VCTF-Quarantine_Arena
« on: March 10, 2020, 16:04 »
I have a map I'd really like to show you all. Please feel free to give constructive criticism, it is my first VCTF map so I'm sure there will be things that will need to be updated. I'm also unsure if I've added everything (textures) into the map without anyone needing to add/find them. If anything is missing I'll try and make sure it's sorted. Also I think it could do with tanks?

"Quarantine Arena was built during the great Coronavirus mass extinction event to protect the fast diminishing human race. Human civilians were being weakend by both war and biological horrors. A great treaty had been agreed...
It was decided by the Human federation that war was still indeed necessary, but preventative actions were needed. A place for war without the dread of Crononavirus to spoil the fortunes of human warriors was built.
Deep within intergalactic space far far away from Coronavirus a new arena had been completed... A safer arena?"

Nice map
You should open the map sides by adding pilars instead a solid wall.
Also the flag spot ceiling is too low.
Spawn points are too grouped. you should spread them on the 3 levels. It's actually too predictable.
And tanks will be a bad idea

OK I've updated the map, thanks again Absolute it really did make the difference.
Would be great if it could be looked at again.

Let's give it a play. I put it on the maplist on the server.

Initial thoughts are that it really needs better bot pathing as the bots currently don't know what to do

Yes your rite, tbh I was lazy and was waiting if anyone would ask for bots support (sorry). No problem I'll add path nodes and will get back to you..
Thank you!

Thank you Killer!

 I'll get the bots sorted today if I have time. The last few maps that I've made for another server didn't use Bots sorry again!  I'm learning.

I'm useless at mapping. I tried adding bot paths and flying node paths to another map and failed miserably

Thanks,

Good job, gameplay is much better.
You make tune it a little bit:

-Move flag stand between scorpion area. It's actually to close to the wall
-Add one manta per team
-Weapon lockers must all be the same. Avril must be on a single pickup around the middle hole.

I did wonder whether a shock scorpion might work well on this map... :D

We played this today and it was a good game.

I couldn't see any point in the bio pickups at the mid point. Bio is best in cramped areas.

I kept taking the jump behind the base on spawning, when I was trying to get to the locker. Maybe a locker at the top just in front of where you land?

Was a nice round that! became tough to take flag when no. of players increased.
a weapon locker behind the raptor up top would do and adding one more manta ? just a suggestion only one feels easy do defend.
