    For those unaware, brief history of arena_recluse: The first 72 Hour Contest happened, I created the majority of what would become Recluse. About a year later, I actually went back to it and finished it, got it tested some, played around with things, and people seemed to be okay with it. Stopped again, and repeated the cycle a couple times.

    Here it is: Alpha 10, and basically finished. It looks pretty crappy though, and the out-of-map detailing is not even started. All that's left is to do that detailing. I've tried a couple times to no avail - I just cannot seem to get it done properly. The detailing is what has caused the map to take so long.

    As such, I'm looking for somebody to detail it. My plan all along was for these buildings to be built on the side of a mountain, away from the rest of any other population of people, thus the title: Recluse. As such, I wanted the mountain rising above the map on one side, and the downward slope of the mountain on the other side. However, there has to be some method for people to get to this site. Back in June of 2011 TomHoen helped me picture it with the following: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/103924993/Recluse4.jpg

    Specifically, these are the ones I was envisioning: http://puu.sh/9NkmY/a08347244b.jpg http://puu.sh/9NkoR/883a5e01a9.jpg That is, a mountain rising on one side, cable cars bringing passengers from the base of the mountain. This is what I would love for somebody to create. However, if whoever works on Recluse for me has a good idea, I'm open to listening.

    So I'm looking for somebody talented with displacements (and detailing in general) to finish the only map I have ever actually been proud of making. It's been so long, I want it done, but I just do not have the talent to do so. Because of this, I would rather have it be invite, not open to anyone. Feel free to reply to this thread or message me on Steam.

    Depending on how radical a change to the existing map (the textures and detailing already there is rather bland, but I'm okay with it), "ownership" would be between 70-30 (me-you) and 40-60 (me-you).
