DotA Allstars : Revival



An attempt to recreate the popular map, DotA Allstars.
Version: 0.240 (Beta)

Taken over by Frozen_Shadow. Original Creator: CungPowCow


A Short Story

“Darkness comes upon the ancients once again after many brawls throughout the battlegrounds. Cenarius, the Lord of the Forest, awakens the other ancients, calling them to fend off the invader; the Undead. After being destroyed at Eternity's End, the Undead are revived by a new presence.” (And yes, this story is for fun)


The Map

This map is being developed on in the hopes that map makers may have an easier time making their own map better. I've always wondered how the game would be if there were certain additions to it that never were implemented into DotA Allstars, like a new hero or game-mode. This map I've been piecing together for few months now is here. It's not done but there is a lot of headway made.

I agree, it may sound lame to do this, but it's for good reason. Why not try? There are heroes in other maps that aren't played often. If they could be tested in DotA Allstars it might give the creator a new view on how he/she could improve their hero, making more well-made maps. The reason why I feel the old template isn't good enough is because with the old one, you can't create a hero, get a few friends together to play your edited version, & after some tests get experience and data on what should be changed. With this, you can. Also, I do not support map stealing, I just think having something like this would help map makers make their own maps better.

FAQ
Question: Are you just deprotecting the map and calling it your project?

Answers: There's two things to that. One, no I'm not deprotecting anything. Two, it's not completely my project to begin with. People in the past have helped me think of this idea, I just continued its life.


Question: Why are you recreating someone else's work?

Answer: Because I want to, and because I think it'd help others.


Question: I want to help code hero abilities. Should I make it in GUI/JASS, & does it matter if it's MUI?

Answer: I would prefer we work on this in GUI. After five years of editing I still don't know JASS that well. It should be in MUI too. Post or PM me if you want to help out.

Will this pwn the UNCODEABLEZ list that members of PlayDotA have defined as unfeasable for DotA. I do hope so =)
* Dynamically modifying attack range
* Buff Timers
* Manipulation of cooldowns, checking cooldowns.
* Detecting whether damage comes from spells or from attacks.
* Detecting critical strikes/bashes/evasion.
* Spell Reflection
i suppose most of these issues can be done with an own battle system using damage detection systems and such. the question is, do the authors want to "copy" dota exactly or do they plan on making a game very similar to dota but with some, lets say, extra boni (plural of bonus???).
 

BlackRose

Forum User
Wut lol. Bonus has a plural? Bonuses? Anyways, either way. Those ideas are generic ideas, I'd say many maps won't have them possible. So it's not exactly turning into a exact DotA copy if it passed those uncodeable things?
 

Moridin

its bonuses :p. There's no boni lol.

Also I'm pretty sure this is meant to be an open dota map. As in a learning tool...not an Aos by itself.
 

FrozenShadow

I am a WolfieeifloW fan.
I won't be making an exactly replical of DotA, but it'll have most of the DotA Heroes as fillers, then I will start adding heroes of our own, once this is finally complete with all the DotA Hero fillers. I will start accepting requests in my forum, or if TheHelper grants me the possibility of adding a Sub-Forum. And this is also what CungPowCow has stated it to be, a learning tool, for GUI Lovers :)

here is a hint of a lazy guy.

since you are not having same hero mode and wtf mode (no one plays these modes anymore).
try making your spells not MUI, it will take less time to code...

Not all spells can be maintained non-MUI. For example, spells like Huskar's Burning Spears pretty much have to be MUI.

Best to make them MUI anyway. The point of this project is so that GUIers can learn from it. There's no point in them learning abilities they might not be able to use in their own maps.

Exactly. But man, writing everything in GUI might be painful (especially with the endless list of variables in the variable editor :p).

I did something like huskar spears.I just create a dummy with envenomed weapons stacking when a unit takes attack damage my huskar and order this unit to attack the target.
(I'm not saying that you have to do all spells NON-MUI, just the ones you have no need to).


Exactly. But man, writing everything in GUI might be painful (especially with the endless list of variables in the variable editor :p).
I dont use an endles list of variables...
I have like unit[1][2][3][4]
group[1][2][3][4]
etc...

-----------
[SPOIL]OFF-TOPIC: hey, you say to make it MUI so the newcomers can Ctrl+C Ctrl+V the spells ans copy them?
You like when people just copy a spell you took hours to make? Like something complicated as (omnislash)(or a spell the return the entyre game 5 seconds to the past*)?
well, this is personal, I just use NON-MUI cause I'm lazy and my AOS don't require MUI spells (I don't have -sh mode, -wtf mode or refresher orb)

*yes, Im working on this spell:p

No pain no gain :p.
And if we use hashtables we can reduce the variable count considerably :p.

That would be extremely disorganized and hard to read. Don't recommend doing that.

The point of this project is not to go, "hey look at this map. It's so cool and its made by me. I'm awesome". It's to go, "hey this map has been made before and not by us. We know it's awesome because you're playing it. Here's how it works." :p

And if we use hashtables we can reduce the variable count considerably :p.
Not to mention, if we use variables to stimulate "2D Arrays", we can reduce the varaible count considerably too. For example, something like this.

Trigger:
  • Trigger
    • Actions
      • Set Real[(1 x 5) + 1] = 100.00 <-- Damage dealt at level 1
      • Set Real[(1 x 5) + 2] = 200.00 <-- Damage dealt at level 2


Then let's say we need to set duration. We could use the same real variable instead of another one.

Trigger:
  • Trigger
    • Actions
      • Set Real[(2 x 5) + 1] = 5.00 <-- Duration at level 1
      • Set Real[(2 x 5) + 2] = 6.00 <-- Duration at level 2


Well of course, the value "5" would have to be increased based on the +x value. And if we could use v/JASS, it would make life much simpler :p

That would be extremely disorganized and hard to read. Don't recommend doing that.
He should have stuck to the "2D Array" method instead.

The point of this project is not to go, "hey look at this map. It's so cool and its made by me. I'm awesome". It's to go, "hey this map has been made before and not by us. We know it's awesome because you're playing it. Here's how it works." :p
Yeah. Although some people may just copy+paste the spells, some people out there can use it to learn.

@FrozenShadow
Is it okay if I start on a hero that hasn't been made so far? Like, Enchantress.

Okay, well you read my mind, I was going to do it in the next 2 hours, but you got me, so go ahead :)

I'm working on Faceless Void.

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.

    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
