UPDATE 0.7 (Nov-2-04):
Ok, I made this version of yav1 for download:

INCLUDES:
2 atsts
3 xwings
2 tiefighters
2 combatspeeders
2 speederbikes

- most of the trees are gone for easy fly
- balanced spawn points
- NOTE: flyers will not respawn once you die

TODO:
* more work needed to remove blockade or to move vehicles out of the temple
- this version still uses map swaping technique (yav1 as tat1)
* need to make it to work without swapping

DOWNLOAD:

http://www.eline.ba/swbf

INSTRUCTIONS:

*back up your yav1 and tat1 lvls
*no need to patch mission.lvl

- Download above, and patch your original yav1.lvl
- Copy patched yav1.lvl to TAT folder
- Delete original tat1.lvl (or rename it eg. tat1.lvl.org)
- Rename yav1.lvl (in TAT folder) to tat1.lvl

Fire up SWBF
In instant action manu choose TATOOINE: DUNE SEA (Galactic civil war), which will actualy load patched yav1.

Enjoy.

PS. I would realy appriciate help on above issues.

Hey looks like fun , im doing the same things with tattooine , good times :).

i was thinking once we get models in game we should get a few of us together and do an all_fly_whatver we make competition and call it flying beasts.

Teams will make a flying vehicle model with up to 5 guns from the games current choises (no atat gun or lightsaber damage) that will spawn on each factions side and all other spawn points will be wiped. We will compete with each others flying forces only and there will be limits on damage and amount/types of guns on our flying beasts.

Could be loads of fun , well run it on dedicated servers and allow different teams to load up their own models for the competition.

Ive seen similar ideas but with this engine it would be a hoot!

That is what I am looking for. Naboo would be good map for this or maybe Bespin with just 2 huge (with no connection) platforms for shipd to take of and nothing else just ships. People would have to fly since they could not do anything else.

I dont know anything about modeling though, I am just playing around with Hex.

Thax for response Guru.

PS What do you think about idea to kindly ask Pandemic to give us a patch where we could load are "new" mods without hacking theirs or maybe to ask them for some source code of some levels (not the engine itself), so we can find compiler to compile our mods (I guess in the beggining would be Copy/Paste their code with some modifications)...

i think it would be ccol to give the IMPs and the Alliance their own versions of the LAAT, like the Imps a Sentinel Class Landing Craft, and the Alliance the Lambda Shuttle. Im not sure how it would be done, but I think that we could do it with just a liitle code editing, like deleting the Y-Wing and Tie Bomber, and replace them different models and code. Also, is there any way to use the LAAT to ferry troops around the battlfield? I can get the troops in , but not out, and that dissapoints me. Does anyone know ow to make troops exit the LAAT?

Great job on that map. I actually wouldn't mind having x-wings and ties on the regular yavin map with all the trees though.

Grass is fine, but with trees you can not do much since you cant see what is happening there.

I have a problem with this map which I didnt mention. Xwings which spawn in the main buiding can not get out. Entrence is too small so AI just crash in the wals (which is kinda funny). If anybody know how to make entence bit higher.

Great job, Nice map. I'm having my way with the CIS on Kashyyyink( correct me if I spelled it wrong) with jedi star fighters.... Now thats a ship that needs an upgrade :cool: .

I think F3 is the 'get out' order.. one of the function keys anyway.

In the tutorial I'm making, I have jedifighters in the temple. You can get them out (with a few scrapes), but the AI still slams them into the wall. :p I'm going to try removing the wall.

Please try to remove this wall. As you have seen in my Yav1, I removed all trees too, to give room to xwings to fly around.

Well, Yav1 map is almost finished.

This mini_mod will include:
1. 2 atst
2. 1 xwing
3. 1 tiefighter
4. 1 combatspeeder
5. 1 speederbike

and

only 1 spawn points for each team, plus one nutreal for first team to get to (in the middle) - Kings own recipe from gametost,

and

most of the tress/grass is gone (so ships can fly aroung, no flying bounderies also).

TWO THINGS REMAINING:

1. How to remove stupid enterence blockade so xwing and combat speeder can get out (check out link below),

2. This is actualy replacement for Tat1 map (did not figure out how to add ships that does not belong to the level in the first place), so there is work on actual level loading ....

Here is screenshot from last build:

That piece thats in your way isn't a part of the building in model code, you can go in and replace its first letter with a w and its gone. If you want help this evening I can tell you exactly what prop is is and show you how to kick it out. Looks like a fun mod so far keep it up.

You'll be pleased to hear that the technique I'm using in my tutorial doesn't involve swapping the maps, however it isn't perfect for reasons you'll see, but it does work. A bit more poking around should unlock its potential considerably, sadly I just can't find the time at the moment. Work is throwing more demands on my time on a daily basis, so take any deadlines I set myself with a pinch of salt. ;)

That said, I'll be working on the tutorial over the weekend to get it finished. It won't include the removal of that piece of wall since a) I want to get it out 'as is' ASAP, and b) the purpose of the tutorials is to demonstrate concepts rather than provide playable mods.

Thank you guys,

If King can find than code for removing blocade I would realy appricate it.

Also, when Sub finishes his guide I will be able to do it his way without swaping levels, and release patch instead of whole level.

Great, thax again

The method I used in the tutorial won't allow you to do what you've done here. :)

King I tried to find it no luck, can you help?

I kinda sovle this problem killing intirior walls when you are inside greattemple so xwing can get out. Once out, temple restore itself back to normal. It works but it looks kinda stupid.

I Have a few questions and Comments.

I havent Played Yavin 1 yet. but from i can see from the Picture, there are no TREES on the map AT ALL. Why is that? At least set up a couple of trees for troops to have some cover. Because from what i can imagine, to get to the temple its basically Omaha beach reanactment from Savign private Ryan. 100 Die 10 Survive.

Good point. I traied to make room for flyers. I kept some trees/grass for decoration. At some point I was experiemnting with a lot of different kinds of things (PNTS chunck post at gametoast.com) so at some point grass was gone.

Well, this was more learing how to do stuff mod then the real mini-mod. Anyhow, learned what I did on yavin1, I started Naboo1 mod which should keep all original stuff and add new vehicles and expend the map complitly. So, if you wish to follow progress keep an eye on Naboo1 Expended Map.
