New screenshots of the map "Battlestar Aurelia", Outline TWO with a new area to be shown: the Messhall

This is by far one of the many mistakes I have seen a lot of RPG-X mappers make when I was still active within the RPX-X community. Big impractical rooms because the premise was supposed to be to have a very big ship. Some examples would the USS Nimitz Bridge area, the Normandy (Mess hall) and there was the Voyager-A map, which had multiple design flaws (rooms too big, rooms too small, endless corridors).

Mapping is difficult and it is very easy to make the simplest mistake. Too bad that a lot of promising mappers decided to give up and abandoned their RPG-X projects, which led to the demise of available content for RPG-X, especially when you compare it to other games, such as the original Doom, Jedi Academy/Outcast and the original Command & Conquer to name a few ...

I didn't want to believe it but after this weeks 'episode', I'm starting to believe that TLO isn't that what it claims to be.

That being said, I do hope that you finish that Frigate map. Your version looks so much better then the version I have seen with their Ultimate Edition.

I do intend to finish that map, it would be a shame to let it go to waste . . .

Thanks, I wasn't aware that the [ quote ] feature was working in the comments section. I tried it a long time ago and at time, it didn't work as it works now.
