I've been a busy person. :P I'm doing the best I can with what free time I have. And no, not all of my free time goes to cw2, sorry I have a life outside of creeper world.

Don't we all, and don't we know it. You know, if you're going to make a series, next time, even though the first 2 maps were nice (I am still struggling to beat the second part actually), maybe they should all be made before releasing any of them so time is less of a factor to consider.

Or keep doing them how you are doing them. If you would have waited until the whole series was done, there is a good chance we would have never been able to play them.

exactly... I'm kind of running into a wall on the 3rd map, but maps 4 and 5 should be fun. (though mind-bogglingly complicated) If Part 4 has field-related-lagg-issues, I just give up.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. The smart left a long time ago.

Give up ,and you might look as bad to a lot of people as the Firefly TV show series. (maybe not to me, but you may to plenty of others).It cancled before finishing its first season.

I won't give up, don't worry... though I may have gotten addicted to a game called League of Legends that seems to have killed what little free time I tend to have now adays. :P

Don't blame those who made the series, blame the network that cancelled them.

They completed the series in a movie and released unexplored backstory in graphic novels - the makers of the series didn't abandon it.

I'm back from the dead!~~~~~~~~
And with that comes more work on this dead series. So far I have given up on ATF3 and moved straight to ATF4 because reasons.
Part 4 is going to feature a boss battle with the dragon from the first map, and I'm working with two basic ideas for it. Both of these are very rough and would be tweaked hugely, of course.
Idea 1:
(click to show/hide)

Idea 2:
(click to show/hide)

Both of these can be tweaked a lot, as I said. Also, a note on this fight: After the dragon goes leaves the map, it will likely stay off for 5-10 seconds, or maybe more, during which time you will have a visual cue of which portal it is coming out of next. This will probably be bubbling creeper, or even something as simple as an arrow. Regardless, I'm going to try to keep as much randomness out of this fight as possible, as this has a tendency of ruining every single boss made in this game. I solemnly swear the dragon will be predictable and you will be able to deal with him without studying the map in advance.

No I super died again. But I did promise that I would post some beta versions of parts 3 and 4 of this series. They'll just be less refined.
One of the big issues with continuing this series is that part 3 will NOT live up to the expectations of the first 2 maps no matter what I do.
