Hi, I'm doing a level of Greek-style, inspired by a kind of Olympics, but not to put stickers to the Parthenon.
All the Parthenon is made with basic polistereno since the rest were too brown ...
I need help to decorate the Parthenon:)
See ya! : D
If you need pictures just ask

hi mikeeh.

That is very interesting and im glad that you not going to use only stickers and premade models. If you want to make authentic level you should first find some pictures on parthenon and start make some shapes. First columns then other parts andd then put them together. I use that technic on my level " Little big ark" when i made the animals. Some are from my head and some are from pictures. Look closely how parthenon has been made of and start creating. That takes time, but after all " rome wasnt build in a day"

I agree with fry9182, using pictures as reference is helpful.

I did that with some parts of my levels involving architecture and complex sceneries. Of course, you'll have to adapt things because of LBP creator properties, but having a base like this really helps to work faster and better.

Looking forward to your greek level!

You just work through the issues. After a little bit you start to know the kinds of ways that the editor will mess with your level, so you can anticipate it and be more prepared (although you'll still get messed up, it's inevitable) but yeah, the level editor is functional, just annoying. You can still work with it though... as long as you have a nice quiet place you can go where other people won't hear you swearing. >_>

Make level backups every 30 minutes.
Corner edit everything.
Don't use rewind - just save often and reload as necessary.
