potential Turf wars map?

Discussion in 'Build Showcase' started by EtherealPlane, Sep 23, 2019.

  1. Hey all,

    So I whipped up a Turf Wars map and decided to have a little toy around with what I made. The map is called 'Paladin's Keep', I've tried to refrain too much detail and instead just kept it nice and 3D.

    I'm open for criticism!

  2. Looks preety good mate! I'd love to see this added to the server. I play Turf wars a lot so I would love a new map right now lol

  3. Looking good so far! I am not exactly an experienced builder but I think the sides of the map could use another color in the palette, since grey and brown look a bit uninteresting on their own. It's not easy by any means to make it look interesting while having the attention of the players on the game but I'd try messing around with depth a little bit more.

    Otherwise, even though it's frequently used on Mineplex, I adore the medieval kind of theme. It fits very well into the rotation, in my opinion at least.

  4. Thanks! Feel free to PM me if you have any outstanding map themes you want in turf wars.

    I agree the palette and gradient was quite dull. Regarding block choice I haven't done too much but I've certainly amped-up the depth and detail as the old towers were lacking way too much. I'm gonna do this to all towers eventually.

  5. This is a really great and talented build. I could definitely see this becoming a map. However, I feel as if the map just being a square layout takes away from the rest of the build. Maybe you could add some pillars, or other things in the middle?

  6. I've taken a glance at the updated look, and I think the depth is spot on. When you're finished, I highly encourage you to submit the map, I'd love to see it in rotation.

  7. I mean I would criticize about this but to be honest there's nothing much to really criticize. It's a really good looking build and I feel like it would be pretty good for turf wars. It would be cool if you could make some obstacles like some of the other turf wars maps, other than that it looks amazing. Good use of colours, good detail.

  8. Hey buddy!

    From first glance, your map looks quite detailed, I quite like the surrounding structure of the map, including the general theme/style you went for. I appreciate the time you spent taking on new feedback and spending time improving upon the previous version of the map. Personally, I think a little more terrain change would be nice. By this, I mean maybe some obstacles on the playing field. Comparing this to other maps on the server, they have things such as stairwells and blocks placed that contribute to making the gameplay a bit more challenging.

    Overall, you've done well with the textures you've used, along with the blocks you've chosen. I would like to see this map eventually make it's way onto the server rotation for Turf Wars. I'd recommend having a read of the Map Submission Guidelines as these are super helpful and important when considering to submit a map for the server. Once you've read over the guidelines, you can submit your map here. I wish you the best of luck with submitting your map, and I hope to see it on Mineplex sometime in the near future.

  9. Hey all,
    Firstly I really appreciate the support and feedback since there's no better critique than off the players themselves!

    I've read and taken all replies into account and revamped the map quite a bit, re-doing the remaining towers completely and adding a few things in the middle including a pillared bridge to add more dynamic gameplay and competition.

    Obviously everything can be improved, but with that being said this will be the final version submitted;
