Re: ==[ The 20th Anniversary Mapping Contest - 20AC ]==

damn! not done yet - i ran out of time - so i'm out :) so hopefully "CTF-20AC-eXP" will arrive as a bonus map - time allowing. *** Thought about submitting one of my nearly done beta maps instead, like fallen angel, liandri towers, or one of a dozen others but decided no, i won't do that because it ...

Re: FNB 20AC mapping stuff

hmm... brushes are complex yes, but nothing all that crazy, imo - everything's under control now - Thankfully :) I am thinking DOM now, rather than CTF ... Then I worry only about "one side", rather than having to duplicate a 2500 brush base :P Same thing happened with simplex back in 2006, iirc. DM...

Re: FNB 20AC mapping stuff

Well haven't really had much time lately for this - 20AC thing - but when i get a spell i go a bit crazy. This started life when the contest did, although i started building stuff and textures etc, in other map spaces. The iconic Lighthouse, a bit lacking in ut99, but still standing although prone t...

Re: ==[ The 20th Anniversary Mapping Contest - 20AC ]==

really awesome looking stuff coming in now :tu: hope mine starts coming together soon! It's my second go at a map and looking like this one will hit around 5000 brushes (once i flip the base). don't get mad, I just have the contest logo in mylevel, since I went with a utx for custom textures. if i d...

Re: ==[ The 20th Anniversary Mapping Contest - 20AC ]==

Some nice looking stuff so far :) Thanks for extending

The bioshock map is currently unrunnable and unviewable in 3d - node-counts exceed maximum limit.
have cut it down, or look at alternative maps - i have a number of those ...

Re: ==[ The 20th Anniversary Mapping Contest - 20AC ]==

well i'm not sure about this... speaking only for myself, if there's an extention then I would be making a "new" simple map starting in december. November, unfortunately has become to busy with other things and I am nowhere near where I thought I'd be with the project. In fact, it is looking impossi...

Re: GTX 1660 Super

...Have been using a GTX970 for around five years... gtx970 :tu: same card here :rock: maybe i'll go 1660 next as well - price is right? The only 970 issue i've had lately was Bioshock 2 crash-outs on high dx10 surface details... had to knock this back to dx9, oh well. Not sure that is a card probl...

Re: War of the Worlds... again

...Granted, the 1st movie had no tripods in it, special effects in 1953 were limited, but that old film will always remain the best... I remember seeing this movie when I was a kid - I read the book and had WotW comics, so this movie seemed wrong to me. I thought they'd wrecked the story... Those m...

Re: Unreal series mod/map release history

... Championship was a disaster too but U2 was definitely their first flop ... fully agree with this - however, wasn't Championship2 a much better game? I seem to remember that was very egyptian-ish, decent level design and melee combat - is that the one? I think Swanky was a fan of #2 (he was disc...

Re: Unreal series mod/map release history

nice chart although a bit hard to read .... is there any green anywhere, lol? That big ut99 spike around 2007-08 was likely due to Blito3 contests and various map packs. these events always caused and uptick in mapping interest, even if short-lived... Curious, a plot of server activity over time wou...
