Well, here I go jumpin' around again...
I was working on the Coruscant levels, but the other day, I learned, that when making terrain maps, they don't have to be made up of patches. This whole time all I needed to do was click that damn checkbox!
I can't believe I ever got along without it (Gensurf).

This practically cuts my editing time in half (or more).

So, in light my learning experience, here's a sneak peek, at a work-in-progress, on Level 1 of Part 2:

By the way, this is only a couple hours of work right here:


and Finally here's a little overhead view map of what the village does (and will) look like, and how it fits with the "Medieval Town"...

I would use Rgoer's tutorial on meta phong shaded terrain (located in his thread on this forum) (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=106198) to mix some different textures in with the terrain you've got going now. The grass could do with some variation, as could the rock walls.

Not bad for a start, though.

Well, I tried, but EasyGen keeps crashing on me when I load my textures. So, I'm gonna use a different method, that's just as effective...

I'll have that showcased....sometime soon. =)

Well, for the sake of wasting time (and learning how to use my new video editor)...

...I made a trailer...

A really crappy teaser trailer...
about 25 seconds of sheer fade-in-fade-out, magic. (with Music, dubbed, mind you.)

It's supposed to set the mood for Part 1 of The Rising Empire[i/]...
The best part, I think, is the music, which is taken from [i]Shadows of the Empire soundtrack (not the game, the ACTUAL soundtrack.).

So is it worth downlading? I dunno. It's 25 seconds long, and 1.75Mb. You decide.

Get the trailer here.... (http://www.pcgamemods.com/2310/)

The trailer is encoded with version 5.05, of the Divx Codec...
If you don't have it, get it at the link, below.

It's a good teaser - what else can I say?

More action next time! ;)
