Scary maps need to be more subtle. Splashing blood all over the walls does not make it scary, just tacky.

The rooms are badly textured and terribly lit. That wall that Art commented on is floating. No doorways have doors or frames. Much of the light doesn’t have a source. Props are bland, thought needs to go into the entire design and layout. Ravenholm is a creepy place, and where blood is used, there is a reason for it. Limit the blood use and obvious corpses. Make things that people will not expect.

Imagine walking through a deserted hospital. You open a door and find that inside is perfectly clean, like it is new. A man is in the bed and a doctor is speaking to him. Outside the window is a perfectly tidy garden. However, you know that if you were to walk outside it would be ruins. It is two normal environments that should not co-exist.

And so the OP rates you dumb…

Forget this thread, this kid can’t seem to take criticism.

Looks awesome, put more blood on the walls and put a weapon on the ground.
Then release it.

IronPhoenix this is a w.i.p. …

If you didn’t want criticism, why post it?
:downs:

It can still be scary even when it’s NOT subtle. But you really have to do it well. And this is not well done yet. And please, please turn up your anti-aliasing for screenshot taking. You don’t need a good framerate for taking a screenshot. :confused:

If you didn’t want criticism, why post it?

u.u because i want to know what people think about my map
it doesn’t matter if its a positive or a critical post.

if it was a positive …good for me…
if it was a negative i’ll try to find whats wrong in my map and fix it.

o.o’ PS: again sry for my bad english. D:

guys whats the name of the entrity that makes you have the flashlight?

:facepalm:

That’s exactly what criticism is. It’s telling the creator their opinion of what they like and what they hate in the map. Unfortunately you’ve not got much to like for a horror map so far.

Item_suit I think.

It looks like you have a leak.

And?

Take criticism or you will end up a shit mapper. Learn what makes something scary. For example i found areas in ravenholme much more creepy to Doom, which i found predicable. In a world where something is established to be the norm, anything different can be used to worry the player.

Look at my maps, i didn’t get there by ignoring everyone.

Your maps aren’t that great either… :confused:
