    Oh thanks. Not realy sure if I would be able to find all the models I want to make it the way I want, although if I don't I'll find another way or may just give up on this contest all together. lol
    The mushrooms in flaming hot places. Doesn't really make much sence, although I don't know a lot about fungus.
    I believe that this was judged as a negative last contest by Lordkoon. :q
    I'll may be rooting for you. ;D

    Flambe mushrooms are fine... if combined with white cinder wine.


    p.s. I suggest we also get a time interval in which to do the judging job.

    I see your tree simulator, and raise you a forest simulator.

    [​IMG]

    You could maybe give the play control of rain or other natural forces, which you can use to help the forest grow. Like in Black & White, if you've ever played that.

    Mine is shaping up to possibly become a Tree Tag-style game, with fighting trees and all :)

    Uhmm, by simulator you guys mean that random stuff is generated in the map? like crops and such? thats a pretty neat idea, that way it is more realistic :p

    Aye another day of work, heres the first "playable" WIP, i just did a few triggers, nothing big... Play the map and walk around, I was mostly working on terrain today and I still need a lot of work to do on the terrain but hey its playable now so go ahead and give it a shot :p

    The map consist on gathering souls for Lucifer, the current gate keeper of the underworld went on vacation with his wife lady gaga and picked a evil soul to do his job, you play that evil soul.

    No, in mine you "build" the plants yourself.

    It's already quite hell-looking :)

    Only other thing I can suggest is a custom tileset to match your doodads.

    WiP 1 Screenshots for my game.... cant think of a name yet.

    WiP 1 Screenshots [4]:

    Even the game focuses on collecting the three artifacts (changed four to three), there is still many optional things to collect such as Secret Tomes that makes the hero grow and also finding survivors to help you because I know you cant defeat a large army of Undead with just a small army of Knights.

    More WiPs Screenshots will be coming. I might include puzles and traps in-game to make it fun so stay tuned. Feedbacks are appreciated!

    I too was thinking along that line. The difference being I have a blank map with nothing done. :X

    Technically my map is also blank, I need to actually do some terrain.

    If you're going single-player, how about a terrain generator?

    Along with god-powers to shape the landscape.

    God. Only rulerofiron focused on Farming.Juno and Hell_Master only focused on the other features of the map. Map has to be focused on Farming,JESUS.

    Map does not need to be pure farming. If it has a farming component into its good. It is said in the first post that you create a map that you CAN INTERPRET AS FARMING... so pure or not its ok.

    I didn't like the theme in the first place because it's too 'strict'. Also it will be boring to see ten entries with farming some carrots.

    Exactly Aero, quite boring seeing games mostly that is planting and planting, growing.... but the entries are prmising.

    Some suggestions give to rulerofiron99.
    I don't think that a wisp will "eat a tree", which wisp is protecting the trees but also eating them...?
    (ok, only one so "suggestion")

    I am somewhat.... saddened by everybody forgetting me.

    Update of my entry:

    Crafting now exists.


    Still gotta fix my code so no looking at how poorly made it is. :p

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with this just yet; I added that spell for the time being as a way to quickly get biomass.

    In terms of theme, the idea is that you are your own forest, and all the trees already on the map aren't "part" of you, so it isn't like eating yourself.

    I might go it the traditional wisp harvesting method, but for balance purposes I might want to destroy doodad trees. Or maybe convert them to the player's cause...

    EDIT:
    They only remembered me when I posted a screenie.

    I'll take a look at your map when I get home.
    (I could have sworn I edited this post originally...)
