So, I was sleeping the other night and had a couple Map Editor (ME) ideas force themselves into my head. Thus, I'm back at work on a technical demo. At the moment, I have a [teal]Simple Town[/teal] that serves as a hub to eight zones that I've been working on, where I've got three completely finished: a [green]Dark Forest[/green], a [red]Lava Cave[/red], and an [brown]Underground Cave[/brown].
My last tech demo had a lot of stiffness to it, so I'm hoping to make these new maps more fluid and realistic. Also, my city map features my block extending techniques to more buildings into a map.
Once I get my computer running again I'll post a few pics.[/white]

[white]Well, the demo is all finished and ready to play. The save file is uploaded to the codejunkies website through my network adapter, since my comp is still inoperable (Ves is lazy). Those of you with net adapters can get it from the codejunkies directly, the rest of you can download it from their site by clicking HERE.
Its got 8 levels/areas/etc. to explore. After you exit each area you get one character of the passcode, enabling you to enter the game through the edit menu later.
I hope everyone really likes the new demo. Personally, I feel the maps in this demo far exceed the quality of the previous demo.
The final product includes the following areas: [red]Lava Caverns[/red] [blue]Ice Caverns[/blue] [green]Dark Forest Trails[/green] Underground Caverns [yellow]Coastal Beaches[/yellow] [orange]Rocky Desert Trails[/orange] [purple]Grassy Roads[/purple] and [teal]Mountain Cliff Paths[/teal]
The over all theme of the areas was to show not how to make cities (although you start in a simple city map) but how to make dungeons and pathways as was done in FFX.[/white]

[white]If I wasn't so lazy and cheap (I'm a really cheap bastard) I'd figure out how to hook my PS2's audio up to the computer and make some vids for the demo, but that would take too much work for my lazy self. Besides, it takes like 10 minutes tops to see all the maps in the demo. They're short and only meant to be examples.
Hmm, I wonder what Drew is up to, he makes vids and isn't as lazy as I.[/white]

I just finished downloading it.
I'm going to check it out once I get the chance.
Edit: I just checked it out last night and it is amazing. I was surprised maps that small took you 2-3 hours to do, but then again, with all that intricate detail, I guess it would take that long. Everything looked real. I think it looked even better than your last Tech Demo.

It's ... it's ... TFR!!!
Holy cow! First a Tinbok sighting and now TFR returns! Maybe the Domain is coming back to life after all.
Good to see ya, how've you been?
Black all around me, even the water. The water’s not really black, of course. Reflection from the sky. Water’s like a mirror sometimes. Lets you see your face in it, anyway. Reflecting the night’s face, then, isn’t it? Does the night have a face? It must. Otherwise the water couldn’t reflect it.
