LOL! Good luck using an ATAT in your map. Snow speeders I can see. But make sure your map has minimal detail so you can ACTUALLY play the thing. I tried Duncans ATAT in a map big enough to handle it. I noticed some video lag and I only had the one ATAT in it. Duncan only has the BETA out. I think he gave up on the whole idea so it's still unfinished, although seems to work well. The battle of HOTH is just too unrealistic for a game engine such as this. Especially when it's not utilized to it's full potential. I'm doing the battle on Endor or Endor_offensive if you will. But my map only has one MAIN outside area and another small one. When the outside areas get too big, expect lag of some sort. If you plan on going ahead with this project, USE FOG as much as possible. It will help loads!

ive already tested my map with duncans at-at and with tie fighter pilots snow speeder and i can asure you its big enoegh for 4 at-at's and for a snow speeder to fly around them quite easy

and yes my map has fog in it but only for mood
the map compiled faster without them and also lag wasent an issue even without fog

so far the map is fairly stable and i know i dont have that good of a machine

i just need to know how to get those vehicles in my map via radiant

ok wel i have tought up some objectives for the imperial and rebel side

imperials

1. Break through the main Rebel defense line.

2. Take out the shield generator so reenforcements can land.
(i wil have actual shuttle's landing with troops and in the final wave lord vader wil land)

3. secure the trenches

4. secure the command center

5.vader must survive

6. 2 at-at's must survive (out of 5)

7. prevent the remaining rebels from taking off in their last docked transport
(this can be achieved by ether destroying the transport or closing the hanger doors)


rebel

1. prevent imperial at-at's from breaking trough the defense line
(do this with snow speeders with actual tow cables )

2. defend the shield generator

3. prevent the imperials from overtaking the trenches

4. prevent te imperials from taking the command center

5. if all the above failed give the evacuation code signal from the secondary command center.

6. head for the last transport that is docked in the south hanger
(every one playing must be aboard for it to take off)

7. make sure all transports get out safely
(make sure they dont get shot down by enemy fire)

any sugestions on these objectives are welcome

yeppers i have to make both hangers (north and south)
the one you see in the screens is the north hanger
the south wont be as detailed as that is gonna be since you only use the south one to escape if your a rebel

i finaly got vehicles in the game without crashing btw =]

if anyone has a blue print of the ewxact layout inside echo base can you please send it to havoc373@hotmail.com

This map looks great! I've seen an other Hoth map being made but this one blows the other away! If you can pull this off, it will be better then Raven's siege maps.

LOLL! No wonder it doesn't lag guy...theres nothing in it!
If you leave it as it is then yes you might pull it off. Now add a bunch of vehicles to it and on top of that add 10 players. Now how does it play?

Hey if you can pull it off by all means do it. Looks good so far. See how far you can push the detail limit before she starts to lag. The map looks promising. Keep it up!

That's the idea.

When people try to do something very big, they usually quit in the middle. Heck, looks like even Clone Wars TC is dead, which is really ashame, cuz I love cel shading. I will not let give up. If you'll think to give up, I'll keep bugging you through MSN to keep on going

Looks great! Finally a real Battle of Hoth Siege.

But who is going to code the tow cables? It would take hella coding to get functional tow cables to work. Also, it's important that you don't put too many Snowspeeders, or there won't be enough players to fight in the trenches. Me thinks ship-camping could get bad for that sort of thing...

Man...I'm telling you, you are pushing the limits of a game engine that is not even utilized efficiently. Keep going. I want to test this badboy with 6 or 7 other players when you get all that coding done.

great way to spoil the moment

question: is it possible to make the blasters visible trough the fog??

cause right now when i'm firing the at-at's guns i dont see the lasers just the impacts
same goes for the snowspeeder's blasters

Btw
i think this map wil be pretty much able to handle what i have planned for it considering i spawn 30+ luke skywalkers and reborns and the map dropped from 30fps to 26 fps

HINT brushes yes...area_portals????

Are those platform bridge things ASE models? If they are not...they should be...WITHOUT autoclip.

1) Because autoclip is mainly for terrain and very large simple objects. Clipping complex objects will generate a TON of extra brushes you don't need in a map of that size. Just do a general clip of the model and that's good enough. You will never notice it ingame. Clip the railing properly yes, but the rest just do a general.

2) Copy this and paste it in notepad:

"C:\Program Files\GtkRadiant-1.4\q3map2.exe" -meta -patchmeta -subdivisions 4 -game ja "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\base\maps\WHAT.map"
"C:\Program Files\GtkRadiant-1.4\q3map2.exe" -convert -format ase -game ja "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\base\maps\WHAT.bsp"


Replace WHAT with the name of your mapfile.

Now save it as a batch file EX: q3mapase.bat
Put the batch file in the Radiant folder...or in Q3map2 folder if you have another build of the compiler.

And THIS is a way better tutorial. rgoer is one of those guys who explains things in a way that he assumes you know how most things are supposed to work. Mslafs tutorial is much easier to understand.

Oh! and just ignore the shader part and ignore the batch file he made.

ah nice just please don't abandon this project!

And I suggest you use a foghull or at least multi volume fog since that distance cull looks kinda stupid.

otherwise:

Really nice I've been waiting for this !
