Accnames Marine Shooter

Hi all,

inspired by vypurs map I made this little shooter engine.
Took me about 5 hours.

Heres the controls:
Rightclick = Shoot the equiped gun in direction of the mouse. You can shoot while moving.
Move [Q] = Leftclick the position you want to move to.
Pick up Item [R] = Leftclick the item you want to pick up. Its not possible to queue orders
Lock Camera = Type in "-lock" in the chat to lock the camera at your marine. (Will also zoom out a little)
Spawn aliens = Type in anything in the chat to spawn 9 aliens which will hunt you down.

My idea about the map:
Up to 10 players can play as marines starting in the middle of the map.
They are only equiped with basic guns at this point in time.
In every corner of the map is an egg pool from the aliens. Aliens will spawn here in groups and move out to hunt the marines. As time goes by, more aliens will spawn with each cycle.
There is also an alien queen at each egg pool. The queen will lay new eggs as time goes by, this will cause an infinite number of aliens to be spawned over time if the players dont kill these queens.

The twist is, the ammunition for the players is limited. There will be some weapons and ammo placed at fixed locations throughout the map, but there is no way to ever get any more ammo then what is already placed there. On the other hand, infinite numbers of aliens will come unless the queens are killed.
This forces the players to act, time is an important resource! And bullets are too!

Aliens are not very tough, they go down with only a few shots, but they are incredibly fast and they kill players quickly if they catch up.
Players can heal themselfs when they find medikits, and maybe I will add a medi-bay where players can get fully healed periodically.

Since the number of aliens spawned increases with time it will be fairly easy to destroy an egg pool early on if you rush for it. This is, however, quite dangerous since you wont have too many good weapons if you dont take your time to search for them.


Will I ever finish it?
Unlikely I guess. I can feel my motivation slipping at this very moment.
But maybe one day I will. You can never know for sure.

Use the flame thrower. Those little suckers cant do shit against it.

I am going to have different kinds of aliens. Each weapon will be better in some situations and worse in others.
The flamethrower can deal good splash damage over a very short range. Against many weak melee aliens its quite effective. But it isnt a good choice against one super strong alien since that will kill you before you can kill it.
The flamerthrower is also a bad choice against ranged aliens.

I cant use the normal cliffs for walls.
The bullets are flying units, if I use normal cliffs their animations will mess up when they get close to the wall.

I know the walls suck, I dont like the model at all, but I couldnt find a better one on theHive.
If you know of a better model please let me know. Would be very useful indeed.

There's a trick that allows "unit" bullets to interact properly with Blizzard cliffs in terms of flying height. I can't remember what that trick was though...

I am not working at all. This map was just a little joke I made, I do not actualy want to create wc3 maps anymore.
Maybe if you would give me a time machine I would go back 10 years and churn out some awesome maps.

Help Users
  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I read in the PC Gamer review that it was not much of an update to the game like just a re-release
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's a good remaster. They did not want to change the game much because there are still many die-hard players out there that wouldn't like it to be a new game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They've said they are open to adding new content in the future, but wanted to get what's there correct first. As it is, for what you get the $40 asking price is a bit steep.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah that is a high price think I am going to wait a minute and see if it goes down some.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Looking forward to doing some dungeon grinding again though.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still 101 bots on the site constantly
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    my bots got out of their cage? oh no
  • The Helper The Helper:
    these bots are from russia, china and asia they are less than they were but more than they need to be I have no idea why they hover here
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Probably because of my Headline News
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Facebook is getting fucked right now lol
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I learned one thing from the Facebook outage - BGP - I am sure Ghan is an expert in it but I did not know what the name of it was I knew there was something like that there though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    What is up Tom?
  • jonas jonas:
    We once considered doing a project on BGP looking for problems in the implementations. But we didn't get sufficient interest and Tony Li was mean to us so we said whatever
  • Varine Varine:
    hello, peeps. I got most of my computer back up to Idaho so I have passwords again after that nightmare of like 4 months
  • Varine Varine:
    We're all trying to get time off now, but holy shit. I did not expect it to be that busy. Every day was a historical record, and every week was a total sales record for like all of summer. My pay is going to almost double next summer, which makes cooking finally a viable career, I might actually afford to change industries soon!
  • Varine Varine:
    We had people ask if there was anything we could do about the fucking sun. There's like 30 inside tables and every outside table has a sunbrella thing.
  • Varine Varine:
    No, I'm sorry, I cannot move the sun and the umbrella doesn't go 90 degrees sideways. They unfortunately had to deal with a sunset across mountains and a lake, we can only imagine the horror they had to undergo by visiting our restaurant
  • Varine Varine:
    Well, they do, but they're big and blow away and a 10 foot runaway umbrella is a much bigger problem than some cunt with the sun sorta in her eyes
  • The Helper The Helper:
    What is up Varine? Good to see you buddy! Too bad you are not in Houston I have a friend that needs Cooking staff like desperately remember if you ever want to get a different landscape, not sunsets over mountains and a lake Houston has opportunity!
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Nice to see Varine back in action.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Welcome back Varine!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    can someone answer a question in the World Editor Help forum?
  • jonas jonas:
    ok
  • The Helper The Helper:
    thank you jonas!
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll probably be here through next summer at least, I get paid decent at the moment and I expect it to go up significantly next year. Plus I'm on contract through the end of the year
