Simulating the reverb feature was the first reason for me to split level. The second was the different objects for two parts me level. So I have 3 levels instead of 1 now

It's very boring to have to split a (supposely) huge level into two small ones
The bolded part most of the time.
But reaching limits in general is making me split my levels. I'm not always sure which limit I've hit, but if a level is pretty full and is running into trouble, I split if the problems persist.

A nice thing about splitting is that new stuff can be added so each part can be a bit different from the other.

Opinions needed.

I'm using several secrets in my current MoA project.
The first secrets are shells because I figured they would fit the coastal setting.
The second batch of secrets are ancient Celtic coins.
All in gold, silver, bronze and copper variations. Classic style so to speak.
The Atlantis batch would most likely be seahorses and the Avalon batch would be... no idea yet. Something Pagan I guess.

But...

I've been thinking about replacing them, or at least the shells, with Celtic symbols of some sort. Think triquetra, five fold symbol, celtic cross, etc.
And I've been looking for fish/water related symbols.
But the only Celtic things I could find were the salmon and the seahorse.
Another thing I found was the conch shell, but that's a Buddhist symbol.

Each secret will have its entry on the diary, explaining what the symbol is about. Something I like in TRA and the reboot games.
If I want to stick to the sea related symbols, would it be really odd to have symbols from other religions among them?

That said, does anyone know of any other sea related symbols from paganism, vikings, norse, whatever nordic religion?

A dragon comes to mind. There's many nordic dragon symbols I think.

+1.
Same as Titia.
Often I reach max TGA space before I even started building.
That said, I once had a corrupted PRJ from too many tail infos. This problem persisted in countless of PRJ's and weeks of process for whatever reason, and I lost all that work when it suddenly started crashing. I recommend to always use the 'remove unused tail infos' button at the end of a building session to avoid any errors. I'm still very salty about losing all that progress, it's one of the most difficult levels I've worked on.

Another thing NGLE doesn't warn me about is maximum objects per room.
So I can place countless of statics and lightbulbs in a room with no consequence, even put the level through the converter without issue. It only affects my PRJ once I close NGLE and open it again. I get countless of evil object error as a result destroying the PRJ.

In NGLE there is "tex infos: x/1024" notice. I never approached this limit so not sure if there is warning message or not.

Maximum objects per room - This is strange, because I always got message about too many objects in room when approached limit. What version of TRNG are you using? Maybe it's bug that happens only in certain version?

How do I play the Coyote Creek 1 on win7? In full screen mode it looks like if it played with 256 colors while in windowed mode it looks good but crashes on saving. Any suggestions to have a proper colors and the saving ability at the same time? Compatibility mode does not help.

^I don't remember if that one needs the "save" folder for saves, but I don't think so
Also, make sure that on setup everything it's setting up on the right way

^ Forum effect kicked in again
All was the matter of the resolution, 1600x1024 32bit + widescreen solved the problem

Probably not the right place to ask this, but I post more here.

Does anyone use the subscription feature of the forum? I am thinking of using it to avoid having to log in every 10 minutes and just check email instead.
