There are many reasons why you should download this utility. My specialty really is campaigns and reviews, but with this utility I shall make an exception:
Basically you begin with a series of impressive utilities:
Sea Tower ensconced inside a mountain – the most impressive among others, which could be used for a variety of other ideas for scenarios (Phil, a suggestion would be to create a glacier effect for a future scenario and have the tower blend into the glacier cliff face – ideal for ambush scenarios).
Invisible burning farms - I could’ve used this idea when I was doing my previous scenarios.
Fishing boat sailing on land – very impressive and originally done.
This contains ideas for both those starting out on scenario design as well as the seasoned designers who have “seen it all” and who, I will admit, shall be pleasantly surprised at what this utility contains. Thoroughly recommended.
Basically you are an arbalest in a walk-through guided tour. There are some signs in which you click on for the dialogue to appear in which it explains the tricks, and other areas the dialogue appears without the need to click on anything. Nicely balanced.
In summary I thoroughly recommend this utility to anybody who has a special interest in this area of design as well as those who are looking for ideas.
