OVERWATCH STATUS GO

Here's are some simple templates for anyone looking to make a Map Production thread but can't figure out an interesting way to convey information about their map.

As a side note, screenshots are a big part of Production threads. Adding screenshots usually shows that your map is well under way, not just another spur-of-the-moment idea for a map which may never see day light in reality. In short, screenshots can mean the difference between a topic that gets attention and one that gets none. Don't just get a picture of a minimap view of the terrain, either; use the PrintScreen key to get some good shots of actual gameplay when you're testing out your map.




MAP NAME
Brief description about the map. If this map is an RPG, perhaps include some backstory. If its a Defense, maybe include a brief description of what we'll see in the map that makes it spectacular.

NudeRaider -- Dem0n
Dem0n shouted: who said you were crossing a line
NT kinda did Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet shouted: I always thought it was kind of messed up to impersonate someone without their permission, but I guess that's artistic license for you. When you get into the realm of using AI to do it.. it seems even worse to me, but I'm not sure why
[2023-12-08. : 8:38 pm]
Zoan -- and tbh no, this is exactly the type of thing ai should be used for. Now if you were monetizing it, I would say you should emohasize you used ai for the voicelines
[2023-12-08. : 8:29 pm]
Zoan -- he asked if "am I now crossing a line"
[2023-12-08. : 7:43 pm]
Dem0n -- who said you were crossing a line
[2023-12-08. : 2:24 pm]
Oh_Man -- but if i want to make a LOTR map and use AI generation to give aragorn etc more voice lines am I now suddenly crossing a line? wen did we get so snowflakey
[2023-12-08. : 2:23 pm]
Oh_Man -- well we been doing dodgy stuff in SC for ages playing resident evil and helms deep maps - we dont own the rights to them
[2023-12-06. : 8:46 pm]
Ultraviolet -- NudeRaider
NudeRaider shouted: Ultraviolet absolutely. You can count me among those folks. ;) But I understand it. It's a silly name only kids find funny. However to know that and still own it that would be the manliest move in my eyes.
Yeah, I can appreciate that perspective. I've used so many handles over the years, I think I had less attachment to NerdyTerdy than some of the folks here. Just never changed my name much here cause it was expensive :P I still kind of like the NT name, but definitely prefer Ultraviolet. I think UV has been my handle for around half my life at this point O.o
[2023-12-06. : 6:34 pm]
NudeRaider -- So the question is will we as a society become resilient against these forms of attacks? Either by detecting or accepting? Find new ways to deal with it? I guess we will have to wait and see.
[2023-12-06. : 6:32 pm]
NudeRaider -- da real donwano
da real donwano shouted: Society is not ready for the AI power we're being given. I'll die on that hill.
"social media" is imo a much better example for "society was not ready for it". We haven't seen yet where AI will lead us. It has a lot of potential for good, but then again, so had social media. For now the only potential for abuse in AI that I see is in forgery of various kinds.
[2023-12-06. : 6:26 pm]
NudeRaider -- Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: guys what are your thoughts on AI voice cloning vs someone doing impressions. why is one moral and the other immoral? or do you think both are fair game
For me it's the intent that make the difference, not the method. If you copy someone for profit or harm, then that's immoral. If your goal is satire then all bets are off. I think people are just afraid to be deceived because AI removes skill from the equation and painting AI usage as immoral is their weak attempt to defend against it.
