Also this weekend most likely I'll post a devblog on Illumina as well as some more content here. I've got some projects I need to release now and just haven't gotten to yet, with Senior year of high school and stuff like that getting in the way of mapping.
Hey y'all. I'm also going to be attempting to show off a few of the things I plan to release this weekend via teasers in the coming week. The first one should be tomorrow (Monday if you're in US Time, dunno how it will shake up in Europe/Asia). I've also provided ways to contact me via the CTMC Discord or a business email, although CTMC Discord is preferred, and I'd prefer if email isn't spammed. You can also contact me here by replying on the forum page, the above options are just for more general chat and more private conversations.
So Friday didn't happen... However, I have updated my forum page to tease and release a couple of upcoming projects!
I've been inclined to work on a Race For Wool map for the past month, so I've created a PVP section of maps on this forum! If I ever consider making more, I will publish them in the same section as well. The map is nearing completion, but unfortunately couldn't get done by this weekend.
I've also established a "Collaborative Projects" section. There you can find all projects I do not own, but have worked on. Links to the appropriate forum pages are found for all of them, instead of Downloads. However, I am currently hosting the CTM-C's 6th Quickfire. So that is a download link.
My CTM-C 2017 Christmas Advent map "Hyperborea" has also been released as Mini Legacy #3. It only features one objective, but its plenty long to stand as a Mini-Map.
Illumina is also coming along well. The map is taking much more time than I anticipated, so no beta is going to come before 1.13. The map will also be released in 1.13, which is being released in the Spring of 2018. The current hope is I can finish the map aesthetically and mechanically before 1.13 launches, and add in the commands after such. Then an open beta will launch on CTM-C's Discord.
Cya all, and will keep you updated as time goes on!
This weekend was CTMC's 18th Strawberry Jam, and the theme was "Mind Games".
I participated in this jam, and I created a map called "World of Anarchy". It is a 4 Objective Mini CTM.
In line with the theme, the "mind game" portion of the map is that it is a Roguelike themed map. This means that the main dungeon you play in resets and changes every few deaths, with a loss of items every now and then. Wools are contained inside "Challenge Dungeons" found inside the Roguelike. The Monument doesn't reset every regeneration though, so its not completely unforgiving.
It also has a lot of aspects of finding and upgrading gear, since the map is different each time.
This map is currently not released here, as its quite buggy and probably unbalanced, so I want to get some feedback on it first and polish it up before I release it here.
If you would like to play "World of Anarchy" simply join the CTMC Discord or visit it! (The link to which can be found via the front page of this thread.) The download is in the announcements channel there, and will be until it goes up on the forum. If you do download it, I would appreciate any feedback on how I can improve the map, as well as letting me know of any bugs you may encounter!
