Thepoint of the map is playing a 1vs1 basic Starcraft with multiple Players controlling 1 side.
There are some maps out but of all them have some destroying issues including my own.
There are some probs u have to handle:
-only 1 player can spend ressources and the other players just have shared control, this is kinda bad when the microing players cant morph banelings fast at the front.
-2 players controlling the same unit
-some changes for the lobby is needed because only 1 player choose the race for his team and because of the moneyusing issue i implemented a vote for commander ingame. commander is doing the macro and the rest pick units to do micro.
-when the commander is leaving the game breaks, this need to take care of in triggers. I never get this running because it breaks my massiv messy triggers then....
in my map:
i can not disallow a player to choose a unit, i did a trigger wich removed the unit out of his selection when the unit is allready in selection of an other player of his team. This works but u can control the unit for 0.3 seconds, this is enough to mess up some orders.
I added a little text tag over controlling unit to show everyone who is controlling the unit atm. this causes lag because my solution was create a text tag every 0.2s with a 0.4s fade out. This looks very perfect but was laggy anytime.
The text is really essential imo to know who is doing what at the moment.
My map calls four4one and is published on EU.
I did not use the editor at least 1 Year now, kinda afraid to switch it on again and work me into it and overall i am not the best one to handle it well. Sadly there is no map with this style and i really want to play it. Some of u pros can do this easily in some hours i think because this is mostly basic stuff to do and the resultat is a easy to understand and very funny custom map.
I would love to see Catz is doing macro and dragon is going micro vs Babyknight and ToD or something. At least the mass micro u need in SC2 is an issue to handle for everyone including me and i would love to play this new style of 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 with my mates.
maybe there is allready a new map and i missd it, call it pls.
my map is "four4one - Metalopolis" (EU), another one i know is "team melee" on several maps. But like i said this both are not playable. team melee is loveless crap and my works at first look fine but have many bugs inc lags.
me and my mates would love to help u betatest it when needed. we are every evening in the same TS room.
What is needed?
-text tags over units
-alliance setting to control units / maybe the advanced version with moneysharing, so both can spend money
-some lobby changes that only 1 player choose the race for team
-win loss condition
-dissalow to select allready selected units (imo tough to do)
Sorry Playlessnamer. I have created this map already with Nooblark. Its called Starcraft Teamplay II - But I can help you with triggers if you would like. Or data editing.
How is ur map going? Any bugs? I wanna play it. Is it on EU?
How did u manage the problems i called?
