    As others have have posted maps themselves too so I attached mine to this one. But I will keep the code on the other post... There's bugs and misdetections I need to fix and more effect indicators, but otherwise it's starting to look like something ^^

    Screenshots

    Pic 1 - No charge whatsoever
    [​IMG]

    Pic 2 - Moderate charge

    Pic 3 - Maxed out charge

    Edit: Removed the map, I'm too paranoid to have it open for public lol..

    Nice, terrain changes! Be careful with them though, they might not work properly (if there are already 16 tiles on the map), maybe also have another way to accurately show the AoE?

    Thanks, I'll add booleans for whether it can modify tilesets.

    AoE indicator for frost nova? Maybe more effects to it...

    I promise you, you get my spell on 1st of August :) feel free to edit it as much as you like then (but give me credits in that case too)!

    Speaking of which, can we upload the spells onto hive after the contest is over?

    You can submit them now, and their review will wait until after the contest is over. It's been done before. Also, a boolean won't work, you'd have to try and always assume it failed.

    I'm afraid I'll have to stick to booleans (manually set to whether it uses tileset modifier) as otherwise mods would be like:

    And consider it as teamwork :(

    On the matter of submission of entries to the spell section, I'd say at the very least to wait for the thread to close, I'd recommend at earliest do it when the poll is up - when posted into the resource section people will often post code critique and reviews and suggest changes (Etc. etc.) unaware that they "shouldn't", the issue with that obviously being updating your code, since regardless of if the suggested changes you would realise and change on your own without their input, doing so would appear that you've taken their code changes and applied them (same as asking for help in the WEHZ for code help)

    The same occurs when the poll is up, which if anything, hurts your odds when judges come along and critique your work, since they will find more "ammo" to take marks away with, but the counterpoint is a greater level of public awareness for your entry, so that at least is a benefit and drawback

    There have been cases of people uploading their submission in spell section and getting user reviews regarding code before contest ending before, thus allowing for higher coding score.

    I see this as cheating personally.

    Agree'd. This is something going on over & over again with the Modelling Contests, and in my opinion, it is completely imbalanced and ultimately inequitable. I will continue to champion the inclusion of a "no uploading till after the contest" rule.

    Is asking for ideas counted as teamwork?

    Presumably this would be when people have done it before the polling stage - since the entry thread would be closed and they'd be unable to post any updates after the polling thread is made

    Added new phase indicator (as addition to other 3): The hero will start flashing in red once the rage is full.

    Beside that, bug fixing and adding effects.

    How are ye else doin' ?

    I got a tooltip, does that count?

    And that is pretty much it for now.
