Underground Volcano (Map)

Reviews

Approved because gameplay and map goals are good, although I would like to point that the terrain is sometimes good, sometimes awful (mostly due to the color of terrain textures). Set to Approved
?

    Well, there's something white in the ground, looked like snow to me.
    And I believe yes, but not 100% sure.

    oh okay.

    set to Restricted as preventive measure only.

    Hey, it was just because I didn't knew and didn't want to delete it. If I had deleted it, you would had to make that description from scratch :p

    Okay so a bunch of starting stuff:
    first, the water and lava thing. It looks really really weird (and ugly). Either you use water or you use lava. Or you make it so that the lava is confined in places, like "pockets" of lava.
    second, you may want to put a barrier between the sea and the underground dome instead of just putting invisible magic walls. It looks a bit better.
    Third, you can buy the boat even if your hero is not in the circle (making the repair spell useless, as why would repair your boat when you can just buy a new one?)
    Fourth, and this one is more personal. Make the god dammed shades inmovile or at least make them move slower, cause right now they move 2fast.
    Also, I went inside the volcano, found a not working teleporter, had no idea what to make, went out, died :p

    that's about it (for now, still testing)

    Set to Awaiting update
    ======================================================================

    Always check/recheck the Map Submission Rules! (Map Submission Rules)

    These will help make a better description:


    Screenshots could attract more players to download your work. Make the best of them.

    A credits list is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated.

    A changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.

    The third thing you mentioned is impossible (the player is limited with only 1 ship)! For that, the map is completely playable, follow the instructions to complete it if you want. So, you had better approve it. :razz:

    I did not say that you could get more than one ship, I said you could buy ship without being near of the dock.

    Yes. Cause if Edwuin loses his ship and can't go back without it, he won't be able to buy another one and the game will freeze... :pmeh:

    Is it enough for approving by your calculations?

    Guess it is...
    I would like to point out that you shouldn't press moderators to review your resources, much less say stuff like "stop giving excuses and approve already" it's not only rude, it also gives a bad image for you and makes me less neutral.
    So please try to avoid that (unless a mod leaves your resource alone for like 2 weeks or more, then you have the right to rant)
