Map Work In Progress Thread

[size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt]WORK IN PROGRESS - MAPS[/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size]

This is the thread where you can get C&C (Comments and Criticism) on your maps! it works just like the one in the army section

1. When asking for help in this thread, please note that the people posting are doing you a favour by going out of their way to help you with something they could just leave for others to deal with. With this in mind Do not take criticisms as a personal attack and be sure that before arguing against someone who has proposed a possible change, that you are absolutely positive that what they have suggested goes against your original intentions. If you are seen to be unjustifiably defensive, your posts will be subject to moderation.

2. This is more to those who are posting to give comments and criticism. If you're just going to tell a member how bad/good their sprite is, Don't Bother this isn't a compliment or bashing thread, it is a place for people to come who need help on sprites, or who want to know if anything is wrong with their sprite. So please, if you're posting, give the help that the people have asked for. Your posts, if flame-baiting in nature, will be subject to moderation.

Omega & Spartan! Bring me back to life!
Your topic is the reason for my account to "PW". I have maps but no one likes. No one says or does not play. Yes, I know it's sad.
Now that's about to change. Tomorrow will show you what we have!

Re: Work In Progress Thread

Well it's hard me to comment on it as it's quite a w.i.p, but from what you've done I like it a lot!

The floating islands give multiple levels of combat, and I haven't seen a good map with floating islands in a long time.

It seems a bit empty in the middle of the map though, where the flat bit of land is. Maybe add a cabin or something.

I have some work and maybe I can ask a fellow to scan them then see what gets ready, now I have a lot of classes, and it's hard to get a decent to these things. On leaving school have a lot to fix!

Re: Work In Progress Thread

Too many stars, the stars don't vary in strength and that sand couldn't support a cave of any sort or it would collapse.
The land in general could use some sort of vegetation.
Staligites only form on limestone rock, not dirt. They also tend to be a whiteish colour rather than the colour of the surrounding rock.
If the trench in the beach is natural then it shouldn't be possible, the looseness of sand or the tide would destroy it. If it is artificial then it should have some sort of support such as wooden bracers.
You also need a rock base for that entire map.
Due to the way water tables work that entire cave should be submerged in water: so either flood it or raise it to a higher elevation.
the water level seems a bit random, either have it flat or put more noticeable waves or ripples in it.

Thanks, I'll get back to work on it.

Also, the holes were supposed to be from bombardments on the beach, but I guess I should darken them up some to show that

Re: Work In Progress Thread

Yeah, I wasn't kidding when I said I haven't touched paint in over a year. I'm surprised I still remember a picture needs some sort of shading  :v:

[Image: beach21.png]

Bit of a rushed attempt with all the "social interaction" I have to do today.
I'm aware it's not completely fixed. I think the grass should be darker.

Re: Work In Progress Thread

Perhaps add a few rocks to the dirt and make the rock line rougher. Normally water isn't shaded, but if you made it more like a background, that'd be acceptable (for example, the water in the little cave already has a background, so it should be a darker shade of blue).

Make the grass more saturated and the dirt lighter.

Took me a little while to get started as I woke up pretty late, but I'm now spending my time working on it. I have sketches on paper and I'm following them.

Re: Work In Progress Thread

Are you sure you don't want some help with it? We can all provide props and buildings etc and so some work on it. I really don't want to sound like a bitch but to say how long you've been working on it I expected a little more then a mountain :v:
That said its a nice mountain and I trust that the rest of the map wil be of that high standard Smile

Don't worry, I understand why you'd expect it to be more. I was just bogged down with work for the past week. I'll be getting a lot done today, and I'd appreciate it if props were provided.

I could contribute some backdrop props, if necessary. Vehicle wrecks, and such.

In terms of props, I could use burnt out wreckages, all terrain vehicles, and I would greatly appreciate it if someone could sprite some Dogon mud huts. After I finish up with the cliff, I'll make some sand dunes.

First off water tables. The water doesn't need to be able to flow in, after a certain depth there is just water. It saturates the rock, sand and dirt. Everything below the dotted line will have water.

Second, craters: Instead of that trench have a darker colour at the background. Also have various debri that might have been flung up and landed back in the crater.

What I've got so far. I think I'm pretty much done with the cliff, so I'm moving on to the sand dunes.
