Well I'm no pro mapper in fact I've really just started but thanks to a lot of helpful sites I've progressed rapidly. I'm making a map for Infiltration as thats my favorite thing to play. I haven't really set on a name yet but just though I'd throw a teaser out there. I'd put up a screenshot but I'm currently at work:lookaround: and not at home on my machine. Anyway it's kinda a Vietnam map but if some of you have similar tastes to mine you should like it. The unique thing about it is the chopper. Which instead of doing the gee I can sit here and hover is gonna actually insert the team, or they can hop on the convoy. It has the blue team start point in an opening in the jungle, and two villages. One of the villages is small and not a very suitable defensive position but has a network of tunnels underneath it running towards the second village. The second village is where the briefcase is and will be setup for a strong defense. The helicopter will insert (anyone who's on it) on top of a cliff on the back side of the village. People in the village will be able to climb up the cliff on a cable or try to find the tunnels. I'm really putting a maze of tunnels and quite a few as to prevent people from camping outside the exits. I think this map will force some teamwork and communication from people. To mount a good offense and defense. The chopper will wait on the cliff for a set amount of time before leaving, but it'll come back (I'm not telling the exact times;) ) and the convoy can be hopped near the chopper and it stops at the second village and then continues to the second village. I think this will be good as it adds multiple avenues of attack as well as a place to mount a strong defense. It's still a work in progress though as it's a lot to do and I've been working on it for a few days as much as possible. I haven't actually put the convoy in it yet so might end up being a train or something else. So any idea's? A couple I haven't implemented yet is to maybe put a layer of fog over the second camp so it kinda hies the second village and the cliff top. I haven't tried fog yet I've mainly been using some helpfull tips off a website to make what I have. anyway enough for now.
Oh yeah PS the tunnels are small:cool:
Oh I'm freaking mad as *&@#!!! I was messing with it trying to get everything looking and working just right and I got some funky error and when I reloaded it gave me another error saying that file was corrupt! I lost it all and I think I'm gonna be sick. It took me close to a week to put everything together in there. Although I ran into some dificulties that didn't work out as I had planned. But I had the helicopter flying in and everything. I was using the tutorial for using the train function to make moving platforms etc. Well I just kept adding stops. Took awhile to get it to look right though. Same with the convoy although the FPS was pretty bad but of course my machine is a 450 mhz. So it's back to square one because I refuse to give up.
