Hello.
Welcome to the thread where I show off random pieces and parts of levels that I've built in Constructor. Once in a while I'll post a picture of an upcoming level (which really means a .map file that I work on for a total of ten minutes), so keep in touch if you're interested. Head over to my level topic if you'd like to.

Call me Chris!

Honestly, Rozi. I wouldn't care less if you rip off something from me. As long as it is not a direct ripoff, its fine. Anyway, looking forward to Quartet of thats what you're planning on making it straight away.

Nobody needs your permission 'cause they know you'll screw it all up with your spam :P

I find singleplayer more fun to play to be honest. There is a wider variety of levels, and the pathways are predictable yet fun to speedrun. Multiplayer is alright as well, but I find singleplayer more appealing and enjoyable.

Picture of my upcoming level: Gravity Practice. Basically the concept is to somehow run into the mid-air gravity modifier after you jump off a ledge and control your spin so you land on the next platform. The farther you go into the level, the harder the challenges will get! There's only 3 challenges to pass through, but if this level gets some fair reviews I may make another one with some more interesting challenges.
I'll be adding detail to the level tomorrow.

Left Gravity Practice off for later since the MBU textures were being a pain.

Meanwhile I went and cleaned up this thing. I started it back in January and I abandoned it because I didn't know as much about fixing converting errors as I do now (I still know very little). Finally decided to finish this off so I could have it done and over with. I have all the in-game stuff to do and then I'll release it on my level topic.
Threefolder claims to have "fixed" this back in February (and he's right :angry:) though I don't think I paid attention to see if he sent me a fixed .map file in return. Not like it mattered anyway. :silly:

Welcome back. Still alive.
It was time that I actually built something using something other than MBG textures (see: my mini mod). So I started this.



This level is planned to be called "The Land Below". The general idea is that you take your marble down through this "portal" (the giant hole in the middle) and you end up in this different "world" (Yeah, I know. Creativity.) which will probably be just a series of different open world challenges, like the style of a multiplayer map.
I just wanted to try something out like this. I'm expecting to get stuck somewhere in development to the point where I'll rush through everything making stupid challenges and all. You never know. It might be amazing.

Good enough answer?

I don't even know what CSG subtract is, so I guess that's a plus.

Put brush 1 into brush 2, and with brush 1 selected, use CSG Subtract to print brush 1's shape into brush 2.
Very useful, but it can get you both geometric and conversion problems, plus it offsets the brushs' pivot points from their center, which can get annoying at times.

You forget a thousand things everyday. Make sure Marble Blast isn't one of 'em.

I've moved my attention away from yet another level and started a new one.
This one's similar to Upward Momentum, and I think I've found out that I have a thing for super fast levels. As you progress through this level, the floors, as you might call them, get more challenging, and along with that you'll have to maintain your speed so you can pass through certain parts. It may be a tough challenge, but hopefully it'll still be fun. Let's see what this turns in to.

There's not much to show, but I might as well share a picture. This is what the beginner floor will look like, without all the decoration and scenery.

Maybe Jessica's Blue Lava Haste can be helpful for your level's development.
I always loved fast levels, but if I can give you litlle advice : be sure to add a Par Time to keep the adrenaline at its maximum. Just a lil' tip.

Hi.

It's about time I try something in PQ. Here's the result of around 10-15 minutes of work.

Lol. (That probably would have taken me 20 minutes minimum)

With those sharp edges in the sand bits near the start pad, is it the case that you make lots of blocks and just move around the vertices? Otherwise I wouldn't know how to get the effect carrying all the way down through the wall texture.

It's just moving around the vertices. The easiest way to do this is to create normal square blocks (whether they're textured correctly or not doesn't matter) of any reasonable size, and then use the bird's eye view perspective to select the vertices. (Click and drag to select them so you can select both the top and bottom vertices as well as two that are right next to each other.) After that, just move them into place and move on to the next one.

Ah I see, that's a very smart way of doing it. I never even realised either that those wall textures can work like that - I thought you'd need a random pattern repeating for the dark brown lines to line up

Nice start for a PQ level! (Compared to mine :c)

But you should really use the combo textures instead of the just one tile repeating one.

lee is awesome

I ended up releasing the level in the picture above. I have a few plans for whatever my next level will be, and the favored one at the moment is based around the use of the Fireball. Let's see what happens.

Spoilrers: nothing.

Here's a massive(ish) level I'm working on that I started a couple weeks ago. There's no scenery yet and there's some texturing to be done. I'll get to that later.

Here's that same level but considerably more developed. There are some neat pictures of what I currently have in-game on my level topic.
