Hallo Valery, you Bloody Furie, you mustn't feel sorry for me. :D

Who if not you knows about my (missing) skills at the best. ;)

But I fear if you, the Pacifist, or benbird (or whoever of the real champions) test Yurian's maps, players like me would have never get a chance to successfully win the maps even on novice level. 8|

Sepultun is far away in the west, and Nagraelle's army is too weak for having a chance to defend (not enough resources for developping both towns). :sad:

Hallo Koni,

Yes, but a good challenge is what it makes us replay the map, over time as well. And if there is no time limit, a 60% selected difficulty should cripple the AI enough to make it accessible to any level player, that's how SOD works.
And there are cheats as well, for those who struggle but want to complete.

Battles do not have to be impossible to have a challenge, just with various ideas, like different IA heros with fun specialties, specific spells at choke points, interesting quests (not walk the whole map for a centaur axe then back to open some guard) and so on. SOD is still the best challenge because it asks complexity within simplistic editor commands.

Anyway, the tester role is not to show to the mapmaker how to make maps, but to find glitches and give suggestions for a better balance etc.

New demo version of MoS II map 3 at the Maparchives

Postby Yurian Stonebow » Nov 4 2010, 17:27

@benbird, Koni and Salamandre:

Thanks for showing support. It means a lot to mean for I've been really working my *** off on the campaign and trying my best to constantly improve the quality of the campaign by making all those endless small updates to the three maps currently under work (out of the projected five) that together make the Second Sighisoara campaign.

I've prepared a new version for you folks to try out and stored it at Bytebanditmaps II. Once you get to the Steve & Pol owned site, please see map archive II, then select Files and once you get there search for a folder that has my name on it. The Demo version is there along all my other works, including the updated version (1.2) of my H3:RoE XL map called The Dark Continent which has not been released here on Celestial Heavens despite me contacting the Staff a couple of times about it.

I wish you the best map testing sessions, and please: do not discuss the map here in public, but instead send all your comment, ideas for further polishing of the map, criticism and the like to me, Koni and HeroOfPunk, our too often absent Leader.


With solidarity,
From Me To You,

Yurian
Project Coordinator for the Sighisoara Team

If you like, I would be happy to playtest for you as well (I think I'll have enough spare time during the next week or two), but be warned that I'm by no means experienced :)

Update on the 6th of November 2010

Corlagon has been made the newest member of Team Sighisoara's Map Testing Departement. Thanks for joining the New Continent project! ;)
Map testing for "In the Name of the King" is in process, and the results arising from those sessions are being carefully analyzed by the Map Making Departement.

Map 4 of campaign II is being planned and discussed by the Team. As per Yurian's latest suggestion the fourth part of the said campaign now bears the working title "Scared to Death".

If everything proceeds smoothly the new 5-part campaign shall be released by Christmas/New Year.
