    Where are the maps from, who made them, why do they exist and why are they not part of the game? :D

    They're really old (think they're from back before they decided on how the game should look - their date says 2014), they were made by a artist called Jurgen Miersch - I don't think he made anything else for the game.
    Why they didn't include them in the final game is still a mystery to me, because they look pretty good (as someone who's studying 3D it's just even cooler) :D

    I still wish we would get these in the game: https://forum.warlordsofaternum.com...that-this-game-is-being-worked-on-again-d.39/
    But it seems like the devs have their own plans for the future (which sounds good too) :p

    Thanks for the link! I didn't know that so much cool stuff was planned for the game! I started playing when Innogames took over the game because from others of their games I know how much effort they put into them, especially into listening to their community and I really love this aspect of their work. I'm very excited to get to experience the future of this game :rolleyes:

    This level of detail would completely break the game performance and would also exclude a lot of devices from running the game. These are high-res concepts from a long time ago. Maps are now generated with an editor using all available in-game assets. The game designers basically create them and can test them in real time as they do so.

    Well I guess that explains it (they do look cool though) :D
    Just curious, what programs did you use for creating the game? (Sorry if it's secret, I'm studying 3D atm so I find stuff like that really fun) :p

    I have no idea what Wooga used to create their 3D assets. We usually use 3ds Max and Maya.

    Ok thanks ^^
    I'm currently learning 3ds Max so it's kind of cool to see what people are doing with it and what other programs they're using :p
