Hi all, second attempt at a map. As I've mentioned before, my drawing skills are horrible, so this map is an attempt to play to my strengths and I tried to make it fit in with the colourful world of Hedgewars, although I know its still not perfect.

...What about the constraints of the hedgewars graphic style?

Well having created and played it, I can say you're wrong Smile

Whether you like it is another issue, but no need to undermine the process! Thanks

Edit: And just to expand, I mean, you've got a handful of people here making standard maps, and they all look awesome and fantastic, so what's the harm in someone trying something a little bit different? I've never been one to conform, but that doesn't mean I don't want to try!

I have played it online with a few friends on several occasions Smile

It has its problems, such as usually one hedgehog will spawn in a very tight spot which could be considered a disadvantage, but I do love how you can get grenades between the gaps to throw out of or into that space.

It's also very fun watching someone more skilled than myself fly all the way around the map with crazy ninja rope skills.

So, I don't want to say it's not without its small faults, but I certainly enjoy playing it. Big Grin

As for how I made it - I knew before I started I wanted to make a crazy liquidy effect that would work for a map, and I acheived that using Realflow 4.0 and 3DS Max. What effectively was done, is the word Hedgewars! was created out of water particles, then given certain properties (such as a very low internal and external pressure to replicate a gas like behavior), and then simulated for 50 frames at quite a high frames per second. The word Hedgewars sort of slowly rose and blew out in all directions, and then I meshed it together, cut it up a little bit and brought a couple of chunks back into Photoshop and made a level with a few graphical touches in an attempt to bring it closer to hedgewars style.

I like the overall layout of this map.
It should be redone in a way that it meets the style requirement of hedgewars so that it can be taken into the offical game release Smile

Constructive feedback or go elsewhere please. Whether you like it or not, it took time.

I'm quite sure it took time. Maybe even all of five minutes. Just because it took you a long time to make doesn't automatically make it worth posting.

Pointless, ugly map, and unplayable to boot. Happy now?

Five minutes? Are you being purposely ignorant or does it come naturally? As for pointless ugly and unplayable, I'm able to play it and as for ugly/pointless I respect your opinion.

I will say this: if people got put off everytime some prick came and posted trash talk on the internet we wouldn't get very far Big Grin

Edit: And just incase you genuinly are clueless about the timescale, I'll tell you - it took seven hours including simulation times - there we go, no more excuse for that ignorance Smile

It looks like just a bunch of paint splodges so I thought 5 minutes was a reasonable guess.

I couldn't draw a map if my life depended on it, so I respect you for trying. But I honestly would be *very* surprised if this were to be included.

I'd be suprised if it was to be included too, because it's too off from the style (although I tried to connect it) - but if people like playing something a bit different there's no harm in downloading it, playing it and enjoying it with friends? It doesn't have to be all or nothing?

And if you look at it, it's not just plaint splodges. If you look closely you'll see it was made in 3D (so it wasn't drawn (I can't draw to save my life either), but rather it was created).

Thanks

Okay, that did sound rude and I apologize.

Just thought you were expecting to see the map included is all, because it doesn't really meet the criteria. If you and your friends (and anyone else here on the forum) enjoy playing it that's all that really matters. Smile

Though the rendered nature of the image keeps me from putting it in Hedgewars (if you can solve that, my feelings would change). I do like the map and will definitely spend some time playing it online.

The only reason we won't include it is because we do require all maps to match a specific style (but I think you knew that already). To have Hedgewars come across as a complete project when finished.

No problem I understand Big Grin

I'm glad some people enjoy it, even if it's a bit loopy.

I have an idea for my next attempt, which will hopefully combine something like this much closer with the hedgewars style. There's no doubt a long term goal would be to create a map that both represents my style and fits in perfectly with the hedgewars game - it might take a while but I have fun along the way, and if each attempt provides an extra map for a few people who like it, then that's a bonus Smile

Thanks for the great feedback everyone!

Hey guys sorry I haven't been here for a while, in fact it's just by chance I figured I'd come and check up here. I'm glad to see that some people would like to play it, although I recall it having some mixed feedback at the time ^^

Truth is, the map is long gone. Got erased when I reformatted my hardrive a few weeks ago. But, if theres an interest in it, I can always make another similar one Smile

I don't have the time to learn how to make maps in hedgewars style (unfortunately), but if it just so happens that some people like a little bit of crazy and this sort of style, I think that's great and I'll certainly have a go at making some more.

Thanks,
Fallenoaks

someone here probably still has the map and if they were a kind person they could upload it and we could all have fun playing it.

Every map is different so it wouldn't be the same so more fun!
