Warcraft 3 Melee Map : R/Wc3

Tutorial By Killfest2Here are two tutorials I made on the art of making a great melee map. As many people are making very shotty melee maps & playing them on Bnet, this should help all those people increase their map quality and decrease the comments lượt thích "this bản đồ is shit" etc.Note: These tutorials were designed for Maps"n"Mods (maps.worldofwar.net), so some points may be a little out-of-whack, especially about the Submission, but still handy if people ever submit their maps there, which I hope will be the case.TUTORIAL I: Killfest2"s Ten Tips lớn Make Your Maps Look Professional (Or at least not Noobish)1.Unguarded TavernWe all want our maps khổng lồ follow on from the Ladder maps, right? and one prerequisite for a Ladder maps is that it must have an unguarded Tavern. This just doesn’t mean it must be unguarded around the immediate area of Tavern, but the path from any Start Position(s) that you intend to have access for that Tavern should also be không lấy phí of creeps.2.BalanceAnybody who has played any RTS trò chơi should realise that it’s only fair that all players should have access to lớn all things equally. This extends from build space in their base khổng lồ access to Neutral Buildings lớn gold in the Start Mines – the danh sách goes on an on. One way to lớn alleviate this problem is lớn make a maps symmetrical, however as long as all players are given equal access to everything, things should be fine and dandy.3.Appropriate Creep PathThere is no point in having to lớn fight a dragon & a bunch of powerful ogres first, right? Make it so that there are green or weak brown creeps near the base areas so that players can cấp độ up before taking on the monstrosities that lie in the middle of the map.4.TilesetI’ve seen people use Hydras in Ashenvale, và Infernals in Northrend – make sure you don’t try khổng lồ mesh two totally different tilesets, or things look out of place like white as a funeral. This also applies for doodads, & also the ‘Modify Tileset’ feature – common sense fixes most problems.5.Attractive Name & DescriptionGenerally, a name lượt thích ‘Hilltop Defence’ or ‘Melee’ will attract less attention then ‘The Star of Kalimdor’, just because of the originality of the name. This also is applicable in your mô tả tìm kiếm too – a mysterious or intriguing description will often create interest in a maps because it’s the first impression given lớn a player of a certain map.6.Item DropsThis same point in my previous tutorial discussed the advanced ideas of cống phẩm drops; however, to lớn be able to lớn implement them, you have to địa chỉ them in the first place – I’ve seen numerous maps that have just left them out entirely, either by mistake or they just didn’t realise you did that.7.Keep it PureIf there is one thing that screams ‘Noob’ t you, it’s when people make the maps non-melee, either by placing player units other than the Start Positions, adding triggers, or editing units – just don’t vì chưng it, or you’ll over up with a rating below 2.00 most of the time, unless you re-submit it as Altered Melee.8.ResourcesAs basic as it sounds, it’s amazing how many maps either don’t put enough gold or wood to last the whole duration of the game, or don’t even have it at all. I remember 2 maps in the previous 3 updates – one didn’t have gold, và the other had no wood – that’s an auto 1/5 from most voters.9.VariationA bản đồ with no variation is a bản đồ doomed for failure – unless you are trying lớn make a new style of play (which is hard to do, especially as a new maps maker), having nothing going for your maps is a bad idea – provide some neutral buildings khổng lồ fight over, some alternate paths khổng lồ reach places, maybe even a variation in travel (eg. Waygates, Goblin Laboratories , Goblin Shipyards etc.).10.SubmissionA map isn’t going to lớn get downloaded if you don’t describe the maps in your submission – here is a list of things khổng lồ do and not to vị in your submission:-DO:oInclude a minimapoProvide a mô tả tìm kiếm of the basic ideas incorporated in your mapoHighlight appropriate team formats for your mapoSay anything that is chất lượng about your bản đồ which may encourage downloadsoProof-read your submission for grammar mistakesDON’T:oSay it’s your first maps in the hope you will receive sympathy in voting/commentsoBe ‘up yourself’ in your map - eg. Don’t say ‘Best maps ever’ or something like thatoNot provide a mô tả tìm kiếm at alloHighlight the bad things in your mapoSay ‘all comments/recommendations please send to…’ – no-one will botherTUTORIAL II: Killfest2’s Ten Essential (But Often Overlooked)Tips For Perfecting Melee Maps1.Gameplay FirstThis is a big one, which seems to lớn be overlooked by many – melee maps are designed lớn play, not to lớn look at – yes, a bản đồ that is aesthetically pleasing is always good, however you should never compromise chơi game simply for aesthetics.2.Balanced Start PositionsI wish I had a dollar for each time I’ve seen unequal start positions in a melee map, yet it’s so easy lớn avoid – make sure that there is close lớn equal space for build, that the same gold is in each mine, each base is as easy khổng lồ defend as another, and that’s about it, however it’s amazing that these things aren’t equal in many maps.3.Creeps at Start PositionsAdd creeps khổng lồ all start positions, so nobody gets a miễn phí expansion, as this ruins balance – just place the creeps close to the start positions, and the mặc định Melee Initialisation trigger will automatically remove them for you if that space is being occupied.4.Tree WallsTry khổng lồ avoid using trees as walls, especially near bases, as people will eventually cut their cover away, and this is very annoying when enemies can attack you from 360 degrees – use cliffs or water, as they have the same effect, except that they are permanent, unlike tree walls, khổng lồ prevent certain access points to lớn areas.5.Creep Acquisition RangeDon’t forget to lớn turn your creeps on to lớn ‘camp’ mode – this avoids creeps running in & killing your peasants/peons etc. When you are just starting, and this avoids early drop-outs, và low ratings when people come back & complain about the bản đồ being a failure.6.Item DropsThis is essential for good balance – there is no good in giving a green creep camp a drop of a màn chơi 5 item, when a brown or even red drops a lower màn chơi – here as some hints:-Use vật phẩm tables & the colour-code for the camps to lớn determine thắng lợi strength và value (if you have TFT) -Make green camps drop only 1 item, but make brown & red camps drop 2 or 3-Use appropriate items eg. Make a Golem drop a Stone Token etc.-Always have at least one set of creeps designated to drop tomes-Try to lớn avoid having one creature drop 2 or 3 items – maybe have 2 or 3 of the creatures drop 1 tác phẩm each, so people fight lớn the end, instead of killing one creep và running away with the items-Have a good balance of Power-Ups, Charged and Permanent items, so you don’t end up with super-strong heroes, or so many Spawned creatures on the bản đồ at once.-But above all, remember balance is they key, & always use common sense when assigning công trình drops – that rules out most major problems7. Environmental DoodadsYes, your terrain may be Blizzard-quality, but it is not capped off until you địa chỉ some well-placed, relevant doodads. Maybe some treasure around a Goblin Merchant, or some cages near dangerous creeps; however, misplaced doodads can wreck a map – some examples of this are Torches used in snowy tilesets, cages in the middle of no-where - again, common sense (and a bit of thinking) is what’s required for success with these.8.Natural-Looking is BestWherever possible, make your terrain look as natural as possible (make sure you remember Point 1, though) – for instance, adding grassy dirt around your worn dirt-path is always a good thing, & a bit of rough dirt here and there enhance on this again – this is only one example of the terrain feature in the World Editor, there are many more designs which look great, however make sure you don’t go over the top; good terrain combined with good doodads (read Point 7) create a very aesthetically-pleasing map, & this is a bonus for everyone.9.PathingThis a major problem for many new map-makers – always check the pathing before submitting any map – make sure all areas are accessible the way you would like them; make sure all of your pathing blockers have no holes in them; make sure paths are wide enough lớn hold all the units you’ll need in that area. There are two ways to check out the pathing in your map: a) thử nghiệm it fully with all units (easily the preferred option) or b) use the pathing feature in the World Editor (activated/deactivated by pressing ‘P’) - this only shows degrees of pathing, và is only recommended if you don’t have the time to kiểm tra it fully.10.The Fun FactorHey, isn’t that what the game is all about – having fun? Make sure you enjoy making and testing your map, và make sure the thiết kế is too difficult so people don’t spend ten minutes learning the layout – use basic ‘pointers’ such as:-Colour-code the pairs of waygates, lớn enable easy identification of its destination-Use paths as subtle hints on basic directions khổng lồ major features (shops, expansions, other bases etc.)-Try to lớn keep things flowing – avoid making things dart back & forth; instead have them flowing in circles, so it is easy to navigate và negotiateBut still see that your maps looks natural, và has a creative feel lớn it.
