Super CIty Mall - Phaze I

Hiya SMASHers!

This week, Phase 1 of the Super City Mall has been released! Instead of 3 difficulty levels, we're raising the bar and releasing 4! (The different areas of the mall will have monsters at levels 5, 10, 15 and 20!) Boss Monster will be added in a later phase. Let us know of any monster bugs or balance issues on the AE Bug Tracker. (Become a Bug Hunter here:
Currently there are no weaknesses or elemental defenses. (Since there are no diseases in HeroSmash, what should zombies be immune to?) 
Wonderp Bread designed all the zombies and did most of the animation himself, so give him a /cheer! (Achievement unlocked!) 
Item drops will be apart of phase 2, with shops and quests coming after that. A member-only Arena is ALSO coming soon, where you can test future bosses earn rewards through a Points shop!

St Patrick's Day

This week we re-launched St Patrick's Day in the Park with some new items, so please do check those out!

Last week, though I was away, I found myself keeping in touch with Wonderp Bread and Polistar. I am glad I did as Wonderp (Bread) created a new monster "Zombie Terrornator". After a lot of tweaks to the look, it came out very cool. As the monster was being developed we learn how sound effects are done properly on monsters (I am hoping that what we learned will allow us to make SMASHables to have working sounds as well).

I have also finally found a way to deal with death lag on monsters which needs more refining. Now we have all the monsters designed for the mall, the Super City Mall will come out in phases:
Phase 1 - Mall and monsters; so we can test for issues with monsters.
Phase 2 - Storyline/Quests.
Phase 3 - Monster level balancing; to make that it is possible to raise level cap in the future.

Smashdome and Sneek Peak!

This week Smashdome has been update to same level of code and features as that of Overlook. Mall is coming together with the expanded areas. The new areas are designed for different levels of difficulty.

Here a sneak peek of the zombies (still few more being animated). Next week Thankgiving items are coming! Also this Friday at noon Nightwraith gear goes rare and fair-well to PumpCON for another year.

Question? instead of an empty lot during the times between Friday 13th and PumpCON, should there be a perm theme park?
