Antarctica

Post by Amaterasu » Thu May 14, 2009 7:08 pm

Hi there!

Here's my latest and best map:
It's a two team CTF sniper map.
There are sniper spots, but also many possibilities for other playstiles!
It's in a ice world and the whole thing is over a see of icy water.
You can either fight from the buildings or go into the water.
There are these flags:
L WG PZ V A SW SH OO SB MG N T TH US ID GM ST MQ CL
There are some physics and I textured the whole map.
To stop spawnkilling I added some World Weapons which trigger on teamflag capture and clean all possible spawnkilling spots.
I'm open for recommendations!

Here are lots of screens:

Server comes later...

greetings Amaterasu

That looks amazing. I couldn't see much because of the huge pictures, but from what I saw, you put an amazing amount of work into it. I would love to play on it, but only after my internet stops acting up. Amazing!

WOW! Now that I have seen all of the pics, I can say that you awe me!!! I don't have words to describe how awesome that is!!! (Well, I do, but I would rather not say them, they might offend someone) You are great at the texturing! Great, Amazing, Awesome, Fantastic, Incredible, and Fantroobyalistic job!

Wow thanks for all the honor! :D
When I made the map I didn't think anybody would find it so spectacular.
Well, I'd like to play with you guys on my map but since my textures on the BZFlag Image Uploader still aren't approved, I can't host it.... :x
I just hope they'll check them soon :?
Until then, does anybody have a name for the map?
I'm really bad at naming things so....

Well see you! Amaterasu

Sea of Ice? Icy Plain? Ice Castle? Somthing with ice in it, I would think.

I like this map, it looks really good.

How about "ice blast" or "frost castle" or "frost battle" or "antarctica"
Ahm besides: How long does it usually take the admins til they accept a texture?

It seems like the teles don't work right now. Also it is very hard to get back up to anywhere but the iceberg things once you go "underwater".

Ok I made an update and there are more ways to get on the bases now.
I added a roof to the bases, to stop the endless spawnkilling.
Also there's a hidden spot for hiding the team flag.
I also fixed the problem with Spawning on top of the map.
About the teles: I really don't know why they sometimes don't work.
But the teles on the ground aren't supposed to work. They're for PZ users.
So have fun! ;)

Why did you take the jump pad away? It was what made the map fun!

You have to go throught the wall in front of your base...

Sorry about that... What I meant was the jump pads are a bit harder to get to than they used to be. I just think an inexperienced player might not be able to get up there :roll:

ah well yes. I sometimes have problems by myself too..
I'll think about a solution for this problem.
That and some other problems will be fixed in the version 1.4
