Hi all!

I'm glad to be back after the difficult year at my university. It's holiday now, so I have some spare time that I can dedicate to creating OpenArena content.

I've had an idea for a CTF map for some time now and I think it's time to start planning. The map should be two gorges, each with a castle. Something like Moon Dragon in UT2004. The style would be European romanesque - something like czest1dm, but nicer and using more original textures and models. The layout would be two castles on hills, divided by a mountain or gorge (so that the castles don't see each other - for the sake of graphics performance).

I want this map to be representative. I want to plan a lot before mapping in order to create a top quality map that would be one of the best in OA, gameplay and graphics-wise. I want this project to spawn a handful of new map objects and textures that would be useful in other maps. I hence challenge everyone who would be willing to participate in this project to post suggestions and ideas, so that we can start planning.

Regardz, Czestmyr

It seems like I'm not the only one with the Unreal influence. Tongue
I'd like to see how this map could be. ^^

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

Do a 'remake' of "Facing Worlds" from UT99.
It. is. fucking. epic.

There's one, and works very perfectly with OA. Look at it.

facing worlds is not facing castles - see, if you read his actual post you would notice the castles wouldn't see eachother

asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.

If that was for me, I was replying to kick52's post.

Hey, Armageddon_man! I can see that you would be interested in helping me map something like that. Are you working on something at the moment?

I'm busy with real-life things and working on an pseudo-adaptation of Q2CTF1 and another map for OA.
Also, my mapping skills aren't so good by now. :/

(I don't pay attention to details sometimes :/)
WHERE?

Look at the hidden link in the text of my post. Tongue
