Since I didn't hear anything on the other thread I mentioned this on, I figured I'd post it to the main Mapping forum instead of just Help, and see if anyone notices it here instead. :)



Yes, that's ESF_Mid, everyone's favorite checkerboard map, in the process of being rebuilt as close to the original version as I can manage, brush by brush.

Basically, I love this map, and always have. Yes, the 'original' textures may have vanished, but ones that are remarkably-closely-named exist in esf.wad, and look pretty damn good when put in place of everything else. So... right now I figured I'd ask if any of the dev's or the original esf_mid author cares about me trying to resurrect this map?

Contact ESF Stryker, he's the author of the original map. He didn't like it, but the testers practically cried when he removed it :)

Okay, I'm waiting for word back from esf_Stryker, the original map's author, before I post any more info on the map, though I am continuing to work on said map still in the meantime.

Yeah, Stryker is pretty cool, just let him know and it should be okay.

Okay, turns out... esf_mid isn't being 'thrown out' as the 'Known Bugs' thread seems to imply. esf_Stryker says he planned to actually rebuild it with new texturing. :)

And just when I'd finished my rebuild, too. *laughs*

Okay, off to build my own map instead now, if a mod could kindly close this thread entirely please?
