Yeah thanks Gimil :) I was thinking of "key by gimil" somewhere maybe :P haha. I dunno.

I tried making my own one, looking for the deeper cut, but then I thought in terms of a laptop keyboard, that style is probably more appropros.

I was thinking of putting a laptop "nipple" there... it's really just as an impassible border separating parts of the keyboard for gameplay. "ergonomicish". the split is along the appropriate line, but I coudl just as easily grow the keys in the middle to fit the hole if wanted.

I like it! Keep up the work from there and this map will start looking bling before you know it.

neat idea...
if i was making it i would use the keyboard that is kinda like 2 pieces, with the division in the middle, to spread it out. maybe you could give a bonus if someone owns like a diagonal row of keys...

Not Yet sorry folks. I've been on holidays and now I'm preapring everytihnf ro next term.. hopefully nest week or the week after I'll get to have some time to play, so I'll move it forward then. Thanks for all the commentary and suggestions, I've taken a number of them on board, and will be adressing the others when I get a chance to.

Keep your eyes peeled... use that carrot peeler there. you'll be able to see the "halls of blood" map really well!
(discliamer: there is no current halls of blood map, and no I'm not creating one :P)

Oak - for the connections, could you handle the green dots -only- inside the image, so show vertical/diagonal connections only. And it is stated that all keys attack horizontally along their rows.

I've make up a "to do" list, and procrastinate on my CC work, as much as I've been putting off the work I -have- to get done for Monday. But that will come with time :)

Cya'll soon!

Those holes aren't necessary. The "A" key is almost never directly underneath the "Q" key--it's just a little offset. So make the caps, enter, and shift keys a little longer, and remove that gap. please.

Don't get too excited. We haven't heard a peep out of this map since April.

combination of the two. I've just been stupidly busy at work this term. hopefully next term I'll have a bit of free time to get back onto this. I still want to finish it, but yeh, my free time is negligent at the moment, and what I do have, I have other priorities for at the moment :P but yeh. Thanks for the continued support :P I'll get onto it when possible.
