This is the project thread for my map which I've given the lame temporary name "Black Hole". Some tentative information:

- It will be heavily story driven with a large amount translator messages
- It will be set on NaPali
- The plot revolves around a crashed Inuit vessel
- It will feature a coastal Nali town as well as Skaarj ship.

I hope this sounds interesting to you :o I haven't began mapping yet but I've written the entire script.

And just so I don't leave you completely empty handed, here's a little translator message from the script to (hopefully) wet your appetites.

“I’ve been told that humans have visited our village today while I was out hunting. It appears they’ve set up camp in the narrow cravass leading to the canyon in the north. I’m sorry to have missed it. Not since the three human carriages came down from the sky many cycles ago have humans passed our village, and I was too young at the time. Maybe I shall make the trek north and visit their camp, I’m curious to see what they are like.”

Coastal towns... that's always been my speciality (in mapping and fan fiction). I expect you'll do it well, though! (much better than I did in my old map packs, for sure).

Make sure that all of these translator events aren't something like Zero Black where you get an overload of useless trash.

Nope, no useless trash here, they will all be connected to the story in some way. (And no diaries of dead people along the lines of: I've escaped the ship but I'm nearly dead, I've just got 2 bullets and the Skaarj are everywhere)

Anyone know where I can get the program that converts .3DS files to .T3D files for converting terrain to a format UEd can handle? I seem to have lost it.
