Title: Screens
Post by: TheReturnofDMD on May 07, 2006, 08:24:13 PM
Hi

I'm not sure if this is in the right section or not, but just wondering, approximately how many screens are there in each land or region in the game?

Actually I bet there are more than 10,000. So: More than .3 and less than 1,343,751,823,093,511,923,922,833,271,000,000,002.

*pulls up excel chart*

Each land has around 50 screens. That's for the big lands (Green Isles, Dreamworld, and in parts 2 and 3, Astratos, Endless Forest, Daventry and Dreoria). Then there are smaller lands that go anywhere from 5 to 15 or 20 screens.

Wait a minute, did we just get names of lands?

That was like...not sufferish... O.O

But 50 screens...Is it just me or is that a bit of an expansion on the original Green Isles?

if it is the whole land of the green isles, then there probably is a small expansion. but it would include all of the islands, not just the isle of the crown, right?

Green Isles refers to all the isles, but still I would say it's a substantial expansion. ;D

Well we know that you can go into Chessboard Land. And most likely Beast's castle/garden. I'm assuming that they won't be as magnificent though because the evil has taken over all over the place, so they'll be darkish.

I've always wanted to see Chessboard land! It's such a mystery!

I would think that Endless Forest would have an infinite number of screens, unless you count a repeating screen as one screen.  But if the screen repeats with the trees repositioned randomly, then you ought to count each possible permutation as one screen.

I think the most screens I've ever seen in a game was in LSL5, where Atlantic City had something like over ten thousand screens.  And it looked exactly like Atlantic City, too!

Ugh *remembers* It was horrible if you couldn't find Ivana's skate shop in the first 10 screens.

Actually, I think there was just a big storm and beast turned beastly again, and Valenice had a nervous breakdown :P

Each one of the isles in the Land of the Green Isles have familiar locations revisited and expansions where you were unable to go in KQ6. Obviously there are also KQ6 locations that you can't revisit because they have no use in the plot.

I was personally very delighted to get a look at these new locations and they all feel totally right for the respective isles imo. They now belong to my mental map of the Isle of the Crown and the line of where Roberta and Jane's vision ended and CÚsar's starts is a blur... I will never be able to play KQ6 anymore without thinking that I know exactly what is behind the corners of the screen where you can't go, and neither will you! :suffer:

"I will never be able to play KQ6 anymore without thinking that I know exactly what is behind the corners of the screen where you can't go, and neither will you."

He means once the game comes out, we won't look the same way at KQ6. ;)

So THAT'S why it messed up!!!!

I thought it had to do with my formula for the probability of game content judging by the ages of the team members and what we've seen of the game so far.
