View Full Version : TQ: The Shard Way

11-17-2012, 10:13 AM
(Note: The TQ stands for Track Quest, a play on Trek Quest, the name of a project I had in LBP2 which... I have yet to finish. A half-way complete version of those LBP2 levels are uploaded, but I didn't plan on making a thread about it until it was finished. You might take a look at that too if you like, your choice)


You have come to the jungles to collect the Jungle Gem, however, recent activity has caused it to fragment into 15 seperate identical looking parts. You have 95 seconds to collect all 15 shards, and you will be placed on the scoreboard depending on how fast you do it.
This level is my first in LBPK, so more than anything it was to exercise the editor and get used to it.

(The red lines are the result of Pathfinder tweakers to help with the after-victory AI, which has some crashing-into-stuff problems. These lines are not visible during gameplay, and I've recently discovered how to take pictures without these lines.)

Though I've noticed one of the most glaring issues with this level is one to do with the way the game handles lights. I've set it in night time and its pretty dark, and I'm relying on light objects to light it up and grant vision. Problem is, you can clearly see lights 'popping in' and 'popping out' because they aren't on when you aren't looking at the light itself, and it's distracting/ugly/impractical/probably unhealthy.

Queued it up, it looks cool even though it's not finished. And can you also choose to publish your information to the web? Makes it easier to que.

I'd queue it now (it looks great!) but like fireblitz said, your settings make it so we cannot queue it :( I made a post today explaining how to get your privacy settings correct: http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?75657-How-to-Get-More-Plays-Using-Karting-LBP-me1

Done and done. Wish I had known that before, thanks for telling me. Now you can queue it up via the site, I guess.

Also, I consider this level finished. I'm just willing to make changes to it if there are any glaring problems. The brackets about a level being half finished are not about this one.

EDIT: Good to see people queuing it up. I hope none of you are disappointed.
