[Maps] The HiFN Mainstream Map Pack [8/14/11]
« on: January 13, 2011, 11:58:48 PM »
Since the overall overly large 20032x20032 large map was scrapped by me due to how large the map had become, I have separated the map from its whole into a new list of Maps designed with Duel in mind, but adaptable for All Modes; Including Rage Roboneza w/(o) Classes, and Duel w/(o) Classes.

This Project's point is to complement the Map-Line up with more balanced maps for all modes. It will also be a way to replace maps of places that have become bland and uninteresting, due to many of any one factors that recur.

The majority of all work on this map can be credited to me, with the exception of the following people that have helped with an aspect of one of more factors:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Design and Concept
Music Loops
Weapon Creation & Flow
Coding
Playtesting
Bug-Crushing, Hosting, and Feedback. (Detailed Feedback)
To this point, I accredit these following people that I can remember at this moment that have helped.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Messatsu(TheLagless): For Helping me countless times than I can remember.
OrangeMario/Latios(?): For giving detailed information on what to fix in the newly re-vamped Cossack Intergalatic Pathway.
ThatGuy: For Supplying Music for the HiFN_MS_V1A, and for testing HIFN01.
Lio: I promised TG something for contributing. He wanted your Scorpion Weapon. :D And I like it.
King Yamato: For showing me some key defaulting game-flow issues of HIFN01.
Ivory:For Helping test and critique HIFN01, and submitting HIFN10.
SickSadWorld:For creating the Energy Balancer. >:3
JackCorvus: For submitting HIFN08 and 09. Which are both wondrously made.
To Date, These are the Maps Currently inside of HiFN_DM_V1A
Spoiler for Hiden:
All zones will be prefixed with HIFNXX and will go along this number system.
01- Cossack's Intergalactic Pathway 100%
02- The City Limits  35%
03- Demolitionist's Sandbox 0%
04- The Elemental Tower  10%
05- The Elemental Tunnel  10%
06- The Elemental Skyway 0%
07- Mr. X's Hideaway 0%
08- Waterfall Deathtrap - Submitted by JackCorvus
09- Waterworld - Submitted by JackCorvus

Detailing Images Section For Maps
HIFN01 - Cossack's Intergalactic Pathway
Spoiler for Hiden:
Ivory - HIFN10 - (Name in Process)
Spoiler for Hiden:

To All People Interested To Join In: Please Follow the list of instructions of how to contact me back on my server thread.

To All Music/Map/Mod Makers: I want to make something fresh and new to our fair community, and any contributions will help.
If you do choose to back this project with something collab'ed or Solo-made, you and/or the people involved will be accredited and will retain partial rights to the contribution.
Any changes/re-distributions will not be tolerated without Our/Your consent.

Oh, someone actually liked my weapon. That's pretty awesome! But before you include it in, mind if I update it first? There's a lot of things I need to change and balance out.

Of course! I'd love for you to do so.

*EDIT* 5/19/11
I'm working hard on HIFN01, to reformat it. It'll have a main area layout like Topman, only the walls will be Drillman Line Defs. It'll be a boxed maze, with stairs to climb atop it in all three corners, and openings on each perpendicular direction leading N,S,E, and W.  
The inner boxed areas will be Topman-esque, by how it'll have openings on both sides, but it'll have a path inside the area that'll lead to the center room, so that no one will be lost forever.

I could really use some help with it, but I'm toughing it for now.

*EDIT* 5/31/11
HiFn01 is still being fixed and tweaked, and once it's done and checked by Yamato, I will sign it as 100%

Elemental Towers is still being worked on, as well as everything else being on the backburner. I will be partially static due to the Duel Tournament hosted by Rtist. So, bear with me, peeps.

Just my opinion, but you might want to get it tested by more people than just Yamato. May I suggest Celebi, Roc's Creation, and Ivory? All of which can help you with map design for different reasons.

Ofc. If they check in to test this weekend, I'll be happy to host and allow the scamps to run around in my house.

Whew, what a hard month June is turning out to be. This is technically a InfoBump. >[Bump with Updates.]

I've been making good progress in redesigning HiFn01, and now must just figure out the weapons, then I will be able to work on the three-part map themes of the Elementals! [Fanfare]

Once I figure out the map and how it'll go up in design, The Elemental Tower will use SlashMan Tiles for inside and maybe outside if I find the time to design the places for it.

Once I do figure how it'll go up, I'll run a test and a poll for the map, on if there should be an outside battleground, or if it should take place on 32^3 platforms inside.

Also, I'm still looking for a Design team if anyone is willing. I've gotten a few offers and one definite for a Duel Map production, and once submitted, I will add it to the level queue.

Also, if people so wish to create a Duel Centered map, I ask that you add in the Energy Balancer so that players will be able to use it. The thread to download it is here. <<<<<<

I support this!

What kind of sizes are you looking at? Is 2000x2000 good? Bigger/ smaller?

This might be a good pack to put a map towards given the support of this special item.

@SSW: For Duel, you're going to want a map about the size of Skullman in comparison but only about three smudges bigger.
The weapons shouldn't be the run-of-the-mill OPCannons, but things that people will have to learn to use in the places.
The environment should be able to make the players think about the approach, not just rush to grab the nearest weapon and come with chagrin.
And there shouldn't be any big gimmicks to the map. Just simple fragging should suffice.

Bump for the night.

I'm making several changes in HiFn01, and it'll be fixed up for testing soon. I also am experimenting with the Elemental Stages.

If only I wasn't the only one designing.. :T

Bump for the Night, and What an InfoBump it is!
In a fit of genius. I destroyed and completed HIFN01, and tested it with people I trust to help. They have deemed it good as I see it, and with that I strike HIFN01 as DONE!

Expect Screenshots within the next five days.

That's an interesting statement coming from you, -Ran, as you and I both know what it means. So I'll skip to the point: What kind of design are you interested in sharing? I generally reserve my map-input for maps that are completed/largely close to completion, as I know of great deal of creators are protective/possessive/etc. of their ideas and it's easy to offend someone by acting in a way that implies your ideas are superior (even if they are, it takes large integrity to recognize that), or trying to "supplement" someone's ideas. From what I can tell, these are duel maps, correct? I get most of my ideas of map layouts AFTER playing them (which is why I look more at completed maps), so testing would be easy- simply duke it out. So, let me know what you're interested: is it ideas for existing maps, ideas for non-existing maps, or even new maps, I'm interested. I'll hold until you post screens (I'm confident in your mapping ability; you seem fairly competent in this field) but with screens I should be able to get a sense of the map style you're going for (everyone has their own, really).

The other reason I'm operating from a computer that doesn't have skulltag/related wads/skype/etc. so I'm actually not capable of much at the moment. Once I figure out things next week I'll see what I can do (permission given, of course.)
