I'd like to see an edited version of the swamp map.
- Spawn on road
- less shrubs under the bridge.
- a small ladder so people can access the bridge from the sides
- detail, such as turned over wagons, with the goods falling out ect.
ALSO, the map size is very large.
overall the map pack is a success my favorites are; village, smugglers cave and volcano map.
Putting spawns on the road will result in people shooting from one spawn to the other, and players who are not ready will most likely get killed by an archer before they even get to move around, this happens alot in the Ruins map for me anyway, and it's so frustrating when there are 30 people in a battle, you've just waited the whole round, then when you spawn, you get shot by an archer because the map is so open at the spawns. I put the spawns in the swamp itself, because it gives players the opportunity to quickly spread out, without the worry of being nabbed by some annoying archer.
The spawns will remain where they are.
The shrubs under the bridge will remain where they are. I don't see any reason why I should move them. Could you elaborate on your suggestion?
A ladder in the swamp would look well out of place, and the bridge is so small that you'd have less chance of dying when approaching the bridge from the ends than on a ladder. There won't be a ladder.
I did and sort of still do want to put the wagons into the map, however the reason I didn't put them in to begin with is because I didn't want to give archers any cover to just camp out on, since that is all archers do. I will still give it a try in my next update anyway because the map really isn't much of an archer map anyway.
The actual map size is quite small in terms of terrain, but as for the download size, it IS about 560kb which yes, is a bit big, however, this is a map with alot of objects on it, and since it is a swamp with lots of grass/reeds, it's very difficult to reduce that even further than what I have without destroying the whole idea of using the grass in the first place; concealment.
And I'd rather download 1 really good 560kb map than 10, 20kb maps that are either really bad, or just really boring.
Thankyou for your feedback.
One more thing I have to do to that swamp map is smooth some terrain out for horses, and also fix up a little texture problem, as I have some shiney water surface on the edge of the road which just looks odd.
