Suggest names for a future pack of war3 tutorial maps!

Postby Ricky_Honejasi » Sat Oct 27, 2007 12:58 am

So my warcraft 3 tutorial maps are getting fairly close to a first official release and I will need a good name for the pack of them.

You can either suggest one or post about the one you like the most.

The current suggested names :

Newbie-to-Competent (by myself)
Be a Map King (DoW)
Everything about Mapmaking (DoW)
Mapmaking Lich King (DoW)

Ideally the name should :
1) Make it obvious that it is tutorial maps are mainly for newbies first and yet they will teach very far (ex : from like the simplest action to hardcore JASS).

2) The name should be relatively unique. You could search it via Google and find it in the first pages.

Other things to keep in mind :
1) The tutorials are mostly for the trigger editor although it will include a fair share of tutorials about the other editors. For example, it already got some good Object Editor tutorials and an early tutorial to import custom content via the Import Editor.

2) While I made all the current tutorials, other people will be able to contribute in various ways (as in not limited to make tutorial maps themselves).

3) The pack will include future "show-off" maps of various kinds which could include triggered spells, custom models, cinematics, JASS, etc. These "show-off" maps are less about teaching than to show what can be done or to show custom stuff.

4) Full open-source maps will be included for newbies to open and to learn from. For example, Keys of Sealing v2.20 open version if RazorclawX agrees to.

Could be an interesting name but :

1) The tutorial pack is intended to be initially shared for Campaign Creations and Samods. In addition, it might be on future sites although the main sites of the tutorials pack will stay as CC and SA.

2) "By Ricky" would imply that I would solo everything about it which I won't. :p

In all honesty, sometimes it might feel like the case.

Oh well ...

So far, I am tempted to name it :
Wc3NewbieMapper-to-Wc3CompetentMapper - Steps to Mapmaking in Warcraft III

... and "Wc3NewbieMapper-to-Wc3CompetentMapper" as the short name.

I tried to google and it sure doesn't show up any result for the short name and it's a name that pretty much give the idea behind it.

The rest of the names got their interest (except Mesk's ones for the obvious reason).

So any more suggestions or maybe votes on a name?

Suggestions from the SA sister thread :

Powers of The Lick King - Steps to Mapmaking in Warcraft III (Phoenix-IV)
Become an Hero - The Guide to becoming an hero in mapmaking (Wibod)
Lick Like the Lick King - How to Out-Lick Your Opponents (Mesk)
Pony Wrangler Xtreme - WRANGLE THOSE PONIES CLETUS! (Mesk)
