one suggestion i have:
keep away from another lila panic version.
there are 300+ (i guess) out already.
I do like his version if that is worth anything
Yes well, my point is that although there may be hundreds of maps, 99% of them are of poor quality, which is where I come in. As Josh said, I have already completed a panic recreation, and it's being improved upon based on yesterday's tests.
oh, you already did it .. ok, cant wait to see your version ^_^
i bet every (ZM) mapper did at least one lil panic version - me include
high quality maps are fine, i actually work on roy the ship night version.
Wazzz up. We gotta hook up with Chodda and get your maps on his test server so we can get to work. Those two maps I played yesterday had very nice potential. After a little work those 2 maps would be a nice add to the ZM servers.
Moon don't be mad at Chodda. That was my fault. When we where doin the lil panic beach revise I thought we where gonna need your help but Chodda had it all under control. My bad. I should have wrote you back.
i dont was mad with Chodda, i was mad with you because - you saied already -
you dint wrote back.
(sorry for offtopic)
If your so serious about makin maps and perfecting maps why did you not come to the lil panic server for 2 min to talk to me and Chodda? Chodda has a test server where we can post your maps and everyone can give you ideas on playability. Then you and Chodda can work together to fast track the maps onto the servers. Isnt this the main goal? If we work together we can accomplish more. Are you serious or not?
co mapping isnt such easy as you think.
i did it in the past with Natalya (you probably know)
you have some ideas and cannot do them til the partner is
done and send you vmf back. otherwise you have two different maps.
True that moon. Im just tryin to get the all the mappers together. I dont know shit about the tech side. I support all the mappers 100% and want them to thrive on PF.
Hey Kruma, I was around for your map test yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed both maps and see a lot of potential in both with some minor adjustments. I would love to continue to check out your maps and give input.
I have to second what Tazland said though - you should definitely take advantage of the fact that MasterChodda has a test server and collab with him, if only to put up your maps on his server for live testing when the main pF servers aren't available to run a test.

How can I help: I know as much as the next guy about the technical side of mapping: nothing. However I play ZM all the time and have a good feel for gameplay and balance. Also I'm not one who is quick to say "This is a shit map, just bag it" - I know people were hating on Kakariko Village because the rooms were too tough, but I for one saw it as a map with GREAT potential with just a few minor adjustments. If you want my input / opinion on your upcoming projects, let me know.
Finally, just want to say THANKS for choosing Plaguefest to share your work with - without mappers like you, Chodda, and Moonlight participating in our community, we would have a bare-bones map selection and no balance for unlimited ammo. You guys are the best.
