These levels are terrible. It could partly be the Era tileset limitations, maybe it is because I can make much more beautiful levels with the pics1.png tileset but these levels are plain, poorly laid out, and clashy. It reminds me of new LATs fumbling around the pics1.png designing their first levels.

And please do not cry because people had negative things to say about your levels. Clearly you were looking for praise. There is always room for improvement (and in your case you have a long way to go).

I'd love to see you try creating levels with Era's tile set. Make anything better and I'll give you a gift irl. Good luck, give it a go.

I think these are probably some of the better and most creative Era levels I've seen.

That been said and over with, they suck. If you compare the levels to other games which use similar indoor perspective (many SNES RPGs come to mind: Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana), you'll see a huge folly and error in your style.

Those rooftop tiles are way out of perspective. I don't know why, but it makes the house look like its leaning south to me. Like it's going to fall over or something.

Keep trying though! You're the best on Era I think.

I never once said I was the best LAT on Era (I know I ain't.)... There's always room for improvement too, but like I said, log on Era and look at there levels. If you could see the house levels on Era, you'd puke.

I'm not bragging, but I'm better then some of the people papaJ hired. I enjoy making levels, but I'm not going to make anymore levels if he's going to just hire random people without having them do an application. Very unfair.

Everyone hired was either a LAT previously on Era, or did an application.
Pretty sure they're better than you; (They were hired right?) based on the work being completed on the Dev server.

All you're doing in this thread is whining because you don't get instant gratification (hired on Era) because you made a few [average/bad] levels.

If u don't want to make any more levels because people say you could do better then that's a personal problem. Like I said, if you don't like criticism, don't post (especially when you asked for comments).

Since when is Era/Graal/Life ever fair?

That seems a bit too harsh to be perfectly honest. Give the guy a break.
