ut4 BlackIcy Beta1

Well, it's taken about a year, but here is the first beta of my first icy map. I have been without internet for the year aside from my phone, so I havent tested the map online, but I have been play testing the hell out of it myself and there shouldn't be any lemming spots. My only real concerns are that many jumps will be easier than intended, and there is one hall where the floor drops out that I am worried about people falling out of the map. These will be adressed in future updates if needed.

Map difficulty: Easy to kinda hard. I can do all the jumps, but I can't finish galaxy, if that is any sort of indicator.
I forget how many regular jumps there are, but there are three uberleets, one secret jump, and a puzzle room.

The map is 46+ mb, so it's a big one, but not the biggest urt map out there.

Hope you enjoy.

EDIT: I couldn't figure out how to add the map to the main repository...sorry if this is not the right way to do this.

Re: ut4 BlackIcy Beta1

Nice story ragequit.
I start uploading it to the website now, will take more than 5 minutes im sure.

Biggest Sized jumpmap i know is ut4_ikarus_dev, the old version was 77 mb, the latest version was something like 99 mb. (Both unavailable here, but search on internet (its a german database, website with .de in its name xD) and you will find both)

This is okay RageQuit.
If you want to upload your maps yourself, then go to Your Profile, then select Maps Upload.
That saves us moderators time
But that map must first be checked by a admin, so it will be on website but invisible untill a moderator has done somehing secrety with it, and then he makes it public. So in the end, it doenst matter much, only moderators can publish maps, but its nice if mappers upload it themselves.

@Noxtty: I think you can add description only when you upload the map (maybe later too, idk), but im not sure since i have only uploaded maps since in a mod, and not before, and the user menus are a bit different than the mod menus i think.
Anyway, just send a PM with info to any moderator, or post it in your maptopic, and soon the right data will be added to the datasheet.

What the hell O_O
This map is freaking me out, someone should try to play it at night, alone
Gives me creeps

Oh btw you should really consider making a lighter version, it gave me bad command byte error and had to move every map out of q3ut4 to start yours

Re: ut4 BlackIcy Beta1

Epic mapdesign, very nice!
I passed 2 jumps, and tried about 10 others, very hard for me. But the map looks cool as far as i can say it!

(PS: I could run map fine, didnt had to delete other maps)

Re: ut4 BlackIcy Beta1

Does anyone know specifically what the error message says? I still have a pretty limited understanding of some of the more technical things, so I have to Google most errors. Its a pretty big/complex map though, so getting it to work has easily been the hardest part.

Thanks for the positive feedback driller. I was worried people would be bothered by the design honestly.

CL_ParseGamestate: bad command byte

It's caused by the huge size/amount of entities in the map
Deleting some of those transition rooms (like the uber-tall tower with ladder and epic snake thingy) and func tentacles may fix it

Re: ut4 BlackIcy Beta1

except for the fact that the perfect sounds weird :S
this is the last jump i could reach, after this there's only a boring room with 2 routes that makes u lemming in any case, where i should go???
I found a lemmign dpot at the boost jump, after the first pump.
Map is good, uber long because of long rooms between a jump and another. Where are the other jumps (uber leets?) i leeted all the jumps but no way to find leet jumps :z

Re: ut4 BlackIcy Beta1

The 2 ways room should be the end, which fails in 4.2 btw because you can't die tongue

Re: ut4 BlackIcy Beta1

Ha, yeah, I was kinda sad when I learned about the ability to turn off lemmings. That is the fake end though. All I will say about getting to the uber leets is that there is a door and button on the last jump, but not the door Gio shows in his video. You have to finish the uberleets to stay alive.


I will try deleting some more for the next release. Hopefully that will help.

Gio, where was the lemming on the booster jump?

Re: ut4 BlackIcy Beta1

ya.... i got to the part where the perfect audio spam happens. and the loop there is bad =/ either get caught or miss and get sent backwards. Also, the death dance is monster of a jump tongue

p.s. i know its this is years old and im just now posting on it tongue

I believe the jump is called "i live at the end"

Re: ut4 BlackIcy Beta1

Yo. Yeah, man that loop is wonky. I was never really able to figure out Rambetters instructions for making a good loop, so I just messed with it until it mostly worked. Never saw it send you backwards though...that's weird. There is a specific way you have to hit it. Like when you flick has to be just right. If you search around here someone made an awesome video that shows it pretty well.

Deadth dance was like the idea that I first had for the map. It changed a lot, but that was like the main jump I wanted to make. smile

If I ever get a computer again and can get Radiant working I would still love to update this map at some point.
