ancient creek for God of Powerful Words - yet another combat
edit 22/4: done!
video you can find at youtube or download the .wmv

edit 25/4: download map 1.02


oh hellos.
I started this map just for the heck of it and wanted to do some ready room art. but then I had to do
marine start. and then hallways. and then hive. and so on.

but I did it without single line of layout and always with just picture of the next room in my head, so that's the first reason it couldn't turn to a ns_ map, the commander view would be totally scrambled and it's mapped tight so there would be sieging problems. secondly I hit already the 8mbit texture limit as it is now. and thirtly
I didn't give a heck of that 700 wpoly thing. wpoly peak in this map is 1000 as I was doing this just for my own fun. that's second nail in the coffing for commander view. shame though, since I would DO have ideas for whole ns_ map.

but anyways it's ready. I'm still finetuning it, but I'm making this topic so I could release the textures I used.
there's some infested version of the textures I usually like to use and then some. reason for releasing this, is
because I'm embedding the original wad into my map since there's some map spesific (secrets!) textures.
feel free to dig them out tho, if you that bad want them :P

here you can download the wad.
and here's some of the textures it contains
edit: almost forgot, would be nice to be mentioned in your maps .txt if you use them. refer me as "HUMONGOUSLY ARTISTIC UFFO" :)

and finally some screens of my map, they're snapped while wip, so the lightning may not be correct.

    and oh, just for the fun of it, I picked up some notes from the crew all around the map as a running joke of sort.

    here's two of them

    The name caught my attention at least.

    Some of the textures look a bit misplaced. Especially the infestation in the screenshot 3rd from the bottom seems to come from nowhere, but I think I'll comment them more after I've played the map.

    yah, I've noticed that too. it's coming from kharaa joining area, but it's from time I still had no infestation textures. I'll try to see to it. Or dit you mean that last one coming under the panel? that one's intentional :P

    LMAO!! I don't know if I would have used the power rangers song, but the map does look awesome. Then again, I'd probably throw some VG music from Duke Nukem3d in mine, but I know that many people wouldn't approve. tounge.gif

    I'll definitely check out the final build on this map in the morning marine.gif

    done.
    there's some odd lightning bug(?) I just can't seem to get rid off, there's some sudden dark areas no matter
    how many lights there are. but I grew tired of wrestling with it, so I'm releasing this.

    one fun thing worth of mentioning I guess. there's this low-gravity part (when you break the pipe as seen
    in video) and when you try to shoot with GL there, all the nades start hovering up. never thought of that :P
    and about the notes, there's total 8 of them, not particularly hidden. except one, but you can get there without noclips.

    and without any more rattle, here it is

    Did a quick run through; AWESOME. I really liked the ready room too! The music was great.

    Still laughing at the notes all over the map though. I'd probably get killed running about trying to read them all. tounge.gif Funny stuff, especially some of the semi-hidden stuff in the marine spawn area. Took a little jumping to get to. biggrin-fix.gif

    did some quick changes. torch door didn't open anymore in next round. I still don't know why the torch
    isn't moving, triggered that door open with simple time delay instead after the last path_corner

    Did a quick run through last night of the last version and wow, it looks hella sweet! The readyroom music sounds fitting to a haunted house from a mario game, but somehow fits the map quite well! The infestated areas look awesome. I can see where you're hitting the texture limits. The lighting, everything, is very wow. Activating the gravitron thingee was all random luck... I couldn't figure out that weldable for the life of me (counter-intuitive when figuring it out yourself. I didn't see the video nor did it register in my brain when I read about it, oi...) The resultant effect is very nicely done (and original I might add).

    • the notes
    • the sky effects, moving stars
    • the shear detail
    • the DETAIL (yeah needs mentioning twice)
    • the infestation textures!
    -- (don't worry just simple suggestions)
    • the planet and sun sprites both have a white edge (probably caused by transparency when saving the image?)
    • the fan should go faster when using that sound tounge.gif
    • the spinning thingies at the grav machine, perhaps block them off so you can't stand on it as a skulk (looks weird when not moving while standing on it)
    You've got a jewel here!

    yes, I don't either when I shout it tounge.gif at one point got angry with this map and changed project name to this and it stuck.

    and the sprite thing, I tried making them couple of times, but those white stripes never went away sad-fix.gif and they
    appear only when its overlapping with another sprite. don't know how to fix them.
    secondly I too thought it could be nice to somehow block players touching the rotatin thingies, but then again
    I don't see any downside either aslong as you don't get stuck & jammed in it.

    and thanks for the crits & praises for everyone else too (:
    wanted to warm up with this before jumping to source or some else engine

    oh, very mucho thanks :)
    nice to hear it's playing rather well for a map that I didn't draw a single line of layout :P
    I checked out your server, but the latency is somewhat 350 for me :(

    thanks again.

    Yeah, Custom Factor is based in Australia.
    So if your from overseas then you might get a bad ping.


    Great map by the way, i was there at the first playing on Custom Factor and the game went for about 45 mins if i remember...

    Only thing i can mention is maybe make the hive a bit bigger, it was very hard for marines to get into because the entrances are small and easily guarded by onos...


    Apart from that, Awesome Work!

    Just watched the Youtube vid. Pretty good stuff. Only thing I spotted which can be annoying is water in the Hives. It slows down Alien ground movement so makes spawncamping easier as those first milliseconds when you spawn could mean you treading water and going nowhere fast, by which time you are -that's right- dead.

    I really like the (first in game) screenshot of the hallway with the light coming through the windows. So seldom is that light effect used, but when used properly it improves the visuals of a map hand over fist.

    Very nice map. The textures are cool and the lighting adds to it.
    That, and the unique elements like the gravity hallway are a fun addition. smile-fix.gif

    What exactly does the weldable in the hallway do?
    The weldable in the hatch in the middle off the map is pretty nice, but it's a little hard for marines to get there. (At least, I jumped around in MS and managed to get into a vent that leads to it.)

    when you break down the GRAVITRON it opens the weldabe close to spartacus poster, so you can
    fix those spinning things again if you get annoied with low gravity.
    and that hatch door. it was mainly meant for jetpackers, but yeah, there could be a easier way around.

    and for spellman23.
    A: no, unless someone makes them :p
