Small summary of todays stream:
I found out how to activate noise cancelling which makes it now nicer to follow the stream.

Again we were online for 4 hours and worked on the first floor of a stone golem spawn.
It was fun. We also had @eiserne festung on the line spoke about mapping techniques, our history of mapping, fails and fooled around.
Next time I will continue on that piece and extend it. There are going to be fire elementals and behemoths deep down into that spawn.
I will probably stream tomorrow or in 2 days again.

Nothing exciting but here are just a few images from todays outcome:

Thanks bro, always nice to have you around!

Yesterday we finished our stone golems and also the fire elemental spawn.
I also started to figure out something easy and fast for behemoths that doesn't take ages to extend.
I will continue on that on tuesday.
Every now and then I am also streaming on my discord channel. (daily but only when it's <1h)

I wanted to say this after few weeks but there is one thing...
on the top of the white frame wall in house I would put butters, or replace wall with tree wall...
man butters are perfect for this place - there wouldn't be white color so straight and contrasting :)
Anyway i love this climate and color palette, probably other 20 people too ^^

Thanks man, but unluckily this piece is just a copy in style and I have only imagined how the competition piece would maybe look like further to the east.
I wanted to heat up some discussions around the competition and as I heard I was very successful. I apologize for this little joke if anyone felt fooled.
Anyways I really loved entry #4 and experienced that it's a very easy, clean but excellent style. Congratz to who ever made it. Very lovely piece overall! 🥰

Little update on the streams: I had break of a week since I felt sick, anyhow I am gonna be back on the weekend and publish more maps. :)

Cheers

I did not know you were streaming on twitch.
Do you stream RME mainly? If so, count me as a new follower/viewer. ;)
Yes I do, I was recovering for some time but I will be back soon. Yesterday we had a short session already.
Probably tomorrow will be another one. :)


I am planning to release a whole set of tutorials about evolving maps in general,
improving details or how to plan for specific areas/styles from a beginner to a little more advanced level.
Let me know what kind of issues you guys always had and what could be nice for newer mappers who do their first steps nowadays.
It can be anything that is missing/insufficient right now.


On my last stream I was finishing the basic behemoth spawn from a couple of weeks ago.

Deep down in the underground there is an active cult.
It's going to spawn as soon as someone wants to touch the cursed chest.

In addition it's time to post my competition entry from November here as well.
I hope you enjoyed it!

The following pieces and others that will follow are not especially made for showoff.
Aesthetic is not the main focus at the moment. I hope you enjoy anyway!

"The abandoned part of the 'Old Westwend Village' is a dangerous place to be.
The pest has almost killed all the inhabitants before the road was shut down and barricaded."

p.s.: Rising Continents is growing every day. The first two continents are about to be finished soon.
More information to follow within the next month.

To be honest, I do not really understand the issue you have. Not from the explanation, nor did I ever witness light source issues recently.
Cheers!

Getting a little closer towards my short-term goals.
First hero spawn I ever made.
