    I agree with those other guys, I think the deadline should be extended. I'm having much trouble trying to complete the maps as it is, and will probably need extension if the deadline isn't change.

    Extend the deadline slightly and all shall be happy, likely the maps I'm working on will be done in time but not porperly tested if the deadline isn't extended.

    I would like to wish both the judges of this contest and Bob27 the best of luck in this contest. (as well as the contestants off course =)..)

    It's good to see new contests are popping up, I myself am setting one up as well over at http://maps.worldofwar.net, and I can understand the pressure that you must be under.

    anyhow, I won't enter this contest, but if you ever make another one, I might , who knows.

    Best of luck with judging, and may the best participant win.

    If they cant finish it its their problem not yours. They can apply for a short extension, but setting the deadline back totally would suck cas then asasin would spam mail ur ass :D

    look i've already said I can give extendtions so I will. I will not tell you the exact new deadline date so me and the Judges can debate the new deadline date, rather then having to change it more then once. You will find out on the 25th, however you can expect to have at least 2 weeks. Also with the maps being released when u send me your map I will then contact u again giving you the thumbs up for releasing the map. However no map will be released before the 20th of feb. I have already giving VG the thumbs up to release his maps on the 20th so u can see u what u people in the RPG and Other catergory are up against.

    I entered the Altered Melee - category with a Starcraft Map

    However Im going to need to use a few triggers here and there
    - to make some of the unit abilities work
    - add a few sounds
    - make the vespine gas (2nd mineral source) work.
    a few other things

    These wont alter the map, it will still remain completely melee.

    IS that ok?

    look a melee map is a map with no triggers at all (spells will be accepted though). Some triggers will be accepted such as sound and melee. But if it has a trigger that is not accepted the map will just be moved to the appropriate catergory, most likely other. Also this has been mentioned at least 3 times now.

    Wooo an extension.

    I've got my week off now, so I will be able to work on the map more.

    Just trying to get the transparency working when you build a unit. Even though i've got nothing else working :D.

    What it is like so far.

    Thanks for the offer, but no.

    Just got alot of grinding to do on the map, there are 26 starting units, and I want them all to be able to bind with each other, making 350 more units, all of which can merge with heroes to gain spells, life, mana ect.

    So thats :

    376 Hero Skills
    376 Units - 1/4 will have abilities
    90 Unit Abilities

    and that is just 10% of the 'fusions', 50% of the 376 units will be able bind together to form greater units, and then again for even greater units.

    more long than hard, reminds me of statistics work. still the offers there u know. good luck with it too is sounds like a great idea. one thing tho, are you having like 400 custom units? because an idea i had a while back was to make it so u could use triggers to plug on different body parts to different units making an huge amount of combinations without taking up much space.

    Well, say you have a Stag and a Night Elf, fuse them together, and you get a Dryad.

    The stag doesn't have an attack, but has a special ability instead, and the night elf just a warrior (dunno yet, still in rough design mode). While the Dryad is a mixture of the two.

    I need to do the whole thing with 400 custom units because there will be a unit type check for the Hero Fusions, and the unit type stats, such as Custom Value, Point Value, Food Cost ect. determine their stats. Though stats arn't used yet because my friend is too busy to start work on the 'attack system'.

    but what if you want to mix a stag with a bear or a swords man? is there like a limit between what units can be fused? like only similar units or something?

    Well, all the starting units can fuse together.

    It then becomes more limited over how many times you fuse the unit.
