Other Coup D'etat

have you read my post or are you still thinking about it?
i am curious what your game will look like, would you mind uploading some preview minimap? Handdrawn or ingame?
For now I'm working on my Stance System. I'm still thinking about the ATK and DEF Rating. Most likely, I'll keep them because I believe those factors will impact the game nonetheless. And about being the Commander, I think I'll just remove that aspect then. I'm in dire need of a terrain designer. My terraining isn't great, so still waiting for a terrainer. However, if there are no terrainers by the time I complete my Stance System, I'll just have to terrain the map myself.

maybe you are right there, though i want to remind you to keep the games as simple as possible.

yeah terraining is pretty important. though it doesnt make any "real" difference for the actual gameplay it determines the first impression of the game and shows whether the maker (or the team) took time to make the map or just roughly cobbled something together.

i am doing the terrain for my maps by myself and though i wouldnt call myself very skillful its enough for the needs of my rather practical then aesthetical orientated games. i would offer you my mere average skills but i havent gotten alot of time and i doubt i could help you within the next weeks or month, besides i want to work a little on my own project.

well, good luck, i hope you will find somebody skillful.
 
I know you are primarly looking for a terrain designer, but I would like to volunteer as a Counselor. From what I read in the first post, I understand it's like a beta tester/advisor? I'm interested to hear more about your ideas of the game mechanics and whatnot. The stance system seems a bit complicated though... and i don't really understand how a team can win with three of their teammates channeling in the ceremony.

Okay sure. Really needed an adviser. Well the point of the Stance System is to add a sense of customization to the game. It would be unwise to change your stance in middle of a battle. Thus, careful planning will be needed between teammates, so that you won't need to change stances in middle of a battle.
 
Sounds really interesting. How many stances are you planning to add to each hero? How many spells per stance? Remember that for every variable you add to the game it will become more complicated and daunting for new players. Nobody really wants to play a game that they dont understand/think is too hard.

Any luck finding a terrainer?

Yeah, found a person who might be willing to terrain. Hmm, depends on the class really. For classes meant more for attacking, etc. they will have less stances. Characters meant for spamming abilities will have more. But I'm thinking a cap of 4 or 5 stances for 1 hero.

Be better than you were yesterday :D
Does Coup D'etat means that a group of dudes tries to usurp power and change a country to match their own ideals?

Yes, a coup (coo) takes place when the government is over thrown.

Added a demo map for the incomplete Stance System. Stance level is at max by default in the demo map and only 2 stances with 2 abilities are displayed. Just to show how the Stance System works. Map is protected.

Take a look on the environment I've created on TOP LEFT + TOP + LEFT (the jungle)
Oo
the trees are of kinda random type, the wooden fence together with ruin rocks looks just wrong and the texture is completely random there + without any deformation.
to me it looks like rather mediocre skills.

This is JUNGLE THEME, trees are random in a jungle, they are not all the same...
and the fence is something new that was added to an ancient forest, this is the collsision of past and present that represent an human ocupation on a place that was once a sacred jungle.

____________________
Take a look and answer the question?

A) Is it in the right size?
B) The fortress must be bigger or smaller?
C) The road that leads to the fortress must be longer? Narrow or wide?
D) did you like the snowy forest I did around the fortress?

Updated Stance System. Now indicates the stance level and experience on a Multiboard. Experience gained is set by Point Value. Shows "+x" when enemies are killed to indicate the amount of experience gained.

Want to hear some feedbacks if possible. Any bugs or any improvement, etc. Thank you.

The attachment in the post above does not seem to be the stance system. When I open Wc3 the map is named "Coup D'etat Terrain" and when I test it I am presented with a map with a snowy forrest and a big chunk of tiles in the middle. What happened?

Quest

Why not make a quest type where minor quest are available for scoring extra gold if there is no creep system or creeps in the forest for hunting.
About the orb effect It is annoying but helps in balancing in case of overpowering an attack modifier.The balance result can be seen in dota. Some attacks modifier can be not orb while others extra strong abilities can be orb or restriction of more than one modifier

  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!

    @Gyah Yeah I figured they aren't particularly valuable, but they'll at the least act as a baseline for some entry level work somewhere.
  • Varine Varine:
    I now see how horribly I spelled @Ghan
  • Varine Varine:
    I had a rough morning
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that field is going to explode and though there is competition there is going to be room for all levels in the coming years imho.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Why are we competing for rough mornings? :(
