Title: Recreation - A Map Project
Post by: fortegigasgospel on July 08, 2019, 10:15:09 AM
Howdy folks FGG here with an all new project that I've been working on called "Recreation"
Pick up v1.0h >Here< (https://allfearthesentinel.net/zandronum/download.php?file=recreation-ctf_v1.0h.pk3) (Recreation-CTF_v1.0) which features RCTF01 - 08
The goal of this project is to take maps from other games, and recreate them for 8bdm.
Now the thing is, I'm making this a community project, so anyone can submit a map for project (hit me up on discord), the only requirement being, it is a replica of a map from some other game.
A few guidelines to follow
The map doesn't have to be an exact 1 for 1 recreation, feel free to add sections to the map to increase flow or if the game had a mechanic that we here in 8bdm do not.
The map should be recognizable from it's original source, but you do not have to use custom textures if you do not want to.
Follow your typical 8bdm map guidelines.

The current maps
RCTF01 - The Duel, replicated from the map of the same name from Star Wars: Jedi Knight, Dark Forces II, made by FGG

And yes, those scoreboards do work (thanks to Bika)

As a foot note: I have a list of about 10 maps I'm going to be recreating regardless, they do all happen to be CTF maps, so this project will be progressing even without submissions. Though if someone would be willing to offer up services in helping me get some non-core music for the maps, it would be much appreciated.

Interesting idea!

I've had thoughts in the past where I'm playing another FPS and I wonder how well it would translate to MM8BDM. This seems like a good avenue to test these thoughts out.

I recreated a COD map a few months back but I unfortunately lost it because my old computer stopped working.

2 more maps have been added, 1 old and 1 new. Original post has been updated with them already.
The Watchman of the Coast, by CutmanMike, who gave permission to add it to the pack!

and Lijiang Tower Control Center, by Trillster, another Overwatch map!

I've seen others showing interest in making maps, the first public release will be this weekend in case any more maps are being made, if I know that someone is making a map I'll be willing to postpone the release as well.

We've also got some map cards to go along with the project, column 1 is made by myself, column 2 is made by Trillster, with some potential future games included accounted for already.

How about some Team Fortress 2 or Unreal Tournament maps? I'd love to see 2fort and Facing Worlds if possible.

EDIT: Whoops, did not see the TF2 map card. UT maps would still be cool though.

I wanna note, I can't make maps of games I don't own, others are chipping in on maps they want to make also, the best course of action is to grab a map maker program and get drawing some linedefs of the maps you want to see. The TF2 mapcard is because there might be a TF2 map floating around, but I don't know who made it, and there could easily be TF2 maps in the future if people make any.

RCTF08 - Longest, replicated from Halo, made by Trillster which is adding a snazzy new Halo map card made by Pegg to the collection

Anyone who does happen to be working on a map that wants it in by release please let me know so I can be sure to give you time.

Recreation-CTF_v1.0 is out, check the beginning of the first post for the link! RCTF01 - 08 are included.

Ok, couple of fixes that needed to be made so a hotfix version is out. I forgot that Nehpets Towers unlinked all the pits so I needed to put kill actors into them, and the platforms needed them under them too, BHB has been replaced in Lijiang as well, also behind the scenes the song for Longest has a different code.

Curious, how feasible do you think Mario Kart Battle Mode maps would be for something like this?

I've been playing around on them a bit (mostly the ones from MK8 Deluxe) and thought maybe a few would be interesting to see in MM8BDM.
If I tried making a few and slapped some Mario Maker 2 assets on em, would there be interest in that? Or would it be too strange or out of this project's scope?

Honestly it meets the specifications, I have contemplated looking into some less obvious sources also such as MK and other things that could probably be most suited for duel sized maps. So yea that would be what the project is looking for!

On another note, I've had a pretty busy last couple of weeks which is why I've been holding off on making more maps. Soon enough I'll be back into the swing, and I'm also going to be making the maps so far compatible for Evil Escort so that Bika's game modes mod can make use of them with it before I go tackling more maps, from then on the maps will be having that compatibility going forward so newer releases will already be ready for it.

Good to know! I'll start doing a bit of research, look into which ones would make for good ones, then hopefully have at least one to show relatively soon.

Its been half a year, been busy working on other things and giving time for people to work on maps since a bunch of people showed interest.
The next set of maps I am working on will be non-CTF focused and the first of which is done
RCDM01 - VRTemple, which is recreated from Phantasy Star Online Episode 1&2's battle mode "Battle Rule 2" is the first of these maps, a very simple layout (which is why this is going before BR1) which matches it's CTF counterpart.

VRSpaceship which will be Battle Rule 1, and Lassic's Lair which will be Battle Rule 4 are the next two maps I plan to make for this.
