My New Map - Anyone Want To Help?

Post by Lt-Kirby2007 » Mon Aug 27, 2007 5:23 pm

My Map

Hello to you all lol. I haven't left a comment on the forums so heres my first in about a month (just so you lot didn't think I had left you all lol).

Basically I have come up with (what I like to think of as) a pretty good idea for a map. I seem to have had alot of support for the idea, but I sadly lack the some what neccassary skills to make it. I have looked on google for tutorials on map making but sadly I am imensly bad at some of the things I need to be done in this map.

Some of you may remember Kirbys Slaughter Houses, that prooved a reasonable success for a brief period but I removed it because I was having trouble with a few of the teleporters for some reason and also some extra map settings (that I wont go into detail about)...

Anyway my new map will be called "SNOW PATROL - By Lt-Kirby2007 & *whoever helps make it*".



Are you still interested????

If you're reading this then you must still be interested or just curious of my idea. First ask yourself these questions (all are needed if you are going to be able to make my idea for a map)

1. Can you make trees?
2. Can you make the ground look like snow?
3. Can you make ice on the ground that looks like a frozen river?
4. Can you make world weapons on the ground?
5. Can you make textured items such as wooden boxes and metal walls?
6. Can you apply plugins such as the destroyed flaming tank?
7. Can you create hills?




Can you do all of that?

If you can still do all of that, and are still interested in my idea, then please pm me (which I will definatly reply to) or leave a post here (which may get a delayed reply).



I have already created a rough sketch of my idea in bzedit, with detailed instructions on what I want to be done. I am willing to make a few changes or additions of wanted.



Thankyou

You can find out how to do most of that stuff all on one very obvious website: The bzflag wiki.

But... "the destroyed flaming tank" is not a plugin. :|

the wiki is called on so much, maybe a link should be added above, right next to the search button.

gah sorry, i forgot i even wrote this post. Thankyou for all your offers via this post and via pming me. No help is needed anymore as I have found a person (whos identity will remain a secret until the map is released). The map should be ready in around 2 weeks as there is alot to do - but i promise you all, it will be very good.

Yeah, because that's such a complex name. That deserves credit. And maybe a quarter too.

Well, yeah, clearly. He's contributed almost as much to the map as Kirby! :roll:

like everyones saying is if you really wanted you could make this map easy with the bz wiki information. It would be easier for us all if you learned to map yourself
