It will be a skyisland map, with a heavy skycity theme. As a developing version I will be using 225 and perhaps 227 too, given that I convert it back in and use 225 editor later for some fine tuning.
As for the plot, I will make up something as I go, but it will be probably a plot that you end up on the sky island and have to recover some artifact or something, just classic stuff.

Despite the uninspiring description of what is to be made, I actually look forward to this. The sky island theme never gets old for me and I still enjoy the classic premise with it's resulting romp.

Some of Unreal's levels had no particular place in the story, you just passed through them taking in the atmosphere and killing Skaarj/Krall/Rabbits.
This map could be interesting.

UPDATES FROM LEO (BeyondUnreal thread, direct quote)

Update 05-01-2011:

IOShots.rar

Took some screenshots, this is pretty much all there is to the map now, heavily unfinished, I know.

Update 05-05-2011:



Just started working on a new cavern. The caverns will probably take me most of time, because I have to move vertices all around and stuff. It's rather time consuming, but I won't spend too much time on that, that cave outline is basically done as a single brush, only I will have to add additional rocks around and stalactites.

Update 05-23-2011:

Time for cutting room floor:



This waterfall won't make it in final version, because it causes some BSP bugs and ****. I will make another one, but it was pain to align this one though. Well, bye bye waterfall!

Update 05-28-2011:

Basically, this is last part of the caves/abandoned mines section, I had staircase here before but it didn't fit much, the room isn't yet complete but I made a lift there instead and openable broken rusty roof.






This is what happens if you ride lift with the closed roof, it crushes you. :lol:

Isle of Sharighar Demo

Quote from Leo:

Consider this finished, unless the contest time or submission time is gonna be extended. I called it demo, because I had to cut some stuff that I wouldn't wrap up etc. It was supposed to be larger, there is one of the unfinished rooms the first room I started to work on, inside the second island, if you want to use ghost to take a look, also some easter eggs there.

Nice mix of themes and use of some mine textures that I hardly remember existed. :)

I liked the skybox and the initial outdoor impressions. The cave sequence was pretty cool too

[spoiler]This level gave me the vibe an early Unreal custom map in a good way. The architecture is mostly simple (and the terrain varies too much between very bumpy and very flat) and the lighting isn't that great, but it has a cool sense of experimentation and a certain feeling of not being sure what's coming up next. I also liked the curvy stair things in the church, even if they're really hard to climb (good thing there's a lift). The gameplay worked too with the small fights throughout and Titan arena with various options given by the presence of jump-boots, although I ended up just avoiding it. The ending came a bit suddenly though.[/spoiler]

Played on Medium and then on Unreal (wanted to see the Titan).

It's a decent map but there's no awe. The ledge to get the ammo for the stinger is a pain, luckily it's in the beginning of the level so there's not much to redo when luck fails you.
The roof which has to be opened before trying the lift was a nice touch. The titan area is a bit too empty and resistance inside and outside the building isn't really up to today's gameplay standards. Those spiral stairs were impossible to climb for me. I dind't see the point of the breaking glass.
Overall though the major fault in this map is gameplay, there was just too little to do for such a large area. But, I do see potential in this (it is after all a demo).
It's not a contest winner and to be fair, I was expecting a bit more from LEO (I don't really know why because I'm not familiar with his work).



Only 2 more maps to test (ibyn_gold and usp_turbo), hopefully today.

The gameplay is the best point about this map. It's fun and extremely balanced, even without the DP, which is a great achievement.
I only played the [U] version, which is the same for every other contest level.

We usually have totally different ideas about gameplay. \o/

So far a 5 is about right even with all th anti LEO hype.

For one thing, all I had to do was wait to let krall and skaar fight while hiding behind bulding on top.
but the level does have a good feeling of being in suspense.

The skaar went behibd the rock cave, then nailed hin no prob.

still playing, and if you really wanna bitch out sana. lol, I need more time to play all these maps in 7 days, do I look like like god , lololo.

I pushed that button, not sure what to do now, I don't see any lifts yet, like skytowns.

And LEO I catch your drift, just leave it at home and everyone will love you.You did a lot so far as I played, but some frustrating things.
I wanted to get out of water first jump, very pissed for a moving SP mappage.
It should have an easy path to get out. aaaaaarg. so I had to kill myself.
Just ban everyone
