07/25/09: Some sounds found for the map. Big progress on terrain.
08/06/09: More progress on the terrain (Forest done, which is around 1/6 of the map). I'd like to thanks all the members of SEN community which helped me out :D Also, I've done the first's boss area and it seems like MetalGear, my partner, is dead, so I'll do my own triggers.

--- Similar to SpellSword's drop system

Waypoint Casting system (WCs)
--- 3 spells per player
--- Each spell will be associated to a WC hotkey and a supplementary unit

Equipment System
--- Similar to SpellSword's equipment system though it will be more "armor" related

AI System
--- The 3rd player, which is a computer (NPC), will have its own AI which will permit him to have his own spells
--- Bosses will also have their own AI and spells

Battle System
--- vHP for heroes
--- None for bosses
--- High control over the battle issues based off the armor
--- Spells casted (via WCs) will deal damages based off the Direct Damage system

honestly thats it? I mean all you have is story? What do you plan to use in your game? As in what cool stuff can we do? spells? systems? components? honestly i think this needs a little more work. One screenie shouldn't be enough for this to be posted especially since it contains nothing about the game except a line of text and a tree.

By the way your story is littered with mispelled words and poor grammar. Could we use spell check next time? To me it feels like you just emptied your head all in one post, quickly went into the editor made a simple piece of land and a text trigger and said "boom i started this map everyone take a look."

That's probably what happened, and if you haven't realized already he isn't a native english speaker. I imagine it will have a lot of dynamics his scrapped Diablo 2 project had, though really payne you should elaborate.

so this is what you were working on when you were too busy for me =)
seem interesting by the story, obviously you should go into more detail on spells/ideas/etc, as said in previous posts, and I'll be checking back to see that :)

:payne:

In fact, I just wanted to be sure I'd have something with a minimum of depth to work with so I did the storyline. Next step is terrain; I want to be sure that I can make it fit the storyline and then, once that's done, I'll start working on the systems so yes, so far, nothing much planned for the interesting part for map makers, sorry ^^
As Kaias have said, I should use many things I had planned for my D2 map ^^
Sorry for posting something without many informations.

By the way, the tree in the screenshot isn't the ToG :P It's that I had found that the actual blend of this corner could act as a trunk.
The Tree of Genesis should look much more like something like this:


EDIT: Btw, spell check found no error in my text except "lol" and "ToG"...

[quotepayne]A messenger of the King (name = ?) comes to query(1) each player at their living place saying the king is convoking(2) all his fellows(3) for an important speech.

1. Strange word choice since it means "to ask". If the king wanted everyone there, he would have commanded them, not asked.
2. Not a commonly used word, although it fits.
3. Since it is the king, the better term would be "subjects", since "fellows" makes it sound like the players and king are on the same level, when the king is likely higher.
4. Just "King" will do here. The 's should be removed, as it makes no sense.
5. Obscure = unclear. Not the most scary term. Try using a stronger word, such as horrible, horrifying, or devastating.
6. Remove "actually", it is unnecessary and somewhat confusing.
7. It's "it's", not "its". its = something that it owns, it's = it is
8. Should be "worse and worse", not "worst and worst".

I could find more, but I won't unless you ask me to.

Seems interesting, only problem is that tree is in the Diablo map.

this wasn't at all to what i was refering. I didn't understand why he could use complex words but couldn't use basic ones. Tail was used to say he told someone a story. The correct word should be tale. He also used worst and worst for worse and worse. Those are just a couple of examples.

Wasn't trying to affend you. Keep working on your english you are doing well. try grammar checks if your program has them. they may help fix some of your problems. Spell checkers won't catch many of the errors you have. English language is a pain because there are so many rules. "i before e except after c" is the rule that tells it all lol. This is always try except in this case lol. stupid english.

I've got a rough of the final copy although it took my a while to make this, it's still subjected to change.
Well Each Tree Took About 45 Mins deducting the time i spent watching tv (Total 2 - 3 hourish)
I'm still working on some custom blends for my own pet project(s)
So Far I've Got
(Warning Huge Pictures) Click On Pics To See Epic Image(s) ;)

Best Project So Far (Working on Larger Trunk) (8X9) (Still A Bit Chunky XD)"I Like My Soup Chunky", Chunky Sirlon Soup Fills You Up Right"
Collapse Box


Treeless (No Leafs) - Closed & Open Respectively (12 X 18) Pre 1 Tree
Collapse Box


Regular Tree (Leafs) - Closed & Open Respectively (12 X 18) Pre 1 Tree
Collapse Box


This Took Apx 1H 30 Mins ;(

Edit : Using the base idea from the other tree's i've managed to create another tree I'm still working on...
(Very Rough Stages) Even so ill give my older versions if you like so you work with it and see what comes out.
Sorry I Can't give it out though (If it takes me more then a few hours ill keep for myself) but ill give you another variation of it if you like.
Just because it takes so much work to terrain something this big.

Just here for the pie

Just out of curiosity, is the tree supposed to be like the Deku Tree in Ocarina of Time?




Jul 1 2009, 6:52 am Tempz Post #16



XD, as of now i never heard to Deku til I google'd it.
Anyways no because the top leafy part is too large on deku.
As well as the fact Deku has a face.

I was trying to go more of a "Baku Tree"
Baku Is more or less Deku's Rival - More ominous but there generally the same

Very long and interesting storyline. I look forward to this map's completion, and if I can be of some assistance along the way I'd be happy to help.

Anyone that wants to help me out might want to take a look here. ;)
And thank you for all your support :D I'm working hard to learn english well since it's so useful ^^ By the way, I can tell you French is even worse in terms of (so it's worse, not worst heh?) exceptions and rules :S ;P
