    I thought Black Panther was pretty good. No super strong complaints, but I didn't necessarily love it as much as some people. A lot of the characters felt pretty pointless (the actor from Get Out had a fairly stiff, not very believable/boring role in the story).

      Reveal hidden contents

    At one point he rides a Rhinocerous, which kind of summed up his character for me. Needlessly unbelievable and with motivations that don't really compute in the context of the narrative. We're told that he's very upset that his father died, but we 1) never saw his father 2) his "upset" isn't really shown in any meaningful way, he's like this stoic guy who all the sudden goes from complete loyalty to the protagonist to strong antagonism in virtually no time. All because a villain drops a dead body at his feet? It doesn't work.

    There were a lot of characters who probably should have been cut in order to focus on the ones that were really interesting (the Uncle/Brother character for example got really short shrift despite being the most interesting person in the story. His entire plotline deserved way more depth and screentime. They probably cut it to de-emphasize the "real world" politics aspect of his character, but that was easily the most interesting unexplored area of the story. The film opens with him stockpiling weaponry and then abandons his whole plotline, pretty basic violation of "Chekhov's Gun" with predictably disastrous results for viewers sitting there wondering what the deal is with that for the entire rest of the movie, and they never really give you any more action than that with his character. They just say "he was going to overthrow the government" or something. Too vague.)

    The really intelligent sister character was basically a Mary Sue, I liked her character but where was her backstory, how did she get so smart, where was she educated and what are her goals and ambitions? They don't say a word about it, she's just kinda always amazing and doing amazing things without any humanizing flaws or realistic challenges other than what her brother is experiencing. A little bit of a flat character there.

    T'Challa himself was intro'd with very little background himself, you know virtually nothing about him other than that he loves a woman and can't behave properly around her. Which they then abandon as a plotline as well, never to return to that particular character quirk.

    So many interesting ideas that are basically just abandoned for no reason other than to put more action/fight sequences with rapid cuts that don't really do much to satisfy the viewer. (There was absolutely nothing positively memorable at all about the action scenes, but a lot of goofy stuff does come to mind.)

    Overall, worth seeing but not the best of the Marvel films.

    Did you managed to have a look at it ? Watcha think ? :)

    It's great, really like the live updates to the 3D model and freedom of choice you get. Only two or three things stood out to me:

    The space between "Hide Option Cubes" and "Total" is too small (i.e. non-existent) and the display of dimensions in the summary isn't very sexy but I think that's one of the things that is still WIP. Also the Note underneath might be bit unfortunately worded. Maybe this is better: "Note: You may rotate the 3D furniture by holding down the left mouse button and dragging it around."

    While the site looks very clean and slick (which I like) I feel it has a bit too much dead space going on between the different segments, but I guess that's just how websites are built nowadays to be more mobile and tablet friendly.

    Anyway, great job overall!

    Glad to hear that :P

    www.livanti.be/

    The website is still under construction but you can have access to the 3D configurator by login in with those infos

    Then go there for example http://livanti.be/products/Callisto and play with the configurator :)

    You can change the language at the bottom.

    The mail address got hidden, could you maybe share it again but with a space in between, would love to play around with it for a bit? Would love to play around with it :)


  4. Thanks for the new copypasta! No, but seriously, you got some really solid advice from an industry professional there. You should really give it more thought instead of going into full defense mode about people trying to push you down. Many of us have been in the same shoes as you and learned to not bite more off than we can chew. Now we try to relay that experience to you so you can avoid wasting not only your precious time and effort but also of those who work with you,... but I guess that's something you have to learn on your own?

    Anyway, that's just my view. Of course you're free to ignore it and go about your day. Just remember that it never hurts to listen to feedback and review it. In the end it's all up to you and what you make of it.

    Happy new year to you as well!


  5. As far as I know only two maps were disqualified because of it. Both of them had missing models when I looked at them at the deadline, which was a certain exclusion criteria for me when judging, since they made the maps largely unplayable. So I don't think there is that much of an issue in this case as it may seem when reading this thread.

    Anyway, in hindsight I agree that the wording was a bit too ambiguous and could've been better,... certainly something to be improved upon in future competitions.

    Should we stay away from updating the map on the workshop while the judging process is taking place? Don't wanna cause any extra problems with it and was woundering since it says that updates after November 30 wouldn't be considered.

    Agree, I have minor fixes that players really would like it to be fixed, am I entitled to release this update without violating the rules?

    Please don't update your map until the 10 finalists of this contest are announced, which will be on the 10th of december.


  7. Sorry to let you know, but you didn't manage to upload the map to the workshop in time for the deadline (you went over it by around 12 hours). It's really unfortunate but it would be unfair to the other participants to let this pass with that many hours behind the deadline.

    You got something great going on there and I hope you'll keep working on it to turn it into something really outstanding.


  8. Yeah, that's it. Here is a description of the Mafia (party game) from wikipedia:

    Quote

    Mafia, also known as Werewolf, is a party game created by Dmitry Davidoff in 1986[2] modelling a conflict between an informed minority, the mafia, and an uninformed majority, the innocents. At the start of the game, each player is secretly assigned a role affiliated with one of these teams. The game has two alternating phases: night, during which the mafia may covertly "murder" an innocent, and day, in which surviving players debate the identities of the mafia and vote to eliminate a suspect. Play continues until all of the mafia have been eliminated or until the mafia outnumbers the innocents.

    I'd also love to give it a try!
