===================================================================

Update: 9/6/2012

Wiki seems the best way to use this for the moment. Once release hits, I'll do a revisit to how we want to organize a maplist. Probably only want to have maps fit a few different categories, such as [ Official ] [ Community Released ] & [ Beta / Alpha ]. Basically only maps in playable states, otherwise the list will just get bogged down with half-finished projects. The last list had about 50 entries with only 10% of those still in progress. Which makes me sad, because some of them were gorgeous!


One thing I'd like to ask of folks is to try and write a bit of backstory into your area, even if you plan on changing it later.

    Took a break from the editor for a while, was taking some time to see what is all out there and thought that this sort of thing would be useful to anyone browsing this subforum. I've only made entries so far for maps that have individual threads. Hope you guys find this useful! I'll keep it updated as much as possible.

    Fixed extra unnecessary color tags and added indentation. May remove this later, not sure I like the way it looks with it.

    not sure how I'm going to organize this yet, alphabetically by progress?

    Alphabetical seems the best IMHO, easier to find "that" map with "that" name. Even if we have CTRL+F :P

    Too bad the spoiler tags don't fold up like some forums do, that way it would be much nicer the read with the extra info hidden behind a button...

    Also, maybe make use of the list and quote options to seperate the content and make it more readable?

    CODE
    [quote][list]
    [*][b]map 1 info [/b]
    [quote]and other stuff
    like links and so on...[/quote]
    [*][b]map 2 info [/b]
    [quote]and other stuff
    like links and so on...[/quote]
    [*][b]map 3 info [/b]
    [quote]and other stuff
    like links and so on...[/quote]
    [*][b]map 4 info[/b]
    [quote]and other stuff
    like links and so on...[/quote]
    [/list][/quote]


    Or maybe the
    CODE
    [indent][/indent]
    instead of the list... Heck all of them are nice to use, I used the on my NS1 map threads...

    Dropped you a pm.

    Good job anyway and I agree with Kouji, alphabetical order makes sense.

    I'm not sure I like any of these, but indent seems the best option...

    Please include my map with 6 Resnodes, and 8 tech. This will be a scattered layout. ( With a bit of ns1 feeling of course ;] )

    Small correction ^^ prospecter will have 7 res nodes, not 9 (the spawn techpoints don't have a res node ontop of them :p, thats just to indicate starting points). Depending on testing though i could always bump it to 9 by adding res nodes somewhere else.

    Great list though. sticky i say! STICKY!

    Here is Thedron. Which has symetrical hive points
    .

    It is ok for now, but you can change "Completion: [ Production , 45%]" if it is needed. Tech/ Res Nodes still unknown. I need first maps and I have to check what is going on in new NS. Also waiting new objects,textures,items etc.

    I can complete it in 2 weeks I think but I need more developments in SprakEditor, Textures, Objects and NS2 Game Engine. So final may be released after the first 5 or more official final maps released.

    Hey Drown, you've got a bit of formatting problems with mine and barlows name. Also you can update mine to 40% done.

    Yeah I'm not exactly sure if it's a good idea to keep track of development percentage. I was thinking of going through this kind of a structure for that bit...

    [ Concept ]
    [ Planning ]
    [ Production ]
    [ Testing ]
    [ Released ]
    [ <insert current ns patch> Revised ]

    Keeping track of production percentage might be beyond my ability to keep track of... but if folks post updates in the thread that should be easy enough. I'll reformat the colouration as well for now to include the percentages you guys want me to include. =)

    I'm also considering just now, isntead of doing a revised bit including a bit that details something along the lines of a 'project last updated on so and so date'. Just so I can sort out projects (eventually) that are inactive and won't get released or fixed for new patches. Sort of like how Nancy got left behind in ns1 for a long while.

    edit:
    Oh you just meant the /color issues.... heh!

    I think it looks good as it is now (with the indent).

    Shame there's no way unbiased way to add a star next to the AWESOME ones (e.g. sly / psyko / barlow, no offence at anyone else, they are just my personal favs).
  • TSSTSS Join Date: 2010-05-11 Member: 71716Members Posts: 151
    Why dontcha go with Alpga/Beta/Final instead of testing/released. Could add a version number as well i guess, once maps reach that.

    And favorites... Lets not get into that and keep it objective. Even if i'd have the bottom map i don't mind but the really great ones will be included in the official release, and that'll make the makers enough of a star :P Lets keep the list just a list.

    What would be awesome though is to make a "community map pack" and update it with all released maps for 1 single handy download. Just a .rar file with the proper files in the proper directories + a little credits.txt :p If all those maps on the list are going to be released it'll be a pain downloading them individually.

    Well if I added version numbers the problem exists is that I want to be able to maintain release versions for specific patches.

    For example...


    Map Name: [ ns_nancy] by lazer
    Completion: [ Release - patched for v. 3.2 ]
    Nancy, there was a hive that used to not have a name.


    alternatively

    Map Name: [ ns_nancy] by lazer
    Completion: [ Released: current v. 1.47b ]
    Nancy, there was a hive that used to not have a name.


    So I guess in review the second one is more informative for the intended audience of server admins and mapmakers alike who look to update the map for the server...or want to see how a person address certain issues. The first one just shows if the map has had a revision accounting for possible changes with a new patch. Guess the first one isn't necessary as you'd always want the latest release version.

    Also, since alpha is near I'll want to figure this out pretty quick and since bet you guys are going to rush together early alpha tests of their maps to play with I want to add a download section for the compiled maps. And/or the uncompilable source files if you guys want. So the final format would be something like...

    Map Name: [ ns2_name] by name
    Completion: [ Alpha - Version x.xx ]
    Download: [ here or here ]
    Source: [ here ]
    map blurb.

    I'll eventually add a way to differentiate any maps awarded with the official UWE seal of approval... such as if they get qualified for release with the game.

    edit:
    But I'll still sort them alphabetically.

    final format looks good IMO ^^ contains all the info we need to know. Current version > patched for, since your always looking for the latest version anyway. If one where to specifically look for older versions i'd use this thread to get to the original thread and look there.
