    ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
    • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
    • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
    • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

    Amazing is the only word that properly describes this map.

    May I ask, are you a film student or are you working with film and cinematography professionally?

    Thanks guys!! :D I'm glad that you all enjoyed it!

    @FeelsGoodMan I'm not, but I take that as a huge compliment! Me and my friends have enjoyed fiddling around in Adobe Premiere, After Effects and Sony Vegas Pro since our early teenage years, making short films and such. I also write a lot of short stories in my free time, so I guess these two hobbies complement each other :)

    And I would say this taps into my area of interest so please keep making short stories and cinematics! :)
    Bthw, I get a sense of Blade Runner somehow.

    That's awesome! Oh I will :D

    Indeed! One source of inspiration was actually the depiction of Las Vegas from Blade Runner 2049. I wanted to combine that orange, dreamlike scenery with the more abstract deserts by Zdzislaw Beksinski

    Excellent and atmospheric. Didn't understand the ending, though.

    Great movie. Is ending telling us to be ourselves? What is aurora actually?
