I didnt get V2 done in time for the 20th. Only minor cosmetic things wrong with V1 plus I think I want a few more spawnpoints and work the pathnodes a bit better.

But so far everytime I rebuild it one or more of my zones stops working. It's not overzoned though, but I think I'm going to have to completely redo the zoning on the terrain, but since I missed the deadline to make my map V2 I'll just take my time now and do the fixing right.

try this
- change some brushes from solid to semisolid,
- or from semisolid to solid
- or from nonsolid to semisolid (if they are not for zoning)
- move the entire map to a different sport

Well looks like the mapping contest has spawned many great ideas and maps this year .
I have downloaded all of them ,played them,and reviewed each one of them .

Every map has some thing new and exciting it it.Many custom brushes , cool lights ,innovative ideas ,Awesome Job guys.

Looking forward to see the out come but either way I think most every map here will be on our servers for our own personal use either way .

Thank guys From all of us at The {dFb} clan for all the hard work and efforts .

rakiayn thanks, I am not sure if that will fix it though but If I need to I'll move it again and/or change brushes. I noticed that without the terrain I have like 24 zones, but with the terrain it spikes almost 30 more zones. That is because I just put one HUGE zone brush over the entire terrain (so each nook and cranny in the terrain has it's own zone). I think just I need to go back and readd individual zone boxes whereever there are actually lava zones (instead of adding zoneinfos into the existing huge zone), that will reorder the zoning for at least one final working build.

I might be wrong. but I dont think ued likes boxes for zoning. maybe you should try only to use sheets for zoning?
in my map dm-xc-healpyramid I was using boxes for zoning and got a lot of trouble with bsp errors

I'm re-uploading a new zipFile to mediafire (shortly) that has the missing packages and screenshot and readme

- no changes to the UNR though, the new zipFile will be named "DM-XC-EpicTownV1.zip"

Ping me when you do FnB. I just set up a server for the Christmas maps (new thread incoming in a moment).
So long, and thanks for all the fish
