Day 0 (30 hours speedmap-ish effort)

Recommended Posts

Looks pretty good... is it made 30 hours continously with some short breaks or with long breaks between mapping process?

30 hours in-editor, across 5 days of active development.  (About 6 hours a day.)

 

Layout, texturing, triggers and lighting took about 25 hours.

Things placements 2 - 3 hours.

Testing 2 - 3 hours.

 

The layout was made during the first 25 hours of development from scratch with no pre-thoughts, although AFTER I had created

ageneral layout of the map I was thinking about enemy placements and edits even when I was not actively working in-editor.

Like during lunch, bath, before sleep etc. so that may be considered "cheating".

 

That is like +1 - 2 hours of "passive development"

Solid map. The flows good and the combat is varied and challenging enough.

Does anyone know when a speed map stops being a speed map? :p

The sessions round here make me think of them as being an hour or few but I guess it is also an attitude n there's not a strict definition

 

I liked btw thanks keep it up

My understanding is that it's setting a timelimit to the mapping process. Generally it's fairly short i.e 24hr but it can vary.

Honesly, I don´t, so I called it speedmap-ISH effort. I know some people can crank pretty neat map in absurd time.

 

Anyway, I wanted to thank you all for your support, I´m glad you enjoyed the map.

I have some ideas and gimmicks in my mind for some future maps, so hopefully I get to make a bigger wad (in this speedmap-ISH format).
