Update time again. In the previous post, I was working on level 1 of area 3. That is now complete. I have just finished building level 2 of area 3. Right now its just kind of an empty bare bones level. I am in the process of adding in the details to the level. Such as floors, wall panels, pillers and lights stuff like that to keep the level from looking to plain and boring. I do that first before adding the enemies into the level since it takes sometime to do.

I did manage to forget I made graphics for adding detail to area 3 and actully made level 1 area 3 with out the wall panels. The funny thing is I added the lights and pillers, but forgot about wall panels. Of course I did not realize this until I started adding detail to level 2 area 3. The wall panels are done for level 2 area 3. So, right now I'm adding those to level 1 area 3. Once done its back to adding the rest of the stuff to level 2 area 3.

That was a lot of level this and area that. Hopefully it was not to confusing. That is where I'm at right now.

It's that time again for another update and a much needed one at that. In the previous update I was designing the levels for area 3. I did run into some level design creative blocks here and there, but it all turned out good. So the good news is, the levels for area 3 are done design wise anyways.

What am I doing now? I have been building the levels in the map editor. Right now I have been working on level 1 of area 3. Of course once thats done its on to level 2 of area 3. On the side I have been working on the graphics for area 4. This will help a lot, so when I get around to designing area 4 the graphics will either be finished or close to being finished. That will shorten the time between getting the graphics done and using them to build the levels. That is where I am right now.

The graphics for area 3 are done. When I started work on level design, I found myself with I guess you can call level design creative block. I was just not sure how to go about the level design for that part of the game. So, I just took some time away and looked at level designs from other games to get some creative inspiration. Which helped out a lot.

Now I have a pretty good idea on how to go about the level designs for area 3. The next step is to start drawing out the levels. That is where I am at right now.
