A single mission i made, please no hate comments, as you will notice iam an amateur, i wouldn't mind some comments saying what i could improve on and i will do the best i can, Update: just some stuff not worth downloading again
Can you give us a bit more info about the mission?
yh its just a simple mission like defend and then attack, its very simple i wouldnot mind any feedback for improvements,
lol, the guy on the picture is epic!
looks like a zombie
Just tested your mission.
I'll provide feedback and opinion.
Firstly if this is your first attempt at a men of war map and mission, I can say you got some basic things right and others quite a bit wrong.
Firstly the good points:
It didn't crash during my play through.
It included environment and lighting.
It included objectives (although incomplete/lacking detail and explenation)
Objectives as apparently designed seemed to function and were achievable.
Lack of map detail
Lack of script detail i.e. things like clustered unit movements.
Lack of story
It lacked the infomation for objectives to explain task without guessing.
Setting/battle seemed random and confusingly ahistorical (russians vs germans alongside usa??)
Units under player control did not have their movement set to 'hold' by default.
Most of the scenario was conducted by the AI (not always a bad thing aslong as the player isn't left out).
Overall effort seems a little rushed, thats despite taking into account your statement of being amateur (we mostly all are around here), I would expect a little more 'finished product' than this before posting it out into the community, including play testing or getting friends to give feedback beforehand.
If this is your first attempt and your looking for lessons on how to improve, I recommend reading the forums at DMS and looking at other maps others have made to get tips. One good map for a beginner to look at is Bonus mission 3 Battle of Vernon. Its simple enough to learn the basics of how things can be done and you can modify it and practice changing things (it wont overwrite your game just save it as something new)
Best way to learn is to look at whats been done before and trial and error. Sadly I rate this one as mostly error but dont take it badly, it just needs quite bit more work. Making a great mission takes a huge amount of effort.
wow, ok, I appreciate that, ill try and work on it
perhaps i'd wait for a improved vision
a new version?
yh but no point downloading again if u have already just a couple of tiny changes
what are the new things
Nothing much just some entities like rocks and trees and better scripting, eg objectives,,
so no more the empty space?
