My Second Map...

Post by A Meteorite » Mon Oct 31, 2005 5:03 am

I'm working on my second map now. It will be CTF Red vs. Green. It is somewhat reminiscent of Pillbox with some added goodies. :)

I have almost half the map hand coded. Once the first half is done, I will mirror it to the other side (when you hand code you have to take shortcuts). I would like to call it "Pillbox: Reloaded" but I don't know if the author of Pillbox (who made it anyways?) would like that...

Anyways, the basic reason I'm making this is for a Hepcat/Pillbox-style contest (no jumping, no flags, no rico, 3 shots - http://www.rangfar.com/hosted/bzflagwor ... .php?t=293 ). Despite my posts on there, it will be done by tomorrow. Hopefully I can post it here tomorrow and run it on my server. I would ask for suggestions on the name, but there's no screenshot... (it looks like Pillbox in a way - but is very different).

I also hope to make a second map tomorrow for two entries in the contest.

I took some screenshots... I'll edit this post in the morning/afternoon to show you what I got so far. :) (just here for a reminder)

OK, here are some pictures. I need name suggestions! (as Pillbox: Reloaded probably won't go over well ;) )

Please don't laugh; it's only my second map. :| (but do tell me what you think!)

The map is done! I'm not going to post any new screenshots now... I'll post it here via RPG's maptorium which will include new ones. (I've never distributed a map that way so it will be interesting to see) If you really want to see it, head over to the link in my first post and run it.

Please make comments here once it is posted through the maptorium.

Actually, I think Cosmos made this one...it was Overlord that Dutchrai made. And somebody else made babel. Anyway, an excellent map meteor! Only...it won't work on my computer for some reason.

A question, what flags will be allowed? 'cause it looks like a laser would rule.

I think it'll be nice to play on though, good work 'specially for a 1nd map. :)

It was originally designed for a Pillbox style contest so normally there would be no flags, but this map would also work well in "regular style bz" (flags, rico, jumping, etc.) A shot limit and long reload would be the way to go.

Me neither. :twisted:

I'll run it right now! (and start Hide 'n Seek tomorrow)

EDIT:
Totally forgot... ducatiwannabe can't run maps for some reason so I need to host the other contestant's map. It will run until DW tests it out then I will put mine back on.

ducatiwannabe is right. Dutchrai didn't make pillbox. He only made the Overlord map. I know the maker of the pillbox map, however, I cannot recall his callsign at this moment.
Beware! I'm going to clone myself and spread those clones all over the world!
