    You can vote in the poll above.

    Eden

    Eden is a peaceful land, a small desert valley separates the Humans and Dwarves, while the Elves live in the forested valley that separates the Dwarves and Orcs. Corruption is spreading beneath the surface, and brave warriors must vanquish the growing evil. Created by Aphelion3371

    Raelsian Peninsula


    Raelsian Peninsula is home to many treasures waiting to be found, to the far east there are ruins, and in them a tunnel, the entrance to a crypt that only the bravest of adventurers dare enter. Created by Sgnt Sneeky Pants

    I like the Misty Mountain but i just get to fast laggy on this map.
    So I voted for the Moonrise Valley since it is always a good map to roleplay.

    That wouldn't make a very good map. You should think of water maps being more like a long river than a deep sea.

    I'll talk to aphelion regarding player made maps but it may not happen as he usually needs to clean them up and do some minor tweaks to them. That and I'm not sure as if it would more so count as an update.

    uhm, do you know how to make a map? because thats the main oversight, since if aphelion is cool with it alright then, but I dont even know HOW to, once I do I will gladly make one ^_^

    I think its cruel that everytime I join eden is the map, and it is voted the least, and I have only ever experienced the amazingness of Misty Mountain once ;-;

    "Mapping" can be done simply, open your KAG Directory go to /base/scripts/maploaders/BasePNGColors.as
    From memory of the last time I had this discussion and from being on the server the map is 700 pixels long by 350 pixels tall. you will be mapping in the rough middle of that the tops and bottoms of your maps to be left empty for the pre-spawned angel and undead bases as well as the dungeon variants.
    With that information, (and any color variants that RP USES from your mods folder/rp/scripts/maploaders
    Open up an application like paint.net, gimp or similar other applications and decorate that middle section
    Forseeable issues with a water map is that players need somewhere to build so it would have to be a long channel with a bedrock layer between the "surface" and the underground. You could have tunnels from the islands to the underground bedrock on the exteriors so that the lower areas aren't floodable from above. But I see a lot of problems in doing that. This would also limit spawn positions, and while rushing to get your boats up and running would be important for instance the elven "island" could be problematic as it would limit space for elder trees.

    You could make a huge bowl of bedrock in the center of the map, fill that with water and islands. Make some hills with elder trees on the far west, for the elves, and some flatlands with a similar amount of regular trees for the humans on the east side. Put the orcs in a gold-rich area below the elves, and slightly to the east, and put the dwarves in an ore-rich area below the humans, and slightly to the west. The dwarves and orcs try to gather eachothers resources, and the humans and elves both try to conquer islands.
    Make a curved structure of bedrock in the center of the map, to allow access to the underground while preventing the water from flooding it. Then add a huge maze that leads to the dungeon, directly below the center of the map.

    Just an idea, but I think it proves that a water map can be as good as the maps we already have.

    A theory is by no means a proof. Whereas I've actually done mapping on my own. With the existant coding your idea unfortunately is not as feasible as you might think, the map is as I have stated, about 1/3 the actual map size due to the undead and angel areas as well as the dungeon.

    The map size is locked? So that leaves you only 100 of the 300 blocks to make a map with... Meh.
    You're probably right then. A water map needs to have a lot of stuff underground to explore, and if you can only tunnel down 70, maybe 80 blocks there's not much to explore.
    I guess that means KingChaos' dream is officially broken into tiny bits, and thrown into the abyss that is Aph's server coding.
