    Untitled Project (brainstorm with me!)

    I need a map idea...

    I want it to be based heavily on heroes and items however completely different from Dota and hero arenas, one because Dota can never be matched and two because almost all arenas suck. I need original ideas, some creeps involved wouldnt be to bad either. Thanks.

    Trigger Request

    Ok so I basicly need a trigger that will allow the user to select a tower from a merchant and then upon them selecting it the builder then needs to be able to build it in his build menu. Think of it like hero arena but with buildings instead of abilities. I could never figure out how they did...

    TD Spawn Trigger Issue

    I have 4 spawn points in my map and for some reason there is an extra group of creeps that spawns in the corner of the map. I have no idea why seeing how there is no region over there nor did I make a trigger to spawn them there. When I get home ill post the map and if someone could look at it...

    Stopping units from "lagging"

    in my td i want 30 units to spawn from 8 spawn points, however when this happens the units stop and go every few seconds, often times getting into small groups and not waves of guys. Just wondering how to fix or at least make it a bit better.

    Evolution Type Game

    Not sure how im going to work this one out but here is the idea. You have a chemist who needs to find nutrients and other materials to make an animal. Depending on what you give him, 6 items in total, you will end up with a pet, with varying damage, health, ect. To me it sounds like it will be...

    Reducing Unit "Lag"

    Not sure how to word the title, but when there are a ton of units on the screen they seem to move very choppy. They take a few steps and stop, take another few and stop again ect. ect. Im thinking the pathing has something to do with it, but im not sure.

    Trigger Request

    This may be able to be done as an ability but I think it will need triggers. I need an ability that is a toggle invisibility. Also I need an upgrade that will allow my units to attack while in invisibility and can only be seen by reveal or some other detection ability. Thanks in advance
