    posted a message on Yet another medieval city... (Update 6 - 26.04.2014)
    Looks pretty good for "yet another medieval city", especially when you take into consideration that fly wasn't used during its creation. Each little house is unique and tastefully detailed, and collectively they make for a very charming village. Very nice work!

    Goodness, that thing is massive! Designing the roof must have been a nightmare. You did a fantastic job on it though, beautiful work on the detailing and block palette too.

    Jigglypuff, so I can blind opponents with my .

    Aside from Jiggy, I like Kirby because he's easy to control and for a light-weight is a fairly heavy hitter, and Ike because all of his attacks have the launching capabilities of a hammer.

    Quote from Pikimon_2

    Thank you! Yeah we actually had to remove an entire section of the map because it was too parkour ish, originally in Chapter 3 there was supposed to be a portion of the map that looked like the Great Wall of China. Mind if we put your post on the front page?


    Sure, I don't mind. It's kind of a shame that you had to cut a section of the map from the adventure; you should have kept it in as a side quest or a bonus area at the end. If nothing else, at least it would offer plenty of eye-candy. :)

    Wow, 64 jade was the total in the map? :o I had 63 at the end.

    Wholly molly, what a map!

    The visual experience offered in this adventure is like none other. Up, down, or straight ahead: wherever you look, your eyes are constantly being bombarded with wave upon wave of detail. Always, the player has to decide whether to gawk at the beauty of the verdant forest ground cover, gaze up at the looming cliff faces coated with masks, swords, cascading waterfalls, pottery, and all manner of Eastern knick-knacks, look down at the colorful carpets with oriental patterns, or, perhaps most important of all, at the oncoming army of malevolent, kimono-clad, fan-wielding zombie geishas.

    The story too is thoughtfully crafted and adds significantly to the map's experience. The large collection of characters that you meet along your journey all have well-written dialogue, and the side-quests that they oftentimes provide serve as fun and rewarding diversions from your main goal of waking up.

    The gameplay is the only area of this map that felt a little lacking. Most of the challenges were limited to combat and parkour, with occasional Chinese history questions and target shooting. Now what was there was well done: combat was challenging, but not impossible, loot was parceled out in sparing but sufficient fashion, and the jumping was quite fun and smooth- you couldn't help but feel like some martail arts movie star as you leaped from platform to platform :D . Still, this is a long adventure, and combat and parkour get a little old by the end of it. It would have been nice if there were a few more kinds of challenges like puzzles and speed runs.

    Nonetheless, this map still provides an immensely entertaining and unique experience. I'd say the map-makers' eight months of hard work has payed off well, for I've been playing adventure maps for a while now, and have never in the many maps I've completed seen a world as immersive and beautifully detailed as this one.

    Those landscapes are breath-taking, especially the coniferous forest pictured in the post above. The towering trees definitely add a quiet, secluded ambience to the little town nestled beneath them.

    Is this server open to guests? This is one of my favorite projects circulating around the forums right now, and I would love to get an up-close look at some of the gorgeous creations pictured in your screenshots.

    Looking spectacular so far! All of the buildings are fantastic; each one seems unique and just loaded with detail! The way they're incorporated into the world is both intriguing and scenic too. Love the multi-tiered layout of the nordic village and the solitary location of the fortress on the rock.

    Very challenging and entertaining map! Love how rather than including a bunch of 'magical helper' signs that spoon-feed you guidance and solutions, you left most of the discovering and puzzling solving to the player, with optional help from a solutions book if the player needed it. Really makes those 'Ah-hah!' moments extra satisfying.
    The visual magic you accomplished with the texture pack is also very impressive. I found myself punching moss off of walls just to see what it was made of, and was surprised to find that it was composed from a complex tile set of paintings. Little aesthetic details like that are prevalent throughout the map, and really add to the map's uniqueness and enjoyability.

    I can tell you put a lot of time and effort into this adventure. Your investment was well worth it, for this is one of the funnest maps I've played in a while. :)

    posted a message on Altare de Patria (Altar of the Fatherland) - with some artistic liberties taken ;)
    Well, for a 'first REAL build', this is flat out spectacular. Beginner builds typically aren't adorned with a plethora of architectural minute details, grand inter-connected waterways, and beautiful gardens with hand-crafted trees. Needless to say, your monument here has all three and then some!

    The only criticism I can find with this creation is that the building is made with only one material. Now, it could be you designed it this way because that's the way the original monument this is based off looks, but I feel that the addition of a few more colors and textures will really help shapes to stand out and significantly increase the visual interest of the build.

    Like what Eldon said, these densely packed, richly detailed villages are a favorite of mine. Great work so far! Looking forward to seeing what new features you plan to add next.

    Creative writing. Doesn't help that I absolutely, positively, HATE doing it.

    Understanding people with accents is also something that I seem to fail at.

    posted a message on The Cat Thread
    Once upon a time, whenever I'd sit on my front porch, 6 or 10 cats would appear and hang out with me. They'd either curl up in the grass nearby, or come to the porch to be pet and possibly make a prime nap spot out of my lap. It was great.

    Then animal control came and took them all away. Twas for the best, as the guy who owned them had neither the financial nor physical ability to take care of them... but still... ;_; (they were taken to a no-kill shelter, and shortly after were all placed in good homes.)

    Ooooh, you're starting another adventure map! I enjoyed your Power of Kings series. So many beautiful landscapes. And interiors! Lots and lots of lovely interiors. That, and a cookie in every furnace! :lol:

    Judging from the pictures, it looks like your going to be using your proficient building and decorating skills in this map too. I'm looking forward to playing it when it's released. :)

    posted a message on [ADV] [1.6.2] Secret of the Keepers v1.3
    I finally made my way through to the end, and I must say... this is one extremely beautiful, well-crafted map. Almost all of the challenges in it (except at the end) were parkour. However, it was the right kind of parkour; the kind that involves trying to find your way through a vast ancient city, jumping from crumbling edge to crumbling edge, while struggling to keep track of where you're at in the metropolis' maze-like tangle of pathways and tunnels. The quality of the builds scaled up dramatically throughout the map, and towards the end some of the sights were quite breath-taking. Redstone and spawner mechanisms were plentiful, and all functioned like a charm. And the final challenges were quite difficult and epic, albiet a switch from the parkour-intensive gameplay before.

    I did accidentally skip the second half of the crystal powering by leaping to and climbing up a cave column into the chamber above. Other than that though, everything played out perfectly, and I had a grand time completing your fantastic adventure. : )

    posted a message on Villa Aestate - Italian Luxury Home - DL Available
    Aye, this section of the forum is slow as molasses. Usually on a weekend, about half a page of new posts are added; compare that to the activity of a section like 'maps', where 3-5 pages of new replies appear daily...

    Tis a shame, because it means that spectacular looking projects like this 'Villa Aestate' don't get a fraction of the attention they deserve. This really is an incredible build... I'm in love with those hand built trees that occupy the environs of the mansion. They look so grand and natural- much more impressive then the bulk of cylindrical custom trees that people typically make. The mansion too is a sight to behold. The building's shape is neither boringly geometric nor chaotically random, but rather a perfect balance between the two. The interior is wonderful as well; there's just enough colors and furnishings to break up the flat areas without losing that appealing clean and simple look.

    You two did a fantastic job on this mansion! I just wish more people would comment on and promote beautiful, creative builds like this.
