You know that using those smiles or shall I say smileys is my style
why to repeat that there is too much of it
I know.. I am trying to fight with it but I am losing almost all the time
Let me try my skills when i will talk to zydonk
You know me even better so you gave up telling me not to smile to much
a good reader picks what is most important from the reading text
But gentlemen I will try to do my best
mark my words
How dare you to accuse me of producing a/the map/s machenically, I see you know nothing, why you ask, let me explain, a good mapmaker, or mapplayer will notice or probaly have noticed that I do all my maps manually, I have never used Random Height Generator, at least yet.
I do not unfortunatelly know what Euclid is. I know what Corel Draw is, but it is unbelievably expensive here. So as I said all my maps are created manually, I see you must know a litle, a drop in mapmaking world, becuse you accuse of mechanization or even mass production of my maps.. Well such a tool like FlaMe 1.10 which I find excellent to work with is far more advanced than flame 1.2 on which i worked for about 6 months..
FlaMe 1.10 allows to create a map the simplest one in 3 minutes, bad in one hour, satisfactory over two hours, all depends on millions of factors. There are maps that you have to spend 10 or 20 or 30 hours with, but now the time is shortened amazingly. Yes using a map like Squared, allows to make 1/4 of it and then copy and paste to the remining rest, but !
making this 1/4 still needs time.. in case of Octopus it was about 5 hours, which prolongued to 7 including copying. I used old of my squared, yes, but only as a place pattern, all the rest is ruined, and varied, but you must have noticed that, yes you did, didnt you ? The height, the base size and finally its corners in some places and of course multiple entrances. Also copying and making the right part to copy is tricky.
I see you have done a lot of maps and know a lot that you can call a map like Octopus mechanically produced.
I see sentence about a map leading to a level of obsession.. here i smiled to myself, well.. listen really carefully, mapmaking is my kingdom and at least temporarily, the hobby, the thing that gives me a lot of pleasure and satisfaction, and the truth is if i want I will make another 15 versions of Squared, especially that some extreme versions are very popular, which you have probaly noticed too. I will make them becuse I am free of ideas, and full of ideas and as you probaly read above, I have good memeories about the Squared map, maybe this is to ambiguous sentence, so I wil explain, I mean by that that I have made great friend on original squared, I learned how to play on it, and I had unforgettable battles on it in the past. I made my pattern I will continue.
If you want to, if you can, make your maps, I will even make a psychological portrait from it. But do not judge by appearance, try to calm down your anger which to be honest I do not understand, maybe jelaousity ? If you need type as you do at my mapmaker friends posts, some deep notes, I remember some, but here try to expres value of created work, based on some respected facts, not emotions as I can clearly see, I remember once here was one post removed from my thread, allso full of anger, was that you.
And If you see a map and tell that it is mechanically produced, then think for a while how much effort someone must have made to do it, it is sometimes more sometimes less, or respect the Idea, do you have Ideas ?
