Sea of Chaos - Prologue

Map Info


This is prologue of my upcoming rpg map Sea of Chaos from Forgotten Realms. You can visit forum here - http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/map-development-202/sea-chaos-sprpg-map-200682/. Story is about half-elf warrior Melsana Vel'Dyr and her memories about her adventures and strange evil visions.

PS: Sorry for huge size, but prologue is from campaign file, where is a playable map too and I didn't know, which imports I can delete.

    Comment: Story:

    I can't really tell what the story is all about yet, most of the cinematic was filled with combat scenes, but the evil creature in the end did make it more interesting. However this isn't very story focused, a character is just remembering all the creatures she has killed.

    Camera:

    The camera work is excellent, you can always see the important things, the camera sometimes even slows down during a killing blow and it is moving around a lot.

    Terrain:

    The environment looks amazing, you've used the high texture pack, everything is very detailed, it looks very realistic, especially the cliff hole in which Vel'dyr is. You've also used a lot of sound effects, especially for the river.

    Combat Scenes:

    The combat scenes are really intense and just look awesome, it's not just some guys hitting each other the whole time, but there are a lot of different moves, although some more überduper-special effects moves from the big guy would've been better. (in the chamber)

    Overall:

    It's a neat cinematic, with a high quality terrain and combat scenes, there are no small flaws, just it's not enough story-focused and there are some errors in the dialogues.

    Ain't campaign supposed to contain at least 2 maps? It should be released as simple map instead. Otherwise it is considered as not completed resource.

    Indeed.
    Unless you're going to release the next map very soon, then no action is required.
    If not, upload the only map as a single file and give it an appropriate map type. I'll delete this once you've done so.

    I can't. All of my imports are from campaign import manager.
    Is that a huge problem?

    Full Review

    This is truly an epic project, the intro cinematic was awesome and entertaining. However, it broke The Rules. This is currently a WiP of the entire campaign.

    Like the guys said above, do the separate maps.
    Sorry for the late feedback.

    Thanks for reply.
    As I said, this is only one playable map project in campaign file, so when I'll release the full project, it will have only prologue and one playable map, so it's not a campaign.

    People, are you serious? Have you never been working on a campaign file in your life?
    Just look how many imports he has in the map! Would you really have him re-import all of them from campaign import manager into map import manager, set all the paths for textures and objects in object editor etc.? Plus nobody actually cares about how it's done and it's a very boring work for a good few hours? And he's probably going to create more maps using the same campaign file, so he would have to do it like it's done now anyway?

    Hello,

    This is a nice map (in campaign's clothing), with pretty good combat scenes. The voices when the main character prayed (well, I assume she prayed) were something that surprised me a bit (positively).

    Downsides are the lacking of story and grammar errors, such as "allways" should be "always".

    Oh and the loading screen artwork was really impressive. :)

    4/5
