Roleplaying Map

I want to make a roleplaying map where up to four players choose their hero from a hero selection pool (i need help with that) the only problem is, i cant start the game where you dont start out with a town hall and 5 workers. (also need help) and maybe some triggered events that spawn a few creeps to attack my little zoo (its my map, it can be of whatever i want :D) so the hero gets exp. another thing, how do you make the heros level 5 creep limit off?

Edit: I iz noob at this compared to you guys
I would recommend joining a RPG team, or choosing a less... extensive... game.

To start a game without the townhall:
Go to trigger editor, go to Initiation folder, and delete the melee game setup trigger.

To spawn creeps:
Every X seconds
Create X amount of Y unit, for Neutral Hostile.
Order (newly created unit) to walk/attack to unit(zoo).

To make creeps levels higher:
Go to object editor and go to level and hold shift and click on the level variable.
to remove the starting units at the start of game go to trigger editor > Initialization > Melee Initialization and remove every action in it

for creep spawning I suggest you using loops and array rect/region variables since that the safest system as far as I know

first set all your spawning rects/regions in a array in map init

set spawn_point[1] = first region
set spawn_point[2] = second region
set spawn_point[3] = third region
set spawn_point[...] = other regions

then in another trigger

e: every x seconds of game time
a: For each [Integer A] from 1 to (number of regions you have)
          set spawn_region[Integer A] = spawn_point[Integer A]
          create x footman for Player X at spawn_region[Integer A]
          set attacking_point = (some region where you want your unit to move)
          order last created unit to attack move to attacking_point
          custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_attacking_point)

   custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_spawn_region[1])
   custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_spawn_region[2])
   custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_spawn_region[3])
   custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_spawn_region[...])

since I'm a bad JASSer I haven't used the loop to remove locations in custom script xD
I think this is leakless but I might be wrong (it leaks only once at the very start of the map where you set the regions in spawn_point variable) and this hasn't been tested, but it should look something like that

EDIT: Fabioz, you fast :p
well thanks for answering, but by creeps i meant hero level, i cant get it to level after the hero reaches 5.
he means that hero can't get exp from creeps after he reaches level 5
I think its done in gameplay constants under hero XP gain stuff

EDIT: max hero level cap is also done in gameplay constants
if he can't get past level 5 on creeps, something's wrong :S
there's nothing you should need to change to do that.
all custom games are like that... 5 is max on creeps. then you have to level off computers or other players
I didn't understand you meant neutral(hostile) creeps.
Here's how to fix it:
Go to gameplay constatnts.
Find the field saying "Hero XP Gain - Creep Reduction Table"
Here's the percentage of XP gained from creeps per level.
as you can see the 5th number is 0 meaning 0% xp gained.
Just change these numbers and you will be fine.
now how do i make the person start out as a wisp that picks a hero out of a few in the corner?

    See how we like that.

    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example:

    I will have to get used to this.

    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...

    I'm not so sure, there's still a lot of Thursday left for it to become unhappy.
