@ Myth and Rohitgarg
My section is aiming to this isolated "replace me" don't close it ...please.
And no I don't use movers ...it is something special... Ok I tell it. It is a jump-elevator, a regional bordered low-grav field.
Today I'll finish my part.
And I know where I can put the other replace me. Can some one make a close screenshot of GenMoKais exit near my Section. Or I send Myth my finished part and he merge 'em and I take it again to build a proper connection between GenMoKais and my part.

What about the downward ramp Who use it? Otherwise I take it too and build some nice connection after that.

Btw ...is it allowed to copy some brushes from other builders?

Just do it. I also copied some stuff from Myths first part. At the end its even a good thing to adapt our map parts. So dont worry about that.

@Myth: I think you have to kill the isolated replace me brush. The other stuff looks so far ok IMO. Actually it looks like a curcuit. If we progress carefully from now on, I dont think it will cause any bigger problems. From the Top View I would say we have to "map" downwards.

@papercoffee :
I'm not closing anything, until you agree to close it.
You have 2 options:
• agree to close that brush and you build something else.
• build that jump-elevator properly from where players can access 2nd storey sections.

When you finish your section we'll see what we can do about that ramp.
There will probably be a smaller section which connects the 3 sections.

You can copy small parts from other sections, such as lights boxes pillars ect. Don't forget to remove them from their groups.

@forum: I think I should make a basic sky-box.

Elevators, Ramps, Jump Pads.
You could always use portals/teleporters.
I'm putting one in my room. I'll post pics later today with options. I'm at school.

Oh, and for the map music:
http://modarchive.org/
I've literally spent hours sifting through stuff on that site.
And all files are easily converted.

Teleporters were hated by several mappers, since they "force-cheat-change" the layout. DM-Gothic is the most fitting example for this. Personally I dont have a problem with that, but I also try not to overuse them.

My opinion too.
I'd figure we can use teleporters if the layout gets really bad, later in phase 2.

I've got the music part covered. I'll just open ModPLugTracker and try to make something original.
Also a lot of mods from modarchive aren't 100% compatible whit UT, just so that you know.

I upload the Map today ... have an Idea how to make my jump elevator work.
@ Gen do you see the downward ramp? Over the ramp I will build an corridor-bridge combination to connect our parts. The bridge will be build of grating and girder so you can see down to the ramp

Arghhhh I don't have group my brushes!

Ok. I ended up using the other two exits of Whitey's room and not the one I specified in order to avoid possible collision with PapersCoffee's addition.
I made the room similar to Myth's 2nd in that it's sort of a "corner/roundabout" room so someone can start building the other way and complete the "circuit."
There is one teleporter in there that can be replaced with some armor/ammo if needed.
Screenshots up tommorow night once lighting is finished. I haven't mapped in a while so I'm spending some time getting it right.

Oh, and I was wondering if you've guys seen this:

Dynamic moving water.
There's a D/L link in the description. Haven't tried it yet but it doesn't look too bad in the vid.

It was posted here before. It's just an animated mesh. Just like any other animation in ut99. It looks nice at first but the more you look at it the less awesome it when you realize it's a small repeating mesh and it all moves at the same rate.
