What do you think there would work best for a map based on King Kais planet:
A round or a flat map?

Roundish. Not totaly round but just enough for you to see you are on a small planet.

The highest spot and top of the roundness would be the center of the map.

Just dont overdoo the edges. You have to be able to stand normaly on them.

You could technically if you covered the whole thing in func_ladder entities, but the view wouldn't change, and your character would remain upright (walking on his head) =P

Grega's idea works best.

esf_King_Kai - WIP

I'm started mapping on King Kais planet and I have decided that the planet should be flat. But I have a question:
Let us say that you run from one side to the other and run into the skybox, then you should be sort of teleported to the other side again. Like in the Lookout map where you can come down into the HTC and when you run into one side you come out of the other. What do you think about that? I hope you understand me.

Btw I would be happy if there was someone there would find some ref pics. I only have one and I can't find more.

It's a shame there isn't a center of gravity entity, running around on that planet upside down and seeing snake way upside down would be awesome.

I agree with Grega.

But what do you think about my idea with the teleport thing?

Anoying to say the least.

You teleport to 1 exact location. So basicly someone would run throo the teleport. And hed know where you show up.

Or if 2 people teleport at the same time. The person who teleported first would get killed.

Well, quite a few mappers have actually tried this or wanted to, but trust me, it DOESN'T work, because you'll need a hell lot of teleport entities if you want it to go smooth when he appears to the other side of the map, there is a map like this, but it won't be very succesful.

BUT I might have a way for you, come on msn, then we can chat, it's a long story.

The process so far

I have mapped the road, and I am mapping the house and the longer house next to the house. I'll post some screenshots tomorrow.
