Testing for a fun little map

I will have a fun little map ready to test this evening. Anyone on Azeroth is welcome to help out. Players can be as many as twelve, and I don't have that many irl friends that play war3.

Post here if you are interested. If people care, I'll give instructions for meeting up in a channel.

I should give information about the theme: it's more like pass the bomb than anything else, but it's two teams rather than ffa, and it should be more strategic (positioning, cornering) and less reflex-y.

I tried to add a loading screen and found that targa (.tga) files are not compressed at all. A 50k jpd costs 3 megs if it's a tga...seems unlikely that I'll use one. Is there any way around this?

oh, duh, right.

It looks like for a really nice-looking loading screen, I'll need to spend maybe 150 or 200 k. A landscape could get away with less, but I just took a screenshot from WE.

I am thinking about ways to expand this fun little map. The working title for an expanded version is now 'Wendigo Olympics.'

The current game I have made is a keep-away game: two teams, one ball. You clap to steal the ball from the enemy carrier. Everyone but the carrier can clap; the carrier has a 'throw the ball' ability that he can use to pass it to allies or enemies. Everyone has a slow-poison ability on a 500-range attack, just to make things more confusing. Clap radius is 250, throw range is 1100. Everyone can blink (800 range) but the guy with the ball can only blink 500. First team to hold the ball for a total of 150 seconds wins. The game throws a win-point up on the multiboard, and it starts again.

    I have a GIF though

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?

    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
