Post Notice to everyone interested in mapping:
Compiling a decent design document that contains expectations and criteria has been on my todo list for a while. But it's always come second to actually experimenting and trying to define what works for PFF. Now that we've alreadt come this far, I'll definitely try to finish that document.

In the meantime ... If you're interested in helping out, I'm willing to share what assets I've created, as a source of inspiration or as an actual construction set is for you to decide. The same goes with landscapes. I've drafted some heightmaps that also come with a set of does and don'ts but they still allow for a world of variety.

PM me on the forums or join me on the EU tribes mumble (mumble.shazbot.eu port: 30033 - no password - I'm usually in the PFF Dev idle channel near the top of the tree)

The document in question is located here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IbG ... pSH38/edit

As you see it still has quite a bit of work ahead of it. Feel free to comment on it.

The placement of the tree of wisdom was also lacking in strategic importance. All historical records featuring Greth, including Bible passages have been expunged since the early 12th century.

Dumb question: do we now have to pay to make a map for PFF? Never really looked into UE4's latest licensing plan.

Yes, you will have to pay for at least 1 month($15) to get access to the Unreal 4 Editor. You don't have to pay for further months, but if you want updates you'll have to pay for another month. Things may not always be this way, but at least for the near future, to develop, you'll need to pay Epic for access to the editor.

I've updated the WIP open design doc somewhat:
