I am creating a level creation guide to show people what kind of level styles are best, how to do certain things, and how to satisfy the community with your levels.

If you make very nice levels and want to spread some info with us, please do. It would be very appreciated.

Maybe, if I knew how, I could, but seeing as I just spent 300g on a script to give owner tags to rocks...

You'd probably get better results(mabye) in the Graal Level Editing section.

No, more people view here..its better here. I was recently checking the graal2001 site, and in Library there are a few tutorials. I'm thinking of writing my own.

Your own style is your best style.

before that you have to be satisfied with your own work ;)

learning how to make levels isnt something impossible, all you have to do is make it look good, not plain and without errors.

Might as well give a good advice:

If the tiles you're using seem to not fit (graphical mistakes like the cliff tiles) cover them with your own npc images like this one where I made bigger bushes and longer benches.

btw, graphics copyrighted to Faheria, use at your own risks of being shutdown or failed by the PW Administration :D

1) Open Editor
2) Click "Predefined NPCs" on the right hand side
3) Go to the drop box titled "Editor NPCs" and click
4) Select "LevelDetail"
5) You have just created a great level.

symmetrical levels = bad

there are few exceptions.
