    posted a message on [Resolved] Can you convert a WC3 model for me?

    Hey,

    We are currently working on a re-creation of the map TMA Legend from StarCraft Brood War. Things are going well we are able to find or re-create most of the old units with the editor. One thing is missing though: Although we already saw the Reaver on older screenshots from Blizzard, they didn't include the model. That's a huge setback for us since the Reaver was always a wonderful unit to micro with...well at least as long as you had a shuttle with it.

    So here's the question: Would you allow us to adapt your Reaver model with the animation and use it for our map Team Micro Arena Legends? I don't know if the animations are enough to actually use it in game or only for a cinematic (hilarious one by the way, maybe you can even get some voice actors fot the sequel). Anyways it would definitly be like really valuable for us to get the good old caterpillar Reaver back for SC2.

    Just wanted to let you know, that we found someone caring about this project. So we will stick with this one for now and I am confident that together we will be able to re-create a TMA Legends for SC2.

    Thanks for your interest and all the feedback, sc2mapster can be glad to have talented guys like you around.

    Thanks a lot for all your feedback and replies, I really appreciate it.

    Also "special thx" to nomoreholywar, this really is some valuable discovery! The map looks pretty solid already, for me personally there are just two things which I don't like that much. Those two high grounds are pretty much close together, there's only little place to micro and you can constatnly being shot by units which are standing on top. Second thing is, I am not sure if this oldskool map Terrain will function with units like Reapers, Colossi or even Stalkers with Blink. But I will definitly follow this project and see how it feels playing once it has been released.

    About the "shopping system" of TMA Legends: I have to admit, using the selectors doesn't only take quite some time but is kinda cumbersome as well. So only clicking on the beacons is a nice alternative to this, just like Gradius solved that issues. I am not aware of the possibilities the Galaxy Editor offers, nor what was possible on WC3 - I have always been SC BW only. But anways, I am intersted in what you consider to be an improvement in selecting units for this map. Our vanished ex map creator OverSky has been working on a way to select units via menu directly from the Nexus building, but after testing it we found this to be less intuitive than just having the units displayed on the map. The zones are important for the actual gameplay as well, since you can drop tanks and other stuff there - forcing your opponents to select air units or counter drop units themselves.

    I will reply to everyone who PM me, just give me some time to sort stuff and get an overview.

    One thing that I am wondering is if you want a straight copy of the original map or if you would give the map creator the freedom to perhaps improve on the map now that we have the ability to do more advanced things compared to SC1. For instance the whole method of selecting units by using beacons and selector unit is kind of out dated. The new dialog system, an upgrade menu or a wc3 style shop system are all superior ways of doing it (as they require less space and allows for more flexibility).

    Anyway I got my own project going so I don't have time to do it but figured it might be something you want to consider.

    Ye well the first project would be to just copy the old map like completely. Maybe we leave the selectors out and just select stuff by seleting a beacon directly. Displaying unit combinations in the the zones is a nice feature to show people exactly what they get and where they currently are considering their points/selectors...at least in my eyes.

    Improving the map with a completely new gameplay and new mechanics would be a second project. We don't know how this gameplay will feel on SC2 yet, so a (let's call it 95%) copy of the old map would be the first thing we aim for. New units, new features (there's for sure so much more possible now with the Galaxy Editor) are definitly intended for the next version which could be developed from this copy or be a completely new map.

    Quote from SaucySC: Go

    I would love to help with terraining. I could set up Multiple different terrains in the map and with triggers at the begining there could be a small vote on which terrain is chosen. I'm not the greatest with data or trigger but i'm okay I love to terrain though.

    That sounds great! I would appreciate something like different Terrains, although the jungle one (used for Lost Temple I think) would probably fit best to achieve an exact copy. Important are stuff like the walls, the ruins, trees and the teleporters since all belongs to the gameplay in some way.

    Here is a link to a larger picture of the map: http:team-micro-arena.net/img/tma_legends54_big.jpg

    If you need any information about the map, feel free browse our website about how it's played: http:www.team-micro-arena.net/map.html

    I am confident we will find someone who's familiar with scripting/triggering once the Terrain is done. So thank you in anticipation for your work and hope to hear from you soon. If you need any more information, feel free to contact me or use our website http:www.team-micro-arena.net. I can also send you the old original map from Brood War, if you can open it or use it in some way to get a more detailled impression.

    Hey,

    You might know the map Team Micro Arena Legends. We are a clan/community which developed this map over the last years since 2004. Now with the upcoming release of StarCraft 2, we would like to transport this map. We already were in contact with a map creator called OverSky, but he vanished without a trace some time ago and that's why I am posting here - we are looking for a new map creator who is willing to work with us.

    We provide interested TMA players with information like tutorials, stats, strategies and a community forum. If you would like to check our website, please visit: http:team-micro-arena.net/

    The first project would be to re-create the current version Team Micro Arena Legends 5.5 from StarCraft Brood War. We hope that there are all the old BW units vailable in the editor after the release, so adapting the original TMA Legends map is possible. Here's a picture of TMA Legends 5.5:

    So if you are a motivated mapper, are kinda familiar with the galaxy Editor and are looking for a project with a community behind your back - feel free to get in contact with me. I can offer you all the triggers from original map from Brood War, as well as all the units stats and a lot of feedback from our TMA community. You would be the official TMA map creator mentioned on our website and for upcoming projects also free to create and balance a new TMA Legends map, using the new SC2 units.

    I would be glad to get in contact with any interested mapper who knows or - even better - likes TMA as much as we do. Being familiar with this map is not like necessary though.

    Feel free to send me an Email to admin@team-micro-arena.net, PM me or just reply here.

    See you soon and TMA 4 life!
