Goa Jungle

Postby Dimension » Sun Apr 22, 2012 6:42 pm

Hi guys,

Just looking for feedback and oppinions on my latest map for my project.
Its called Goa Jungle, a basic huning map with 4 main hunting locations.

Top left - Town (port in / port out)
Top right - Goblin Shacks (Goblin mobs int)
Bottom right - Goblin Miners (Goblin mobs melee)
Bottom left - Raptor area (Raptor mobs melee)
Middle - Goa Temple (Snake mobs melee / NPC for warp to Temple dungeon boss)

I have used the idea to make it seem very enclosed, much like a jungle by limiting move cells to a path (2 movecells only) and to increase this feeling of enclosure i have also added small hunting spots that you can see trail off the main hunting areas just as an extra spawn of mobs.
There is also a small trail that leads to a mini camp (leads off the path south of the Goa Temple) that will just havea quest NPC (for hand in of collection items from each mob) and a basic repair / pot NPC.

I would like your feedback in wether this style of map is worth while or is it offputting as the players view may be limited whilst running around these paths.

How can i improve the map... if at all?

I will also include the original file in JPEG format if you would like to download it and zoom in to it.

Map looks tasty !!! But the town in the middle stands out too much I think,

I'd say use soma tiles and it fix my problem,

The middle is a temple not a town, its a hunting area and only holds 2 NPCs, 1 that warps you "inside the temple" to fight a timed boss and the other is to hand in Snake skins for items from the temple area.

All tiles used are from soma :)

I like it, kind of reminds me of Zul'Gurub from WOW.

Looks good but hard to comment without seeing it ingame. Depending on the size the hunting areas might be a little bit off. How big is the map, compared to current maps?
