IRC: #lm-map

Since the last thread ran out of steam, I'm giving this one last try with a nice new shiny thread. Does anyone want to take part in an LM community made ns_ map? Anyone with anything to offer is invited. If you have no clue how to map, then you can help with layout and theme suggestions. Or backstory. Or cheerleading, or something! If you DO have mapping ability, that's also quite welcome.  :p

If anything comes of this, I'll edit this post to keep track of who's involved and who's working on what. So please list IF you can commit anything to this, and what you can commit. I'll attempt to work as an organizer, and of course as a mapper. I KNOW several of you have map skillz. Think of it this way: the more people we get involved, the more likely you can pass the difficult parts off to someone else. EH? EH????

I can map, but i find it very boring nowadays since VHE is just struggling.
But just talk to me if you need any sprites done for the map and i can give it a shot ;)

I can cheerlead.  I am also a very good critic.  I am a good brainstormer.  

How about a map theme that revolves around the a crash of a spaceship: It could have cool pieces of wreckage scattered about, half of a ship that you could enter and exit, and maybe even add some cool resource node touches (such as out of a stump of a tree or some sort of alien flora.)

I no nothing of mapping.  But I can try and come of with some more ideas.

since I'm a self-appointed fan-fic expert [some of you may remember when I used to own the fan-fic forums on the NS boards], I can work on map story etc

Well we're getting a lot of help with ideas. And I'm sure plenty of people will pile on to playtest once the map is done. The main question though, is who will help me BAKE this bread? Is there no one who wants to get their hands dirty actually making the map? Just think, unless we come up with something that sucks utterly, we can probably be guaranteed a spot in the LM map rotation. Eh? Tickle your fancy any?

Ahhh, you're trying the ol' DoD map productions thing, eh bob?  For those that don't know, Bob is in an AHL clan that specializes in mapping.  They'd have one person work on the map, then pass it on to another person, then to the next person, and keep doing that until it was done.  Works great, but there should be only one person that controls the general layout.  The rest shouldn't touch the gameplay much, IMO.

I'm the absolute worst mapper ever, but I can try to help if needed.

Does ECB want to get involved? I know he's done some mapping. On that note, did he EVER finish his AHL map?

I can help with the actual mapping, just don't ask me to do hint brush work, ugh.

edit: I also have an old layout from a map I never finished that we could possibly use.

Here's the layout for ns_inconvulsus.  Feel free to rip into it, change it, or reject it outright.

Haf, when im out of school I could also take a crack at making a layout :p. Mainly because I am sick and tired of horrible layouts, and want good layouts which dont have double nodes SURROUNDED by other nodes and hives. *cough*caged*cough*

But yeah, that layout which Decimator looks nice, except slightly too big with everything right next to each other... Looks like it might make Half-life choke o_O.

Yeah, i'll work on some layouts in a week and a half when my skewlio goes into summer mode, even if you guys leave me in the dust :D.

I reveal penis I know psychology.

I rather like that, Deci - I'm a big fan of the tightly interwoven type of level.


And Fewpid - we anxiously await your contribution.  We can have a vote-off!  Like Survivor: The Mapping Forums  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D
