So ive already talked about my work helping out with the Fallout 3 mod ,Vault 151 on this blog.
Another tale i have regarding my experiences modding revolves around the RTS Classic Warcraft 3.
I LOVED Warcraft 3, played the campaign through several times, got into the multiplayer for a few months. Eventually the proposition of making maps for the game caught my eye and i decided to try my hand at making maps.
My map pack of honestly pretty average maps backed up by some neat gimmicks can still be downloaded here.
Anyway so one day an idea came to me. At that time i was playing quite a bit of DotA. For those who dont know DotA is a map/mod for Warcraft 3 that is extremely popular and basically spawned another genre. So coming back to this story, i decided to put together a clone of DotA with characters that i came up with and designed for the purpose of playing it at one of my LAN Parties.
I actually did finish making the map which i seem to have lost but still retain good memories of playing it thanks to its complete brokenness. To stress just how very BROKEN The map was. I present “The Immortal” A Hero whose ultimate ability was the ability to ‘Refuse’ to obey the universe and die when his health reached zero. Another hero which i cannot quite recall the name of became invincible during the night and another hero was able to build towers.
So anyway i made this map, we had fun. It was broken.
Now, yesterday i was playing some Starcraft 2 with my friends and the idea came to me. I might remake FotA(Failure of the Ancients) in the Starcraft 2 engine.
Its definitely an idea im interested in following and ill see what comes of it.
