Mush v0.42 beta [updated]

Mush
a Castle Fight like map

v0.47 beta *UPDATED*

Worked on this map for a couple of weeks. It's a bit like Castle Fight and I would like to have some feedback on it. Its pretty stable and balanced if I say so myself, so check it out!

Gameplay
The objective of the map is to destroy the other teams castle, by doing so you win the game. The map is played 2vs2, 3vs3, 4vs4 or 5vs5. There is the ability to add computer players (put a computer in an empty player slot).

The unit you control in the map is your builder, which can build specific buildings depending on which race you picked. These buildings auto spawn units that fight their way to the enemy castle. Only thing for you to do is to choose which buildings to build, use items from your castle, and use your rescue strike properly.​

Features
- 9 playable races
- More than 64 unique units fighting on land, sea and air
- One legendary unit per race
- Computer AI (add computer slots)
- Randomizeable landscape
- Weather effect (able to turn off)​

Different than CF?
Mush uses three lanes to battle, one being a water lane for boats and air units only, giving the map a unique tweak. Also has different units with different abilities than CF. More fast paced action!​

i am sorry but if that is the only difference to castle fight i doubt you will get much resonance for this project.

why dont you try to add in some more special features?
like having the player get an avatar which can defend his base but cannot enter the lanes?
or making all fighting units into heroes which can level up and gain new abilitys?

i can imagine how hard you were working on the project but if this is nothing more then castle fight with an additional lane but less worked out design results in fail.

It was rather entertaining, despite it bearing many similarities to Castle Fight.

However, I do see new races. That's always good.
The sea lane is rather interesting. However, I don't understand how a Human/High Elf Battle Ship managed to move on land. Plus it was floating.

Also, the single super unit thing is quite cool. Although its really boring that they do not have any awesome skills xD Some examples may be:
Lich Lord: Arctic Nova
Causes a massive shard of Ice to fall from the sky, dealing insane damage to an AoE and freezing random units. Other hit units are slowed (slow affects allies).

They may possibly use those awesome skills when attacking the Castle. It would be awesome :)

Mush is quite a cool idea IMO. To have a resource gotten by using other resources is a real cool idea.

Finally, the game gets laggy after a while 20 minutes or so. Please check the map for Memory Leaks and such.

Last suggestion:
Move trained units to the Rally point of the training building (if the rally point is too far, just move it 100 range or so towards the Rally Point). This could be helpful when you accidentally built a building wrongly and trained units got stuck.

The map has other diffences, such as a super unit each race can build. Just put the text down a bit fast so didnt name all the differences.

Very useful tips! Thanks, will work on them. Giving the super units specials was my plan, but havent worked it out yet.

About the Battle Ship thing, it's an air ship, so its suppose to float :p

Will check out if a rally point thing is possible.

Anyway, I checked the Rally point in-game. The unit will spawn at the rally point if its close to the building. So its ok :)

Anyway, really fun game. Playing it with my brother ATM.

EDIT: Ok. Had another game with him after dinner. I spammed 12 Phoenix Roosts and used Quad Damage = Instant Ownage xD
30 Minute game, but some bugs I noticed:
Its possible to choke the sea lane by building a line of harbours on the shallow water. This makes the boats stuck there and prevent allies from passing through.

Cool, thanks for playing the game, I'm glad you like it :)

Will try to fix that bug, currently working on the legendary (super) unit abilities and minor bugs I found.

Submit your map here instead of uploading to a file-sharing site.

Not only will your map appear on the WET site, but it's also more convenient to download (no waiting and other problems).

Cheers!

Had problems with map size on the forum, but this is a great alternative :)

I discovered imbaness.

Check out the replay of pure epicness. Please create a folder in your maps folder called "Member's Projects" and put the public version there to test :) You'll experience awesome lag at 30+ minutes xD

EDIT: Added replay.

Oh my god, that replay showed me a lot, the map I uploaded is severly bugged, looks like no units are retrained. Think the protection of the map deleted all triggers. Gonna upload a new version with some fixes and which is way better playable than that version.

About the lag, viewing the replay I noticed a little bit of lag, but not much. Also got most of my triggers (especially periodic ones) with calls to clean up variables.

Gonna try to get an update on the map tonight!

I'm not sur if you noticed, but some of the units seemed to be moving back to base in the replay. This caused a massive amount of units to be stuck there.

Anyway, will test out the new version.

Aye, thats not suppose to happen, but the version you played (the replay version) was severly bugged, looked like a lot of triggers were removed when converting the map to a protected version.

Got that fixed now :)
