SH2 eyecandy album is now up for you to showcase your maps eyecandy. There is a post in the map room also. Enjoy and lets show off your talent. Kazmiester just happens to by my first album I am testing for picture size.

Edit: I know we have this information in the map room thread but lets also make sure you have it here.

to email your work send it to me: arcola at heavengames dot com

Gallery is .jpg friendly so that is the best way to send them.

150-100 KB seems to give a good wallpaper size to work with, but I really need feedback from Mere or Jay on that. I may end up resizing down a few bytes.

Zipping your pics will work fine for email.

I don't see anything. I do see a spot where it asks me to log in because special privelages are needed to view some material. I log in and it says wrong username and password. I dunno.

I've changed the permissions for that gallery, you should be able to see it now. Let me know if there are still any problems.

The eyecandy picture is too small. I've tryed every way to enlarge it. The thumbnail seems to be the biggest size.

Hey Caesar! What a cool idea for a drawbridge! Does it work like that?

And how did you make the dock? I wanted to do something like that for Monarch's Rest. Is it just buried walls?

Those are good ideas and I think (may be wrong) that the dock is made by using a few wooden towers in a row, yes, maybe...no?

Take care,

Yeah, I think you're right Redmoon. I see them now.

Well I'll be stealing that idea too.

Caesar- Shame about the drawbridge idea. It does look really cool though.

How do I submit. Is 5 photos enough pictures for an album? I will add more over time.

HI REL 749
They are great! The map is called Paradise? And do you want captions for them? I can grab screenies from them that way or you can also zip file them to me. I just added the mailing info in my heading post so you know where to mail them to. Nice work.

@Redmoon
That piccy you have in the bridge thread,the one where the paths meet at the bridge, may I snag that one? Also Stronghold Heaven has a castle gallery for members to submit their pictures of castles. I have been looking at the load screens that you did, (great work) would you be interested in putting up some screenshots of Eileen Donan in that Gallery? link

@Lord Ceasar III that is a great screenie. Is that one yours? I really need your work to make an album for you.

Snag it up Lady Arcola and to be honest, I only have the one pic of Eileen Donan on my system, plenty around my house , but just the one I used for the loadscreen on my system.

You can find a load of them though, do a yahoo or google image search for "Eileen Donan" and get ready to save to disk.

Take care,

I don't need captions. You can put your own captions in if you'd like.

Yeah, the map is called Paradise Island(or just Paradise, didn't think about it when I labeled them, I can reupload the correct named pics.) It's the first map I've ever made. All those screenshots are from one map.

If you play the map with "Enhanced Water" disabled, the water will actually look better. The water will look an aqua blue caribbean color. Too bad you can't really see the coloring when "Enhanced Water" is enabled.

Thanks Lord Caesar III, Redmoon and REL 749.

I will not need new ones REL 749, I can work with the ones I have. We should have a good eyecandy album by the end of the week.

That is really too bad if you can't get that draw bridge to work, that looks especially awesome... I suppose you could use it, just make the scenario to where the gate is not usable.. pile debris or something around it.. or just leave it up.

I wanted to do something like that with a castle on a cliff with a river down in a canyon splitting it in half.. ended up having to keep solid ground and make the river look like it goes into a cave and comes out of the cave on the other end.. it looks okay, but I am a little disapointed overall.

I couldn't even get the bridge tool to span the gap, what are the rules behind that object anyways? Does it have to be directly over the river tile?

underworld1 I am not sure where you are trying to log in at. If your trying to log into the gallery you can't.
Only a few staff have permission to do that. If you trying to view the gallery just go to the main SH2 page and click on the gallery link. Or clicking on my link above will also take you right to the Mappers Gallery. From that you can navigate around the Gallery.

pad11, thanks for sending pictures to post into the Gallery. Wish we had a way of getting everyone to do it.

Does it work the same way as in SH and SHC?
Or is there a new trick?

Ok... I have to ask... How the heck did you get the cows to be black and white? All I get are brown cows.


Next, the different color water. I get dark greyish blue. I saw some beautiful light blue water in the eye candy pictures.


Also, the statues. I didnt see a statue of a man as an option, only the horse ones!! Im jealous!
