PostSubject: Im making a map :D   Sun Jan 05, 2014 3:05 pm

I know this seems stupid, but I'm not necessarily making a map expecting others to play it, i simply enjoy making maps, that being said.... Id like to play it with you guys at some point Very Happy. I haven't been able to test it because stupid slayer never wants to test it.
Its basically a hero survival. What i have done, is take elements I liked from other maps i have played and added them to this one. Here are some examples:
-Forming a line to spread out damage from waves
-Items with % chance of casting abilities
-Scripted Boss battles
-Dungeons
-Allowing heroes to have personal quests which will change their model and upgrade their stats individually
-Secret rooms
-Gambling
-Mazing
-Item classes
-Optional Quests
Thats all i have so far

OH and i found these fucking amazing models. Like they look like their higher quality than starcraft models.

Spoiler:
 

i really like the combination, bac
fast paced games benefit a lot from quirky elements like mazing or rpg elements like questing
if wc3 still have >50 users, this might actually have gotten popular. once i have a computer again (cmon this month) id be totally down to test.

if you need any help with a trigger, gimme a shout

Hahhaha thanks seren. Burn the non believers ! I could definatly use some help!
Also sc2 universe is kinda boring so making maps in it is lame
I could probably get the game to be played fullhouse if i had a bot that hosted across servers.

I also found out that wc3 and WoW are like made on the same engine or something, so basically i can put any WoW model i want as long as my map size doesn't exceed 8MB, which is pretty awesome.

The sc2 universe isnt boring, and even if it was it shouldnt effect making a map since you can make any kind of map, it doesnt have to be set in the sc2 universe, especially since your adding in custom models
Also the models your using from WoW can be used in sc2 too, heres arthas in sc2:

Its not that wc3 and WoW use the same engine, its that someone exported the WoW models you're using into a format that wc3 can use

You can use any model in sc2 if you export it properly (in the case of WoW models it takes less than a min to export into a format that sc2 can use), and theres a 100mb limit instead of 8mb so you can do so much more if you really wanted to
Theres less restrictions on the models you can use in sc2, so they will look better then the wc3 versions of the same WoW model

If your wondering where that model in the pic is from: http://www.sc2mapster.com/forums/resources/art-assets/8347-wow-model-pack-requests/
Theres a bunch more there but they are all for sc2, and those are all already in a format that sc2 can use so you dont need to export any of them

You're wasting your life responding here seren. Stick to talking about the sc2 editor.

omg how many models did you import? you have 2mb left to go so as long as you either have enough models now or youre willing to be choosey than you'll be fine. 2mb should be enough for the actual map

how many heroes? usually having a bunch of models isn't a problem unless you pick all realllllyyyy high quality and (more so) uncompressed models.

a really really good way to get around that is to use skins
skins take an already existing model (and often already existing textures) and then retexture it in a new way. some skins are very high quality
Directors Cut skins at the hive
my favorite
most of those are 100kb, the one i linked specifically to is 250kb. either way though, that's probably significantly less than what your models are taking up -- swapping out 1 already existing model could almost definitely fit 4 new skins in

perhaps a better choice is to figure out who makes really good models that aren't huge in file size. one guy i really like is Mc! all of his later models and skins are tiny and really good quality. especially his skin for the blood mage
mc's models
mc's skins
