    Model looks outstanding in my opinion. It also could have slightly longer arms for more realistic look I think, what do you think, PROXY?

    Updated first post with Seth's images.

    Team color spots are good.

    Edit: Quick terrain update.

    Thanks. :) Rays are called Ceiling Rays by Tranquil. Well, project itself goes slightly slow even though I work 8-10 hours per day, I even usually forget to eat, hehe. I may finish the project by the end of this month if I am not going to the vacation to Latvia this month. If I am, more than a week goes away and it might be finished on september.

    Thanks. :)

    I was mapping and when I pushed Save File, window appeared representing saving progress bars and electricity went out, I thought it would ruin the file but luckily it was alright.

    Yesturday accidently PC fell onto ground, breaking screen's plug and electricity flow plug / unite, PC went out, I was afraid it would not be all the damage and hard drive would lose all its memory because of hard crash into the ground, but luckily it was alright.

    I don't know if I am lucky person or not, probably both. This one scared me.

    Hehe, I promise the last 1/3rd will be 3 times better than first third of map, I have some mad ideas for it. In head it always looks better than it appears do be when it is done though.

    I will save map's file to hiveworkshop's pastebin every day just to avoid accidents that would make me lose all work. I hope 25 MB every day in pastebin for one week would not cork hive, hehe.

    I'd have to say some improper import use... But it does look really nice for a barren desert.

    Inspires me to finish my desert terrain.

    There are basically none proper egypt terrain imports except for some pyramids that are completely useless. It calls for an interpretation of many things. I'm glad it inspired you though.

    Edit: Terrain update once again. This is the chamber of 3rd main questline boss you'd have to encounter. Lich have -Grendel's egyptian-looking skin. The yellow balls are floating in the air just for the looks. Hope you guys would like this.

    Dude. Please put a BACKUP. I mean. Come on.

    Anyways. How about if you put heiroglyphics, if you cast a spell as a Floating text. Though I highly doubt anyone can do that.

    How about, you battle gods that went haywire ( is that acceptable? ), and give you legendary items to complete certain quest (i.e. The Soul of Osiris: Hear me, hear me! I have found the soul of Osiris! Yes, it is a part, but for one, it is very important. I hold the very important part of his body, the SHADOW. Go out and bring me the other parts of his soul, including : Ba, Ka, Akh and the secret name (ren) ! If you are successful then we are one step closer to bring him back, and to know how to kill Seth. If this was included in the video, sorry. I did not watch for I am loading another video as well.

    ~GOOD LUCK~

    I am constantly saving map's file on the internet, it is safe now.

    Floating hieroglyphs would be nice of course, but it is rather difficult thing to do, and I have no clues from what to start.

    Well, it is truly complex to get a proper god image model. Your suggestion could be a part of main quesline of course, but then the map is not big enough as I have almost planned everything already. The legend itself require only body parts and Isis then calls for his soul and resurrect him, then Osiris becomes the god of underworld and the dead as Anubis yields providing his place. According to the legend it is only Seth who is corrupted, of course more gods to fight would look cool. There still will be many bosses even though they would not be titled as gods. And it is more of to punish Seth, Seth will be the main boss to fight against, but one would not be fully killed. According to legend, killing Seth would not make Horus / in this case hero better than Seth is.

    I appreciate your ideas. Thanks.

    What I meant is that shield from Zelda... The stones in sandbox from Halo 3, they look out of place.

    Oh man, your terraining is very inspiring. I'm a very good terrainer myself and I've seen pretty much everything there is to see but when I saw your new picture of your terrain I was thinking to myself "Just have a quick look at it then continue reading the posts inside this thread"

    Once I glanced at it my sight stopped for quite some time, inspecting the artistic properties of the terrain.

    Very well done APproject.

    This is amazing, where are you getting all these terrain tiles and doodads? :p Some of them I recognize from UTM.
