Map Review Contest 1 : FFA WIP
 
Just a quick sample shot of some models I'm making to be used in some capacity for the contest. You guess the location:

Shot 001

The models are untextured, and will probably been seen from afar (most likely as part of the skybox). Comments and crits welcome.

{xg}darthVADER 10-05-2004 03:18 AM

thats probably naboo hehe

looks good

Pontus90 10-05-2004 05:55 AM

wow i was dreaming of a Good lookin Naboo map,and the dream has come true!!

Pahricida 10-05-2004 10:33 AM

Ah well Theed was the capital of Naboo, wasn't it ?

Eldritch 10-05-2004 10:37 AM

Yep.

Eldritch 10-05-2004 12:50 PM

Two new buildings

A few more and I'll have enough to mix them up without anyone noticing they're the same building.

DarkLordTrooper 10-05-2004 05:44 PM

Nice buildings; really does look like Theed.

Prime 10-06-2004 09:11 AM

Excellent work!

Eldritch 10-06-2004 02:18 PM

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Here's a couple more shots - the first one shows the start of the palace compound (and its size in relation to the rest of the buildings), and the second one shows off a little more detail:

OMG Eldritch that is amazing! I can tell exactly where that is because it's just so perfect! I tried to mimic is once by mapping, didn't turn out to well! Keep up the awesome work!! I can't wait for this one!

Pahricida 10-07-2004 04:49 AM

so will you just use these models in the skybox or will they actually be placed as mapobjects?

Eldritch 10-07-2004 07:58 AM

These models will be used in the skybox because they're high-poly; however, a few low poly versions might find their way into the map as map objects.

Mongo05 10-07-2004 10:49 AM

awe that sucks, i was hoping youd actually get to play that part of theed :(

Eldritch 10-07-2004 11:30 AM

Those models are way too high-poly to be used in-game. Don't worry, though - you'll be playing a section of Theed which I hope you'll find just as enjoyable.

I thought those looked a bit high on the ol' pc :P

Looks good though so far. Can't wait to see how you make the rest of the map.

Mongo05 10-08-2004 03:17 PM

I'm glad to here its a ffa map instead of a boring duel map that no one plays :P

Also, how are you going to incorporate those models into the sky? I don't understand.

wedge2211 10-10-2004 03:28 PM

Portal sky, I'm sure. Either that or Eldritch will use one of his sick CG rendering programs. But, probably, he will do both. :)

How we hate him. >.>

LightNinja 10-11-2004 08:19 AM

if your going to make Theed remember that (at least in SWG) behind the palace there is a cliff and at the right of the palace theres a river which ends in a waterfall in that cliff

Mongo05 10-11-2004 01:54 PM

Wedge, if he's doing a portal sky, the FPS issue will just be greater.

Eldritch 10-11-2004 02:09 PM

These models will be used in the skybox images.

Other, lower poly versions might be used as part of the portal sky in order to keep the FPS manageable.

And the "sick CG rendering program" is, as always, 3DS Max.

I'm not going to make all of Theed, since that just wouldn't be possible - however, there will be what I hope is a very enjoyable chunk of it, big enough to hold around 8 players.

Nokill 10-11-2004 08:39 PM

well its ok whit me
yust make something nice of it =)

LightNinja 10-12-2004 11:55 AM

i just said it cuz is near the palace but its awesome the models of the buildings so everyone can expect something great of this :]

Eldritch 10-22-2004 01:38 PM

The skybox is now done - this is just to give you an idea of what it looks like... ;)

JediLiberator 10-22-2004 03:45 PM

//whistles

Good stuff. So which area of theed is the actual map going to be about?

Nokill 10-23-2004 03:14 AM

that looks realy good goodby Galaxies hello JKA map :D

DarkLordTrooper 10-23-2004 06:20 AM

I think that's the best portal skybox I've ever seen!

:eek:

Pahricida 10-23-2004 07:19 AM

thats no portalsky ... it's a render

if it was a portalsky he wouldn't have used high-poly models.

Stake Black 10-23-2004 02:22 PM

Wow! Its so... Realistic! It looks so real! Good job, mate!

Eldritch 11-10-2004 03:31 PM

Sorry that this thread has been so quiet lately, but all my energy had been focused on other things so mapping was a little neglected.

But with that taken care of, things are back in full swing and I just wanted to show off a new building that will be featured in the map. It hasn't been incorporated into the whole map yet (which there will be no shots of - I want everyone to be surprised when they see it on submission day), but I guess I just wanted to show that I'm still working on this map!

Enjoy!

Lindsey 11-10-2004 05:15 PM

Hey Eldritch, any chance you could loan me your buildings when you finish your map? I've been working on a MB2_Theed map but my building skills are still very noobish.

http://moviebattles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1339

As you can see in the pics down the way, my map looks a little boxy, also the people on the forums are looking forward to the map pretty badly as you can see in the latest posts.

I'm thinking of dropping the contest, this Theed map im working is taking all my attention, and I dont really feel like mapping my tropical map at the moment.

Archonon 02-07-2005 08:47 PM

Eldritch did you decide not to continue making this Naboo map? Just wondering since it has been quiet for so long.

Man I really would have loved to see this one finished.

Mongo05 02-09-2005 03:23 PM

Has eldritch ever finished anything?

lassev 02-10-2005 12:38 AM

Right now Eldritch is cooperating in a small SP project with me. He is handling all the mapping, architectural design and texturing for the project.

Just to let you know, in case he doesn't personally happen to pop in to post any details here...

Mongo05 02-10-2005 01:40 AM

My guess is that he wil probably be abandoning your project or starting something else.

Lindsey 02-10-2005 03:50 PM

"this has been positive thinking by Mongo"

lol, good luck lassev, if you got Eldritch mapping for you then me thinks that will be a mod to watch out for. :D

I guess that means he did quit the Naboo map then? Bummer, aside a new Coruscant map a large detailed map of Naboo was what I was most looking forward to.

Thanks for the info Lassev.

Pahricida 02-10-2005 10:20 PM

:rolleyes:

youknow' there is something besides the term "death". No one would propably ever drop such a big project.

It can just occur that you temprorary set your focus upon other stuff, maybe even other projects until you have the ambition and new spirit to finish up the "old" stuff.

However, I just tend to not come to hasty conclusions.

I've finished quite a few things, actually. :rolleyes:

Wrong again. My part in the project with lassev has been completed, with the exception of a final compile (we're waiting on a few sounds files as well). I'm not sure where all your hostility towards me is coming from Mongo, but it's misplaced.

Nope. Look below. ;)

Pahricida's statement is actually pretty close to the truth -- it was a combination of having to go to work for long hours each day (killing the drive for any additional work when I got home), and just having other things that took priority.
Thanks to everyone for their support.

Here's your reward - to be released soon, after I fix a few things and run a final compile (which will up the level of lighting, amongst other things):
Clickie.

El Sitherino 03-07-2005 09:25 AM

My guess is Mongo is envious of your skill. Always great to see your works Eldritch. :)
