Re: A bit of reminiscing...

Thank you, moddb is a nice place to submit maps and mods, especially since they force developers to add information and screenshots of their work.
I will probably download some of your maps myself this way. :)

Re: The End. Enjoy my junk while it still exists.

Has this anything to do with the discussion we've been having over at the main contest topic? Either way, here's the thing: if your entire reason of developing maps is to have them actively played and remembered, and to win contests, then no matter how good you're at it, it won't really work out. De...

Re: The AWESOME Mapping Contest

The problem is that there really is no demand, so even doing maps for top gametypes with top servers are just a best bet to have the maps played at all, and to do anything new one generally has to turn to scripting to do anything which is truly "new" in the sense Jack means it, which place...

Re: CTF-AMC-Blice (WIP)

Thanks. :) Yeah, the bases are inside the mountain(s). My vision is to have the flag at the center of the base, but at the level of middle entrance, with the middle entrance leading to a small bridge that connects to the flag, and have the overall base have a cold but rather sci-fi look. I don't int...

Re: The AWESOME Mapping Contest

Last year's contest was openly discussed here in the forum, where everyone could give their input, and we all went with ChaosUT as a theme. It didn't go that well imo. Although defining a specific gametype, or set of gametypes, to map for may be a way to go, maybe for the top gametypes played online...

Re: CTF-AMC-Blice (WIP)

Another update: now the outside has more architecture in it and is starting to look less empty. Don't mind the totally blacked out spots and architecture (the lighting will be mostly fixed at the end), and there's still some stuff missing on the outside (especially in the middle where the bridges ar...

Re: The AWESOME Mapping Contest

@JackGriffin: I understand your point, but it's unfair to ask for the kind of new things you want to see from a "mapping" contest. What you probably want instead is something more akin to "Make Something Unreal", where you could have maps, mods, tools, any kind of content develop...

Re: The AWESOME Mapping Contest

Personally I don't see these contests as a way to promote the game or to attract players at all, I see them as a good excuse to load up UEd once a year and create a new map just for the fun of it, given that it's a lot more fun to create a map when you're contributing to a bigger pack and when other...

Re: NW3 Megaton Countdown Issue

I just tested at home, and I was able to reproduce something similar, and I figured out what's happening. It boils down to the fact that I am casting strings to ints and vice-versa in a very stupid way, and in a way that I didn't consider that when I convert something like "030" to an inte...

Re: NW3 Megaton Countdown Issue

This countdown is not exactly my most brilliant code, and I kinda regret doing it the way I did it, but essentially the middle digit cannot be higher than 5. Therefore, if you set the MaxCountdownTime to "059" instead, it should work better (the idea is that the first digit is the minute, ...

Re: The AWESOME Mapping Contest

I would like to request a small extension to deliver the map for the final pack, if possible, something like finishing it until the 22nd to release the pack on the 23rd, otherwise I might not be able to make it in time, at which point I might have to release the map as standalone. I believe mappers ...

Re: DM-AMC-Thesuspense

I also like trains. :mrgreen:
Most of my earliest maps (released and unreleased attempts) were around trains or had them in some fashion. :)

I will have to try this one somewhere during this week.

Re: The AWESOME Mapping Contest

Okay so the maps are due today right? it's 2am where I am so how long have I got? I believe it's until the 10th inclusive, so I would say you have until 23:59:59 UTC of 10th to deliver it, but @papercoffee has yet to confirm this (I asked this before, no answer, but he got sick at the time, so I en...

I could, but it would make players very confused.
But makes you think, if there ever was a UT2004-like VCTF gametype, a map like this might prove it to be possible (and the smallest maps were the most popular in UT2004 as far as VCTF goes).

Re: CTF-AMC-Blice (WIP)

Another little update: only today I was able to work on this map again, but as you can see the progress has been slow, and while I have a somewhat clear picture of what I want to have in the outdoor area, I am still thinking on what I want to do indoors in the bases themselves. However, one thing I ...
