3 Tanks.

Post by Agent West » Sat Oct 17, 2009 8:12 am

As some of you may know, i took over the "4 tanks" project. Later, it was decided to make it in "3 tanks". so here is the map (finished/ tested on private server).

glad to see this got done! awesome job Agent West!

up at bzbureau.com:5179

-edit-

Are you sure you tested the blue and green bases? once I drive off the actual base, you can't move. Ive left the map up for now just incase it was maybe a problem with my client (doubt it)

But you might want to test/fix that :)

all 3 bases were tested.
it did happend before that a map was perfect in private server, and glitchy in public. this might be the case here.
i used "spin" to rotate the tanks, just like it was done in the original 2 Tanks, so i don't see why it's doing that here.
thanks for hosting!

Hope you get it fixed soon, when I played you couldn't even drive on any of the three tanks :( . When you do get it fixed, I'd love to play on it.


See you soon,

Happens on green and blue bases.

The middle thing is silly, it's very hard to climb without WG. The sides of your base tank aren't at all safe, but under is, both of which are the opposite of the better way round on two tanks. I don't like the texture.

The pyramids are good, though the gameplay it is good for isn't likely.

I've had trouble with tanks sticking to a rotated group before. You might try rotating the group the opposite way, like if it's currently rotated 120 degrees, try -240.

At least that's how I fixed my maps with this problem.

Two Tanks is my absolute favorite map. EVER. It's a personal goal to be the #1 ranked player there one day. If it spawned off of two tanks there is no room for failure. Good Luck, hope to see it out on the server list soon!

Brilliant changes, but I think the flying time is too short, the teles above the turrets should be very near the others in the middle. Also, there are too many laser flags on the ground, at least thats the way two tanks is (none on ground).

The team flags are again hanging in mid air. Strange!

Thanks AW

spawn zones for team flags are "size 1 1 1" over the centers of bases.

I'm havibg same problem with GM flags in the "two bombers" (work in progress) that Mudsquisher wanted so much. In this one, flags don't spawn in a "shaft", but hower at the top of it.

in both cases, as far as i know, flags are pick-up-able, and -fb is enabled.

Just a quick update to this great map.

Added the CF/Alice D billboards behind the bases and around the edges of the map and fixed a few minor bugs.
