And I would like oa_akomdm3 officially released Cheesy anyway, shifting the deadline is a good idea, otherwise Akom74 will get all the glory Tongue

Muahahaha !!!  Grin Grin ....just kidding.... Tongue

By the way, even jangroothuijse, Moixie, Peter Silie and Neon_Knight have some jobs "work in progress" and i think that in the beta will have about 10 maps, am i wrong ?  Huh

I also vote for moving the deadline.

BTW, my map (oajgdm1) is called "The other side".

For the next 5 days, I won't be able to go on the computer because of working. The next next week I'll also have much work and I won't be able to work on maps. The next next next week, I'll have to do what I couldn't do the 3 previous weeks but I'll have much more time. I already accumulate lateness and I fear I won't be able to do what I planned to do when I accepted the project.

To sum up, if the deadline was shifted it would really help me.

By request, every deadline has been shifted by a week. This means: more time to do what we have planned.

Also added jan's map to the list.

oa_akomdm4
It's so easy to fall and die there Sad especially with clumsy mobile controls. But it's a feature of this map. I don't really care if the gravity inside the ship is low - I'm not doing lot of jumps there, also the ceiling is not very high, so it bumps your down. The gameplay seems to be okay, and the stars effect is very cool.
Minor cosmetic changes could be made:
1. The pad with battle suit at the center is disconnected from the ship, and just floating in the air. I would make it something like a very small ship (escape boat?), or attach to a ship with something like chains hanging from the upper part of ship (however medieval chains inside futuristic space ship look little weird). Maybe with tubes or some kind of force beams.
2. The teleporter image looks like stars, so I though at first it's another window leading me to instant death. Some other texture would be nice, or maybe make it pulsating, so it more looks like teleporter.


oajgdm1
The map looks awesome, and plays very fine with cellphone, because it's big and open, there should be more maps like that in OA. I think I'll put it on my dedicated server along with oa_akomdm3 when the mappack will be released. Now, the things I would like to change:
1. Megahealth - it's only on one half of the map, and just lying on the ground, too easy to grab. Either make another megahealth at the similar spot on other half of the map, or put it at the map center instead of rocket (or near the rocket), or maybe put it in some spot not so easy to reach, for example here:

2. These two parts make me anxious, because I cannot jump there. Either make it reachable, or remove the slope, so that you understand from a single glance that you cannot jump up there:

3. I would replace those Tron-style textures with something more Aztec/Inca/Maya:

The pillars and all the black textures should be obsidian Aztec, and the wall to the right that splits the level should be dark stone Aztec:

But don't change this texture, I would like tiles of this color in my bathroom Smiley


I would like something like this (I don't know the license of these images! probably not GPL, I've just googled for "aztec architecture"):

Akom, I like the ability to go to the roof of the new version of the map.  Smiley
A thing I would suggest, if possible, is to place some kind of windshield (windscreen) texture on the eternal front of the ship. Players cannot enter the command cockpit, but anyway I suppose the existence of a command cockpit should be hinted.

For the battle suit pad, probably Pelya is right... who knows, maybe you may give it some enegy fields that would connect it to the ship, or its own small trusters...

Map Modified !!

@GiG: Here is the cockpit !!  Grin (with MY glass-texture and script)

@pelya: Now the Battlesuit plat is "bobbing" on two tubes  Tongue

@pelya: New teleporters texture and script, watch it and tell me.

I have moved the plasmagun from the one floor to the upper one, for playability improvement.

Hi Akom! Nice work!

1) The pilots' room is nice.  Smiley I suppose it would be even better if you could place there a few more details, e.g. a door behind them and some kinds of controls (cloches/joysticks, or keyboards, or monitors...) in front of them. Maybe the seats may be a little "higher" at the cushions level...

2) The moving "Akom's platform" is nice, although now it is not necessary anymore to actually jump to reach the battle suit...

3) What about adding two more trust flames on the rear of the ship, next to the lateral edges (or mid-way towards them)?

4) I'm still not completely sure about the teleport, but now it's surely better than before.  Smiley

5) Maybe the two lateral aerodynamic sections of the front part of ship may have some more details and/or be more sharp-pointed in the lower part.

6) Maybe all the lower part of the ship should show some more details... considering you see it often enough while falling in the void, seeing a completely flat base isn't too nice.

7) Maybe you may add few small external windows along the lower "squared-ring" corridors. Just an idea.

P.S. Is it voluntary that the two ramps to reach the roof of the ship use different textures?

Okay, see the first screenshot attached: making the part "thinner" in height, possibly making also laterally (internal and external?) the detail you applied to the top part of it. You may even place some sort of "spike" in front, if you like. This may apply also to the central section (in front of the cockpit), if you wish.

Maybe you may even place a few lights there (and even laterally).

Take a look to the second image. However, I don't know if that would result very good, because, looking at the map again, I noticed the wall there is much more thick than I thought. However, if you wanna make a try anyway (keeping a backup of the map before doing that)...

PS: What about using the "new" OA logo for the moving platform? I mean, the thick one instead of the thin one? With a quick search, I've found \textures\cosmo_sfx\decal2.jpg in pak6-patch088.pk3, but there are probably more files including it around.

PPS: Found a small graphic glitch... spectate at the rear of the ship (from the rear), looking at the edges of the parapet. Do you see it? It affects both parts.

I've tested the updated oa_akomdm4.

The teleport is okay now.

The pilot cabin looks awesome, too bad you won't really see it in game (unless you fall).

So I propose to make the whole cockpit covered with glass, not just front window. Make some windows at the sides and at the back, make a glass roof.
big helicopter photo

You could put some powerup here, at the engine nose, so players will have more chances to see your awesome pilot cabin from the side window:


I like moving platform, it has one small bug - the battle suit powerup is not moving along with the platform, it hangs in the air. I suppose it's impossible to do anyway with OA map engine.

I have another idea about that platform, but I'm not sure if my idea is really better, so you can leave the platform as-is:

The rails are moved to the top, and there are two consoles sliding them, and the platform is hanging on the ropes from these consoles. Like this:
random crane photo
another random photo
That platform is used to lift heavy crates or passengers into the ship when it's landed.
Also, since it's hanging on ropes, it would not only move forward and back, as consoles move, but also swing in random directions, and be unstable and scary to jump onto, like this.

@Pelya:

I've been working on my other map, but while you checkout that one i will tackle your suggestions:
* Mega health: its just on the ground, so that people would have to come down (and in the open) to get it, it does make it less balanced and i like the idea of 2 megahealths, so i'll try that!
* The slopes should definitly go up up there, i allways play in a physics with rampjumps, so i did not notice it would be unreachable.
* I'll look into the maya, aztec, inca textures.


The next map i would like to contribute, called 'Aimless fury', is ready for alpha testing, i will test the gameplay tonight. It is an alpha and still on the todo list are: Aligning textures, making clusterportals, lighting up the underground section so that you can see enemies a bit clearer.

Try not to use flared shaders in patches. They slow down a lot the FPS in maps. I've learnt that the hard way in some maps.

Added oajgm2 to the Wiki, and updated oa_akomdm4, so every map of the pack should be updated at this point.

Tomorrow starts the first deadline, and I haven't even finished the maps I was working on. -.- Dammit!

Wouldn't call it like that so far. The outside of the ship could use some more than just geometric contrasts (like textural or even lighting) as I only look at the screenshot.
