Monstrous Map Idea

So, I'm semi-new to map editing. I can pull off a so-so set of triggers, play around with camera angles and such, and do a pretty good custom ability, but compared to you guys I'm probably craptastical.

Anyway: Ever since I first poked around the world editor, the fact the you can change the scaling for the models has offered itself to me as something we could have fun toying with. So, for the elementary-school godzilla fan in us all ( :p ) how about a Monster Wars map?

Imagine, gigantic heroes on both sides of a map. Something in the vein of AoS, in that it has attacking computer creeps and heroes who are user-controlled. But in the middle of the map, instead of the usual lanes, a destructible city, complete with it's own neutral 'defender' creeps?

So what you have is scaled up heroes at monstrous size battling their way through a city that they can hack to tiny little bits. And, of course, you'd get to watch your creeps fight neutral creeps before they fight the other team's creeps. Silly, but do-able. Probably just take down some towers and give them to the neutral party.

But just scaling up the heroes and adding a city middle sounds kinda lame, right? So I'm trying to figure out whether you could use some kind of altered pathing/immolation ripoff to allow the heroes to stomp on creeps, neutral and allied alike, and crush buildings. Obviously, not insta-death, but it'd be fun to see a monstrous Crypt-lord hero go crawling through a city, knocking over houses as he goes to chase down the enemy hero, little spider creeps slaughtering footmen as they run through the city. That little extra blow-stuff up touch.

A) Is this even possible?

B) would it be cool?

thanks

You could maybe make the buildings stompable by using trigger regions to destory the buildings?

I don't think immolation would be the right thing for the effect you're after, as it won't be based on actually stepping on a building.

Replace the pathing models for stompable buildings with circle of power models. Then you can walk in, and destroy with a region.

Alternatively, make heros flying and make unpathable areas unflyable too. There are unflyable pathing maps on a bunch of city buildings that look like sandcastles.

Sounds rocking. I wonder, though, why have creeps? Godzilla never had minions. (did he?)

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.

    I found out you can't delete nor hide redirect links to existing threads. It will just stay there. I have no choice now but to start moving thread redirects to News Archive.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    That is not the way that it works for me I can delete redirects you just have to hit refresh sometimes big deletes will take a while as long as moves\
  • The Helper The Helper:
    You don't have to do that you can just leave stuff there in headline news for up to a year it was already down to like 8 months there is no rush.
