You should really change your version numbering system.


... it's ugly.

... like you.

I'm still watching this project. I've just been waiting for you to release a stable version I can play over battle.net

I think this one is finally at last, stable. Except for me forgetting to remove the food cost off the dummy segments, but don't worry about that.

Edit.

I see what you mean. I just had to update it again.

Update: v2.00

Hopefully this is completely void of any major bugs, and all it's synonyms. So have fun :p!

P.S. I've also began work on a different map, although that won't get far with Kenny's absence.

Updated thread

It is more detailed, and has all the information I know on the map background, and proof I didn't steal this map... also how else would I have worked on it if I stole it :p Like hell was I going to build the map from scratch, or work with obfuscated code, or using the Single Timer map.

_________________________________________________

I am also working on the map terrain.

Pudge Wars Advanced - Terrain WIP #1 - Beach/Ruins/Thing Themed (24/09/2010):

I didn't know how to terrain the map, so I thought why not just make it look like a beach, beach = fun :grin:

Here it is SO far with in-game camera view. It kind of looks crap O_O, and I yes I already know of the ugly water on the cliff. I also know I am using Blizzard cliffs. But anyways, gameplay is more important? :thumbs_up:

Adding to the terrain are random scenery events (like I mentioned), I've only added one simple but working concept, Seagulls.

Seagulls will randomly spawn from any map edge and travel to the other, you will hear water waves and seagull cries as they pass. They won't affect gameplay at all. You can test it in the map attached (uses vJass).

Another idea I had was to have the sun move by, and you could see the sun in the water as it moved, but the water is too shallow to show properly? And I couldn't get any good reflection effects out of it :( So that's a failed experiment.

Yet another idea was to have a random beachball be thrown around the arena, just for another fun factor idea. Haven't gotten around to that yet.

Any ideas for the scenery events and terrain are welcome.



Edit.

I think I might even remove the cliffs and start the terrain from scratch. Anyways, beach theme good/bad?

For some reason, the segments on the hooks are acting weird. If I have a long hook, more often than not, the head of the hook will have more segments than the rest. If you use the grappling hook then get hooked, the segments of the grappling hook begin to disappear.

Segment spacing is relative to Range, the shorter, the more segments created, and vice versa. I did this so less units were being created to lessen the lag people reported. It seems to be fine now, it lags a teeny bit with 12 Hooks active, but nothing as much as before.

Because of the spacing, the Meat Hook segments will sort of group together upon bouncing off something (it is like that isn't it?), and the later segments will be left behind.

As for the Grapple Hook, can you explain that more? If you are Hooked while Grappling, the hook dragging will take place before you travel along your grapple hook.

Yeah. The grapple hook does exactly that. The difference from this and previous versions is that the grapple hook's segments seem to disappear after it starts to retract/expand.

o_O, really? So they actually disappear? Can't even see? I always thought it worked fine?

Terrain looks freaking awesome.
Ahaha. I'm dumping that. I decided to remove the cliffs, here is the concept so far. I'm stuck as to what to put now.

Ignore the portals, I just placed them randomly.

I hope you realize what you've gotten into. Everyone will want a different version of the terrain for each release. :)

That's interesting, the land mass seems to be smaller than the sea mass (near the top).

I think you could have more of those tropical trees. Those have to be the best tree models Blizzard made in Warcraft III.

Maybe you could place more rocks and corals :D

Terrain remake -> Great way to mark the beginning of PWA 2.00+

Bad sign :thdown: <3

Well, I wanted more ocean than land, because I just love the water?

Well, those trees were actually made by Nasrudin I believe. Can be found in the Ultimate Terraining Map. They just looked cool and they are animated as well :thup:

Question: How should Phantom's Lance Split function?

Currently makes three miniture versions of Pudge that rotate around, they all can hook, each hook deals 100% damage. But the mini-versions die in about one hit (100 HP).

It's quite GG when you deal 3x damage. So I was perhaps thinking of increasing their HP and making only one hook work, or each hook deals 33.33% damage instead of 100% because hitting a target is easy when you have three hooks.

Thoughts?

Hey Listen!!

this :)

and maybe limit the amount of hooks per mini pudge


PS: -.- the helper are kidding with me? deleted my post lol?

I think something like 50% is better, since it would cripple your damage way too much if you only manage to hit one enemy.

Plus, its would be ridiculously scary to have 3 enemies homing at you :p

Kenny's Meat Hook will ignore a target already hooked if Headshot is disabled, so perhaps I should just make it search another target?

What you mean? Currently the Meat Hook cooldown is 3.5, there is 3 of them, so you can fire 9 maximum (considering enemies are in short-range) within 3.5 seconds, I guess you're right. But I thought low HP and something like Tossing or a Land Mine would be effective to counter them.

I think something like 50% is better, since it would cripple your damage way too much if you only manage to hit one enemy.
Also the chance of only one hook hitting is rather low. It's a Level 5 ability with a 90 second cooldown, so it's got to have some effect. But it's already powerful because of it's 25% Doppelwalk :D Hmm...... but 150% damage seems alright to me, a bit of bonus damage :D

    You would probably have to take a loan to get the Rice cert it is like 14l
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I was hoping you were going to say you wanted to be a cook and wished to open up a Food Truck there are so many opportunities for that here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    you can only open the bar if you sell food and a food truck in the parking lot counts
  • The Helper The Helper:
    here in houston
  • The Helper The Helper:
    most bars are struggling to build food prep and even some I know are doing there own food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!
