the grey blocks are shit and no matter how much I improve them or change them, they will always be grey slabs of sh*t.
This is a defeatist attitude. You know if you really decided to work on them you could get them to the point where you liked them. But you don't like them, so you don't want to work on them.
It is not a defeatist attitude. And no matter what you do to them, they will always be out of scale at this size. Also, if I was unwilling to work on them, why have I done all this over the last few days. You are sell me short their nole.You could make them the best looking blobs of grey ever and even then they would be out of scale. They are bloody huge and up to recently have not been a problem for anyone. We went through this map piece by piece including the impassables and adding the small rocks. There just has to be a time when radical overhauls have to be said no to. RB0 himself looked at the mock up last time and said it looked bad, this is just the same but with a few features on and made square.
They look much more intentional, as if the creators of the maze chiseled them and then intentionally put them there to make the slaves life more difficult. It looks like a maze, or a labyrinth.
Thats the problem though, like this it does not look like a maze at all. RB0 posted a decent maze and that is what a maze should be like. This is not a maze.
One option is not for each cell grid to be an individual block, but a grouping of them (i.e., you remove the borders of them on the inside of the maps blocks, if you know what I mean).
I know what you mean and will give that a go, but I still think it will look like sh*t.
I'm going to be nitpicky about the this, but the stones around the outside just don't really look good. Rock/stones don't have those features, even after they've been dug out
Does not matter, stone/rock comes in all types of formations. It could easily be passed of as a lava flow that has cooled or an out cropping that has been weathered after centuries. Either way, it makes not difference.
The brown ground layer that the minotaur is standing on is a bit confusing. it almost looks like an impassable.
Will look into it.
