Map Scripting

Hello all, my idea is, because i'd like to script maps, but somehow can't get the will to make one myself, i'd like som1 to send me their maps, and tell me what to script and i'll do my best(not yet expert but want to become one )

How about looking towards the end of my Map-making-Tips thread. I gave a description to Fuir of a map I have that could use scripting.

Tell me if it sounds like what you are after. Markkur

Whoa. Hold the phone. I want you to feel free to also add your own ideas. I said "team-build"

Here's my simple story-start to think about:

Wyngaal and Sinatar are in the Shady Elf Tavern drinking mead. The Mead gets the better of them both. They have an argument about which Elvin factions has the better Dragons...viola the War between the light and dark Elves. Three other factions are island bound. Haven, Academy and a Necro. "All three are allied" against both Elvin sides.

The Map is primarily a Dragon Head  done in the H3 tradition.
All "Dragon artifacts" are on the map but not available in random placement.

The 'Win' is "defeat all" with only the Elvin factions playable.

So, what can you do? What do you want to learn to do. I'm in no hurry so you can undertake what you want.

One thing pops out in my head but I doubt it's possible in H5 but I don't know. Can all of the Dragon Artifacts be needed to be owned to Win? If they can, then some sort of 'Event' at the gaining of last one? There should be some text boxes around the map to tell the story-line. Don't you think?

Why don't you contact me at my posted e-address. I will just send it and you can look it over and we can go from there.

You are ToE 3.1 correct?

lol, when you're done with Markkur's map, I'm the next guy in the queue ^^

I still need a while until I'm ready with my map, but I would be very pleased if you would script a few things for me.

@El_Chita
@Cepheus

Fyi to all of you:

NaadirSlo has just about finished one for me. I don't plan on holding him/her hostage.(I've got many more myself) So Slo should be back and I'm also making sure Naadir knows; there's lots more work to do

Well, don't count me as waiting in line just yet.  I do want to give learning it a try because I used to program years ago and I kinda want an excuse to keep in the habit if writing codes.  Keep up the awesome work though!

Just wanted to give a public thank you to NaadirSlo.

I started testing. What an awesome start. Thank you for your efforts.
Since you want to focus only on scripting, if ever you want "a map made to your parameters" to execute your scripting, just ask. Send me an E and tell me what you want. I'm in your debt, Markkur

No no no, plz stay
And I'm sry that I did not answer, but there is not much happening in the Heroes Community I'm interested in, so I come here not very often. Maybe I just overlooked that you anwered, sry again.

Well, I don't know how long does your offer, but I'm still not ready with my map. It's the first one of its kind, and I have to deal with a lot of difficulties. Lately, my reskinner told me that he's too lazy(sry troggy )to reskin more creatures, and now I have do do a lot of them on my own. Additionally, certain modders don't want to tell me the secret how to link a model with a dds file

I did sent you an instant message with a link to a picture I uploaded, so that u see what I'm planning to do. The thread you will find here:

No, sadly not
I can't tell you when it is ready, but I will hurry up for H6, you know ^^
But since I'm not ready, you should work on Cepheus maps first, I think it's for LotA, if he still wants your help.

And about the scripting, at first I didn't thought I would need it, but there are a few things that would be very cool, a quest for example, or special things happening on a particular day.

When I'm ready, I will inform you, and if you are still willing to help we have a deal

Haha, thank you very much but it's okay. I was just joking around. Although I'll definitely keep you in mind if you're interested, NaadirSlo.
We are in search of a good scripter for LotA, but work is not going to begin until the mapmaking is finally at an end (two to go).

NaadirSlo,

If you are willing to work on another of mine I have a couple of things I am thinking about. It could give you some more "work" in between what the others here might have you do later. Not important, just a thought.

I am still testing "Dragon's Teeth" and might have to make some changes. Those three allied factions are stretching Wyngaal to the max and I have not even seen Sinitar yet

well he's teleported to his town in the underground, so unless he has perished he should appear at some point
BTW: markkur since you said about making a map, i thought of an idea but i lack the will to do it, if you're interested email me
