World of Magic RPG 1.24

Submitted by skamigo
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
After months of work I finally finished the beta version of World of Magic Single Player RPG.

Story:
You are a young mage who wants to prove himself to the world and have to do various of quests in the world to advance to a higher stage.

Systems:
-Wands/staffs/rods:
You will always have one of these in your inventory, these will give you bonus damage to the magic you cast, but can also give various of special effects.

-Magic:
the usage of magic is your main and practically only way of damaging the enemy units. Magic is not an ability your hero has, but comes forth in items, with maximum 100 charges, everytime you use your staff/wand/rod it will use the magic in slot 2 of your hero's inventory. There is destructive, healing and effect magic, destructive magic is fire, blizzard, thunder, or later also fira, firaga, holy, quake, flare, etc. Healing magic is cure, cura, curaga and regen. Effect magic is blind, slow, protect, shell, stop and infection.
NEW FEATURE: Pressing the Up or Down arrow moves the items in your inventory Up or Down. This improves gameplay if you play with autocast, and even without.

-Drawing:
Drawing is what u need to do to obtain magic. This is a hero ability you use on enemy units. Each unit has a different magic you can draw from it, some units have the same magic, bosses mostly have better magic to draw from. You can draw 9 magic maximum each time you draw. Agility has an effect on the amount you draw.

-Healing/reviving:
You can carry an unlimited amount of potions, and these are shown on your leaderboard. Everytime you pick up a potion the number on your leaderboard will increase, and when you use a potion with the hero ability 'use potion', the number will decrease. There are also phoenix downs, aslong as you have more then 0, when you die you will be revived at the starting town. You can buy these in any town.

-Inventory:
The hero ability 'go to inventory' transports you to a closed area where all the items in the map you have collected will be available, like staffs, armor, potions u haven't picked up and magic.

-Armor:
You can imbue armor with magic you found. You need a 100 of the magic u want to imbue to do this. U can keep imbueing the same armor, but the effects will not stack, it will only have the effect of the last magic u imbued it with. Stronger magic=stronger armor.

-Summoning:
At a certain time in the game you will find summons (Ifrit, Shiva and Ramuh). When you cast the magic they are affiliated with there's a chance you summon them(shown on leaderboard). Later on you can find more summons, especially with the summoner class(see net).

-Classes:
At a certain time in the game you will be able to choose your class, these will have there own specialties and abilities. There are 4 classes you can choose from:
*Necromancer: this class is all about the raise dead spell. This is the only hero that can get the summon Ra'Qul, which is a skeleton summon.
*Priest: gives bonusses to healing spells and later on massive bonus to the holy spell. Priest also has an income that can be increased by doing quests.
*Summoner: has increased chance of summoning, can also find more summons and has some active summoning spells.
*Elementalist: this hero is all about destructive spells, for pure damage take this guy.

Classes also give bonusses when you do quests in the village they're from (you can take the portal in each town to transport to your village.

    I downloaded and played the map, have been for 6 hours or so.
    {B} - Bug
    {S} - Suggestion
    Mostly suggestions are below seeing as a lot of people have posted most of the bugs already (that and I didn't run into that much myself). Suggestions are just as helpful anyways. :D

    Couple things:
    • {B} Slug Summon - The quest giver will repeatedly give you the quest into your quest log. Finishing the quest only completes 1 instance in your quest log.
    • {B/S} Equip Differences - Half-bug, Half-suggestion. When you equip a new wand/rod/staff or what have you, it will swap with the one in your inventory and the one you pick up. But the same does not happen with your robe. With your robe it tells you that you already have one equipped and you have to take it off first. Fix this so that they both auto-swap like the wand/rod/staff does.
    • {S} Spell Usage - I like how the spell usage works in your map, very neat. Although I barely ever used the debuff/buff abilities. Found it easier to just keep nuking enemies. I also found it annoying to have to keep switching the spells I wanted to use between 1 inventory slot. (In case I wanted to do such a thing: Regen (when no longer on), Cure/Cura, Nuke, repeat). A way to make it easier to use spells is instead have the wand only grant bonuses like a robe. Have all the spells be used on their own (so you don't have to be bothered to switch spell locations - EXCEPT for auto-cast which would be in 1st item slot) and keep them all on the same cooldown. This way the spell usage is generally the same, except being a little bit easier to use. This also means that wands/rods/staves will now be able to be sold and dropped like robes. Because it isn't 100% required for spell casting now. (Or you could have the wands/rods/staves be in a specific item type, and have a trigger to sense if that item type is present on your hero and prevent you from using spells if it isn't - this way wands/rods/staves are still required to cast spells, and you can still make it easier to manage in the form I suggested. Although if you do this you have to make the very first wand/rod/staff you get unable to be sold).
    • {S} Respawning - If I'm correct your respawn system works like this: When a monster dies wait a set time. Then respawn where it died? Why not just have it respawn in a random location in the "area" it belongs in? Made up of 1 or more regions. If the monster also exists in another "area" make an exact duplicate version of that monster for the other "area" and it's region(s).
    • {S} Difficulty - I found leveling to go waaaay to fast. Shiva and Ifrit were the only bosses I had trouble with. Ramuh I managed to stay even with him and Cures. And leeched a bunch of Thundagas off him to make leveling even easier (and I didn't even use them! I only gathered them thinking that it would get hard enough that I would need them). Maybe make all spells a small amount weaker (not the heals though, they were perfect in my opinion) and make the exp requirements a little higher. Small tweaks here and there and eventually it'll be very balanced. Don't worry! :D
    • {S} Storage/Inventory - Your system was very good, but if at all (I don't know if you do) want to make it multiplayer you should do "hero inventory bags." Like they appear as icons like your hero on the side of the screen. But they use invisible/extremely small models, and the unit moves to your main hero every split second. This plus other obvious things integrated with your current system could be used to hold items instead of what you currently use. This will also solve a couple things besides making it multiplayer possible: People won't be able to "jump battle" and pick better spells and get a huge advantage because they now know what to do. Instead it will force them to actually flee instead of just hitting the inventory button over and over between each mistake quickly formulating a perfect battle. This will increase game-play time and difficulty. As well it creates more limited inventory space and people won't be able to just create a whole crapload of spell stacks before hand, and they have to plan better. (Maybe put a time limit that items can be on the ground before the map deletes them?).


    Oh and one last thing. How the fudge do you get Odin summon? (I'm playing a summoner and I don't understand what you're suppose to do in the graveyard). Keep up the good work! :D

    Thx for the feedback

    The Slug is the only summon I haven't tested yet, so thx for reporting that bug

    Robes are droppable, unlike staff, that's why it's different, I think it's ok tho, mostly u won't come across that many robes anyway.

    For the spells, normally you're supposed to turn on autocast, it really improves the gameplay, and makes it less boring, so you just have to change the inventory slot for the item u want to cast ^^

    Yea the respawning system isn't too great, but if they enter a village, or city they get transported to a random region, with some of the creeps coming across different regions it's kinda annoying to specify where they have to respawn

    Yea difficulty is annoying, some people find it too hard, while others find it way too easy, I can keep changing it but people will always complain by being it either too easy or hard, some people understand the concept of the game faster then others

    Yea I'm not gonna make it multiplayer, someone is trying it, but it's kinda very hard, it's never supposed to be made for more players, so the triggers arn't written like that.

    Also, u can talk to someone in graveyard when you get sage, who tells u he saw odin, then you can kill him ^^

    It was pretty good. The spell system was fun. It got boring later though.
    There were some typos like ''u''.
    I'll rate it 3/5.

    Fix also:
    1) If you force the illussion mage to spam his mirror image spell and you corner him (he tends to go down to the door), there is a possibility that an image of him or the actual one spawns outside the fight area (happend to me with the REAL one and i was forced to load cause i couldnt reach him since he got outside the arena). This is a "bug" also happening with the standard blademaster from wc3 (you can trap an image or yourself to an impassable terrain).

    2) You can find the Sage staff in the light temple and complete the quest, although you never spawned him (and then you can fight him although you are not a sage yet).

    3) Same with the naga flutes although I couldnt find the 3rd one (used iseedeadpeople to carefully scan the area but it was nowhere) although i never completed the first quest (finding the relics). Also the relic count seemed to be broken after picking a flute. Count went to 0, didnt get the reward and then after picking some more relics (if im not mistaken there are more relics than the quest actually needs) the count restarted: you need 1 more -> you need 2 more -> you need 3 more -> etc. Thus, i wasnt able to complete the summoners quest story, but I could summon the naga cause of the 4% summoner gets, although i've never managed to summon her and defeat her.

    thanks for your bugreport, I'll fix them, 2 and 3 are probably caused due the fact that you normally do the first 3 quests before you are sage, I'll look into it, the illusion mage shudn't be too hard to fix (I'll just use a 'unit enters region trigger)

    Bugs and stuff

    Ive just created this account to say how awesome this map is.
    Anyways I found several glitches/bugs and I wanted to share them w/ you so you can fix them next time.

    Shortcuts:

    So far I played only the summoner and I can give you information only for him.

    The shortcut for Bahamut (R) doesnt work. Also when I summon him it seems he does nothing, it looks like his is trying to attack but he never does or he attacks but deals 0 dmg, dunno you have to check this for yourself to understand it fully.

    The shortcut for (C)orrupt Creature - Abomination doesnt work too.


    Quests:

    Siren's whereabouts quest (Summonner village) - collect 10 relics and 3 siren artefacts.

    Ive collected them all and when I returned to the the chief of the village he still had the question mark (?) above his head. And belive me Im 100% sure I got them all because I checked the area few times even w/ my wolfs. Something strange (maybe) - when I needed 2-3 relics more to complete the quest and a minus "-" occured infront of the "how many items left to collect" message, dunno if this really is the problem, but I had them all and the quest bugged and I couldnt complete it.

    Protect the skeletons quest (Necro village) - Kill 10 Priests
    Ive killed 101 of them. Nothing happened. The quest still showed I have to kill 10.



    The most Important ones!


    Add some trees in the red circle

    http://i30.tinypic.com/343je47.jpg

    obviously you can freely pass and walk around :D
    and see this -> http://i25.tinypic.com/vrfptt.jpg


    and now !!!!


    http://i26.tinypic.com/2cmmzr9.jpg

    imo you have to fill the hole behind the portal so nothing could pass.
    When I passed I found out two characters there.
    A Lich King and the daughter of the King.When I clicked on the daughter she gave me the last quest!!? but I wasnt even close to the last boss, I had just killed the first mage - Time wizzard was his name if Im correct.

    FIX firaga ASAP!!!!!:S
    I don't know if its leak or what but it lags heavily the game with elementalist that cast it twice.
    I found some more minor bugss but cant recall them except the one that you can get two times the "Kill 10 priests".

    Edit:Is in the plan for the map to get black all of the sudden after certain time or after certain quest?
    The minimap is okay just the map is black color like a dark room.you can only see the things that glow.

    Firaga just creates a lot of dummy units, but I advice u to use blizzage more against a lot of enemies.
    I'll look into that quest

    about the black, it isn't supposed to happen, someone told me he had it when he entered the dark fortress, I don't really know what causes this, but i'll try to check it out.

    Thx for the report

    Summoner gets the bonus for summons even if they are not available(they are not summoned just it is shown in the inventory multiboard) not something major but it can be fixed to improve quality.
    Also on summoner i think sometimes he doesn't autocast spells when he is with wolves[mb the staff that i carry interacts with spells while it also casts spells on self(Rod of Protection)].
    On thunder based spells(i think was the medium lvl thunder spell cant remember its name)i have also seen the marker that stays after the spell and i saw it to the side of the map in the temple area(under cleric's village).
    On summoner again on wolves the timed life bar says quillbeast.Is this what u wanted it to say?
    I get this thing with black screen on dark fortress again but this time its when i walk a bit(i meen one step)in the area.Also it happens when my wolves pass this "point" but when i teleport out of black fortress its all ok. Maybe a trigger ,like the one in the cemetery that u when u go in the screen gets kinda dark and "scary", there enables it?
    I saw some other minor thiongs like these but as always i can'y recall them :/
    I gotta go now or i would check for any grammar or cyntax mistakes so sry about them if they exist and also sry for not editing but i fear that u wouldnt see my edit :p
    Very nice map!at least 4/5 at best 4,9/8(fix the minor bugs and 5 is yours;D)

    yea it's normal for the summoner to show the chances to summon of even the ones you don't have, but that doesn't mean they're summonable yet, aslong as you don't have captured the summon you can't summon it. Yea that bug with thundara is not cos of the spell thundara, but cause you're at the boundaries of the map, I thought I fixed this, but seems not, I'll check it out again.
    I still have no idea how the dark fortress bug works, it seems it sometimes happens, sometimes not, but I don't know what could cause this, I'll be sure to check it out, could you perhaps take a screenshot of it? Or maybe a replay.

    I've tested my map again, and the darkness in the dark fortress is just a fog effect, I could still clearly see the map, it's just a little darker, the only bug is that it only resets when u go to the starting town...I'll fix that today, allong with most bugs you guys told me (the quest related ones), also the units at the side of the map will be fixed

    Nice minimap screen, the thing with the fog seems to be my mistake ... sry
