Title: [MAP] OA_Akomctf3
Post by: Akom74 on October 13, 2013, 03:19:56 am
Hello everybody.

Here is another CTF for OA. Starting from oa_akomdm3, i've made a CTF version for this community, and also for other OA community  ;D.

Just downloaded the map and given a first look. It seems very nice.  :)
I have not yet tried with bots.

The only thing I can already say is that maybe it would require some color-coded lights or textures to better distinguish in which base you are.

Tried also. I agree with Gig, those arrow decals alone (and the few team-colored decorations) aren't enough to distinguish both bases. Perhaps the jumppads could be team-colored as well with each team's base color? For example, blue jumppads inside of the blue base. Also add team banners, there are some of them (IICR) in the "cosmo/sfx" folder. The egyptsoc package (which you use in this map) also includes team-colored variants of the textures, take advantage of them.

So far, that's all I have to say by now.

Update !  ;D

Here is the Download Link:
Code:
https://app.box.com/s/tqlxrwragqfw8f7ia872

Updates:

 - Fixed some geometry and add a couple of columns
 - Changed sme textures with Team textures
 - Added Team Flags with custom textures (taken from OA original)
 - Fixed a couple of item bugs  :P

I hope you like this version, tell me.

;)

Now it's more clear in which base you are. Good job!  :)

Just a very simple suggestion (although it's not very important). Look at the attached screenshot: what about moving the red and blue arrows (that are not visible in the screenshot) more near to the crossing, so that they would be visible also from where I am?


Although I haven't tried with bots yet, the map looks nice, what about starting adding location names and support for more gametypes?

Thanks for your feedback.

Things to do:

 - Add team colored jumppads
 - Move team arrows in the crossroad as Gig suggested
 - Fix some lights
 - Add Name for Locations
 - Add support for Other OA Gametypes
 - Change the corridor's geometry to avoid the VIS problems to increase performance.

;)

I've given it another run. Now the bases are pretty identifiable, so kudos for that!

BUT! I took a look at the performance of the map, and there are some layout changes which must be done in order to improve in this area. Right now it's possible to see the other base from the very bottom of your base. This might look useful, but has a huge impact on the performance of the game, to the point of causing slowdown. As a suggestion, straight paths can be changed into C-shaped paths, inverted-C-shaped paths, or O-shaped paths. Always have cg_drawfps 1 (and vertex light off) so you can check where the most troublesome issues are.

Updated the "to do" list.

Thanks  ;D

Checked out the map, well...

Once more, symmetrical (sigh). It's not bad if a ctf map is symmetrical as in the red and blue side, but when both sides within the bases is symmetric as well that's just lame. You can do so much more than just copy-pasting pieces of layout.
A lot of textures appear to be missing, the one below each flag and some trimming which is all around the walls of the map.
It has the same issues as it's DM version...

What issues of DM version ??

Textures missing is an error, if you use this map with the oa_akomctf2 the taxtures are all ok.
Sorry, my bad :P :D

Look at my post on the community mappack.
The textures appear after viewing akomctf2, but that seriously feels bad. Maps shouldn't be independent of each other.
