JB-Egypt

Please not the work in prgress title - map is pre-alpha, been working on it for about 2-3 hours at the most.

Ok the Pics so far:







So far its essentially empty. But once it is semi playable I'l put out an alpha release for you to take a look around. I'l aim to do this by the end of the week. (would be sooner if it was for damn exam revision)

Any feedback please post.

Looks nice so far
From the pics it looks it's not that big and has no complicated layout. Let's keep it that way.
Just make sure the escape is not too easy.

erm :P

Its bigger than it looks. It is sort of scaled up. To put it into perspective that picture of anubis sitting down, he is 768 uu's high. approimatly 8 times the height of you. Its not a highly complex route though. The escape route I have only tried on my own in the map so far. You cannot make it without a beserk combo shieldjumop. But with a ladder on 3/4 players you should be able to get get out with a Shieldjump. Working on getting the difficulty on the escape will come later though.
There is around 4/5 routes to get from one switch to the other. But it is set up so they overlap so it is easy to defend.
As I said though this is still in its early stages, but I'm on a role today, (first bit of mapping for over 3 months aswell )

2 more pics:





(I'm gonna attempt to put up some half decent pics every post I make in this thread )

The reason I mention it was because I think JB-Tomb was just too big (and lacks optimizing in the bases).
The layout of JB-Templar(-beta) was a bit ... ehhh ... strange?

In my defense JB-Templar was my first jb map... and it would seem that the map is destined to get more complicated as time goes on. My clan kept telling me that it needed more routes to the locks, so I put them in and now it's a convoluted mess of sorts.

But hey, that's how we learn right?

If that's only a few hours of work then you must work WAY faster than I do. It takes me that long just to decide on a basic layout. Nevermind any lighting or textures at that point.

So far its about 10 hours work. (I got bored of revising.....)
The reason I have put it together so quickly is that I knew how I was going to do the layout ages ago. Its very similar to another map I made but gave up on due to optimisation problems (CTF-Equilibrium) - It only got released as a beta.
I layed it out similarly to that one and the 10 hours were spent litrally making it.

I just took a look at Templar, interesting layout... I got completely lost even with the map. But for a first effort at mapping I have seen much worse. GL with finishing it.

For reference on the shield gun escape, it's going to have to be around 900uu high to stop people getting out without help from their teammates. (More specific numbers: with 100 health I can quite happily climb a 832uu wall, but not 896uu.)

I can get up a 896 loosing about 60 life.
The actual jump to get out from top to bottom is 1024uu

I Have a problem at the moment. For some reason when I open up UT2004 and select the map and press play it wont open. It just reloads the map choice page :s
Hopefully I can fix it

/edit:
Problem solved. I hadn't saved a texture pack I was using. I didn't realise this was the prob at first as I would expect that problem to just replace the textures with others.
Will all be in the mylevel package when done though.

That's with berserk isn't it (or have I got my numbers wrong)? I meant without berserk, so you can't get out "freely".

896 is without Beserk combo.
I can get over 2500 with beserk combo. (and lots of life - haven't counted how much)

2 pics to show how much I need to work on the lighting

Looks good!
I like the Egypt theme

And an escape route too! We don't have enough of those.

The curved staircases look too brush-shaped. I think you should replace them by jumpads. Pads will look better and you'll have less polys. Also, taking a jumpad to jump up quickly will make the game faster and more fun...

If you mean in the centre of the map (2nd pic in my last post) I could consider that.
By the jails though it would make it too easy to get to the switch. I need it to be more tricky to get up there.
Also Stairs like that fit into the theme imo.

By the way head, before I start to beta test this, I want to say that I think JB - Egypt is a fine name for this map. I personally would not like to see it changed.
