    So looking at the 1.29 patch notes I realized this is gonna be bad news for cinematics, due to the wide screen implementation, you'll now have to make sure you also terrain those areas now visible in wide screen to avoid leaving off awkward empty areas.

    And unless you have a wide screen (Which most people do anyways) you won't be able to fix that

    Not sure if the patch will go live before the deadline of this contest, but I guess we could make an exception and (at worst case) judge the cinematics using a no higher version than 1.28

    Just thought I'd share this info with you guys, you might find it useful for future contests :)

    Confusion is possible in case one contestant does it on 1.29 and other on 1.28. In case this happens, another way out would be a simple youtube video, content is fixed there. :)

    I am expecting a youtube video from everyone with a map larger than 10 mb anyways, it is simply a nice thing to do if the map size gets annoying.
    Which it tends to do. One custom background track is 10 mb pretty much :-/

    I am excited too, let's hope our excitements won't go to waste :goblin_cry:

    I have written a solid scenario as well. I'll have to create a good atmosphere for this one :3

    I have some decent tiles at my other computer, so I just spammed ashenvale grass for now.
    Also, still looking for a remotely decent grass model :-/

    Ashenvale grass is the only one I like honestly :-/
    Among the green ones at least.

    Here are two new WIP's bcz I feel hyped, and that'll be all from me for today.

    Street View
    [​IMG]


    Aerial View

    This street view is fine in WE, but ingame it becomes a bit obsolete because of the default dark fog of the game which prevents vision. I'll be glad to hear suggestions for this.

    Thanks, never played kotor before, but images from google show alike hehe. I'm trying to create what I have in mind as a dark futuristic city.

    Great WIPs, guys.

    Chaosy, watch out for that border of the map. If that border is not going to be visible during cinematic, it will be perfectly fine, but in case it does, rule of thumb is to start in the middle of the map or far away from the border. See what suits you best, just a tip. :)

    I think the fog covers it right now.

    Can we just make a cinematic about the past (No time travel, etc)?

    I think that is technically not a rule breaker.
