I was the runner-up, but it's one project that I could do without. Next in line are qtit, Kaka and Sarevok, but I can't imagine any of them being that keen to do it (correct me if I'm wrong).

I have a feeling this may require further discussion...

a simple hub map can't be that hard to make, so I'd volunteer for the mapping should nobody else want to. though obviously I cannot provide the fancy scripting-related features that have been discussed, I'd need some additional help with that

I don't think we necessarily need that much scripting, if indeed the map isn't going to block off maps that have already been completed. The inventory killer trigger should deal with most of it. However, the matter of certain maps requiring custom gametypes is more tricky. Some form of gametype switching teleporter may be required (is that even possible?).

It really might be more logistically sensible to just include them in a rar and not have a hub map. It's not necessary, after all, and is just a fancy additive. Personally, I wouldn't mind that; I would probably just want to make an Oldskool map entry so people don't have to use the Custom Maps dropdown to access it. We could probably make a single .int file for all the Oldskool maps, and then have the others include whatever instructions are necessary.

If you would like to do it, qtit, then that would be great (sorry sana, qtit has the rightful claim!).

Waffnuffly - One problem with the Oldskool map pack list is that there's a finite number of entries you can IIRC. That would, IMO, lend credence to our contest maps being released with a "Hub" map so that they can have a single entry.

That works? I wish I'd known that before I hacked a gametype horribly for Deja Vu...

Weee!!! Cool. Problem solved.

If I may... I've got a strange museum map concept... Gonna post testmap soon, so ya'll see if it's worth giving it a more serious shot.

sana..not at all..I stand behind the last sentence of my review:

"This outing doesn't pretend greatness but indeed shows us a person with adequate potential for improved future releases."

You've definitely got the skillz :tup:

I'd have joined this, were it not for my terrible ineptness with deadlines.

At least it brought some good stuff, and even served as a springboard for large-scale project ideas like ISV-DragonFly although I'm still holding my greater "To be released in the next months" expectations for TCO, Firestorm and the remake of Project Xenome.

As for me and UnrealED, I'm a FPS gamer, and the more I think of it, the more I realize that I'm inept for mapping, regardless of how many ideas for level design I may get. The only custom thing I ever managed to build "somewhat" complete was a mappack/quest for a Diablo 1 3d clone that was never released, which was purely built from prefabs ala "The Sims".

PS: Or maybe I'm just lazy. I thought I was a total hack with photoshop before I began practicing with it due to "Rainy Sunday" grade boredom.

Ah haha...10th place lol. I beat you all! Double digits ftw :P

Congrats on winning Waff...but I was rooting for Qtit honestly. IMO I thought his was the best and most original out of everybody's. I look forward to that hub map Qtit...I just wish this didn't have to be for UT only. :rolleyes:
