Why should I care?

Ever wanted to make a neato spell, but never had enough true grit to make a schweat test map to go along with it?

Maybe you thought to "borrow" some else's, but even that seemed like too damned much work.

In the end, you resigned to uploading a blank 64x64 grid of boring, and plum forgot to include an anti-death serum for your hero.

If this sounds like you, read on. If not, read on anyway. You just might come to change your mind.

Once upon a time, there was Tinki3. He made a Spell Test Map Template, and life was good. Delorean forward in time and make a pit stop in 2011. What was just fine and dandy in 2007 suddenly leaves us wanting.

A new age of WC3 map making calls for a new age of Demo Maps. One incorporating vJASS syntax, and the general reconfigurability and added efficiency imparted by using JASS natives.

After all, your super special spell calls for a similarly super special spell test map, no?

Ergo, a revamped, fresh spin on the concept.

Template Includes:
  • Lush terrain*
  • Hero and creep revival
  • Hero restoration
  • Pre-modified Gameplay Constants
  • Ready to go caster dummy
  • Exportable Demo Map Library
  • A not so special readme document
  • Optional custom weather, item drops, creep camp level increases and much, much more!
  • Other such goodies
*This is is no way indicative of and should not be misconstrued to imply a TH general consensus.

Questions?

It's too small.
Maybe, but then again, getting from point A to point B just got a whole lot easier.

I noticed something in the map's custom script.
Leave it. Unless you pain for death!

Can I use this?
Yes, people have actually asked me before if they could use my publicly released resources.

Can I use this without credits???!?
I'd prefer you didn't, but then again, if you can just manage to remove that confounding player text...

How do I configure this?
If you have to ask, you're probably better off leaving well enough alone.

My hero won't die.
Cheating is as cheating does.

What if I have a suggestion or bug report?
I'm all ears. Literally, my ears are huge. Seriously though, the more comments the merrier.

This map sucks!
You're entitled to your opinion, just not in my thread.

Can I help?
Sure can!​

Make it a library anyone can plug into their map if they don't want to use your terrain and then you're in business.

not a half bad idea

I like the separate triggers in the demo map, but an all encompassing ancillary library in case people want to export the script should do it

  • The Helper The Helper:
    Hopefully it will be more pleasure than work
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Recently tried out ChatGPT about WE triggering. Wow it's capable of giving a somewhat legitimate response.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am sure it has read all the info on the forums here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i think triggering is just scripting and chatgpt is real good at code
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yeah I suppose so. It's interesting how it can explain in so much detail.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    But yet it won't work.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it does a bad ass job doing excel vba code it has leveled me up at my job when I deal with excel that is for sure
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Nice! I love Excel coding as well. Has always been using Google to help me. Maybe I'll use ChatGPT next time when I need it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah whatever it puts out even if it is not perfect I can fix it and the latest version of chatgpt can create websites from pictures it will not be long until it can do that with almost all the tools

    Im worried they'll change things for worse
  • jonas jonas:
    A lot more low quality content, a lot more half-baked stuff.
  • jonas jonas:
    If you're good enough to spot the mistakes of the answers you don't need it in the first place. If you aren't good enough, you're gonna rely on some half-correct stuff
  • The Helper The Helper:
    the earlier AI is and has been used extensively for publishing news and other content for a while now
  • jonas jonas:
    I used to be active on quora, it's now flooded with extremely similar, superficial answers that often miss the point of the question
