Rush the Core
v. 0.0.4
[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVa7reeCIUI[/media]
Solo gameplay video of an upcoming custom map for Starcraft 2.
Please stop by at www.rushthecore.com to leave feedback and to have an impact on the game.
The game is best as a 4v4 multiplayer map inspired by the Warcraft 3 custom map X Hero Siege by Sogat.


Description: Teams A and B have to push their way to the center of the map and wipe out the bad guys base. In the way are three indestructible walls blocking your forces progressing until the proxy base at each wall is destroyed. However, each time a proxy is destroyed, the bad guys send out a stronger army. The first team to destroy the bad guys base wins the game. The game is against the other player and against the clock. It can be played with 1-8 players.

Story: (very rough) Zerg occupy a planet containing a powerful substance around its core. They have started to harvest it but don't understand it's power. The Terran and Protoss have been researching this substance and know how to utilize it. Over the course of the game, the zerg become stronger as they learn how to incorporate the substance with their army. Meanwhile the Terran and Protoss are eager to take over the planet and harvest the substance for themselves.

Teams: 3 Teams, 4 players in the first two teams playing against the third team which is ai. The first two teams are assisted by an ai on their own team which assist in protecting the base (relying on the base gives you less minerals and experience.
  • Team A starts in bottom-left corner
  • Team B starts in top-right corner
  • Team (the bad guys) start in the center

Units: Players have a hero unit along with a special barracks to create normal units. This map will involve more squad based combat than individual hero combat. The power of a squad will be equivalent to that of a Wc3 hero. Currently, the players will be playing as a marine army though the other races will be available later. Protoss will come second, last will be zerg. (more detail in Meet the Team)

Help out
I am actively looking for people to join my team and assist me on this map.
Go to www.rushthecore.com to find out more.

What this game really needs help with is balancing. It's hard to do that in the development cycle while I am still adding a lot of new features.

This game is very much open to new ideas. Nothing is really set in stone. As long as its not changing the game completely, it very well may be accepted.

You don't have to focus full-time though that would be fun for me, I want people that would want to create a polished map.

Please ask questions, offer suggestions (criticisms are fine, in fact they maybe really helpful at this time.

This is a multi-player game at its heart, it needs to be testing with multiple players.

It seems you set up your forum's mysql information incorrectly.

Also, be aware that most players are going to be put off by the fact that players in one team will have no way of actually being able to fight or otherwise make contact with the other team. You really should add another mechanic that allows the two teams to compete more directly, but it doesn't necessarily mean you need to change your current setup much.

What was the message you recieved, something about a driver error?

If so I havent noticed it in a little, I was persuing that with my host. It's a semi rare incident that just goes away after a short while. I'll try do something about it now. If not please tell me the error.

As far as direct player vs. player, that is something that I was planning once I got the system more complete. The easiest way would be to do it in a mini game type setting in the midst of the action which will have some type of effect on the normal game play. A cool way that would have to be properly balanced would be nydus worm type buildings that allow heroes to warp between sides. Another thought I had was that each hero would have a mirror image on the otherside of the map that they could activate. This would cause the hero that activated the spell to see the oponent heroes on his side of the map as ghostly figures while the other team would see him as a ghostly figure on their side.

Seems like a really really good game.
The Zergs are all frolicking under your feet and they're mining a great power has to destroy the feet which stand above them

Not Serious part: Just nuke it Problem solved no more Zergs probably no more power either...

    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.
