[CTF] Hydroxon, yes, it's Hydronex for Xonotic!

#1
Hello,

according to a completely made up survey, three out of 1000 Nexuiz players say "Yeah, I would play Xonotic, if only there was a special version of Hydronex for Xonotic!"

So obviously porting this map was a mission critical project and I immediately deployed 143 of my most efficient beavers to get the job done.

New version, hydroxon-r2

Map comes with bot waypoints, although the bots have trouble with water. Map sources are included. The map also is available in the savagex/hydroxon GIT branch.

And a reminder on how things looked like in Nexuiz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQM4lJEKYuc


Enjoy!

Looks really nice! I look forward to play some matches on it.

A few tips:
-The jumppads in the bases look like they are not supposed to be there, just out of place.
-I think some more lights would look nice.
-Maybe some kind gate in the middle. Only for eyecandy, it shouldn't close orbe an obstacle in any way.

Thanks for the feedback so far, currently brewing a r2 in GIT.

tZork, thanks for adding this to the map pool. I assume this map will play well on Overkill, the overall "opposing bases, with middle ground" layout is a tiny bit like space-elevator, which is insane fun in Overkill (albeit, or perhaps because of being, a bit chaotic).

Hydroxon - yay.

One of the (more or less) "classic" and often played maps of earlier times.
I'd love to see this added to a regular CTF server / played with 3v3 or 4v4 Big Grin

Thanks a lot SavageX !!!!!!11111oneoneoneleven

One of the best pub maps back at nexuiz times. Should be added to the DCC CTF maplist.

This map isn´t an eyecatcher but the gameplay is just awesome! It´s now up to you, SavageX, to make this map looking amazing! Wink

Thanks for the kind feedback, it's always nice to know that mapping work is appreciated ;-)

I've already worked a bit on the visuals, progress can be witnessed in GIT.

I wondered why the lighting looked flat, then discovered that I used _minlight in the original Hydronex. Already worked a bit on better lighting

Before:

After:

You can also see that I visually integrated the jumppad into the floor geometry and added some ramps on the side walls of the hall for added movement fun.

Edit: Yes, the ramps are a nod to Egyptronex: http://pics.nexuizninjaz.com/viewer.php?...nk02ms.jpg

Was kind of hoping someone would of remade it more akin too the original UT map as its tbh much better then the nex/xon versions and not as linear.

This remake of the nexuiz version looks pretty though so good work.
