    It was actually inspired by an old Unreal1 map (who's name escapes me atm), which was, in turn, inspired by Quake 1. :)


    *Edit* That map was DM-Sanctum for all you old timers here ;)

    I had an effect in mind for the cameras. I didn't want to use a TV-style mesh or whatever. It's all been done before so I figured I'd try projecting an image onto an emitter (a bit like shining a light onto the surface of a waterfall) and, with thanks to Jrubzjeknf for finding a Wiki link, I've done it :)

    WIP of course :)

    I would have expected the dolmens to be actually jail "doors". Don't you fear traffic-jams & telefrags with only one exit ?

    Well, it's now a playable Jailbreak map. But, yikes, there's a lot of rough edges to smooth :)

    Looking awesome! :tup:
    Are 200FPS considered good nowadays? :p Looks like a good sign for me... :)
    /expects +30FPS \o/

    Played a bit the VCTF alpha, but I'll wait to see the new one to post anything... :D

    Human eyes can't even see that. 24fps is good enough, that's why they use it for cinema.

    Not strictly speaking true Tarq. Sorry, can't remember exactly why, something about the way that computer images are displayed as opposed to films.

    Anyways, the framerates are comparable to Crusher3 overall at the moment with 8 bots.

    That's true tarq, but the problem is if you can achieve reasonable frame rates with 5 v 5, and then it gets played 8 v 8 and a redeemer goes off with 6 rockets on the screen, your computer dies. Well, not really, but having a nice FPS buffer I've found to be very helpful, I didn't realize it was important until last year when I got a new computer and games just started being so much more fluid and easier to play.

    An arena. You may have noticed there's now 3 different skyboxes in this map :rockon:

    Things to to:
    Redo the release portals.
    Add cameras.
    Make the executions.
    Optimise.
    Generally tidy up the crappy bits.
    Optimise more.
    Redo pickup positions.
    Lighting stuff.
    etc etc
