File Description

This is an incomplete map

The developer of this map has decided to make it available to other developers in hopes that someone will finish it. MightyBobBarker has had a vision of changing a Warcraft 3 map into something different...and this evolved into a First Person Shooter-style map.

Although he has had success in doing this, he has had problems with it as well.

The main file included in "Shooter.zip" is "Shooter.w3m" which is a Warcraft III Reign of Chaos map file. This map file is an incomplete project I worked on for a while. I wanted a Warcraft III maps to be more than just linear maps of strategy. I decided to try to do something that no one else had done before.

The only thing I could think to do was try and make a first person shooter style map. Although I succeded in numerous ways, I kept being dragged down by the numerous problems and bugs I was running into. That is why I have decided to release this map to the public and other map makers that might be able to make better progress than I. I don't have any desire to finish this map or even work on it any farther but it is a revolutionary idea that I would like to see someone finish. If finished, it could be the closest anyone has come to making a true "Halo" map on Warcraft III. (Note: Only those experienced with Blizzard's World Editor software should attempt to finish the map. There are some advanced triggers that an ametuer would not understand.)

I hope somebody picks up the torch on this one, as I think it would be interesting to play!

See the readme for complete details.

-----\File Description\-----
      The main file included in "Shooter.zip" is "Shooter.w3m" which is a Warcraft III Reign of Chaos map file.  This
          map file is an incomplete project I worked on for a while.  I wanted a Warcraft III maps to be more than just
          linear maps of strategy.  I decided to try to do something that no one else had done before.  The only thing I
          could think to do was try and make a first person shooter style map.  Although I succeded in numerous ways,
          I kept being dragged down by the numerous problems and bugs I was running into.  That is why I have decided
          to release this map to the public and other map makers that might be able to make better progress than I.  I
          don't have any desire to finish this map or even work on it any farther but it is a revolutionary idea that I would
          like to see someone finish.  If finished, it could be the closest anyone has come to making a true "Halo" map on
          Warcraft III.  (Note:  Only those experienced with Blizzard's World Editor software should attempt to finish the
          map.  There are some advanced triggers that an ametuer would not understand.)  At
          "http://warcraft3.filefront.com/", this map would fit best in the "Warcraft III > Maps > Trigger_Maps > Other"
          section.

      Progress (I will no longer be working on the map):
          I have created one character for Player 1 and one enemy.  About one quarter of the terrain is finished but some
          of it needs to be polished up a bit.

      In-Game Controls:
          The camera can be rotated in game by pusing "S" on the keyboard to rotate it left and "H" to rotate it right.
          To move, click on the ground in front of you.  To attack someone, click "A" and then on the unit that you would
          like to attack.

      Included also in "Shooter.zip" are four screenshots entitled "SScreen1.jpg", "SScreen2.jpg", "SScreen3.jpg", and
         "SScreen4.jpg".  Screens 1,2, and 3 are all in-game screen shots while screen 4 is a picture of the basic camera
         setup of the main character in Warcraft III WorldEdit.  The first three are 798x597 .jpg files at 70% resolution.
         Screen four is a 640x600 .jpg at 70% resolution also.

-----\Known Bugs\-----
      This section is for those that would like to work on the map themselves and see if they have the perseverance to
          finish what I could not.  So here they are, the bugs:
                1- On some of the camera rotates, the camera goes lower than the terrain.
                       Proposed Solution- I think messing around with the cameras in World Editor might do something.
                2- The computer crashes upon exiting the map file in Warcraft III.
                       Proposed Solution- No idea.
                3- The in-game camera is really twitchy.
                       Proposed Solution- Make the unit that the cameras follow have a collision size of zero.

-----\How to Set Up\-----
        In order to set up/install the map, you must copy or cut the map file to:
           "(X):/Program Files/Warcraft III/Maps/"  where (X) is your hard drive that Warcraft is installed to.  Then,
           open the map in either Warcraft III or Warcraft III World Edit.
