  • Premise
    • Do you like Diablo?

    If you answered "yes" to any of the above, this game is for you!

    In 30XX, a crack commando unit was betrayed by a deranged leader out for power. They found the truth and got their revenge, only to be branded as renegades. Today, still wanted by the Imperium, they survive as soldiers of fortune. Mongoose City is beset by the undead, demons, Chaos-tainted soldiers, and all manner of mutants. Their people need help, and the Imperium isn't coming. It's up to you to get in there, wipe out the freaks, save the civilians, and do it in style.


    Features
    • Physics system: Aim, dodge and reflect grenades, rockets, bouncing plasma bolts, and more!
    • Revive system: Get knocked out? Your teammates and your own stubborn spirit can bring you back.

    • NPC AI and Command System: NPCs act intelligently so you can focus on your hero.
    • Quests: Assist various civilians and military NPCs for rewards, bring them with you to bolster your strength, or use them as bait: it's up to you!

    1.42e Changelog

    Heroes
    Double Time now clears negative buffs every second while active.


    Game

    Added a message for when the game starts in Mercenaries mode to explain how it works.


    NPCs

    SLAP Member and Sniper Team Reflex per level increased to 20 from 10.


    Items

    Shock Rounds slow increased from 25% to 33%. Fixed tooltip to reflect that the AoE is 200, not 150.

    Rocket Launcher energy cost reduced to 200 from 300.

    Solid Construction (damage block for buildings) increased from 20 to 50.


    Bug Fixes
    Fixed a bug that would lock the camera on the Helicopter for players that skipped the intro, but not for players that watched it to completion.

    Fixed a typo on Personal Shield on Projectile's color text formatting


    Enemies
    Enemy damage block now falls under one ability, which increases with level as difficulty goes up. Different enemies have different starting levels for their level of damage block. The main intent here is to not have hero abilities be obsolete vs. certain enemy types late in the game.

    Make damage block min dmg. 10 for lvs. 1, 2, and 3. Min dmg 5 for all other levels.

    Gave Rabisu Demonic Summon.

    Daemons now have damage block instead of evasion. You'll have to dodge their silence attempts and nail them with an ability to take them down. Or use special Rounds (Explosive Rounds, Tesla Cannon, ELF Mod, Flare Rounds, etc.). Or shred their armor (base 0). Or get massive damage boosts. Or engage with a melee hero (ignores damage block). Or engage with mechanical units (tanks, Heavy Weapons in mechanical mode), etc.

    Erinyes now has damage block instead of evasion as well.

    Implemented AI for units with Demonic Summon and short range Demonic Summon. Every 8 seconds, units with short range Demonic Summon will attempt to summon a random enemy hero within 3000 range.



    1.42d Changelog

    Items
    Stat upgrade items no longer spawn randomly across the map. Instead, each Miniboss drops one on death, and each Boss drops 5 on death.

    Common and uncommon items no longer randomly spawn across the map.

    Tweaked the static item spawns slightly.


    Enemies
    Increased Aosoth armor from 3 to 18.
    Decreased hero count threshold for Aosoth's ultimate (waves of explosions) by 1.

    Updated Vermin Lord and Spider Lord's point values to be 10,000 from 2,000.

    Forest Avenger (secret megaboss) now drops 20 Resilience upgrades on death.


    Bug Fixes
    Fixed a bug that caused Heavy Weapons' Judgment to not work at all.



    1.42c Changelog

    Game
    Respawn time for Stubborn Spirits is now 6 seconds + 3 seconds per level past 6.

    Floating text sizes for points from kills now scale at half the previous rate.


    NPCs
    Reduced the number of allied soldier NPCs at the start of the game from 20 to 12.

    For every 10 Civilians you rescue, the bonus base is now 250,000 from 50,000.

    Periodic Civilian spawns in the city now changed to occur at the start of each wave, and with 13 Civilians instead of 10.

    There are no longer 20 Civilians that spawn in the city at the start of the game. You'll have to rescue the initial set and then rescue Civilians that spawn from rescuing those.

    There's now a ping and notification when Civilians spawn in the city area when waves end or when you rescue 10 Civilians.

    The first time you rescue 10 Civilians, if Hints are on, the camera will pan to the location of the Civilians that spawned from the rescue.


    Enemies
    Minibosses now spawn every 50k points from every 30k.

    Bosses now spawn every 250k points from every 125k.

    Bosses now give a base 10,000 points from 2,000.

    Tweaked thresholds for spawning minibosses and bosses such that they'll spawn more regularly, except when megabosses are out.


    Bug Fixes
    Fixed a bug preventing Imperial NCOs from automatically learning their Power Fist ability.



    1.42a Changelog

    Game
    The first spawn phase is now fast instead of slow for 60 seconds.


    Bug Fixes

    Fixed a bug that caused Megabosses to only drop 1 upgrade on death instead of the intended 10-60 upgrades.

    Fixed a bug that prevented Aosoth from spawning.



    1.42 Changelog

    Game
    During hero picking, the camera will stay focused on the helicopter and you'll auto-select the helicopter until you pick a hero.

    Friendly events occur about half as often now.

    Merchants now only appear in the pre-deployment room if you load a code with rank 17 or higher (previously any code would do it).

    Tweaked some terrain in the lower center of the base.


    Enemies
    Rainshield Sapper range reduced from 1000 to 950.

    Rainshield Sniper range reduced from 1500 to 1200.

    Rainshield Sniper (hard) range reduced from 2700 to 1800.

    At 1,500,000 points, one Daemon will spawn per player. This is mainly to prepare the players for Erinyes' clouds.


    Bug Fixes
    Enemies now properly increase their acquisition range over time. This should improve the consistency of pacing in the game quite a bit.

    Erinyes' new AI now fires silencing clouds properly.

    Fixed a bug that would prevent NPC soldiers from spawning if you picked your hero and deployed ASAP.

    Fixed a graphical bug for the Fabricator.

    Tweaked a few item tooltips to prevent truncation.



    1.41f Changelog

    Buildings
    If you right-click a building while in its corresponding Circle of Power, you'll automatically transfer energy to it.


    NPCs
    Capped the number of NPC infantry that spawn at the end of each wave, but later in the game they'll spawn at a higher level. This is intended to prevent performance issues.


    Enemies
    Daemon's Cloud spell now has a 2-second delay, and a graphic indicating where it will land so you can dodge it.

    Daemon's Cloud spell now has a 2-second delay, and a graphic indicating where it will land. However, it also now fires upon up to 5 enemies within 351-1200 range at a time.

    Reduced Rainshield Sapper HP to 250 from 350.

    Improvements/bug fixes to Defiler AI.

    Raised base enemy food cap by 2.


    Endings
    Tweaked the length of endings and the score/rank breakdown.


    Bug Fixes
    Fixed a bug that caused the "Time Extensions" hint to play during Mercenaries mode.

    Fixed a bug preventing the "Fuel Empty" message from appearing while trying to move a vehicle that's out of Energy.

    More attempts at fixing bugs with rezzing in multiplayer following desyncs.



    1.41d Changelog

    Enemies
    Significantly reduced the distance-based damage bonus for enemy charged shots. For players, landing a long range shot is hard, but for the computer, not so much, especially for shots that come from off-screen.

    Tweaked enemy caps and spawn rates some more. This should help with pacing/difficulty and performance issues later in the game. More tweaks to come, most likely.

    Gave Dreadlords a short-range (1200) version of Gaap Thamuz's Demonic Summon, though they may not use it yet.


    Megabosses no longer grant shared vision in Nightmare Mode.


    NPCs
    Reduced the number of NPCs (mainly tanks and other mech units) that spawn per wave ending and per event.


    Bug Fixes
    Fixed a bug with the Spawning Pit Move Speed aura that allowed it to affect enemy projectiles. Resulted in weird projectile speed curves.

    Fixed a bug that caused all the Top Score units to become owned by player 12.



    1.41c Changelog

    Enemies
    Imposed a max food count for enemies even when Moonstones are active.

    Switched slow spawn phase count back to 5 from 4 second intervals.

    Switched normal spawn phase back to 3 from 2 second intervals.


    Game
    When a player dies, their individual streak is reset (so they can't keep a GODLIKE going after death).


    Heroes
    Demolitions: Burst Rockets stun duration increased from 2/4 to 3/6.


    Bug Fixes
    Fixed a bug (hopefully) with Nightsong Summon and other global rezzes that would sometimes put a player in the Top Scores area, and if it *still* happens, there's a hint on the -unstuck command so you can get back into the game.



    1.41b Changelog

    Bug Fixes
    The new spirit revive sometimes resulted in rezzed heroes landing in the repick spot. That should be fixed now.

    Fixed merchants changing their wares every 15 seconds.


    Vehicles
    You'll get a floating text message when vehicle fuel is low, and when the vehicle is empty.


    1.41a Changelog

    Heroes
    Sniper is now a rank-required class.

    Added the rank name for the rank requirements for innates and heroes (Sergeant, Corporal, etc.).


    Game
    Reduced the floating text size on wave complete from 20 to 14.

    Merchant's wares now update upon each wave completion instead of every 5 minutes.


    Enemies
    Megabosses now drop more upgrades on death, and the drop placement has been tweaked.

    Enemy acquisition range now only changes when a hero attacks the enemy.


    Bug Fixes
    Fixed a bug with the new Spirit Revive and Salvation that caused hero death tracking to mess up and trigger early Total Party Kills.



    1.41 Changelog

    Heroes
    Desyncs are more rampant due to bugs in the recent WC3 patches, plus desyncs from old widgetized maps. These desyncs result in single-target rezzes breaking. As a workaround, Stubborn Spirit rezzes (from full energy) now rez the whole team.

    Repick timer reduced to 60 seconds from 90 seconds.

    Heroes now start with just 1 skill point from 5 skill points.

    The team no longer levels up to lv10 upon rescuing their first 10 Civilians. Instead, if you load a code, you start at lv10 with 10 skill points.

    Hero skills now have a level skip requirement:
    Lv1 = 1
    Lv2 = 4
    Lv3 = 7
    Lv4 = 10
    Lv5 = 13
    Ultimate Lv2 = 12

    There's an Engineer ability that causes desyncs. As a temporary workaround, that class now requires nearly max rank to play. If anyone wants to help test which Engineer ability is causing the desyncs, I'll be really grateful (and fix the issue within a few days most likely).

    Other classes now have a rank requirement: Drop Trooper, Heavy Weapons, Sciops, Squad Leader, Vanguard. You won't need more than 3,000,000 points to unlock them all.


    Buildings
    Added a new sentry model: Radar Tower by Mr. Bob.


    Events
    Removed Half Time in Mercenaries Mode.


    Items
    Removed the Det Pack from the starting area. If you want one, use the Fabricator, or scavenge a few hidden ones in the City.


    Enemies
    Some minor AI optimizations.

    Decreased volume on all miniboss spawn sounds to 90.
    Decreased volume on all boss spawn sounds to 110.



    1.40e Changelog

    General
    Re-branded the game. The new title is more clear about what the game is about, and it's more effective in getting random battle.net players to join, based on observations from running a hosting bot.


    Vehicles

    Fixed Purger Tank's AoE damage on normal attacks not working.
    Added Flame Spray ability. It functions like a lv. 5 Squad Leader flamethrower.


    Enemies

    All enemy summons (like, when they try to summon YOU) now have a 3 second channel time before the summon occurs. If you're more than 1800 range away when the channeling finishes, the summoning fails.

    All summoning enemies have an aura to indicate they can summon.

    Tweaked normal enemy spawn times to be a bit faster.

    Tweaked messages for zombie swarms and special swarms.


    Bug Fixes
    Fixed a bug that caused Player 11 to have 160 food until facing Aosoth...this bugfix should impact the pacing of the game quite a bit, as this affected what kinds of normal enemies spawned. Hopefully it'll just improve it, but it might be a bit too hard now. More tweaks to come there, probably.



    1.40d Changelog

    Vehicles
    Tank: Increased max Energy from 300 to 500.
    Purger: Increased max Energy from 1000 to 2000.
    Light Tank: Increased max Energy from 500 to 1000.

    • Barricade
    • MG Turret
    • Flamer Turret
    • Sentry
    • Energy Generator
    • Adrenaline Injection
    • Det Pack
    Tweaked timing of floating text for interactive buildings.


    Items
    When placing a Det Pack, there's a red aura that flashes to indicate its AoE to everyone.


    Enemies
    Chaos Rift auras get added over time instead of all at once. There's also a message each time the aura gets added, and the model size of the Chaos Rift increases each time.


    Endings
    Tweaked ending messages.

    The Best ending now checks for whether you've defeated each Megaboss at least once.




    1.40c Changelog

    Enemies
    Chaos Rift now spawns at 10,000,000 points from 9,000,000.
    Chaos Rift's location gets pinged for 60 seconds from 10.

    Increased upgrade drops from Megabosses.

    Decreased Medpack/Recovery Pack drop rate from normal enemies and minibosses.

    More Zombies will spawn instead of Corrupted Civilians.


    Bug Fixes
    Fixed some issues causing frame lag later in the game, particularly with lots of units that fire physics-based projectiles.



    1.40b Changelog

    Game
    Tweaked the point thresholds for the endings.
    Worst: 0-1,500,000 points
    Bad: 1,500,001 - 2,999,999
    Okay: 3,000,000 - 5,999,999
    Good: 6,000,000 - 9,999,999
    Best: 10,000,000+

    Tweaked ending hints.

    The Worst, Bad, and Good endings spawn Erinyes, Big Momma's Revenge, Defiler, and Aosoth if they haven't been faced yet.


    City
    Added Light Tank to Vehicle Bay.

    Placed arrow shop marker doodads above all interactive buildings.


    Bug Fixes
    Fixed auto-rez not working.



    1.40a Changelog

    Heroes
    When a stubborn spirit has max mana, it auto-rezzes its hero immediately


    City
    The Church is now an interactive building. You can go there and get a global rez/refresh cooldowns for 1300 energy.

    There's now a Vehicle Bay in the upper right corner you can now interact with to get vehicles and vehicle keys. More vehicles to come.
    Tank: as the ones that spawn on the map.
    Purger Tank: Like the Tank, but an incinerator main gun, Flamethrower instead of Tank Shell, AMARDS, and 1000 Energy.


    Enemies
    Miniboss spawn interval changed from 75,000 points to 30,000
    Boss spawn interval changed from 250,000 points to 125,000

    Tweaked enemy awareness levels to reduce the incidence of enemies ADDing to go kill civilians while they're being shot at by players



    1.40 Changelog

    City
    There are now two shops in the cities, one selling offensive items and the other defensive items. They each only have 4 items in stock at a time, and their stock changes every 5 minutes.

    Removed tanks from the city area.

    Added another tank and energy generator in the west side of the outpost.

    There will be some more special buildings like the Hospital, News Station, etc. in coming versions, including a vehicle garage.


    Enemies
    Reduced the cap on the number of Pit-Born enemies by half.
    Doubled the HP, regen rate, and base damage of all Pit-Born units.


    Bug Fixes
    I spent a few hours troubleshooting the post-1.29 bug with Vexorian's optimizer that causes Neutral Passive to become Player 16, etc., to no avail. So until I need more map space, or a new map optimizer comes out that fixes those bugs, this map will be non-optimized.



    1.39b Changelog

    Items
    Medkit heals 150 HP per second for 4 seconds from 100 HP per second for 5 seconds.

    Recovery Kits heal 150 HP and Energy/sec for 2 seconds from 100 HP/Energy per second for 3 seconds.

    Fixed a bug where you couldn't pick up health/energy pickups if you had a full inventory


    General
    Reduced Civilian rescue timer from 5 to 3.


    Classes
    Scout
    Heroes with Double Time! active passively fast rescue in a 300 AoE.



    1.39a Changelog

    Items
    Added Recovery Kits to the game. They recover 100 Health/Energy per second for 3 seconds, and remove negative buffs on pickup.

    Energy Cells no longer drop from killing enemies. When killing enemies and you need energy, Recovery Kits will drop instead of Medkits.

    Medkit/Recovery Kit pickups that drop from slain enemies now have a slight offset to their spawn point so when multiples drop, they don't stack up.

    NPCs
    Tweaked starting SLAP/Sniper Team spawn points.



    1.39 Changelog

    Heroes
    Stubborn Spirits now have a 2-slot inventory, so they can transport items and pick up Energy Cells. If you pick up any stat upgrades, they'll transfer to your Hero.

    On Stunned enemies, melee abilities now deal double knockback and damage.


    Items
    Medkits and Energy Cells now auto-pickup like stat boosts if the player is not at full health or energy, respectively.

    Medkit now heals 100 HP/second for 5 seconds from 50 HP/second for 10 seconds.

    Enemies now drop Medkits and Energy Cells randomly. Base chance is:
    • 0% per item for minions and spawning pits
    • 1% for normals
    • 5% for minibosses, per player
    • 10% for bosses, per player
    • 50% for megabosses, per player
    So on a team of 6, a megaboss may drop up to 6 Medkits and 6 Energy Cells. The odds are increased based on player status (HP/energy lost, dead players).


    General
    Max movement speed of projectiles per interval reduced to 45 from 50, to prevent collision issues.

    Players who -save for the first time (or otherwise didn't -load) now get a mini-tutorial on how saving and loading benefits them in future games.

    Updated game message when you use the "display top scores" ability to point to the Hive Workshop page, etc.

    Added command -AI #, where all NPCs within range use the "Hint (NPC)" ability to turn on their automatic AI to patrol the map, take high ground (for long range units), and assist with events.

    NPCs affected by the -follow command will now periodically automatically follow your hero until they're subject to a different player's -follow command, or the -call command, or use of their AI activation ability. That way when they do things with their newfound smart AI, they'll go back to following you without needing tedious micro.


    NPCs
    Friendly NPCs now have basic AI routines to use their abilities and act somewhat intelligently most of the time

    Close Assault Troopers now have Assault's Flamethrower, and will use it to reflect projectiles.

    Police renamed to Sniper Team; Attack range now 1,800 from 1,000.

    Ash: This game works on the premise that you just want to kill things, with little to no story behind it. It's a follow up of Nightsong Operatives, and uses the same systems, spells and items from it.

    It gets hard pretty early on, and can leave new players with a 'wtf just happened?' feeling, although that said; the game only lasts 5 minutes without picking up time extensions.

    Some classes are pretty useless, such as Assault, whilst others do masses of damage and have the most epic abilities known to man, with that said however, so do the bosses.

    It wouldn't surprise me if people complain that they're too hard, one of them ate me. On top of that, it bugs the player. If you are eaten by him and don't get out, you won't be able to revive.

    The map is fun to play as a side game in between more 'competitive' ones and provides for an interesting 30 minutes, well done.

    4/5

    wow awesome map, i really like it couse that it isnt like other survival maps... but 1 little thing, you should maybe make Boss'es a bit weaker, i died kinda easy on them (easyest mode) especially at the one with the corpse worms... but when that is mentioned, i really like it alot think i'll play it with my friends...

    In one word i can describe this map wich is wonderfull, really wonderfull,Its a real
    MASTERPIECENo joke, a real masterpiece! Nightsong Operatives was great too but too buggy, this was fine. The ghost idea.. Adrenaline.. the heroes.. I LOVE THE SQUAD LEADER. Hes so .... Epic? Well keep doing some good work! If I would deep review this, then I would give nearly everywhere 3/3 (except balance theres 2/3), It's really graet, enjoyable, action is great, this game never gets boring, cause everytime a new horde of zombies appear.

    Thanks Finallegacy! I'm going to be fixing up Nightsong Operatives in the coming weeks.

    X-maul, were you using your hero abilities? Most of the bosses and minibosses you can't just go toe to toe with. You have to use your innate abilities (kick, sprint), as well as your hero abilities to do your best. Also, some classes are stronger/weaker vs certain enemies and bosses, so vs a miniboss like Abbadon (which creates the worms), if you're a class that lacks area effect damage abilities, you're going to be at a disadvantage.

    Also, 98b has many changes/fixes, which you can see in the changelog -

    Oops, I had the uncompressed version up at 3.3 MB. The compressed map is now up, like it was in previous versions, at 2.65 MB. Though if you're referring to some other problem with hosting please be more specific.

    That's really strange. I've never heard of such an issue in all my years of playing Warcraft III. And I haven't been able to find anything on that issue in Google so far. Nor have I found you talking about it in any of your other posts here. So I'm not sure what I can do about that problem yet. If I find more information I'll see what I can do.

    Did you still get that problem after hosting the 2.65 MB version?

    If you wrap youtube tags around the vid then u can see it here instead of using link. Like this:

    Makes it a bit easer to watch :) (And also looks cooler)

    This is a great map, even tough you have not got a lot of custom models, it doesn't irritate me like in other maps. The terrain is simple but realistic. And having a difficulty for every amount of players that can be playing, is fantastic as well. This really is a great and original map.
