    Default The Assault on Ceras-09

    I actually started this last month as a potential replacement for my Awaterra-06 entry during the comp but as the Awaterra map was simpler and I wasn't trying too many new things on it I shelved this one. I like the underwater look enough that I came back to this one, no real reason or back story for it, it's one big chaotic episode, the reds are attacking and the whites are defending (wow, that sounded a bit racist). Really I was just seeing what more I can do with an underwater map, may try another less chaotic more scenic one soon, maybe an underwater ruin with plenty of green and some wildlife.

    People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...

    That's an undersea battle to make James Bond jealous! That's very cool.

    Props from me! Great work, Lonewdr! I always find it difficult to try and show building height with top down mapping but you've cracked it here!

    Very cool. I think I actually like this better than your other map.

    Thanks for the kind words y'all. I really want to continue with this style, maybe this could be my thing. Hopefully more maps like this to come soon.
