    Van Eastmore Status:
    [tr][tdalt]Revive.
    Reasons why we abandoned this project before:
    • I have little knowledge on the editor before(coding, terraining)
    • Due to lack of knowledge the project got lots of bugs and leaks
    • We lose motivation due to many bugs

    Reasons why we decided to continue the project:
    • I improved my terraining and triggering skills(and understand vjass a little), and its more than enough to handle the project

    Proof of my poor terraining skills before: Ugly terrain

    The Story of Van Eastmore
    You'll play as Van Eastmore, the main protagonist of the story. His family died when the Gourlan Empire attack the Empire of Dehouthar. His Father and 2 Brothers are soldiers who died honorably, while his mother died in depression. Now you'll witness the epic story of Van Eastmore and play many side stories, enter dungeons, fight wild animals and take quest from a guild, as he climb his way to the top and become one of the greatest warrior of the Devantia.


    The Lore
    Year 1405, Gourlan Empire declare war against the Empire of Dehouthar, its been a bloody battle against the 2 greatest empire and it lasted for 20 years, the war was called "The End of Time" because the war taken thousands of life and left millions of people with nothing. Year 1428 the Devantia Empire took control of Vexta and delivers peace. But in year 1438, a dozen of Empires declared war against Devantia and its allies. And thus, the war started.

    At first Devantia was able to hold the rebelion but as the days goes on, the fight become tougher and tougher as they lose man every second. As the other remaining neutral Empire saw the things can happen if Devantia falls, they decided to give support to Devantia. But months later The King of Devantia get infected by a lethal disease and so it all depends now on his son Helvin.

    The descriptions look weird lol. You should use
    tags for map details, and the story. And for the screenshots, rename it into: Screenshot 1, 2, 3... Weapon 1, Weapon 2... Anyways, the screenshots look good. Is this a single player rpg or an orpg? Because there is only one character, which makes it look like an SPRPG if it is indeed one. If it isn't an ORPG, then why does it have the words: "Open World RPG?" Clear does up, and this will get interesting.

    Edit these

    BB Codes used.
    The map descriptions.
    Grammar


    All in all, it looks good, but the thread makes it look weird. Good luck anyways.

    I already have that skin, but the armor attachments doesn't look good with it.

    Also I'll post more map info so you know what to do with the side stories.

    This is what I'm trying to use for the villager kid, but for some reason, it don't apply.

    Anyway I'll be able to finish the forest terrain later. Will put a screen after that, and maybe finish the attack spells of halberd and spear.

    I'll upload a video for you guys to see how the manual attack works, but I'll only show the sword and the bow for now.
