Well, I was bored playing Starcraft about a million times when an idea struck me! I'm gonna make a map.
Enough of that noobish stuff. You start off as a civilian in a "house" (it's actually a patch of grass surrounded by temple) and you go off into town. There's a couple of Forges, Cybernetics cores and stuff, but what really grabs your attention is the gateway. You go up to it and you get teleported to a room. In that room, there's a templar archives, and anothe gateway. you can choose to be a zealot or a templar. I haven't got that far yet tho...
You should probably use the Production Template. It will help you provide more details so we can have a more accurate understanding of your map.
As it is right now I don't know a whole lot about your map. It sounds pretty interesting from what I can tell so far.
This looks good. I can't wait to play it in fact it might be better then PCfredz WOS map.
Also Nerdyterdy you dont always have to start with a template at the start. He can use it later on.
It would be a good idea to get some information from WoS
. But not steal ideas or map!
Try out PCfredZ' one first, then add more information. Also, a few screenshots would help on the feedback. And add some color into your post.
So... yeah, you might want to change the name of your map.
I doubt you can steal the WoS franchise outta PCFredZ's hands ;P. Plus your name kinda contridicts itself. StarCraft means 4 races (Terran, Zerg, Protoss, and the legandery Xel' Naga) while the second name, life of a protoss, limits to only 1. You would need to, or instruct to make a series for at least the terrans and the zerg to satisify
But other than that, looks like another RPG is going to be produced on SEN, best of luck ;D
Thanks for all the help. I'll see what I can do about the name. Here's a new description:
This was in another forum:
Hay, Xybernet once again with a bright new idea. I'm an rpg type map. You start off with a Terran Civilian. You wake up in your house (it's surrounded by temple wall with a beacon signaling exit) feeling like today is the day you sign of for military service. You walk into "town" and go to the terran barracks. It says training facility. You go to the beacon and you are transported yet into another room. You get to choose between templar and zealot.
If you choose Zealot, you are transported into a battlefield with 9 other zealots. There are 5 siege tanks shooting at ya'll. Use your microing skills!
If you chose templar: you are transported to a room. There is a.. Let me show you.
zerglings are running from left to right
try to kill as many zerglings as you can with one psi storm. If you kill more than six, you pass. If you don't, you are transported back to the room to be a zealot. Then when you go out to the town, you can upgrade armor, shields, etc. And when there is a battle, you have to go to the military center and you are warped out into a gateway. Once on the battlefield, you try to get as many kills as you can. If you die with fewer than 20 kills, you restart TO THE VERY BEGINNING. If you die with OVER 20 kills, you turn into a dragoon. Same thing with templar.
If you're a templar and you DON'T die with over 20 kills in one battle, you can choose to convert into a Dark Templar, or an Archon, or a dragoon.
The battles are set at random times, so you never know when you're going to be transported back into the battlefield. (left side of the map)
The game is won when you reach the ultimate rank: Adjudicator (arbiter).
What did you think?
this project is UNFINISHED
That was me, Xybernet @ Logamation.com
Just wondering, why don't you make the character start out as a probe or something that is protoss so it's not weird. Also a suggestion why not make the barracks a gateway? It just makes more sense..
Here's your "room" heh. Your dad was slain in battle-with over 20 kills. That earned his family a house. The Cerebrates are the couches, and the photon cannons are for defence, the missile trap is like a tv, and the psi emiters are decorations.
u might wanna look into extended terrain for the house, as it is now it doesn't really look like a house... the concept of the map is not bad, after, u could continue with 2 other maps, Life of a Terran and Life of a Zerg... just my opinion...
Well, the raised dirt is going to be your room, and your mom and dad are in the master bedroom. Anyways, the house is not the biggest concept of the game, no? But I'll ad a few more stuff just for the heck of it.
just put a data disc as a "Security Console" or w.e and forget the photons...
Ok that was done, and I'm in the middle of the town right now
It looks like a cross of sims maps and WoS. WoS owns. Nothing happens when you kill the overmind. A friend and I nuked all the Zerg and Protoss bases except for the main Protoss base because the cannons on the high terrain are near impossible to kill.
You should make your house a bit more terrain based in my opinion. A Protoss Sims map would be kinda fun.
I'm at the point where I HAVE to do the triggers. I've always hated doing triggers and still do. Anyways, I'll release a demo version of the map as fast as I can at this point.
How are you coming with renaming your map? Simply "Life of a Protoss" or something.
Yeah, I'll officially change it to Life of a Protoss. I'm still doing triggers and the cheesy storyline. LOL, anyways, other than that, it's coming along just great. I work on it 15 minutes a day, sometimes an hour when possible. I use way too much tree doodads. Same with temple terrain. If only Blizzard would give more choices... Anyways, that's all my updating for today. I've got the templar training facility finished. If you kill 10 zerglings on your first wave of psi storm, you pass to be a templar. Zealot choice is yet to be finished.
Meh, looks okay but you could work on it a bit more
Keep up the good work!
