I had already thought of making it more uneven, but the floor in Bill the Cat looked flat, so I left it like that. But now that I know that we have the same idea of how it should look, I will make it look better. ;)

I feel your pain on that one.

The see-through underwater stuff is just what the level needed... at least in the only place it's supported.

When this awesome game happens, I want someone to record it and post it on Youtube. No Joke. I want to see this!

Wolfie is in the western Pacific. Bad time zone for games.

Wolfie, you have your own section in my level spotlight now. ;)

It was a painful lot of work to prepare it.

Speaking of 16 players, I noticed that in DLE-XP's D2X-XL level "Diagnostics" is says max # 8 players. Is it like that by omission, or you cannot add 16 players to map for XL out of the box with DLE?

You might have to convert a level to D2X-XL format before it'll say that. It definitely supports that player count (I've used it before :D).

... in DLE-XP's D2X-XL level "Diagnostics"...

Didn't express myself properly. I start from scartch at D2X-XL format. So if you 've done it before, then it's yet another interface omission. Thanx!

I know all your levels, but I will only post the really good ones on my website. I am not going for completeness, but for excellence. People who come looking for levels at my site shall know that they will not have to dig through mediocrity (or worse) to find a few jewels. That is even true for my own levels (some of which have been banned to an obscure corner of my Descent site).

Quick question.

What is the difference between the ratings of excellent, superb and outstanding? ;)

All of which well deserved.

From my understanding, it goes in this order: Excellent > Superb > Outstanding.

[I really don't know why you need to discuss this on two forums. So since I can only delete duplicates here, I did so. Find the discussion here on PD.net - karx]
