Dota 2 TTW update #1

Post by H3katonkheir on 18/8/2015, 01:09

I lost a few precious weekends in a row, so development got delayed by 'a lot'. I brought a peace offering of some spoiler/teaser stuff so that people think that I'm working on the map Tongue

Sometime this week I'll probably make a Steam Workshop page for TTW, but I've been working on more important things.

There's quite a lot I will still do with the actual map, but this is it's current state. It's a bit more interesting than the Warcraft 3 version, but a bit less tropical-ly at this point (lack of Dota 2 resources - need to make my own, and that's very low priority)

It's obviously a lot more pretty in game with all the shaders and stuff. (Also zooming out makes the textures look... more repetitive than they actually are).

Also here's the custom team selection screen which (personally, I think) looks pretty cool. Again, lots I need to add, but usable enough for now.


The first builders will likely be the Troll Summoner (Troll Tribes), the Demon Conjurer and Rain Maker. Busy working on the Wisp King currently... But spell mechanics are hard.
I'd've loved to make other builders first, but there's a severe lack of models.

On another note;
I changed the goalie region a bit; made it symmetrical (I'm not OCD I swear Excited), flipped it and made it slightly smaller, simpler and more useful. Hopefully there will be some cool new mazes coming out. This shouldn't impact any (the exceptionally large majority) of the mazes and I doubt having the same path length should thaaat detrimental. It does mean that having 3 player in the goalie region is hideously inefficient though.

Oh yeah, and I swear this isn't all I've done Tongue (no, seriously, I've really done more), but this is the stuff I'm willing to show off for now Laugh

I can not wait for this to happen!
Can some sort of mailing list / early access be implemented for the ol' timers?

Almost definitely not, sorry Tongue
All the hosts that I used (Twilight & Garena) have stopped allowing WC3, so I assumed that WC3 has finally died.
Where do you play?

I used to play on garena even after they removed support for most countries.

But after this summer, I cant see more than 60(99% of which are bots) people in the Bulgaria RPG rooms. We used to have 2-3 of them full(225 each) at a lot of times last summer and TTW was really popular. In fact, for the past 3 years I have been playing TTW with mostly the same group of people.

I was really dissappointed when I logged in for the first time in 4 months yesterday and find out that absolutely all games are bot games. There is no room for player hosted ones.

I am so glad to see the progress towards this map. It surely will be the most played map in dota2!

Have you made any progress towards a mailing list we could subscribe to for updates or perhaps a steam group for change tracking?

Once Valve re-enables workshop (map / addon) submissions I'll be able to beta test the map Tongue and potentially release it shortly thereafter.

Also every addon needs it's own Steam page (created when it's uploaded), which will track updates and stuff.

After looking for many new tower wars, and noticing none of them are worthy, this is the best gaming news in a while!

Hey Zuul, if you add me as a friend on Steam; H3katonkheir, then I can set you when it goes from alpha to closed beta Tongue
