RE: [IFC] ETERNIUM - Chapter One

I'm just saying that because from what I've seen you're not doing a whole lot new and unique with the assets. All of the screenshots I've seen so far, while they are still high quality, have just been basic rooms in Amnesia. They're nothing that I haven't seen done just as well in other custom stories, and I think you have the talent to be able to make some really unique and fresh areas with the default assets, which I'd just like to see more of.
For example:
Spoiler below!

From "In Ruins"

While this only uses default assets, I've never seen someone use them just like this in any other mod. The very claustrophobic feel paired with the abundance of dust and cobwebs and the dull lighting give a very bleak effect that I haven't seen done before with those assets. Yes, there are some mapping errors such as the clipping fog and such, but the unique atmosphere makes up for it.
Spoiler below!

From "Chronicles"

Again, this only uses the default assets, but I couldn't name another map that looked anything like it. The mountains actually look believable and the way the sun is just barely showing through the two peaks looks amazing, and yet all it took was careful choice of a skybox and setting up the mountains right. Plus this is one of the few examples of a outside environment during the day that actually looks good.
These are what I'd consider really good screenshots. Sure they both have their short comings but their uniqueness makes up for it, which is what I feel a lot of your screenshots tend to lack. Of course, like I said before, not every room has to be some crazy new use of the assets, but I would try to at least get a few new ideas into each map. And those are the sorts of things I would be showcasing, not just your average room that you made in a few minutes. Just something to think about.

hubris is kill.

Also your cog room bears an uncanny resemblance to the last cog area of Justine.

I rate it 3 memes.

I'd like to try for a voice acting role. Might be able to fill one!

Without courtesy to even say why they vote it 1 star. xD

Oh dear god. You're life is ruined now because some douche rate it you're mod 1. Get over it.
