Yeah, we had loads of fun. Balance isn't perfect but we were all new to the mod (and we're all noobs) so that probably played a part in it.

I'll have to remember to stream next week's mod night. More people should join voice too, Dem0n and I were playing christian mingle for most of tonight

The sword and the faith

I see you guys are using quite a few of my maps. :P Sorry you don't like the rectangular one, it was an experiment, one of two actually. I think there's potential in that aesthetic but its very hard to execute since everything has to be done manually.

For anyone who doesn't have my full library of large-scale maps, you can get them here:

I'll try and join in myself next time.

Thanks for the maps ex!

Part of the reason that map was no good for this mod was the tileset edits that absolutely melted our eyes. Not your fault.

Loveless suggested we use Shadowflare's Realm instead of iCCup next time. Not sure if it'll help with the hosting issues we were having or not, but it's worth a look imo.

I have perfect hosting on ICCUP if that's been an issue for you guys.

I don't have any issues hosting on ICCup either. I know Pr0nogo and Corbo did, not sure if any others.

I never had any issues years back but my current modem won't let me log in. I'll see if I can get it resolved in time for next week

I streamed last mod night over at my twitch channel if anyone wants to go back and find funny moments. I'm poring through it looking for some screenshots.

As for Masters of Holocaust, I'm planning on making some changes to the stat_txt.tbl for better readability. The obvious thing would be to highlight the hotkey for the build tiers. Otherwise, does anyone have any update requests?

edit: NEW LINK!!!
Includes changes to enable smart rally, repair on idle, and rally points for all factories. Also fixes a huge number of tbl issues. I'm sure I missed some so I'll update with fixes if anyone else finds them.

Potential changes:
-Allies marine hotkey to 'A' (from 'M')
-Axis gateway hotkey to 'G' or 'B' (from 'L')
-your idea here

This is a cool idea, I'd be up to play next time.



None.

Jul 13 2017, 9:53 pm KYSXD Post #33



I saw that SC Revolution is the next mod for the Mod night.
Have you guys tried its multiplayer before?

The last time I played with RavenWolf we got desync in all the games.
Maybe it was a one-time thing. But if it was a problem with the mod we could wait for RavenWolf to release a fixed version before scheduling for a Mod Night.




Jul 13 2017, 10:20 pm Pr0nogo Post #34



If we get desynced we can just play GAG Mania or something else.




Jul 13 2017, 10:26 pm Voyager7456 Post #35

Responsible for my own happiness? I can't even be responsible for my own breakfast

Since GAG Mania was the other thing we were considering, I will put it as a link in the first post as well. If SC:R proves too unstable, we'll switch.

Responsible for my own happiness? I can't even be responsible for my own breakfast

For this mod night, we played three mods: SC Revolution, GAG Mania Draft, and Orid Ibanna.

SC Revolution:

Collapsable Box

We begin Mod Night with the traditional inaugural dropping of Corbo.

Collapsable Box

This map has some P12 units in the center. SC: Revolution has SCVs auto-mine at the beginning of the game, so P12 is industriously mining out this expansion. What they gonna build though? O__________O

Collapsable Box

Evidence that things are not going well across the map.

Collapsable Box

I spent a while massing Diamondbacks because I like their sprite. Unfortunately, they don't attack air...

Collapsable Box

I flee in all directions.

Collapsable Box

It doesn't really go well.

Collapsable Box

My plan to hide among P12 does not work.

Collapsable Box

Fair enough.

Collapsable Box

Meanwhile, Dem0n getting bopped from every direction.

Collapsable Box

Ex and KYSXD fight at the bottom of the map.


Collapsable Box

KYSXD has a truly impressive line of Hydras that streches all the way across a 256x256 map. So impressive that it desyncs me.

Second game is a 4v4:

Collapsable Box

Inferno's bunker rush. Shortly after we all desync and switch to GAG Mania Draft.


GAG Mania Draft:


Collapsable Box

The color palette is interesting...

Collapsable Box

We discover that mineral chunks only return 4 minerals though...

Collapsable Box

Warping some Zealots onto the cliff to fight Ex's tank line. Unfortunately they don't warp fast enough to avoid getting murdered.

Collapsable Box

Merc Gunships from Corbo wrecking my upper base.

Shortly after this I end up desyncing everyone by using shuttles to warp in units. My bad.



Orid Ibanna:


We decide to switch to an updated 1.16.1 Orid Ibanna:

Collapsable Box

Bopped right out of the gate.

Collapsable Box

Early game skirmishes.

Collapsable Box

Harsh, Polaris.

Collapsable Box

Fighting back and forth with Inferno, after bopping some folks in the way.

Collapsable Box

Maybe I can just wait for everyone else to crash...

Collapsable Box

There are a few more battles, but Inferno and I are the only ones left and it becomes clear I can't win, so we gg to start the next game.

Collapsable Box

Doodle evades his ICCup IP ban.


Collapsable Box

SEN tourism commission discussing our beautiful national parks.

Collapsable Box

Bop Dem0n right outta the internet.

Collapsable Box

Battling Corbo to my south.

Collapsable Box

And Doodle to my east, until he crashes.

Collapsable Box

Oh hi Farty.

Collapsable Box

Corbo is using his minerals and time wisely.

Collapsable Box

I emerge victorious from the big ship battle at the end.

At this point we have determined there's something in the Pegasus Legion that causes the crash, so we start an all-Mechana game.

Collapsable Box

I am cannon-rushed by Inferno. :rip:

Collapsable Box

Getting bopped from all sides now.

Collapsable Box

Cannons are so good that Inferno and I are just fighting by building cannons next to each other. It goes well for me...

Collapsable Box

...until he starts building things that out-range cannons. :(

Collapsable Box

Rude, but not wrong.

Collapsable Box

I'm out of the game at this point, so I decide to harass Doodle with cannons until he gets tired of my shit.

Collapsable Box

The only free source of minerals at this point is halfway across the map from my only Nexus, and requires microing my probes between 3 enemy bases.



I enjoyed all of these mods, especially Orid Ibanna which is so different and visually striking. We have the crash somewhat narrowed down, so I'm hopeful that it can be corrected in the future.

Maybe off topic but...

Is anyone interested in any kind of tournament (Best of 3, Bo5, 1v1, 2v2) in a mod?




Jul 22 2017, 7:32 pm Voyager7456 Post #38

Responsible for my own happiness? I can't even be responsible for my own breakfast

For this week, we chose to play Ad Astras, by Lord_Armageddon. We also played Eternal Duel: Earth vs. Mars.

Collapsable Box

Ad Astras is not the most intuitive mod.

Collapsable Box

Some early skirmishes in game one.

In game 2, something goes wrong and only Farty can build structures. The rest of us ally against him, despite only being able to build workers.

Collapsable Box

Strict isolation must be imposed.

Collapsable Box

Massing forces on the doorstep...

Collapsable Box

Charge!

Collapsable Box

The combined mass of our Construction Tenders begin to break Farty's defenses.

Collapsable Box


After this, we play some Eternal Duel:

Collapsable Box

Required addons + no lift = :(

Collapsable Box

A couple battles in ED.

Unfortunately we started experiencing some technical problems (both with the mods and our networks). Hopefully we can resolve these for next time.

Sorry I couldn't attend last night. If anyone would like to play some mods tonight I should be available.

For this Mod Night, we played SC: Burning Ground, a total conversion that introduces three variants on the Terran race and features some seriously impressive graphics and plugin work.

Collapsable Box

The graphics come directly from StarCraft 2, but they've done a very impressive job of making them fit. The perspective, colors, etc. all look pretty good in-game.

Collapsable Box

Farty makes a disturbing discovery.

Collapsable Box

The first game goes to me, thanks to my ridiculously large battlecruisers.

5 player FFA next:

Collapsable Box

I get rekt pretty early.

Collapsable Box

Harassing Pr0nogo's workers until he manages to get Lockdown. The Leviathan can do some cool space drifting while attacking, so I admit I was a little mesmerized making it drift instead of actually doing anything useful.

Collapsable Box

Being in the middle of everyone is not a good position to be.

Collapsable Box

I'm just going to live with Farty now...

Collapsable Box

Oh.

Collapsable Box

Early skirmishes on the next map.

Collapsable Box

The ability to call a Gunship is pretty cool - it flies across the map and shoots everything in the area for what seems like forever. It's a unit too, so it absorbs a lot of damage.

Collapsable Box

Inferno has had enough of my shit.

Collapsable Box

Jackson does not get his revenge vs. mass Thors.

We play a final game on Kakaru Keys, the map that ominously warns "Watch out for the Kakaru!"

Collapsable Box

Psi Albatross? o____o

Collapsable Box

:rip:

I rather liked this mod - a little confusing because I wasn't familiar with the units and it's hard to keep track of the differences between Terran factions - but some awesome plugin work and graphical overhaul went on here. It's also very pleasantly stable - I don't think we had a single issue.
