Background Story
As a fan of Element TD, I always got some idea on improving it, but the original map was not released. I was thinking to rewrite the map by myself (for sure, it will take me ages to do that).​
Now, Karawasa and his team are no longer working on Element TD for Warcraft 3. He hoped public to continue the map.​
Seeing this as a good chance to improve it, I decided to start working on it.​
Towers/Gameplay/Creeps/Stuffs?
Elements : Normal, Fire, Nature, Earth, Light, Dark and Water.​
Each element is weaker against another element and stronger against another element.​
Special Abilities : Normal, Fast, Regeneration, Illusion, Undead, Mechanical.​
The towers that can be built are based on elements, while creeps spawned may have special abilities. Have fun.​
They are way too much for me to post here, so I linked it to the official site of Element TD.​
Changelog :
v5.0
Tower :
Spore Cloud :
- The spores are seperated once the primary spore expired.
Contamination :
- Reverted back to older version.

Performance improvement :
Replaced AutoIndex with my own unit indexing system.
Uses Alloc(by Sevion) to allocate structs.
Modified some spells to use T32(Jesus4Lyf).
Rewrote ORBEngine(my damage detection system-based).
Replaced large amount O(n) search with O(1).
Improved some spells's script, making them more efficient.

Gameplay
Rescale time between level to 14/11.5/9/6.5/4
Removed special workers.

Known Issues to be solved in future :
- Scoreboard not coming out in certain situation.
- Players may get different elements when playing in same random mode.

List to things to be improved
- Rewrote the map, making it easier for future development and more efficient.

I'm not going to hide the original version for myself.
I hope you can learn some stuffs from the open source. :)
If you are going to play it nicely, I recommend you to use the non-Open Source version as it is more efficient.

Oh, so you'll continue it (at least, here) :p

And the Open Source has the same problem as the people in the eletd forum, crash about unfounded functions

Well I'm back. Nice to see someone decided to play with the open source. I will PM you. I intend to start work from the 4.3b version but would like to incorporate some of your changes.

People not only need to run the NewGen editor but they also need UMSWE enabled (an option within NewGen).

Are you encouraging people to make their own version of EleTD?
Eg, could somebody like me make a Element TD Teams?
For example.

Or is this some kind of way to show users things, helping them by showing your code etc.

Originally I released the open source when I quit WC3 so that people could make their own versions. Now that I am back, mine should be the official version. However, a totally different spinoff like Teams would be quite fine by me.

I'm quit from the development. Chances exist, I may still coming back for the development, but not now, it is still a long way to go.

Hmm, the idea of a Team Ele Td kinda excites me.
However I hate the thought of stealing an idea.
If I ever do something like that, I will ofcourse add credits to you.

New beta update, big improvement again!
(Bug hunting yet to be performed and fixed in next beta.)

P/S : NewGen 5e is bugged on this map now. When you complied the map by using it, 2 players are unable to build any tower as the ground data is messed up. Use NewGen 5d + Jasshelper 0.A.2.B.

Beta 09 is up! Critical bug fixes.
Future beta will be focused on bug hunting instead of adding new features, then followed by RC (Release Candidate). :)

P/S : Ignore the cheat and bug testing triggers. I used it for debugging purpose.

Glad to see you are back to working on this. A few quick hits to improve the WC3 version;

-Remove the interest upgrade...just not balanced and can't be
-Make arrow/cannon towers support attribute so they don't get buffed
-Make tier 3 support duals (waterfall etc.) to 90% support from 120%
-Increase duration of Napalm buff (Flamethrower) to 15 seconds

Any questions feel free to email me or contact on FB.

When you get a stable version let me know and I'll get the word out. It would be very good if you could compile a list of all changes since you started.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
