|Very nice man. Not sure how it will play but you definitelly did some good work. You should consider documenting your tricks sometime :P Some people could lean a lot from your map editing.|
|Thanks BF, appreciate the support. I have to be honest, I have considered documentation in the past, I even went so far as to start collecting footage of the map making process at one stage. However I am far from a quick worker, I laboriously poor over my maps for a considerable amount of time. Therefore the footage blew out to silly proportions, editing it still had it at stupid lengths so in the end I abandoned the work... Maybe somewhere down the line I will consider approaching the task again...I am not ruling out anything at this stage.|
|Well you dont really have to document every second. Just helpful tips for getting people started. Ive considered doing one myself. One thing I could learn from you however is Minimaps. Unbelievable work on this one. Also thats the one thing a lot of people don't do, is take the time. I wont mention names but some people just draw a heightmap of a simple design and throw down a few objects and release it in 20 mins and go to the next map. I enjoy taking my time and coming up with interesting little things to throw in as I go along and add as much detail as possible.|
|Well truth be told mate, I largely have Skope to thank for my mini mapping craft. I learn't a bucket load from reading this thread of his [LINK] From that thread I've just refined my technique and I tend to spend a lot of time emulating eden2 because I have always felt that map is the benchmark in all senses of the word. |
However you are right, I should pull my finger out and put pen to paper... Ill add it to the 'todo' list.
|Is that a cleverly masked skywalk at the top right waterfall I found Ane?|
|THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT|
if you don't know what a skywalk is, basically means it's where you can walk around the borders of the map.
|it's just like eden, same ideas basically good map imo|
|yup, much fun dudz. 2 fronts'n so on|
