Just Another Life Map
Latest Public Version: v0.2a
JALM is a life simulation map. You can buy buildings and land, open your own stores, create or buy and set up furniture for your house, work at various stores around the city, start a factory, and much more...
-Gold Mine icons on the minimap represent stores
-House icons represent buildings/land you can buy
Please keep in mind that this is the Beta and will probably contain a lot of bugs. If you find one, please PM me or make a post or something. You'll be credited.
v0.2a Patch Notes

-Removed buggy and useless third person camera
-Fixed music (I think)
-Removed useless Wanted leaderboard


v0.2 Patch Notes

This version is truly a step-up for JALM. Please note that I am no longer working on this map, and this version was only recently uploaded after not working on it for a long time. Some of the patch notes may be inaccurate, and there may be some rather large bugs with the new features below.

Features
  • Graphic Overhaul: Buildings are now BUILDINGS, instead of Blizz cliffs used as walls. Sidewalks have a new tileset, and you can actually tell that they're sidewalks now! Generally, the city now looks MUCH more like a CITY, and not a medieval town with asphalt.
  • Inventory System: If you buy a cell phone, you can have access to a "backpack" represented by a small island that can be used to store items. Players can teleport to and leave only their islands at any time. The player heroes themselves still also retain the standard 6-slot inventory.
  • Pedestrians: The city is no longer a ghost town. You will see many more NPCs walking around the city.
  • Cell Phones: You can now buy a cell phone at Radio Shack. It’s pretty basic and doesn’t have much use right now, but over time it will gain more features and you will be able to buy more advanced cell phones. I plan to create games even for your phone eventually. Current uses:
    -GPS: Shows the current street(s) you are standing on.
    -Inventory: See above
  • Phonebooths: Useless now! Features will be added to these as more features are added to the cell phone. For example, being able to dial random numbers.
  • Drugs: :D There are now two drug dealers that walk around the eastern island. However, there are pros and cons to using drugs...
  • It rains now.
  • The 3 heroes to have to choose from are now very different. Each one will give you a different way to play the game. The Dexterity hero is a criminal, the Strength hero can craft things that others cannot, and the Intelligence hero can build factories.
  • Factories! All you need to do is buy a CraftMaster from the new Appliance Lord store right by Sofa King, hire a worker, deposit materials, and it'll create any type of furniture! But don't expect to get a CraftMaster cheaply... EDIT: These don't work :3

General
  • Just Another Loap Map shall now be called Just Another Life Map. Woohoooo
  • Aside from the huge graphic update, minor terrain changes have occurred around the city.
  • Various tooltips fixed.
  • All of the useless "Parking Spot" units have been removed, since they serve absolutely zero purpose (As of now).
  • Agility is now called Dexterity.
  • Inventory, aka the 6-slots, is now referred to as your Pockets to avoid confusion with the Bottomless Backpack inventory.
Bugs
  • Some bugs related to various jobs have been fixed.
  • Statue Repairer is still an unstable job. Try to avoid it.
  • Fixed a bug with the Realtor.
  • Fixed a bug where you could not open the door to a building you bought.

    I think you should contact mods or even better admins. There is some weird bug at the Hive that sometimes maps get just... rejected :O

    The resource seems available to me, also look at at modertor comments it has 2/5 yet not rejected or approved.

    I will decide based upon the next few comments if it will be approved or rejected. Simply make a short comment saying if it should be approved or not.

    In my opinion, It should be approved. It's very detailed and fun :D. Much better than those gay and stupid LoaP modified editions.

    If leaks make it unplayable or a real torture, then yes, otherwise it's just decreases the map rating.
