    Post The Mapping & Scripting Forum Petition

    A humble attempt to get a separate "mapping and scripting" forum for Alien Swarm. I think in the last two weeks there has been enough traffic about mapping and scripting issues to warrant a separate forum. These messages are scattered between the Alien Swarm and Tech Help forums, the threads are normally short lived, and that makes it hard to find them when one needs a quick reference.

    So let's see what most of you think, and how many want a dedicated forum. Vote in the poll: Would you like a separate Alien Swarm mapping and scripting forum ?

    I agree with Butters and vote yes of course. This has been suggested or hinted quite a few times without a proper response from those in charge. Is there a reason why there shouldn’t be a separate AS mapping forum here? Could someone clue me on this? Anyway, I think it would make a lot of people happy. Vote now all of you…

    Please?

    I don't really understand why nightblade gets a forum and it won't even be released until next year, but AS (which is lacking in the content department) doesn't got one :0)

    Do I need to make a paypal donation? ;0)

    I'd like to see a mapping forum for Alienswarm as well. I'm not sure why the request was ignored last time but it feels like our efforts to bring new content are not being encouraged at all.

    I'd say have all the mapping forums in one, because otherwise people will probably repeat general mapping questions in mapping forums for TUT, AS, and NB.

    Maybe put them all in a group like AS is in its own group ... have a group of Mapping forums with one titled "General UnrealEd Mapping" ?

    That's an interesting option, but on the other hand, it could make that merged forum a bit of a mess. The TUT mapping forum has over 200 threads, AS mapping related threads could well be over 50 right now, Nigthblade specific questions will definitely soar once it's launched...

    That means for someone mapping for AS, 2/3 threads could not be related at all to what he needs (there will be people interested in all three of course). There is always repetition of questions even in a single forum with a well defined topic. If you make finding previous topics more difficult you will increase the number of repetitions too.

    Looks at the cool icons on the top of the forum display page. That's where the map download sites are "stickied" now.

    Telling you I voted yes is quite redundant, but I'll say it anyway.

    I voted yes.
