D&D Map - Special Effects

the Lumpy

►►►
As probably 0 of you know, I'm making a Dungeons and Dragons map.

I would like the DMs to be able to add special effects to units. Right now I'm looking for suggestions as to what special effects you think I should have available. Please post your ideas.

Thanks!

Fire, lots of fire. Unit missles etc. They can all be in a special effect variable, then when say you type something it picks one from the variable index and applies it to the area specified. You can take DoBRP's idea and make it so 0 is origin, 1 is chest etc.

Okay, thanks. I already have a pretty good idea of how to do the triggers, though. I was thinking of something with a dialog box to let you choose, like you would choose the category, and then it would show all the special effects and you could click one.

That would be cool but would require alot of time... alot of time... alot of time... alot of time... alot of time... alot of *zzzz*

ANYWAYS yea I see how that would be nice, choose from say 'weapons' 'fire effects' 'orbs' then it asks more specific in that group, and finally where to attach it to. Then it attaches to all units in selection :D that'd be great! be great! be great! ok ill stop :rolleyes:

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
