New unnamed map - Boredom Rising maybe

Well i tried to map some more stuff for bstjumps but had a failure of brain.  Maybe i need some more time to relax, who knows.

So i just decided to make something random and not to big.  Another laddermadness maybe but without the annoyance factor.  Its not finished yet and it has some crazy ideas in it that maybe give it parallels between a small ctf frag map (but without the flags, but i may put flags in) and a jump map.  Yes driller i put a frag section in so you and body can continue your deviant ways on his server.  Or you can just do the jumps.

It will be fairly short, maybe 10-15 jumps,  Its just for fun this and to get me back into mapping again after my break.

No criticism please, this is what is required at this point.

I hear you ask for screenshots, ok here you go:

Re: New unnamed map - Boredom Rising maybe

I actually am using some newish textures i found on a site.  The site is posted in mapping links, and has a lot of nice 512x512 textures that are royalty free.  When i look at it in game i really like the way they look. smile

So this will be visually nice as well as playable.

You can actually download the Genetica Viewer for free and modify and resize and render those textures. I used those textures for Happy World Jumps. smile


Have a happy day!

No idea if Genetica is available for Linux.  Besides the 512x512 images were more than adequate. 

The map is nearing completion.  Jump wise maybe 10 jumps in the end.  Short and sweet.  Also there arent many respawns or teleporters available.  Because frankly i couldnt be bothered trying to make it so i could include them.  The second room only has a handful of reasonably easy jumps so i cant see the point.

Should be ready in a couple of days.

Thinking of calling it Project6.

Re: New unnamed map - Boredom Rising maybe

It's nothing unusual that more than one map uses the same texture. My guess is that this blue floor texture is used in more than 20 maps. Maybe I will take the time and really count and provide a list with screenshots which maps use this texture. smile

To be honest Mr Happy, i was the first person to use that blue patterned floor in a map (that i know of), when i used it on jump 3 of basicjumps (many moons ago).  Then everyone else has copied it.  Its probably the most overused texture in jump mapping. Though i do lol, at being a trendsetter. I also see Richard has used textures ive used in maps before him too.

But these new textures are a whole lot better and nicer than maybe anything ive used previously.  Vibrant colours and sharp contrasts.  My only issue is most arent seamless.

If you guys find new texture sites, post them in map links for everyone to use.  You can never have to many textures. smile

Re: New unnamed map - Boredom Rising maybe

I do have to say picture one of your map looks fookin awesome. smile

Also i couldnt use that texture as a) it wasnt seamless, and b) if you look at it closely it has some patterns that arent random enough, which were quite annoying when looking at it.  It looks ok in your map, but in mine it didnt fit, so i used something else. smile

Re: New unnamed map - Boredom Rising maybe

This may be a bit shorter than 10 jumps.  I am going to push a version out later.
