I'm releasing a new map in a few weeks and I am organizing a map testing session over at RealworldCE.com.

Here's the original thread : http://www.realworldce.com/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=2606&start=60#p39477

Here's my blog about the map - with pictures : http://blackcrypt.wordpress.com/2013/11/25/130/

The server will be running the map over 3 days (Fri - Sun). Hope a few of you can join in at some point during the event.

Looks awesome! I'll be looking forward to testing this out :)

Have you thought about presenting the final version of this map in this year's CE3?

some of the pictures are quite old, but still represent the general feel of the map. The Police hog is a CUSTOM build from scratch. There will NOT be a porn room.

I had not considered submitting the map to CE3. I am now, but I don't want to commit myself to any time frame - the map is my priority.

Awesome, thanks for considering :D -and yeah, I totally understand; everyone in the community deserves good-quality maps, so I'm glad you prioritize that ^^

You can release the map on your own schedule if you'd like, as long as you feel comfortable enough to present what you have on the show.
In this case, the only restriction you will have is that you shouldn't* release the map before CE3 (probably July 19). (After that date, you can get it out whenever you'd like)

* = this is more of a tradition we have instead of an official rule

The sky in my new map is a modified version of the Lumoria sky.

Mmm, it's my 2.5 year old baby. The weekender session release (this coming Friday) was intended to be for a small group of individuals for testing gameplay and map integrity. It got a bit bigger than that.

The map is on target for it's beta release this coming Friday, you can download it and try it on our RealwordCE test server (preferred) and what you do with it after that I have no control over.

Saying that, there may be issues with the map that might spoil your game night - for example phantom polys, which I'm currently trying to track down and eliminate.

Short answer is yes you can if you really want to, but I would rather you didn't.

What I would request though is that if you do use it for your game night and you do experience any issues with the map that affect gameplay etc, that you post your experiences at the link below...

Good guess but wrong. I call it the 'Interchange' and it will become a very important part of the map for pedestrians.

I spent the night making a few rather drastic changes to the map. I hope it was worth it.

Apologies for the delay. I am waiting for Harb. There seems to be a problem connecting to the ftp file server.

[UPDATE]

Server will be online very shortly, you will not need to download the map if you have HAC installled.


[UPDATE]

Server is ON.

I would like to accept your offer matthew :)

I had some really stupid stuff go on earlier so we got started a bit later than expected, but quite a few players came in - at one point server was full. Lots of fantastic comments. Thank you guys.

Remember though that this is an all weekend event - I will be active as much as is humanly possible, but please just try the map (preferably all in the same server - IP address below) and let me know in this thread or the one at realworldce.com (http://www.realworldce.com/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=2606&view=unread#p39568) what you think of the map - good, bad, ugly or whatever.

Your support and critisism is very welcome.

I think the map is very big and plain in certain aeras (liking the outdoor parts in general), the tunnels needs more distinctive things, you could add signs or something. Oh also danger stripes before pits of death would be welcome.
The spawning areas are also way too exposed, and the main team hub is too opened and can be spammed easily. I also think that It's sad how you can get down but it takes ages to go up... It's also frustrating.
Actually it doesnt look like it was designed with fast paced gameplay as halo tends to create

Currently there are 2 outdoor areas, and neither of them can be described as 'plain'. Tunnels are tunnels - they connect one area to another and are designed to facilitate fast racing. There are plenty of tricky areas to navigate other than in the tunnels - the clearing, the ravine (waterfall and pond area) and the crevasse, not to mention the top parts of the race route such as the jump over the blue flag base.

The base spawning positions are spaced wide and evenly - your point about the map not being designed for fast gameplay contradicts your complaint about the spawn points, you are saying that you are exposed when spawning, then act faster to stay alive.

There are no 'pits of death' other than the pond which has a warning sign each side of it.

The dreaded 'pit of death'!...

The map or the pond? The pond has one, the map doesn't need one.

You should use blending to add some pond scum to the edge of that lake thing. Also, the waterfall continues too perfectly underwater, and the waterfall needs more mist (halo stock tags are available)


also, please ad advanced fish AI that move when you get near them

Can you post some pics of examples from other maps where water (falling) blends with other water (in a pool)?
