Heh, I've done that same thing with the laser texture on a map that I never finished (hardly started, in fact). I'm sure it wil be cool as always.
Optimism is just a milder alternative to denial.

Sorry to wake an old topic, but I would love to see if there has been any progress on this map since you last posted Lou... Or has it become a dead project?

some of that material looks to have been used on the H2O map.

Sorry - this map has died a natural death. Too many polygons and not enough time to fix it. And you are right Green Manalishi, the original map idea sorta morphed into H2O.

I should be back making maps after the summer. I have been extremely busy at work and home (building a new deck, yay!).

Thanks for all of the kind words. I'll prolly be brainstorming over the next few months for a new map ;)
