Why, they're all on my HD in .map form. :p

Seriously, be patient, man. I'm sure JK maps weren't all that impressive only a month or so after the tools were released!
The JK2 mapping comunity hasn't had a lot of time yet. Besides, the maps I've seen so far are pretty good compared to the stuff that usually comes out right after the tools are released for a game. :)

I have a couple of things to say about that. First of all, beware the wrath of a patient man. This new map that is going to come out soon will be so so sweet.

Secondly, there are some good maps already out! maybe you don't know about them all...

Oh man... that's gonna be sweet. *drool*


And Danny, where'd you get that Vader model?

I've been looking for one...

LivingDeadJedi is an expert mapper. If you can do better, I'd REALLY like to see it.

Also, a lot of that map is a conversion from Elite Force (a conversion of his own map, mind you), so he's spent a lot more time on it than you might think.

Also, I don't know how familiar you are w/ Q3 mapping, but sometimes you have to 'cut corners' to preserve FPS.

It was not a diss. I respect other map makers fully.

Perhaps my vision of the perfect DOTF map cannot even be done.

I realize how long it took him likely to create this DOTF map too and plan to play on it MP a lot. It teaches me a lot, and yes, I am new to Q3 map making so I am _not_ stepping on toes here.

My DOTF map is only starting to take shape as I learn to create it. But I am not trying to compete with others, just my own high expectations. And with a fast computer and video card, how can I know if my map plays good on other slower systems?

FEXX: Sorry if I took your comments the wrong way. I kinda know how you feel too. I was working on a Sarlacc pit map when I found out one was already released. But I'm still going ahead with mine, mostly because I think it will be more accurate, and a little variety is always a good thing. :)

Plus, I'm a little worried about FPS too... I'm using A LOT of patch meshes. The map is gonna look sweet even if it's only 4 fps. :D

PADMAN: I just d/led your map today. I haven't had the time to check it out yet, but I know I won't be disapointed. Your maps always rock! :) :)
