This new Forum I've just made I'm dedicating to a new map I'm making.It's basically a huge space map with a stardestroyer and a few debris.My plans for the future, is to make a rebel ship attacking the star desroyer, and make a planet that you can land on.Another goal is to make most of both ships destructable, and to make it even more realistic, make it so you get sucked out of hull breaches.Right now I'm working on the stardestroyer and all the rooms inside. Here are a few pictures of what I have so far.There not very good quality, but I'm planning on submiting better pictures in the near future.

Ok I'm sorry about the last post. Whenever I post a reply or thread, it won't let me use paragraphs. I apologize about this and I can't seem to fix it

Remember, you can only have a certain amount of ents (non lights that is) before Ja will say 'pff, no more'. Thus, it would be unwise to make any large portions of the ships destroyable. Also, remember your detail brushes. And try to use some new textures as well, make it look like a A-new-hope Star destroyer rather than the dull, and overused JO style SD.

Sounds like a good Idea to me but the Idea of landing on the planet doesn't seems all that possible unless you set up teleporters.

And I notice that your trying to use HTML codes for the forum but when posting, do not use HTML...there are forum tags but treat the rest as if it were a Word Document (for paragraphs).

I was thinking I'd probably have trouble with the destructible thing. Mabye I'll make it like battle front and have main areas be destructible. Also, about the planet thing. It's not really going to be landing. What I'm going to do is texture/shader a planet on one of the space walls, then make it so that when you get near it you'll go into hyperspace. When you get out of hyperspace, you'll be on some random planet (undecided on what planet to use.). Right now I'm still figuring out textures. Whenever I put them into my map it shows up as the ever feared black and white grid. When I figure it out I'm definatally putting custom textures everywhere. Also, how exactly do I turn off my HTML? Oh yeah, and here are some new pictures:--- http://s126.photobucket.com/albums/p105/DarthParrot/?action=view&current=shot2693.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch1 ---- http://s126.photobucket.com/albums/p105/DarthParrot/?action=view&current=shot2691.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch2 ---- http://s126.photobucket.com/albums/p105/DarthParrot/?action=view&current=shot2695.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch3

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been quite busy lately. I don't have any pictures right now, but I'll tell you what I've been doing. I've been adding some new rooms. so far I've added a training room, and a construction room (there are atst's being built in this room. Some of them you can even drive and play around with.). I've also been adding some turrets. Now, one thing I've noticed on other space maps is that there are these humongous turrets that kill you in about 5 seconds. I think this is a little bit unfair, and have thus toned down the turrets in my map so that they are a bit easier to handle. (PS: I'll see if I can get some pictures up soon.)

Nice progress, looking awesome. Maybe you should try to do something like SJC's Invisible hand where you see the rebel ship in the background shooting the star destroyer. Make sure theres a large bridge with a large window, which the villian always seems to look out.

With the whole hyperspace thing you are talking about what do you mean? I'm thinking you mean after going through hyperspace the whole SD teleports to appear to be landed on a planet, and you can leave it and such. I'm not sure thats possible, but I know what you can do.

Like on one Deathstar trench map you could map it so that there is an area in space that if you travel into it in a TIE then you'll go into hyperspace and come out flying above the planet.

Another thing, I know you haven't decided what planet yet, bt what are you going for? Civilized or barren? Because if I know this I can help you decide.

Actually the Stardestroyer will be stationary, what I'm planning on doing is making it so you can fly a tie-fighter (or any other vehicle) through hyperspace and onto the planet surface. I'm not sure what the planets going to be like. I was shooting for some baren planet that the rebels have a base on. So then you could have a battle front style war in space and on ground between the empire and the rebels. Also Help would be very much appreciated Anakin992 :) .

No prob, well I think its a pretty good and underused idea. I think the planet you generally described would be awesome. I think it should maybe be a planet with a active sand storm (or a button that can turn the sandstorm off if you know how) and then a small building with the rebel mark on it, it'll look small from the outside but have a mid sized basement, which'll actually be the base.

If it could all fit that is. But I'd like to assist you in any way I can. I just can't map at all yet, but I got all the great ideas in the ol noodle. BTW, the hyperspace portal will be 2-way right? I mean you'll be able to get back to space after you get to the planet.
