the entire "void" in the editor turned into a GIANT HOM

Hmmm... this can happen when you turn the game-view on ...or what ever this little Joystick symbol on the 3D view means.
Strange.

Don't think a few large room but multiple smaller rooms.



EDIT: here is a preview of the current state of my map.

Well, that looks like DM-Escherland][

I've seen that HOM thing before, but on UT3 when Grid wasn't working properly that time I used it. Never was able to fix it as it was due to the machine.

Either way, by default if you have a map in additive geometry mode which is possible with some hacking and the 227 editor allows you to start a map as "new additive"...which was the original mode in unreal alphas btw...

well then everything is the void, the real void. And that is HOMed by default unless there is a backdrop set. Now the functionality for real backdrop got fucked up. There's no way setting a real backdrop but at least in 227 you'll get a backdrop if you set up a skyzoneinfo somewhere in the level still.

Or you do it the ut3 way and put a damn sphere mesh around the whole level....

You could use XMesh since that makes the mesh not disappear from an angle (this is only natively fixed in 227 but xmesh provides a hack to make it work).

Is only one day left?

This kind of reminds me of Daikatana, of the Greek levels that is.

Those were actually good and were initially designed by John W. Anderson (Dr sleep), the same guy who did siobhan/seti/batset btw. Though he left the team and his work was then worked on by another guy and his levels past the Medusa level were cut completely.

It's funny, I thought it was the first. So I ended up getting things finished up early. I actually am done. Didn't rush to do it. I'm glad the way it turned out.

overall fun contest.

Anyone ever tried getting bots to Xloc through a WarpZone? I swear my brain is melting...

Well, I have no idea if this is going to work, but if you're putting TranslocDest at the other side of the warp zone where the bot would end up in, did you try instead to put the TranslocDest inside the actual warp zone itself?

EDIT: I forgot that the engine spawns markers to connect paths from one warpzone to another... so maybe the engine is not recognizing your warpzone as being "path-able" for some reason?
Is it a one-way warpzone or so?

Two way WarpZone, I did find a bug in the 227 build that borks up pathing through warpzones (not connecting WarpZoneMarkers), however using 436 wasn't much better (tho it did path). For now I've thrown out the WarpZones entirely for Teleporters, I may re-instate the WarpZones if I have time.
