CTFM-Triton is finally finished!

Post by Koolflux » Sun Jul 21, 2019 2:40 am

After a while of working on the map, I have finally finished it.

This is CTFM-Triton, a 3 team Multi-CTF map. It's an orbital station orbiting Neptune. For the skybox, I took inspiration from CTF-Face, except this skybox has Neptune and Triton as opposed to Earth and the Moon. For the map overall, I went for a sci-fi style and textures from the Coret_FX and PlayrShp texture packs are heavily used.

Here's an in-game screenshot:

Attached is a .zip file containing the map and everything required for it to work.

Thanks!!
Loaded it up on the server, hopefully to be enjoyed soon with some people!
Skybox speed is really fast, is it supposed to do that? np though!
Nice Coret atmosphere for sure!

I sometimes lag on finally checking out stuff I download and only just checked out this map now. First off, beautiful map. Good flow and bots seem to know where they're going... minus a little door confusion which happens on a lot of maps.

2 questions:
1. Can I make a small edit, mostly silly?
Reason: In the main chamber where the paths to the 3 different sections are, I kinda wanna put a cannon on the ceiling representing the Gold Team, with a kill message of "Player was killed out of revenge on Liandri for denying the Gold Team the right to compete here".

2. There's a relatively small handful of CTF3 maps, and I had until this literally 3 of them. I'd like to change the prefix on the map from CTFM to CTF3 to better keep it organized with the others.

Even if no on all of that, still a great map.

I don't see it finished as pathing chapter - you could get rid of all nodes not having any purpose... and doing these more simple.
Just a two cents sample:

Either way good looking environment...

Hi,

I've placed all the files in the correct folders, but get this error message:

That's odd - perhaps you have another, possibly older, version of MultiCFTex.utx and didn't overwrite it?

Does the UT log give any more details?

Obviously you know your system etc but do you normally start maps from your desktop?

@EG - map was "finished" almost two years ago in case that you have failed old "news".

I know... but I had to ask.

Wow, I didn't expect this dead thread to become active again after nearly two years.

Anyway...

To both of those questions, I say "yes". A ceiling cannon to represent the gold team would be pretty cool. Also, the kill message you mentioned about revenge on Liandri because the gold team was left out of the game is pretty funny to me. Next time I make a CTF3 map, I think I might do something like that.

Admittedly, I misnamed the map somewhat. Looking back now, I definitely should have prefixed it "CTF3" instead of "CTFM". Again, this was an old thread from nearly two years ago, so to see activity on it again definitely caught me by surprise. Maybe I should make a remake of this old map of mine.

When I dropped those files into the correct folders, nothing said the file already existed or gave an option to overwrite. Usually I add the files to the folders, then play the map (from the desktop) and if I like it I drop it permanently into the maps folder.

Made a slight alteration to the message, otherwise it would've taken up 2 lines in the talkbox... which I find annoying.

Used Dispersion 2 ammo, which is yellow.

I have just noticed that the PlayerStarts for each team are somewhat unbalanced
Red = 10
Blue = 7
Green = 4
Some of the Red team starts are in the Green team area.

So the question is - does the map run OK if you put it into your maps folder?

I'm not sure how the ideal player count of 5 - 7 works when split three ways? (Obvously 6 works as 3 teams of 2 but 5 and 7?)
