Well, as a fellow "custom-racer", may I wish you good luck. :P You'll need it; things like this are a dime-a-dozen (mine included).
Anyway, my best piece of advice would be to tell you to take it slow. (Of course, you could look at my thread and call me a hypocrite, yet notice that I make no promises and just try to work on one thing at a time. :P) So while you seem to promise all these races, I would caution you that, to make them well, it takes a lot more work than you would think.
Also, something strange with your thread; your signature links to a "http://hilton.gw.oiccam.com/showthread.php?t=104333", which (IIRC) is for archives, and means no one can post in it. I substituted "hilton.gw.oiccam" with "wc3campaigns.net", which helped a bit. Anyway, it works if I go through the Forums to click on it, but I would highly suggest fixing your signature so it leads to the right place.
Finally, take it from me; posting your test map for all to see will net you little in regards to reviews or even feedback here. There is actually a "Project Testing" forum (which I recently found xD), that is precisely what you need. Post a more finished product there, and hopefully it'll work out.
So yeah. Good luck. :P
Looks a very good and promising project,so good luck with it!
You need some custom abilities for the heroes to improve it.
PS:I'm italian too.
to kyrbi0: thanx for the advices, I posted the map to increase attention a bit, but I think is quite a useless way if it's not in the main language of this forum. Also you're right, I should take it to the testing forum, after the translation. (PS: I fixed the signature)
to Evil Arthas 87: You're officially the second player of this map, congratulations! XD
A small hint, I started a race project before, and it is MUCH easier to build only mini-races at first, and later build them up to big, major races.
Yeah, that's true, in fact I'll start every new race as a mini-race, but some of them are meant to remain small (ex: Murlocs or Kobolds), some of them will be expanded (Nerubians?) if I have enough models, spells and also ideas.
However, this is my first project, but it's also quite old (I made the first 4 races and Draenei 3 years ago, Nerubians and Woodsgang a year ago, Alliance Remains just some weeks ago, though I made very long pauses between periods and I began to use custom models only recently), so the amount of work for the races is way less than it may seem. Thanks for passing and for the interest you shown. :emote_thumbup:
So what's this about a Troll race, mmmm? :P
An old idea, to be honest (3 years :P)
Initially this pack was intended to be followed by a campaign for each race, in Trolls' League's campaign Island Trolls (like the Darkspear Clan) suffered from heavy attacks by a Naga army, the result of this was Island Trolls seeking for aid from the other Trolls and re-forming a long-time past league with fighters from each of the 4 Troll races in WC3.
I also have ideas (but sadly not the time) for campaigns made from the other 4 main races.
Last thing, actually I'm working on having an almost decent (but still rough) english beta for a closed beta testing (it'll be hopefully finished on Saturday), are you interested? As a "fellow custom-racer" your tips could be really helpful.
*cough* like here... *cough*
Funny, that's just one of the things I was going to ask to beta testers. :emote_grin:
I've just seen that example of your work and, well, I just want to say that you're really, I mean REALLY skilled in this kind of things, so OK, I think it's a really good idea if you make a proofread of it (if you can, of course), but since it's WIP it could be a little problematic situation.
Then I think I'll ask the beta testers to make only suggestions, bug and hot-key issues reportings.
Well, ask anyone you want; in fact, the more people that look at it, the better it could be (potentially. Then again, if you ask too many people, it's like democracy; nothing will get decided on. :P)
Anyway, I'd be glad to proofread stuff when I find the time. Just hit me up (or post in this topic) when you have a translated beta/alpha/whatever. :P
IMPORTANT!!! ALL BETA TESTERS MUST READ THIS!
Now English map is completed (again, post in this thread to join the beta testers), in this post I'll answer to some questions you'd surely ask me:
A: Warcraft is right, this IS a 4 player map, fifth slot is computer-only slot for Invaders vs Natives, in the other modes it'll be disabled
A: So do I :P, if you are a terrainer and you're interested let me know...
A: All explainations are in Pack Status and in the map's quest menu
A: Most of the races are not completed, here is a quick list of polishing status:
A: Most of the hero spells are now simply place-holders, a quick list: (I'll make a detailed one these days)
Another thing on this question: classic heroes = classic spells (if this doesn't cause doubles in the modes)
A: Majority of untraslated spells are simply junk, heroes and units are either unused or usable in the future.
A: It should work in multiplayer, the current version should give no problems if all of the players have the right SEMPQ, but if you want to give it a try, remember, ONLY BETWEEN TESTERS!
(And in the case someone asks)
A: Sure, but I'd like to have a minimum of credits.
Same answer if you want to use/modify one of my AIs.
And DON'T STEAL IDEAS, if you want to use a mode/race of mine etc. ask for permission first!
All I care about right now is Trolls and Naga. (mwahaha). Also, if you have anything "mostly polished" (i.e. probably just the Blood Elves/Naga), or anything you feel is "finished" that I can go through (grammatically), then I'd be happy to.
Waer da link!? :P
Never mind. Just read the PM. >_<
Kyrbi0, for now I think proofreadable races can be: Blood Elves, Naga and Trolls' League (also a short look on interface (triggers) could be helpful).
In this post I'll put and update pack status (and completion status):
Races descriptions will come soon
No ideas (open to suggestions) ("(?)" means that all the idea is in discussion and so changeable)

In game (for the current races) but has to be redone from scratch (scripting it, thing that I should learn :/)
When I got this whole written in Blue, I can say the Pack is completed.
Woah woah. What's all this? Game modes, natives, mini-races... I'm confused. I thought you were adding some races to the game. :?
Also, I have yet to download the map. I haven't forgotten; I just haven't gone out yet. :P So no updates as of yet.
Umm... Yeah. So what are you talking about with the above? Love the colors, BTW. :P
