CTF West Side Story 1961

Post by jmartin » Thu Dec 30, 2021 1:47 am

Okay, I might get beat up for this, but, yeah, I brought show tunes to Unreal :-)

This map commemorates the original 1961 film, and the recently released 2021 remake by Stephen Spielberg.

No weapons besides pistols.

In the movie, there are only knives and 1 pistol.

Knives almost seemed too - even more gratuitous so I left them out.

Thanks.

Nah, but if it sucks you will... j/k Thanks mate, I needed something that will keep me entertained after working on this damn mutator that was requested of me.

So I ran through the DM and CTF versions of your map. I still have a slight problem with the DM spawn points, but not complaining as long as I move quickly out of the general area. CTF was fun as and a must have for those that like playing CTF. Thanks for sharing!
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).

Certainly a fun map and a fine tribute to the 1961 film. I am not a fan of musicals but West Side Story is certainly an exception and a film that sticks in my mind (as does the music of course) - playing the map takes me back and rekindles distant memories - so thanks for another expert recreation :tu:

Thanks NemesisNeS

I believe there are only 4 PlayerStarts in the map, 2 for each "gang" so if there are a lot of players / bots maybe get clear as soon as you respawn so you don't get telefragged.

By the way, we saw the 2021 Spielberg remake at the cinema the other night, and WOW, they nailed it.

Good luck with the Mutator. Let us know when it's finished, can't wait to see it! :tu:

Thanks mate, this one isn't as easy as I thought. Specifically the person wants to have a mini-map with his servers logo on the bottom of it. But the mini-map as I tried to explain to him would require me to grab a snapshot of all of his custom maps on his server. I made a generic style compass and radar that will at the very least get him started, but that didn't seem to be enough... oh well. Taking a break from it for now, since I'm also trying to re-invent the wheel, by creating a modified version of the HUD as well :ironic: Got some anime that I have been meaning to catch up on, and so taking some time to catch up on it before I really dig in to code everything and show off my stuff to you guys.
