My favorite thing to do online is to play capture the flag. People keep making Free For All and dual maps but no Capture the Flag Maps. What is up with that?

I don't know, i'd like to see some more CTF maps as well.

edit. Ha, it's finally happened. I'm been registered at the forums since jan, and read them everyday, and i'm finally no longer bantha fodder! Yes!

Hehe ;)

Wired Lamp Studios is currentl working on a duel, a ctf and a ffa mappack. Duel mappack will be released somewhere next week (if all goes well), ctf mappack will follow later on. CTF Mappack is at the moment about 55% done.

Remember CTF maps are a little harder to make then FFA maps or duel maps. The maker has to consider team size...weapons placement for both sides. Symetry (sp?) and other things to make a good CTF map. In fact I think besides SP maps they are the hardest to do.

You're probably right there.

While most people will just make medium to small DM maps (since those are the easiest to do), in for example, the UT community, you had many great CTF and Assault mapes created.

Sure the early maps probably won't be that great, but eventually we should see some real gems, which I look forward to playing!

Once people get the hang of decent bot pathing, and team scripts, these kinds of maps shouldn't seem so daunting to make.

But you're right, item and base placement is KEY in these kinds of maps.

Sounds like youall know what you are talking about. FFA and dual maps look like they would be easier to make. In fact some of the dual maps I have seen are very very simple. I am looking forward to the new CTF maps by Lamp Studios.

Hiteche5 could you post to this board when your CTF map is done? Thanks!

I'm working on a CTF right now. Need to finish duel first though. The cool thing is, I'm working on three maps at the same time! Because I'm working on the duel one, I'm working on the other two at the same time. It's a Mimban Temple (another of the many) and I'm going to have a Duel version(working on that now), CTF version and FFA version. All are grids of rooms (duel: three by three ctf:five by five with two flag rooms and ffa:a whopping seven by seven grid of rooms!) BTW, all of the rooms are 20 by 20, and the center room is twice as high with a second floor.

Will post screens tomorow. :)

Team Valar is releasing a CTF map pack sometime toward the end of May. It will include 3-5 maps, designed for hardcore CTF competition. If the community likes them, hopefully we can get them into some ladder rotations. I'll post a new thread later this month with work in progress screenshots. If anyone has any cool ideas they would like to see, contact me in #valar on irc.enterthegame.com Thanks!

My CTF map is finished, zipped and readme-ified. But Massassi is getting it first.

I hope someone takes me up on my idea and makes a 2fort style CTF map ala Team Fortress Classic.

I'm a bit bothered about how many times i'm going to have to explain this.

the map on jedioutcastmaps.com is not the final release, it is an alpha release which they downloaded from my webspace and posted as a final version

You can download the final version from http://www.massassi.net
