    Right, right, lemme think :gg:...
    For sample purposes, let's say...500 doodads on 32x32?
    What is the doodad limit on normal maps anyway?

    EDIT: 8192 doodads it seems. So that means (if sorted evenly) 2450 doodads per level at most, but I'll look around and see if I can find something to increase that limit.

    alright, well i poked around with it a little bit, and made a little terrain w/ under 50 doodads, (49 :p) but i think it looks kinda... i duno, seems empty, but anyways.. http://s183.photobucket.com/albums/x111/mabus00/?action=view&current=under50doodandsv2.jpg

    i think i can do under 2000 per level w/ ease, i was just messing around with most of the screenshots on there, (experiments i guess) but if i know i have a limit ill start to monitor how many i use, i duno, but i think i wouldn't have a problem with it

    Yeah it does look pretty plain to me, but I'm willing to give you a shot. It's not like I only get one shot to get everything perfect.
    Any preference on which stage to do?

    Not sure if you want to raise the doodad limit. It will probably just lag it. Just try and use good tile variation so you don't need as many doodads.

    Glad to hear you already thought of me. :p
    You seem to have Mabus though, and I'm pretty busy anyways.
    If you do want me to do a beach terrain sometime I'd be glad to.

    You'd actually be my first choice for the Beach/Jungle stage, Gilles, assuming you get the time. I'm pretty patient at this kind of thing :thumbs_up:.

    Hmm. Hello there. I don't know if Voice Acting is required for this campaign but I'll give it a shot anyways.

    I am a Voice Actor and I'll be glad to help if my services are needed here.

    ... Not to brag, but I have a large range of vocals and I can do ALMOST anything you throw at me. [Note ALMOST.]

    ... But in any case, if a Voice Actor's help is required, I'll be here to help out anytime.

    Just PM me if you are considering in custom voices! :3

    ... Thank you!

    P.S, I'm a male. Yeah. Just wanted to make sure. O:

    I believe I've got a possible full set of Beta Testers right now, but I'll letcha know if that changes. And yes, it can be a bit hard at times from what I've seen (yays), hopefully not too daunting at first though...guess time will tell.

    I believe all that's available is additional terrainers right now.

    How about asking admins, to include your need for a terrainer in next news item?

    That would actually be a good idea, HappyTauren, I believe I'll play the wait and see game a little longer with Gilles, but I'll probably try that if the time comes. (I love the admins here, so helpful :grin:)

    ArcticInferno, the details for terrainer are on the previous page, about 2/3 down. Custom doodads are allowed to a degree, but preferably should be kept minimal.

    If beta tester is still needed I could be one. I tried the demo and just saw how horribly imbalanced it was. I hope you buffed the shifters already^^ I had little expierience in terraining so I could make smaller things, I admit that Im not good. The best drawing expirience I have is MS Paint^^
