Less than a year ago, you were in the clutches of the Skaarj, trapped aboard their Prison Starship. You managed to sneak out of your cell during a power outage and you were able to find a Skaarj Fighter Jet. Having previous experience in a Fighter Jet, you decided to take your chances and break out of the prison. However, there was only enough fuel to get to a safe distance.........and maybe out-manuver the Prison Ship's defenses. Inevitably, you eventually ran out of fuel, this was not going to be a nice landing. While the landing was not the most pleasant experience, you woke up in a bed....and not a bed in the dreaded Prison Ship, You woke up to realize you were safe in a Nali's home. The Nali healed you and kept you there for what seemed like weeks. You started to grow attached to the Nali, and lived among them in their daily lives. When the Nali decided you were healed well enough to be on your way, Something inside you decided otherwise......You did not want to leave, but instead live with the Nali for as long as possible. The Nali there agreed to this, and in turn, raised you as one of their own. They taught you their traditions and customs, they taught you how to live as if you were a Nali. Tomorrow is the Dawn of The 6th Sun. In Human's terms, it is the "New Year" for the Nali. Past Sins and Crimes are to be forgiven, but never forgotten. The Nali celebrate the many blessings that their gods have given them. You must help the town, along with the Nali residing there, to prepare for this great event.


Screenshots might come soon, depends on how long setting up the buildings and such will take.

I have to ask: what's up with your editor? Toolbar seems like you replaced the Ued2 button images with Ued1 counterparts, but what about the 2D viewport? Just threw me off with that one a bit :o

Also, that village shot looks terrific. One thing I might suggest is making the sun texture special lit so you can use a light to tone down its brightness or something. At the moment it looks like a searchlight, whereas nothing on the ground reflects that there is too bright a sun there to begin with. Atmospherically, that's about it. Every thing else is just so tauntingly adventurous (in the sense of early-in-the-morning shenanigans the player would be getting in to). From what I've seen from some of your other works, I'm hoping this will be as pleasing as it looks.

I decided to get creative with the editor and took about 30 minutes to change all the icons in the editorres folder to icons that resemble ued1, When I opened the editor in the 97 beta I actually found myself wanting the same grid settings for ued2.1, so I set them to be as close as I could get, hehe :)

I changed the lighting quite a bit, the idea there was to wake up next to a river after "a hard days work" helping the nali. The idea I was going for was that you actually interact with the nali quite a bit, but I would spend too much time thinking about what you could do to help, so instead I just pushed the timeline back to the morning before the big event rather than the night before. Hence this happened, the idea I had with the lighting was to give a real early morning effect

Still working at it here, wrapping up the first level as of now. It's a bit short but it has a very very large part in the mappack

Am I the only one who thinks it looks better without trees? o.o

Anyway, nice environment MU, although I did prefer the skybox in the first pic too :P (I'll stop pissing on your bonfire now)

Looks good (both w/wo trees). Though its also the lighting that makes the difference in both shots. If i had to choose id choose the first one ( oldskool unreal vibe).

They were all moody, but this one probably nails the atmosphere. While the first one was really unique, I don't think it conveys the atmosphere you described.

Nice work!
