Killing the Drayk and Icy Spectres in the Crystal Caverns? in Geneforge 2

what are you talking about? "you shouldn't attempt to kill it without a high level party or trainer or other MODs"??? I killed it with no higher level then the unregistered version with 2 Thahds and 2 Fyora. all of them extremely weak, and died in one hit from the Drayk. however, being an agent was a mistake in my opinion, they have to be the weakest class around, so i would suggest the leadership trick.

before flooding this forum with posts that could easily be found out for oneself, go ahead and find out for yourself.

beyond that, which three rogues? i'm guessing the creations because you mentioned earlier about not having a registered version. in the unregistered version, there is only about 1/6th (if not less) of the map that you can cover, is it that hard to go through every area and kill everything?

i don't remember the specifics, but one is in the area west of drypeak, one is to the south, and another is somewhere around.

as far as the drayk TENDON goes, you can't find that until you register.

i hope you all realize that this post had nothing to do as to where to put the graphics. beyond that i'm running into major problems when trying to examine the graphics, i can't seem to get a screen shot, so here is what is happening. i put a floor, it's not the right one. i'm like huh? so i put another, the first one changes and the second one is something completely different, so i do it again, and again, and again, and eventually i find that half my floors are having this problem. any ideas?

note: i hate bugs.

don't have one. this has nothing to do with the louvre, this is just because i have like 70 floors, and don't want to see which ones work and which ones dont, however, i decided to test them anyways, because i'm bored, and i was wondering, does anyone know the resource numbers that are available, as compared to the ones used by BOA?

i don't mean to be an antagonist, but doesn't that violate the CoC at least 20 times? or do those not apply here in the general forum?

3D Graphics in Blades... in Blades of Exile
Warrior

i don't know if you realize this, however in order make the wall graphics efficient, you would also have to make the floor "3D" and the characters, and you could just play avernum.
a 3D tileset within a 2D environment will just not work correctly. you could make it look alright, but never as proffesional as the crappy graphics of the game originally were. vice versa it could work, but only in cartoon movies.

besides that, in avernum you have a slanted square. in exile you have a perfect square, which means that you have to work inside of it. all the graphics would have to take up more then 1 square to actually look 3D. it is an interesting concept, but i doubt, a probable one.

this is NOT for a scenario. if i put that in the title however, less people woud read it. :)

i finished creating more floors then avernum ever had, and about as many if not more walls, however, i am lazy, and don't want to implement them into a scenario and see if they work correctly. if anyone would test them for me, and tell me which ones work, so i can send them to the louvre, and which ones dont, so i can fix them, pleas let me know. it would very much be appereciated.
(i know that's not the right spelling of appreciated)
(in fact, i'm not even sure if that one is)

Which ones would you like? The selection templates or the patterns? I can't send both, due to the fact that I am still sadly using hotmail.

Mainly because I love doing things the hard way. But beyond that, I didn't think about it. I just did it the easiest way I could think of, which was saved selections, and then adjusting the color variations.

Edit: beyond that, it makes it easier to edit every part of the object exclusively. this is extremely usefull for creatures and such.

Update:
a large library of textures has been converted by me into patterns, this is also available

this message is for photoshop users, as the name says. it is also for photoshop element users.

do you want to make avernum graphics, but don't know how?
do you hate going and individually defining each part of the walls/terrain/creatures?

well i have a solution.
recently i decided to make some custom graphics. as i started i realized how tedious a process it really was. well, if you know anything about photoshop you know that you can save selections. i have saved selections for making walls. this includes the light effects, and the walls themselves. so all you have to do is find a texture, drop and darken the parts that need to be darkened and do the same for the parts that need to be lightened. soon i plan on having a few for basic creatures (sliths, nephilim, humans, and vahnatai) and a few for items and various types of terrain. if anyone would like these presets, just drop a post with your email. i didn't know where to submit such a thing, so i posted it here. enjoy.

note: i also have one for more advanced walls such as windows/doors/etc. these are a little harder to work, but much easier then doing them by hand.
