Hey, I have made a TD and decided to release the alpha Version for testing. I did have a forum in general world editor help but was told to move it here. Also, that thread has not been posted in in a long time. On to the TD:

Number of creeps spawned is equivilent to how many players are playing. There are 30 waves.
Waves are:
3 boss waves, 3 flying waves, 2 etheral waves, 1 invisibility wave and 21 normal waves.
There are six tower & builder types of which the Player can have three. Types Are:
Poison: Cheap, low-mod damage with slowing and DPS passive abilities
Normal: Basic Arrow and Hammer Towers
Magic: High damage expensive tower, one with slow aura passive ability. One also doesn't attack but has Rain of Magic instead.
Elemental: Prices range from Moderate to Moderatly High in cost and damage dealt relates to cost. No abilities.
Advanced: Advanced Arrow and Hammer Towers. Advanced Arrow has multishot. Advanced Hammer has Powerwave
Spirit: Mod-Low cost dealing low or no damage. One tower has true sight, one has Spirit Call
There are four modes that you can use (Not including Normal).
Modes are:
Short Mode: Half the time between levels
Long Mode: Double the time between levels
Basic Towers: You can only build basic towers
Deathmatch: You play with one life.
There is also a flying combat unit that you can train with the ability Liquid Fire

Changes from Previous Alpha Versions:
*Creeps have changed from small amounts of Hard creeps to large amounts of easy creeps. This has hopefully made it easier to win.
*Have fixed Etheral Levels
*Have fixed win condition
*Have Fixed (Hopefully) Creep behind tower problem
*Have fixed region Spawn Leak
*Added 'lower spawn count' trigger for when a player leaves

Rules for Testing and Replying:
1. You are not allowed to edit this map, send it to other people or upload it to any sites unless permission is given by me. You are allowed to check the maps triggers to see how things are done but otherwise...
2. Do not just reply with 'It sucked' or 'It rocked' This will not help me improve my map. If you wish to say that it sucked or rocked, say why.
3. Please tell me about any bugs that occur in the map. Also, tell me if things are too hard/easy, too expensive/cheap or the game is too short/long.
4. You may post new ideas for creeps or towers. Note: If you posted it, it does not necassarily mean it will be added to the game. Only ideas that fit in with the game will be added. (This will be judged by me)
5. (optional) Please try all the modes and mode combos. I need to know if they work or not. Mode combos that will not work are combos including both Short Mode and Long Mode.
6. Have fun, though there are many rules, the main idea of any map is to have fun playing it so, seriously, just have fun.

Hey I tested your map...at first I didn't know where to put the towers, but after like I got it... the only thing I didn't like was the spawing cause if all players are playing this happens...


I think it would be better to spawn them 1 by 1, and it is just one small change to your spawn trigger...

Trigger:
  • Spawn
    • Events
      • Time - LevelTimer expires
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • For each (Integer A) from 1 to UnitNumber, do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • Unit - Create 1 UnitType for Player 12 (Brown) at (Center of Spawn 1 <gen>) facing Default building facing degrees
          • Unit - Create 1 UnitType for Player 12 (Brown) at (Center of Spawn 2 <gen>) facing Default building facing degrees
          • Unit - Create 1 UnitType for Player 12 (Brown) at (Center of Spawn 3 <gen>) facing Default building facing degrees
          • Unit - Create 1 UnitType for Player 12 (Brown) at (Center of Spawn 4 <gen>) facing Default building facing degrees
          • Wait 1.50 seconds
      • Trigger - Turn on Start Next Level <gen>

That means that you wrote the location variable's name incorrectly.

With the previous version, it was impossible to win so I never got a chance to test it. Here is the Win Trigger, Can anyone tell me whats wrong with it:

Trigger:
  • Win
    • Events
      • Time - Every 0.01 seconds of game time
    • Conditions
      • Level Equal to 31
    • Actions
      • Game - Victory Player 1 (Red) (Show dialogs, Show scores)
      • Game - Victory Player 2 (Blue) (Show dialogs, Show scores)
      • Game - Victory Player 3 (Teal) (Show dialogs, Show scores)
      • Game - Victory Player 4 (Purple) (Show dialogs, Show scores)
      • Game - Victory Player 5 (Yellow) (Show dialogs, Show scores)
      • Game - Victory Player 6 (Orange) (Show dialogs, Show scores)
      • Game - Victory Player 7 (Green) (Show dialogs, Show scores)
      • Game - Victory Player 8 (Pink) (Show dialogs, Show scores)


Also, with the expected a name error, how do you say part 1 of an array? I typed in the variable name then underscore, the number of the part of the array and it didn't work.

the condition most likely never happen, I hope level is an integer variable that get increase at the end of each wave.
also you know you can use loop
for each integer 1 to 8
show victory for player A

sorry if this is a bit too early, the times on the forums are different to the times on my clocks and I haven't yet figured out the time difference. (For ome reason, the difference seems to change)

Oops, was 4 hours to early

Hey your challenge of -BTSMDM is impossible because when you reach lvl 27 you can't see the creeps so you can't kill them and you die...

You should put something like this on the Level Set trigger on the part of the 27 lvl...

Trigger:
  • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
    • If - Conditions
      • Level Equal to 27
    • Then - Actions
      • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
        • If - Conditions
          • (Basic Tower Mode <gen> is on) Equal to True
        • Then - Actions
          • Set UnitNumber = ((Number of players in TDers) x 20)
          • Set UnitType = Murloc Nightcrawler (Level 27) <b>(But it doesn' have invi)</b>
        • Else - Actions
          • Set UnitNumber = ((Number of players in TDers) x 20)
          • Set UnitType = Murloc Nightcrawler (Level 27)
    • Else - Actions

By the way I see that at every lvl you set a new value to UnitNumber, but you never really update the TDers group to see if any player left so I find it little bit useless... you could at map initialization after the TDers group is finished set the UnitNumber and so you don't need to put again and again or you could make a trigger to update the TDers group and have it run at start of Level Set so if any player left less creeps will spawns...

P.S if you want I think I can make the trigger for any of the two options or leave it like that it works fine :D
