<<Music starts to play....the theme from "The good the bad and the ugly">>

<<BarStar rolls a cigar....squints at mb>>

<<Barstar snaps a match....lights cigar....pauses....>>

<<Barstar spits on mb's boot >>

<<Barstar looks over at Drifter......looks back at mb.....whispers loudly>>

You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig.

<<Barstar turns walks toward Drifter...>>

If you're going to have the rivers as barriers, should they be running through the countries like that? :?

That looks absolutely fabulous BarStar, nice job - looking forward to its release! I'll bet a hamper of figs that st00pid mbauer must be feeling pretty darn inadequate now and won't be making any more of his weedy Castle maps in a hurry.

purple and orange castles look like the ones that you would be stuck with if you are 5th or 6th to place....

He's got a point. Those rivers look pretty measly. How about some big rushing rivers as the barriers where there's room.

Ok luxers....


Since you all have been so jazzed about this map I decided to keep you all in the loop. All the positive energy has given me the motivation to crank on this thing.

I just started the coding....here is an early test. Notice how cool the new medeival army graphics look on this map. So figgin cool. Nice addition Dustin!

Also notice the castles. When you the player take over a castle your color fills the "top" flag thus creatiing your own "coat of arms" for each castle. And it looks so cool when the castles "glow" and fade in and out when attacking or fortifying. OH, and this is cool too. Since each castle is a cont. when the castle is taken over the new color "fades in" and looks sooooo figgin cool...

more to come....and YEA!

∞ SunTzu is still recovering in the hospital after TorStar sent it's semi-evil minions to take him out. Luckily, the st00pid minions only gave him carpal tunnel and tennis elbow in both arms. He will soon be back with a vengeance to wreak havoc on those bratwurst sucking harem dancers from Chicago... ∞

OK, ready for BETA TESTERS!

It's DONE, and available in the plug-ins as BETA. You wont see it in your Plug-ins unless you have downloaded the new beta lux update and have typed in:

/set showBetaMaps

in your chat window.

If you do this it should show in your plugger window...

More about this in detail can be found here:

http://sillysoft.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=10559


And here are the final screen grabs...

You can see how it evolved. If anyone is interested in looking at my .PSD file feel free to contact me and i'll send it out. It could help some of you noob map makers to see how it unfolded and pick it apart....

FYI the final layered .PSD file is 25.7MB :shock: :shock: :shock:

I hope you enjoyed this journey thru map making.....

and YEA!


OH, and.....

MB....take THAT! This should teach you to make a bogus pickle pirate map.....
