OVERLORDS

Pro Fast by zSnakez
Official Release Page


INSTRUCTIONS AND INFO

Overlords is a heavily transport based map.
Pick starting groups of units to be carried by your overlords to capture buildings.
These buildings add units to your spawn every 3 minutes.
To capture a building, you must kill the NPC units around it.
Each building captured also adds to your income every 3 minutes.
Depending on what kind of building you capture, determines how valuable it is.
Values are now displayed within the name of the building in the form of $ to $$$$
Collapse Box


Main Objective is destroy the opposing teams Hives.
The map allows the player to use multiple methods of doing that.
Some units provide "special" functionalities for the player.
There are multiple ways to capture buildings depending on their building type.
Collapse Box


Some buildings can be built the old fashioned way, and can give different bonuses to the player.
Collapse Box


Air buildings display the max number of themselves can be built, in their name.
Example: "Builing Name, $ Value" Max 3; Max 2; Max 1.

Income can shift during the course of gameplay, depending on how well you and the opposing team micro your units,
Killing opposing team gives 1 mineral to your team, Dying makes you lose 1 mineral personally.

Collapse Box


8 Building capture points are randomized based on how long it takes people to pick their starting units.
This functionality works for the most part, but can spawn some interesting non game busting glitches.

Generally speaking, building additional OVERLORDS increases your ability to fight the enemy,
and they also provide an additional 1 mineral per round for every Overlord.
Might not seem like alot, but in this map, every mineral counts.

Remembering every function of the map first playthrough can be difficult;
This map allows you to play by yourself to experiment with balancing and timing of certain things without opponents.

+ Rounds in general take less time.
~ -25 seconds to first round
+ Contestable units have been added.
~ If you kill the opposing teams arbitor, Infested Kerrigan, or Infested Duran;
you gain their unit specific benefits.
+ There now is an achievement system based on kills.
~ You will be rewarded increasingly through killing units through achievements.
+ Added infested Duran to the randomized hatchery.
~ Depending on the building randomization, you might see one to 3 benefits regarding these
contested units.
+ Kerrigan now adds +1 hydra to your spawn, Duran now adds +1 ghost to your spawn.
! In an effort to increase the arbitors abilities to mix up the game, Arbitors can now
change hands quite frequently.
+ You can now build machine shops for a cost.
~ Machine shops add tanks to your spawn.
+ You can now construct multiple zerg units based on the buildings you have captured.
~ Example: If you are running low on units for defense or attacking the enemy, there is a greater chance
you can fill that gap by building units at your starting hive.
+ Players can now produce nukes by building a nuclear silo on one of the rare command centers.
+ If you have infested duran, using nukes is now a potential option to you basically.
+ Yet again, some minor terrain edits to better the maps flow.
This mostly concludes the changelog for this patch.

Here is an info graphic I worked on tonight. If you are a visual learner,
perhaps this would help you, but mostly I made it to help me see everything I made so far.
However, it still looks pretty cool, and shows a lot of info.

+ Created a force fix for spawn in glitches, the glitch is now fixed, this will change some gameplay in the very beginning, but oh well.
+ The "mixed starting group" now has 1 hydralisk, instead of 2 zerglings.
+ Some upgrades have a scaling wait time, but it is mostly for show.
+ - 6 seconds to every round after the first round.
~ some people leave because of wait times, or they had a glitched start, this update addresses both.
+ You can now build wraiths from captured starports.
+ Valkaries, Corsairs, scourge, and overlords are now substantially cheaper. (-10 minerals averg.)
~ Overlords now cost 25 from 35.
+ drones now cost less.
+Nydus Canals take less time and money to build.
+You can now research and transform your hydralisks into lurkers.
+ Every player now receives +3 minerals per round base.
~ This plus the -6 seconds per round, and the spawn in fix, should all encourage players to play until the end.
~ Creating your own base should be rewarded more.
~ All basic functions should ensure the most balanced play sessions possible.
+ Terrain and locations around capture points have yet again been made slightly more optimal.

lol, my maps suck, but i still love mapping. The time I spent working is intensive, i can change the entire mechanics behind everything in an hour, but it never insure an idea is going to be a good idea. But I have had quite a few play seshes, and I can be sure there are some solid mechanics behind the idea that forces you to play differently, a lot come back everytime I host. If you find glitches within that experience, I expect you to be specific so I can fix it, map coordinates to a location that isn't interacting right, a part of the map that is too difficult, or perhaps a basic choice that takes up too much time. Interest feeds off of devotion pretty directly when it comes to working on maps. I really only try to do what is worth my time.

got rid of the missile turrets. npc can no longer pass the no pass line to obtain invincible mock units to attack the players. I had no clue the ai was this active if not directed. Anyway this map should be about as clean as it needs to be sorry for the delay.
