This ideas just came to me in dreams...:D
The map will have:
  1. Symmetrical terrains for both (2) sides...
  2. It's Player vs AI, which the AI will always choose the same heroes as the Player choose for each line...
  3. No Player Colors will be implemented, everything will have Black (Neutral) Color, including Player Heroes, Player-based creeps and neutral creeps...
  4. I'll make sure that the Player won't see the difference between the allies and enemies...
  5. All spells (whether its healing, damaging, disabling, etc) are able to be casted on both allies and enemies...
If the responses are mostly "Worst", then I'll not continue this idea, but if happen otherwise I'll be happy to make this map...:D
Edit: I'll make this map no matter what people says, I'll see this through...

Why would you make it so the player can't tell the difference?

The original AoS was players vs AI.
But seriously, I doubt you could do a good enough AI in wc3 to make the game even remotely fun. An AoS is a very complicated game, an AI for such a game is a very complicated program.
And without the AI your game is basically worthless.

Well, this is where I can use this site for... People are very helpful here, so I guess I will try some and asking for something here if I found some trouble, but only if more "Awesome" responses are have more vote than the "Worst"...

Do something simpler and just have some fun. Something doable. If I'm to guess, I presume you'd give up the map halfway (or quarterway). Not implying anything about your capability to produce a map, but simply your interest.
I'm really interested to make my own challenging, fun and confusing AoS map, so I'll try my best to finish it if people's responses are good for this map...


Edit: Thanks for your (Accname and Vypur85) concern, I really appreciate your attention, but have you vote about what you're thinking for my map...?

I dont think you can really ask somebody for help on an AI. Thats a real lot of work and there isnt too many people around anymore since wc3 is pretty old.
Of course, you can try, but I really dont think there will be too much help from anybody in terms of programming an AI for your map.

Acc has some valid points. Consider them carefully.
Everyone has ideas. Great ones. Awesome ones. Best in the world.
But not everyone can persevere.
Then again, it's all good for you if you want to try. You have my best wishes.

But I've seen countless disappointments.

Excuse: Laptop cannot support the game anymore? :rolleyes:

> ...have you vote ...
I'll go for 'awesome' (not exactly the choice of word I prefer) and see what happens from here. :)

So you have to play it carefully, and sharply notice which are your actual allies, and which are the enemies...:D
Also to makes you more aware when you're casting a spell...
So you have identical units, all matching color, in Warcraft III, and have the expectation that anyone is going to be anywhere near sober enough to keep track of any significant number of units that they do not have activated?

What about any other sites...? Is there another sites like this sites whose willing to help me...?

I'm pretty sure that hardware will never be the problem, I'm using pc...:)

Hope you're not too drunk when you'll playing this map...


Edit: I also hope that you're not too drunk when you vote...:p

I dont vote on principle. At least not if the poll does not have the choice that I would pick.

Seriously, if you want to do something, just do it. Making such poll and waiting for 28 days is pretty much a waste of time. So what are you gonna do if the poll turns out bad 28 days later? Create another poll and wait again? You'll never get things done. Besides, after 28 days, your passion in your map would've been gone by then. So even if you get all awesome votes, I doubt there'll be any progress at all.

Also, if you're really gonna start a map, finish the gameplay and then focus on the heroes. Don't waste your time creating more than 10 heroes with hundreds of awesome skills and finally give up on the map. I see this a lot.

Just my 2 cents worth of useless advice. Take it or leave it. :)

I don't think so, because I'm so busy at work but in the next month I'll be free from work, besides I had write down everything thing that I want to applied in this map...
The map was not started yet, it doesn't matter what people say, I'll finish this map once I got my holidays...:)

What you would say about this...? Pathetic...?
I would say its a decent idea. One could try it.
I would also say, that wc3 is, in my opinion, pretty much dead. You can do it because you like to do it, but dont expect much feedback or any help. There is too few people who are still interested in map making, and only a small fraction of them actually knows how its done.

If you just love to create maps, then do it. I still work with the editor every once in a while, just because of nostalgia.
But if you actually want to achieve anything with this, forget about it. Go a level higher, learn a programming language, and create a game of your own.

Good luck then. :)
In fact, you can actually start now. Unless, of course, you're expecting the worst.
And you haven't really respond to the 'if you get lousy votes, do you wanna create another poll' thing.
 
Hi guys, it's been a while since my last activity in this thread... Now, every progress about my map that I want to make is in here, thanks for your attention, I really appreciate it...

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    They aren't cutting my responsibilities or interjecting in my management abilities or anything, it's just stupid shit that comes up. And they don't exactly have people lining up for my job, there's not that many people applying for the positions I hire
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, whatever. Thanks for listening guys
  • jonas jonas:
    Sure :) Let us know how it ends
  • Varine Varine:
    All of these things will end happily, they're just stressful. And I still lack many good friends that I can go to, and the ones I can are preoccupied with similar things. Thus general chit chat, cuz for some reason TH and Ghan and Tom all actively keep it up.
  • Varine Varine:
    Just gotta keep Miss Mazie up through the week until her shock wears off and she realizes that she still has family all around her, and bossman will do whatever he's going to do and I'll respond appropriately when it happens. Thank you all for the support, I do very much appreciate everyone being here for me through the years

  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Best of luck Varine!
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I just gotten myself an offer to work in China. The pay quadruples my current one. Damn.... Not really ready to start a new life there in China.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have heard that they pay pretty good to English teachers in China - you would be an expat
  • jonas jonas:
    Cool, what kind of job?
  • Accname Accname:
    I would be careful with jobs in China. They can be hit and miss depending on where in China you go. Places like hong kong / Shengzen / Beijing can be neat. Other places not so much.
  • Accname Accname:
    I would recommend searching for some first person experiences for the city you got the offer in. Especially now when the political situation in China is deteriorating.
  • jonas jonas:
    Accname, long time no see
  • jonas jonas:
    What have you been up to
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hey Accname, welcome back.
  • Accname Accname:
    Not much. Working in the Renewable Energy Sector as an IT Consultant. Its okay, but I think I preferred working at the university. It was more relaxed and you met all kinds of crazy people there.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I gotten a teaching position for Biology in a college in Wuhan (yes, there)... I suppose it should be fine there (I hope). Many of my ex colleagues are teaching in China as well currently (none in Wuhan though)
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    And I signed the contract already. I guess there's no turning back....
  • jonas jonas:
    @Accname how many hours do you work? I heard in some sectors IT consultants rack up insane hours
  • jonas jonas:
    @vypur85 sounds nice, have fun : )
  • Accname Accname:
    I am supposed to work 40 hrs a week, but I can work more if I like and I will be paid for those hours (as long as I don't go too far, there are laws and company policies, etc)
  • Accname Accname:
    In practice its basically work as much as you like, as long as the job gets done in time.
  • jonas jonas:
    Haha, my job is like that as well... that usually means I have a few 70-80 hours weeks a year, and lots of 20 hours weeks...
  • jonas jonas:
    a few weeks ago, one of my friends basically said "jonas, I received an invitation to submit something to conference X but I'm too lazy to do it and also the conference isn't advanced enough for my high level of research*, why don't you write something? Oh by the way, the deadline is in two weeks. Enjoy!" so I got two 80 hour weeks out of that kind offer. (*of course he didn't say those parts, but it's a better story this way)
  • jonas jonas:
    now I'll have next week off to make up for overtime :p and I'll play some good old gothic 2
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Hope you are enjoying that gothic 2~
