The Adventures of William Bligh

So, while waiting for SomerandomDude to return the map we're working on... I decided to try animations, then it became a map, then I did some eyecandy I think you guys might like.
I'm thinking if I put a few hours into it tomorrow I might be into the play testing phase. Then I'll spend a few months breaking my back in this chair modifying it 'til it's perfect.




But I digress, here are the pics I mentioned.

The Great Fortress

The Great Fortress (2)

The Great Fortress (3)




This is the cinematic.

Looks pretty good Hammerhands, it's good you've started making big buildings. I'll, once again, playtest if you want. Going to tell us anything about William Bligh?
And to make videos, use fraps: Fraps or something like that.

William Bligh Captained the H.M.S Bounty, whose crew mutinied in 1789. He was born in 1754, and died in 1817.



No, I'm not a history buff, I found his name in the dictionary while looking for a word. I decided I liked the way it sounded, and made a character of him. I hope no one gets offended.



Anyway, he sails to an island (Don't know why yet) lands with a squadron of hoplites. Everyone is ashore, and looking for food, when a kraken sinks their boat and strands them. Three hoplites have to do the grueling task of 'change unit type' so they can build a dock, and get off the island.
And that's about all We have so far. I'll update this thing here when I get more info out of my head.

Thanks, Winston. That'd be nice.

The twenty nine second video I captured is 280 megabytes. And I'd wanted to post it here.
Gods be. I'd need some serious High speed.

The one that isn't aligned with the lighthouse.

Hammerhands - AVIs are huge. You can load them into Windows Movie Maker (should be in accessories) and export it as a .wmv which is a whole lot smaller.

Actually, that wall is centered to the structure, it's the lighthouse that isn't centered to the wall, it's just that I centered the lighthouse between the two fortresses. Since I was using it as a doorway in the first place, I figured it needed to be centered to the walk way that led to it.

Would an MP4 be smaller? I've been trying to get Debut to work, but it want this, and that, and the other... and so one and so forth... because my video is about 125 seconds long.

The crew went and discovered the Pitcairn Islands afterwards, didn't they? I think they've made a film about that.

Are you planning to include historic facts in this scenario, or will it be entirely made up?



Sweet baby maizes!

I'm just using the name, actually. It's not even about him.

This will be my standard style of map, though I'm still working on a story line. Monsters, enemies, and too few allies. Maybe a bit of home style eye-candy.

I'll see if I can get that video posted tonight.

EDIT: posted the video link in the main post at the bottom.

What do you guys think of the cinematic? Need work? Adjustment? Modification? Lighting change?

It's pretty good. I'm no expert on cinematics, but I thought it was pretty good, the only thing I think you should change is the boat position, if they had just got off it, wouldn't it be closer to the shore? As I said, I'm no expert, just my opinion.

I suppose that would depend on the size of the boat. Many boats in those days had to stay away from shore and deploy smaller crafts to get the men ashore. But that's a good point.

Maybe I can find some thing to stick up there that might look like a small boat...
