Hey fellow mappers, I am kicking off a project. Its not necessarily co-op, but close. I am calling the series of these maps "Deth Qube".
Dirtrevel, Sabotur, Maxpower and I have created some already. These will be uploaded on PSN: Deth_Qube
The intention is to make a bunch of these by different authors and host Deth Qube matches. There are kinda like little battle arenas. If you fall off the edge you die.
Try to stay within these boundaries:
-download template map from the 'Deth_Qube' account
-spawn buildings and points remain the same
-try to keep everything balanced for each team
-adjust TOD to your liking
-name it Deth Qube *******
The point is, simple small, fun with balanced gameplay.
If you made one and would like it uploaded to the Deth Qube account, send me a PM
-Kyle aka akilyoung
Deth Qube maps so far and author:
-Dirt Revel (Dirt Revel)
-Dirt Rev2 (Dirt Revel)
-Mini Golf (akilyoung)
-Skill Test (akilyoung)
-unnamed qube by Maxpower (will be finished very soon)
This list will be edited as more are created.
If you create a bada$$ Deth Qube and want it published to the MMA account, email the files to me at email@example.com and I will review it.
Just a quick update. I have seen a preview of Maxpower's Deth Qube and he revised the spawn bases. If these new bases turn out to be superior (which I am sure they will), I will base a new template off of his DQ and delete the old template. Just FYI.......So If your considering doing a Qube soon, hold off for now and see if we come up with a new template. Thanks------
Alright, Maxpower finshed his Qube and gameplay footage can be seen here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVXA_WiWr_0
Its called 'Defender', and plays superbly.
You may want ot hold off on DL'ing for a few days, I believe Maxpower is gonna revise the bases to deter campers. Other then that, you can get the feel of the gameflow in the vid
Anyway - thanks again Max - I really appreciate heartfelt intentions - and thanks akil for adding so much enthusiasm and passion back into the game.
Sab, thank you very much for your kind words! I am gonna cop/paste this in a msg to Max incase he doesnt see this any time soon. I know he will appreciate this. We will keep this momentum up right into fc3 and the sky will be the limit!
2 other notes:
-I am really looking forward to getting my hands on the map we just looked at, I really like where its going, and the terrain will be great.
-The map you played with us the other night that me and Deez made was updated and reupload today. Lots of minor and semi-minor changes to improve gameplay and the feel. It was called "CDG_MMA:8up" I think youll like the final product, just delete the old version since it was slightly buggy. I managed to get the frames up on the bridge by carefully placed OCC blocks. The color palette has been changed to match the scenery too, that and alot more. (gotta love the testing phase....)
I have read your post and found it very informative and useful for everyone and I would like to thankful to you for discussing this topic here and providing us such nice and useful information regarding to this topic. I really appreciate the effort of the members who make contribute in the forum and in this discussion. I have learn many things from here and now I have the knowledge of many things which I don't know before. Thanks again
