    *now jump* ;)

    I don't remember the name of the player I met some days ago while playing online but he lives or lived near Mostar for 'some' years and stated that it looks a 'bit' different. :)
    Even with the best photos and blueprints you can only make it look similar for those that were or are still living there.
    This doesn't mean that those maps like Mostar are bad... no they are brilliant, but they are still 'just' a copy of the original mixed up with designs the mapper comes up with. Again, cool stuff.

    Agreed.

    Good mapping on the UT engine (like Mostar, etc) is like Impressionist painting -- sure, none of the brushes/brush strokes look like real things, but taken as a whole they really evoke the feeling of a place...

    Not only GreatInn-Lite, but also gatehouse (with less players this should be funny). :)
    Btw. what is with some of AH's maps? I guess LV426 would be funny - ok very hard, but funny - or Swamprat ...?
    There are really many maps out worth a conversion does anyone rembember Silver Ibex's TigerHunt (2) e.g.? :)

    PS.: OK, there are some maps named after the location which they are based on (no they have the name of the mappers grandmother :eek: ), but most maps out there don't look similar to their roots. (FM your map looks similar ;) - he showed some pictures of it - didn't you also say that some/one of the buildings will be pull down?).

    you can start EASing...
    i would love to see many many many 2.86 maps. all the officials maps , plus some customs (aH maps like Swamprat, Murkwood, Sunset express, Realthing, Realmanor, plus others like containing criminals, china, office...list goes on)

    Many of AH maps are too small for EAS. Maybe DasBoot could be good though :)

    I agree, 2.9 maps kick ass.
    Mostar looks and feels awesome.
    2.9 maps can ( and should ) compete with any commercial production out there. For all these talented mappers i guess UT's engine was like the starting ground. With better engines coming along ( and better editors ) they'll be able to pull off things they dreamt about in the past.
    When inf hits ut2k4 we'll get some more asswhooping maps i bet!

    noooo!! that map is teh EVIL bottleneck !!

    hehe, but serious now; containing criminals may look good (cough) but it's a map with only one route! You guys heard that? ONE route. Need i say more?

    if you reverse the map. and put the atacker spawn near the "evil chokepoint" and put the objective in the other side of the map it should be ok , fights would occure in another area, where theire is more than 1 way ;)

    Maybe I try it, but first only private conversions, because I do not want to ask anyone if I can converte his/her map(s) and then producing pure **** out of them. :D

    Contaminated would be also nice, I think it would be better than ContainingCriminals.

    Yes you're right. Dosn't look as Avignon. A map In the palais de Papes would be great ! :D (Sniping from the rocher des dons, chasing in the old underground water complex etc.. )

    I think that no map is too small for EAS. With the right teamwork and spawn placage it should run smooth.
