Okay, it's nowhere near done, I've figured out recently, but I would like to see people flesh out it's problems and mistakes. I realize that there are already some mistakes and such, but if you find something else that I don't post, or you know how to fix it, I would appreciate it. Also, any suggestions would be nice.

Problems Already Known:
-Aquadios, the Wave Former, is incomplete. Please don't pick him as a builder unless you're goofing off, because I haven't worked on his towers yet.
-Both Gadgeteer and Magmus have towers that were based on unit models before I knew I had to make them towers and convert them into unit models. I'm re-making ALL of them to be towers. :\
-The Leaderboard doesn't display creeps on map currently, and doesn't display Lives correctly. That's still being worked out, but if anyone knows how to remedy this problem, I would appreciate it.
-The Creeps and Bosses are not in the right order. I just send them out in the order that they appeared on the Unit palette. Sorry, but if anyone knows what a good order to send them out in would be, I would appreciate it!
-The auras don't work that appear on the "Egg", or non-attack, towers yet. I'd like it if anyone knew how to make the tower's auras affect the other, surrounding towers.
-Some towers can be build on the path. Please don't abuse this, I'm currently making them into towers, so they can only be built on the grass.
-There are certain codes for the testers to use to more efficiently flesh out the game. Some are most certainly bugged and will be removed when I release the game, but please note that you can use them if you want to (for testing purposes).

Suggested Testing:
-Test out how Magmus and Gadgeteer's towers do damage and how their abilities work. If they are imba, op, or too weak, tell me!
-If you see something that might look better visually or gameplay wise, suggest it!
-See if the gold count is enough, and if 25 lives is enough, or too much.
-Make any suggestions!

Would Appreciate:
-A Serpahim model. I want it to be angelic, as its name implies. The Hawk might just be a placeholder for now. I would put you in credits.
-Catching any glitches/bugs I missed. If I really didn't know them, I'll put you in credits on the site.
-When I release the v1.00, which will be after I feel it is set-up and ready to be tested in Custom Games on WC3, I would appreciate a rating and a review on the game. If it's a well-written review, I'll add it to the site. :D

Site: http://www.freewebs.com/scourgetd/

(I realize it's a free site, and still not very organized, but it's just going to be for things like updates, links to downloads, and information on it, nothing big).

Codes:
-flying (Spawns 5 Gargoyles at each Spawn; they don't progress correctly and will run amuck)
-land (Spawns 5 Acolytes at each Spawn; they should progress correctly, but it's not guaranteed)
-over9000 (adds 9001 gold to the typing player; is obviously just for goofing off/tower testing purposes, and will certainly ruin a serious test)

Helpful Hints:
-The Chain Lightning on the Seraphim is really sweet, but it's not too strong, so if you want to make it strong, put a few in one spot. It'll decimate flying forces. The Bash on the Olympian is still being toyed with.
-If you're low on gold to spend against flying units (considering there's only two levels of them so far), so you can't place several in one spot, then go for Magmus. The Phoenix has Phoenix Fire, which adds pretty much permanent Immolation and burns units. It's sweet as hell, but the cooldown on the Phoenix's attacks are 2.88, compared to the Seraphim's 1.00, so be wary. Another good aspect is the other Ultimate Tower's splash damage.
-If you're looking for balance, go for Aquadios when he's ready. He'll sport moderate damage with moderate speed, so you don't have to choose. Aquadios will have a Poison and Slowing tower, so where your Slow will not hit, Poison will take over.

Coming Soon:
-Zzulix The Chaotic: A Chaos Tower builder, who hits both land and air creeps. His Ultimate Towers will do Bash, and Damage over Time.
-Gol'Terra, the Earth Maker: An Earth Tower builder, who hits only land creeps. His Ultimate Towers do Poison and Chain damage.
-Whirlwind the Flier: An Air Tower builder, who hits only air creeps. His Ultimate Towers do Splash and Slowing.
-Seraf of the Light:A Light Tower builder, who hits both land and air creeps. Her Ultimate Towers will do Bash, and Damage over Time.

Oh man, I realized two problems. Re-download it when I edit this post saying that I've fixed the map. Give me a minute..

EDIT: Fixed. Go ahead and do it now.

DOUBLE EDIT: The creeps don't have a gold bounty, yet, that's why the -over9000 code is in it. I don't want to assign values to creeps if I don't know the best order they would go in, but I'll go look into it now.. :\

TRIPLE EDIT: I devised a way to test the strength of the creeps and how to place them. I made a normal sized map, and placed one of each creep type, and one of each boss type, spaced out enough so that they wouldn't interfere, turned all of their movement and attacks off, and then placed one of the same type of tower next to each one. I then had a trigger so that the camera panned to a unit when it died, and so I just wrote down the order in which they died. I must say, I had it all backwards! Order (in which they died, first on top):

-Banshee
-Necromancer
-Acolyte
-Gargoyle
-Ghoul
-Meat Tank
-Frost Wyrm
-Crypt Fiend
-Obsidian Statue
-Abomination
-Lich
-Dreadlord
-Crypt Lord
-Death Knight

I'll get to work on adding gold bounties to the creeps and putting them in order right away! The map I used to test is in an attachment. If you see any errors in the way I did it, please point it out.

QUADRUPLE EDIT: I'm a bit tired, since it's 6:05 AM here (and I didn't sleep at all during the night), so I'm gonna go relax a bit. I'll likely fall asleep, and won't be on until about 3-5 PM PST (-8 GMT). Plus, my new Game Informer came in a couple of days ago, and I haven't had the time to read it. So, I'm off to relax and maybe fall asleep. If I don't fall asleep, then I'll be back somewhat soon.

WHATEVER-THE-MULTIPLE-OF-FIVE-IS EDIT: Hey, I'm back. I've put the creeps in order, and should be adding the gold bounty. I'll change the map to the new, updated version when I finish adding the gold bounty. :D

General chit-chat
Help Users
  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I read in the PC Gamer review that it was not much of an update to the game like just a re-release
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's a good remaster. They did not want to change the game much because there are still many die-hard players out there that wouldn't like it to be a new game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They've said they are open to adding new content in the future, but wanted to get what's there correct first. As it is, for what you get the $40 asking price is a bit steep.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah that is a high price think I am going to wait a minute and see if it goes down some.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Looking forward to doing some dungeon grinding again though.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still 101 bots on the site constantly
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    my bots got out of their cage? oh no
  • The Helper The Helper:
    these bots are from russia, china and asia they are less than they were but more than they need to be I have no idea why they hover here
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Probably because of my Headline News
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Facebook is getting fucked right now lol
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I learned one thing from the Facebook outage - BGP - I am sure Ghan is an expert in it but I did not know what the name of it was I knew there was something like that there though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    What is up Tom?
  • jonas jonas:
    We once considered doing a project on BGP looking for problems in the implementations. But we didn't get sufficient interest and Tony Li was mean to us so we said whatever
  • Varine Varine:
    hello, peeps. I got most of my computer back up to Idaho so I have passwords again after that nightmare of like 4 months
  • Varine Varine:
    We're all trying to get time off now, but holy shit. I did not expect it to be that busy. Every day was a historical record, and every week was a total sales record for like all of summer. My pay is going to almost double next summer, which makes cooking finally a viable career, I might actually afford to change industries soon!
  • Varine Varine:
    We had people ask if there was anything we could do about the fucking sun. There's like 30 inside tables and every outside table has a sunbrella thing.
  • Varine Varine:
    No, I'm sorry, I cannot move the sun and the umbrella doesn't go 90 degrees sideways. They unfortunately had to deal with a sunset across mountains and a lake, we can only imagine the horror they had to undergo by visiting our restaurant
  • Varine Varine:
    Well, they do, but they're big and blow away and a 10 foot runaway umbrella is a much bigger problem than some cunt with the sun sorta in her eyes
  • The Helper The Helper:
    What is up Varine? Good to see you buddy! Too bad you are not in Houston I have a friend that needs Cooking staff like desperately remember if you ever want to get a different landscape, not sunsets over mountains and a lake Houston has opportunity!
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Nice to see Varine back in action.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Welcome back Varine!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    can someone answer a question in the World Editor Help forum?
  • jonas jonas:
    ok
  • The Helper The Helper:
    thank you jonas!
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll probably be here through next summer at least, I get paid decent at the moment and I expect it to go up significantly next year. Plus I'm on contract through the end of the year
