    No one have anything to say?

    Do you like or hate this map? Why you like or hate it? What you think of it?

    Do you have any suggestions to improve this map?

    Try adding some more details in the lava like rocks,stones and stuff to make it look nicer because right now its pretty much empty in the lava tongue.gif

    I'll keep that in mind when I make a new patch.

    I dunno, it seems too red. Maybe give the light a little more orange/yellow tint in it, for visual variety.

    God I hate playing this map!

    I love how it looks though! I like the style! Where else haven't the pirates, vikings and knights fought? In hell!


    My problem with the map is a lot of the open areas are perfect for archers atop the structures. Sometimes it's tough to get to the top of the structure without getting pelted by even more arrows. Specifically one area of the map to climb to the structure archers like to snipe from, you need to climb a ladder masked by shadow or the ladder is just part of the wall.

    Welcome to hell a.k.a archer heaven

    Thank you for this excellent feedback Mario.

    It seems I have to add more defences to block archers arrows on open areas.
    I never had trouble with archers but I mostly play classes that have shields.


    Right now I'm working on other map but when it's ready I'll start working this map again.

    I started working on this map again few days ago and here's some results.

    I never liked this part of map cause it was too dull and simple so I replaced ladders to stairs.

    Many players have complained about this tower because that was like archers camping base and you were easy target when trying to climp up.

    More screens coming probably tomorrow!

    Post freely to tell what you think of these changes.

    I'm unsure why you've gone for the cloudy sky. I think the red fog made it feel more like hell.

    I'd like to see more lighting sources, the lighting/fires seem very far and few between

    That's because I just compiled one part of map but when I compile final version it should look like in beta 4.

    Good idea with the spiral staircase, much better than the old ladders.

    Looks very good!
    An idea; Rocks sticking up in the lava unconnected to the normal pathways, merely for looks so you could fill out some of the large spaces of lava (well, not fill up, but fill it with something instead of just lava as far as the eye can see?)

    Just a thought tongue.gif
    btw, you would have to make sure those pesky archers never could get out there though!

    Sorry guys I cannot give you more screens for a while like I said because I'm going to the cottage with my friends.

    It looks like a map made for archers, no cover or whatever.

    No offense but I personally hate this map, its too dark and archers are complete fags in this map, never have I enjoyed playing this map.

    okay i think that he already knows that the achers is a problem as 99% of the posts are like "This map is faggotish because achers got a free look around"

    so now try to give something constructive instead of just "achers are fucktards"

    you could suggest stuff to do or add to the map or in the future how to avoid problems like this to happend...

    It's obvious that if archers rule the map, you should limit their abilities, by placing cover and limiting their backwards movement (twisting walkways).

    Trilobite speaks the truth. Cover needs to be added, badly.

    Yes I know that covers need to be added and I'm already working on it.

    If you don't mind me asking, how did you do the fireballs that seem to fall randomly?

    Well those fire balls are made by Env_cannon and there's Property named Course Variance that makes them shoot random direction.

    Thanks. That sounds like a simple solution to a problem I have been dealing with.

    It have been about tree weeks since I last time posted here but don't think that I have stopped working this map.

    Here is two dead tree models that I made for this map.

    The second tree, should get a bit more branches, it looks unnatural with so few branches yet it is quite thick looking.
