Inspired by both Luth's Battle of the Stars and the flash (& song) "The Ultimate Showdown."

Watch to understand what I am about to say:
hijacked link removed
Note to all viewers: It's a song, made in flash, in rap format. You may not like it, but I think it's pretty funny.

Ok, back to the actual map:

The Ultimate Showdown

Basically, like Luth's Battle of the Stars, it's going to have most (if not all) of the characters in the song (and possibly more), fighting in a deathmatch type brawl.

Heroes:
The current hero list stands at:

-Godzilla (Abilities Concieved)
-Batman (Abilities Concieved)
-Shaquille O'Neal (Abilities Concieved)
-Aaron Carter (Abilities Concieved)
-Abraham Lincoln
-Optimus Prime (Pending)
-Jackie Chan
-Indiana Jones
-Care Bear
-Mario
-Sonic
-Dr. Brown (Back to the Future) (Pending - Might be replaced by HARRY POTTER)
-R2-D2
-Santa Claus
-Gandalf the Grey/White (Combined)
-Black Knight
-Benito Mussilini
-Blue Meanie
-Cowboy Curtis
-Jambi the Genie
-Robocop
-Terminator
-Captain Kirk (With Spock as Summon)
-Darth Vader
-Lo Pan
-Superman
-Power Rangers
-Bill S. Preston
-Theodore Logan
-The Rock
-Doc Ock
-Hulk Hogan
-Pacman (Pending due to Model)
-Mr. Rogers
---
Each hero will have 6 abilities: 1 Innate Ability, 3 Regular Abilities, 1 "Pen"ultimate (1st Ultimate), 1 Ultimate.

Obviously, there are going to be a lot of heroes/abilities. Therefore, I'm going to need a couple of spellmakers to help me (Full credits and +rep, of course).
Squll2 has already agreed to help me on this map, but with 222 different abilities, I think it's just too much work for him.

FEATURES:
Of course, it isn't just going to be a plain old deathmatch brawl. It's going to feature lush and strategic terrain (Strong points and Weak Points), multiple game modes (I asked PurgeandFire to do those, if you see one of his threads), along with other gameplay factors such as:

-Random Spellcasters casting on the battlefield
-Hired Mercenaries
-Multiple Side Areas for Quests
-Neutral Hostile brawlers
-Chuck Norris as a boss
-Game Modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, King of the Hill, Juggernaut

How you can help:
With 222 abilities to be thought of, I can't possibly come up with abilties suiting all heroes. You may suggest abilties/gameplay factors for anything, but keep in mind, I want these spells not to be TOO difficult to make, but not TOO simple.

Of course, I'll need some help imputting the triggers and models.
I'll need:

-Importer (I can't import): Squll2, (_____)
-Spellmaker: Squll2, BANANAMAN, Cheddar
-Modeler: ______
-Trigger Master: Rheias, elmstfreddie (Part Time)

EDIT:
Benefits:
-Proper Credit in map, of course. (Ideas, Jobs)
-Beta Testing (Many Ideas, Jobs)
-+rep (Ideas, Jobs)
-Request of Hero in Map (Jobs)

PROGRESS
Will be continually updated.

Currently Working On: Polishing Terrain, Spells

I need:
-Spell Ideas for everyone but Shaq, Godzilla, and Batman.
-Hirable Unit Ideas (Must be known some of general public, i.e. Shinra Soldier, etc.)
-Models!!!
-Icons!!! But not as much as Models!!!


Suggestions, Comments, Questions, and Concerns are all appreciated. Flaming is also acceptable, though in small amounts.
---

Final Notes:
-Characters are copyright of their respective owners. People are copyright of themselves.
-The Max Hero level is 25, with their
--Innate Ability (Level 1 starting),
--Abilities (Up to level 6 each)
--Penultimate (Up to level 4)
--Ultimate (Up to level 3)
-This map is so far only an idea, I will post screenshots and other stuff that shows that work is getting done later.

and he crushed Batman's head in between his thighs

I'm already working on balance with all of the characters, so far, both Shaq, Batman, and Godzilla are equally balanced, stat and ability wise.

Go ahead on the Black Knight, but just remember, I might want to change it.

Email: [email protected]



>>Is Chuck Norris on that list?

Chuck Norris shall be a boss, for two reasons:
1. He's too powerful, it took 24 different characters at the same time to kill him.
2. People would say he's either: (If playing with) Too weak or (If playing against) Too strong.



>>Give credit to the orignal song creator, (band is) Lemon Demon.

Thanks, I know. I will, I just didn't include him because the band name is on the site I linked to.



>>how may i help with your map?]

Well, I might need another spell maker, but if you or anyone you know is a fairly good modeler, I still need one; there are absolutely no Doc Ock models on hiveworkshop, and the current Batman model is him on a Batmobile.

You can also give ability ideas for each of the characters. I need 6 for each, but you don't have to give them at the same time. See the first post for information about each of the abilities.

The Penultimate and the Ultimate will be sort of difficult, but the others, to me, seem not to hard for a good spellmaker.

I already made the hero, just give me the map with the spells, and I'll import the triggers, dummy units, and all that junk.

Well, I guess I will give a shot at triggering spells. I've had a bit of experience in that field. And here are a few ability ideas for these, since you need so many.

-Benito Mussilini
Hoo boy, Italian Class ftw. Next year World History would help that too. I could use a few Italian phrases.
~Il duce! (Means "The leader", Mussilini's followers would call him that. Probably would be some kind of brainwashing spell, like Charm)
~Communism
Mussilini believes in communism, and enforces these beliefs on his allies/enemies.
Unfortunately, I forgot what communism is, anyone help here? I just remember Mussilini was a communist.

-Darth Vader
BOTS has this hero, I actually made one of these myself. I think that Tichondrius' soundset works well with this one. I'll dredge up the triggers for this one if you want.
~Force Choke
Basically Pudge's Dismember, melee shackles for 3 seconds dealing 75/125/175 damage per second. The art is the hands from Soul Gem, and it plays Tichondrius' "Die Fool!" sound.
~Lightsaber Tactics
Raigor's Enchant Totem, a one-shot huge damage attack.
~Force Pull
Pulls the target to you from a range of 600/700/800/900/1000

-Mario
I do not play much Mario, but there are way too many ideas, a couple:
~Fireball
~Invisibility Cap
~POW Block
~Green/Red Shells
~Starman
~Super Mushroom
~1-Up

-Sonic
Hehehe, Sonic. Can't get enough Sonic. I requested Sonic on hiveworkshop a while ago, someone said he was going to make it.
~Homing Attack
~Magic Hands (Use it, encases an enemy in a little ball and puts it into your hands. Enemy is disabled and can't do anything. In the game it can be thrown, here I think it would just Shockwave it in front of you.)
~Spin Dash. I guess this would be charge up, then run hecka fast.

-Pacman
Might be a bit... scratch that... very difficult to concieve 6 abilities. Not much in Pacman to do. Ghosts, balls, walls, dots, cherries.
~Cherries -- One who touches the cherries becomes invincible and can eat up lesser enemies, restoring health. Lasts a very short while. Every 1 minute a new cherry pops up on the map, even if one already exists.
~Dot Line -- Pacman can trace the enemy using a trail of dots, and if Pacman's on the dots, he goes faster and restores health, removing the dots though.
~Ghosts -- Pacman befriends the ghosts and unleashes their fury on a target. They begin to follow it and deal damage. One way to ward them off is to outrun them, then have them find a new target.

I'm sure I can come up with these abilities, I'd be glad to start up trigger spells again. Let me know if I'm on the team.

I won't put you on the team per se, but you can keep on contributing spell ideas. I'll still give you credits if I use any of them in the map.

EDIT: Adding some stuff to the first post to show actual progress on the map.

The only thing I know about O'neal's ability is the Can of Shaq-fu ...
Abraham Lincoln would have an AK-47 and a Machete o_O
The Rock would be People's Elbow and The Rock Bottom and some other wrestling moves he has..
Also with Hulk Hogan, his wrestling moves..

Isn't 3CPO there too? He was destroyed by whatshisname (the guy with the robe in starwars [villian])

I will not be including O'Neal's Shaq-Fu, but his abilities are as follows:
Pass (Innate)
Sidestep (Ability 1)
Free Throw (Ability 2)
Rebound (Ability 3)
Half-Court Shot (Penultimate)
Slam Dunk (Ultimate)

Abraham Lincoln will have an ability where he toggles between a machine gun and a sword, giving him Ranged Fast, but Low Damage attacks, or Medium Melee High Damage attacks.

One of his abilities will be Polevault. His Ultimate will be Emancipation Proclamation.

The Rock and Hulk Hogan will have moves based on their profession, yes. Aaron Carter's abilities will be based off of the names of his songs.

(LOL, I was just checking Aaron Carter's Music, one of his songs is "That's How I Beat Shaq". Awesome.)

C3P0 will not be included because R2-D2 AND Darth Vader are already included. And the robed thing is a Jawa.

Chuck Norris is way to powerful to be a character, he will be a boss, as I stated before.

Gandalf the Grey should be a supporting hero, based on Lightning and Fire abilities. His ultimate should be a mass benefit.

Gandalf the White seems to be more geared towards an anti-mage and nuking powers, with a powerful global ultimate (Not Global Silence).

And I've never used Rexxar's Ability, but Batarang should slow only the target unit, not any units in between.
Thanks again, BANANAMAN.

I'd like it to be triggered, but if you can make it so it seems triggered (See the old Non-Triggered Hero Contest For Reference), that'd be great.


Actually, if you want to do some more, I'm including spellcasting units, which you might be able to help with.

I need:

A No-Target Rain of Fire which affects the Entire Map (50 waves, 100 missiles per wave, 150 damage, 20 damage for 5 seconds)
A No-Target Healing Spray which affects the Entire Map (Same as above, except no dmg/second, and damage=heal.)
A Single-Target Divine Shield, which lasts for 20 seconds.

The other two abilities he will have is a Anti-Magic Shield and a Auto-Life type thing, which I know how to make both (Thanks to Tinki3 for Second Chance in the first Spell Request Thread).
