Posts: 44
Hello everyone, do you remember ever playing a game on Warcraft 3, called LOAP, or short for Life of a peasent, truly a great game, can last as long as 30 minutes or for hours, i myself enjoyed this great game and spent hours playing it, but i would like to have a SC2 version, Cortex is fun, but everyone is basically....a god.. with the game called LOAP everyone has a role set as the join game, which my not be so good when you wanna be a certain person, but im sure this game will work out VERY well, and i myself, really suck at making maps, so i hopefully can get someone whos really good at making maps and do this, Comment! and tell me idea's!

I actually made part of a LoaP map, but then I got sidetracked on another project. I may go back to working on it at some point.

I used to be really good at WCIII map editor and am getting much better at the sc2 editor, If anyone has a map that they have made for loap just contact me and i could help with triggers and characters and what not.

My code to friend me is 632... but i bet you could have found that lol

Well I better not end up homeless or otherwise without a decent PC & Internet or something whilst spending my time mapmaking or I might never get it done. I get very depressed and things go really slow but sometimes go through bursts of activity where I get a lot of scripting and other things done. No telling for sure how fast I'll progress with my maps.

Right now actors are really bothering me the most. I can't figure out how to make them work for me. There don't seem to be any tutorials or explanations on actor messages and I basically just looked at some of the libNtve functions Blizzard provided and figured out how to do a few things like tinting a unit and changing its model (but not its death model), playing an animation, setting the duration the animations play for, and there's also an explosion thing and a look at actor thing which I haven't been able to get to work for me at all. I hate actors...

I reckon I'll make a lot of progress with my wave spawn system, AI, various dialogue-based systems, and terrain generator though over the next while if I am not interrupted too much.


If you have questions post em and I'll see what I can do to answer them.

I am creating a LOAP map currently and on the verge of finishing it up and releasing it to the community. I am extremely excited about the project and I'm confident it will be enjoyed. Let me know if you'd like details on it.

I hope you all are as excited as I am.
