Default [added] Lavastorm home

working on the map.
here's a preview, just a lazily done photoshop paintjob.
got inspired by the movie Tron, hope such a design is ok

This isn't an official EQ2MAP thing, but my personal view is that as nifty as it looks, it really doesn't fit with the game with neon on a black background.

For consistency, imo I'd prefer to see it on the normal paper background. You can do cool colors and stuff with it, the preview just looks a bit much.

that's not neon lights, that are laser beams infused with the fire of Lavastorm and the Ice of Everfrost. Well, I've seen other maps here that dont use the template or a similar withered away parchment like texture.

I think it's just wrong to have everything on parchment anyway, you know EQ has even instances on a spaceship, tinkerers, technology. It's not like we're playing Lotro and are bound by conservative rules like that game.

I myself have yet to see any map in game come up without the standard texture. And no its not like LoTRO but this isn't swtor either nor tron. Not to mention its a house map right? Seems a bit much for a house floor layout. And wait you said not neon lights yet mention tron.

Actually I have created maps that do not follow the standard "map look" but when I do that, I am using the actual textures from the zone itself.

Example:
http://maps.eq2interface.com/map.php?zone_id=543

The map does look a little strange with the neon looking lines.

Code:
<ImageStyle Name="home_lavastorm" displayname="Lavastorm Winter Retreat" menugroup="Lavastorm (Island)" zonerect="-125, -323, 101, 17" >
<ImageFrame Source="images/maps/map_home_lavastorm.dds" SourceRect="0,0,800,1200" />
I let this map rest for 2 months cause I was pissed off by your reluctance to accept a cool looking light-saber style map, so here's a quickly done traditional design instead to please conservative minds.

To bad it's not textured, but i think this is the best we can get.

thanks for using the map.
yes it's not textured, but I like the clean look of lines. textures can look bad also when it's overdone. Maybe I make another one with some simple textures or paint sometime.

actually I was thinking you could have used the "TRON" style map (which I never made) and put an ad on it like: If you think this map sucks like we do, go to EQ2MAPS and learn to design better maps, it's easy" - or something like that and then replace it after 1-2 months with a better one.
