Zombie Apocalypse - Versus

Submitted by Karzama
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
This is my newest map which I have created, my favourite too.

Its a 2 player map were one of the players would play defence and the other player would play offence. EDIT - Now playable as any team 1 player.

The aims of the game:
Defensive Player - You must defend your castle for as long as possible, the winning condition is to have the castle alive after an amount of rounds (chosen by you) of the horde. You will get a minor about of money at the start of every round, income we could say. This is done by the opposing player, you get a small proportion of their income every round. You can buy 1 of each hero from the castle.

Offensive Player - You play the horde, you do not control the horde personally, but will provide upgrades in spawn count, abilities and general upgrades to the horde. Your aim is to destroy the Castle BEFORE all rounds are over. You also get income as told earlier, your income is based on what upgrades you do, whether they are of spawn count or of general upgrades.

I do appreciate any comments or constructive criticism, and might make different playable game modes in further updates. Good Luck and Have Fun!

    Hmmm, I do believe this map violates some rules. :eek:

    Firstly, "Created by Unknown ; Uploaded by: Karzama"
    And secondly, "All imported models and pictures were imported here for the HW". YOu must properly credit all authors of the files you used. :p

    Hitler's Comments
    [​IMG]


    1-The terrain is so flat and there's plenty of unused space. ( You can ignore this point. )
    2-For some reason I don't get income so I was not capable of upgrading my units.
    3-For some reason the humans have tanks, marines, robots..I don't know if this was meant to be a part of the map but it seems greatly unreal for me.
    ( You can ignore this point. )
    4-There are minor spelling mistakes.

    Allow me to rate this map 3/5 it has a good gameplay idea but could be improved ( At least in my opinion ) By adding more custom imports, filling up terrain spaces and the terrain itself, tell me if you require help with triggers, terrain, icons..anything else except models.

    The description still lacks, doesn't make me want to read it since it looks really plain; use hidden tags, tables, add screenshots, use colours ( Don't over do it ).

    Do you ever actually test maps? :p

    I would have agreed with DeadBoss to a certain extent, but according to the post he was responding to:
    It was actually pointing towards another problem, not the description, correct?

    The tanks, marines etc are only in the map as I couldn't find anything else which actually looked powerful. So I went for a mech building. I don't know why the income didn't work as its always worked when I've tried it.

    Errors:
    Nr1: Apocalypse is spelled like that!
    Nr2: LEAKS! :O
    Dunno if it matters in a map this size, but anyways:
    • Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units in (Playable map area) owned by Player 4 (Purple)) and do (Unit - Order (Picked unit) to Attack-Move To (Center of Castle Area <gen>))

    This trigger leaks, below you'll see how to fix it!
    Fix:
    • Set Temp_Group = (Units in (Playable map area) owned by Player 4 (Purple))
    • Unit Group - Pick every unit in Temp_Group and do (Unit - Order (Picked unit) to Attack-Move To (Center of Castle Area <gen>))
    • Custom script: call DestroyGroup (udg_Temp_Group)


    That's one example.
    Follow this guide to learn how to remove leaks!

    and well..
    It might work anyways, but there's some risks taken when not removing leaks,
    if i'm not wrong, if I am, please correct me!

    the human gets income based off of the zombies income as far as i can tell...

    EDIT: Ok after a test it seemed the human got 1 income per 50 of the zombies. Also apocalypse is spelled incorrectly. the income of getting more spawns needs to be greatly increased... spending 8k gold for 200(or 400 i cant remember) income on the behemoth and getting like +1 2 or 3 for the initial zombies. I only got spawn upgrades at first and it took like 10 rounds to get something that gave decent income.

    The reason you get so little income from spawn counts are that if you got like 2k for a 4k upgrade you would easily be able to swarm the human with numbers. so i thought it would be easier for the human player (not that its in any way easy) to give minuscule income for spawn counts.
