Thanks for the feedback sektor!

The flames were one of the last things I added to the map. I also had plans to add simulated waving water with a splashing waterfall using the same method as the flames, but I couldn't do it, because of the contest deadline :( .
I will experiment with water in the future and see if I can apply this method for my future maps. In theory it should look amazing.

Edit: I am requesting your permission for using your flames combined with a dynamic light - in whatever future. I want to see if I can do a real fire effect. I did whatever dynamic light using a TorchFlame - but your flames are looking more realistic...
Yes, no problem, you can use the flames... in exchange for your bot pathing knowledge. :wink: :wink:
Bot pathing is a very complicated topic for me, I never knew how to handle them. I don't even know how you managed to display the botpath "links" (the yellow and green lines connecting with each other). Are there any tutorials for this type of bot pathing I can check on?

Also, you've mentioned the invisible walls on the ledge. I have fixed some of the invisible bsp glitch walls earlier today, as well as some other bug fixes - you can check it out in the map release thread, I have updated the download link to RC4. viewtopic.php?f=5&t=14845#p133090
Check out how the bot pathing is in RC4 and let me know your feedback. Thank you!

So many maps but I only have 2 that have grabbed my attention. Good luck to the all participants. This is going to be a good one.
I miss $1.99 movie theaters, .25 cent candy bars, and a bucket of popcorn bigger then your head for $2.75. I miss going into a magical carnival with tattoo covered contortionists, big breasted bearded ladies, and a half man/half woman exhibitionist named Taylor handing out tickets for the latest roller coaster ride, instead of having all three of these either taking my coffee order, ringing my groceries up at the super market, or deciding whether or not I get a bank loan today. Shims and Shmoos, Herms and Hawombs. Everything changes (good or bad).

That's what made it effin fun as hell. Especially if you can camp in the right spot and just let off like a mad man. :mrgreen:

To me is overcrowded because I'm getting used to do these simplified. Either way that ramp... it's one way...
HT_4_Before.PNG
If you can figure, PathNode on ledge has only Paths going down, and nothing is coming from ramp. And then... after "loving" its location a bit and using Editor for reconstructing paths, stage has been changed... in both bases.
HT_4_After.PNG
The other discussion with setting up Editor for viewing paths properly it's maybe part of another topic, here can be off-topic and readers might get frustrated. We can setup a discussion around paths debugging subject elsewhere - public, because others might be interested about whatever quirks which tutorials are not very explaining or they don't explain at all, not even those writing these are not really aware how do these work and even myself I did not test all situations, usually I'm "drawing" a stage when some map has a scenario that need to be investigated in detail and I'm cloning a closer situation with logs printed.

:facepalm: Oh dear, I forgot to mention in the readme of AS-NRMC-Rendezvous that you need to go to your UnrealTournament.ini find [Botpack.Assault] and set bNoMonsters to False, otherwise the map cannot be finished. So if you are having problems is most likely because of that. Definitely fixing that for the mappack...

LOL So that will explain why I could complete the assault run. Thanks mate!

Where should mappers release their new versions of the maps?

When is the cutoff date for map updates?

I was supposed to be home today but due to snow and COVID impacts on the airlines, the earliest I'm going to get back to my computer the end of the week.
