Here is a Duel Map I've been working on - right now I'm just messing with the fun parts of Q3Map2.

Let me know what ya think bout it:

It definitely looks interesting... a bit on the dark side, though.

Very imperial-looking.

Yes, the contrast between dark and light is to drastic. Fade it abit more perhaps, otherwise it's a good start.

Is there any recent news on this map? I'm kinda itching to see the full version. :)

I'm very pleased to hear of the itching. My main mapping days are thursday and friday, the rest o the week I'm sketching out new ideas. There's quite a few changes I made to this map since last thursday, it should be pretty good.

I'm going to try to over come my OCD and break up the symetry a bit - if you know what I mean. Supposedly the latest Q3map2 has the fixes to lightmaps that I'm looking for.

nice work, it looks pretty q3ish ;), is the skymap from q3? (cant remember)

I want it to have the gritty-ness and static cling from q3 - the skybox is from JO, the rest of the texs' are custom, by Zul, MaDaVentor, or myself (the alpha tex's are by myself ... I think there's only one in there, but I made 3 or 4 others that will be in the final)

Ok, my FTP has been hosed all morning, now it's working, here's some updated shots. I just compiled, so I should have some more soon.

I've changed the lighting a lot since these pics, so don't fret.

OK. I wont fret. :) I'LL PANIC!

Just kidding. But one thing you may want to consider is toning down the brightness of that green glow on the columns. It REALLY draws the eye, which isn't neccisarilly bad, but...

Looking good so far though.

Hehe - already thought of it - now, the next question, is do you mind the little light 'splotches' that appear instead of the green lights in this next pic:


Also, should I try to lighten up those blue lights .. to make them less ... blue?

11-01-2002, 04:06 PM
The blue I like. It's dark enough that it's subtle. As l;ong as it doen't catch the eye the way that green did, no prob. As to the green splotches - as long as there is an obvious light source for them, NP. :)

Ok, I have a better idea now of what I wanna do - I'm gonna fog this bad boy.

After updating my RTCW and playing, I miss that gritty, Kill teh Zani Nazi feel, so I'm gonna do my best to get that feel - just over a lake of lava!
