Hey guys, thought I'd post a few early shots of the map I've been working on. Let me know what you guys think, but keep in mind these are very early, and there's always plenty of room for improvement :)

Looks good ;)

hey looking cool.

As a pointer, im gonna be moving the focus of map gameplay from all of it almost set outdoor to 50% indoor 50% outdoor. So the first part is set outside then the attackers move into the structure for combat.

As if its going to be pvp and I was attacking. I wouldnt like to be fighting 90% of the map outside, also seeing as we wont be having vehicles in this build. Outdoors will be pretty hard for the attackers without vehicle armour.

Looks good, spectrum. You can use any of the bunkers BSPs I created in the island map and that goes for any one else, as i would like to have a 'theme' design going on through the Alliance bases.

In that 2nd picture, the base you have there, i would say keep that as the entrance area/main fort. I like the raised platforms too, as its giving some Z axis fighting, with the Alliance above and the attackers comming in below them. The red looks cool, make sure the base uses orange coloured lights too. Also the map gives me the feel the enviroment is hostile. So maybe the fort on the surface should look "rusted" and not friendly... like not many people come up here. The real base is underground where the conditons are better. And inside the base underground use brighter coloured lights like whites and yellows.

What would be cool is if there is no atmosphere on this planet :) no air, so everyone is wearing breathing kits, Like on Doom3 when he goes outside. All that happens is, you start hearing your breathing. That was a really cool effect, and for me it made it feel like there was no air. Then when you leave the underground base to the surface, you will feel you are steping onto an alien world.

It could be done with a special zone, where once inside, your hearning is lowered and you can hear your breathing. I think this could be fun, specially if you add slightly lower gravity. The Alliance soliders have a mask anyway dont forget, also it could be used in space maps too. :D

This map reminds me on a movie ... but can't remember the name.
Dosn't matter the screens are looking nice.
Also good ideas by fluxx,

did you got the shadow script ?
I ve read somewhere that there is a free script to create real time shadows, don't know wheter they are as good as in doom, but it would be a nice feature.

Realtime Shadows (http://wiki.beyondunreal.com/wiki/SquirrelZero/RealtimeShadows)

Thanks guys. Right now the structures in place were mostly for me to plan out the terrain. Once the terrain is finished, they will get the detail to make them really stand out. Also, I'm also building an underground system between bunkers and what not, so like fluxs has said, not all of the fighting will be outside, however, when vehicles are implented, I figured I'd plan for that while making my maps, so that they can be added later without having to really change the map much :)

only one word sweet dude

:D I'll be posting more screenshots periodically as the map grows, glad you guys are liking it so far...

13th Nov 2004, 11:56 PM
Niceties :) Keep it up....

Yes i read about the shadow thing, i even downloaded it a while back, but i dont have the coding fingers to add it into DA2, the main reason is that the mutators list is disabled in DA2, so i couldnt even quickly add it... Maybe we can add this?


I still think the no atmosphere idea in general rocks as it can also let us do space maps. like parts of a ship are decompressed or a planet doesnt have an atmosphere.

2nd Dec 2004, 10:54 PM
Ok, finally some new screenshots

Way too much red and fog

3rd Dec 2004, 08:28 AM
it's a red desolete chaotic planet, what do you expect? pretty bright colors?

3rd Dec 2004, 12:51 PM
spec_x thats sweet m8 fog looks great will slow down snipers a bit but thats only a good thing

3rd Dec 2004, 02:28 PM
I think it looks great, need some sort of moody thing to it. The red adds a sense of danger / excitement / anger :)

3rd Dec 2004, 03:16 PM
It will be optimized, in-game it looks and acts better than on screenshots

I expect something natural (brighter more orangey red). Something that doesn't affect playablity. Something not ugly.

lol, tow you're great, it's actually a lot better ingame, things are still being tweaked, the screenshots mostly look bad because of where in the map I took them and the angle they're at. I'll get some better shots at some point. Really it doesn't affect playability at all as the fog distance is actually quite large when you're actually playing, it's just hard to tell in those images :)

(brighter more orangey red)

And yellow :)

6th Dec 2004, 10:37 AM
Well I've made a lot of changes, mostly to the inside of the structures, so new shots soon most likely

6th Dec 2004, 11:45 AM
cool keep up the goood wrk

13th Dec 2004, 11:33 PM
some quick new shots, haven't had much time to really work on the map unfortunately, but it's getting there

14th Dec 2004, 10:31 AM
lol that third shot reminds me to DA-area51, wich i made a long time ago.. the map sucked though cos it had a bad tactical setup. this looks great though, nice to see some variation by using some indoor.

14th Dec 2004, 12:52 PM
lol yep it does looks sweet though
