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.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    How can you tell the difference between real traffic and indexing or AI generation bots?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air

  • The Helper The Helper:
    Another bot invasion 493 members online most of them bots that do not show up on stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm looking at a solid 378 guests, but 3 members. Of which two are me and VSNES. The third is unlisted, which makes me think its a ghost.

    I bitch about Xenforo sometimes but it really is full featured you just have to really know what you are doing to get the most out of it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is just not easy to fix styles and customize but it definitely can be done
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do know this - xenforo dropped the ball by not keeping the vbulletin reputation comments as a feature. The loss of the Reputation comments data when we switched to Xenforo really was the death knell for the site when it came to all the users that left. I know I missed it so much and I got way less interested in the site when that feature was gone and I run the site.
