BTW, will you be making arches underneath the entrances? I noticed that the parts above it are "magically" floating. :p

As for a title.. Yavin Pit? or Yavin Arena.. hehe.. cheesy? probably.

That looks wonderful, repeating textures and all.

It's not sarcasm, I really mean it. It looks good. I don't know how to beat the "repeating brush syndrome" maybe it's brought on by not really caring if your textures repeat. I odn't know, all I know is that I have it too. And I don't care if they repeat.

BTW, you could name it something temple("something" meaning whatever you want it to be)

You got that right!

You didn't realize what? Maybe it's delousion brought on by not enough sleep. Go to bed, then when you wake up, you can tell us stuff, and actually make sense(I mean that in a good way).

That looks great, finally screens of a new Hydroball map :thumbsup::

I'm just worried about the Water, will you place the Forcefield things above it to keep the ball from getting out? And will other people be able to drop down to a level to spectate the match?

If you do name it that, make sure you spell it "Aztec," 'cause that's how it is. Sorry, dude, no offense, I just didn't want you to misspell the title. :D

lol. my speeling sucks. and grets your right i was sleep deprived, wasnt thinking straight lol.

nash. thats not the actual arena.

that just the lobby bit before you get to the arena.


as taking in suggestions fomr other pople. im gonna put in those arches :)

and im gonna make it look more ruined. as in broken blocks etc.

but not too destroyed. just enough too look like its old.

k time to map

Grets Sirob

So what didn't you realize?

I'm so confused...


Anyway, I can't wait for this map to come out. I just wish that the author of the whole thing had released the .map file with it, so us mappers would know how to do it. And how big to make it.

Yeah, I agree Grets.

i didnt realise that you wernt being sarcastic :)

forget about it m8. i was shattered and not thinking at the time.

anyways. i havnt got to that part yet. but i know for a fact when i do. its gonna take me some time to try and get the right size, and get the scoreboard and the new entities working properly.

well wonder if someone knows his email.

ill see if i can contact him.

ive added in the arches.

they look pretty cool. Only thing i dont like is when you make curves and cap them the texture on the side of the curve doesnt look like a proper texture.

ive done my best to manipulate it enough so it kinda fits in, but i believe its part of the ay jedi was made,and cant be changed to my knowledge.


but i didnt get much chance to work on the map today, but im gonna try and spend a long time on it tommorow. and ill add in all of the broken walls, ruined things etc.

and im hoping to add in some fire effects to.

well see how it goes. :)

until tommorow peeps.

Okay, I get it now.

Anyway, get some editor screens, or, if you can, get more in-gme shots.

ok. well here as promised are some new screenshots.

i have taken in some suggestions and tried to make it look more of a ruins.

i have also added arches to the erm....archways :)

and i think. if no one else has any suggestions, or improovements they can help me with. that im pretty much finished with this lobby section. and i can get on with wrking on the actual arena itself.

well screenshots can be found below.

all comments welcome.

Ooo, fire!

Hehe, looks like it'll be a great map:thumbsup:!

I like fire...


I wish I could shoot fire out of my mouth...


Fire is my friend...

lol i dont know if you have noticed or not. but you can tell i have been reading rich's tutorials.

ive got clipping. caulking everywhere.

water, Fire spurt. Models, Rotation. Clip brush.
sound. Music. lol

ive been reading almost all his stuff.

and basically ive tried to build my level by the book so to speak.

its not so bad so far.

I think i might make a couple of the blocks near the bridges, be broken or chipped.

but apart from that there isnt much more to do to the lobby area.
it will be on to making the actual arena.

Btw i contacted the guy who made ydroball. to see if hed make a example map, or give the exact size of the arena, etc.

but i havnt had word from him yet., maybe if we ask together he may feel more pressure to reply lol :)
