Im sorry to say it will take some time before this project is done.
Theres been some changes to my plans, right now i only have a couple of hours a week to work on my project but if all goes well il get back to full time modding within a month. Its not easy to spend ths much time without my computer,m already starting to get withdrawal symptoms! (modding is evil):D

Heres what i got so far.

Act1 - almost ready(maby a few caves and some bugfixing)

Act2 - Just getting started

Act3 - only edited the town but im planing to redo all the maps coz those jungle levels irratate me :D

Act4 - Almost ready

Act5 - Havent even started yet (have an idea but im not shore how to do this so i wont give any detais yet)

When i have built up the word the way i want it to be i will concentrate on other features like items/skills and such, i have already done alot in this area to but there is still alot that i intend to accomplich.

Edit 1/12
Yep im still on a brake from modding! Oh no im hopeless! this is what iv done so far on my brake http://www.volf.biz/currently-working-on.htm (damn it! modding is addictive)

I might make it into a plugin sometime after my mod is finnished:
Btw: this map would make a huge plugin, the raw dt1 file is about 25mb and with ds1 file and sound file and such it might be up to 40 mb.
Anyway the map isnt still finnished, it seems to take forewer to edit the ini of endless amounts of tiles.

Oh forgot to mention, this docks map is the new act4 town.
Also i finnished act1 today, at least everything map related, so now il start working on act4, then il have to reethink act2 and 3 coz the filesize of my mod is getting to huge:

But now i realy will take a brake from modding. The next update will be sometime next month!

nice set you got there. But how did you make it change the player into a paladin? I'm guessing its a clone of the shadow(master/warrior) state that uses paladin graphics instead, am I right?

Reality is different for each person; What one person sees, another does not. It's all a matter of perspective. This is my reality, I'll live it as I choose.

Sorry your wrong but your still on the right track.
Basically i just followed Items To Morph Characters Into Monsters
by LiNkIn_PaRk (tutorial
.

What i did differently was i changed Gfxtype to 2 (1=monster 2 = player) in gfxclass column i put 3 (Amazon = 0 Sorceress = 1 Necromancer = 2 Paladin = 3 Barbarian = 4 Druid = 5 Assassin = 6).


Then the state was ready to use on my item :D




Edit:
Are you a serious gambler
I made some set related cuberecipes, wery risky to use but might be worth it!
Check it out here

Edit:
The last few days i hvae been converting itemgfx from shadowflare, and i also increased the inventory and the storepages, the inventory is now 6x13 boxes and stoorepage is 11x11 boxes. Heres a screenie http://www.volf.biz/Bigger%20inventory.htm

Your new inventory is huge :)

It looks good, but will charms be turned down in power? Since when you increase the inventory size you would be able to add more charms and could be a balance trouble othervise :)

I have already given monsters 2x their normal hp, but your right a huge inventory might still make it to easy and my goal is to make the game a bit moore difficult.
Il look in to balancing when i have the mod almost ready, might make monsters even moore poverfull or give them moore resistance.
Anyway i think its better to think about sush things in detail later on. :D

Iv been trying to make recipes that compress weapons and armor to small stones, however i got into trouble after writeing around 500 lines in misc.txt and 1000 lines ín cubemain.txt.
SVR fixed this bug for me and now you can se the result here http://www.volf.biz/Cube%20resipes%20Co ... 0items.htm

Edited bad link

Edit:

I have been working on an island map but i couldnt get it to work the way i wanted it to. Well today i suddenly figured out how to fix the problems an heres the first screenshot http://www.volf.biz/currently-working-on3.htm

Edit:
The island map is finnished and the screenie updated (same link above)

This week iv started on a new map for act 4 called The Under Water Passage,, you will find out later why its called that :D
se screenie http://www.volf.biz/currently-working-on.htm

The biggest new is that i finnished my gembag. Now you can store every gemtype in the same bag and for extracting you will need a gemlantern that helps you find what your looking for in the bag, more details http://www.volf.biz/Cube%20resipes%20Gembag.htm

Wow!

Your new map looks amazing. The blue light, does that come from the character or the area?

The blue color comes from the area, i did alot of editing to the act1 cave tiles and then i used fog and other objects to get a more underwater cave feeling.

I wish it was sailing :)
But my lack of knowledge about code and animation editing prevents me from doing so :)

Its realy a boat warp but i does give you the feeling that you have travelled to the island by boat

That would be my idealistic goal, however im afraid that if i continue to persue the idea of a completly new world of D2, this project will never be finnished.
