Given the setting of DCD, nearly anything you dream of can be realized as a map! Accordingly, this week's news release features a little concept art to help inspire would-be mappers realize the variety of possibilities available to them as members of the DCD team!

    1. Kiyoko's Map: What would inspire a ninja to dream of pinball? Who can understand the inner workings of the subconscious? Transported onto a pinball playing field, players will be able to use the bumpers to help prolong combos or man the flippers to tally points, increase concentration levels, and deliver damage to unwitting opponents!

    2. MJK's Map: This map isn't much to look at (I'm working on a deadline!). It's just a level playing field where the champion will be determined wholly according to how well he/she can parry, block, and link combos! Expect dramatic summonings and finishing moves to separate the living from the dispatched!

    3. Mina's Map: Late night pizza pantry raids and nostalgia caused Mina to dream up this 16-bit goodness. This map will feature play-altering power-ups! Word.

    4. Marrish's Map: Marrish’s madness is evident in his dreams. This map features the architectural styling of M.C. Escher. To complete this vision, relative gravity will be implemented.

Quote:why not do actual work on the mod?

At the risk of repeating myself, I personally have created, skinned, rigged, and animated (and won an award worth $395 doing so) 11 characters. This breaks down as 4 playable characters, 3 alternate costumes (requiring extensive re-modeling and re-skinning from the base characters), 3 summons characters, and one side-kick.

I'm pretty sure that this counts as 'work' and 'content' :) .

For information as to when you can expect to see some 'real content', please see the PrSchedule.txt (once my host does it's job!).

tbh this mod scares me, I wouldn't ever download it - but this is just my preference. The mod is really coming along fast, and I hope it gets released :)

instead of focusing on promotion and ego why not do actual work on the mod? Open Radiant and map these instead of showing off or the mod may fail, Gargoyle Arena style.

(I learned that the hard way)

For thos who are saying this isn't real content You obviously don't know what your talking about, pumping out hundreds of model renders is far less important then creating innovative level designs and gameplay mechanics.
