Original Concept
[​IMG]

I once had the idea to make a civilization-type map on Warcraft III. I had it planned so that cities would be effectively demi-heroes, with population represented in level. Culture, production and health would be represented through the default Strength, Agility and Intelligence.

Everything, from units to buildings would be 'produced' in the city. The problem I found was that it wouldn't work well in an RTS like Warcraft III because you'd have to micromanage the production of cities constantly. So I settled for something much different so the gameplay would not be crippled.



Instead, workers build buildings rather than cities although they still have their function of harnessing resources. Technology is researched in buildable buildings like in Civilization Wars and the techs are listed in tiers for easier use and management.


Key Features
[​IMG]

- More realistic income system, and it has more strategic potential than pretty much all income systems.
- Ingame a trigger detects and boots Nerzhulen if he even tries to play the game.
- A choice of 53 civilizations across 12 players.
- Ability to research your way from the dawn of Civilization to the Future Era.
- Merchant system
- Vassal State system
- Civics System



Production
[​IMG]

Production still exists, albeit in a very different form. Military buildings (barracks, shipyards, airfields) take up 1 production (food). All players start off with one food (which is taken by the starting barracks) and can get more by researching certain techs such as pottery and building certain buildings such as forges. There is a limit to production, so this forces players to prioritize, as units aren't instantly created when ordered.




Income
[​IMG]

Income is more complex than normal. You get 100 gold income by default and on top of that you get 'city' income. This income is as follows:
Village - 15 gold
Large Village - 20 gold
Town - 25 gold
Large Town - 30 gold
City - 35 gold
Large City - 40 gold

All of these properties cost 80 gold to upgrade and all require a certain technology to upgrade (e.g. in order to upgrade a village into a large village you need Agriculture, and to upgrade a city into a large city you need electricity).

More significantly however you are penalized by how many 'properties'. The formula is (DefaultCityIncome - ( NumberOfProperties ^ 2 ). This means if you have 20 villages that would give you 300 gold 'default' income, you'd actually receive -100 gold. This encourages upgrading your current cities over expanding amount of cities, by simulating inefficient governance in large empires. This effect is halved when you've researched Economics and is quartered if you adopt Communism.

In addition to this, newly conquered 'properties' do not give you income for 5 minutes after being conquered. In fact they actually serve as a drain on your budget. The newly conquered 'properties' cost you 15 gold.





Geographics and Civs
[​IMG]

All players are allocated a rough geographical area for themselves, but otherwise they can choose their civilization which gets it's own starting point. Africa, Middle East, North, Central and South America are fairly self-explanatory. West Europe is the parts of Europe west of Germany. North Europe consists of the British Isles and Scandinavia. Central Europe consists of Germany, the Balkans, the Baltic and Poland. West Asia is geographically the Russian Empire area (excluding Siberia). South Asia is the Indian sub-continent, Eastern Asia is basically everything north of Indo-China. Oceania is Oceania IRL with the addition of Indonesia's area.

Also, everyone starts off allied (but without shared vision). You declare war when you see it suitable.





Resources
[​IMG]

Some resources are required for paticular units (for example swordsmen require iron), and some add to your income.

In order to gain access to resources you must build an improvement on them. The following improvements can be built on the following resources:
Mine - Copper, Iron.
Oil Well - Oil.
Camp - Ivory.
Pasture - Horses, Sheep.
Plantation - Sugar, Spices.

Improvements must be built within 1280 range of a building you own.

Civics
[​IMG]

There are 2 types of civics: Government and Economic.
For Government there is:
Monarchy (default). +1 gold gained per merchant.
Democracy. -50% corruption penalty.
Dictatorship. +33% corruption, +15% attack speed for units.

For Economy there is:
Free Market (default). +16.6% income & +16.6% corruption
Merchantilism. No merchant trade with other players.
Communism. -50% corruption.
Fascism. +20% unit movement speed.

"-check government civics" to see who has what government civic.
"-check economic civics" to see who has what economic civic.

"-government civics" to change governments civics.
"-economic civics" to change economic civics.
Note that only one person at a time can load the dialog to change civics.





Merchant System
[​IMG]

For every merchant that reaches your properties, you gain however much mana it has.
Merchants from Villages start with 1 mana.
Large Villages and Towns start with 2 mana.
Large Towns and Cities start with 3 mana.
Large Cities start with 4 mana.
+1 mana if the recipient has oil.
+1 mana if the recipient has ivory.
+1 mana if the recipient has spices.
+1 mana if the recipient has sugars.
+1 mana if the recipient is under the Monarchy civic.

Occupied properties do not send out merchants, however they can still recieve them.

Players cannot send/recieve merchants with enemies.
Players using the Merchantilism Civic cannot send/recieve merchants with other players.





Nationalities
[​IMG]

Not all races and cities have nationalities, but all of those in Europe, Asia and Oceania do. The majority of Civs get their own nationality:
English - England, English Canada.
French - France, French Canada.
Scandinavian - Viking Empire.
Swedish - Sweden.
Spanish - Spain.
Portugese - Portugal.
Italian - Rome.
Polish - Poland.
German - Germany.
Greek - Greece.
Byzantine - Byzantine.
Lithuanian - Lithuania.
Russian - Tsarist Russia, Soviet Union.
Tartar - Scythia.
Arab - Assyria, Arabia, Egypt.
Kazakh - Khazakh Khanate.
Muslim Indian - Mughal Empire, Indus Valley Civilization.
Hindi Indian - Maratha Empire.
Bengali - Vangal Kingdom.
Chinese - China.
Mongol - Mongolia.
Malay - Srivijaya.
Javanese - Java.
Aborigine - Aboriginal Tribes.

Nationalities used to tie in with stability, but now I've removed stability I have no idea what do to with them. If anyone can come up with a decent idea for them, that would be great.

    @Solecompanysole Good to hear, I'll look out for it.

    @Vengeancekael & Tau Empire Thanks for the tip-offs about the presentation. I've made it more easy on the eyes, so hopefully that is an improvement for you both. :3

    @Hevenblood Great to know someone that I don't already know is enjoying the map, which is always a good motivator.

    You need to fix the voices. Almost all of the units have the archer voice. The machine gunner it cant deploy to be able to shoot. The oil doesn't work, so you cant use the modern boats.

    4/5 for know

    This map is awesome :O
    Edit: Except some mistakes:
    1. you can't use oil
    2. when you research satelite the map gones for a moment every 20 seconds (you can only see terrain, no units)
    3. gunship doesn't fly
    4. many buildings' shadows are 4 times bigger than building.
    5. boats can't attack
    If i will find more mistakes i'll edit this post again
    Edit 2:
    When you upgrade fort it has less damage
    I think ships are moving too fast

    Yep, fixed for next version.

    Ok, fixed for next version also.

    Working as intended. Gunships don't fly in Civ4 and I think it'd be silly to see gunships flying over oceans.


    Not a huge amount I can do about that, other than remove their shadows entirely. Would you consider that better?

    Yeah, just a slight mistake I made where their attack stats aren't visible in Wc3 UI. Shall be fine for the next version though.

    Bit vague there. Would love to know what part of them is actually bothering you.
    Really? o_O
    I thought they went quite well together.

    Very valid point there, I'll make some adjustments in that area.

    Ok, fixed for the next version.




    Thanks guys.

    This map is good, but there was some unbalances in it and i was abit confused.

    When i began the game i tried as Japan, they could capture 1 city and there was no resources nearby.
    After that i tried to start as England they started with Horses, sheeps and iron and 2 capturable citys.

    It would also be nice to be able to see the commands in quest, i searched for the ally/unally commands and couldn't find it, but luckily i just tried to write -unally *color* and it worked :)

    So, this is a Warcraft 3 conversion of Civilization 4?
    Awesome.
    Does this mean there's the squares movement systems and whatnot?
    *DL's*

    EDIT: Wow. That wasn't as great as I hoped, mainly cause it wouldn't show in my maps list.

    Good god no. A turn-based system would be horrible for Warcraft III Bnet, and it is bad enough for Civ4 online multiplayer.

    There are some mistakes in middle east nations. Assyria didn't exist in classical ages and you made their favourite era classical? So as Arabia which was united in the first years of middle ages. And you didn't make Persia as a civilization. Which was once one of the most powerful nations of it's time. (I have a good of knowledge about history of middle east)

    inorite, but helicopters don't fly over oceans in Civ4 for obvious reasons. o_O


    When I started out seriously considering this concept I did think about trying out the Nuclear Sunrise terrain for it. But then I thought it over and felt that the Nuclear Sunrise terrain outline is just so inaccurate.

    I'm quite pleased the current terrain outline I have. It could be better but I'm not sure if I've seen a better world terrain outline for a map on Warcraft III.

    Gunships don't fly again in this version lol, just looks wierd when it doesn't, but you could do a aircraft carrier like say Helicopter is outside of range 2000 of aircraft carrier, move helicopter to aircraft carrier or something around those lines.
