I present to you the latest project being developed by the UDMod Community :)Fields of Glory [FoG] aims to be the first real medieval-style AoS map available on battle.net.
Production on this project started a few weeks ago, and I'm proud to announce the first sneak-preview to everyone here at SC2Mapster :)
The map is a two-teamed AoS map set in a fully medieval environment. Each team will periodically spawn units that race towards the enemies base via two main combat lanes.
5 Players on each team will control one of several heroes in an epic struggle to capture key positions, and ultimately crush the opposing forces. At present there are no confirmed heroes, however, we are currently designing concepts, and are well underway creating custom unit models for the map.
FoG aims to contain a variety of unique assets including models, textures, UI and artwork throughout the gaming experience to ensure the player feels fully immersed within our medieval environment.
Here are a few previews of artwork you can expect to see from FoG:
We have also received permission from the legendary icon maker NFWar to use many of his icons within our project.
See below for a preview of these icons in action on our in-build UI:
We're always on the lookout for talented individuals with a keen eye for artwork. We're looking for everyone and anyone who would be interested in creating a custom model or two for the project. Want to join in the development and help shape FoG? Be sure to post in our development forums.
Please note, this is a development thread. Any game-content posted here are previews that may or may not be included in the final product. FoG is also very much "in-development" and many key features are yet to be decided. Detailed information on the game and its mechanics will follow in the coming months.
Also note, I am not the sole creator of this map. It is a team effort by the development team at UDMod. Please see the list below of current contributers:
