So, as you may or may not have heard, MapCraft, are creating a Strategy for their first project.

Now, we wonder, what tileset shall we use as a base? Of cours, we'll be adding other tiles to the set, and removing some that were originally in there, but what tileset do you think should be used as a base set?

Complete the poll, and post what you think!

I like the village tileset the most (not sure why:)) and I also like sunken ruins alot but it`s a strategy map so I don`t know. But I say village as main tileset! :thup:

Thats a nice opinion you have, I agree with Suken Ruins though, with a strategy, and it's a realistic strategy, so I'm not sure you find big Tiles in the middle of the ocean!

I like Village Fall, because I am tired of green, and Fall is very beautyfull
Just to correct your english, it's beautiful, (for future references), but I know, the green is boring, but it's realistic so hey! :)

I like Ashenvale, its basically the ultimate tileset. Because it has so many varieties of tiles you can use, and they all go together well.

You can change this now in User CP
I'm in love with Felwood :D
It just has such a good atmosphere
shallow water, raise terrain slightly in places etc; looks wonderful ;)

Ashenvale is a lovely set, it's really calm, and natural, and... treeie?

Icecrown <3
Icecrown is, icy, but for a strategic map you see...

Felwood is lovely, especially for cinematic maps, but, well, yeh.

Yeah LUVE Felwood <3 for the way to create good moods BUT i wonder how it will work with a Strategic map? :confused:
Exactly. Felwood is still quite good though, it's nice and lovely dovely.

By the way, everyone, we will be changing the tiles around, we just need a base. :)

I picked randomly, Sunken Ruins, because of cool doodads and other stuff. :)

Sunken Ruins is good, but it's not realistic, as I've mentioned before, and although it could be Medieval, that'd only be if magicians were real (I mean like the Merlin type).

I didn't see the "storyline" ideas post that there willing be a medieval strategic war.

So, I decided to revote a combination of village fall and cityspace because they make a perfect castle war. xD

CUSTOM TILESET FTW

http://clanbom.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=347

You can open the map after using the weu enhancer by using any editor; including newgen.
This allows you to create a custom tileset with more than the default amount.

Plus while you're messing around on clanbom;

How to allow terrain to go up 90* and how to allow 480x480

While we're talking about 480x480, here's a small test I did with it. 480x480 is completely safe and takes up only 400-500kb total (without anything else in it)

Those are totally useless (except the MiscData.txt part). JASS NewGen already has those things enabled; you do not need to use WEU for it.

How do we increase the amount of tiles a custom tileset can hold than? Unless I'm missing an option to do that in newgen..

I don't recommend using the actual weu, just it's enhancer which still allows you to work on the map in newgen. Just with a considerably higher amount of tiles to choose from.

    They aren't cutting my responsibilities or interjecting in my management abilities or anything, it's just stupid shit that comes up. And they don't exactly have people lining up for my job, there's not that many people applying for the positions I hire
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, whatever. Thanks for listening guys
  • jonas jonas:
    Sure :) Let us know how it ends
  • Varine Varine:
    All of these things will end happily, they're just stressful. And I still lack many good friends that I can go to, and the ones I can are preoccupied with similar things. Thus general chit chat, cuz for some reason TH and Ghan and Tom all actively keep it up.
  • Varine Varine:
    Just gotta keep Miss Mazie up through the week until her shock wears off and she realizes that she still has family all around her, and bossman will do whatever he's going to do and I'll respond appropriately when it happens. Thank you all for the support, I do very much appreciate everyone being here for me through the years

  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Best of luck Varine!
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I just gotten myself an offer to work in China. The pay quadruples my current one. Damn.... Not really ready to start a new life there in China.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have heard that they pay pretty good to English teachers in China - you would be an expat
  • jonas jonas:
    Cool, what kind of job?
  • Accname Accname:
    I would be careful with jobs in China. They can be hit and miss depending on where in China you go. Places like hong kong / Shengzen / Beijing can be neat. Other places not so much.
  • Accname Accname:
    I would recommend searching for some first person experiences for the city you got the offer in. Especially now when the political situation in China is deteriorating.
  • jonas jonas:
    Accname, long time no see
  • jonas jonas:
    What have you been up to
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hey Accname, welcome back.
  • Accname Accname:
    Not much. Working in the Renewable Energy Sector as an IT Consultant. Its okay, but I think I preferred working at the university. It was more relaxed and you met all kinds of crazy people there.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I gotten a teaching position for Biology in a college in Wuhan (yes, there)... I suppose it should be fine there (I hope). Many of my ex colleagues are teaching in China as well currently (none in Wuhan though)
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    And I signed the contract already. I guess there's no turning back....
  • jonas jonas:
    @Accname how many hours do you work? I heard in some sectors IT consultants rack up insane hours
  • jonas jonas:
    @vypur85 sounds nice, have fun : )
  • Accname Accname:
    I am supposed to work 40 hrs a week, but I can work more if I like and I will be paid for those hours (as long as I don't go too far, there are laws and company policies, etc)
  • Accname Accname:
    In practice its basically work as much as you like, as long as the job gets done in time.
  • jonas jonas:
    Haha, my job is like that as well... that usually means I have a few 70-80 hours weeks a year, and lots of 20 hours weeks...
  • jonas jonas:
    a few weeks ago, one of my friends basically said "jonas, I received an invitation to submit something to conference X but I'm too lazy to do it and also the conference isn't advanced enough for my high level of research*, why don't you write something? Oh by the way, the deadline is in two weeks. Enjoy!" so I got two 80 hour weeks out of that kind offer. (*of course he didn't say those parts, but it's a better story this way)
  • jonas jonas:
    now I'll have next week off to make up for overtime :p and I'll play some good old gothic 2
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Hope you are enjoying that gothic 2~
