some screens from a map in the making. after working quite a lot on pul4ctf i felt that i had to do something else for a while.

this is meant as a fun ffa map - mindless fragging.


there are jump pads and launch pads all over the place.


it's mirrored and if mirrored again it could be turned into a ctf map as well.


the platform with stripes goes up and down between the four floors.


the orange wall texture is a placeholder but i kinda like the colours Smiley

It looks great, very distinctive Grin

However it also looks completely symmetrical, and my gut feeling is that that is not ideal for FFA maps (for CTF maps, definitely, but not FFA).  I wish I could be more helpful and say more precisely what's wrong, but I can't explain it right now.  Maybe it's just me Smiley

Maybe it could be good for Harvester, placing the skulls receptacles in two platforms on the upper level, and the skull generator on the lower level...

i've got an idea on how to make it a bit more interesting in layout. that will also remove the mirrored thing. will have to look though, if it's really a good idea Cheesy

Or Double Domination, with one point in the single platform and the other in the very upper level. Tongue

Multiply it by two and color it appropriately, and you've got a good stand-in for bubctf1

Since remakes are going to be cut from the later full releases, this one can act as the wrackdm17 replacement.

i added an extension to one platform. two launchpads hurls the player to the surface and then sliding up the wall.


the floor texture on the sloping surface has a slippery surface that the players can slide up/down.
a texture with less grip will be used later.


there's a quad at the top and the little jump on the way down can be used to drop down to the horizontal teleporter.

Personally, I like the look of this map and would love to try it out.  I tend to play CTF almost exclusively, but this would get me away from that for a while at least.  Smiley

Sounds like a fun idea!

i've been kinda stuck on this one for some time - but yesterday i began work on more final brushwork again. the next posted version will have changed a lot when it comes to the general layout. i've also decided to name the map "hit the ground running" Smiley

I see where you got the slidy-slope idea from, definitely an underused mechanism. The theme is very appealing, too. You might want to consider extending some of those yellow pillars beyond the top level, so players there are not completely open (don' t know if there' s a railgun or not).

some recent images of this map. it's very different from the last version i posted images of. the map is not mirrored down the middle anymore.


the pyramid shape in the center of the image is an indoor area, with four entrances.


there's a flat area on top of the pyramid with a bfg. above it there's a 16-ton weight hanging in the air. when a player reaches the top of the pyramid an alarm goes off and any player that shoots a trigger (bright red in the images) will drop the weight.


this area is somewhat untouched from the earlier versions.


this is the entrance to the indoor area from below. when a player goes up the jump pad the hatch will open.


two entrances to the indoor area.


main area indoors. players going down the teleporter vortex near the slippery slope will drop down from the teleporter exit up in the ceiling. on the far side there's a display showing if any players are up at the bfg.


this is the hatch where players come up from the lower entrance. pushing the lever between the two displays "hatch closed" will open the hatch and instead show "hatch opened".


main area from the opposite direction.

note that this is a pure fun map. it's probably not very balanced and the bots will not understand the weight - how to get there and neither use the slippery slope. so bot-play will probably not be that fun :/

i will try to make a playable version as soon as i can - but the shaders and texture folder is in a real mess at the moment...

Beautiful map in my opinion.  Looks *very* fast paced and complex enough to allow several different fighting styles.  I'm looking forward to trying it too.  Cheesy

I have to say this map looks like it would be fun. I like the weight idea it seems just so wrong , but at the same time so right.  Evil
