DM-Darkterritory in need of some repair

Postby MEAT » Mon Feb 12, 2018 2:20 am

I've had this map for years but never took the time to ask for help.
When you go to play it it's very fuzzy/choppy...unplayable.
Anyone have time to give it a look?

Avoid line-of-sight-distances above 32768 (2^15).
Maybe a SkyZone will avoid that flickering.

Ok ...this map is so screwed up I can't even count all that stuff that is borked.
Texture, lighting, geometry ... :omfg:

This map doesn't need fixing it needs trashing.
Sorry dude, but this map isn't worth the effort.

Basically it needs brushwork done a lot more by the book. You have those subtract tunnels with overlapping subtracts.

Brushes need to be intersected and de-intersected instead of just shoving things in and making it worse by using the terrain brush.

There is some translucent surface, map needs skybox and reduce the size of the map.

It's savable or fixable, just waaaaaaaaaay to big for DM

Missing Package CityTex.

EDIT:
Found a copy of Citytex.utx in an old directory, the map is just... How... Start again please...
I'll venture a guess that you are new to mapping (and good job on learning!).
You need to take more care with your brush placement, don't overlap brushes if you don't have too, using grid scale will help on extra large maps, don't make extra large maps...
If you use brush scaling then transform permanently after.
Don't be discouraged tho, we all start somewhere (I have maps from back around 2000 that aren't too dissimilar). The more you keep at it the better you will get, might I recommend starting a bit smaller to get the feel for it all.

@ExpEM
That's certainly not his own map.

I wouldn't know, but after a quick search on the forums I couldn't find any maps by MEAT, better to be positive and encouraging seeing as how small the community is now.

NOOO...I don't build maps.
That's why I'm asking for help.
Someone gave me this map years ago to be used on my server.
I run a Redeemer server that specializes in the fastest long range sniper deemer there is.
This map is perfect for my server...if only the map was playable.

I had a look ...and the only way to fix this map is to build it totally new.
Maybe you rather want to invest your time/energy into creating a remake.

But without that much useless space.

Yeah it's a big one but at the same time...that's the beauty of it.
A big map for a big weapon.
