PROFESSIONAL MAP MAKER


SNYPE BOIZ (ALPHA)
8 player, fast paced shooter.






DESCRIPTION

SNYPE BOIZ is an 8 player shooter map, with inspiration taken from maps like Skirmish, Doom 2, and an old map I was developing called Urban.
Players choose a game mode at the beginning of the game and fight each other, play objectives, or wander around not knowing how to A+click.

Gameplay is simple. To fire your weapon simply A+click on targets and to move simply right click like a normal SC Map. My goal is to achieve a "easy to learn, hard to master" type gameplay loop. Having said that, there is a lot of depth going on behind the scenes.




MECHANICS

AMMO
Players have a limited amount of ammunition per life, and must reload either manually with hold position (H), or automatically when their magazine depletes.

ACCURACY
Players "accuracy" is determined by their movement. The longer a player stands still, the higher their accuracy increases, up to a maximum. This accuracy is directly added to the damage of their bullets. The moment a player moves though, the accuracy rapidly decreases back to 0.

MOVEMENT
Players movement affects incoming damage. The more you are moving, the less damage you take, similar to accuracy but in the opposite way.
Movement also has momentum, which means when you are moving for a certain amount of time, your unit starts to "run", which just means its movement speed increases.

These two things create an interesting outcome. Players may camp and hide behind trees and obstacles and benefit from doing way more damage on their first shot, but run the risk of being an easy target to their opponent. Players who prefer to run and gun do much less damage, often taking 3 - 4 shots to kill an enemy, but will take less damage because of their movement.

DODGE
Dodging makes use of SC's cloaking. Cloak to use dodge, though you only cloak for about 1 second, enough time to keep someone from targeting you and giving you a moment to evade.

PROXIMITY DAMAGE
This is very simple, the closer you are to a target, the more damage you do. When you are right up next to a target (about 4 pixels on all sides outside of ghosts collision box), you get a "point blank" kill which is +70dmg currently and usually an instant kill.

ADRENALINE
When players drop below a certain threshold of hitpoints, your movement speed drastically increases and you reload almost twice as fast. This is to give you a chance to evade a near death experience and possibly turn the fight around.

HITPOINTS AND DEATH
Hitpoints regenerate after a period of time without taking damage. When you die you lose your killstreak and your ammo is replenished. Depending on the game mode, you will respawn.

DASH
Players can use Patrol (P) to dash. This is a short but effective speed boost on a 5 second cooldown. I will change the hotkey in the future by default but for now it is possible to change the hotkey to a more useful key like (D) from the starcraft main menu.

LETHAL SIGHT
Players gain a +70dmg bonus when standing still for a period of time (about 10 seconds). This gives the unique opportunity of 1 shotting someone from a distance but leaves you incredibly vulnerable to run and gunner types.

KILLSTREAKS
As you get kills per your current life, you get new abilities and rewards for your efforts. (Like call of duty)

UAV @ 2 Kills: Reveals enemy locations on your minimap for about 30 seconds.

WEAPON AUGMENT @ 4 Kills: Powerful special weapon with limited ammo. Can be activated by right clicking minimap Killstreak button while alive.
------There are currently 4 different types of augment which can be cycled during death by right clicking the mineral.
------01 Flak Gun: Powerful splash damage weapon, use A+click to fire anywhere within a certain range.
------02 LMG: Light machine gun, A+click to begin firing, move to cease firing. High damage but inaccurate and not great at close range.
------03 PDW: Personal Defense Weapon, same mechanic for use as LMG. Worse accuracy the further you target. High rate of fire, perfect for close range.
------04 Noob Tube: Simple grenade launcher, Use A+click to launch a grenade. The further you are from target, the longer fly time is. Naturally.

ANGELS OF DEATH @ 6 Kills: Incredible air strike. (COMING SOON)




ZONES
Zones are selected at round start by right clicking the desired zone. (its a little buggy right now if you try to right click unwalkable terrain, which I am working on fixing.)

PROFESSIONAL MAP MAKER

Updated to v0.22

Added new game Modes: Free for All and Domination
domination plays like Domination in Call of Duty or conquest in Battlefield, capture flags to hold their positions. For every flag you own, you get control points, first team to 200 control wins

Added scoreboard you can view during death with Q, can scroll to view other players data as well.

Also added a shoot off feature for first spawn of each round which has players face off in an old western shoot off style.

Changed various stats based on playtesting

Thanks to Inferno, Dem0n, jjf, Moose, voy, etc for testing with me.

Next things Im gonna add are equipment like various grenades, claymore, more killstreaks, point bonuses for different tasks like revenge and coming back from a death streak etc.

Did a shit load of internal things for future proofing like an entire unit reload system for units that use Cunit EUDs which allows for multiple play zones within the map etc etc.

PLAY THE MAP if you havent. Thanks

So when we playing this again? I'm hooked and I want more!

Also, I'd like to suggest changing the names, hotkeys, and positions of cloak and patrol on the command card. Because you can do that with EUDs can't you?

Long-term it would also be cool to see a vertical long map.

we'll prob play today! (Sat March 7th) hmu on discord butch#4552 if you have discord.

And yes Patrol for certain will be changed once I figure out command cards but theres a few other things on the priority list first, like I want to rehaul the whole display text system so its less cluttered and more organized. I have plans for a vertical long map similar to "Longest" from halo 1.

Also I need to update this thread cause its way outdated, jus been very busy.

Yes anyone can make a zone and I'll credit you. Only qualification is that if its trash I'm gonna fix it to suit good gameplay.

lil-Inferno -- That's legit the only other map trailer I can think of, also by Tux
[10:56 pm]
lil-Inferno -- A&O Saga?
[08:44 pm]
youarenotworthy -- The trailer in question uses that exact music I linked. In fact, it's the main reason I remember it at all, because originally I was thinking it was a Matrix map, but I think it only used that music and that's why i thought that.

youarenotworthy -- Thanks NudeRaider, I found that, it's not it.

youarenotworthy shouted: If anyone remembers though, the map/trailer for his map used this music: "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGzz_871RRs"
the music is not exactly the same, so I'm not sure if it's another piece entirely or just another version but maybe this is it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k80m6oM1iK0 this would be the trailer to Tuxedo-Templar's Rush map.

youarenotworthy -- Thanks lil-inferno... I'm not sure if it was tuxedo templar. I remember his stuff being good too, but I can't find the trailer the guy made. I might be mistaken about his name. Either way, thanks. I'm gonna give up on trying to find it XD
