When I said "WANT :D", I meant that would be a nice looking sun to have in the actual game.

After roaming it for a bit, it *looks* amazing, but I don't really see it being playable. Its just a bunch of random different objects thrown together. Construction site? Volcano? Nuclear Power PLant thingy? Its really random.
Soon we will be facing bots that we can't beat...

Thats whats special to it, it's a giant toally random map with many places to explore.
All submissions look very excellent so far!
I'm very excited about how it will turn out. :)

The previous two collaborators were very playable, and are very fun when they are popular. This one should be fun when it is completed as well!:)

Here's mine. Hopefully this doesn't double the overall map file size.

looks nice const, however I think the positions are kinda off...why is it outside of the map area? Im not sure how this will work in grouping

Looks nice const.

MDSKPR: Looks fine here. No need to adjust the positions

Mine is now finished. And professionally 4 days late. Here you guys go, hope you enjoy! I spent about 3 hours on it, and it turned out pretty well. My two separated spots actually "link up" to each other via speeding. If that makes sense. I thought my idea was pretty neat! So here you go, sigonasr2 is finally done!

Mine is already set up in the correct areas. My map is NOT grouped because it is not necessary since I based it on the given coordinates. If you are going to change them, be aware there are also zones you will have to move manually, since those can't be grouped. All materials, teleporters, and physics driver names have the sig_ prefix to differentiate between mine, so there should be no mixups.

If you look at the layout image, you'll see that my squares lay outside the standard 800x800 map size. If you join mrapple's test server, you'll see how that works.

just to make clear --- on the final hosting each peace will have it's own server variables, right?

And will there be some kind of billboard with the plan and author's names on each part? Or maybe a plugin which provides a command to look the author of the part player currently on.

There's not really a "good" way of doing that (there is a hackish way, but I'm sure that screws some stuff up somewhere..).

The entire map will have the same variables. Meaning no changing jumpVelocity, gravity, etc.

And what about noclimb? Please, allow climbing. Can't imagine that volcano (and several other places) without it.

As the mapmakers, we will eventually have to agree on some settings.

I think _noClimb 0 would be acceptable.

MDSKPR: your submission has been added to the test server.

Map updated: (EDIT: http://s.bzextreme.com/98306792)

Sigonasr2: I slightly modified your section in different parts to work better with other sections. Hope this is OK.

I suggest _maxFlagGrabs 0 also so that owners that placed flag zones keep their flags inside their zones with unintentional random flags outside. (Specifically, that GM that is now on the floor instead of up there where it was meant to be.)

mrapple: I see how you modified it. One thing though, I intentionally had it so only the outside of the warning blocks of doom would kill you, not when you were on the inside. Can you fix that again? That was kind of a design factor.

I scaled it by .9 .9 .9 because it was edging onto the other sections and was impossible to pass between them.

One thing that probably should have been mentioned before (I saw Constitution did this by himself) everyone's sections should be a few units inside the absolute borders.

This way it is easy for tanks to pass between the sections and get where they want to go with ease.

the z-axis scaling messes up some of it, could you change it to +1 instead of .9? Thanks in advance

It was already mentioned somewhere that there should be a padding of several units between map blocks. But mrapple, why are you changing people's submissions? Instead, can we please mention it in this topic (or the other one) and allow people to make necessary changes themselves, so they still have control over what their section looks like? Thanks.

Edit: alternatively, we could decide upon any final changes that need to be made when the time comes to put everything together. If mrapple needs to do certain things to the map to get up what we have now, I see no problem as long as we recognize that any final changes will have to be determined later by each block author.

Sorry if I extremley changed anyone's section incorrectly (oops!).

I thought just scaling it would do the trick, guess not in some cases.

Once the final map is done and decided on, it will probably be a good idea for everyone to "test" out their sections and make sure everything is correct. Maybe even add in some more padding ;)

Anyways, It's coming along nicely and I hope it finishes up soon! :)
