"Time-Crash" Clerical's Adventure/Challenge Map
« on: December 19, 2013, 01:02:13 PM »
Time-Crash

Game Statistics
Map Name: Time Crash
Map Type: Challenge Map With Story Element Added
Map Size: 5.6MB currently (Was 12.5 before i coppy/pasted onto a new map)
Map Total-Rates -Over 2000 Across 3 different versions. i re-pasted the map often to decrease MB before the update.

Time-Crash Is a map i started working on just before 1.8 Was released, Although i only it months after 1.8

The Story Behind Time Crash.
Time crash story evolves around A Demi-God of time which has been missing for awhile, as the adventurer your mission is to find/rescue him, soon as you start the quest you have to go to 3 different temples to get 3 different talismans. each around one element (Fire/Water/Earth).
Then the Talismans will allow a mortal to travel through time. then you have to go through different Times in the past and future, and locate certain items and locations in a attempt to find the missing demi-god.

Inspiration Behind The Map.
I needed an idea for a map that allowed me to use many different styles of building, but also wanted to prove to people that first maps do not have to be colored pathways and little to no detail.
So Decided to center my map around a story of time.
The Story allowed me to use different styles and color schemes which you normally would not be able to experiment with.


Map Details

Adventure Mode:
When you enter through the doorway to the campaign you will arrive in the main hall, in here there is NPC's that explain the story, But its your choice to whether you want to read them or not. Currently only have 3 parts of the campaign finished,
Water/Fire/Earth Talisman, When you enter one of these,
you will find you self in a big room with a dragon in it, you will have to climb your way to the dragons head to speak to the Dragon Tamers. they will give more info to do with the story, but that is only a fraction of each campaign, each challenge has an average of 10 challenges, each gets you closer to you're goal.





Hall Of Fame:
The H.O.F kind of speaks for it self, But in my map To get on the hall of fame you need to message me to turn off your fly as it is on by default, you will have to get to the end of the campaign without fly in order to be put in the hall, but in each H.O.F room there are 2 sides, 1 is for beating the campaign without fly, and the other is for Finding and reaching the Secret Signs.





Info Sector:
This Area on the map is where there is a few portals that take you to different areas. This section Just gives people something to read for those of us who like details and want to know some info that can help people.

List of builders i respect.
List of worlds i like
List of youtubers that do total-miner video's.
General info on the map.
General info on the host.
Goals
Need to come up with ideas for the others as this map still has a lot of work to be done.





Other:
Other is just a section where i put things that don't belong anywhere else.
So far it has unlockables, A PvP Arena, And a few realy simple challenges for those who do not understand that its a challenge map.





Problems Faced With The Map So Far.
Recently had to copy and paste the hole map onto a new one as was 12MB before i made the Jump, People couldn't connect and would leave as they were stuck in the floor for 5mins.
Very time consuming but map works so much smoother, Still a little lag as map if very compact Although it being underground dose help.

I also had to make all the challenges easier 4 times, 1 because of the 1.8 update and the other 3 as requested by multiple people. each time had to change every jump and test them.

The map has been a solo project for me so haven't gotten any help other then the suggestions and feedback from the community.

Also with this map being my first attempt at building i had to do all my learning on the way, but after me seeing tens of thousands of maps i already had an idea of what type of building style i should start with, Also had to build certain things for my challenges such as Boat/train/plane, but had to build them quite big to go well with the rest of the map so had alot trouble with them and took a long time to complete.

Your pre-existing artistic ways shine through. i must admit there isn't much competition in the challenge map scene X] I thoroughly enjoyed it. Balanced difficulty, nice aesthics, good themes. i hope you add more eventually.

It's very nicely layed out and has a story component. And the challenges arent just a standard "jump there, crouch there" etc. The only thing I can think of wrong is but a small fix:

The sun blocks really boost the size and load time of the maps. If they get to be a problem, replace them with the gold block... you get almost as much light and none of the massive size jump caused by torches and sunblocks.

Agreed, i was testing with the floor awhile back, but gold makes the floor seem quite abit darker then the rest of the room, its something id do when my map gets near 9MB again, then ill half the amount of torches and replace sunblocks with gold.
