Maps take so long to make but I made this one and it turned out pretty good. I ended up learning how to use particle systems which I guess Is awesome. I'm not sure when I'm going to complete the map since I'm making this mod page like a month before this is going to be released but I was wondering if it was possible that if anyone knew how to create models for amnesia, they could make a good tutorial so I could make my own custom models, monsters, etc. But anyway, enjoy!

2 comments by nowac2645 on Oct 13th, 2014

I am now remaking the map Castle of Horrors! I knew that literally EVERYONE hated the version that's posted up now, so I'm going to edit all the maps, decrease the amount of bugs and add more detail. I've already edited a couple of the maps (Janette's room & Wine cellar) and hopefully, by next month, I will have finished the custom story I'm working on right now and complete the remake of Castle of Horrors.
I really hope that changes some of the ratings I've gotten lately.

You are a investigative reporter. There is a castle nearby that nobody dares to investigate but you do. Along the way, you experience terrible horrors...

I got to the part where you fall into this room and a monster starts chasing you. I get to the third door, and sometimes it's locked, and sometimes it isn't. I don't know if anyone else had that issue, but it's keeping me from continuing the game :/

Is the portrait of Alexander the end of the custom story?

I agree with the others. This story was a solid 9/10 after the two gatherers who were places in such spectacular locations. Then I went through the wine cellar. No scares. Laboratory. No scares. Open a number of doors, building up my anxiety? No scares. Even changing Alexander's portrait would have scared me.

I will reserve my rating until a future and more polished version of the custom story.

Excuse me but, who do you actually agree with? No one rated it 9/10.

And no, the potrait is not the ending.

I do not mind. Go ahead. Although I'm going to make a patch so you can wait for that or play this.

not so much creativity shown.. only empty rooms and corridors which i really hate, no scary atmosphere, lack of challenge.. etc. still you have some potential, you used some custom entities and textures, there was music and some events you wrote a little story which was a bit lame but not as much as the title of the mod, use something better next time. fill the rooms with stuff make the areas smaller, make harder quests and scarier events. don't give up on editing, just try to concentrate on these points! 4/10

You know, the "lack of challenge" part is probably because I had no idea how to use if or else. Except the "if(asTimer" or the "if(GetLeverState" or the "if(alState != 1", simple stuff like that. It's okay now, I know how to use them better. For my next custom story, I put many more objects and made a better atmosphere (I'm not trying to brag or anything).

Lowest Rated (4 agree) 2/10

Positives: - Scared me a few times - You created a story line Negatives: - The most empty and bland story I've ever seen - Low creativity - Very simple quests - Bugs - Every map looks more or less the same - How was I supposed to survive the brute part? - The explosive mixture created itself? :/ - Poor ending Conclusion: You created a story line. It's poor, but it's something. Sadly, 95% of the story is nothing but empty, long corridors. To be honest, I could barley finish this story because I was…
