Hello, I have an idea for a UT99 MapPack.

I think it would be a good idea for some talented mappers to gather together and make a 1on1 mappack. Why? Because I know there are some people who like playing 1on1, or like LAN but dont have alot of computers so need smaller maps. The maps would obviously have to be good or wouldnt be accepted into the map. It could work like this: anybody can submit a map but if it doesnt follow some guidelines then its rejected.

When I say 1on1 I don't only mean deathmatch, they could also be CTF or Domination. The maps could also be made so they can fit up to 4 players without being too tight.

The maps should be able to work on older computers and be commercial quality. The newly released HourPitores texture pack could be put to good use here.

So whos with me?

And exactly how does this inspire me to map out something?

I don't know! But I think it would be pretty sweet!

There have been two 1on1 mapapcks already DM-1on1-ORM-Mappack (http://nalicity.beyondunreal.com/map_hub.php?mid=6028) and DM-1on1-Pack (http://nalicity.beyondunreal.com/map_hub.php?mid=1695) . I would check these out if you haven't already. They should satisfy your needs for 1on1 deathmatch. ;)

I think the most obvious question to ask would be *if* you can map.

... 1on 1 CTF, and DOM? Hmmmm... no. Fine by DM, but good DM maps are hard to make: they have to be perfect in layout, and preferably also in visuals - all that is hard to come by, that so that is rare you can point out a good 1on1 map released anytime soon (past or present). The scale matters too...


... really, if you can't map or if you can but don't have the expertize to make good DM or 1on1 maps, then it's better to forget about it, even though your intention is good :) . The UP contests (in case you referer them) aren't going anywhere in that matter. They lack some "vision", even though there's a few good mappers involved...

Well, an example of some good one on one CTF and DOM maps are the tutorials.

... organization first and foremost. We need objectives/standarts/purposes to aim for, and an estimated deadline to keep it cohesively working and the community interested. Parameters should be discussed...

... i'm sorry for any lack of comm, but until the end of July (at least), i'm internet-handicapped (no connection)... my interest in this pack remains, as long as the mappage has some degree of quality :) ...
