      Hello! I've been making a cinematic for a while, and there's a scene where the boss attacks a structure. However I don't know exactly what effect I should place on the building (where and when the projectile hits it):
      https://gfycat.com/FixedThickGoldfish

      Do you have any suggestion to replace those lava crack effects? Sorry for asking randomly this questions.

        Those lava cracks are actually doodads, but that's a very nice suggestion. I'll do that.

        Indeed, I should reduce the shake camera effect. I am very clumsy on editing cinematic, because I generally start to add something, then I stop in the middle of it and change to another part.

        Rufus, i really like the 'hosted maps' update. It looks great in the grid, maybe the actual map listings should be changed from the forum look to some sort of a grid as well? [Maps & Resources>Maps>Grid view?] Just a random thought. :P

        I think it would be a bit confusing having all maps in boxes like that. in addition to that, none of the other maps have icons or forums attached to them, and displaying all of their data in that box would be really ugly. :)

      Hey, I forgot to say one more thing about your Tropic Tomb map:

      That little guy decided to swim, however it doesn't know how to.

        I noticed that the FPS doesn't really drop. Since the beginning of the game, I had around 40 - 60 fps. At times, it dropped to 32 (Near the whirl + dust effects falling from the ceiling).

        There's another part where I needed to escape from the tomb, but I got stuck in a river with a lot of spikes/traps. I missed the left path where I should have turned. The water/slide speed was faster than my hero, so I died there.

        Oh, there's another thing that I almost forgot (as usual lol): The mini-boss (?)/"little" crab does not attack me if I get in its room and attack it right away with a catapult. (Farther than 800 range)

        Cool thread the first one!

        I haven't checked the gold mines and other standard balancing things, but I can see that the terrain need some work. Use the higher /lower tool more, for example.

        The middle weeds doodad are not quite fitting the terrain either. It is ugly on the white terrain.

        I see.
        You should post your map in the map development forum instead then, since the map section is for maps that have come further. You defenitely must have tested your map yourself before uploading it to the maps section. :)

      I've played Bonechiller Burrow and Forest Temple, and, man... those bosses are way harder, specially the one from Forest Temple. I enjoy both of them, mainly because they are longer, and that Ice-themed level is very well made. hahaha I'll play them a little bit more later, because I got obliterated by the bosses.

      Hello, Rufus! I've been thinking of that extra regeneration in your map, and I thought it'd be a good idea to change it a little bit by adding some regeneration rate + delay to it. For example: As soon as the hero starts regenerating HP, you set the regeneration rate to 0%, then increase it gradually. Let's say it would take around 5 seconds to recover its full potential. Here's a little gif of it:

        Very bra Svenska.
        I've been to FInland once! Kellekoski and Helsinki (Helsingfors in Swedish)
        I actually visited a school then, but I wasn't there long enough to get a good insight in your system.

        I heard that you guys have the really good PISA results, right?
        We seem to have very different school systems. :D

        Well learning Swedish is obligatory here, guess I did learn couple of phrases from the classes.
        I suggest Estonia over us: cheap beverages. If you're ever to Tallinn I might be there, come say hi, I'm the drunk Finn.
        Ha, I bet they had to come up with something positive when introducing the school you visited, better shine with PISA since they happen to be high for some reason.

    Hi! My name is Rufus Lindskog.
    I'm the guy on the right.

    In Reality
    My real-life profession is to be a street-entertainer. I set up shows with
    magic, juggling and comedy, trying to create a good atmosphere and
    make people have a good time, to ultimately make them put golden
    coins in my humbly outstretched hat.

    Sweden, where I live, is a bad place for street-performing though, as the
    people generally isn't used to performers. It is not in our culture.
    Thyerefore, I travel around the world, putting up shows in places I visit.
    On the time I am writing this, I have performed in 16 countries and
    24 citys.

    If you want to know more about me as a performer, you can check out
    the links below.

    On the Hive
    In the warcraft community, I try to contibute with useful feedback and
    encouraing comments, which has made me a map reviewer. I try to stay
    friendly at all times, and keep my head cold during debates, to avoid
    ending up just insulting each other, instead of actually getting a
    good solution.

    I also like to create and market my own projects, my latest being
    the Warden campaign.
    The warden project have been a lot of fun as it has a really wide variety
    of concepts put together. I'm pretty satisfied with what I have created so
    far, and I have a lot of ideas for upcoming maps. My main struggle is
    putting them together in a nice way.
