Description:
This is intended to be a spiritual successor to Impossible Cyrus. Players consist of a team of up to six players facing six impossible scenarios. It plays something like a combination between an Impossible map and an RPG. WARNING: It is hard. Teamwork and cooperation are required. Finally finished after about a year of development!

Gameplay:
The first player on the team starts out by choosing one of four difficulty settings: normal, hard, insane or impossible. On normal difficulty all enemies have 1/1 weapon/armor upgrades, except scarab damage which remains at 0 upgrades. On hard difficulty it increases to 3 weapon/3 armor/1 scarab upgrade. This pattern continues up to impossible difficulty where enemy upgrades cap at 7/7/3. There's a hidden Impossible Plus mode, given as a game code for beating the game on Impossible difficulty which increases upgrades a final time to 9/9/4.

After this, all players on the team have opportunity to select one of 15 unique heroes. Only one of each hero may be selected each game. There is also an option to randomly select your hero. Players are awarded 2 starting bonus ore for going random as well as the opportunity to obtain a powerful (OP, even) exclusively randomly obtainable arbiter hero. All player selectable heroes have been enhanced in some way or another with EUDs to make them better than their original SCBW selves.

Once players have selected their hero, they are granted 5 lives, 25 starting ore and have the opportunity to select units to accompany their hero through the subsequent mission. Similar to heroes, only one of each unit selection may be chosen per mission. Once units are selected for the mission, your hero and units are moved to the beginning of the mission. Make sure to get all your preparation (ore spending) done before selecting your units. All upgrades have been scaled down to a simplified system requiring single digit integer costs of ore only. Gas is reserved as mana for heroes.

Players have available in the lower section of the map an upgrade area which includes a Gateway with casting options for heroes as well as hero upgrades. Heroes upgrades available at the gateway include Mana Cap upgrades (3 ore each, 10 total), Mana Regeneration upgrades (6+6 ore each, 3 total), and Hero Energy Regeneration upgrades (3+2 ore each, 5 total). Building a Data Disc (A) displays helpful information about your hero. The upgrade area also contains a Comsat Station as well as buildings for upgrading all the weapons (3+1 or 4+1 ore per upgrade, 10 total) and armors (2+1 ore per upgrade, 10 total) available. There are some new upgrades available, such as the ability to upgrade the damage of Psionic Storm. Hotkeying your gateway and comsat station are highly recommended. I usually hotkey my hero 1, gateway 2, and comsat 0, leaving room for units and upgrade buildings to be hotkeyed inbetween; do whatever works best for you. The lower section finally contains a banning area for troublesome players, an emergency civilian which grants you an extra unit selection on a particularly tough round, a single use level skip usable by the highest numbered player in game (P1 first, P2 if P1 isn't in game, etc) and various storage locations for game maintenance.

Gameplay follows traditional Impossible Scenarios style, with six missions with many pre-placed units as well as ongoing spawns on timers and building kill retaliation spawns. One feature that makes this map unique from many other impossible maps is randomization of spawns. Each pre-placed unit has a category which has 1-8 different possible units it could spawn as for the mission. Timed spawns and retaliation spawns also generally have 2-16 different random combinations which might spawn on any given cycle. The idea here was to give players a feel similar to playing a game of Diablo where each playthrough, while similar to previous ones, is somewhat unique.

Players start with 25 ore. Each mission has several mineral chunks hidden around which when found by a hero will grant the team +2 ore. All players are awarded with +1 ore & +40 gas at 100 team kills, +2 ore & +40 gas at 200, +4/+40 at 400, +8/+40 at 800, and +16/+40 at 1600. Players are also awarded +10 ore at the end of every mission and +10 ore for killing the wandering Kakaru. In total there is 156 ore available on the map, resulting in the requirement of heroes to select certain paths or builds. A more recent addition is that for every player missing from the game, with maximum bonuses at 3 players, players get additional starting ore and ore per level (applies retroactively if someone leaves later on).

Given the combination of range of difficulty levels, randomization of spawns and many unique heroes with a plethora of upgrade paths, no game is likely to feel exactly the same as another, the goal of course being great replay value.

  • 01/11/21: Development thread started, version 0.48 released. Currently has 16 heroes with 5 of 6 missions completed.
  • 02/03/21: Version 0.50 released, major update. Final boss fight (sixth mission with four unique bosses to challenge) implemented. Unfortunately, at this point the bosses are completely overpowered, making tackling them a truly impossible venture (and not in a fun way). Will be releasing an update to fix this soon.
  • 02/09/21: Version 0.53 released. Boss fight significantly improved, winnable. Marshall (Marine) hero added, available through randomizer and game code given as reward for beating all missions
  • 02/11/21: Version 0.54 released. Mech hero added. Marshall EMP grenade range increased. Fixed Engineer's constructs to work for newly added heroes. Added Arbiter construct for Engineer.
  • 02/19/21: Version 0.55 released. Ranger hero added. Mech Tank damage decreased 50+6 -> 40+5. Reduced Ultrarbiter boss HP & SP regen from 25/s to 10/s. Attempted to fix randomly crashing bosses by changing building-based boss units to other units.
  • 02/27/21: Version 0.56 released. Improved Commando Gravity Trap range, duration and mine spawns. Changed Ranger Ultimate Spell from permanent morph to 30s morph with greater stats and muta spawn at end of morph. Implemented several game codes to apply different effects to the game, beat the game on all difficulties (2 codes per difficulty, 4 for Impossible) to collect all the codes! Improved Marshall's Ultimate Spell, added marine spawns three times during spell. Reduced quantity of science vessels on fourth mission.
  • 03/04/21: Version 0.57 released. Resolved crash related to selecting multiple mini-devourers with SD graphics. Removed Nuke Silo for Mech and Ranger heroes.

Fixed Guardian and Devourer requirements to remove Greater Spire. Fixed delay on Mission 5 attacks to make the initial phase more survivable (still tough).
  • 03/16/21: Version 0.62 released. Fixed Ranger's Guardian form to restore negative status effects after spell ends. Fixed Ranger's Guardian holding area triggers. Changed Ranger Hydra form damage from 28+7 to 30+6. May further reduce DMG per upg in future. Made several heroes invincible during their spell morphs, with the intention of making it so if you morph while irradiated, your hero will be saved.
  • 03/27/21: Version 0.63 released. Minor adjustments to Mission 3 & 4 spawns. Adjusted Engineer hero energy regen upgrades, now they give half as much gas regeneration, but each upgrade reduces construction time for all constructs by 10%. Made enemy hero units spawn as an orange-ish color as opposed to the standard yellow of normal units. Increased frequency of Azchon's Annihilate attack. Moved Mission 4 start location, hopefully this will make the mission a little less horrendously difficult.

Changed Hero Energy Regen upgrades to Tesla Regenerator upgrades, cost increased from 3+2 to 4+3 (this update reduced filesize by almost 1MB!).

Made difficulty auto-select normal instead of hard when first player doesn't select difficulty in time. Increased bonus for random hero selection from 2 to 5 ore. Made changes to higher difficulty levels to encourage players to attempt them. Hard difficulty grants 25 bonus starting ore and subtracts 1 life, insane grants 50 bonus ore and subtracts 2 lives, impossible grants 75 bonus ore and subtracts 3 lives and impossible+ grants 100 bonus ore and subtracts 4 lives. Made all unit selections reappear once each round if previously selected. Fixed minor bug w/P2 comsat regen speed upgrade. Fixed minor bug w/P3 mana cap upgrade.

Don't stop till you get enough

Version 1.02 released! Large update aimed primarily at reducing map file size (3.08MB to 2.10MB!!) and improving performance. See OP for DL link.

Full update notes:
  • Changed P5 color to cyan.
  • Changed Commando upgrades to zerg carapace & missiles.
  • Changed Hero Energy Regen upgrades to Tesla Regenerator upgrades, cost increased from 3+2 to 4+3 (this update reduced filesize by almost 1MB!). This update was done with the hope of reducing some trigger lag and making the map perform better on older PCs.
  • Tesla regenerator upgrades restore hero's HP, SP & NRG to full every 7 minutes - 1 minute per upgrade. Updated info strings to explain Tesla Regenerator info. Made difficulty auto-select normal instead of hard when first player doesn't select difficulty in time.
  • Increased bonus for random hero selection from 2 ore to 5.
  • Made changes to higher difficulty levels to encourage players to attempt them. Hard difficulty grants 25 bonus starting ore and subtracts 1 life, insane grants 50 bonus ore and subtracts 2 lives, impossible grants 75 bonus ore and subtracts 3 lives and impossible+ grants 100 bonus ore and subtracts 4 lives.
  • Made all unit selections reappear once each round if previously selected.
  • Fixed minor bug w/P2 comsat regen speed upgrade.
  • Fixed minor bug w/P3 mana cap upgrade.
  • Reduced Psi Storm upgrade cost from 4+1 to 3+1.
  • Removed mana regen halving from Engineer's Artillery Mode.
  • Added Assault Mode (120 spell) to Engineer which triples his stats for 30 seconds and spawns 3 vultures.
  • Fixed Special Ops' Snipe spell to hit more reliably.
  • Increased Engineer's damage from 10+2 to 15+3.
  • Changed Engineer's HP/SP/Armor from 125/50/0 to 150/25/1.
  • Increased Combat Medic's damage from 20+3 to 24+4.
  • Increased Elite Ghost's damage from 25+3 to 25+5.
  • Increased Elite Ghost's sight from 10 to 11 and attack range from 6 to 7.
  • Changed some unit selections.

Don't stop till you get enough

Another week, another update. Version 1.03 released. This update is significant because with it, all heroes now have ultimate spells. Previously Phoenix and Engineer didn't have ultimate spells because of their passive abilties, but each of those heroes seemed like they needed a little more, so now they have something else to work with. I made a few other small changes to improve certain hero's general viability.

Full updates notes:
  • Fixed bug with second unit selections on sixth mission
  • Removed shield healing from Azchon boss abilities
  • Added EMP ability to Special Ops
  • Added ultimate spell Armageddon for Phoenix hero
  • Changed Assassin's maelstrom to EMP
  • Changed Combat Medic's optical flare to lockdown
  • Changed Special Ops ultimate spell from Shield Generator to Tesla Generator, Tesla Generator restores both shields and energy
  • Slightly increased Phoenix's ground damage from 18 to 20

Mr.Pete-Tong

Wow ultraviolet this sounds like an really amzing map you made, i have only played impossible maps a few times they fun i think some of them abit to static like gameplay same every game... with your rpg style random spawn combinations im sure you make up for this... too me that sounds so great nice one, all the different heroes to play this game with i imagine is amazin. tho im not into euds making maps abit weird too me and limits is screwed (mostly really bad in the map ive used so long time on perfecting DS) if you use euds in a good way they prolly dont ruin it.. well just read through this post this sounds like an amazing good job you did here.. I gotta try this out when im not playing DS

And by the way i have ideas for a future map i want to make, its abit like this but instead of only fighting computer units you also fight other players pvp style, well my ideas are not all same as this. I could use some help from a master map maker like you maybe you intrested in a corporate map making??

Don't stop till you get enough

Thanks GGmano, would be happy to play with you if we're around at the same time, my bnet username is Ultraviolet on USWest. I know what you mean about impossible maps being too static, my original vision for the map was just to mix up that element, it ended up getting expanded into much more, but yeah that was the RNG unit placement was the original inspiration that started it all :) I can relate to frustrations and difficulties with EUDs as well, there have been so many random crashes and bugs related to the EUDs I have used in the map.. but man once you get it all sorted out and have all the extra functionality granted by EUDs, it's pretty sweet. I was always used to working with the 1650 unit limit anyway, so I don't mind that aspect too much, although it would be great to be able to have both. One advantage of Impossible style maps is that every unit counts for more, so having the unit limit lower doesn't affect things as much, and it ties together well with the fact that there's only so many guard slots available for one comp.

Sure, I'd be happy to collaborate, just PM me or message me on Discord with more info.
