this is a game i have been working on and i just need some peoples opinions about it. there is more that i need to add but i want to make sure that the gameplay wont be too boring or repetetive.

any advice is appreciated either good or bad...



Things to consider
1. This is my first game to be as harsh as possible when giving feedback
2. most of the units are there when you start, so you dont have to go through the whole building process
3. more environmental stuff will be added to make the game look less boring
4. units are builder ant, worker ant, warrior ant, dirt tosser, queen ant, drone, healer ant, scavenger ant

more things to consider will be added when i can think of them:nuts:

Come on Windex, maybe he just doens't know how to do it?

To make screenshots, just use 'print screen' in game, then the screenshot will be placed on your windows clipboard. Then you can just paste them in paint and save them as a usable image file. Then you only have to upload them to an image hosting site such as photobucket and post the image link in your post.

why have i got peasants and a human townhall if i am playing with ants?

well and the skill of your 'mounds' which is ordering all warrior ants to attack is just ordering them to 'move' not to 'attack/move' which would be much better...

I've also made a CTF map from scratch, with ants as the theme, Ant Attack. I released it a long time ago, on February 17, 2008. Though the ants there are more on the fantasy side, magics..

nevermind im too lazy............
ill get it eventually

If you have Adobe Photoshop, then just use Print Screen in-game.

Actually, the screenshots go within the Screenshots folder if done that way. (That folder is inside your Wc3 folder). Then open your Photoshop. Because they're TGA image files you need Photoshop to open 'em. Then save it as a JPG file. You're ready to upload it to Photobucket (I mean, there are others out there).

I'm lookin' forward to those screenies:thup:

It takes less than 10 minutes to take 5 picures. that's not long or hard.

Get 'The Gimp' if you can't afford or know how to get photo shop for free (Legally, surprisingly)

They mean for pasting it and editing the picture. To take a screenshot, just go in-game OR in the World Editor (I suggest putting on In-Game View Settings) and pressing Print-Screen button. Every time you finish taking one picture, unless you have a saving program like XFire can, go to a image editor, and paste it.

You can also just use paint, although it won't be as nice. One picture at a time unless you have, like I said before, saving program.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    Heard Houston got hit pretty bad by storms last night. Hope all is well with TH.

    New recipe is another summer dessert Berry and Peach Cheesecake - https://www.thehelper.net/threads/recipe-berry-and-peach-cheesecake.194169/
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!

    Finally finding about some of the bots that are flooding the users online - bytespider apparently is a huge offender here - ignores robots.txt and comes in from a ton of different IPs

    @The Helper I'm really not seeing the "Signature" link in the sidebar on that page. Here's a screenshot:

    I have reported it - I was wondering why nobody I have given sigs to over the last few years have used them
