For those that like CTF....
 
For whatever reason/s you may like playing against bots, the new WLS CTF mappack is awesome. The Bot routes are so well done that they actually steal flags and get them back to base to score. Get it here WLS CTF Pack Keep in mind that this is no where like playing CTF online.. but it is fun when servers are down, full and/or you need a CTF fix.

What a shame WLS has left JKII for UT2K3. :(

I'm disappointed with the pack, levels look awesome but from my initial run-through I noticed far too many gamplay flaws. Bespin Streets and that Imperial map were the best of the pack.

Darth Kaan 09-30-2002 01:25 PM

Well...they are good maps and better than nothing for those that like CTF and are limited to playing against bots.

Enlighten me how an initial run-through can show you gameplay flaws

3 months of playing nothing but JK2 CTF, knowing all the problems in the Raven maps, having made my own and knowing the problem with those. Being the author of the only CTF map to date which is commonly played competitively.

Spider AL 09-30-2002 10:41 PM

It takes the very best players weeks of constant play to become totally familiar with every aspect of a map's dynamic. Rest assured, nobody knows everything about any map just yet. ;)

lolz detritic is the most respected map maker in the competitive ctf jk2 community... or what's left of it anyways. i'll be listening in to his opinion as will members of every other major CTF competitive clan out there.

I really like your KaminoX duel map. :)

Correct me if I am wrong but the CTF map you refer to is your Bespin Towers map? The reason I ask is because I am not "active" in the clan based CTF competitive community and it is the only CTF map I can find made by you.

Also, did you ever make and/or release the botroute file your readme for Bespin towers speaks of? I am asking, because if you have, I would like to try it.

I can certainly understand your reasoning for your statement based on the fact you play CTF competitivly online. However, you are WAY off topic. DeTRiTiC-iQ's CTF map doesn't even support bots. The topic was about CTF maps that bots play well on.

This was posted for people who have problems getting online to play CTF, don't like playing online due to the a$$holes, who dont play competitively or just prefer playing against bots.

CTF is my favorite gametype so I am sorry to here the CTF competitive community is dwindling. I am not a Clan based competitive CTF player. I can hardly ever find an decent open to the public non clan run CTF server. Therefore I was happy to find some great CTF maps that bots play well on. Believe it or not, there are lots of people who enjoy this game outside of clan based competitive play.

DeTRiTiC-iQ 10-01-2002 06:11 PM

Bespin Towers was my first ever map using the engine, I wasn't even planning to release it, until I was threatened with torture. Nobody has been able to get botroutes working for it, even Takimoto (author of Artus Geothermal), simply due to the unusual layout. However my newer map will have bot support, even though I think bots are worse than even the worst beginners.

Thanks for your reply!

Bespin Towers is an awesome CTF map. It's unique and the fast and furious action it allows is wonderful. I love the design! I cant wait for you to release your new map!

I can understand your feeling about bots, but some people that love this game, due to their internet connection or a variety of other reasons, are limited to playing against bots or single player.
I have two close friends that fall into that catagorie.

I am currently getting a Linux box with a T1 connection set up for A dedicated JKII CTF server. Your CTF map will definately be on it. I just hope that CTF makes a comeback outside of clan competition play.

Oh and btw, thanks for making such great maps that allow us all to have so much fun!

:D

Oho! I think that qualifies as a flame. You're a real troll Fatal, you know that? It's a shame. Every time a troll writes a flame, Tinkerbell gets a whack on the head with a plank. :D

Good! I didn't know trolls were fond of faeries though. I thought there was this whole species hatred thing going on between them.

Jon'a 10-02-2002 12:55 PM

That is not a flame, he is stating why the detritic would know what he is talking about when it comes to CTF mapping.

That was bad, you should have quit while you were ahead.

Aoshi 10-02-2002 03:06 PM

lolz isnt quoting fun? you can catch people being complete hypocrites and morons so easily:D

Yeah it sure does!

Don't forget to get detritic's Bespin Fort map as well! :D

Kurgan 10-02-2002 11:36 PM

My advice:


Forget the flames.
Download and play the maps.
Make more CTF!!!

Spider AL 10-04-2002 08:40 AM

I note you failed to point out an instance where I flamed someone before they flamed me... Keep trying though. :D

I think you're a troll. You're trolling right now.

Aoshi 10-04-2002 08:16 PM

saying 'lolz' is in some way flaming you? ... i think you need to stop eating the shrooms man.

theres a limit for displayable maps and models in the ingame browser. so if you delete some of the unused ones, the maps will show up


edit: to those who care, isnt all these accusations of trolling getting tiresome?

Darth Kaan 10-09-2002 09:46 AM

Has anyone figured out what the map limit actually is? Just curious...
