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

2.00 version little inbalanced the windwalk in so small map not very good
Version 1.24 - almost perfect just need to dell drop lighting bug(bug with suicide rune sometimes and remove the item walls at will) and its all no need to trying the invent new items and runes just fix its all that I beg and I think many will agree with me.

  • jonas jonas:
    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
  • Varine Varine:
    I posted a thing here a while ago about my failures if it makes you feel better to hear about other people failing. Drugs and whatnot, I had a lot more fun than was healthy. I'm still a failure, but very few of us actually get to be the self made billionaire. Luck is the only thing that will take you as far as already having money a lot of the time, and the easiest way to get catch that is with a very wide net and the willingness to let other things loose.

  • jonas jonas:
    Eh. Don't define success as being a billionaire or even millionaire. Success is about overcoming your personal challenges. And if you can get to a place in life where you can love yourself, that is winning it big time
  • jonas jonas:
    Being a billionaire probably sucks, you can't go out in public like a random person anymore and you always need a bunch of big guys following you around discreetly
  • jonas jonas:
    And you'll never know if anyone you know really likes you or is just seeing you as a big money sack
  • jonas jonas:
    Most of the best fun I've ever head was with a group of friends eating pizza or drinking a good 10$ bottle of wine, when I had maybe 100$ on my account. Or the time when I was so broke, my friends visited me with bags of ingredients and I cooked for us, because I didn't have money to buy ingredients anymore
