As much as I love Raven Shield and its expansion Iron Wrath, I can't say I appreciate this map conversion from the former. I can only very briefly explain how crummy the quality is without ruining all hope in the developer for making future maps. First of all, the lighting is terrible. It's awkward, random, ugly, super bright, and just doesn't work. The map is like a mixture of night and day and just kills my eyes. As if that weren't enough, the texture work is horrid. I think the author should simply take the RVS textures and use them in the map to maintain that modern feel, or just give it a whole new texture set from CoD so it looks somewhat believable. In short, don't expect a whole lot from this map as far as playability is concerned; although it's available in DM, TDM, CTF, and ACTF (latter two for regular CoD), it's all just a handful of bare, poorly lit walls and a layout to give it shape—albeit an entirely displeasing shape. See the screenshots, and download it only if you are very much in need of something new to play.
PS: Don't have to make 'em to break 'em, that's what I say. Sorry, though, paulb39.
EDIT: The map is also available in BEL.
EDIT 2: At his most urgent request, the following is paulb39's description of the map. Feel free to comment on it below.
This is my 5th map, a remake of the map mp_Streets from the game Rainbow six 3: Raven Shield. Its pretty much the same, except it doesnt have the modern textures to it. And yes I do agree with xXezekielXx that "the lighting is terrible" and if I find my .map I will kidnly fix that. This is my "Fx map" since I spent a lot of time on scripting things like exploadable objects and walls. The map is playing at my cod1 server, just do /connect codstats.kicks-ass.org in console.
====================================================================== Description: This map is based off the Rainbow Six 3 Raven Shield map Streets. It was a small training map in raven shield to track down some terrists. I've had this map for about 3 months now. The mapping editor was laggy, and it was annoying to map, so I waited for my new pc to continue with this map, but unfortunally I lost the .map file. So this might be a final if I cant find the .map. I consider this my "Fx map" since with the help of modsonline I was able to acomplish: Many exploadable things, like crates, walls, and barrels :) Breakable windows Breakabkle planks that are boarding up some windows Targets that get blown to bits when you do some shooting practice If I can find my .map I will add a day version, fix the lighting annoyance, make the houses have some paintings and furnature and some other various fixes/addons ====================================================================== Map Title : mp_rvs_streets_night Map Version : Beta (Might make day version, and do improvments if I can find my .map) Author : Paul E-mail : [email protected] Website : http://clansw.low-ping.com/main.asp Xfire : paulb39 ====================================================================== Game : Call of Duty1 Supported Gametype : Multiplayer : Deathmatch : Team Deathmatch : Capture the Flag : Behind Enemy Lines Map Size : 6-12 : Medium Map ====================================================================== Contents of this Package : Pk3 ScreenShots Readme ====================================================================== Installation Instructions: Put the pk3 into your CoD Dir e.g C:\Program Files (x86)\Call of Duty ====================================================================== Construction Time : Custom Content : Known Bugs : None so far (Im not realy sure since I havnt played it in a long time) Just some annoying lighting Email me if you find any ====================================================================== Special Thanks : NighMare for helping me with scripting People at Modsonline.com for also helping me with scripting and other problems, and for there readme creator ====================================================================== Clan: Visit our site http://clansw.low-ping.com/main.asp Find there info of our teamspeak and cod1 server ====================================================================== Legal "mp_rvs_streets_night" is copyright protected. Now I saw a lot of maps where there was a problem with the gsc (scripting) part of the map- and people fixed it, and they got yelled at for "changing the map"- If theres some gsc problems with this map- please go ahead and fix it, and email me with the fix :) Now if I do find the .map file, in my next version I will include it in the map. For people who wuld like to see how I did the "eye candy" part of it. If you prefab some buidlings from my map, include in ur credits my name! ====================================================================== This readme file was generated at MODSonline.com Visit MODSonline.com for custom game content: Downloads, Projects, Forums, Tutorials, Videos, Reviews, News, etc. http://www.modsonline.com/ August 07, 2006
