This just in! RiotForScience declares the work of previous environment artists a "bag of skittles", claims he'll turn Summoner's Rift into a Monet!

(I tease!)

I totally made it a new paragraph just so it would be clear that I was making an example about how saturation works that was disconnected from the previous thought... I actually deliberated for a while before hitting enter too...

The skittles were real. I was there. I experienced the skittles. /shiver

So if Skittles is the current SR and Monet will be the next SR, what was the original SR? :O

I think that the color schemes for each section of new TT feel "colorful if you think about it." That might be in the same sense as Armor of the Fifth Age Taric is worth 975 RP if you think about it.

I suspect that by colorless people mean "it just feels like a slab of blue-gray with dots of brighter color, with silver-blue and gray-purple at the ends and maybe some dark green-gray for Vilemaw and the shopkeepers." Compare that to old TT, where it's much harder to really say there's a "slab" of anything.

I think that it might be worth trying out changing the color of the brush (possibly getting some extra TT balance changes out with it) and recoloring the mushrooms in the bottom jungle to stand out *slightly* more (maybe one side blue/cyan and the other magenta/purple?). See if the changes make the map look more vibrant without sacrificing superior visibility.

Can we get ANY update on what kind of progress has been made with the SR upgrade? I mean ideally I'd like to know if we are going to see this released any time this year, or if it won't be coming out for another 2-3 years.

Even if you can't tell us anything about projected deadlines, can you we at least hear where you are at in terms of planning/execution? Are you still working to solidify a direction? Do you have goals defined? Have you made any progress or are you still discussing the whats and whens? Has the development/design/asset creation process already started? Can we get SOME sort of status update? I know you want to keep it quiet because you don't want to commit in case the project gets derailed or put on hold, but it would be nice to know what tasks you are currently undertaking for this map upgrade.

Thanks!

The purpose of this thread is to gather feedback based on people's feelings and opinions about the state of SR. There are similar threads for every map and even a thread for maps that we have not made. The existence of this thread should not imply any future direction. It is just a convenient place for people to leave input where they know the members of the Environment Team will see it.

Yeah, I know... I'm just excited by the idea of a SR update (as I'm sure you are too!) and was hoping to squeeze out some info heh. It was worth a shot...
