Hello, New world in the making

Post by nFz » Fri Jun 26, 2020 3:54 am

Hey all,

Edit: I will with time keep updating and posting screenshots of the new world as it unravels itself.

Long time player here on POL servers, and just wanted to drop by and say hi and show you a little preview of a big project im currently working on. It started in 2009 and due to medschool it was postponed quiet a few years. Now when im older and settled down its a big hobby of mine with support of my better half.
I decided on POL as im used to it, compared to sphere and servuo (osi copy) and im currently in the phase of learning the script language. Heard alot of good things of POL when it comes to stability and flexibility.

Below is a preview of the custom world thats made, some elements from other games like Path of Exile - Shapers realm has been taken into consideration and added. Altitude is done and the building of cities is currently the next step.

This started as a project for friends and family, but im thinking of taking it public and later hire a scripter/developer. Time will tell.

Welcome! The map does look quite neat. It would be great to see it in action.

Are you already hanging with us on Discord?

Hey all!

A small update, had to get UOAR to work properly, which it does now. Im currently building the cities and here is a small teaser!

Snow continent:
For ages the fortified <snowtown> has been at war with the barbarian tribe of the north. Rumors are their leaders, 3 of them, are of an ancient barbarian bloodline and rest atop a cold peak..

Update:

Hey all,

Been a busy summer, hope you all are doing well. down below is another screenshot of the town hidden in the snow thats really taking a beating from the northen barbarian tribe. The majority of the town is not damaged, as of yet. And im currently just working with UOAR, all details will be added with Centred+ later when the skeleton is done.

And another one, rumors are the stable in the north sell Snow Ostards and Steeds.

Looks like you are making good progress. Map building is such a tedious process. :)

It sure is! I usually go in with the right feeling else i just do something else or play any other game untill i get into the mood. Rushing a big project like this does not bode well for the end result. Tho its still alot of fun and im enjoying it alot!

What really does the trick for me is when i did the terrain i had every town-theme already planned out, PK town over water near the desert, the high fancy town of mages, the 3 different districts ruled by an emperor of the sand (good guy) the northen fortified town constantly in war with the barbarian tribe and so on. Going into a town without a theme is not recommended at all.

Another update, this time its the snowtowns outpost close to the barbarian tribe, hence a unguarded area so PKs are also allowed in here! There might be some fighting outside/inside this area as the barbarians roam just outside the walls.

This is all made before any detail work.

That was designed with UO Architect I gather. It looks like you are making good progress.

Yeah it was, i find it much faster to make the skeletons of everything i make in it. If there are any more advanced designed buildings ill make them from scratch in Centred+, which will be used to polish everything when this part is done.

And thank you, the more i create the better future-guide!
