Hi to all OpenArena freaks!
I created my own OpenArena map. It's called "Monastery at Night" and the name pretty much tells you what it looks like. I'd like to see my map played on the Internet but unfortunately I was not successful in hosting a server. So if you run a server, feel free to add this map to your map rotation list. You're more than welcome to download and play the map.

I'm also open to any suggestions regarding layout, gameplay, etc...

Here's the link:

EDIT: Added a screenshot

UPDATE: Improved lighting and gameflow (also, the vis phase is complete now)

Try downloading it now. Sorry, I was uploading it using the Ascii mode, not binary. It works now for me.

Ooh, I like this level a lot.  Makes me wish I had made mapobjects.

You could use clip brushes in some places though, like outside near the roofs. It's possible to rocket jump up there and see other parts of the level from there.

and the wooden stuff on the ceiling in the table room affects flow greatly (i.e. getting stuck in a jump)

Nice map,but you might want to change the download extension from zip to pk3,since you only have the folders in the zip file.If i Had known,I would have changed it to pk3 before i downloaded it.

I can open the pk3 and everything SEEMS to be in place. Its just that it won't run when put in the OA base directory along with everything else.

Maybe you're still using the corrupt pk3? Try redownloading it, and placing the pk3 in the baseoa folder

By the way, there's no .arena file so it won't show up anyway

ps. is there going to be any .map source so it can possibly be included in oa or is it going to stay external?

Well I grabbed it this morning, which was after you'd commented on it so I have to assum that what i got was the propperly working pk3.

Then again my system might be to blaim. What with it not opening MSI files, who bloody knows what else is broke on the thing.

Edit: ok so no arena file. How would i add one of those?

Edit2: Got the map going. Must say its a real nice bit of deathmatch fun. Then again I don't do rocket jumps or shotgun bunnyhops or anything like that so I couldn't give you a nuts and bolts rundown. Plenty of items and weapons to go 'round. Glad the shotgun seems to be favored here as this feels like a veyr close quarters map.

My ONE complaint, and this is just nitpickery, is the scale the table/chairs are set at. Compared to the player they seem...rather large. Then again that could just be me. Although from my prespective it looked like the table was at about chest height(culda looked different in the mapper maybe?).

Good work. please give fromhellol the scource to this. I want it packed in iwth OA's latter releases. me and a few friends are gonna have FUN with this one.

It looks good and stylish, but there are a few places where r_speeds shoot through the roof which will make the game bog down.

Wow. Thanks for feedback everyone, I appreciate this. I would be very glad to provide the source and release the map under GPL (in fact, this was my intention to create a map, that could be included with the latter releases of OA - I planned making the source available from the beginning).  Unfortunatelly, I'm spending the Xmass with my family and the computer I designed the map on is in another part of my country, so you'll have to wait for the source till January.
Regarding the clipping - yes, that's a very good idea. I managed to rocket jump to the roof myself. But how do I create an invisible clipping brush? I tried applying the texture 'clip' from the 'common' folder to it, but it hasn't got any shader with it, so it wasn't invisible.

Finally online again...

One question about releasing my map source though: How do I licence it under GPL? I've done this for a few programs of mine, but this is not a program. It's a map for a computer game. Should I not be bothered about this?

Well the GPL needs to define "source", and the .MAP file would be the source in this case. As long as there's a BSP there should be a MAP.

An easy way to license it under GPL is just stick the COPYING file in the archive with your upload to assure this Smiley

I've added the .map source into the download file. I've also included the GPL licence with it. Try downloading now. Is that ok?

Update: I've improved the gameflow of the map, added a sniper tower and fixed the lighting. Download this new version if you want to play the map. I've uploaded this version to the formerly mentioned adress.
