A community map

EDIT: This project is now closed for new mapmakers, but you can still help by signing up as a tester!

Are you a mapmaking noob who thinks he's got no skills? Or a mapmaking vet who has no free time? Or a mapmaking noob who has no free time? This thread is for you. Let's make a community map. I'll start, and those who sign up in this thread should:

1) download the map
2) spend a few hours making A PART of the map
3) upload their work here for the next mapmaker

You can make WHATEVER you want to. Create a puzzle, write a short script, or just place another town and some mines and trees... It's up to you. The goal is to have fun making and playing a new WoG map. In addition, you can brag you took part in such a cool project.

Here's the map, and here's the preview of what I've done so far. Generally it is a story about a pilgrim traveling to the Holy Land and his adventures along the way, but it can be anything we want really. Download and play it to see how you would continue...

Current list of mapmakers:

OK, Dj, you're next! Choose a part of the map (south or east of mine) and make something!

The deadline is one week (but you can finish it sooner, of course ).

I'll tell you if you join! Seriously though, it's from an early version of the game, not my modification (just like RoE Market of Time, on Titan's Winter). This Gnoll Hut can be found on one map only (Gelea's Champions, underground), but you can copy it anywhere. Other than that, there's a slightly different campfire, a floating log and flags... not much. The game and the editor support all of them without any patches, but you'll need Sergey's object editor to use them (or simply download Pol's  "extra_objects" sample map from the WoG Archive).

There are various unfinished projects, of course, like Grove for example. Skywalkermg made some and if the new Grove team doesn't use them, I'll upload it all. Like this floating monk, for example... It's a blank object that you can script any way you want.

I have Sergey object editor but it comes only with a few crap logs, catapult and a fire camp. Other that it is an awesome tool. I will try by myself to get how those objects can be imported in WoG.

Good luck in making this map, I wish I could join, but all my few free time I spend on my "300" new scenario (did not started yet but wrote a lot of ideas down and thinking at scripts)

The gnoll hut(if you are talking about tree)can be found in campaign Trilogy of Shadows 3rd scenario. However, it is Armageddon`s Blade campaign...fishy?!

Would like to join this project but I have a terrible question :

I installed Acid Dragon's patch which changes some creatures into others (no more messengers or lava/icy sharpshooters for instance).
I did it the bad way so i can't remove it. I tried to get a new clean WoG version but i didn't manage to on my windows vista engine
My copied-pasted-from-a-former-computer old WoG still works though, i don't understand why.

Thus I am wondering if I edit the map and send it back to you, will it still work on your computers... Your map works on mine though.

No idea, but the only way to find out if it works is to edit my map a little and upload it for me here.

Don't do your part yet though - please wait and check this thread later to see what Dj will come up with.

Ok.
Let's check it out. I just put an emrald tower in the middle of the map, surronded by a water messenger and a lava sharphooter (which are a strange basilisk and a brown medusa for me ).
I hope the map is not corrupted now.

No, it's about mapmaking; you sign up here, download the map, and contribute to the project. Please wait for others to finish their part first. If it's still not clear, perhaps you should just keep your eye on this thread and see how it's done.

Again, the Gnoll Hut is neither a new object nor my modification - it already exists in-game.

I'd like to add some sunny beaches to this map at some stage! And yes, that's me asking to be put on the list.

No it's not.

I think it looks good. But if you're not happy with how it turned out, in the end you can go back and edit whatever you want.

Actually you were faster than I expected. Here's hoping others will keep it up.

Paulemile, you're next! I started the map and Dj introduced some early fights and resources. Download his version and let us see what you can do. The deadline is one week.
