  • New Map: -=:ToB:=- Paying Sins. Coments + Discussions :)

    OKAY the first public release it out of my map -=:ToB:=-Paying Sins!

    Known errors: room under kitchen trapdoor has a bsp error that gets the screen blury..just look at the floor (doesn't afect gameplay since it's a rarely used area).

    To avoid lag: SO far the only lag people experienced was when they walked out of the thief spawn building, or opened teh windows there. It will lag for a moment then die down. Anyway best way to avoid it is: to exit thief spawn use the bottom door (stairs). And in front of the rat maze area and rat arena if you look at the mansion you will get high polys. Otherwise once you get in the mansion/over the wall you should be fine!

    Tips: seems like there is only way in? NO! there are soo many ways in..about 12..bu most require a vine arrow..or lockpicks.
    Buy lockpicks!!! and a few vine arrows (very very many more places you can go with these)
    Read the scrolls..they give you tips, hidden item locations, story, fun, and can reviel some of the secret areas .
    Learnt he layout (very easy i think)
    There are manys ecret areas..some doors don't open and can't open..well that means there is a secret!!!! look around and you may find a switch near the door somewhere (always somewhere near the dor) Explore the town..there are some places that look like nothing, but really are something..check the windows
    Don't be a dumbass <--you'll know what i mean..many of my beta testers oviously are.
    The square like big pictures..look kindda cheap hu?? maybe there is more to them ..look around near them.....

    Anyway please post flames, comments, suggestions, and whatever else you want about the map here. I hope you guys & gals have fun. I know i sure didn't making it (damn bsp's!!!)

    And if you have a slow pc that really lags on this map..well what can i tell you..sorry but you're shit out of luck, try lower details/ resolution.

    ALSO try to remember..this is the first map i EVER made using UED 2.0 (i made a ut2003 map before but that's it). So no i'm no great mapper...don't make fun of me!! damn it stp!!! ..but really..giveit a try. i suggest you play with as many people as you can get....i had people say it's a big map



    HAVE FUN!

    btw...i had to take teh following things out to make lag better:
    1. all the rats that follow you..except one
    2. all drunk guards
    3. LR, Grank, broken arts, fri..drunk (fri was sleeping with lr on bed while grank and BA were on floor with beer bottles lying face down..all snoring adn LR occasinally laughing (laugh is still in the map ) .....ermm it was in a secret area.
    4. and all the rabbits,
    5. my damn trees..i had a freakinf orest..now a dumb lawn
    6. street lights and much detail and meshes...

    Many hours deleted there just so you guys and gals can have a better frame rate
    :?

    HAVE FUN NOW!

        OK... level looks great... but Framerate is Crazy!! 32MB vid card at the lowest settings in single player mode and I couldn't play more than 5 mins without turning it off. Thats gonna be a big issue for people with low mem vid cards.

        In that 5 min I found:

        Bug 1: Torches in front door of mansion are too high for AI to relight.. they constantly try and stand under them.. but never get them re-lit.

        Bug 2: Not really a bug, just something I noticed: You say in the post above this that you took all the drunken guards out. (Well that would be one thing I'd rather see left in and take something else out... but If you must then thats fine).. but you have to change the First Scroll on the table in Thief spawn to not say "The guards will act drunk" since they wont be anymore.

        I like the Growling sounds... is that just a sound or is there a Burrick up there somewhere?

        Nice Guard names

          Wow, that's one LARGE map. It's an awesome map, don't get me wrong, but the sheer size of it may make online play difficult.

          One problem: there are a bunch of holes in the textures. I'm not talking about BSP problems, I mean actually HOLES. It makes the walls look extremely two dimensional, because I can see right through various walls that are obviously not thick enough to be real walls.

            Just had a round as a guard on this map, was good fun. Looks good, nice layout, some fun secrets and lots of opportunity for the guards to shoot out of the windows to the thieves below.

            Can't tell you any thief team impressions as Shadowrodent and Sneaksy picked thieves again the next round, so it was all thieves, no guards. I quit the server. :roll:

            Yes, the framerate is dodgy, but didn't hurt the game too much.

              How about putting a kill zone at the bottom of where you're a dumbass.

                if i left the drunk sin the fame rate would be 4 instead out 25ish..no joke

                and yes that is a texture problem...i saw it in flats also, and some other maps..it's weird..anyway..here's a shot of what you should try NOT to go

                a good guard at work (paranoid guard but good)..yet kindda cheap:

                      Very nice DP. A few BSP holes (most of which i am sure you are aware.)

                      Framerate can still be little chunky outdoors... ...but not too bad.

                      Love all the secrets and stuff... *Grrrrvvvoooooooooooommmm*

                        :grin: great map, huge in size, in fact i played it for 10 mins and i only had 2500 loot, and yer need 5000!

                        will take a while to do online, but i feel that the gem on the map may turn out to be another korman flashback of major gem guardig

                        but i loove it, 1 problem tho, why so many notes?, it would take all day to read them all! :lol:

                            The notes are fine. I mean they are there for newbies. once you read them once or twice .. you have no reason to read them again so leave them alone.
                            Framerate is still killing me though. Especially in the front yard. Time to look on ebay for a new vidcard.
