Hi all,

Here is a new update on the map. I've rebuilt it so that it now consists of about 1/10 of the brushes. I managed to get Shadyz's ship ingame and now I have started working on the scripting (cinematics and AI, etc.)

Here are some screens for you to take a look at :

if the limit has been exceeded.

Please give your comments.

Thanks a lot

the arena looks a little more like a rocky crater thing. i thought the arena looked more like a stadium.

UltimateZeus

Well yes, you would be correct...however we are not looking for high detail here on a stadium look. You can choose - do you want a nice looking stadium and you can only spawn in 3 people and then the map goes to hell, or would you want a fun map that is enjoyable to play with a great framerate.

We are looking for quality here... and playability I feel is above graphics. Just Shadyz's and my personal opinion.

But thanks for posting a comment, at least we know someone is alive.

Clever conversion from the location to what looks like being a great SP level, and very keen on the idea of custom models in an SP map as well! Maybe the kind of very yellow areas are a bit too yellow and bright at the moment, but that's a minor thing, all round looking very nice

Thanks :D Its actually a darker map when u are on the arena floor. There is alot more scenes i think you all will like that we havent talked about yet. :D

well from the looking at your 8 fps, im wondering what do you consider "great framerate"?

Shadyz
10-17-2002, 05:51 PM
Dude just cool it......Our purpose was to make it less fps as much as possible.....If you dont like it please dont post in this thread.

UltimateZeus

Ummm. Sorry, ShadyZ please cool it yourself.

We don't want unhappiness in this thread :)

It's a perfectly vaild question.

The reason for the low framerate on the screenshots is because I only have a 600Mhz with a Geforce 1. Most people have higher than this and therefore I am creating the map until it starts going slowly on my computer. So therefore the minimum requirement will be a 600mhz.

On Shadyz's computer (I think it is 1.5ghz), It runs perfectly without bad framerates.

Remember, Frame rates do not tell you anything as they are different for every machine.

That's what I did with my map, End Of Time. I started basic, then added detail until I felt it was no longer playable. The good thing was, it never reached that point :)

Nice start, but I hope you guys do custom textures for it.

Are there any screenshots of your map, Chrono? If it's based on the "End of Time" from Crono Trigger i'd like to see it...

Yea ok...mines actually a 1.8 but close enough. The only problem i experience is an error of jk2sp.exe after iplay the map. Its probably because I have alot crap on my pc andi need to clean it as sooon as possible. Anyway I hope you enjoy the map when it comes out. Well put the those JK2 jedis to work :D or rather Zeus will.

Try KaZaA or another similar file-sharing program. And isn't it past your bedtime?

Good Idea Guys Hope it ROCKS!

Sorry Marth thats Zeus's arena Im not a scripter just a model builder :D

I thank you guys for your support. I just everyone could have a high maience machine so we can use alot more "Official" Jedi liek plo koon or kit fisto. But the jedi from jk2 are pretty awesome in action. :D

Well the majority of the jedi that fought in the arena were like, nondescript Jedi... think about it... of the 200 that went to go fight in the arena, only 20 made it to fight in the opening battle of the Clone Wars with the clone army (and it doesn't say how many of them survived, but at the most, 20)... that's only 10% of the Jedi that arrived. And those 10% were all Jedi that we know the names of... so don't worry about using regular jedi.

Thanks for the support. I think we should spread out the droids more evenly when it comes to the "MAIN" battle in the arena. After say 15 die more dorids load . But spreading em out increases exposure to you (makes it more difficult) and allows to go around arena so u can see all of the map :D. Oh by the way Anakin that map of yors ROCKS. :D

Madjai
10-20-2002, 12:38 PM
ok sounds good. is the map going to have any music though? if so, what kind (all SW, or other...)?

Thanks! But do you mean the JEDI map or the Hogwarts one? I'm assuming the JEDI one because i've just started on Hogwarts. ;)

Shadyz

Both of em. I may be able to help you texture it..maybe I got to see whats left fo rme to do with the arena modeling/texturing.

The music will be from the love pledge and the arena by John williams. :D Pretty up beat.

zues/shadyz how do you make a sky i've been working on a map of my own but don't know how to make a sky which would be useful.

Shadyz
10-20-2002, 06:07 PM
We actually used an existing skybox

Marth
10-20-2002, 06:09 PM
skybox????? wll is it a texture?

Shadyz
10-20-2002, 06:41 PM
um its just a box with a sky texture on it... here are som modeling tuts.

UltimateZeus
10-21-2002, 05:35 AM
Don't bother with the tuts. Just make a box and texture it with the skies/bespin texture. That will create the skybox.

Oh, and about the door question. Just set a key of angle and a value of the angle value...

A question to all : What would be an ideal size for the map. Obviously the more models added, the bigger it will be. It looks like it is not going to be less than 10 megs.

I am busy with my varsity exams at the moment, so the map should come out in about 3 weeks or so.

I will continue to give updates when I have free time :)

Shadyz
10-21-2002, 02:41 PM

Shadyz
10-21-2002, 03:11 PM
Yea so make about 400 10 meg jedi models in it so we got a huge ass map :D
