  • ns_shivab5 is on the server

    Attached are labeled minimaps. Do feel free to evaluate the map and share your opinion about whether or not it should be added to the rotation.

    The video feeds we received clearly show that we are dealing with Kharaa, and indicate three primary areas of infestation. The sample analysis room has been most severely infected which is to be expected considering that it was the original source. The infection appears to have spread through a ventilation shaft to the primary datacore where the bacterium is feeding off of the heat from the storage units. From there it spread through the nanocoolant to the coolant processing pumps. We expect one of these three areas to reach hive critical mass in the next 24 hours.

        There's an invisible wall in double, there are tons of paths that dont go anywhere except a dead end, it's hard to lerk or fade, difficult for onos's to move around, many paths in the water-hive that dont go anywhere, you get stuck on anything and everything, you can't hear anything in the Coolant hive because the steam coming from the pipe is louder than everything else, and there are 2 holes in the middle of the map that serve no purpose except to fall in and die.


        Is that enough?

          Is this based on the version we played on the TG server a while back, or the more recent beta5?

            Where are these things? Give me as much information as you can so I can fix them.
            The invisible wall in double for instance. I've never run across it.
            Also, where are these dead ends you are referring to? And in datacore hive? Its just one big room . . .

              moultano is, of course, the map's creator.

              Hopefully we can give you feedback that will help improve the map, moultano.

                We (briefly) discussed this before, as shiva beta 4.
                http://www.tacticalgamer.com/showthread.php?t=33793

                I'm looking forward to seeing the most recent version.

                EDIT: That wasn't beta4 that was beta2a (guessing from the file name of the screenshot)

                  Incidentally, there is a more recent version than this. I didn't advertise it widely, cause I was really rushed to get it out in time for the CAL preseason this weekend.

                  Here's the changelog and download
                  http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/user/rmoul..._shivab5.1.zip

                  Changelog:
                  -fixed spawning in middle of nowhere bug (hopefully)
                  -raised commander view by ~300 units
                  -fixed a stuck issue for fades in datacore
                  -twiddled hive and spawn locations in datacore to hopefully clear up the illusive "structure in the way" placement bug.
                  -added ~100 units to the height of cryochambers
                  -added ladder in maintenance to second conveyor door area
                  -added ~32 units to selected hallways around marine start and elsewhere
                  -modified particle systems to be friendlier to lower end systems
                  -tweaked lighting and texturing in draft shafts
                  -improved r_speeds in some locations

                      Now see, was that so hard?

                      Is that enough?
                      Attitude? Yes, thank you.

                          There's something wrong with the autodownloading of this map. We just switched the map over and my client autodownloaded ns_shivab5.1.bsp and sprites/ns_shiva/thanks.spr When the map loaded, HL crashed with the complaint "cannot load ns_shiva.wad"

                          To verify it, I retried several times, then exited steam/hl and deleted the shiva files, then tried to reconnect. It still failed with the same error. The link to the zip file in this thread does include a shiva .wad file and other files, which I am about to try. If I don't post again, the zip file worked.

                            I had the same problem Zib. I ended up having to find the specific files and moving them to where they were supposed to be.

                              I had the same problem on a diff server, I think it's probably the . in the name.
