Jep.
It will be the 4th part of my proto series, starting with a pure space map (god_space) and then every step will lead to a much closer map (god_speed, god_evil (to be released when its done... Grin ) and god_base ofc).

@Akom: i use the GtkRadiant 1.5.

@Peter Silie: Don't know why, but i figured it's blender or something else  Tongue Cheesy

@Adriano: I hope you will find a little time to make a map for this package, you are a good mapper Cheesy ....maybe a CTF map ? Tongue Tongue Tongue

Anyway, the map i'm doing was named "Egyptian Trouble" and a brush at time i'm doing it Tongue but the question is: in this map i will put a custom music compiled time ago from my friend and i do not have nothing about this file about any copyright stuff, can i use it ? He gives me this music for my old project but i never used it.
Tell me.

If you don't have any indication about the copyright status of something, you have to consider it as copyrighted. The fact he gave it to you for another project does not automatically mean that you have the right to use it in different projects or to re-license it. You should try to contact him and ask him if he wants to release the work under PD or under GPLv2.

And I can guess that, unless that music was recorded all at once (with real people playing real instruments at the same time), they should exist some "sources", that should be included (and should be under PD or GPL, too... e.g. if it includes a "light saber" sound sampled from StarWars stuff, it cannot be used).

I'm hoping to have my maps for this pack being released for testing in February 1st. There's a lot of things I'm doing, and I've been slowing down a bit in this regard.

EDIT: Akom, Peter, Moixie, read your personal messages.

Hey Akom, did you check that all the textures/scripts from Evil Lair you used are exactly the same files that are in the GPL'd package Neon_Knight posted?

@Fromhell... we are waiting for your opinions about the stuff in those three packages... if that can be used in OA or not.

If needed, you may ask Udi if he can help you reproducing the same effect of those scripts, without infringing their copyright.

Hi to all  Grin

I have made my own textures (with effects) for powerup_spawn/jump/weapon_spawn.

Here is the screenshot:


I will modify the oa_akomdm2 soon and give it to you to test it......

Looks pretty cool. One question, though: are they animated or just static decals?

Maybe as tester? We need people who can test our maps as well.

I guess I can spice things up a bit in the mapping front, as well as get motivation to some people. Tongue

Restrictions: (Everything else is allowed)
  • GPLv2 compliance. You know, sources and license file. Especially for third-party assets.
    • Assets should be GPLv2-compliant. This is, Public Domain stuff and already GPL/GPLv2 stuff is allowed. Stuff made from scratch is allowed as well, as long as you provide the sources. Everything else (CC, copyrighted stuff -!-) is disallowed.
  • Reasonable filesize.
  • The map should work 100% into a vanilla OA folder. This means: no other requirements such as a compatibility texture package.
The release date is going to be in Easter 2013. First beta will take place February 15th.

Choose the style you want, the layout you want, etc. If there's enough people, we can start the work.

Who's interested?

EDIT: List of participants: (Most recent alphas/betas to be tested are linked)
  • Akom74 (The Crypt -FFA-; Danger Arena -FFA-)
  • Peter Silie (Fight -CTF-)
  • Neon_Knight (High Voltage -FFA-; Bioxide -CTF-; Underground Temple -FFA-)
  • Moixie (Mx1mn2 -FFA-; Mx1Ctf8 -CTF-)
EDIT 2: Resources

I'm in, 50% sure of that. It depends entirely on how busy I am with other projects.

Would it to taboo for me to discuss a flowchart of who does what in this project?

Not to be so full of myself, but I'm damn amazing at the editor, and I've found that the end result can be great if I have somebody alongside me to give me tips like "This should be adjusted, this shouldn't be here, you definitely shouldn't have put that armor there, etc. The general layout is what I do, but I require lots of feedback to "perfect" the map.

Also, is it safe to assume we're doing CTF? I want to challenge myself by doing a non-mirrored CTF map. I hope I can help out. It's been a looong time since I've done any work that hasn't been solo. It's far more effective to bounce ideas off each other.

Let me know any details; the more you bug me, the more likely I am to participate. That's party due to memory loss, heh.

Welcome aboard PsYthe  Grin Grin

Your idea of non-mirrored CTF map remind me some Unreal Tournament CTF maps. Great idea !

Warning only at the GPLv2 rules with copyrighted material.
For other things wait for Neon_Knight or FromHell. For tester i suggest Gig, as more knower of the GPLv2 stuff and he is very precise.

The flowchart is simple: we do what we know how to do. Tongue
Also, for testers it seems that we have to rely on each other mapper, unless I can find someone else to do the testing stuff. :/
We're doing both CTF and FFA, mapper decides which gametypes they choose to support. (Though I'd want CTF maps to also have support for 1FCTF, Harvester, Overload, eCTF, CTF, Elimination and DD as well. Shouldn't be much work in this regard.)

And your questions don't bother a single bit. Wink

I think moreover about FFA. And thx about compliment but I think I did/ I'm doing still some bad mistakes punched and I need to learn much map-techniques.


About the new map...

1.)

I think you wanted to add there (and the same on other side) the texture which is on the left of it ?

2.)
Basically the map is ok, but on top of the map it seems a bit too open (too much open space) +

3.)
combined with 2 lightning guns up there, it will be a mess there punched
(what about plasma?)
-> So maybe make some seperation (Idk how, you've to invent something) on the upper platform or shrink it a bit

Yes, it's a mistake but i think it's a marginal error, maybe i recompile the map after the release, or in case of big mistake found from players.

Err, it's too high, but no much. When you jump from the bumper sometimes you can use rocket to jump very high, but in a future release the sky will be shorted.

I knew I should rewrite that piece of text (I wrote not correctly) punched... I meant that the upper platform seems a little bit too large, because there are not much 'obstacles' there to hide (e.g.).
But I just saw the map again and I think it is also OK if you leave it like that (without changes). =D
