      Not trying to be a jackass or anything, but you *almost* got the grammar perfect on the map thing. *almost* D; I'm sorry that I'm a grammar Nazi. Good job overall though, better than I honestly expect from about 99% of the people I've met.

      Hello, Rufus! How are you today?

      With all those things that I had in mind while making those past comments about your Tropic Tomb map, I forgot to tell how amazed I was when I saw that Island for the first time. I really enjoy the way you placed the doodads + trees - they look way more natural.
      I still want to review your campaign as a whole, and will do that soon. (damn character limit)

        Thanks a lot!
        Well, I have a big update in the making, including a bigger overmap, so that you can travel between maps, and keep your progress, as well as combat enchancements and other things.

        I can tell you when that update is out instead? :)

      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. :)

        No problem, man. Sometimes (almost always) I take weeks to fix things in my map. For example, I haven't made those changes about lava cracks that you suggested days ago, but I'll change it. hehehe

        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.

        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:

      Do you submit your literature to anywhere? At least I see some short stories at DeviantArt every now and then so I guess that'd be one place.

        Hey, forget DA I found quotev.com which is specifically meant for literature. People submit their stories chapter by chapter, whereas in DA is expected finished work.

        My goal is to write something as well, just need to read a lot of English literature first. (For example using highly descriptive expressions: "she had dressed in a dress" > "she was gowned in luminous silk".)

        Maybe a little bit of a bad example.. It's mostly about verb being the heart of a sentence instead of crowding it with adjectives. That is, "she had dressed in a beautiful, white dress" still sounds poor to me.

        That's nice! I made account to follow you. I recommend giving couple of stories a read, you might find interesting ones.

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

    [​IMG]

    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.
