first i post the map here for some tests.
please report me error or more ideas

i changed a few things since the last map:


    new and more realistic texture
    2 more powernodes
    more vehicles
    omg even botpaths included :O (but no comment lol)
    battle bikes
    and better lightning



you need to download the battle bike files by yourself i think.

Found a little something concerning the map behavious on the server .. might be usefull

Also saw that a nice amount of fog makes it run a lot better .. both for server as client .. but hmmz smoke/ fog in ure room .. ah well perhaps u have some thoughts on that Smile

so you think it would be better to kill all spidermine guns?
they arent much usefull in ToySoldiers anyway i think ^^

and yes, i also thought about to put some fog in it even if it looks weird when there is some fog in a room...anyways, i will just put some fog on couse that makes the gameplay much smother Smile

I have one suggestion. Instead of zones and fog, use blocking volumns to cover up static mesh drawing. Such as in your couch, or in a wall. Blocking volumns prevent the engine from drawing static meshes. This is a round about way of getting results, and you have to be careful about how many you use. Try takeing out the zones, and useing blocking volumns.

Nah i doubt that any other gun for that matter

But the spiders i can imagine .. but then again it doesn't always seem to be that way .. some maps also have spiders and they just run fine ..

It is most likely just the way the map is built .. but unfortiunatly i have no knowledge on how to improve that Confused

im done with the map now, i put on doors for each room and a little fog now it seems to be smoother.
but one question, shall i delete the bikes? couse the map + texture is already about 30MB and the bike files are also about 25MB i think... that would take ages to load the map Shocked

Something is not right with the map, or the file. I can not open it in the editor, or in the game itself. It crashes both with an error message of runtime. Does anyone else have this problem?

Well from the version i downloaded from this topic here are my comments Razz

First off i think the map looks great .. like the added stuff .. fences and so on Smile also the jumpramps are fun with the battlebikes Smile

The map seems a little dark but that is a good thing i think that will at least make it run smoother Smile

So all in all good job Smile curious to see what the last version looks like

Now a few sidenotes ..

It took me quite a while to get all the files needed for this map to run coz apperantly u used some textures from other maps and unfortiunatly rather big ones too .. and when i say big i mean BIG Razz

I'll make a list below to see what u used

Kee
first one u need is obviously the map and the textures within the archive
then u need the battlebike mod BattleBikes 12 MB zipped from wich u basicly need all the files in there

nr 2 : U apperantly used some textures and static meshes from a map calles AS-Jumpship AS-JumpShip 12,5 mb zipped from wich u need the Jumpshipobjects.utx 11,32 mb and the JumpShipobjects.usx 4,8 mb

nr 3 : U used some more textures from a map called DM-Urotsukidoji 42,5 mb zipped from wich u need the Urotmesh.usx 22,9 mb and the Urottex 44,8 mb ..

As u can see this makes for a redicilously large download

57 Mb compressed from the redirect server
134 Mb directly from the gameserver

So my suggestion would be to try and use the standard textures / static meshes ( i know the clan pics and so on are cuustom of course)this will definaly keep the size down

Hehe that's about it from me Smile

Hope it helped a bit

Cheers
Car...


Ow btw i've put it on my testserver so if u peeps are curious what it looks like play it there .. ive put all the downloads for the map on a different redirect //.. the password to get in = testing

OK...Damn.... I thought I was good at mapping, and getting around hard to handle thigns. But I could not get into his map at all. Congrats Car for achieving the impossible. How did you figure all this out?

Where did you put it, in your test server? Where is that. I would love to see what happened to this map.

testserver is in the list .. or at least it should be Razz

All other downloads there are not on the redirect btw so all other downloads will go slow .. but if u been on our normal ONS server u just need to download the map + stuff needed for the map wich is redirected

ip = unrealserver.dnsalias.net
