Endor Siege

Just a quick note.
Finally after moving halfway across the world, I'm set up again.
Was going to work on some stuff for Doom3 & HL2 but find myself inspired to finish off my Siege_Endor map.

No Pix for now - I no longer have my own website.

Anyways, it will be vaguely modeled after the Battlefront map (Very vaguely).

If there's anything you'd like to see/not like to see gameplay wise in the map, let me know now, so I can incorporate it before I get too far into reworking the previous design I did.

If ya wanna know why I'm doing it - It's 'cos you can't play as a Jedi in Battlefront (As yet).

Will be including my speederbike and the unreleased Ewok Glider.

Hope there'll still be someone left to play this by the time I'm done!

Bunker Interior

Yes.
SunBurn already built me a large one - but I've since lost/deleted all my previous Endor stuff, so will be starting from scratch.
It will also be a bit simpler.

Where to post Pix?

Any suggestions on where to post screenshots?

I've just started Hacking together various exising models to make an ATST Pilot to go with this and will have to make a Rebel Commando model as well.
Also need to get my Ewok glider model put in game as a vehicle.

Teams Are:
Rebel / Rebel Commando / Rebel Pilot / Rebel General / Wookie / Jedi

Stormtrooper / Imperial Commando / ATST Pilot / Imperial Officer / Scout / Jedi

But there were no Jedi in the Battle of Endor... how can you have Jedi? Oh and it's spelled Wookiee. [/Spelling Nazi]

Well there wouldn't be any point doing the map without Jedi. I could just go and play Battlefront again.

Still Working Out The map layout. I've tried various designs but I haven't been happy with many of them.

I've finally managed to get set up again and while I was going to do some Doom3 & HalfLife2 stuff, those games are sooooo expensive here (New Zealand) I just can't be bothered for now (Not that I don't have some projects in mind).

Still, I'm close to finalizing the map layout for this Endor map - when I can find somewhere to put Pix, I'll post them.

You could go to freewbs and get some space or you could send your screenshots to me and I'll put them up on my webspace. I'll PM you my email if you're interested.

LK, That would be cool. Thanks.

Finally found some building references that I needed and Sunburn was able to find the interior map of the imperial buker that he had worked on - though I'm only going to use some small sections of it just to keep the level flowing.

Did a bit more work on the ATST Pilot as well, fixing his boots and adding some detail to the helmet and the pouches on his legs. Still have to add the pouches on his arm and the communicator on his arm. Then it will be texturing time - setting it up and doing it PROPERLY is one of the bits that takes the longest. I've seen some suprisingly shoddy efforts recently...

My old site is gone 'cos I've recently moved from Los Angeles back to New Zealand. They're really stingy with the internet here - $60/mo for 2Mb broadband DSL access with 1 e-mail address and no web hosting.

No, I don't think I'll finish the Nexu - It wasn't working out as well as I wanted.

Anyways, just finsihed reworking the interior of the bunker - there's still stuff to be done but it's about 80% complete (Just have to add some detailing, effects and lighting.)

Will get some pix for Lil Killa to post as soon as I get a chance. Gotta go to work you know

Bah, that's worse. Too bad about the nexu, I really hoped the reek and nexu would come out some day.

But would anyone be around to use it?

Everyone seems to have moved on to more recent games.

Thanks Nokill, but I've already done the bunker + associated structures.

Sent Lil Killa the pix so hope he can get them posted today...

Opps repeated myself a bit there...
Anyways, haven't started on the trees yet - just working out a way to make it look like they go on forever using a portal sky in combination with "real" trees in forground.

Am currently woking on getting all the major structures in place, then will populate the forest with trees and appropraite foliage.

Red glowy thing on top of bunker and in generator room are CONTROL POINTS - like Battlefront, that you have to capture. Each one is a Siege Objective that once captured, will allow your team to spawn there.

Generator room and generator control room originally modeled by SunBurn for me. (With considerable fixing by me - still have to fix those control panels too).

Nolight compile, anyone?

If you move the texture on the control point patches up just a tad, you won't have those wierd floating rings abovee the gradients.

The outside is really hard to judge without tree/foliage models in place, and that is the most bizarre skybox I have ever seen.

That's because I haven't done a skybox yet!!!
These are just textures I've put on there to try and convey the feel of a redwood forest.
It's all temp until I've got the Hero tree models & textures built.

So don't fret - it WILL look much better when finished!

OK finally managed to get some more done last night - the company Christmas party and resulting er... tiredness meant I haven't really made any progress for the last few days.

Anyway have mostly finished of the main Imperial Structures - just losts of detailing / sounds / etc to add. Also been working on making some custome forest textures - that's the hard part trying to make it so the forest doesn't just end in at the abrupt wall of the skybox or as is more usual with outdoor areas - a big huge impassable hill that runs the edge of the map.

ATST Pilot almost finished - just a few more tweaks and he'll be ready to bring into the game (Anyone?)

You could pull off a forest boundary if you have trees and brush (an alpha shader on an endcap snaking its way along the ground, perhaps?) that get gradually denser as you enter the forest, until they get dense enough for you to just lay down a clip brush.

I'm gonna try a combo of real trees (ie. 3D models) combined with a layer of 2D trees then a portal sky featuring more 2D trees and a sky shader with a dense forest background image!!!
Still in the testing stages.

Ewok village is next major structure I'm working on.

Hope to have some more pix this weekend.

yes this is also how I want to realise my latest map.
The disadvantage just is that these models have to be really low- poly.
At least mine are because you can't really block them with vis tricks since they are in the portal sky.

What about some screens on the AT-ST Pilot?

Just sent some updated pix to Lil Killa, so hopefully he can post them.
Have started work on making a variety of Low poly redwoods for use in map. Even so, with all the foliage and whatnot, you'll need a fast machine + fast internet connection, though I'll do my best to optimize it.
Anyways, just trying to get the Imperial half of the map to a working state, then I'll do the rebel section. Then after a bit of ALPHA testing, I'll finish detailing the whole thing.
Haven't yet added the portal sky - hope to get time to do that tomorrow.
Tonight there's a big Christams Show at the park I'm obliged to attend.
