This entry is to update you on the things I'm doing with my project.
Of course I've already done a lot of work, so basically the first part is just pictures. The goal was to make a goldrush-style map, as if it was the next town after goldrush. So I copied some of the structures and buildings from goldrush to have something to start with. After that it was just a matter of creating other structures based on those copied pieces. And after a while you end up with a slightly different style, with the help of some other texturing.
So here's the very first screenshot I took
As you can see I removed all the textures to avoid ending up with the same textures.
After some texturing it looked like this.
Some more filling up empty space. Looks a lot like Goldrush doesn't it?
But wait, there's something buried here...
Together with this last picture of ingame shots, this is about all of the stuff I made in late 2011.
After this I had a long break. A few months ago I decided it was time to go on. And for the first time I dug into scripting. It isn't easy to learn this stuff so don't expect any new stuff.
But before scripting and making the actual objective, I have to finish the surroundings first. And this is going to take some time. Because I like good graphics for ET, my map has to look good, and this is time-consuming...
These next 3 pictures are my latest screenshots.
If you have any suggestions, ideas, inspirational pictures, do's and don't's, please comment and give me some feedback to work with!
So, it's official, my first blog ever.
There is one main reason for creating this blog. I've doing brushwork (creating buildings and structures) for W:ET for a few years now, but I've never actually done any of the scripting part, so I've never finished a single map. A lot of the brushwork got lost due to computer crashes and other scenarios alike. Now after storing my map on a flash drive once in a while, I feel more confident I will ever finish a map. Plus, I've lately been looking at the scripting part, and I'm learning. So I figured it might be time for a blog so I can update you on my progress, my resources, material, things I've learned and so on. I also hope you can give me feedback, and possibly even help me with feedback and testing.
In the picture below you can see some lost works.
I hope you enjoy it!
