You can't legally get mp/ffa3 available for editing.

You'd have to decompile it, and it's illegal to decompile Raven's maps.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

incorrect. the raven mp maps are inclueded with most editors as examples. so you don't have to decompile it.

oooh goody, so i CAN use the map... what i wanted was the map as a shell, and i was going to seal off certain places, get rid of the elevators, and make new rooms, as well as some hidden ones.. im gonna need all the adivce and help i can get though, lol... thanks zion. for example on 1 of my rooms.. if this was possible, on mp/ffa3, there is a shuttle with a small opening you can crawl through on the bottom, i was going to make a small door for a secret room where the cantina would be... just an idea...

No, only the following maps are included:

t1_rail t2_rancor t3_rift kor1 mp/ffa5 mp/ctf4 mp/duel8 mp/siege_hoth

I don't see mp/ffa3 in that list, do you?

The last level. Or rather, the first part of it.

And forgive my attitude, I'm a little worn out today due to exam revision, sort of makes me irritable.

If you're interested in making a new map, you'd probably do well to go through the tutorials at [color=lime]www.darthg.com/richdiesal[/color] and visiting [color=lime]www.map-center.com[/color] - those are the best resources for mapping tutorials and info you're ever going to find.

(On a side note, does anyone know why Map-Center is still up? I thought it was shutting down, like, ages ago?)

Well, you can drawl out ffa3 Layout plan on paper, Get the nessecary mapping tools. And re-do the layout plan in the game, they dont care if you make maps from scratch! Plus decompiling is wrong! Thats like being kicked in the nuts! And plus I admitt doing that before only because I had saved a map file I converted and lost the map file. When you do decompile it seems out of place but isnt. So keep in mind learning the decompile method is very buggy and can be unstable! Just copy the layout, and improve on it. Like My FFA3 Expansion or something. Dont de-compile, Just make a layout and re-do it to your idea of what id could of been like. I mean lucasarts didnt seem to care much when JK/DF2 maps were redone into JO/JKA... Thats because they werent imported and exported etc... Meh, this is the only best advice you can receive to make a proper FFA map!
