It's my newest map, its red vs green ctf.
OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS
-3 shots
-2 team ctf
-Jumping
-rico

and for fun, i added ramps going to the other teams base, I still havent added the code to make it work yet, but i'm sure you'll know where the ramp is... unless your not so smart. :wink:
as you can see, I haven't gotten to working on the middle yet.


p.s. what do you think I should call it?

Hmm, suggestions...

How about some stopping points on the side ramps.
I hate maps where you hop on those things and it just shoots you all the way across with no control over your tank.

And how about maybe a circular castle in the middle. Nothing too fancy, maybe just a couple of simple floors and then you can bridge the map out from the middle castle.

Just an idea, hate it or love it :)

ya, I was gonna do that, I hate it too when you just get thrown across. If you have ever been to bloodbath, I'm gonna try and make it like that ramp... :D

Does anyone know how to make something "one way"

Meshes. Take a good read on the wiki, and look through some of the Mapping Help Topics, because they are a bit weird.

Post by Easy Target » Thu Jan 31, 2008 4:50 am

I've made a few updates, I still havent added all of the textures in yet, but i'm trying... I've just been pretty busy lately with other stuff... here are the screenies. also havent added the flags in yet so be patient

I've added they physics to the rails to speed tank up.
Added hand made meshes to make it a lot harder to get to geno flag.

I was thinking of maybe the following flags:
-Laser
-Gm
-Geno
-Sw-
-sb
-Narrow
-Cl
-St
-SE
Those are the ones that come to mind at the moment, I'll have to test it again with bots and the flags to see which others, if any i want to add.

haha, that seems like a possibility... or maybe something that wouldn't deter other people besides noobs from coming to the map. :wink:

On the contrary, no one at all would play there. Experienced players don't want to deal with noobs. And really, what 'real' noob is going to admit that they are one?

Here are some name ideas:
Gastric Feather-Duster
Feline Hemorrhage
Pancake Skirmish
Helium
Lacquer Attack

Helium would be a great name if gravity were set to a positive number :P

Maybe you should first have the map with lasers, and if it is a problem, gone.
Gastric Feather-Duster
Feline Hemorrhage
Pancake Skirmish
Helium
Lacquer Attack
I was personally thinking something along the lines of:
Gee Wilikers!
Purple Lasagna!

Nice map...

Too bad this idea from wiki has not been implemented (as far as I know):
Ability to turn off ricochet for laser flag but allow ricochet for bullets...

I would say just keep rico on for everything. If there is CL it would be fine.
