OK guys, here's a big confession (please don't judge): I've never played a Final Fantasy game in my life. I know FFVII is considered the biggest accomplishment of mankind since the Moon landing by many gamers but I used to be a Nintendo fanboy and never owned a PSX, so I never played it (or any of the other games in the series). All I know is that these are Japanese RPGS with characters that have funky haircuts and (sometimes) really big swords. I watched the Final Fantasy ("Spirits Within") movie but that didn't resemble anything that I've seen of the FF games. Then again every FF game looks like it has few in common with the previous one and they just keep getting weirder. Please enlighten me!

There's a load of different worlds in the FF universe and most of the time they don't carry over to other games.. There have been a few that are linked such as Vagrant Story, FF Tactics and FF12, which all take place in the same world. So for most people, certain worlds are a lot more gripping than others. Personally, I love Ivalice, the world in the games I just mentioned. FF12 is one of my favourite final fantasy games, the combat system is really cool and was (and still is I guess!) quite innovative in that you can set of 'gambits' which are basically AI commands that can be done in a certain order and based on certain conditions (ie, if health < 50%, use heal on target). I'd recommend that one if you were to try and get into it, but you can't judge the entire series on one game because they're all so different!

      Hello everybody!
      I'm creating a map (based on the Maginot Line) for the Wingman's Contest - provided by Source Engine's Discord.

      I started the map 3 weeks ago and I'm on the detailing phase, slowly progreeding area by area, worried with the time left. I decided to follow this strategy: detail 75% of every area and after that (and gaining some time) I'd put some final touches + polishment + optimization.  

      I wonder, should I keep doing it in a hurry or is it better to make it with no rush and patience (losing the deadline)? There's still a lot to do and I'd like to hear your opinions...
