Hi everyone.

I'm here to give you the Beta Version of the tribute map to the Ruins Of Sarnath map from Quake Champions.

Here some screenshot:

From the Editor:



In Game screenshots:












I know there are some little light issues, and i dont know if the textures are ok... punched

By the way, you are free to download the PK3 from the following Link:

Code:
https://app.box.com/s/u5lfph9jwkh5uubqwjs6nnl73rjsuj03
(WARNING! 80 Mb of download, copy and paste in the browser)

I hope you enjoy my work and tell me what do you think about the map.

Oooh, fancy. Ok, disclaimer first: I played a grand total of 30 minutes of Quake Champions and I am not familiar with this map at all.
So here are my thoughts with this map in a vacuum:

I like the Agyptian texture set a lot. I don't know how close you're staying to the original map geometry - maybe you can play up the theme with pillars/support beams etc to make the textures fit the architecture even more. Example: the thin catwalks should be wood or metal or something. If you want them made of stone, they should be thick and have support beams/arches underneath?

Items: again, no idea how the original is layed out. 1 - 2 RLs and a RA seem like a good idea (I assume RL is intended as there's ammo for it). Not a fan of holdable items - the teleporter item seems in a central spot, maybe a good location for a major item like RA?

MH room seems large and empty, maybe that's a good location for trying out your own Egyptian-themed support architecture?

Thank you for feedback Smiley

However, the egyptian theme is temporary and i'm not sure to maintain it. Maybe a few textures will be changed.

Know bugs are: some lights need to be fixed and the map need more items...

...this is just a first look version.

...maybe the scale of the map it's not the best, i think the map need room a little larger...

There's no need for a 1-to-1 exact remake since there's already the original, so adapting the map to the Q3/OA gameplay is the better choice.

As for holdables, I don't know, as long as it doesn't create major problems with the map's balance, I don't see why it should be removed.

I will try it in the next days.

@PigCell, If you like egyptian theme, you should like oacmpdm3, right?  Smiley

Tried.
GREAT!!!!!!  Smiley Smiley Smiley

As one may expect in a map from Akom, it looks nice and plays well*.
Also the texture set seems quite fitting to me (although the QC map has got vegetation and musk... I see a place named Sarnath, in real world, is in India https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarnath).

A few minor notes (see attached screenshots):
- Fist screeenshot: I don't like that you exit the teleporter and bump against that small column that holds the shotgun.
- Maybe those small bonuses look a bit too near each other?
- Maybe that platform is a bit too thin? Uhm, it looks like it's like that also in the QC map (here's a video of the map, as a reference also for who has not got QC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RP0wP-vBeqM)

PS: Akom, should I assume you finally got a 64bit OS and actually got to play QC?

* Okay, this time he followed a gameplay layout created by someone else...

- Fist sceenshot: What about making the sky higher, there, to make it less probable to bump your head in case of rocket jump from the top platform?
- Second screenshot: What about some kind of bonus on the right, and a "rounded" ending of the room like in the original?

I gave it a quick try

The green flames look nice for the light they cast, could use a bigger radius (while compensating it with some shadows)

Including the _lit and _norm tgas witht he map isn't necessary as the engine can't use them and doesn't plan to use them (those are named/processed for Darkplaces in mind)

That was a trited theme. I think egyptian textures went well. Just bear fromhell's advice in mind about the *_lit.* and *_norm.* textures.

I like the egyptian theme better.  I've grown tired of seeing evillair gothic textures for being too dark, gray, low resolution and noisy (and being associated with Nexuiz maps doesn't help either)

The new texturing is still ok, however also I liked the previos theme (as long as you can keep it without 80 mb pk3)...

Wow looks really nice ... I see alot Quake Champion influence parts  punched am I wrong?
But however as metioned before awesome I like it.  Kiss

Some stuff I would like to see: The map is perfect ... I mean too perfect.
Try to modify some elements to be odd, sample make some pillar broken, smashed down into the wall and leave damage to the wall bricks.

It would make the map more extra ordinary and it looks more authentically. giggity

In case you like the idea but not sure how it can look like I can provide to make a sample map.  Wink

As i wrote in the first Post, this map is a tribute map to the Ruins Of Sarnath map from Quake Champions.
