Allow me to say, those look very sweet.
Very promising.

I hope to see a lot more :)

Well well. That is some NICE map editing there.

Oh yeah, and I love the thought of having my own room. You need to make some worthless items that are like furniture, but look like chairs when you drop em. Kinda like Animal Crossing.

Though that's probably impossible! :roll:

Anyways, keep up the good work. Yet another reason to skip work, i might add ;)

The Inn Cellar, location of your first quest :
http://www.planetdiablo.com/wot/joel/Screenshot051.jpg
Do I recognise the cellar of the thief guild in the docks of Baldur's Gate 2? Or no, not the thief guild itself, some other house where you could get your rogue stronghold....
Ahh, now that was a great game... too bad it won't run on my winXP box :(

anyway, am I right about the location?

The images we will be using come from a verity of games. Some you may have seen and some you have not. ;)
Sometimes we win with greater firepower, through sheer numbers or more powerful weapons, but for the most part it is knowledge that defines our victories. Know something and it has lost its power over you.

You know... These screenies looks very nice. It's good part of work. But... My suggestion: change floor types for any other (not these from d2). There are many good floor graphics in BG series. Change them!

And other looks good. Add as much new graphics (from infinity series) as you can - mod will look very very nice :mrgreen:

[quote=sPoT";p="156200"]Add as much crappy graphics that look pixelated, ugly and totally out of place (from those 6 year old games) as you can - mod will look very very nice :mrgreen:[/quote]

Ehm, no. Read some mod reviews on the Keep and you'll see what people think about import graphics.

Ok :cool: . So add some of them, because some of them looks great. Right now? :mrgreen: . And you can take other graphics form other games similar to infinity games: e.g. Lionheart, Prince of Quin, Divine Divinity, and others...

Just a few shots of some work done well I was away.

This is a shot of The Chamber of Passage.

This is a glimpse of The Forgotten Temple. (Act5 Town)

Here we have a monster of a project The Phrozen Keep.

Viva LA Revilultion! THis mod does look good, and I look forward to when it comes out. Probably before Doom 3. :)

Don't worry Rattlecage, I'm sure you can be really really fast. :) Or ask Joel for a PG-13 version. And for Joel, keep in mind, not everyone lives in Europe. :) Or Europa, which is 1 billion miles away. :)

We Americans are communists compared to the French, German, English, and Spanish people of the world. :) OR conservitives, one of the other. Take the Japaneses, tons of great games are made by them, but only few get all the way to america without much censorship, and can you tell why?

"I bet she F***s like a tiger!" Tales of Phantasia, Jap to Eng translation.
THey make great games, and sad to say, I've never seen Frenchmen up until you Joel that makes good games. :) At least, you're the only frenchman I know that makes mods and games. :)

Anyway, I shut up now before Joel whomps me. :)

Man, this is going to be one F'ing good mod. :firedevil: I can't wait to get you down here, Joel.
