Title: I made a map :3
Post by: ratix on January 21, 2007, 02:05:13 pm
This is my first (second) map made with gtkradiant. It's a 1vs1 map called "duel" and it's not done yet, but I thought I'd post the current version here for a little feedback and possibly help :)

hehe almost reminds me of the mobius strip

it's probably too linear though

looks interesting :), but I'd have to wonder how well two people bounce around without getting blown off by a rocket. I'd suggest maybe something without a heavy blowback :P. Railgun/Plasma etc come to mind :).

Well. That's the point, being pushed off the map :p

Hmm...

You could use a no-drop brush/texture just above the trigger-hurt so dropped weapons don't appear to be floating in space after people fall to their death.  Also people should scream when they plunge.  (trigger_multiple > target_speaker > noise *falling1.wav )

Looks like it would be a challenging map as people going up also have to pay attention to jumping on the next step.

Yeah, it can be tricky to get the stair-climbing right, but that's nothing compard to how many times I died before getting the stairs safe enough by testing and tweaking :p
Thank's for the tip, this map needs some effects to compensate for the small size, maybe I should add a jump pad beside the lowest platform so the one who's at the upper platform don't get the benefit of height.

How do I use that map?

You download it, place it in the baseoa-directory (unix: ~/.openarena/baseoa , windows: openarena/baseoa), start openarena, bring down the console (tilde, ~) and type \sv_pure 0, enter, \devmap duel_wip, enter

I think that map sucks. Reminds me of Void4 a bit, which also sucks. You wanted feedback and you got it. :p

Hehe. I haven't actually played it against someone yet, so I wouldn't really know. It was my first compiled map and I guess I was just excited to post it here just for the kick of it :p, you should have a look at my other map.
And by the way, I like void4, for its simplicity and the joy of railing others "into the void" :)

Ya, I just don't like maps that are so easy to fall off. I'm all over the arena when I play, and not being able to jump all over the place without risking a suicide is craptastic.

Other map? Hmmm, I'll take a look.
