@Grandma Deb - Your new picture looks really good! Makes me want to visit this place. Forgive me, however, if I say the sprite on the right looks like he's taking a bath in grape juice, but at least I can guess what he's doing! :)   )

Let me join the fun.

Entry : Magic Ritual



Let say that the woman sacrifice a child to perform a sort of ritual. She's in some kind of psychotic break. :v

Original Resources :



I'd like to say that almost everything on the map is original. Some are RTP edits, and the character sprites are made by my friend for me. I'm doing some edits to the sprites so that it fits the situation on the map. Some of them are premade assets, so I put only the assets that I made after the contest is announced as original resources.
 

So, I'd like to give credits to :

RTP (Enterbrain)

My friend (Agavi)

@Black Mage, Hey I see the sublimal message here.  DIE in blood isn't the full word. I see the crack in the wall that looks like a T.. You're just telling us that it takes sacrifice to diet. 

No, I can't live without my carbs.  Nice locker and pentacle.

@GrandmaDeb

Glad that you like it. :)

@DarkstarMatyrX

Whoa, that was fast. :o

It was unintended at first, until someone point it at me and then I put the child on the middle for sacrifice :p .

You've done a great job on figuring it.

HI everyone hope I am not too late.

This is my map:



This is a steampunk/Victorian era mental hospital. Alessa was admitted when she claimed her twin sister was killed bye a demon. Which was true. And now the demon is after her mother and the ghost of her twin sister is visiting her in order to help her escape the night mare that is the mental hospital run bye people experimenting on the patients, and return home to help her mother.

Its a project idea I have so though why not see if I can make a map for this n maybe run with it :D

The object I made from scratch was a first for me and is an attempt of a steam punk ish chest

First attempt at a contest posting!

Welcome to Bindweed Forest where our "monarch" Princess Alexis is visiting. ;)

The map was created by our head designer Rebecca Murphey - using photoshop and 90% custom art. Great job from the rest of the Burning Sun team!

After much work and adapting to sudden and surprising gifts of new equipment, I managed to complete a map. Woo.

A familiar place

I was hoping to enter this but I got hung up for most of the week on rigging problems in VSA and I doubt I'll have time to throw something together now. Maybe next time!

Best of luck to everyone. All your stuff looks great.

Hey all - been a while. Everything in this map except the blood and the chairs at the table (lunarea) is either RTP, Mack, or made/edited (depending on the resource) by me - but i attached the walls (I made these) as my original resource(s).

@Cel - the map is very cool looking. As an actual maker and not just a mapper, I wonder about all the curves once you actually try to walk on it instead of screenie it... Which part of the map is actually walkable?

IOW - you have tons of curves and non-linear stairs and varied cliff edges and so on. My experience is that - to use stairs as an example - the spiral looks fabulous in a screenshot, but then you can't walk a charecter up the stairs because rmvx uses 32x32 cube-grid movement. The stone circle you posted looks very cool, but I have no idea where you would walk or walk out of it, etc. Leaves me with the impression you have a screenshot that would look excellent in a story-telling mode, but weird (or even non-useable) in actual Player-controlled play. Am I totally missing the passable sections, or is it a 100% still-frame 0% function design?

@ Luchi - I really like that. Very retro, but nicely done.

@Leila - very well done parallax. Almost too good for the tiles it's with xD

Jesse - that's a lot of work there. Thanks for posting. Are there two drunk/laying-down people on the patio? It's one of the few things that looks strange to me, but a lot of that is cool.

Finally! I've been puzzling over why it wasn't working for two days now. Turns out all of my calculations were correct, I just forgot to give some events hitboxes. :kaoswt: Now my randomly generated maps check for collision errors, and move stuff around in real time if they finds any. :LZSexcite:
