hi all

i heard that there are not so many maps in the beta yet,
i think it would be nice to do a mapping contest, that every mapper can make a map and the one who makes the best,
wins, gets a test version of the beta, optimizes his map to it,
and the map gets in the beta..

plz esf team, think about it.
and the others, plz dont flame me at this one,
if you think it's not a good idea then keep it
for urself or say it normally (if it's not said before..)

YES! I say you guys should! making maps for ESF would be rather interesting. here my thoughts on easy maps to make

Open so that you wont have to worry about door sizes and such if it takes place in buildings. but open areas are best to play in anyway! :)

yeah, but open areas is the weak point of HL..
hl is made for "inside" levels, cuz when there are too much polys in ur screen, it lags, to test that; start up ur level,
goto the console, and type: r_speeds 1

then fly as high as you can and look down, then bring down the console and if the wpoly is higher than 1000, the map is too detailed..

but when you make a door, you can't see the polys behind that door, and that makes the wpoly lower..

Most maps in ESF are about 1200-1300 wpoly's average I believe :) As long as you don't fly to the very tip top of the corners though, you won't see them all.

just sounds like some lamers idea to get the beta early...


why would the winner get a test version??? isnt his/her map being in the beta good enough... sounds like a scam to me

Ive tested some of Dudes maps for him in the past, and i have no doubt that all he wants to do is make good maps [besides, wanting the beta hardly makes him unique]

Perhaps some other reward could be arranged? competitions really enhance the community as a whole i believe, and if we could maybe compromise on the reward, there may be some positive outcomes from such an event.

Cheers ;)

nono..

i would also make a map for the beta is i dont get an early test version.. only one problem: to make my map work with the beta,
i must have the beta.. to test things..

i could also let it get tested by cheeseman or val or you..
but that's really annoying..

So then it's settled a maping contest would be unappropriate at this time.... Maybe a little after Beta release it could be possible.
