The Villa is back!

Postby Barto » Mon Mar 07, 2011 7:50 pm

I am glad to announce that my next map will come on the 14th March. :-)
It is in fact my first mapping-project (even before dm_xmas) and I wasn't sure recently that I will be able to finish it... I still remember that I was kidding for the release date of my map by saying "When it's done!, as 3d Realms said".

My map is in fact a remade from one of the old Western Quake 3 1.2 map which is "The Villa" from around 2001.

Now a check-list:
  • team overlay compatibility - CHECK
  • new sound effect - CHECK
  • high resolution lightmap - CHECK
  • bank robbery mode - CHECK
  • deathmatch mode - CHECK
  • last SVN version compatibility - CHECK
  • copyrights from ICI - CHECK
  • future creative commons licence - CHECK
  • and more and more... - CHECK :lol:

OK, that was theory... Now let's see:

The first screenshot (unpair) was made in WQ1.2 and the second (pair) in SG



For sure, a first map cannot be made alone, I got some help from other gunslingers which are:
  • Pardner
  • Languid_Plates
  • Joe Kari
  • GenDago
  • Myrmidonas
  • HighSteric
  • and many other...
Also thank you guys and stay tuned for the 14th! :wink:


PS: sorry if I made some english mistakes.

==EDIT==
Map was released and could be downloaded here.
There is also the sources which could be found
here.

Oh zut :oops:
I forgot that [BACON]'s were hosting one beta version. (that was more a single test of the map before the announcement)
We tested it to see what should be done in the gameplay, in particular the bank robbery mode... I did few changes since (not much in the map itself but in cfgs and the license) but if you see some huge bugs, just call me and I will try fix them.

We are the 14th

Postby Barto » Mon Mar 14, 2011 5:25 pm

So we are the 14th !

Firstly here are the hashes from the map:
Code: Select all
File Size:
8,014,026 octets *dm-br_villa.pk3

MD5SUM:
89559c618ea6aa5082700fc540acfd23 *dm-br_villa.pk3

SHA1SUM:
8267556a061d02d9a6995c6056d70cddebeadaae *dm-br_villa.pk3


Secondly, here are the download link of the map

GameFront

If you need other mirror or the link is down, just say it to me!

I just made another .zip archive with other files that I created with the map (like the models or the levelshots). Here it is. I hope I will see the models in the future mapping SDK or another map :)

If you want more informations about the map, you can look into the README.txt or the LICENSE.url which are in the map data.

I hope i will be able to play it with some other players soon on one of the servers that allow custom map-list :wink:

As i already told, this map is now under creative commons license (CC BY-NC 3.0)
You can get the map sources into the map data or in the .zip archive upper.

PS: Don't forget to tell me some feedback of it :lol:

I was pretty excited untill I realized you only modified Fakeys original map file. And only a little. :? A total remake could have been epic.
But converting someone elses work is how I got started too, so I won't scold you too much for it & it's a great way to learn level design. The maps I converted were eventually recreated from scratch so that they fit SG much better. Namely, Train & Town. Maybe you might consider doing the same thing someday.
Btw, you have entirely too many money pickups imo.
