    ^ Just noticed it now, but hes definitely right.

    Just weird. Choose a sky which matches the blue fog. Maybe like a blue sky.

    The sky is not seen inside the actual game. Can't you tell the difference between World Editor screenshots and in game screenshots?

    This looks like another dimension. I would like to hear what are the horrors in this map. What are they, specters, robots, demons, vampires, snakes, wolves, what is in this map?

    I subscribe to the Animalpower's question.

    Horror forest... hmn? I don't really know whether this forest will be arousing any distress/fear. In my opinion it doesn't have so much of horror climatic.

    Sounds are going to deliver 80% of the fear you will constantly have while playing. You will notice this as soon as the gameplay video is coming up.

    We are not yet, if at all, revealing the horrors that the map will have. That is for yourself to find out. All that I can say is that most of you wont even finish this map due to it being too scary for you to play. If you played Amnesia you know this feeling.

    @Jazz read the post above yours. Sverker said the sound will deliver the horror.

    Hah...that's a good one. :D

    The Sounds, you say? Specialist of horror Darkarza told you that or that is your own opinion?
    Besides, let's be plain. We are talking about the map,oh sorry, the Director's Cut project to the Wc3, which may have a dark climate, but no one above 13 will be scared.

    I'm looking forward to the video. Who knows? It might change my mind. ^^ Or not.

    @Goris yeah we should wait for the video before discussing if the game is scary or not.

    Also how is your map? I'm so amaze that you reduced the map size dramatically. I remember it more than 170mb or so last year.

    I know what it is like playing Amnesia, as well as several other horror games, I'm quite shure you can't put that feeling into warcraft 3.
    Just think of the big UI, the control, it just removes all te horror from it.
    I'd be glad if you can show me better though!

    It's possible to completely hide the interface, to make transparent any image or smallest number in each corner. Well, it's a little time consuming.
    As a result you will receive only 2 black bars on screen.

    I will agree with you about the control.

    Not this thread.

    I don't quite find audio as arousing in this subject as video. I like to be aroused by visuals when it comes to my horror games, and the only arousal that really gets me going is the noise of RE4 chainsaw. That arouses me like nothing else, I jump up out of my chair and start screaming at my TV, all the while very much aroused at my game. So if you want me to be aroused by some arousing noises, put an arousing chainsaw unit with an arousing chainsaw sound in this arousing forest.

    I will wait for the video and then I will make a true picture about it like I already said. But I must sadly say to you I played Amnesia more than three times and it was not too scary for me. If you want to create something like Amnesia you will need a lot of sounds and music because it was just one of the main things of Amnesia which has created this survival atmosphere. Anyway I still wish you good luck with your project and ofcourse fun.

    It is a SP map, you cannot play this with anyone else than yourself. Also, I feel like I haven't updated you guys in quite some time.

    Today I got the fire model needed for the candles. This means that I got all that I need in order to start making actual content. As soon as a small part of the content is done I will be releasing a video of my best friend playing the map in it's current state with webcam. This way I will be able to prove to you that this mod is going to be very scary even tho using the Warcraft3 engine.

    The video will be uploaded to my youtube channel --> www.youtube.com/Sverk3rCraft among with my other videos.

    After that video is released I am expecting the support to increase which makes me able to request some 2D art for the project as well as beginning to select Beta testers. Now as for the beta testers, these are not going to be picked randomly and I am only going to let ~15 people play the actual beta of Dualism. If you feel like you have supported this project, possibilities are that you will be rewarded with a beta spot.

    Beta testers will also be able to play the actual map 1 week before anyone else. This means that after the map is finished, I am only going to release it to the beta testers, wait 1 week and then publish the map here on Hive.

    Also, all beta testers will have the possibility to be featured on my youtube channel if wished to be so.
