K guys, Im lookin for some mappers to make this type of map which i consider not diffucult. All i want for cod, is slightly bigger maps of the ones i and many others already like. So here's my idea. Can one of u (or two or 3 etc) combine the maps dawnville, carentan and brecourt together? meaning like, have carentan on one edge of the map, dawnville at the other (them being two villages) and the brecourt with trenches between the two? Altho i am not a mapper in cod, i think that it shouldnt be too hard of a task for u hardcore mapperz out there, considering u could perhaps just take those maps and add a lil in between. Well, i wanna hear ur replies and suggestions, and thx in advance for u ppl who try and actually do this.
There are a few things to keep in mind about youre request. I don't know the exact size of the maps, but it could be to big to compile. The skybox would have to be huge. The sunlight is different in each of these maps, and finding the right one for this map wouldn't be easy. U also need to cut down on objectives, like one in each town. This wouldn't be difficult. The map would have to be played with a lot of players, and not a lot of servers will be able to handle that. And then there are the csg files, though that shouldn't be to hard. anyway the request isn't simple, probably inpossible due to the huge skybox that won't compile. But by leaving certain things out it might be done. Of course what things are you gonna leave out, what is good, what is bad ?
I don't spend enough time here

"Of course what things are you gonna leave out, what is good, what is bad ?" Good is all that isn`t bad and bad is everything that isn`t good. Haha-I`m SO funny! Hit me :fistpunch:
ok, so the skybox is gonna be hard, but besides that the mapping itself shuoldnt be too hard considering those m aps r done for u already, all u need to do is connect em
the skybox isn't gonna be hard, but impossible. i cant' even put 2 of them together without making my skybox way to big. and a to big skybox means it can't compile, and if it can't compile u can't make the map.
canu make ur own skybox, like, a custom one that CAN be compiled?
u have to customize the skybox, that's not the problem. it doesn't matter if u take over one of the original or a custom, u would have to make the skybox to big or u can't put it all together. u see if ure skybox is to large for the game engine to handle u can't compile the map. pretty much every original map has a skybox a bit larger then half what the engine can handle.
You sound very sure abuot that problem. So ur saying its impossible to do? ok scratch that idea, but how about the maps dawnville and carentan together connected by a short road? Something like that?
Well, that could be done if we make the two towns a little smaller. But there is no way to be sure it will come out exactly right.
so pretty much no one else is gonna reply and/or try it...
