to dangerous regions and they will decide which troops are needed for the battle. The nightelfs have powerful spells and strong creatures.
Mercenaries
Daelin Proudmoore survived the battle with Rexxar and is now collecting new forces to lead his forces into battle for the one who pays the most money. They are also able to forge mighty weapons.
Soultemplar and Keeper
The Soultemplars were a secret order of the Silverhand. They devoted their lifes to the Soulpower, a power that inhabits every being, and they found a way to controll it. The Leaders of the Silverhand banished the Templars from the ranks of the Silverhand after their greed for the power has become to big and they started killing people and other beings to drain their power and convert it for their purposes. During and after the third war of Azeroth the public knowing about the Templars faded because they somehow disappeared and were rarely seen. There were only rumors about them left and the most common rumor was that they returned to their roots as paladins and use the Soulpower in addition to the power of the light. But they also had to survive and so they started to teach everyone who paid for it the use of Soulpower but never how to create it. These people and beings from every race and/or dimension became the Soulkeepers a mercanery like army that is lead by the Soultemplars. They fight to protect their knowledge, increase their might and prevent other forces from using the Soulpower. Now they return from their secret monastary because one who once belonged to them is unleashed and wants revenge for his banishment. The other races of Azeroth accepted their help for this fight even if no one knows their real plans..

Story


Prelude
A little prelude for the map.

What happend so far:
1 year ago: An unknown army lead by the Corrupted Council started an invasion in Azeroth. - They didn't conquer land but took thousands of prisoners.

10 months ago: Kil'jaeden discovered the real purpose behind the kidnapping of so many people and creatures. The Lichs of the Corrupted Council found the Prison of Upadoro, an ancient Demon Lord, in the Forgotten Plain of the four Edges. The Forgotten Plain is a small realm between Azeroth and the chaotic world of Upadoro. The goal of the Council is clear: They want to sacrifice all the prisoners and feed their souls to Upadoro so he can reopen the gate between the Forgotten Plain and his world.

6 months ago: The leaders of Azeroth met in a congress and decided that the most important issue of Azeroth will be the prevention of the ritual.

4 months ago: The Lichking found a clue of an Ancient Gate that leads from Azeroth to the Forgotten Plains in a book he had stolen from Dalaran.

3 months ago: The United Forces of Azeroth and even other races like the Demons agreed to plan and then start the offensive against the Corrupted Council.

2 weeks ago: The Council Forces at the Ancient Gate were slain. The Gate was still active but the connection between Azeroth and the Forgotten Plain was nearly gone.

Today: Azerothian reinforcments arrive at the Gate. Mages of every kind were able to empower the gate but it is still very weak and only allows a few troops to enter it one-by-one.

The nightmare difficulty is a little bit different to the other modes.
1. After picking your normal builder you will get a 2nd builder called Soultemplar Ambassador.

Upadoro TD v0.985 (Map)

Reviews
09:59, 26th Oct 2008 Rui: The map required a category. I added one myself. "Upadoro TD" is a tower defense game - you must build towers in order to stop waves of creeps. I have reviewed version 0.96 of this map, and you may find the comment here...

yeah well i think nearly every patch with new stuff has atleast one thing that is broken and screws the rest >.<

but anyway thanks for the hint. it shouldn't occure often but it will be fixed.


edit:
0.98 still needs some time (i think it will be released with Duke Nukem Forever :D ). so here is a little patch to fix the rare chance that level 47 could stuck

The following is kinda a spoiler:
well there won't be a new race for now but i can say as much as this: there will be a new builder with really awesome towers and a new very different difficulty setting - and that's why the next version is taking so long the towers have real great looking abilities and they take a lot of work (were done with like 1/11) so stay tuned

Hey Hey,
new version is finally out. Read the patchlog for all informations. It's again very short because i always forget to make a real documentation about the changes but i think it lists the most important things.

Please report any bugs. Mainly there could be a few non working autocasts but i think i tested all.

Found a bug that prevents the game from progressing. On the Phoenix Wave where they turn into eggs, a friend had Demonic Illidan's telepot a few of the eggs back to the start. We were not able to progress because they were invulnerable, and would not hatch to run through the map.

thanks for your comments. I gonna fix that with the final boss. But last time it didn't happen for me so does it always occure for you or did you something special?
hmm yeah and that with mugg I forgot to add a mana requirement for the spell. changed that too.
for the pulsing crystal just look in the earlier comments I think there where some hints.
and for cowking thing just search for some facts about the "blizzard chatgem" :D

Found a bug with lvl 6 if i saw right.

the mortars have the ability to fake their death, if they fake their death, u get gold and then u kill him u get again gold, means u get this waves 2 times the gold it should give.
another bug(not a really bug) is then u itemify towers with full mana and u rebuild them, that they have no mana more, and this is realy anoying by the paladin...

the thing with the mana is intended because otherwise you could just itemify the towers and reuse the abilities. and a trigger to restore the mana would be to complicated for the little effect.

but i can't confirm the thing with the mortars. tried it two times and got normal gold and soulpower. maybe it just looked like double gain when many die on the same spot.

that could be, dont saw if it was 2 times or not, so i said i wasnt sure=)
but the pulsing crystal tower is a little bit overpowered i think, with lvl 3 30%chance to stun 3 sec with very fast attack speed, if he focus the boss they cant move^^

These Things are Unbalanced:

Pulsing Crystal tower too much stun(+itemify bug again, if u itemify him he get his as speed spell back=()
shamanistic keepers spell is too strong for the souls
lvl 55 boss on nightmare is a joke, he get by me to the seocond corner, that cant be nightmarexD^^

I found Upadoro TD a very cool Td map. Its one of my 3 most favorite =)

But it still has few bugs in it:

1)the ogre warlord (or whatever is his name - the upgrade of 120 gold ogre from mercenaries) gets stuck (stops attacking) before autocasting his wave (manual casting is ok).

2)both upgrades of self made aircraft get stuck right after autocasting their attackspeed bonus spell.

3)there are wrong requirements written in the goblin/nightelf race - it always shows category two - war (even if it needs category one/three)

4)this is more imbalance than a bug - the nightmare difficulty is much easier than the very hard (but still fun to play)

thanks for your comment. hmm very strange i found the bug with the ogre/airplanes my self and fixed it and tried it a few times and it worked for me. but there seems to be another reason for triggering fail.

hmm the upgrade tool tip is generated by the game. I will look at it and why it shows the wrong upgrades.

and yeah like I said the next patch will focus on balance instead of adding again a lot of stuff.

I spent days and days and fianally i managed to complete this awesome TD on easy difficoulty (random race)

I think i had a night elf race anywho i saved the replay *proud*

Every race really is unique in it's own way and the simplest towers can have the most spectacular abilitys or just simple and very helpful abilitys which make the spectacular ones more special :)
It's one of the few games (atm the only map) that made me addicted to it until completing it...

The map also has a very nice visual look and all tooltips are complete with information a player needs and some colors to highlight the important stats. There were some minor spelling mistakes but hopefully those will be fixed soon in the next release.

As I said before the map is awesome and now i completed it (on easy at least) I can now rest in peace ;D
Good Job 5/5!

Thanks for your nice comment and short review.

Do you still know where you found some spelling mistakes? So I can fix them faster.


and to the next patch:
I found some bugs which made nightmare indeed easier. The voodoo damnation of the voodoo keeper for example had a little typing mistake which results in a higher bonus damage than intended.
and another thing: After trying a little bit and recalculating I think there is just too much gold and the gold gain from creeps raises too fast and too much. What do you think about that?

So.. 1st is a typo in map story. Theres kitnaped - not kidnaped. Nightmare mode is to easy. You should realy give waves more hp or more armor or better abilitys becos soultemplars are just destruction. The other thing is the last boss!? Are you kidding me? He has hero armor Not demonic. He has overaly only 200k hp like wtf? 50th lvl wave mobs have 66666. And overaly more then him. He is kinda slow. And ffs Who wouldnt kill him with a tower of 60% Bash. Its very easy. And the last boss is the same on all dificultys... what kinde of hard ship is that? I really really love your map heh. It got me addicted for a bit now. 1 thing i still dont get is what to do with the Necronomicon that is droped by last boss. Its a skill item or something? Becos i read on some posts that they playd 55th wave and i got only 50 can the game go on further? I want to know becos me and my friends playd the map on nightmer 10 times or so and everyone got the necronomicon but no one knows what to do with it. Please give alittle more help around it. Not just Now go kill upadoro... Ah 1 more thing i found Fish, Stone Golem tower and Holly Crusader tower: Are there any more secret towers/abilitys/places?
Hmm still w8ing for replay for a day now: You stoped developing of this map?

As many other people have already stated, I think that this is one of, if not the most, awesome TD EV4R! It's very simple to start with, many different races, special abilities, and just very nice gameplay. If I have to say anything bad about this, there are a few spelling mistakes but nothing major, (except for the Flying Machine thing (Piolet? :p)) and it would also be funnier if you could pick the Nightelf race in stead of just being lucky, (I have restarted countless times and haven't received it yet >.<) So, overall: 4,99/5 Awesome map!

And the last boss is the same on all dificultys... what kinde of hard ship is that? I really really love your map heh. It got me addicted for a bit now. 1 thing i still dont get is what to do with the Necronomicon that is droped by last boss. Its a skill item or something? Becos i read on some posts that they playd 55th wave and i got only 50 can the game go on further? I want to know becos me and my friends playd the map on nightmer 10 times or so and everyone got the necronomicon but no one knows what to do with it. Please give alittle more help around it. Not just Now go kill upadoro... Ah 1 more thing i found Fish, Stone Golem tower and Holly Crusader tower: Are there any more secret towers/abilitys/places?
Hmm still w8ing for replay for a day now: You stoped developing of this map?

Sorry for the late answer but actually there is not much time and I'm trying different things for a better balance when I find some time.
Actually I'm trying around with the balance of the gold gain because already after doing well in the first bonus wave there is too much money for the players so I think there is more balance needed for the bonus wave and a smoother gold gaining curve. And some Keepers will be weakend.
And yes the endbosses are still very weak because they are just stunned too death, so I thing there is some kind of re-design required.

Hey epix, are you still working on this map?

I am not a fan of Tower Defense maps, but I really like Upadoro TD and I found some bugs like towers getting stucked, wrong hotkeys and some abuses.

Great, so here is a list of bugs and other things I found:

  1. All "W" hotkeys for build tower don't work. They are, actually on "G";
  2. After Mugg gains the morph ability, if you itemify it, it will return with full mana and all the cooldowns reseted;
  3. If you itemify the Royal Spire, you can't pick it up;
  4. The Burning Archer tower gets stuck trying to autocast its shockwave ability. It tries to attack then it stops and uses the ability, but it don't fires, so it tries to attack again and so on;
  5. The Patchwerk tower, when you turn off the autocast of its second ability it starts to use, if you turn on, it stops;
  6. Change the position of the starting buildings that some races has. For player red, for example, they block a good spot for build towers. Put it a little more to southeast, just a little;
  7. The 3 last waves, starting from the Phoenixes, the game says you finish the wave before you really kill them all. Probably you are not counting the eggs, or when the other creeps go back in time;
  8. The final boss an the Nightmare difficulty are way too easy.

This is what I remeber now, there is probably nothing else.

Anyway, keep the good work Epix, it's a really good TD map.

Hey skar,

1. that's strange with the hotkeys for me it works but maybe it is difference with keyboard settings/language or maybe you made changes in your custom keys

2. I think I already fixed that for my newest test version. but I will check it again.

3. Yeah I don't know many people don't have problems and can pick it and for others it doesn't work. Maybe I must search a new modell or use a standard modell.

4. I know this bug and I don't know why it sometimes returns even if I try to fix it since many versions and sometimes it works normal. But I will also recheck that.

5. Ok fixed. I forgot to change the patchwerk triggers to the new cast system.

6. How do you mean that? The startposition in the maze is for every color the same and the gate is being removed and then you can choose where to place the starting tower.

7. Hmm okay never really noticed that checking that.

8. Yeah that was mentioned many times. I must see how I can make the bosses more difficult.

Thanks for your hints.

This is what I mean about the starting buildings:

Place them farther from the main path, so you can build towers there. And make the same for all players.

About the Burning Archer, I am not sure about that, but once I tryed to cast its ability manually and it says that I can't target enemies. Maybe is something with the spell targets.

You will add more secrets on the next version? It's fun to find them. :grin:

ah okay you mean the goldmine of the scourge. hmm okay I could place it somewhere else but for my own feeling I think there are enough other and better build spots anyway. I will try a little bit.

Yeah and secret's is always hard to balance when it is an extra tower for example but maybe I can add something funny.
