For this project we needed to do a lot of research, we first looked at different games for reference.
In the end we settled for 'Warcraft 3' but without the building part of the game cause we knew that
the core gameplay will be hard to set up for this type of project.
We collected the different mechanics 'Warcraft 3' as well as the different types of missions the game had.
We also learned new programs such as World machine to build our levels and atom to get a better overlook
at our scripting.
When we worked on our levels we first had a paper planning phase, we pointed out missions, side-quests and
the majority of playable areas. After the top-downs were made we started working with the terrain tools in
Unity 3D, when we had a rough level done inside Unity we exported the level and imported the map into World machine.
Inside World machine we added different types of filters such as world erosion to get the world natural flow.
Then we exported the map from World machine and went back to Unity, back in Unity we started placing models and
made smaller changes to the terrain to fit the game more.
With experience from before where we worked in layers we also applied it to this project as well, this is because
of the camera, we didn't want to have an up and down movement on the camera itself cause it made our playtesters confused and a little bit motion sick.
We had to freeze the camera in place so we had layers to work with so the terrain does not interrupt with our camera or the gameplay.
The funniest moment for me in this project was all the scripting I was honored to work with, I could spawn enemies,
move objects and make pings on the minimap. I felt that I could control and make a unique battle in many places even
when I was working with smaller number of models or units.
