View Full Version : Posting 3rd Party Maps?

6th Oct 2005, 08:27 PM
Hey guys (FluXs may remember me from way back looking for that AWOL D-Code for the AirFight2kX mod),

I will be making at least a few maps for DA2...while I have the facilities to host them (personal webserver, NaliCity, *coughFilePlanetcough* etc.), I had a few questions:

If a fan map is awesome enough, will you guys link to it on your site?
Will additional high-quality fanmaps be included in future betas?
Is it a wise idea to make maps with the as-yet-unreleased vehicles in mind?
Will there be a forum section for user content?
Do you guys have any idea as to how many DA2 fanmappers are out there?

Thanks guys. I'm downloading the mod tomorrow.

1) Of course
2) Of course!
3) Not a problem but vehicles will NOT exist in 1.1
4) We can arrange that
5) Nope not yet as the mod has only been out at FilePlanet

What about tutorials for mapping DA2?

I converted DM-Blackhawk for fun and the bots/spawning are giving me troubles.

Edit: sup Crash24, been awhile.

A mapping tutorial would be very interesting. I can't commit to anything, but I may have interest in writing one.

Waitaminute...you're not Mosquito, are you? :eek: :D
Crash24 promises to never tell the Infiltration mods nothin'

Hi crash!

WOAH, you do not know how much this pleases me, to hear people already want to start making fan maps! :D :D :D

I/we/absolut started making a mapping guide but it took back burner. TBH, i am going to be busy working on maps, otherwise I would love to create the mapping guide...

the best advice is for now (until the mapping guide is done) is to open up the maps and check them out, we can answer any of your questions and ill get ahold of BU to add a mapping section later,

it seems pretty straight forward.

It is, but the DA2 code is designed to be very flexible to allow mappers to create different types of gameplay (though beta 1.0 we kept the theme the same) :)

We're actually have plans to create a manual for mappers. I'm not sure how long it will take - so maybe one of our mappers is willing to do a short tutorial *hint hint* :D

If you can make AS maps then you wont have any problems with making an DA map! Objectives, playerstarts, works exactly the same.
