Status Update Stage 02 V0.01

This is just a rough layout and lemme tell you it has a impressive size.

The current mapsize goes with 236/199 Hexes almost more than 2 times the size as before !

Hello everyone, sadly i am not progressing as fast as i did with Stage01, reasons are that i have never worked on a cave map and all over it is hard to get a proper looking layout with the walls. trying my best to deliver V0.1 today.

Word of advice: Never try to be TOO ambitious. Stick to what you know, and what you can produce. Baby steps. Start small, then gradually (slowly) improve by challenging yourself with one new thing.

Your surface map looks good, but there's a ton of bugs. You need to learn to use the tech items before trying to make a cave. Caves require scripts and code; you'll need to link an entrance map and an enter map. If you can't do that stuff on your own, then don't bother making it. Baby steps.

Take your surface map, add the border hex blocks, then the screen blocks, then the exit grids. Once that's done start using the entrance blocks, then the wall blocks, then the solid object blocks.

If you try to over do it, or over challenge yourself, or get too ambitious your projects will eventually collapse out of frustration when you're breaking your mind over trying to figure out something you can't already. Waiting for help is even more stressful when it doesn't happen in a satisfying time frame.

Don't get discouraged, but remember that before you jump into the pool you'll need to learn to swim, AND before learning to swim, you'll need a bathing suit. Both require money, so you'll probably need a job lol...  Baby steps.

corosive i want to marry you , u wanna make some scripts for this puppie ?



on a serious note now , corosive is 100% right , better do other stuff till u get used to it. i know people who mapped alot and still are cursing at cavemapping.

on first level i would just remove the curbs which u are used to set some path , 1 tile size of a path isnt a good idea ... minimum in my book is 3 tiles ... the rest looks ok for your first attempt , just read what other people said here e.g. dont mix too much assets like VC into other stuff etc.

beside all that i wish you good luck and happy mapping.

Spoiler: show

why thank you alot, (why obvious things are obvious) i am not completly lost as in creating maps and desining layouts etc. but this Cave generator is a huge help, and that for i can finally deliver a proper looking map after having it reworked in a couple of days (real life stuff ...)

Heya everyone, i actually have a stop for now cause i have to reconsider my ambitions to create this dungeon.

I need some answers to the following questions by people who have proper knowledge about this.

1. what would you say is a fair Level to enter this dungeon (it will host all kind of dangers and is supposed to be increasing from level 0 - 30+)

2. Will it be sufficent to have a 24-72 Hour real life Cool down for the mission (you can re-enter it for 4 IRL hours), aswell trying to get it working that people who enter the map will have this cooldown aswell instantly (so people cant just go in that mission and do it again right after they are done) (FYI i already have implemented a 6 player Maximum per Stage)

3. Is there an agreement that you can or can't place Powerarmors / Magic lockers in Maps, and if they contain it should it be harder to obtain?

4. Are there any certain rules written down for mapping so i dont have to ask anything else ? cause Kilgores "if the map is good" is not really a suitable guideline to work on or with maps.

Thanks for reading i would really appreciate some posts here so i can continue on my map balancing and hopefully deliver before wipe.

you should just make a complete map and let devs do the rest if they're interested in it. I don't think you should put any NPCs in it
