Master Chief sprite anyone?

You could rip off the Vacbob sprites with a bit more class imo.

Oh so every result from an 'i'm bored, i'll do soething to pass the time' moment has to be perfect?

Soz, ignore that. I forgot to write that it was made from the vacbob sprite.

you may need to turn up your brightness to see it properly, it looked darker in preview than photoshop...

Oh so your excuse for the fact that you obviously put minimal effort into your work is that you put minimal effort into your work, and therefore the problem that there's minimal effort into your work isn't a problem at all?

Look man, just because you say you half-ass something doesn't make the fact that it's half-assed okay.

STOP!!!
I did say ignore what I wrote there, please don't take it like that. It really was a 5 minute piece of work, and I was feeling annoyed, so sorry that what I said came out like that.

For future reference, if you want to make sure that everyone ignores something you wrote the best method would usually be to delete it.

You really hate me, don't you? Otherwise you wouldn't make comments like that. The screens were those of maps that have taken HOURS to make, so thanks anyway.

Hey fish, it kinda looks like masterchief, I'll give you that. But I think you can get much better results if you copypaste parts of the masterchief from screenshots and align them on the vacbob image. E.g. copypaste masterchiefs helmet onto the vacbobs helmet.

Nobody hates you, except possibly for whatever voices in your head egg you on to think so.

They just enjoy making you think that they hate you, and that the entire world is out to get you.

But what if it was? Oh no... What if it IS?

First the tanks would come, playing songs over amplified megaphones, songs of your destruction and the triumph of the Red Army over the Fishmaniacs. Then the sharpshooters in the treeline would lay down a hail of bullets to keep you pinned down in your home. Finally, after playing Van Halen's "Panama" at high volume through giant speakers aimed at your house for 48 hours, they would send over some kind of commissar with an official document of surrender for you to sign, under which you would forever revoke your right to make maps, or involve yourself with the marathon community ever again.

Either that, or you'll just have to grow a thicker skin once again. You'll mess up, 'fess up, and you will get criticism, mostly sarcastic, snarky shit. I thought you were already used to this, no?

I don't think I've ever said anything negative about you, just your screenshots.

Surely your sense of self worth isn't tied to the quality of your screenshots? If it were, you'd try harder?

It took you HOURS to make a big room with irregular walls, pave it, and put a handful of trees in it? It didn't take five minutes, that's the joke, but surely it didn't take HOURS.

What is wrong with the screenshots?
Try harder.... hahahaha

Hours as in the whole damn map.
What's wrong with irregular walls, surely without them the map would look dull??

If you have a problem with me making ANY content for this engine, please tell me, because everytime I post something it's like "Oh that's crap, make something better." or "Try harder cos that sucks". Why do you never admit that you're wrong? Is There something wrong with your head? (don't reply to that bit :P)
You work on your stuff, I'll work on mine.

Thanks.

You post updates constantly. I think I've made fun of your screenshots or scenario twice. That's hardly every time.

I don't recall ever telling you to try harder or make something better, either.

Well I like keeping people up-to-date, ok?

And you still haven't said what's wrong with my screenshots.

I'd recommend putting some sort of frame around what I assume to be a terminal in the second and third screenshots. It also doesn't seem to be aligned quite properly, that logo would look better centred. The lighting also looks a bit mild in those two screenshots, I'd recommend making some of the areas darker.

I like how the background looks with the trees/rock/fog in those two screenshots, though, even if the foreground still seems a bit bland. This still seems like it could have some potential, but the lighting, texturing and architecture still need work.

Ah yes, I can see what you mean about the terminals, Thanks!
But that room doesn't look to good when you're right near the window, I might stick another screen of that room (but I'll fix the terminal first :D). Thanks for that [MUp] .

The Plasma Rifle looks awesome. Can you show some other weapons in action?

Now that's nice. It still looks a little low res, though.
