Snipers

This is a 4v4 map, Obviously from the name of the game, you snipe, but that would be to boring, so I added some twists.


==========
Buying feature
==========

In most games you go up to something and buy attack and such...oh joy, but in this game the buying feature is different, and rushers prevail in this game.

First each kill you get, you get one gold, and on the sides of the map, you see relics, los is NOT shown to them, so you will have to explore to find them. There is the animal's den shop area, and the village area. On a relic, you will see the price of it, for example: View the map for 20 seconds, gold cost 4 gold. Once you pick it up, you will lose 4 gold but gain los for 20 seconds to the map. But here is why rushing is the strategy, the relic will not respawn.

========
Level up
========

Every 3 kills you get plus five attack,10 hp, 1 speed, and 3 los. In sniping, there is one hit kills until you excess 100 hp. Because then, you're hp will be high enough not to die in one hit kills. Once you hit 25 kills, you will go into hero arcus. You're range will ALWAYS be high, so you can snipe from a distance, but you may not be always able to, because you will not have line of sight to the units.

========
How to win
========

There will be flags on each side of the team, since I don't think there is a trigger that will let you win for team kills, then the only way I can have you win is if you capture the enemys flag. But when you get the flag, your speed slows down 15-25%. So you can't base camp in an area, I'll add towers, and when u revive you can unlimited hp for 5 seconds.

I changed that, instead of capturing a flag, you need to receive 65 total kills. Player 1,2,3, and 4 are on a team, while 5,6,7,and 8 are on a team.
========
Screenshots
========

Most of these screenshots are inacurrate, as I have updated the map 100%.

This map has around 250+ triggers, which I know isn't much to most people, but it is quite a bit, considering it's a fighting map.

I hope you enjoy this idea, and any comments would be appreciated, thanks.

Hey buddy! Last time I saw you was at Canadian Clan Design, my old name was X_MOSS. This looks like a good map!

You can do this with Quest Vars. For a guide check my sig, but your idea sounds good also. Might I ask when you think your going to finish this and how much you have done? Good luck with it, I hope n00bs on ESO don't make to many crappy copies of it.

Lol, thank you.


I am about 60% done, all I need is the upgrading system for each unit.

Ya, I really don't want newbs to copy this map a lot either. :P I wish there was somekind of protector you could have on your maps.


Not to get off topic, but what ever happened to CCD? No one answer this but Papaya, because I don't want to get off topic

well, there is a way to let people know the map they are playing is a fake, and to know the 'fixer' is lying about the fact that he made the map: make a oad of useless triggers, and bury one that sends a message, telling everone who you are. Most likely, the n00bs will not realise what all of the useless trigger123's mean, so they will stop poking around. Most of them don't even know what triggers are, so you should't have too many worries about them finding it.

That is the longest post I have ever written. I hope you are happy.

Good Screenshots, could use some some more blending and embellishments, but I suppose you're going to do that later.

The conecept, is good, nice and original. Only thing I can critisize is that capturing the flag doesn't fit into the sniping concept, you can use quest vars for the amount of kills to win. Or if that seems unoriginal it could be, 'number of relics bought' or 'amount of gold'.

Ya, I changed the map quite a bit since I took those screenshots, and it looks better.


I may do the team kills, but I have the flag triggers done, and you change into a folstag flag bearer in when you get so close to it

@Druid ^ That is what I'm doing for flag.

I'm not going to use most relics bought that would be kind of dumb, lol, and the gold thing, there would be no point to buy relics then.


So I think I'll keep it to the flag, or team kills.


Thanks for the advice though!

One other things, I'm switching it to 45 kills for hero arcus, to make gameplay longer.

He's a member of Dragon Gaming Design Network.

And I don't think your a member of AD anymore, unless you've recieved an invitation from AD. Were using an invite system now, so if you want back in, you need to show ambition and quality, which can be done by doing our courses when they're back up (along with the website).

Okay, sorry for the double post everyone, but it's almost finished.


It is now 95% completed.


100%-Map design.
and
90%-Triggers.


I have improved the eyecandy nearly 100%, adding more nature-like objects. And decorated water area, also.


I have also changed instead of capturing a flag, to team kills. There is around 250+ triggers.

Expect this to be released in a day or two!

Hi vo1ture its NACHO_Neon i like ur map btw it rules! Personally though i would give los to the entire map so it is more challenging. I don't mean ommisance though that would give away the players just complete vision. Then you would have to hide in the trees and shoot people who are running around trying to look for you, rather than this little stand off where two players are just shooting arrows at eacher then running around - that gets a little bit tedius. (i spelt that wrong didn't i)

This signature would be blank is i were not here telling you that this signature would be blank is i were not here telling you that this signature would be blank is i were not here telling you that this signature would be blank is i were not here telling you that this signature would be blank is i were not here telling you that.................

Lol, thank you. Good idea though, but I'm done with AoM, and moving on to AoE3.

One other thing, I can't put this into the download section because I don't have winzip. (Yes, I know I can download it) So the only way you can get it is off ESO.

Sorry for that.

If someone would put this into the download section for me, give me credit, and copy and paste the stuff I have above (except for the striked out lines and pictures) would be very helpful, so I could get reviews and comments on the game.
