  • It's billboard time again :p

    My 2nd map is getting close to having everything but the detailing/texturing done. It pretty much has nothing to do with what I showed of it in the TacMod forums because I had to change it due to the no parachutes change of 1.3 and my original layout sucked anyway :p.

    The map is still a middle-eastern urbanish map but it's more like Mashtuur than Karkand in that it uses terrain a lot. I still have some billboards leftover from Inishail but if anyone wanted to make one, you should have plenty of time to do it now (at least 2 weeks).

    The billboard must be 512x300. It must fit in a middle-east setting (as far as the colors go, the actual theme doesn't have to be realistic). I don't want something that stands out too much so I'm looking for something that looks semi-professional and I would prefer something that promotes Tactical Mod and/or TG and is more serious than the Inishail submissions I got (as much as I liked them :p). If you read this thread, H-Hour posts instructions and a link to a file he made that has a bunch of "decals" to make your billboard look "aged" and more realistic. I know I sound a bit demanding especially since I'm basically asking for free stuff :p but I really want something that fits naturally in the map (like the orange billboard H-Hour made in Inishail and the Bommando School of Medics one, they both look very good in-game).

    The map no longer has a golf course so don't make any golf-themed ones.

    You can upload your image in .png format (better quality) at http://www.imageshack.us and post it here.

    I can only pick 3 or 4 billboards so participate at your own risk :p. And thanks in advance :)

    I'm going to copy this thread to the Pics/screenshots forum, so there will be on here and one there. That should get you more participation.

            I had taken the sample_billboard.zip file down, but now it's back up in slightly different form.

              Kilrogg, do u have a gas station on ur map and plan to put a billboard near it??
              i had an idea to try to make a sign with gas prices and everything in arabic, but it would be pointless if there were no gas stations



              Here is the one i made last time for ur 2nd map


              i have a bunch of funny ones coming as well

                  That's gonna be kinda hard to read in-game. You have to take into account the lower quality of the texture when it's in-game, small or heavily deformed text (or a combination of both :p) is hard to read.
