Ever since I stepped into Lloyd Morris' Ancient Archipalego map I always
wanted to make a large indoor/outdoor gothic map. I had no idea that it
might take me two and half years to complete one though.
Of course there were many months in-between where I didn't touch the map,
and probably 50% of the construction time was spent making all the textures.
And then there was the dreaded mappers block! I shudder to think how many
hours I've spent just zooming around my map in the 3D window of Radiant
waiting for some inspiration!
I started this map as part of a University project. I wanted to try and
build it realistically, so you'll notice there are no jump pads or teleporters,
just a lot of stairs :-p The map is vis blocked as well as it can be for its
size, but will probably need a reasonably good pc to run smoothly.
I like to reward players who come back to the map, so have added some secret
areas. They range in difficulty; some only require a good jump to access, and
others require a rocket jump (and a sense of adventure!).
It's been a great project, and one that feels strange to finally finish. I've
even lived in 5 different houses during it's build! Anyway I've had a blast
making it and hope you enjoy playing.
