Frequency of releases

Post by oskarwiksten » Wed Feb 02, 2011 6:32 pm

I'm sure that if we can make the releases happen more often, everyone (including me) will be happier. :)

Currently, the activity that by far takes the most time to make a release ready is the mapmaking and writing all dialog for the NPCs, including quests.

How can we make the releases happen more often? What are your ideas about how we can improve this?

I am interested in designing some dungeon and outdoor maps for you. I have perused the section on how to submit. Do you have any suggestions for map content. For example would you want the maps to be related to storyline? Do you need just the basic maps or encounter areas as well?

Great, you are very welcome to help in making maps. I also made a tutorial today on the basic steps in mapmaking for Andor's Trail. Hopefully that can shed some light on parts that previously were unclear.

Regarding what type of maps that we need; I would say that we need both dungeons, indoor (houses) and road maps. I have a very rough sketch of a worldmap that I use as guideline for the maps I create. This is just a rough sketch, we will probably add more smaller dungeons along the roads, to make it more interesting to travel.

I am working on the maps southeast of Fallhaven, the road to Vilegard and the beginning of the main road. If you want, you could continue the maps to Stoutford or to Sullengard.

Edit: added spoiler tags around the worldmap :-)

World map looks interesting, however Nor city and Feygard look too big.
Looking forward to trolls in the forests and ogres in the mountains. What about flying creatures like griffin and dragons ?

Of all things on the map, I look most forward to is Mount Galmore. I keep thinking of the sequence of the dwarf city in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

how much of that map do you have completed? only the squared parts? or do you have rough make ups of the other areas?
