Well ummm best way to figure out how the game works is to open up unprotected maps and read their triggers etc. (that's how i did it, i didn't even know about this)

Or if that doesn't help a good way to get into the rythym of creating triggers than go and learn java/c++ even the basics (first few chapters) will make you so much more enlightened to this process

If you're new to mapmaking I suggest you to fumble around a bit before you start making an acual map.
You know, fumble with the object editor, make some triggers and see if you can get them to work, terrain a bit.

Let the game begin...
My suggestion is to make a simple td map from scratch. It's easy, it's basic and it's a real good start even for being the first time you make a map. You get the knowledge to spawn mobs at points, change damage, model file and size of units and so on. Also if you get stuck somewhere, check out how someone else has done in he's map and learn from him. That's what I did and it wasn't to hard really.
Anyway good luck and have fun.

Oh man, I shot Marvin in the face.
WarChasers. That's how I started. I wanted to make a hero that looked like the morphed DemonHunter.:)

well the way that i started was simply to start with an new map... maximum the size, and deal it up in alot of rooms, the just make an map in each of them, hero arena, duel, aos, ect. ect... just fumple around with the triggers and all the options in WE

what I did to learn the basics is create a very simple (boring to play but great to learn the basics) hero deathmatch arena

basicly you would pick a hero from a "hero arena" then that hero is moved to another place where there are shops and your able to repick within some time level, then you move to the main battle area where you fight, and each time someone kills someone, the one that died would drop 1 gold coin for each death, so if he had died 3 times he would drop 3 gold, and I had a killboard list and when someone got 30 kills he won and all other lost etc etc

very very basic idea but I was able to play around alot with triggers on it and I even made several custom hero's and hero skills, triggered abilitys for that map to get a feel for that

as I said very basic and boring map to play but awsome for my learning curve

And dont be afraid to post any questions here, we all have "this :banghead:" moment when making maps :p just make sure you try as hard as you can and post what you have so far and not let the people here do all the work for you :)

Cheers and I wish you the best of luck

Rofl the first map i started making was WOW - Karazhan lol... which was about a month ago o.o the very first map! a few days later i was about to finish it, and i got bored so i abandoned it. The next map i made was blinkmania.... which kinda didnt turn out good cause all the other tag games were cooler.T_T Then i made a farming game (last week), but never finished it... too much triggering and now m making som random map :D


GL to u buddy and welcome to the world of the confusing WE! :D

P.S, if u dont want to make a map like building games (Melee maps) then go in trigger editor and delete the trigger :D then when u set

start locations, it wont make town halls, necropolis, stronghold etc.

hey gofd. welcome to the forums XD

a simple map could take a week depending on what your trying to do and how fast you learn the functions.

    they did not winterize any of the plants and they froze
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    That is such a Texas thing to say lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
