Map Requests

I had a reward on my Twitch channel for those who gathered enough points from watching me to be able to request a map for me to make. Today, however, I am scrapping that idea because I want to assist in creating unique scenarios for people's mods (mostly so I can play them!) and also create something brand new to expand what is possible with Final Fantasy Tactics Modding.

RULES:
  • I have the right to not choose your request. My time is limited and motivation even less so at times.
  • I might not finish your request. If I'm not enjoying the process it makes it hard to work on, let alone finish. I'll provide what I finished to you if I choose to quit working on it.
  • The requested map must be able to be completed on stream. That time is basically the only time I have to work on these. Sorry if you wanted it to stay a secret!
  • Reference is required. You can message me on Discord or post it here, doesn't matter to me!
  • Don't expect it to be done by a certain date. I take a break from creating maps when I find something more interesting to do, so I might stop for a bit here and there or even switch to another request! Please do not pester or bother me to finish it faster or get an ETA. Basically don't make me regret doing this.
  • While I accept constructive criticism and feedback, this isn't client work and if it's not exactly what you wanted I reserve the right to be done with something I feel I completed. GDX is free to use and I will provide you all the files for the map, so if you want something a bit different than what I come up with, you are free to do it yourself!
  • I'll do my best to have the map work flawlessly in game during its creation, but will not hand hold you in getting it working on your mod. Join the discord and ask question if you need help!
  • These rules can be updated and changed at anytime without notice!  :P

So there you have it! Request away!

If anyone wants an example of what kind of info that Kori is looking for, and of his remarkable talent as a map maker, here is a map (and its fun gimmick) that was made for me and my upcoming mod, FFT: Reach The Future!

The Concept
I approached Kori with this concept: A 9 sliced arena surrounded by water, where the platforms can switch between being up (starting position), and falling down into the water (dropping in the units below). I wanted it to be shrine-like, very clean and having kind of a mystical feeling, appropriate for the battle I had planned happening there. I knew that the main mechanic of the map I could handle on the eventing side (dropping units into water dynamically during a fight), so I just needed a map that would allow me to do it!

The Reference

I used to play Genshin Impact, and the idea for the arena that I wanted to create was 100% based on the Oceanid boss fight from the game. I showed this to Kori, and of course being the excellent game designer he is, he decided to iterate on the design a bit and refine it to work better with FFT. The platforms would be lower in the corners, raising in height towards the center, and there would be steps on some of the sides leading up.
FFT's Leviathan
This map is intended to be a shrine to Leviathan, essentially the summon from Tactics, so I wanted there to be some kind of water serpent iconography to really send that home. I think what we landed on was adding in the image of Leviathan from Revenant Wings? It worked, and looked great!

The End Result
You can see Kori's stream-work process in the videos on his youtube channel here!

It turned out looking great, and the in game events and battle for it turned out just as I imagined them! I will update this post with evidence of that once I release my mod to the public, for now, just trust me ;)

Thank you Kori for making this map for me, it's always a pleasure working with you :)
