Announcement! DM-FrostM

Post by Power107 »

My next map is called DM-Frost. But unfortunately I do not have anything to show yet...May make a WIP thread soon! :rock:
EDIT:
Just like DM-KGalleon: the map is now called DM-FrostM.
Full name: Frost Megacorporation's Headquarters

Dude... that's not how this works.

First paragraph of our House Rules.
The most important rule:
Don't create placeholder threads! Create threads in case you have an actual argument to discuss.
I know you are new, and that's why I won't scold you.
But please read the forum rules first viewtopic.php?f=1&t=149
Thank you.

Edit----------------
btw "Frost" is a too common name. I suggest to add something from your name to it to make it more unique and avoid mismatches on server.

Agreed! :tu:
EDIT:
I completely disagree :mad2: map is renamed to DM-FrostM
Full name=Frost Megacorporation's Headquarters...The full name of my map is better than the name of all other UT99 maps...
Prove me wrong if you want to. :D
EDIT 2:
I will be using P107 for beta so I changed my opinion...I now partially agree instead of disagreeing.

A better place would be Misc | Off-Topic, because this thread has nothing to do with mapping. If everyone would write what he wants to do... WIP is ok, but just an announcement? (I remember another complete useless post of him...)

Which one??? Also, this thread is for announcing a map so fits in mapping section for me.

You don't announce the idea or the name of a map ...you show some work-in-progress pictures, concept-art or don't post about it all.
For just pictures of the map without a WIP-thread use the Screenshots thread.

Thank you.

I always put RF in my files I upload and texture or maps.

I want people to know what it is, like quake1 DM6 but add RF , or some generic name like say, DM-Glass, I would add RF like DM-GlassRF.
Or DM-Glass_RF

In zip files I always use small letter and only letters or numbers, never characters
AND never use long names, I despise a long map name because it sticks out from the rest of them in directory view

Like what you have, a bit too long., but that is just me.

But, DM-Frost Megacorporation's Headquarters. is too long for directory view or map list names. IMO

I never said I will make a map called DM-Frost Megacorporation's Headquarters...You have a misconception, there is how I will fix it:
A map's full name is not a map's file name for example CTF-Face->Facing Worlds

You widely missed my point.

First off, your Flamboyance is getting in the way of convincing me to try your maps.

Secondly who gives a fuck that you trying to see what you can do makes a difference no matter how many threads you post.

You are acting cocky but have noobie maps. so when I say your map names are too long don't give some shit about some UT stock map name.

This thread shouldn't even exist right now (like papercoffee said, placeholder thread), and already we have a disagreement.

@Power107 Take the feedback appropriately, don't just make excuses, alright? Only make a thread when you have something to show, or use the Screenshots thread for WIP screenshots.

@Red_Fist Bit overreacted there, don't see anything wrong if his filename will be FrostM, and his Level Name (the name you see when looking at the scoreboard is Frost Megacorporation Headquarters). If he does it like that, fair enough, right? :noidea

Thread locked!

Edit: changed thread name, for less confusion
