Im currently making "epic" singleplayer project CoA, and your imput will be very appreciated. Here is my project page where you can download the latest version of the map [v2]. Current plan is that story will span across several maps, few of my friends are working on ironing up the story and testing possibility of recording full voiceovers. Sadly i am working on everything else :D
So, try it. Comment on it if you like it. Suggest some changes regarding the events/triggers, bug hunt, balance changes.
note: V3 will probably be online tommorow, expect more gameplay in it.
Realised some more stuff:
The Ivanco fight initialization can be accidently bypassed by following the northernmost part of the route.
Talsaris doesn't have Hold Position.
Stalkers have no real reason to have the unreseached blink ability showing.
I really enjoy the voiceovers. Map seems really great so far. Only errors I could find:
-Some grammatical errors in conversations.
- A random Zealot speaks twice. His audio clips are mixed up. The screen says "The beacon is powering up" but the audio says "The beacon is transmitting" then the screen says the Beacon is transmitting, but the audio says "The beacon is powering up.
- That large Grinder-looking doodad near the terran starport/armory can be walked through.
-When my hero died, it brought the screen to the far bottom left where a completely alive version of my hero was hiding.
Call of Ancestors v1.2 is out. It features FULL VOICEOVERS for ingame cinematics and tons of fixes based on your sugesstions!!!
Plot: After learning that Terran mercenaries are desecrating one of their planet, young Protoss warrior Tarsalis lands on a planet and begins his quest to reach lost ruins. But unknown to him, his superiors have more sinister plan in place.
