Hyperspace (beta)
This is a medium sized dm map that I've been working on for quite some time now. Development has been really slow, mostly because of school, so I'm uploading this unfinished version because it's at least playable.

The key feature of this map is the use of warpzones, and I've gone for a sort of TRON style.

Woah, video's screwin' with my head. Should be pretty cool to play on. In my opinion should be included in the official release if and when it gets finished since it looks both like a good demo of what can be done with the tools available for the game as well as a fun to play map.

RE: Hyperspace (beta)
I want to experience the effects the warp zones have on the gameplay on that map. Can anyone put it as a voteable map on a public server pls?

RE: Hyperspace (beta)
I play-tested it, without opponents or bots so far. Now I have a knot in my brainz. Thank you.

If I'd play this as dm or even as duel, I am sure I would get some more knots in my brainz. Anyone volounteers to put it onto a EU server?

Try playing it with v_psycho 1 set Tongue A grapple hook to increase game speed can't hurt either lol

I'd recommend that you don't play with bots, as there aren't any waypoints on the map. Even with waypoints, I'm pretty sure that bots won't play the map as intended anyway!

RE: Hyperspace (beta)
My biggest problem with this map is how it looks. I mean, it's gray all over. I tried setting all the brightness settings to minimum just for kicks, and it didn't actually turn out that bad.

I opened the console and typed in: "v_psycho 1". It almost like the map was made for it.

RE: Hyperspace (beta)
I see why glow still shows, but why do the specular highlight thingies on the walls?

Edit: ah, is that fakelight? It kind of looks like it...

Are you talking about these?

The thing is, I have absolutely no idea how they got there! I've been trying to get rid of them, but since I don't know what's causing it I've sort of given up.

Oh no, not talking about that. I was commenting the no-brightness test screenshot from Sowinov. I should quote posts where it's ambiguous, sorry about this Smile

I thought those highlights that you're pointing out were intentional. Perhaps someone here understands what causes them, I'm afraid I don't have any mapping-related experience to help.

That's a shader, isnt it? I had a similar problem with some textures in Nexuiz.

Hi ThePWTULN,

I had the chance to play this map earlier this week, and want to extend my thanks for making it. It's certainly interesting to play on, and you can get some unique moves happening around the 'cliff-face' warpzones.

You noted in your original post that this is an unfinished version; if I may ask, what are your plans for the finished version?

(Finally, although AFAIK this doesn't have anything to do with the map itself, I wanted to note it was helpful to me in finalising a submission to the Xonotic Bug Tracker earlier today... so thanks again!)

The two main things are:
  • Finalised item placement - After proper playtesting, I'll know whether there's too much/too little armour/health, or if the weapon selection is good etc.
  • Texture alignment - You can see from the screenshots that the textures don't line up with surface edges. This needs to be fixed.

I love the gravity on the ceiling idea. Can't wait to play it. Smile

I am fully aware of this. This is what I meant by 'texture alignment' in the first post.
