@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho
@  Elwood : (27 September 2019 - 05:52 AM) I still come here everyday because this is still my homepage in Firefox! XD
@  Ezra : (25 September 2019 - 03:07 PM) I also miss the days the forums I used were more active :(
@  Fire Blazer : (15 September 2019 - 05:39 AM) I do kinda miss the days these forums were active :(
@  Ezra : (29 August 2019 - 04:14 PM) *BOX!!!*
@  kirant : (19 August 2019 - 12:49 PM) Huh. Bothammer time.

smashed: no shading on the inside walls and... grass? Inside the castle? Hm, the rest of it is fine.

cheshire: some height errors here and there, it has perfect symmetry, which is far from a perfect map. and there is waaay too much open space.

snow: me gusta. still some height errors, otherwise this is damn good map

HT: got rid of the open space from when i last saw it. Although the bottom wall is kind of bland, it just repeats and is kinda boring.

Let's copy fuzz
Well:
-Smashed forgot to update his map so he told me to post the first one which was missing some shading. The grass is really well done however.
-Cheshire made a huge map. However like some people said I think it's kinda to symetrical. I really like how the throne room was decorated and the pillars look nice. Some parts of the wall aren't shaded but it still looks good.
-GrandScythe2: I like the bottom wall design but it is too much, maybe if he made the top floor go around the staircase. I like everything about this map except the throne room. I like that it's higher up than the rest but it looks too small compared to the other rooms.

I voted for..........................

There's a small garden around the throne room, which is in the middle of the castle. Think like Eirika's chapter 14 or so, where there's a bit of grass in Jehanna Hall, except more so. As for shading, where'd I miss? This is only my second map, and I'd like more details so I can keep improving.

Guess who I voted for. (hint: not me)

Why not do some feedback I guess

Chesh: Nice and big, I personally like a little bit of symmetry in castles so I think that's fine. I will admit that the chests somewhat bug me, but other than that, s'great.

Snow: In particular, the door outside the castle aligning with the wall inside the castle to make one straight line strikes me as a little bland. The chests and stairs also seem a little too haphazard for my likings. I love your use of carpets and grass, however.

Scythe: Holy bendy walls, Batman! They don't look at all realistic to me- as in, there's no need for them to be that twisty. Additionally, the floor looks like it could use shading in places, and the pillars are pretty randomly placed. Bonus points for the color theme, though. Everything visually fits together. Also, the fact that you have rooms in the middle of the castle, unattached to walls- albeit ridiculously-walled rooms- strikes me as adding fun to playing the map.

This might seem harsh but you wanted details so...

Red: you are missing shading here. there are some grass tiles with barely noticable shade on the top for the shading under the walls and some more noticeable for the left side (Chests need shading below them and to the left but since there is a carpet and wall you can't do this, just for the future.).
Yellow: There are some tiles for the carpet corners so you can use those so that the carpet doesn't look incomplete.
Green: I'm not sure if this is a rule but these parts look better if you use a pillar or a different wall tile (lyns chapter 4 has this tile it looks like alot of bricks). Since this is a castle I would recomend a pillar.

Hope this helps smile.gif

P.S. What do you mean by "haphazard", I don't know what it means:[. stupid spanish speaking country.

Thank you very much, Matt. I'll keep all that in mind for next time. smile.gif The walls in green were supposed to look like they angled down into the grass, like ramps, as sidewalls to the stairs.

Also, haphazard in the way I used it pretty much means randomly/carelessly placed.

Well, no one has voted in 2 days and it doesn't look like anyone else is going to vote so, I'm ending the voting. The first post will be changed.

Winner: (God it feels weird to say this)
Matt Snow A.K.A. me.

P.S. how do I make so that people can't vote anymore?
