My hedge Maze tapped out at 7,499 pieces

WOW! That has got to be the BEST maze ever in the history of TSTO! Excellent

    Fun video/project! I'd like to see a zoomed out picture of the thing in it's entirety!

    Wow, that maze had to take a lot of time! It looks great. And I'd like to see you post the whole thing so we can see it all together. (As usual, Origin does not find you in the friends screen or I'd just add you.) Thanks for sharing and amazing work! 8)

    WOW! That is insane! Incredible job. I gotta compliment the video, too. That was fun and enjoyable to watch. The beginning made me smile.

    Question. When you said you counted to make sure it was 7499 and not 7500, did you count from the previous limit?? A lot of work! Kudos!

    Hated video editing at first. Starting to have fun now I'm learning how stuff works!

    Thought I lost the original map I put together for the video. Started turning green for a second. Found it on a USB drive which I don't ever remember using. So I edited the full map from the video and removed the arrows. No fun leaving them in :)

    The original image was slightly too large for the web at 21,484x11,459 pixels. So I resized to a slightly more manageable 1920x1024. Some things didn't line up absolutely perfectly in the huge image, but are barely noticeable in the video and non-existent in the small image:


    As for the build limit, I almost blew my brains out with that one too. I did count from the last warning message, however I ran in to confusion when placing the last piece. When the warning said 'You currently have 7,350 buildings' I wasn't sure if that included the one I placed as the message popped up. Was it 'you have reached the limit' or 'you have exceeded the limit by 1'.

    Basically, it's impossible to tell without counting and the maze was... not going to happen. No way am I counting that jumbled mess. So I jumped on another account. Doesn't really warrant a video so I made another image...


    The hedge rows are 50x50, each. 50*50=2,500. There are 3 blocks of hedges. 3*2,500=7,500.

    But the bottom right of the bottom hedge row is missing 2 hedge pieces. 7,500-2=7,498. The only other object in the world is the Simpson house, so 7,498+1=7,499.

    AI characters don't count towards the limit, so 7,499 is the build limit and I really need a drink. When you go to place the 7,500th piece there's a warning that you've reached the build limit. I'd assume that 7,500 is supposed to be the limit but the message comes up before the piece is placed so you can't ever drop it. I'm not going to complain though, 1 piece wouldn't make a difference to my bloody maze :wink:

    The game definitely slows down when an obscene number of objects are onscreen at the same time. It does on all my devices anyway, so the build limit makes sense after a fashion. Everything seems stable, just really hard to navigate. If anyone feels the need to count in person, send an invite to: [email protected]

    Nice! What did you use to edit the video? :-\
  • edited August 2014
    Adobe Premiere CS2 or CS6, depending on where I was at the time. No additional plug-ins or scripts, just a lot of Photoshop.
