Hey there folks, Bard here.

I think this is the right place to start talking about one of the few story maps that I'm currently working on. I haven't gotten far as you can see from the images below but I thought I'd get the ball rolling. Like I mentioned, this will map will have a story driven plot that you unfold as you go through the game. I'm going for a horror/mystery theme for this map as you may guess. I haven't yet thought of an official name nor a complete story, although I have a faint idea.  Hopefully, you can pitch me some suggestions regarding the gameplay. Looking forward to your feedback.

Something sinister is definitely afoot...

Awesome, can't wait to see it finished, lots of sick projects here but only about 10% of them actually come to fruition.

Update 1.0

Thanks for showing your interest folks. I will slowly but surely finish this map so don't worry (unless I go missing...). To keep you all posted I'll be doing these updates every once in a while. This is the first update of what I'm up to, so take a look and let me know what you think! You may need to zoom in, for some things.

There are some things in the background that I'm not showing just yet :P

Suggestions and Stuff

A suggestion of mine is to add creepy wallpapers. It's already creepy, but if you add some spooky walls, it just sends shivers down your spine. Also, maybe some blood on the walls? I noticed the skull monster, or cultist as I'm calling it now. It reminds me of a plague doctor. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plague_doctor

Thanks, Colby, your thoughts are always appreciated. Good suggestion about the walls. If you have any ideas for specific types of wallpapers please share a link or an image but I think I get what you mean and will add it on to my list! 

Oh, and do you or anyone else know what I can use to create or edit a texture pack? Haven't done such things before and I am unsure where to begin. Thanks.

Texture Packs and Wallpapers

For wallpapers, I suggest one like this from modded minecraft: 

For Texture packs, download this, and it on paint.net or any preferred image editor.

For texture packs, you work with windows, so I'd use paint.net, which is the best pixel editor I've come across. To get the old texture pack, download it from here: [url=https://kaalus.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/blocks.png" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">https://kaalus.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/blocks.png

Download it, and edit away! On the wiki you can find out how to use it in the game, or you can always ask me. :-)

Why don't you give my Horror texturepack a chance?
Some doors, hatches are made to look like regular blocks so you can make hidden passages.

On this Forum : Horror-Texturepack

You can also find it in Community.

Nice, I like a lot of elements in your texture pack Cursedth! With your permission, could I use some parts of your texture pack in the pack that I'll be creating? Obviously, you'll be credited for your input. I'd like to use your entire texture pack tbh but I have some things that I require to be different. Thanks for the offer, I appreciate it!

Update 2.0

I'll be away for a while working on the map and my studies so here's a very small update. Anyone familiar with Punch and Judy? They will play a part in the story, a Mcguffin if you will, of some sorts. Another thing I've been thinking about is the name for the map and I've chosen to call it 'Exodus', for the time being, suggested to me by someone irl. Let me know what you think. Oh, and thanks for the help Colby!

I call this painting 'The Insidious Figure'

I hate puppets

I had to look up Punch and Judy. (I'm terrified of puppets, especially the wooden ones). Plus I'm American, so I know nothing of puppet shows of that sort. That will automatically boost the creepiness to me. :-P

Hey Bard, if you want any help in the electrics or to add some creepy music, let me know. I'm looking for inspiration to bring me back to daily play here, heh.

I think I may just accept that offer, but it'll take some time before the map is ready for those kinds of touches. Thanks for taking an interest and will let you know when it's time!

Update 3.0

The project is not dead... yet.

And I need to choose a design for a switch. The following images are of possible switches in both and on and off configurations. If you have a better design in mind, please let me know.

Will need to do some more touching up before this becomes a final product, but do share what you think of it so far. Until next time folks.
