    Lembidi, do not multipost or call people names. You'll receive -rep next time I see you insulting someone. You should apologize to, indomitable1319. Try to listen to his constructive critisism.

    That was a very nice apology. :)
    And it was even on my profile! :)
    He is sick. :D

    You called me 'fatty'. Why? Who the hell are you to call me 'fatty'? And I would've thought you could've thrown a less childish insult in another attempt to cover your mistake. :)

    Anyway, Maker, I really like the terrain you've made. :)
    I haven't really posted that review I promised you months ago (nor create it), but I can say that I really like the terrain and the skills. :)
    Also, the inventory system is pretty cool. It allows you to have a set of items like a backpack, but each set is different. :D

    Okay, please stop. I don't want conflic. :p :p

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    BUG'S!!
    The Ring is on another bag, When i press > or < to change the inventory bag, the effect of ring (like +1 int, or anything) is Losses!! Could you change the inventory system to 1 list only system. Only Poison that on UI bags!!

    {EDIT}
    Because Maker added the music (Note: Imported music are make the map size increases dramaticaly!! :vw_death::vw_death:

    The next version is about 60 MB.

    And there is full screen inventory to replace the one in the 20 MB version :)

    There isn't much work left before I can upload the next version.

    I've been reading this thread for a while now. This project looks really promising ^-^

    It's not actually the music that's increasing the size that much in particular, it's the doodads, the models, icons, etc..
    Imports in Warcraft III are compressed. For example, in one of my maps, I had 8MB worth of imports and yet the map was only 4MB total in size.

    Removing the music can help reduce the size, but my best guess is that the models have a much greater impact on the file size than the music. But removing the models would be horrible :p

    Yeah 30 min of different music can take max 10 MB if optimized nicely, models and textures are lol, much bigger problem.

    Single terrain tile usually take from 1 to 2 MB.
    High quality models from 500KB to 2 MB.

    And this is really big problem.

    Using 1st person and close camera will ruin idea for optimization at first place, everything will look blurry :sad:

    But using standard camera we are able to reduce textures quality (sometimes even by 75%), showing almost same effects in game but saving size a lot.

    Now because this is single player map, and because there is a lot more important things to care about, resource optimization is just minor problem that can be fixed at the very end.

    Music = 10 MB
    Terrain tiles = 12 MB
    Textures = 45 MB
    Models = 8 MB
    Text files = 1 KB
    => file size = 59 MB

    I don't care much about file size. Most things are imported now, so the size won't go up much from that.

    Thanks :)

    I'm back from the world championships. We beat Spain but lost the rest.

    No progress, I imported my custom window system a week ago, but it is bugging slightly at the moment. Will fix it later.
