Races approval and [Tags]
« on: July 31, 2010, 09:00:39 AM »
This is mostly what I consider an approved race:
A) Interface compliant
B) Respect for other races (skill immunities) and uses the buff system
C) No excessive functions (EG making your own DealDamage instead of using War3_DealDamage)
D) Well tested.
E) Well Balanced according to the default races.
F) Detailed skill descriptions "Deals 100-300 damage and stuns enemies for 1.75-3 seconds"

Use OnWar3LoadRaceOrItemOrdered2(num) for race loading

Do not upload a .smx version

Tags: these can stack
[Approved] - You can run this Race without fear of major bugs, coding is mostly clean.
[Balance Issue] - Race may be extremely hard to play, or a few people can keep rack up high kdrs once they are in the right situation
[Whacky] - Wacky non standard gameplay
[Weapons] - This race gives you weapons
[Knife Race] - This race is a knife race
[Incomplete] - Race is not yet well coded or partially coded or has major bugs

other tag would be self explanatory

[Unapproved] - Other reasons were given to unapprove this race (copycat race, unimplementable, overpowered)
[Packaged] - Race is approved and included in subsequent war3source releases. It may have been modified. Decision to package is decided by Ownz.

How long does it take to get approval?

A friend of mine just started creating new races for another server and is currently testing them at this time.  He told me that I'd have to wait until it's approved by war3source before I can get a copy to use.

If races are released they aren't instant approved! It may takes a while cuz ownz(w3s head devel) needs Time to Check the Code and Test the race.. If everything went correct and your race has actually some unique things or whatever.. it probably get approved

the decision is at ownz ;)
