@The staff member who said something about the autoborder and slow
there is no need for auto border to map fast and with style. just practice.

In case you've missed it; mapping randomly is fast, but mapping according to lore -- and to a setting described in text -- shouldn't be done quickly. I would actually be quite sad if I saw the map rushed. I like it when things are done properly, and in my experience fast rarely equals properly. While practice would speed things up, having mechanical skills with a map editor is not something I would prioritize in my life.

Well I never thought mapping was that painful! I guess I just never really thought about the actual logistics and such.

Great work Rob

I don't know if this was about the speed I'm mapping in the video (although how you'd know how fast it actually is, I don't know :confused: ), or if that's a reference to how long it has been since mapping got an update in the to-do list...

I'm talking about the speed in which he builds, but it was a only a joke anyway! I wasn't being serious in any way. I love map designers for beauty in their creations; not the speed in which they can create.

P.S. I hope the mapper doesn't take it personal, looking back on this while I'm baked it kind of sounds harsh. I loves you <3

I just realized there was two pages. Sorry to ignore your post for a second bud.
Yeah they do help out a lot in speed, though I worked on maps when I was knee high to a grass hopper using JxB's and Sim0nes later on. I was spoiled by Remere after a while with his crafty auto borders though. I'm probably not as fast as I use to be.

Rob, I think you have a talent and that kind of teaser should be constant! Incidentally, teasers videos have much more life than pictures.
