Vexal Tower Defense

Layout View

Update coming in the future.

Tower Defense.

- 43 levels, including bosses with special abilities unheard of in a WC3 Tower Defense.
- Some levels have special abilities, again, which were unheard of in WC3.
- Unique towers which were not possible with the WC3 editor, such as towers with the Carrier's Hangar ability, upscaled to store an unlimited number of a variety of powerful units, or Sunken's ability to stack and uproot towers.
- Two unique races, Humanoid and Sunken.  Sunken is currently a work-in-progress.  The races are polar opposites in terms of play-style.
- Hero-Towers.  Hero-Towers gain experience and level with kills, and are allowed to choose their own distribution of skill points, as well as purchase powerful weapons to equip.
- Three modes of play:  Full Team, Left vs Right, and Solo.  More modes are currently in the works.
- Intense difficulty.  You will not win your first try.  You will not win your second try.  You will need a full team of coordinated players to make it halfway through my game.

Some notes:
- I usually am not able to actually test versions of my map privately.  Due to the nature of 2.0, in order to originally test this map, I had no choice but to upload it publicly in its half-finished form.  It is still unfinished.  Every so often (as in, every few hours, a few times a day), I upload a new version with a small addition (such as a new tower, unit, ability, or balance change).  If I were able to complete this map in privacy before uploading it, I would.  However, due to the fact that the maximum party size is 6, and this is a 10 player map, it is almost impossible for me to organize a full private game.  I apologize if a version is uploaded with game-breaking bugs.  

Feedback:  Post here, PM me here, message Vexal (525) in-game, or email

I have uploaded a map with the triggers and object data in my TD.  

This file contains all of the triggers and data for my tower defense.  Feel free to open and examine these.  You may take any part of this map's triggers.  You may reuse any of my methods for creating an object.  However, I request that you not use any of the ideas contained in this map.  You may use any piece of an object's data to learn how to apply a similar function to your own object.  You may not copy the idea of the object itself.

If you wish to build your map ON TOP of this one, please contact me first.  I will not forbid such action, but I have disabled certain function to prevent such from happening without studying the map.  I did so because I am uploading this with the intention that people will use this map as a tool to answer specific questions, ie "how do I make a hero" "how do I make a tower launch units" etc.  

I do not request credit on maps where parts of my map are used.  I DO request that you contact me if this upload was helpful, and let me know exactly how it was so.  So that I may keep track of whether this is useful to anyone.

    Hi Vexal,

    Not sure why but I can't buy weapons for my hero, nor can I sell any towers except for the bunkers. The button to buy weapons for hero is not there. Any recommendations?

    Dear Vexal,

    I am a long time fan of your map. I have been playing it on and off since release. I would really like to see you update this map. The work done on this map is fantastic and needs more recognition. This map could easily take back the number spot on the charts, it just needs to be updated; and even a minor update would bring people back to your masterpiece. I know a small group of people that play the map now, but it's no competition anymore. Please, if you could just consider continuing to work on the map it would be greatly appreciated and rewarded.

    Vexal... I play the map alone most of the time as a anchor and I'm wonder what causes the Alien's to jump. I have yet to be able to beat that level and it's bothering me. Thanks.

    Yo, Vexal, i kinda wanna know why you quit updating this game when its the 2nd best in SC2 if you would upgrade the game it would probably bump to 1st And also i would wanna know if anybody knows why the hell my Global Stats never register.

    I enjoy this map a lot... I usually create the game and just make myself anchor and play alone. Is there a better way to play alone? I can't get it to go to dedicated solo game. Maybe I am missing it.

    Then the real question. Anybody know what to do with level 22 primordial it's a trap level when u play alone?

    You Vexal, great game! I'm hooked to it. I wanna do that 2mil kills but there is one problem for me.... ITS BLOODY BUGGY! I mean its horrible, I would have finished the Insane mode so many times it seems like everytime I get a great team, your trap level bugs (It has bugged on me atleast 5 times the past 3 days). I think you should just remove whole flying shit and exploding shit. My worst problem is that your win condition is bugged. I just won the game about 5 hours ago and it bugged. I have replay to prove it. I want my credit and my arcane skill unlocked! I just wanna play arcane!!!!!!!!

    I have to ask something about the global statistic system. How are people getting these ridiculous scores and have no idea how to play? When I say ridiculous I mean they have 2,000,000+ kills on each difficulty, 100+ wins in each difficulty, and 300 leaks; Then they have no idea how to play?(Example I had a person trying to maze with Lazers on round 1 then complained about not having enough money. Or they would go sunkern as anchor). Wth?
