congrats on 0.7.7! As I said (A while ago) I've been testing this map, and I want someone to give me ideas on what to add, and how to add it (I'm having a hard time making realistic engines on the outside of the ship)

I'm also thinking of making it possible to get into the flag room from above the ship (The big windows in the rooms)

So tell us when a new beta is available for download. I will add new / testing maps to our server as soon as there are enough maps.

There should be a new download up soon, I'm getting some things cleaned up on my machine at the moment...

It's up, there are now items in the halls, including some more powerups!

I still need help on making the outside of the spaceship look more realistic

It is tested and running with  the newest version of OA, bots are taking a new route now though

Hi Pyrarrows!

The map doesn't look bad. I especially like the screenshots from the storage room. But you definitely need more detail. I'll give more examples for you to see what I mean.

In front of the bridge you have some concrete structure resembling a scaffolding. This should be more detailed. If you were in a spaceship, you would have nice spectacular windows there.

Or the armories - they are painfully spartan. One texture per room is bad. Try redoing the armories. Maybe creating some storage lockers or shelves would do the trick, etc...

You also need to differentiate textures on the floor, ceiling and walls in order to help the player orient himself within the level. Plus, if something looks awkward, try to make your own textures or ask someone to create them for you. For example - in the bridge, you should have more hi-tech machinery - computers and such.

I don't want to dissuade you from creating hi-tech levels, but the need for detail and special textures is the exact reason why I prefer to map levels in medieval style.

Thanks for the good points, I'm going to get a darker metal texture for the floors, make the bridge larger, and add more to the engines, If someone would tell me how to make windows, I'd make some windows for the bridge

I'm going to add some more things, such as sleeping quarters, and modify the armories, maybe take out some of the more powerful things and place them into better hidden areas

EDIT: I've done some rennovations on the bridge, which will make a few cabin areas on the ship as well, The bridge is now about 3x larger than it used to be, There are now many more consoles (Nothing on them yet, as I havn't had the time to make any gfx...) Next on my list is the Engine room, and all the wasted space around it, and a small addition to the flag rooms

Did you find the hidden area in the engine room?

I think I could help you with some graphics for the consoles, etc... I wanted to do the CTF map - Facing Castles, but noone has expressed interrest in helping me yet, so I can help you. Smiley

Thanks Smiley

The only problem that I'm having is making realistic looking glass in the windows, I'm just using clipping blocks,  Weapon attacks can go through, but not you!

Can you give me any ideas on what i should do with the ammo room?  I'm trying to figure out what I should do there...

I don't like the idea of "armories" in the maps in general, but you could make the room bigger and place every item on a small piedestal or in a recession, in order to make the room less boring and rectangular. Realistic approach - placing the items on tables or inside cabinets - doesn't look good, IMHO.

If that offer still stands, it would be nice if I could get some space-ship style gfx...

I should be able to do some work on the map again now.

I'm not fond of double-posting, so I'll say it here, I've made the last version of "CTF Spacesip" that I'll make, from now, it'll be Pyrarrow's Spaceship"  Once I start the editing, A large number of items will be removed, and the level will be cleaned up, more detals will be added too

Ok, there will be one last version of CTF Spaceship, and then I'll start converting this map for Pyrarrow's Spaceship
(Mainly removing items, and making the ship look a little more spaceship-ish)

EDIT: I'll make sure that the file is uploaded in a .zip file this time...

EDIT2: new version is up, Elimination and DD mode are now available in this map Smiley

Nice to see that you're able to get on top of the box that will be a spaceship in future version. Please enlarge everything (hallways, rooms, ...) and have less straight floors.

"Detailed" is nice, but if it gets in the way of clarity, it ceases being a nice addition and becomes a problem. - TVT

Kind of surprised to see this post near the top of this section again!  Can't edit the top post any more, probably due to the fact that this thread is ~11 years old now...  oof, where did the time go...

Starting to get back into Open Arena so I -might- start working on this map again, though I probably should create a new thread if I do.  For now, here's the links.

These are the final set of files that I released back in '08, so no changes at the moment.

Neat! I'll mirror it soon, for preservation purposes.

Most of us are now on Discord. I don't know if you're in the channel as well. If not, I can give you the invite link via PM.
